@ankitbhargava06,

To become Data Scientist or I must say for successful data scientist, you should have various skill sets like:

  • Good with numbers
  • Structured approach of problem solving
  • Statistical knowledge
  • Know at least one of the two languages (R or Python)
  • Machine Learning algorithms
