Sociology Marks Mains 2012 - Sociology - UPSC 2013
Sociology Marks Mains 2012
  • I got 168 in sociology in mains. I want to know what were the average marks or the general trend in marking so that I can know how much am I lagging behind.
  • I think most of the people who made it to the list got around 230-240 in Sociology, with Paper-I being (just a little) more scoring than Paper-II. By the way, how was your preparation, were you satisfied with it?

  • My marks
    socio paper 1 -138
    socio paper 2- 75
    remark - I could not finish the syllabus of paper 2 and had to suffer (even could not retain the basics).
    I think average marks should be around 230 only.

    For paper 1 I followed IGNOU (BA+MA) material along with haralambous .I did not use any coaching material to be honest.

  • @kafka - that was my first attempt so I was not even sure about the prelims. I started preparing after the result so I was not up to the mark.

    @aman8770 -man you really got good score :)>-
  • 130+98=228
  • @Devil
    I got decent marks in paper 1 but in paper 2 i have seen people getting very good marks ranging 120 to 140
    but it's fine nobody to blame after all that is what i deserved (given that i could not retain the basics also).
  • @aman8770
    Any intention of taking sociology this year? I am taking it.
  • @Devil
    I have no other option as my other optional was PA where i put lot of effort but in vain so i will also go for sociology .anyway what's your strategy??
  • @aman8770

    I have also dropped PA and going with sociology. Well our preparation of PA earlier will certainly help us in paper 4 of GS.
