  • Do you people also see systematic discrimination against Pub Ad? And compare the average marks in Pub Ad with optionals like Anthro..
  • 110+127 - 237
  • Please share the test series coaching and materials also. @Matrix_Reloaded
    What do you think worked for you in pub ad?
  • @Shahnawaz_441 which optional you are thinking to choose?

    GS 88+71+80+88
    Essay 73
  • @Gandhi
    Sociology (in past appeared in Mains with it)
    History (Best available choice but need to invest time)
    other possible choices are Anthro and Psycho, but i have to start from scratch.

    (Background: BE Computer Engg)

    So as of now to bring some kind of objectivity(or mere feeling while writing answers in mains exam hall) i am going with sociology.
    Pub Ad....Naam hi kaafi hai.
