  • Dear All,

    I'm a serving Civil Services officer of Batch 2013 and I have cleared the examination in my first attempt. I had Sociology as an optional as well and over the last few years, I have given valuable feedback to several students during their preparation with their optional, essay and GS. Me along with a few others are looking to do this professionally and can give you feedback on your answer scripts for a nominal fee. Do drop me a mail if you are interested. I'm available on poojappalicha@gmail.com. All the best!
