    lots of things were changed
    For starters
    Practiced answer writing and made my notes
    Read from Text books not classes notes
    however lack of paper writing practice got me in Paper 1 - could have done better :(

    How useful are mahapatra sir notes? I saw class notes and they were not properly organized.

    And how to make notes from so many books ignou, harlombos, class notes. Everything is so much scattered

    If it's not very time taking, could you please enlist the books you referred to?
    Thanks in advance!

    Lot of my friends have also cleared with socio. They don't login to forum that's why you don't see their status posts here. In fact, most of those guys who made it to interviews with socio last time have cleared this year also. So, don't go by the trend in forum.

    Personally, I can't tell if I have got in due to a good optional score or GS marks. Will have to wait until final results for a better analysis.

    As you have mentioned, lot of your friends have cleared with socio, can you help with some info?
    A) Where do you guys live? Delhi?
    B) Do you have some online group?

    Thanks a ton.
    But please do post your strategy whenever you get time. Thanks again
  • Tell strategy for ppr 1 last year in ppr 1 i scored109 in ppr two 151
  • Sociology doesn't ruin your chances.
    It gives you results corresponding to the effort you make.
    I have given 2 interviews with Sociology. Scored 298 in Sociology yet could not make it through because of GS-2. All I can say is to write a lot with Sociology. And get them evaluated from someone good with the subject in your friend circle. You will see drastic improvement in your scores.
  • Out in 3rd mains....
  • Out with socio 5 mains and 2 interview
