anthropology guys----need help,urgent

edited May 2015 in Miscellaneous
guys...i hve given mains twice with sociology...last time my score was very low....waiting for this years mark sheet...cudnt qualify for interview...i want to shift to anthropology...have never studied it and will be able to start it after prelims only..i checked its syllabus and its very much similar to sociology...paper 2 almost my query is can i complete it to achieve good marks in 3 months post prelims...pls help as i need to fill the form urgently.


  • You can complete it in 3 months...but good marks also vacillation here. looking at UPSC report its confirmed that this subject also sees its lows

    Its highly unlikely that you will score good in anthro if you cant do the same in socio. Besides anthro hasn't done too good this year. The overlap is superficial and I'd say covers only 20%. Paper 1 is bio oriented, if you are comfortable in 12th level biology, 3 months would suffice but would require enormous efforts as there are no single(or double or even triple) source to cover the syllabus.

    Sorry to be blunt.....If you have given mains with socio twice better stick to it, do some things nobody ordinarily does in it and focus on things like essay and is upto you.
  • @Satya123 : can i get access to that report? I want to see the analysis of commerce and accountancy.
    Manzil mile na mile ye to muqaddar ki baat hain, Hum koshish bhi na kare ye toh galat baat hain.
