Why Sociology Optional?


Picking an Optional Subject out of the myriad choices available, is the biggest dilemma faced by most fresh Civil Service aspirants. You come across an infinite amount of insights on different subjects, their pros, cons, and testimonials from successful candidates. However, there are a host of factors to be taken into account while making this crucial choice:

  • Your interest towards the subject – Since you would be allotting a considerable fraction of your preparation time to the Optional subject, its wiser to pick a paper that you are interested in.
  • Scoring potential of the paper – Choosing papers that are high scoring lets you offset the uncertainty in the GS papers and increases your likelihood of getting a better rank.
  • Size and nature of syllabus
  • Availability of good coaching/guidance
  • Abundance of study material and test series
