Dear Students,

In these unprecedented times, a dose of positive news is always welcome and let’s starts with the first one.

Ten students out of seventy from the recent Sociology batch have been selected for the final frontier –The personality test. We hope they find their name in the coveted final list. 

This is quite a feat as we could not imagine this when we started our first series batch in late 2018.

Now for the bigger dose of good news-

The current situation has also made us to make not only the test series but also the entire Optional Classroom Program into ONLINE mode“Sociology-e Classroom Learning Programme( e-CLP).

So we have come with two programs

  • All in One Program (Classroom, Test-Series, Mentorship) targeted for 2021 and
  • Sociology Optional Test Series (with Mentorship) Program for Mains 2020.
