Success ratio of major optionals n comparison with last yr–

In sequence–total nu.of candidates in mains,total nu. of candidates in interview,success ratio at interview stage

In 2010 the top 5 optionals were:
PUBLIC ADMIN.———- 4844 1108=22.8%

GEOGRAPHY————– 3903  912 =23.3%
HISTORY ————— 3554  548 =15.4%
PHILOSOPHY ————-1946  304 =15.6%
SOCIOLOGY ————–1869  435 =23.2%
2011 Performance–
PUBLIC ADMIN.———–6550  1181 =18.03%
GEOGRAPHY—————4270 851 =19.9%
SOCIOLOGY————–2252 292 = 12.96%
HISTORY—————- 1875  420 = 22.4%
PSYCHOLOGY————- 1419 316 =22.26%

 

In short–SOCIO n LAW disastrous.Psycho did wonder.Seems psycho n socio exchanged their last yr’s fortunes(may be scaling/moderation’s result).

History has improved a lot compared to last year.

Remember history n philosophy Hindi medium crowd was not there this time.

Pubad n Geog has declined compared to last year BUT one should remember that its only in percentage terms,in absolute terms it is still more or less same.

Most of the “NEW” candidates opted for pubad,geog n socio n pub ad n socio’s percentage decline is because of the performance of this NEW section,otherwise they have performed SAME.

Toppers will be from these–

LIT.OF HINDI LANG. 122

LIT.OF PALI LANG. 114   (PALI defied all predictions)

LIT.OF MALAYALAM LANG 45

LIT.OF KANNAD. LANG. 44

It appears to me that UPSC has actually avoided major shocks in MAJOR subjects like what happened to psycho n history last yr,both had 15% success ratio,now both has 22% ratio.Also 18-19 % is the ratio of top3-pubad,geog n socio.In absolute terms all 3 are above last yr’s level n these 3 were d main choice of new crowd resulting from CSAT,so slight reduction in %terms is because of that  NEW section.It seems that at this stage of process,UPSC has equalized the MAJOR optionals in a better way than last yr.
