Every coaching institute is known for its teachers and faculty. Sapiens IAS is no different. In fact, our leader and mentor Mr. Pradip Sarkar is widely known for his industry experience and command over the subject he teaches. It won’t be wrong to say that Mr. Sarkar has redefined anthropology coaching with his innovative thinking and teaching process.
Selecting an optional subject for the UPSC civil services can be difficult. There are many subjects to choose from. However, if you are interested in social sciences, you may consider anthropology as your optional. Anthropology is different from most other subjects that you have grown up studying. That is why our “UPSC anthropology coaching classes” are designed to give you an in-depth idea of what it is all about. Here are a few more reasons for choosing anthropology as your optional.
The optional subject covers 500 marks, and how well you do can determine your future. The good thing is that anthropology is a scoring subject. With our guided IAS anthropology coaching, you are sure to ace the exam.
Students from any background can choose anthropology. Students from all backgrounds such as arts, science and commerce can opt for this optional. MCA, MBA, engineers and doctors can also choose anthropology optional.
Anthropology is a vast subject, and the syllabus may seem too extensive. However, at Sapiens IAS, we have devised the “best strategy for completing the entire syllabus in just 3 months”. We provide our anthropology optional classes for UPSC 5 days per week.
If you study the question papers of previous years, you would notice that the format and style of the questions are to the point and straightforward. You can prepare notes and study the answers to popular questions. You can memorize and revise these answers for the exam as well.
Our UPSC anthropology optional coaching will show you that anthropology is the study of social concepts that we are already familiar with. Examples include religion, politics, economy, family and kinship, marriage and so on. This familiarity makes anthropology interesting and easy to learn.
At Sapiens IAS, you will find a helpful community of teachers and other students. We have plenty of useful resources to share with the students. From books to suggestions and notes, you will get all types of guidance from us.
