Scheme of Admission test Prior to 2016:

The entrance examination for the M.A. course in Sociology was designed to elicit the candidates' general awareness and understanding of the social world. To this end the examination questions were largely qualitative and open-ended requiring candidates to use their analytical and interpretative skills to write essay type answers that are logical and coherent. The pattern of the question paper changed from year to year.
