    fuck off who said anthro is having huge syllabus

    • xmnotes says:

      anthro & sociology almost the same syllabus but little bit difference in anthro…once go through the syllabus & not only go throughing the syllabus , but also when u start reading only u’ll come to know how is that subject……
      ok its ur wish if u feel it is easy then it is easy & very less syllabus……otherwise lengthy…..

      my friend who selected anthro she is struggling to read that subject now…

      i dint say that anthro syllabus is huge syllabus…were did u find it…i dint mention anywhere in my blog….

      see according to different aspirants different opinions will be there……
