In this dynamic and evolving world, filled with astounding scientific discoveries and inventions on one hand and crumbling ethics, decaying morals and impaired democratic values on the other, teaching and learning of social science is inevitable at secondary level education. It develops the sense of responsibility, positive attitude, moral, social and democratic values in adolescents who are future of mankind in the world. To estimate the successful fulfilment of the objectives of teaching social science, investigating of the trends in the achievement of the students in the subject is much needed.
