Default Why did i score low in Psychology?

I appeared in CE-15 and Psychology was one of the subjects which i prepared the best and even my exam went awesome i was so sure that i would score around 70 in paper I and II individually. I even made pretty nice diagrams, charts, headings etc. I prepared from foreign writers' books and this subject was on my finger tips but i am shocked to look at my marks which are:-
Paper A: 47 and Paper B :49.

Would anyone care to shed some light what went wrong here ?
What would you guys suggest me ?
Should i drop this subject and opt Geography ?
I am confused because i still think i am better at psychology than geography even though i scored 138 in geography and the papers were not as good as psychology.

You cannot predict the result of this exam on the basis of the effort you put in. So I will suggest you to stick with psychology. You never know if geography or for that matter some other subject would be slaughtered in the next exam. Besides, your unexpected result in psychology could also be simply the outcome of poor mood of the examiner.

i guess psychology was in low scoring trend this time, but personally i felt that psychology II paper was tough as they had asked about the history and other topics which were not WELL-prepared by me... that paper really made me feel down in all my CE15 papers, and now after qualifying CE15 written I am very unhappy about psycho II as it will be affecting my aggregate.

Yes i guess psychology is one of the badly hit subjects of this year and you are right about paper II it was very unconventional but still was doable. I believe psychology was opted by way too many candidates and majority of them if not everyone were very well prepared this time around which is why examiner's expectations went high after every paper he/she checked. Anyways all the best for next phase and hope you get your desired group.

Paper 2 was a disaster. I thought I would fail in Psychology but it happened to be Essay.
