Wa Salaam

If you have good knowledge of World/Current affairs then opt International Relations other wise consider any regional language or International law instead of IR. And Indo Pak history is not a good option, its syllabus is lengthy and its not a scoring subject, consider Psychology instead of Indo-Pak history.
Do not worry, sociology and journalism, both are easy and can be prepared without any background knowledge.

Current Affairs;

Ur marks r good in this paper. So u dont worry about it. Only study Dawn. Also study Previous papers from 1971 to pick an idwea how to attempt question from CSS Guide by Doger Unique.

Method of Attempt is same as in Pak Affairs.

Study objective book of Imtiaz Shahid on current affairs. Cram lanuages, currency,capitals of counteries which is given at the end of a DIARY.

When u see aquestion, u will observr that it is possible to make any diagram, graphics. e.g;

If question is about pak and afghan relations, In this situation, u will make the graphics of pak and afghanistan.

If question is about middle east, form ghraphics of countries of middle east.

If question is about CARS, form graphics of these counties.

Potential of central Asian states? in this q u write statics in this way,

Oil; 20 billon barrel initajikistan
gas ; u can write any aprox. amount

coal; 79 tonns

It is not essential u will write accurate statics. U write only aprox. statics

Take another example i attempted essay on pak war on terror and its impact on our psyche , socio-economic , polictcal front.
in this essay i wrote figures

social front.

poverty increasd by 30%. This 30% is statistics

Crime increased by 20 %
Economic front

35 bn doller fly to abroad as aresult of terrorism

mention aprox. population of country in respective question
__________________

1.Make diagram, graphics whereevere it is possible.



2. Write statistics where it is possible



3. Use headings and sub- headings



4. Use pen instead of ballpoint in paper.



5.Writing of headings and sub-headings should b different from main stuff.



6. Give some space between Heading and start of paragraph.



7. u should cram objectives of all papers. Take objective question very seriously. Only objective question will raise ur score from 40 to 50 marks. It is essential to gain at least 16 marks out of 20 marks.



In EDS, u should score 40 out of 50 marks in objective question.



8. Now u follow this technique:



9. U should give proper time to each question in paper. Divide the time according to each question. Let say there r 4 subjective questions and one objective.



U divide the time in this way;

Total time 180 mints



Time to select questions which u solve 10 mints

Time to revise paper at the end 5 mints



Time for objective 30 mints



Time for each subjective question 33 mints





So time for one subjective question is 33 mints. U futher divide this time in this way, 28 + 5



U make a short outline just like essay paper at the end of answer sheet for each question. 5 mints time u will give to make this short outline. By doing this ur hand and nerves will take a short rest during making short outline.



U have only 28 mints to write. During this time u can only write planned material.



Write relevant material. B careful in this regard. IF u took 17 marks in one question, 10 in 2nd, 8 in 3rd and 6 marks in 4th question. In final u got 41 marks. It is not a good approach.



U follow this technique,

U took 15 marks in first one, 13 in 2nd, 11 in 3rd and 10 in 4th one, u got 49 marks. So dont give time of one question to other.

@hani.idgaf

Dear GRAPHICS mean MAPS.

If question is asked about relations between PAK and INDIA u will wil form maps of pak and India..

If question asked about infiltration of terrorists from Afghanistan and india helps those elements in Balochistan.

U can show cities of afghanistan along border in the map, also mention indian map in answer.

Let say a question was asked in Current Affairs in 2009;

Economic Potential of Central Asian States.

In this question after introduction, u should make map of CARs.

Then start to write ur stuff.

If question asked about ASEAN and SAARC, make maps of respective region.

Diagrams:

It means like in EDS if digestive system of man asked, make its diagram at the start of answer after introduction.

If Global Warming or Green House Effect is asked, also make its diagram,
show sky, rays of sun falling on earth, then reflecting rays from earth.

In botany, zoology papers and like that in other papers, always make diagrams.

Graphics in Islamiat:

in Islamiat, paper is mostly about current affairs,
if question is asked about terrorism in kashmir, Palistine, make graphics of Kashmir and palistine.

if question is relating to Middle East, make the respective graphics.

Always those people win the game who have the habit of inquisitive.

Ur further quaries r welcum.

Best of Luck
