You can begin with English as it will also be helpful for your bachelors. Read Dawn newspaper daily especially its editorials. Try to practics writing precis and expansion on daily basis. High school English Grammer by Wren and Martin will be quite useful.

No .You would have to give all papers constituting 1200 marks according to daytsheet made by Fpsc.All papers will end in a time span of like 2 weeks . Css examination is being conducted just once every year . Even if you donot appear in any single paper then you will be considered fail . Read rules and regulations given at the top right side of this page.
