Default Need help about selection of Optional Subjects for CSS 2016

I still have not decided about my optional subjects. But I like to get an advice from experts on this forum about my subject selection. I am of the idea to select subjects in such a manner so that their study is interconnected, meaning to say that the study of one subject helps in covering the syllabus of another subject too. Not only this, but the subjects I want to opt are easy and more social in nature connected to our daily life and awareness. So their study seems interesting.

The subjects I am thinking to opt are;
  • International Relations - 200 Marks
  • International Law - 100 Marks
  • Indo-Pak History - 100 Marks
  • Environmental Science - 100 Marks
  • Geography

I feel that not only are these Optional Subjects inter-related in terms of their Syllabus, rather they also aid in covering some portion of the Compulsory Subjects Syllabus. For example the study of IR and I.Law could be much helpful in attempting both these papers as well as English Essay and Current Affairs Paper. Similarly the study of Indo-Pak History could be helpful in covering much of the syllabus for Pak Affairs. Whereas Environmental Science and Geography also seem inter-connected, while at the same time they could be helpful in compulsory papers such as General Science and Ability.

So what would experts advise me here about subject selection for CSS 2016? I need a quick response please.

your subject selection is nice but i have reservation about the selection of Indo pak history and geography ,previously these subjects were 200 marks now 100 marks only but syllabus is same so i think these are lengthy subjects it will take more time for preparation.

Navid, I think exactly like you and I think this is a very good approach. By the way, Indo-Pak History won't help much because history part in Pakistan Affairs has been removed so why don't you go for Town Planning & Urban Management? I'm constantly hearing that it's a short and interesting course.
