Default Advise Required for Gender Studies as an Optional Subject.

Dear Members,

Is Gender Studies a scoring subject?
Is it short in syllabus?

I feel easy opting for the subject but I do want to go for it if it is not the scoring one.

Please advise me.
Looking forward to your feedback

Regards,

This was the first time this subject was an option in CSS. CE-2016's (latest CE) results aren't out yet. Henceforth we have no idea if it is a scoring subject or not.

The syllabus can be very short, if you stick to topics - however the subject is very vast if you want to dig into it. Just like any other social science subject, you can connect it to many other disciplines such as psychology, sociology, anthropology, etc.

My suggestion is, if you have time, and an interest in Women studies, go for it. The paper was more or less about women's issues. 'Gender studies' seemed like a miscalculated subject-heading.

Or... you can wait for this year's result to come out; however, it will most likely be out AFTER the registration period for CE-2017.

To be honest with you, I have no idea about Indo-Pak, US History, Public Admin, Journalism or Economics, keeping in view the new syllabus i.e.

As for Business Administration, the syllabus is indeed very short and if you're good with memorizing 'steps' of methods, procedures, ideas, etc, then you should be fine. It is generally considered a scoring subject if you're familiar with the subject.

Sociology is the same as any other social science. You can either cover the basics (headings/topics in the CSS syllabus), or spend a lot of time connecting each topic with real life examples, etc. It can be a very lengthy subject then. However, sociology is considered a 'risky' subject - while the questions seems easy at times, marking is not consistent and people end up scoring poorly in sociology (at least last 3-4 years).

US History and Public Admin were considered scoring subjects with a very short syllabus, but my knowledge about them since the syllabus change for CE-2016 is limited and therefore I cannot comment correctly.
