Itís not possible to select ind history and Isl history simultaneously. Nor is it possible to select together P.Ad and Town planning. The official rules for subject selection do not allow it. Kindly revisit the rules and select again.

No issues as far as subject selection rules are concerned. You may want to share your background and your rationale for choosing the subjects you have selected.

I did BS Geology, but I am not gonna chose that, because syllabus is too big. I am thinking about physics because i believe my base is strong in this particular subject, but I am confused now after listening different persons. Regarding Muslim Law, I guess I could cover some part by preparing Islamic studies. Rest of the subjects are new and I don't have any idea about those subjects.

Kindly guide me
Thanks

Buddy, try to avoid physics. MS in physics people are often left depressed after sitting the 'ruthless' physics exam. You have to have broad+in-depth+detailed knowledge on the syllabus in physics.

Therefore, IR is clearly a better choice - Your current Affairs study will guide you in this subject matter. It is interesting, rewarding and can catch you some good marks. (Paired well with Intl Law)

Over that, go for Public Administration. Takes less time to cover, straightforward syllabus, lots of material available + will help you understand the civil system & bureaucracy.

Good Luck.

Syllabus is not going to be less for any other subject. Geology at least gives you some background.

What I know about physics is that it’s a pretty demanding subject in CSS. It is rarely advised. It may be worthwhile to consider Pol Sci in place of IR/Physics.

Muslim law often gets ‘targeted’. Overlap between Islamic studies and Muslim law may be less than what you imagine.

Anyways, I think you have just started your journey and it takes a few days, weeks or even months to finalise the subjects.

P.S: have a look at the syllabus of your regional language. These are often scoring subjects.
