Default Subject Selection & Some Tips-ASP Kamran Adil & CSP Muti ur Rehman

Confused about taking or not of CSS exams

To begin with I would like to state that the very initial thing you have to do is to prepare yourself for CSS mentally, which implies that you should have no second opinions about taking or otherwise regarding exams. Secondly, bare in mind that CSS examination is predominantly a test based on your writing skills and if you are
feeble in this; there is likelihood that you would suffer in terms of scoring marks. The third important point which cannot be ignored is that knowledge per se would not help you: I mean to say organizing knowledge and then presenting it in a befitting manner is the key of the exam.

1. Right choice of subjects ( I recommend one should have subjects according to his aptitude instead of marks-scoring approach---as one will score good in what he has command).
2. Excellent command on English language is a pre-requisite. If a person's English is not up to the mark, even ten years of preparation will not help him.

3. Originality is a thing, which is very rare in our friends; they try to read guide material and then aspire for positions. It is totally illogical, as without putting in quality one should not expect quality.

4. Competitive mind is also an important element in ensuring success. Same was the formula of Aitzaz Ahsan. You know many students who are otherwise very good just don't prepare themselves mentally and get disturbed by little things. This approach will not help. Be strong and have conviction in your self and belief in Allah (SWT).

Default Tricks

ASA
In the following lines, I would try to give you whatever little knowledge and experience I've gathered during my prep. Hope it helps. In return of it, all you have to do is to pray for me.

1) English Essay: The Trick: Read unstoppably and untiringly. Newspapers, Magazines, Journals and your course books. When you get fed up of reading, pick up the pen and start writing. Write till your hands can write no more. Then start reading whatever you have written, correct mistakes and try to avoid them in the next attempt.
2) English Paper 2: The Trick: There is no trick for it. It covers the knowledge of the language since 'you were in grade 5' uptil the day of exam. Get the reknowned books, analyze your weak points and rectify them one by one. Work on this paper even when you are preparing your optional subjects (after all, you are preparing everything in English, aren't you ??)
3)Pakistan Affairs: The Trick: Tame your fear of this subject in your 'pehli fursat'. Develope interest in it as a true Pakistani. Make notes of dates, events and people. Work your way starting from ancient history uptil today.
4)Islamiat: The Trick: It's a very high scoring subject provided you attack your prep from the correct angle. In my humble opinion, you should attempt it in Urdu. Read Tafseer by Ulama apart from the prescribed books. Memorize Quranic verses and Urdu Ashaar for references.
5)Everyday Science: The Trick: Keep your eyes and ears open while you move about in your surroundings. Ask questions from yourself and find answers. Like" How the hell does this TV work ??, How can I listen to my friend on my cell phone while moving in my car ?? What the heck does make me breathe or walk or talk ??". Be curious. Read Encycolpedia. Read the prescribed books throroughly.
6) World Affairs: The Best Trick: READ LOT'S N' LOTS N' LOTS OF DAWN. Watch atleast three global news channels like CNN, BBC etc.

Default But Lets Be 'witty' Too

Salam

1 when ever you read a book, magazine, newspaper or whatever do make notes of what ever you feel is imprtant. this helps you memorise the main points, for later elaboration.
2 Get your writing materials checked by an able professional of the subject
3 Refer to the past papers while making your preparations.
4 Expect 'mind boggling' method of asking the simple questions.
5 Be clear in answering. dont mess up the ideas.
