Unhappy I'm new here and I'm looking for help regarding the myth of high and low scoring subj

I'm depressed & overwrought with the selection of optional subjects.
My friends say that computer science, English literature and agriculture are NOT HIGH SCORING SUBJECTS in CSS and PMS.
Is it true🤔🤔?
---------------'- '' '
Here is my optional subject list:
1) Psychology (READ as a subject in 5th semester): 100
2) Philosophy(interest): 100
3) Town Planning & Urban Management(interest): 100
4) Computer Science( having BSCS from FAST): 200
5) English Literature(have studied famous novels) :100
Agriculture & Forestry (have read Agriculture as a subject in 3rd semsester, bur FORESTY is new to me):100
Gender Studies/Women's study (interest, & have read few books, related to gender and women's studies, in last summer)

Scoring doesn't matter if you have no background in the subject, have poor preparation and generally dislike the subject. You'll never get a good score if you don't have an affinity with the subject.

Pick a subject based on:
(1) Your personal preference and background
(2) Overlapping of the syllabus with other subjects
(3) How short or extensive the syllabus is
(4) Past papers and the type of questions asked
(5) The amount of time you can give to a subject for preparation

As someone who has picked English Literature as optional and has an M.Phil in the subject, you don't just have to have read many novels, you need the ability to critically analyze a text, to argue and to present your arguments in a rational and understandable manner. Literature is not about producing a text's summary, but analyzing and producing critique.

I suggest you look at past papers and determine if you would be able to understand and solve questions. Also look at the length of syllabus and determine if you could cover it.

I have shared computer science papers of this year. Check the syllabus if you have covered all the topics. I had covered all of them in my studies. Do opt cs , other optional are quite lengthy, but you have 1 year to prepare so its your choice. Regarding marking trend, I have no experience.
