I was a candidate for CSS 2008. I had indo-pak history as one of my optional subjects. Albeit I have studied a good number of books and used good quotations in that paper yet I secured only 82 marks in indo-pak history...........kindly tell me the tips to secure maximum in indo-pak history....

How to gain more marks?...share some tips. i failed in aggregation otherwise would have passed exam...

Pleased to learn that maps must be drawn and critical analysis must be written at the end of the question.But a few questions that arise in my mind need answers on ur part.Questions are as follows:

1. should we write "critical analysis" at the end of every question?

2. some time questions do not allow to make critical analysis yet should we make this or should depend on the questions?

3. should writinf critical analysis be confined to one subject i.e indo pak history or should apply this rules to all papers?
can we also use blue high lighter?

plz anwers questions......

Ans 1- Critical analysis (CA) are a very essential part of every answer. However, in answering all the questions in a paper, not necessarily should you write critical analysis at the end of every anwer. you may give the heading such as: My Opinion, CA, Crux of the Matter, Analysis, and finally Conclusion.
Ans.2- You must bear in mind that the conclusion and CA varies from question to question. Hence, dont apply a general rule of writing CA for every answer. Think about the answer and go acordingly. Needless to say that Conclusion is the essential aprt of every answer.

Ans.3- As I wrote, it depends on the question rather than on the subject and paper. CA is not confined to a single subject. This may fetch you marks as it shows your analytical approach to the resolution of the issue asked in the question. But there may not always be ananswer in shape of a CA.
I hope this will help and I have to some extent answered your queries.

Whenever I see Dr. Noor-ul-ain's name as CSS topper 2008, it inspires me a great deal. I have already taken a lot of help from your previous posts, but still some querries are in my mind.

1.Did you prepared your essasy in advance? or it was just spontaneous attemp?

2. Paper 2 of Indo-pak History and Pakistan Affairs paper are almost overlapping. Was your approach of answering was different for these papers?

3. Which quotation book do you recommend for English paper and Essay paper?

4. Do you think choosing few topics for essay paper and collecting data for them is a risky practice?

Looking Forward for your help!!!!

Sister Noor! Whenever you have time, Please check my precis. I have recently started preparation and it is my first attempt.


Precis & Composition Paper 2007

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

FEDERAL PUBLIC SERVICE COMISSION
COMPETATIVE EXAMINATION FOR RECRUMENT TO POSTS
IN BPS – 17, UNDER THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, 2007

ENGLISH (PRECIS AND ACOMPOSITION)
TIME ALLOWED: THREE HOURS MAXIMUM MARKS :100

Q#1 Make a précis of the given passage and suggest a suitable heading.

The author of a work of imagination is trying to effect us wholly, as human beings, whether he knows it or not; and we are affected by it, as human beings, whether we intend to be or not. I suppose that everything we eat has some effect upon us than merely the pleasure of taste and mastication; it affects us during the process of assimilation and digestion; and I believe that exactly the same is true of any thing we read.
The fact that what we read does not concern merely something called our literary taste, but that it affects directly, though only amongst many other influences , the whole of what we are, is best elicited , I think, by a conscientious examination of the history of our individual literary education. Consider the adolescent reading of any person with some literary sensibility. Everyone, I believe, who is at all sensible to the seductions of poetry, can remember some moment in youth when he or she was completely carried away by the work of one poet. Very likely he was carried away by several poets, one after the other. The reason for this passing infatuation is not merely that our sensibility to poetry is keener in adolescence than in maturity. What happens is a kind of inundation, or invasion of the undeveloped personality, the empty (swept and garnished) room, by the stronger personality of the poet. The same thing may happen at a later age to persons who have not done much reading. One author takes complete possession of us for a time; then another, and finally they begin to affect each other in our mind. We weigh one against another; we see that each has qualities absent from others, and qualities incompatible with the qualities of others: we begin to be, in fact, critical: and it is our growing critical power which protects us from excessive possession by anyone literary personality. The good critic- and we should all try to critics, and not leave criticism to the fellows who write reviews in the papers- is the man who, to a keen and abiding sensibility, joins wide and increasingly discriminating. Wide reading is not valuable as a kind of hoarding, and the accumulation of knowledge or what sometimes is meant by the term ‘a well-stocked mind.’ It is valuable because in the process of being affected by one powerful personality after another, we cease to be dominated by anyone, or by any small number. The very different views of life, cohabiting in our minds, affect each other, and our own personality asserts itself and gives each a place in some arrangement peculiar to our self.

Title: Reading: the personality explorer

Precis
Being human beings, we are affected by imaginory work. Reading keeps on affecting us after its first effect. Reading choice, a determinant of literary tase, is among the factors that determine personality. Individual's infatuation towards a poet, in adolescence, does not show a tilt towards poetry, rather it is due to stronger personality's influence and can happen in latter ages due to less reading. Infatuated from more than one authors, we start their ranking in mind based on their qualities; this is the start of critical power in us. Good critic indulges in broad and distinguished reading: beneficial for knowledge accumulation and ceasing dominantion of few on us. Our personality is constituted, subject to our preferences, by different inter-related ideas in our mind.

Passage: more than 350
precis: 116

Please give me marks out of 25..

Looking Forward....

Default The quest for satisfying answers still persists.

There is no denying the fact that qualitative written expression is valued.However, if quality and quantity both go hand in hand then? irfee failed to get my question.
Generally the lenthy answers are much more valued. even once sister NOOR said in her previous post that the average length of her questions was 5-7 pages, if i am not wrong.

if the quality and quantity are present , the web of spider would definatley work..

Default EDS in 5 DAYS

Dear fellows,

I am confused , I completed EDS Course in 5 Days only from KASHMIRI Book and written my own Notes from it.

Am i over confident that i covered EDS in 5 days or it is possible ? Kindly reply

Kindly Advise me should i study more EDS or Should i start now other Subjects??

bunko,

if you've memorized all the necessary stuff in EDS, i think you should move on to any other subject. but keep on revising EDS randomly. EDS is very scoring.
