1:I was a regular member of Quaid-e-Azam public library .They have a nice collection of many books especially on Moghul History and on Urdu(especially Iqbaliat).Almost every year there is question on Iqbal and you can prepare your notes from there.
2:For current affairs,try to read columns on newyork times,washington post,Guardian online.They give you a wide perspective to attempt your paper
3:For English try to get a good quotation book and remember some quotes or verses of good poets like Tennyson,Shakespeare or Longfellow.They'll help u in paragraph writing.
4:My parents told me this:Offer ur prayers daily and recite Surah Yasin.Darood Sharif and Surah Nasr.
Next time I'll post my tips on my first optional subject Indo Pak history
Take care Allah Hafiz

Lightbulb mid day energy slump(an article)

Energy Enhancers: Beating The Midday Slump:
If you’re anything like the rest of us, you’re body begins to “shut down” before you’re office or work establishment does. Even if you’re a stay-at-home parent, you can feel yourself dosing off, just about as your kids are winding up or getting home from school. It’s known as midday slump and it often leaves no doubt why the Europeans made Siesta-time part of their daily workday routine. But, as North Americans, enjoying most other life luxuries, afternoon downtime is not one of them.

According to experts, the reason most of us feel sleepy in the afternoon is because of our body’s circadian rhythm, or our natural clock, which tends to slow during midday. And, they note, that the feelings of tiredness and lethargy are only enhanced due to lack of sleep from the night before, or a lunch that was high in fat and/or calories.

However, you don’t have to let your biological slowdown, slow down your progress or productivity. Instead you take steps to perk up your attitude and your energy.

1. Work Perks: Give yourself a java jolt. According to experts it’s a safe, effective way to wake yourself up, especially if you’re not dependent on it to function. They note, that those who have several cups of this caffeinated stimulant per day can become immune to its effects and benefits and they suggest limiting your (afternoon) intake to one, eight-ounce cup of coffee.

2. Spice Up Your Afternoon With Variety: Routine tasks can lead to boredom, which can ultimately lead to increased drowsiness. Experts suggest varying your daily routine when you notice that you are becoming fatigued and “unproductive”. If it’s impossible to change tasks you may want to consider taking a five-minute break to divert your attention from the routine.

3. Refuel: It’s probably been about three to four hours since you last ate something and your resources are probably running low. Experts suggest a light snack combining carbohydrates, protein and a little fat (the good kind found in low-fat yogurt or hummus), which can help re-energize you by boosting your blood sugar. They stress however, from giving in to the temptation of sugar-packed snacks like candy bars. Professionals point out that the immediate “lift” will eventually be counteracted with an even quicker crash, leaving you more tired and weary than before.

4. Get Movin’: Exercise is key to keeping healthy, fit, and energized. But, if you don’t have time to hit the gym during or after lunch consider a short walk around the block, parking lot, neighborhood or building during lunch or when you feel that midday lull. Activity, say experts, not only wakes up your mind and body, it also burns off calories.

5. Hit The Pause Button: If possible but the work aside and close your eyes for a few minutes. Better yet, if you’ve got a very understanding employer or are a stay-at-home parent, try to take a midday nap, even for just 20 minutes. Less than 20 minutes may not be enough and more than a half an hour may be too much, placing you into a phase of deep sleep that will cause you to feel tired and irritable when you wake up…so, don’t forget to set your alarm

Hello Noor!

Thanks for your valuable tips. I want to ask you some more questions:

1. You talked about writing critical analysis in history papers. I want to clarify if this is for both papers of history.
2. How many marks you scored in paper I of history?
3. What do you think is the ultimate and final reason for scoring over 70% marks in history?
4. Do you mean 'graphs' when you said you made 'flow charts' in journalism paper?

Desperately waiting to see your replies. Thanks!

Default @ sonia

first you will have to study each subject one by one in order to get an idea of each subject...after tht it depends on your setup whether u like to do side by side byu preparing a time table or u can do it one by one...
