Red face Tips and Tricks for c.s.s exams 2011.

Important: Tips And Tricks For C.S.S And P.M.S Exams 2010 and 2011.
1. For preparation study 8-10 hours a day and do sleep 7 hours everyday in order to maintain yourself physically healthy.

2. Writing practice is very important and in C.S.S exams, there are no lines in the answer sheet and the pages are plain white, so you must do writing practice on white plain sheet in order to manage balance on your lines in your answer sheet.

3. quantity has no importance but qualities is the basic key to success in giving answer to the question in the exams because in C.S.S. and P.M.S exams questions are of analytical type and answer are needed in the form of arguments, comments and conclusions in your own words.

4. in every paper there are 30 marks of m.c.qs. so prepare well mcqs because 35 are passing marks in every paper and the marks you earn from mcqs play vital role in it.

5. Everyday science paper is very easy.50 marks of m.c.qs and 50 marks of short questions. Every day science paper includes( biology, physics, chemistry, environmental science, I.T and general science ) .physics, biology and chemistry is off f.s.c standard.
6. Islamiyat can be given both in urdu and English. But islamiyat paper is based on analytical study and general knowledge about islam. So prepare all the topics which are related to islam and Islamic world in past, present and future and problems of islamic world.

7. For current affair paper there is no need of buy any books. All the topics can be covered through internet and news papers.
8. Only blue, Black, Pencil is allowed in examination hall and strict instruction are given in the 1st page of answer sheet about using of color pens.

9. Mobiles are not allowed in examination hall and even if you bring it, your mobile is taken and kept locked in a cupboard.

10. Original I.D card and original roll number slip are checked form time to time during exams, so its better to bring them in every paper.

11. Both mcqs sheet and answer sheet is given at the same time, so its better to do m.c.qs quick in order to save time for the last question, which you will attempt in the end of paper.

12. In English essay paper always make rough outline on page 25 of your answer sheet and when you are done then make fair copy of it on 1st page of answer sheet.

13. Page number 24 and 25 in your answer sheet can be used for rough work; instruction about rough work is clearly given on 1st page of answer sheet. After doing rough work on 24 and 25 page, cross them with black pen.

14. Date sheet is very tough, no holidays between papers, continuous paper on everyday basis, two papers a day (9-12a.m and 2-5p.m), 6 hours of paper giving everyday. All 12 papers are taken in just 7-8 days. Do bring sweets with you in order to maintain your sugar level during paper; specially the second paper (2-5p.m) needs lots of sweets because sugar level is down in the evening time. And your brain and fingers wont work properly due to shortage of sugar level in your body.

15. During preparation make outlines of important headings and points of every topic, because these outline will help you a lot in revision during short time period which you get between papers due to tough date sheet.

16. If you have plans for joining academy then dont waste your time and money on sub-standard academies, just go for the best in the business. According to my opinion the best academies are 1st officers academy Lahore, 2nd k.i.ps academy and 3rd toppers academy.

17. General knowledge papers (everyday science, pak-affairs and current affairs) are based on collective marks system. You need 120 marks in total to pass these three papers collectively.(e.g you got 20 marks in everyday science, 50 marks in pak-affairs and 50 marks in current affairs, so in total its 120 marks, so you have passed collectively all he general knowledge section on exams, your everyday science paper is considered passed on the basis of collective marks system)

(Wish you best of luck for p.m.s 2010 and c.s.s 2011 exams) @ cngfitted.

here is the simplified scheme to solve any paper ( islamiat is also inluded).
1. you have only first ten minutes to select the questions with rough idea.
2. when u have selected the question (except compalsory) find out those four questions which can be best answered by you.
3. remember that you dont have to beat about the bust, read the sequence of the things asked in question and answer all the key words one by one.
4. remove all cuttings that give bad impressions.


ESSAY PAPER:
essay is not a big deal provided u know that what is the essence of essay.
essay is nothing but a set patteren of writing . u have to follow the rules that are essential for any essay in any form of language.
following are the steps to prepare and pass the paper of essay.

1. WHAT MATERIAL TO BE STUDIED FOR ESSAY???
essay requires a comprehensive knowledge of the topic to be disscused. if you are writing on global warming or renewable energy you must have the accurate statistics for the topic. simillarly if you are writing on terrorism or mis-perception about islam than you must know different refrences and saying of prominent leaders.
therefore i recommend extensive reading of dawn, find out articles from www.encarta.com on various issues like global warming, renewable energy, humanism, civil liberties, terorism etc. (it helped me to obtain 54 in essay)

2.HOW TO WRITE???
it first needs the selection of topic. always chose an easy topic for what u have done homework. than use thesis statement style of writing easy.
pay attention on introduction and conclusion.
<<REMEBER TO USE EASY WORDS AND MAKE SHORT SENTECES. DONT MAKE ANY GRAMMATICAL OR SPELLING MISTAKE>>



ENGLISH:
well i think it is the toughest paper to solve. you need to do alot of homework to pass this paper. but its not impossible.
solving the paper of english require one to have full command over precise making, expansion of idea, vocabulary, grammar.etc.

2. in article find out different grammatical rules and learn that how the writer is using grammar. try to do it urself as well.
3. go through mastering the world of english, exploring the world of english.

at the end of month categorize the articles in accordance to the subject and bring out the best one from every category and discard all other. you can keep 2 articles for each category if required.
