This is a much needed reality check. We should get down to revision because we need to do it either way.

While I was preparing, everyone said that this time Precis and Islamiat will get hit as Essay and Precis got hit alternatively. Whereas, IR got hit several times and Political Science was being a scoring one, so this time FPSC will be lenient on IR but will hit Political Science, similarly, Gender studies also might get hit.
Allah knows the best.

My opinion is based on the following observations.
Essay is not a target-paper, but failure is based on the following reasons.
1. Grammatical mistakes + failure to fulfill essay requirements
2. Failure to understand essay topics. For instance, In global power dynamics, most candidates might have taken it as US vs China. IMF discussed under Pakistan's perspective and the inclusion of both blessings and disaster related points. In Polarized Politics, failure to link Polarized politics with challenges and issues that it causes for democracy. Informal economy and women universities were ambiguous.
Kashmir and digitalization will fetch passing marks if relevant knowledge and essay requirements are fulfilled. Tourism is like tossing a coin.
For Islamiyat.
First, it was out of blue paper. 2nd, it is now the sole discretion of paper-checkers to award whether passing marks or not for a paper that is based more on Arguments than proving from the Sunnah and Quran. Also, at least 8 to 10 correct mcqs can favor a candidate.
Political Science 2: questions were mostly from IR and almost everyone was not mentally prepared.
IR1, PS1, Precis will be high scoring.
IR2: low scoring due to failure to use IR specific terminologies and application of theories.
Gender studies: again becomes the sole discretion of paper-checkers to award marks at will. However, it can be taken as a target-paper as well as low scoring subject.

These are my observations and certainly based on my own understanding. I may be wrong in my observations, but it is also not a wise decision to wait for the result by wasting one's own precious time. Always prepare oneself for the worst, especially when it is about CSS.

The reason why people fail IR has very little to do with the examiner. It's an intricate subject that requires analytical reasoning and comprehension. Rote learning and memorizing past papers is not how you go about it.

Criminology, sociology and gender studies are easier subjects and because so many have passed them over the years, more and more people tend to select them. I think that's why some examiners have become stringent with their marking on these subjects - to keep candidates from relying so heavily on just these and to give other subjects a chance.

I've noticed that people who don't rely on these "trends" and choose subjects they have prior knowledge of and have studied in schools, tend to pass more than those that rely on the "high scoring subjects trend". There is no consistency or trend; people fail sociology, gender, criminology etc just as much as any other subject.
