Default Successful Candidates Having Opted Economics Please Report Here

All candidates having opted Economics and successfully passing the Competitive Examinations kindly report here. This also goes out to those who have been unfortunate regarding passing the exam but having done well on Economics. In addition, please include your marks.

The purpose is to share the approach/structure adopted at attempting Long Questions and sources of study -- for both papers. It will be a great deal of help to those appearing in the future. All those having substantial knowledge and the relevant academic background are also welcome to engage in this would-be-constructive thread.

Awe-inspiring marks Sabahat. And thanks for your participation. The tips from the qualifiers of a subject help hundreds of fresh aspirants.

I ve not studied economics but my options are open for Psychology, Geography or Economics. So lets see.

Sabahat - How do you interpret the CSS syllabus of economics? Is it lengthy ?

And thanks for initiating this thread.

Very Impressive. Just the kind of approach this thread needs. Because those opting for economics, albeit few, won't settle for anything less than that benchmark .

It is a pleasure having you here. It would be useful to begin mentioning your experience and then we'll take your approach to Long Questions from 2012 to get a fair idea of how to go about answering them. Also point out, if you feel, certain weaknesses that you may have had in 2012 (as well as 2013) that may have cost you those '50' (67) marks. Because every mark matters.

We won't go into comprehensive details since that is not the purpose of this thread; Sabahat may be facing scarcity of time dealing with them. It is assumed that members taking part in this thread will at least have attained basic knowledge of Economics Paper 1 or those with Economics background. For those with no background of economics and wanting to opt it, we - the members, will make another thread and offer guidance comprehensively which we acquire from this senior. This systematic way would lead to efficient and better communication of skills and ideas that will transpose into better interpretation and growing comfort with the subject.

Cooperation will only lead to an equilibrium.

Assalam U Alaikum!

Let us start from the idea that Economics is not a low scoring subject. What it needs is a smart analytical approach which can be infused by a smart work.

Economics is a very interesting subject and it also helps in securing good marks in Viva. You can see from my DMC that I have got good allocation due to my viva marks. Economics helped me alot in my Psychological Interview that consisted of 90% of questions from Economics. And that good psychological report added to my credentials in my final Viva.

When I was preparing for CSS Economics, I wandered tirelessly to all the book markets in search of a comprehensive book designed especially for CSS but unfortunately I could not find one. Then I started making my own notes and after a tremendous sincere effort of one and a half year I compiled these notes into a book. This book is now available in market and it is designed exclusively for CSS aspirants covering entire syllabus of paper A & B in a single book. "Economics for CSS/PMS by Saba Asghar Bhutta, published by Jahangir Publishers".

These days I am having a busy schedule but I will definitely take some time out for you people and share with you my strategy of preparation and attempting the papers.

Remember me in prayers.

Assalam U Alaikum Dear Aspirants!

Economics is a very interesting subject and you would enjoy your journey with Economics as it gives you full liberty to exercise your imagination. As you all know Economics consists of 2 papers. Paper A consists of Micro, Macro, Trade, Inflation, Unemployment, Money and Goods Markets, Keynesian Economics etc. and Paper B covers all aspects of Economy of Pakistan.

To score high in Economics you need to learn how to prepare and then how to attempt the paper.

Let us start from MCQs portion. 20 MCQs in paper A and 20 in paper B, total 40 marks for MCQs out of 200. It is a very important part of Economics paper. To nail it, practice past papers MCQs. You can have access to past papers solved MCQs in the same book that I had mentioned in my earlier post.

I will keep posting episode wise so that the things go systematically. Take good care of yourselves and keep preparing smartly till my next post.

Regards

Saba Asghar Bhutta
