Default Mathematics as an optional subject

Assalam-u-Alaikum to All.
I have done BS(CS) and want to appear in CSS 2009 INSHA ALLAH, i like mathematics. Kindly suggest me whether pure mathematics can be chosen as an optional subject?, some peaople advised me to chose other simple subjects like Journlism & sociology. So plz seniors advice me that whether pure maths will be easy to clear in exams with good marks or its better to opt other subjects.
Thank you
& Waiting for your kind guidance.

I also hold BS Hon's degree in CS and have excellent knowledge of Mathematics coupled with excellent grades but i would like to suggest you not to opt Pure Mathematics. I don't mean to under estimate your credibility but Pure Mathematics requires more time to prepare as compared to other subjects. In subjects like pure mathematics, by the day end you may come up with flying colours or probably have to face something untoward. Therefore, choose subjects like Computer Science, History, Journalsim, Socialogy, Punjabi, etc so that you may equally allocate time to each subject.

Before choosing even a single subject, keep the following points in your point.
  • The amount of time you are left with.
  • The nature of subject
  • Estimated time required to cover the syllabus
  • Past papers
  • Your aptitude, higly important
  • Your past knowledge about the subject
  • Past Datesheet, most people don't consider Date sheet but it's important too
  • Availability of material and support pertaining to that specific subject

Remember, CSS is not just about passion and dreams, it's about attitude and realistic approach. Prudently consider each subject and then decide what to choose or not. Most people choose some subject e.g. XYZ and then by the day end they come accross the reality.

Therefore, i would suggest you to consider atleast the stipulated points before you step forward to embark upon CSS preparation.

God bless,
