Can anyone shed some light on what this is referring to? exactly what is the thing being asked, are these the modern perspectives of psychology or something else?
Brother recent expansion, scope and applications of psychology are being asked here. It's mean usage of psychology in organizations/industry, health improvement, different testing and public policy formulation etc..

Yes.
Structuralism, Functionalism, Gestalt psychology, psychoanalysis etc. are ancient schools of thought/perspectives/viewpoints (different terms for same concept). These ancient perspectives helped to get into the understanding of psychology in its initial periods. However, they and their ways of understanding behaviour and thoughts have become outdated as the science of psychology has achieved much advanced status than before.


Today, modern perspectives are used to study psychology and its different concepts. Psychoanalysis comes into this section too. Though its functionality has become very limited, still its therapies are used to treat various disorders. Other modern perspectives that are in fashion can be: Psychodynamic perspective, Behaviourism, Humanistic perspective, biopsychological perspective and cognitive perspective. Discussing them will suffice for css exam.

For your general knowledge only: Among other modern perspectives have emerged Sociocultural Perspective and Evolutionary one, but they require more time and study to get valued. Furthermore, they should not be written in css exam if modern perspectives are asked to describe. Hope you got everything i wrote !!!
-Regards.

You will also have to, however, put some light on following modern perspectives in addition to the four traditional schools of thought:
- Biopsychological Perspective
- Sociocultural Perspective
- Evolutionary Perspective

Take it as a friendly advice; Give the first topic a brief reading and start studying psychology in detail from second topic of the syllabus, i.e. biological perspective, and onward. Gradually you will grab every single concept and will find psychology as one of the easiest subjects in css syllabus!!

Apart from this, try to study following topics with a considerable attention and interest as they are the most scoring ones and will let you properly finish with your paper during exam:
-Biological Perspective.
-Learning.
-Personality
-Motivation and Emotion.
-Perception is also important but above four do count !!

And as far as syllabus is concerned, it is only bound to create confusion

Recent trends encompass the applications of psychology in connected fields. The topic can be read from Feldman, page 25.
