Dear first of all v welcome you in our community of css forum.you will learn alot here about css exam.
as u asked about the essay so dear the range of words is given in between 2500 to 3500. so i think no one can write more than 3500 words within 3 hours time period. per ager koi mujahid likh bhi deta hai than the material would also be relevant to the topic . i mean there must be quality aswel. i think if the material is related one than there would be no deduction in marks.
in the end i will repeat in 3 hours of time period it is difficult to cross the limit of 3500 words
regards

Default Does counting of words counts?

@ Ayeza S. There has been alot of discussion of this topic. whether or not word limit counts. Most of the forum members are of the openion that one should always be at safer side of words..as close to limit as possible.. perhaps they also mean that closeness also applies if one crosses word limit by a narrow margin. One thing is decided that quantity wud be there if one writes a reasonable essay. But, quality of essay should be the standard. by quality , i mean that your essay should touch all dimensions of topic. There must be blend of argument, persuasion, narrative and any other skills which essay reader demands of you. You must not sacrifice these things if they are explicitly mentioned in essay paper. However, I think, if one is confused about skills of essay due to lack of command[and i believe only few have required command] then one should make it as relevant to the topic as possible. There should be presence of theory and proposals.
I think, if you write your essay with intrest capturing eye then your examiner will reward you for that...
Secondly, it is purely my personal openion that essay setters mention number of words, and skills to confuse and muddle students thinking... it seems to be a trap to. It is ridiculous to assume that ur examiner have calculators to count or they literally count words. What they ,however, do is that they give u credit for how impressively, accurately, relevant material you lay across.

I choose to write essay on food crises:problems,challanges and opportunities for Pakistan.I feel that i should not have attempted it as there were other good topics available.anyway my outline was:

1.Introduction
2.The crises
3.Reasons:
3.1 Low per acre yield
3.2 Middleman
3.3 smuggling and hoarding
3.3 post harvest losses
4.Problems:
4.1 Farmer's end:
4.1.1 Lack of technical know how
4.1.2 traditional means of farming
4.2 Institutional Level:
4.2.1 absence of quality seeds
4.2.2 non conservation of water
4.2.3 Lack of Infrastructure
5. Opportunities
5.1 increasing per acre yield
5.2 broadening research base and
5.3 educating farmers
5.4 introducing modern means of cultivation
5.5 reducing post harvest losses
5.6 exporting the surplus after maintaining strategic buffer stock
6.conclusion
(linked it to importance of agriculture in view of threat from bio fuel).

Please comment on the outline as i am really worried over my essay.

Topic was not bad. It was good decision to write on this topic at least it was free from controversiality and was lesser risky.
As for as the outline is concerned it is to the point outline, nothing is irrelevant in the outline. One shortcoming which I have noted is non inclusion of remaining relevant points. This outline could be extended more because we have lot of other relevant points available to include in it to make it more interesting and scoring.



Regards

well thanks for the reply Raz.Actually what i remembered of my outline,i listed here.I wrote outline on two pages even though my writing is small.The other points which i remember to some extent were:

land reforms,small landholdings of farmers,subsistence farming,fertilizer crises this year in Pakistan.non availability of water,farms to market roads.

My only concern was that i may have gone too far than was required as i even mentioned global food crises in the essay and its impact on Pakistan.

Thanks for reassuring me.

Your outline (including the points above) seem impressive. I dont think you went too far, I agree with Raz, it was all relevant and I am hopeful that you will score well InshAllah.

@ zbaloch_204:

I find your outlines almost complete. And after reading your introductory lines in the post, I don't believe you have any problem in expressing yourself.

I am confident that you'll make it.

All the best.

PS: Anxiety is natural. I was afraid i'd fail in essay by a slight margin. But I got a very high score in it.
