Power of Media in the Modern World.


It was very easy but a challenging paper. Easy in the sense that topics were very common. Challenging in the sense that everybody could write the same material. So a competition of quality and creative material was required. I left "Women" topic because I knew most be crammers were available in exam hall who could attempt with good mix of Ayats, Ahadis, and quotation. I left "Democracy" topic because future is uncertain. "co.education , Merits and Demerits" very easy that could challenge me in material. "The food crisis: problems , challenges and opportunities for Pakistan" good topic worth writing. "English as the Medium of Education in Pakistan" controversial topic. "The future of UNO, Hopes and Hurdles" good topic. "Pakistan's War on terror and its impact on our psyche and politic-socio-economic fronts" hum ko terrorism sy dar lagta hy.


I avoid literary topics (Health is not a condition of matter, but of mind.) (There is no great genius without a mixture of madness.)



I assigned 30 minutes to three topics on the last page of the answer sheet. Jotted points on these three topics and finally selected (Power of Media in the Modern World).

On average my paper contained 8 words per line, 28 lines per page, and total 15 pages (including 2 pages on outline). I enjoyed the paper. Let's see how the examiner assesses my paper. I will be posting my outline after my last paper.

Doc: Your outlines justify the length of essay you wrote. You had a meaningful approach according to my perception. Inshallah all of you would score well.

Raz: Bro, waiting anxiously to know your way of attempting the paper.

Happy: Yes Writing on media would simply be interesting as it being a hot topic now a days. If i were there i would have attempted "Pakistan's war on Terror and its impact".

Well if i were giving the exams of CSS this year i would have chosed

-Power of media in the modern world.

I think its the first time i have seen these type of easy topics in Essay exams.
Even one who has not prepared very well can write the Essay on these topics.

But *the more easy topic in paper the more expectation an examiner would have from the candidates.
