Maya civilization in Andes
Indus valley civilization had trade ties with Mesopotamia
Mongols were pastriolists
And that city Ant..SOmething is the capital of Madagascar

Please lets put up more mcqs.. what were the mcqs?

P.s. I took it for the first time and its unfair that they gave such a tough exam because some people did well last time... are they intentionally set out to fail people? Its so stupid.. if they are changing the exam pattern they should work on changing their mind sets first

None of the questions was out of the course. The Australian Dairy thing is included in Economic Geography's portion called Economic Activities : primary, secondary and tertiary. Primary Activity: agricultural systems subsistence, intensive, extensive, mechanized and mixed farming. So there is no point complining that it was out of the pattern. The pattern you are talking about favours those who cram the 20 questions from the Dogar cram series or Jahangir Cram series or whatever that thing is called.

And, I am not pointing at anyone here and please don't be so naive. We are all grown men here. I am just pointing out what I believe FPSC is doing.

And you said if I prepared it or not, you should know that I have also born what occurred between 2 to 5 pm today. I believe you should consider yourself lucky that you have cleared 2011 (MashALLAH) when geography paper (let's not talk about others) was not so unexpected. So, all I mean to say here is that I believe FPSC is going to rout the cram series thing and as far as my opinion goes, I am in favour of it. I don't care if I fail or pass this year. Failing playing fair does not hurt as much as failing when playing at an unlevelled field does brother.

well i always consider myself lucky and the more i work hard the more luck favors me...yes when did i say that the paper is out of course? i know that where did that question come from and i even know that it is written in economic geography by fazle karim khan and i had read it in 2011 and 2012 too brother. FPSC is not discouraging cramming, the next year you will see again may be it will be the same kind of paper as it was in 2011. yes cramming of all sorts must be discouraged but if the paper is tough one should accept it and not be a hero that yes it was such an easy paper..
P.S . i hope you too get lucky this time

My opinion is not based on the geography exam only. I have said before and I repeat, other optionals which I have sat for, I have seen the deviations.

P.S. Inferring from the discusion going on this thread, I guess getting lucky wouldn't be easy this time around

yes and i fully support that deviations like the one in journalism or sociology. but the problem is that these deviations are not permanent either. like last time my british history paper was totally opinion based and this time it was more related to cramming. similarly even in Geo paper 2 , check the question of major crops in south asia and their major regions.
now all these regions have to be crammed otherwise one cannot write the answer.
anyways goodluck to you
adios

I like the current pattern of opinion based and non-conventional questions. This should be continued and enhanced for 2012. The aim should be to pass no more than 400 in written so that people do not go through torture of waiting as we are doing for 2011

Thank you guys for your terrible comments. I was going to opt it in next attempt but now you and the paper have changed my mind.

It hasn't even any bright side to look.

Non-controversial doesn't mean that people cant pass it! 400 or 4000, Thank God that he has taken everything in His hand, else the people like you, wont even pass a single. And congratulations that you have already passed it.
