Idioms were too much out of order

not truly the marks will be given from the whole paper

True! But these questions along with #1 makes 70 percent of the paper.

Idioms and pair of words were difficult... Rest of 25 marks seem easy but the stress in paper makes this different than what I am seeing comfortably at home.

Blunder in Precis will result in failure even if one get through all other questions.

It is a tacit prerequisite.

“The virtues of idleness”
The virtues of idleness are erroneously unrecognized and value of action is highly overrated. Those who are busy in doing the work they don’t know well have done more harm to the world than those who are not doing anything at all. Getting obsessed with doing something all the time is perilous while having breaks and pauses to enjoy peace of mind is vital to progress and peace . All the chaos around is an outcome of someone’s wrong actions and misdirected energies and efforts. Turbulent political history of the world and current situation around testifies this notion. Many a tragedy would have been averted if the people at helm had chosen to do nothing instead of doing everything possible for them. The dimension of the efforts being put in by various groups and organizations is inherently wrong making it impossible to bring about any improvement in the situation.

It's a perception but seems true. I too have experienced.

HI
This is my first attempt and after first four papers I can say CSS is not impossible

"Laziness is a Bliss"

English essay and Precis and composition were for those who know how to write, what to write, how to think and how to express your thoughts
It is not about your preparation only, it takes all years of education and how good is your memory.
It was a piece of cake for me all four of them so far
the difficulty I faced was the English Words that were asked to tell meanings, that was something that made me feel yes this is CSS.
