Very smart paper. In every question, four questions are set. In every question, many candidates would know two or three sub answers. Though paper seems to be easy but set in a way to snatch sub questions' marks in every main question. Math is very difficult, it takes years to grasp such type of math. And when we would prepare such math, then FPSC would take its new youturn in different kind of questions. Knowledge is an ocean, we are drops, FPSC is a Pacific. Now problem is that how to satisfy a Pacific ocean with a drop of water!

I was talking about 3 three that have been done all 3 were very strait forward. I found essay to be pretty doable at least for me. Composition was not bad either.

There haven't been any surprises for me so far. But everyone is different, a lot of people found the essay topics surprising to say the least.
