Bit disappointed over the lack of CPEC and China in this one but FPSC couldn't have made an easier paper. Really simple and to the point.

Except two questions at the end, the whole paper seems to be a research paper questions. Sociology won the battle in war of being difficultness. May be I am not familiar to subject, though I have read it once as an elective subject. Why it is discrimnation, in our institutes, we are taught one thing in a different angle and when it comes to be a part of exam, it takes U turns to be like a research paper.

I don't think the paper was that research focused, granted the things were asked with a bit of a twist but that should be expected from a competitive exam. I believe CSS aspirants should be able to solve such questions even if they're a bit research based, provided they have gone through the syllabus extensively and made their own notes. But I understand where you're coming from.

That Fpsc should follow the syllabus strictly. But I believe aspirants should be encouraged to utilize analytical thinking a little bit.
