Not in a mood to debate but thats just how I like it. I like tough papers which create competition and discourage cramming and encourage analytical and deep study. You may think otherwise and I respect your opinion but to each his own

I have observed that views of passed candidates change immensely after passing exams.Before the papers,one is praying for easy and simple papers.Once one has passed exams,he expects others to do well in even in very tough papers.

We must have feel for others in same manner as we feel and sympathise with ourselves.Seniors should encourage juniors instead of scare them away.One bad paper of Geography does not put a seal upon on the fact that Geo is no more a scoring subject.Both papers were unexpected in very soft terms but for next year,one should be determined to work hard and do well next year.

Dear Geography-takers,

let me ease your torment through a verse "perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not" _Surah Al Baqarah_216

please do NOT lose hope...(real or perceived) difficulty level of papers has NO bearing on the marks whatsoever....the Islamic history paper of 2010 was the EASIEST paper in the history ( ) yet majority of the candidates scored very low marks in it..most of us couldnt even exceed 100/200!! yours truly got 92/200, despite getting 17/20 objectives right in EACH paper ..journalism of 2010 was also an easy one (communication, mag journalism, PR etc) there i got 20/20 objectives correct, yet my score was 47/100 !!

on the other hand, business administration paper felt like a "difficult" one since there was no numerical (/scoring) question (yup, theoretical questions even in the financial portion!) and many weird objectives related to data storage/IT whatever....still, the scores were pretty good (i got 64)

so dont worry..stay focused! if anything, the difficulty level is directly proportional to marks (i.e the greater the diff level, the greater the marks obtained)

Come On people.. It is CSS not metric exams... U people should make Ur mind for all such unexpected papers... They are there to judge u people by giving such Questions otherwise it will b really difficult for them to select people who really deserves to be a CSP officer...!!! May b both papers were unexpected but they were not difficult to solve...!!! My both papers were gud Alhamdulliah Although they were unexpected for me as well but i really felt that day, that i am giving exams of CSS Gudluck to everyone!!!

I am still awaiting Geography-genious Syda Sabaht's comments on Geography paper 2012.

As far as mcqs of Paper I of were concerned mcqs were somewhat conventional and easier as compared to geo II.

Few of them that I can recall.

1-Poljes and dolines assossociated with which type of land forms. ---Karst region.
2-What is the science of studying land forms.-------morphology
3-Mediterraneans region falls in latitude----- 40-50 north and south.
4-lines on a map connecting points having same amount of rainfall---isohytes

Later on I shall try to post remaining ones

Default Medditeranian Climatic Region

Dear Ranjha!

Medditeranian Claimatic Region falls between 40degN and 40degS lattitude. I wonder if this option was there in the options! Do you reckon?

Please post remaining MCQs of Paper 1 for the benefit of the CSS community here.
