No difference between the syllabus of KPK PMS and that of CSS except CSS interview passing marks are 100 while interview passing marks of KPK PMS are 120. However there is much difference between the syllabus of CSS and syllabi of the PMS exams of the other provinces.

there is also a difference in the pattern of papers. Like there are no Mcq's in almost all 200 marks subjects, and some other 100 marks subjects like Sociology, Journalism, and I.Law

Yes, you are right and the non availability of MCQs in the PMS paper<s> may be a plus point as well as a negative point depending on the nature and strategy of the study of candidates. In the same way the availability of MCQs in CSS papers may be a plus point as well as a negative point depending on the nature and strategy of the study of candidates.

Non-availability of MCQs in PMS is a negative point not a plus as far as I understand. Because MCQs although are an international standard for testing, are far better easier to get good scores compared with other type of questions. A question in which you simply have to write down the answer is more difficult when you do not remember any clue to the answer, while the options in the MCQs themselves give clues to the answers, and even a forgotten answer (if read and memorized earlier) can be recalled with a little effort. I have always scored better in MCQ type tests as compared to subjective tests.

Yes brother, your argument is weighty. But i think it mostly depends on the nature of our study of the subject whether we give more time to the objective part or subjective part of the subject. Like for example a candidate may solve a question or questions in a CSS paper without knowing answers of the MCQs on the same question or questions in the paper. This is because it needs a comprehensive study of the subject or atleast the topic to solve the MCQs on that subject or topic in the paper. Which is
,according to my view, almost impossible to cover a subject intensively as well as extensively especially if the subject is not your field of specialization. Because as we all know that competitive exams take only those MCQs on the subjects which even the specialists of the subjects find very difficult to answer. So this way the availability of MCQs in a paper of competitive exam may be a negative point in my personal view.
In the same way a candidate may easily solve all the MCQs of a paper on any subject in competitive exam without solving even two or more questions of the paper. This is because a candidate may have very intensive and extensive study of already solved MCQs on a subject paper of competitive exam. So in this case the availability of MCQs in the paper may be a plus point. So my point is that it mostly depends on the nature of our study of the subject whether we give more time to the objective part or subjective part of the subject.

CSS is much much better than PCS. Faster promotions and awesome working environment make CSS superior. The only post in PCS that is good is Asst Commisioner (provincial ).
