Default How to prepare for MA English?

Hello Friends!

Many people on this forum are asking for help as how they should do the preparation of MA English (especially from Punjab University),some are sending private messages to me as well. Well, the course, the books are available in the market. NKM books can be consulted. Though the material in these books is not of high quality, but still sufficient to carry u through the exam. All u have to do is to prepare right questions from each book, here u need some guidance. I am posting all the questions related to these books in the course prescribed by Punjab University.

There are five papers in Part 1 and five in part 2.
Each paper has 5 to 6 authors and u should prepare minimum 4 authors of each paper in order to attempt 100% paper (as you have to attempt minimum 4 questions in each paper and usually, at least one question is asked from each book). So if u prepare 4 authors of each paper u can attempt that paper.

Prepare the following questions and consult past papers to know the paper pattern. It will be beneficial to u.

Well i posted all these questions while keeping in view the course of Punjab University, so can't say what u got in your Linguistics course. I will post important questions of Linguistics as well, but that would be according to the course of Punjab University. Moreover university doesn't matter a lot. If u got same books and authors, the same questions will be asked from u.

As far as objectives are acocerned, u can prepare them by reading the deatiled synopses of the novels,that will be sufficient, but where plays are concerned u should read them thoroughly.

Exclamation regarding the studies and books and subjects of LINGUISTICS,,,

@ hina


regarding the studies and books and subjects of LINGUISTICS,,, i strongly suggest you to consult any student of NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF MODERN LANGUAGES (NUML) because they are offering 10 subjects in Literature and 10 subjects in Linguistics........ i have done MA ENGLISH from NUML,,,, so that's why i am asking to get assist from any NUMLIAN...... they know better about the linguistics subjects

Thumbs up MA English

Salam all seniors and juniors!
I have bee the student of MA English and now a days teaching same at Hazara University. Well! so far preparation and understanding of English literature and language is concern, one can not do it without developing his personal love and interest in the subject. Literature is not something to mug up from books rather it is something to feel. If anyone needs any help regarding any course of MA english except stylistics I would love to be there.
Regards
