Default redmax..+ any member from Pesh having MA English Degree

Really Thanx redmax..although u have a degree of Sindh but thanks for giving your time.

(1) Now I want notes and then relevant books for each subject.
(2) I want to be guided for important material for each subject (as I am appearing as a private candidate so i would have to be selective as languages take much time to study).
I will be really thankful for ur guidance.
May Allah Bless Us All.

(2) most expected and most important topics to prepare for every subjects.
Zainab as i want to appear as a private candidate from Peshawar Uni so i want to be selective.
now 1 question from u is that would it be possible for me to prepare the previous course in the rest time period as i have nothing to read or study till now.
2nd question is that when u would be able to provide me notes as i want to start study as soon as possible. Kindly tell me that time which is suitable for u. I will be there Insha Allah to discuss with you, I have added u at yahoo.
