@ storm123 NUML takes private exam twice a year. One is in April and other one in September. The advertisement has not been published yet. But the last date for submission of form and fee would be 20th Feb 2012 most probably. One is supposed to take the exam of ten papers. Exam fee is 10,000 rupees.U can get books from NUML Islamabad or from its regional campuses. Inshallah I shall appear for these exams in April 2012.

@ storm123

# The previous papers will be provided to you through your personal contact with the people there in the main building of NUML Islamabad, on personal request. First get hold of previous papers and evaluate either u can do it or not.

# At least 5 papers should be passed in one attempt.

Yes, 10 papers are 10 subjects.Those 10 paper names are

1. History of English Literature and Literary Criticism
2. Phonetics n Phonology
3. Poetry
4. Drama
5. Prose
6. TEFL
7. General n Historical Linguistics
8. Novel
9. Essay
10. American n Canadien Literature

# Well , course is easy or difficult, depends on one's level of commitment.

# 2 years gap is a must between B.A and M.A. You can take exam in 2013.

# M.A English NUML course is absolutely different FROM P.U.

# Books are available from NUML Book bank inside campus.

# Other private M.A offered by NUML is M.A Urdu only.

# Start your preparation from "History of English Literaure"
by Michael Alexander or for understanding as a beginner, study from "History of English Literature" by B.R. Malik.

I welcome more questions ! !

@ arjumand zia
you are supposed to pass 5 papers in one attempt. Pass percentage is 50 %.

@ storm 123, @ arjumand zia

and all those who want to take M.A English exam from NUML as private candidates, check this one

NUML - MA Englsih Course Details

Syllabus is more or less the same for private and regular candidates.

@ arjumandzia

Firstly, Phonetics and Phonology is a subject of Linguistics, not of Literature.

1. Phonetics and Phonology

1. English Phonetics and Phonology by Roach, Peter
2. A Dictionary of English pronunciation by Jones, Daniel & Gimson, A.C.
3. An Outline Of English Phonetics by Jones, Daniel

These three books are sufficient to prepare this subjects. For understanding difficult things, take help from internet.


2. Poetry

1. A Quintessence of Classical Poetry-NUML
2. A Quintessence of Romantic Poetry -NUML
The above two are the text books and you need to buy separate key books for each poet published by either New Kitab Mahal or Famous Publishers.

a. Geoffrey Chaucer
b. Edmund Spenser
c. John Milton
d. Alexander Pope
e. John Donne
f. William Wordsworth
g. .................
Total potes are 13.

3. Drama


The same goes for Drama paper. Drama text books and separate keybooks.

There is a alot of material available for Literature preparation on internet as well.


Your profile tells that you live in Islamabad. Go to NUML Islamabad. Request the Exam branch to get hold of previous papers.
