Default PMS Scoring subjects

Asslamo alikum all!
I was looking for some opinions about scoring subjects in PMS exams but could not find satisfactory response so I initiated this thread.

Members, especially those who appeared in PMS exams, are requested to share their experiences and views regarding Mass Communication, Geography, and Psychology especially. Those who opted Psy. kindly share If Psychology is scoring? I am interested in getting some idea about some good books of Mass com. and Geography too.

Till now, from previous DMCs etc., I have gotten a rough idea that Geography, Punjabi, and Social work are considered scoring subjects in PMS. Any guidance and recommendations will be highly appreciated.

Regards

Punjab's talent actually resides in Karachi lol.
Well I think your subject combination is best. Social work, public ad. Geography, mass communication and Punjabi are considered high scoring. No idea of psychology.
I myself preparing for the said exam with public ad. Social work and mass communication.

I was also thinking that Punjab's talent is on leave, changed their domicile or hibernated
Anyways! How was your experience with mass comm?? Ever scoring subject or often slaughtered (like journalism in CSS)?? Please tell me about its books too. Is it lengthy?

Thats great! But how did you manage to get such a good score without even consulting a book? I mean... Do you have educational background in this subject or what? What was your strategy to attempt these papers?

Allah ka he koi karam tha i swear..but i strongly hate such an approach,i mean agar book parhli hoti tou shayad 140 plus leta,and no i have an MBA and mass com say taluq kam he hai

i guess general questions take ones to a par score..

same was the case with my essay,as i never wrote an essay before my exam..i scored 48 & 74 respectively in 012&014

by general questions i meant the opinion based and i avoided the gener

i avoided the generic questions..like PEMRA ordinance for example,i knew i had not covered it,i never opted to solve any question that demanded its applicability..so i was left with the general questions where i gave my 100 percent to fetch something above average..

so it is highly recommended that mass com paper be solved with a good mix of both generic as well as opinion based questions so as to outperform people like me lol
