    i need to know the syllabus
    I took Pak Culture in Fsc.
    got 71 in first year and 86 in second year.
    *GO TO THE LAHORE BOARD!! *
    (on mozand road near ganga ram hospital)
    They have a library there. You have to go to theie past papers section and DIG OUT ( literally) the past papers for pak culture.
    Make sure you get the right onea !! on top of the paper it should say pak culture part 1 (or 2).
    Once you have the right papers, ( do not get confuses with the federal board ones) make copies!

    Okay so now i'll tell you this:
    read all the sq and lq and mcqs on the past papers and find their answers!!
    refer to the internet (google is a mans best friend), matric and fsc part 2 Pak study books.

    thats all.

    write down all of the lq on the paper. add relevent quotes from the internet and stuff ! (this will add quality)

    I had trouble in first year becz i did not know what to refer.
    I studied lq (for first yr) from matric pak study book ! (although a lot of answers were in fsc part 2 pak.study)

    It got easier when I was in second year. because i took the compulsory pak.study in english!!
    Alot of what you learn there will be in your pak culture paper!

    (i studied the entire paper for part two..(sq were 95% similar...lq were 70% similar i.e two ques were from fsc pak study book)...and mcqs were 1% similar !!...None of them were from the past paper except one !!

    ps. i had my part two fsc teacher mark all the mcqs for me! ( this will save ur time because you will waste time searching the net)

    Paper pattern?
    20 mcqs (1 pt each)...5 l.q (10 pt each ..you will have to do three)...and you have to do 25 sq out of i think 30 (2 pt each)

    I had a lot of trouble because i had no one to guide me. Not even the teachers.

    So do take my advice.
    InshAllah you will do great

    For part two focus on past papers and fsc pak study book.

    Hope this helps. If you face any confusion regarding this feel free to ask me!!

    this is soo helpful
    thanks a lot.
    ok now my story
    i did o levels from outside pakistan and didnt had pak studies ever as a subject
    after coming to pak i did Fsc and ofcourse i couldnt take urdu coz its soo tough n all
    i took pak culture instead and then i had NO one to guide me
    i couldnt even take pak culture classes which was after school hours anyway somehow i managed some notes from friends and couldnt really concentrate on pak culture coz the other subjects were already killing me ( Fsc after Olevels is a nightmare :/ )
    and i got 40/100 in pak culture which really ruined my overall result
    but the second year was easier coz as you said its mostly from pak studies of part 2 thats totally right and got
    80/100 Alhamdulillah
    anyway now im repeating some subjects of Fsc and really have to improve pak cuture of 1st part

    Thanks a lot for your help!
    i'll surely take you advice.

    Hey I took Pak culture in Fsc after O levels. Get the syllabus and past papers from the Lahore Board. As for the books, there is a book called "Pakistani Culture for federal board" that is THE only board book out. Punjab Board has none.

    So this is how it'll go. You get the syllabus, then you look up the topics from the following books

    1. Nigel Kelley
    2. Rabani
    3.Bajwa
    4.The Pakistani Way of Life

    For the first year, this federal board book will help you out. Also it has a lot of pre-pakistan stuff in it, for which nigel kelley is the best.
    For the second year Kelley again for all the Constituions, and Bajwa and Rabani for Relations with other countries. FOCUS ON RELATIONS! My whole paper was full of them. I ha 81/100 in 1st year, and 80/100 in second. Feel free to inbox me if you have any question ever. Also in my first year exam, 80% stuff was from past papers. In second year hardly any.

    - - - Updated - - -

    oh in second year, the Pak Study FSc book helps a lot too.

    Oh So you already completed Fsc
    I am guessing you did not get the past papers?
    Wish I had saved my first year paper I would have scanned it for u.
    Refer to past papers if you wish and the first year paper will be easier now for you because you went through Fsc. Pak study book.
    (Matric Pak study book also has alot for answers to short questions)

    Past papers will help alot.!
    Best of luck.

    Noffess, I can totally relate. You are absolutely right. FSc. after O levels is a nightmare. I remember thinking the exact same thing when I did FSc. after O levels. And I took Pak Culture as well. Urdu was just too hard for me too.

    If anyone here needs first year Pakistan Culture notes, solved past papers or any help in studying, I'm willing to because when I seriously needed a forum like this to help me, I found none and had to literally go through more than ten books to get a measly 86 and I don't think anyone wants to go through that experience.

    The second year syllabus includes Government Structure of Pakistan, Constitutions of Pakistan, Relations of Pakistan with neighbouring countries and Russia, USA, Burma, and Commonwealth states in general, Separation of East and West Pakistan, All four Martial Laws, Mineral Resources of Pakistan, Education System, Agriculture System, Industries of Pakistan and Trade.

    - - - Updated - - -

    During both of my First and Second year exams, there was hardly anything from the past papers, especially in first year exams. Most of the topics covered weren't even outlined in the syllabus or were in the Pakistan Culture book (there is one by the board if you aren't aware of it).

    Hey, I really really need help. I am in the same situation and could really use some guidance. I have a few questions. I am really new to all this since I moved here from another country. Firstly, I would like to see your past papers if that's possible. I was able to bring up some past papers but for the same year there are different papers (I mean completely different). So is this because of different boards, If it is which one should I focus on (I live in Lahore btw). I am really lost. I need help ASAP. Thank you soo much.

    Hi, Ruqaiya,
    I've got the Pakistani Culture textbook, but it is for federal board, the publisher is national book foundation (NBF). It is divided into two parts, which I suppose refer to HSSC first year and HSSC second year. If you want a few scans of it, I can send it to you via email or Facebook. I haven't made notes, I study directly from the book. You can message me on Facebook, to find my account just enter my email, mzr.boy88 at gmail into the search box, or simply email me. I will be glad to help.
    There are five chapters in total, so it's easy if you work a little bit on it.

    If you need help then learn to clarify details to the precise point.

    First of all are you in your first year? Currently I am in my second year, Lahore board. Today was my Chemistry exam and on the 23rd is Pakistani Culture. There's a exploit in the M.C.Q's section.

    It is made from specific topics. I have past papers of Lahore board dating back to 2008-2015 except the 2009. Probably no one was listed to give the paper or the idiots at bise didn't place it in the book.

    For Long Question's, ALWAYS learn Islamic Constitution of 1973. Short Questions are breeze.

    Due to an accident I was only able to score 70 in first year while my friend scored a 74 in First year and a whopping 88 in Second year. It's a really easy subject and takes only a day to memorize, Remember paper presentation is your goal.

    Like I said I don't want to waste my time quoting things you already know. If you want more info PM with some sort of communication, Gmail or FB works.

    I'm going to copy paste this on all the forums you created, in case someone else needs help.

    Since its been such a long time you posted this, I am assuming you are done with FSc and have already given your exams. I would like to see the past papers or the papers that you had. I will be grateful for any help provided. I am in my second year, thanks to this post I managed my first year just fine but I am a little worried about my second year and require guidance.

    Hey, yes I would like to see the past papers and notes for the second year. I managed just fine in my first year but am completely lost in the second one. I have no idea what am I suppose to be doing. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Where can i find PAK CULTURE AND ADVANCED ENGLISH BOOKS for Federal board from either Islamabd or Jeddah? And is advanced english necessary instead of compulsory english as I did Olevels?
