Hi, well u have a lot of time for MJ 2021 so dont get stressed ig, i appeared for oct nov and my exams went really well. You should right now study indepth all of ur topics, every single one in extreme detail since a question is bound to come from anywhere and not only from the past papers. For hist, u need to like read the book once ,not more than that, it helps u to get a gist of all the dates, imp events etc and use some notes from a teacher thats known to have good quality notes, i used Sir Amir's notes since im in Isb. For geo, i cannot emphsize how imp it is to read the book, atleast 3 times in rigorous detail, since many diagrams frm the book come in the papers, eg a structure of a derrick came and we were asked to label it, it was the exact same diagram from the book. Now we come to the most diff topic,in my own opinion which is Islamiyat. For Isl, u need to have like a prime book from where u r gonna study and get info, i chose Yasmin Malik's book, Nighat farooq bajwas book , hammad bn nishat etc. Secondly, u need to cover the entire syllabus in detail, do not leave anything at all, Although, I did leave jihad in P2 and just put in a silent prayer k jihad se na aye(shukar hai aya bhi nhi:)). You need to assign atleast 2 months for past papers practice, and since u have a lot of time right now, i would recommend that u should do full papers, each and every question and lay special emphasis on Q2 of P2 and P1, since they are compulsory, u have to prepare them the BEST u can. Also u need to gain info relating every single thing eg in MJ 2020 , a question came to write the details of Battle of Yarmuk(10), many books are short on detail on the caliphs, so u need to consult atleast 2 books individually for caliphs, i chose nighat bajwa's and hammad ibn nishat's books. For all subj u need to study level marking and read example candidate responses since CAIE examiners themselves highlight the mistakes of students making it easier for u to score A*s. BTW this is all based on my perosnal opinion, these are the strategies i used when I appeared in ON. On a concluding note, i would urge u too practice past papers extensively, i filled an entire 350 pg register just with solving papers. Abhi result nhi aya mera so I dont know whether my advice is credible or not, lekin feel free to follow it and agar koi masla bane to pls ask :)

Hey, thank you so much.
I've got farkanda noor's book for islam. Would that be okay?
Also, my urdu sucks probably because I didn't study it from the beginning. Got any advices?
It is syllabus b.
Thanks

I have urdu b too,although its one of my least fav subj lekin khair i still manage to score fairly decent marks in it, for it i'd say u must read urdu novels and newspapers, any short stories etc and note down the vocab used, since it will help u greatly in P1 translation. TBVH i wouldnt't recommend farkhanda noor at all, i used it myself in grade 9, lekin found out that its best for internal exams.From farkhanda noor , i did personalities and articles only. Although, i did articels from 6 diff books. But the best book in my opinion is nighat bajwas learning islamiyat, since it contains immense detail regarding caliphs and other subj. However, if u feel ur comfortable with Farkhanda Noor then go with it , lekin note that its updated version was in 2009 and now CAIE has introduced much stuff which it doesn't fulfill
