There is no fixed pattern for source questions - they can come from any section.
Back when I gave my pak-studies exam in 2018 (May-June session) mine was from section 3 (talking about 12, 22 composites)
And now that I look at last year (May-June session) which is 2019 - the source question came from section 2 (again 12, 22 composites)
I would suggest that you look at last 5 years pattern (and not really old past paper patterns) and see the pattern yourself and go with your gut feeling. HOWEVER, this is too risky - considering these questions are COMPULSORY - so I will never ask you to take risks here so just study ALL three sections. I know time is an issue here - so here is the plan:

STOP READING THE TEXTBOOKS NOW
START READING FROM PAST PAPERS


I highly recommend past papers for SECTION 3 (not much for section 1 or 2)
Why? Because section 3 has A LOT OF INFO (in the textbook) and I hated this section especially because it felt so UNNECESSARY especially the ending.
So yeah I can understand why many people would skip this section - BUT lets not forget I got this section AS A COMPULSORY question! So yeah def recommending that you study this section from the past papers

For Section 2 ---> STUDY THE TIMELINE (i hope you have a timeline or if not - then search up online, I'm sure you will find something)
Why? Because there are so many events mentioned in this section that even if you study this section TWICE - you will still forget something! So yes study the timeline because usually these events were a result of something so once you have the timeline in front of you, not only would you remember the dates (which is very necessary in this part since there are so MANY DATES!) but also the events that took place and you will basically get a rough picture of each event.

For Section 1 -----> yeah well this section can easily be understood from both the textbook or the past papers but since we are running out of time - just review it from the past papers.

GOOD LUCK! and dont stress out seriously -- have confidence in your preparation no matter how little you might think it is.
Try to wake up early from now on (that is if you dont) because there is a lot to remember and understand and I honestly think morning are the BEST for such things.
Also take care, and stay healthy kiddo <3
[ps: I got an A in pak-studies and i did all this that I have just told you, not the best (maybe) but at least you won't be missing anything.]

Hey - i think you can skip Caliphate of Hazrat Umar (RA) but dont skip Caliphate of Abu Bakr (since the battles are not as much as Hazrat Umar's(RA)) and study pillars and article of faith because you will get the option at the end of P2 where they will give either two questions from Caliphate and one from pillars/articles of faith or two questions from pillars/articles of faith and one from Caliphate. So if they give a question from Caliphate of Hazrat Umar (RA) you can skip that one question.

As for prep: check out these notes

(ps; i skipped the question related to Caliphate of Hazrat Umar (RA) too, lol)
And like try not to stress out, you still have time, just go through the past papers now (if you haven't started it)
Good luck <33

Hey no worries - even if you study the past papers (5 years max) a day before the exams (wake up early so that it stays in ur head) that would help you too. I can totally understand how difficult it can be to truly remember everything - so i did exactly this lol which i usually wouldn't recommend because it sounds crazy and i dont know how i pulled it off even tho my compulsory questions were from section 3 and i still managed to get an A in history component - so yes one thing i noticed was that i didnt stress out throughout the exam - if you stress out, your mind will go blank, either do a breathing exercise to calm urself or just discover something about urself that by just doing that (or even thinking about it) makes you calm down - just keep fighting till the end. There is nothing to lose - if you dont do well in these subjects - it doesnt really matter much, since these are just scoring subjects. Your actual focus should be for next year - those 5 (or 6 if you took an extra subject) matters the MOST. So yeah just a passing grade in these two is enough - but do remember you are still capable of getting the best scores even with the knowledge you have so far.

Once again - Good luck and I am rooting for you, pal!

Hey! Try this out- I can't find the timeline that i used, however this one seems more promising since it mentions both section 1 and section 3 too.
Hope this helps you <3
Good luck

1. Allotment of Ferozpur to India
2.Allotment of Gurdaspur to India
3.Allotment of Calcutta to India
And if i'm not wrong,
I think East Pakistan should also be mentioned, because this was a big deal --> so much distance, communication problems, india was in between the two parts of Pakistan. Also the diversity problems, like bengalis, pashtuns, punjabis etc (and like Jinnah had to unite all these people)

Also I think all these allotments can come under one paragraph (one point) you need at least 3 reasons for a 7 mark question.

So allotment is one reason, then the east pakistan issue is another reason and lastly i think you can also talk about the water issue, that the headworks were in India.
