Can someone help me out on these as well?

What was refugee’s crises faced by Pakistan? (4)

What was canal water dispute? (4)

What were administrative problems for Pakistan? (4)

What was the issue of division of assets in 1947? (4)

What were the difficulties for the accession of the princely states at partition of India? (4)
Ok so this is all from memory, i havent studied history in a long time, so i will only be mentioning things briefly (also i might be missing some points). I hope it helps you.

What was refugee’s crises faced by Pakistan? (4)
After the unfair boundaries, so many hindus (and sikhs) and Muslims found themselves on the wrong side of the border. Pakistan was a bare land. We did not have the facilities to accommodate everyone! Also mention the communal violence, and how people were forced migration to create space.

What was canal water dispute? (4)
Pakistan was an agricultural country, it depended on canal water for irrigation. The headworks of those rivers (flowing into pakistan) were in india. They had all authority over it (and threatened pakistan), also started to build canals/dams and stuff on those rivers. (over here you can mention some rivers that were threatened)

What were administrative problems for Pakistan? (4)
East and West Pakistan had a lot of distance between each other, communication problems (like if help was needed in east pakistan, they won't be helped immediately - creating resentment) i think u can also mention refugee problem here as well. And the lack of government machinery too like pakistan didnt have proper govt buildings/facilitates (they were mostly in india) oh and also pakistan didnt have many administrators. (most of them were land owners)

What was the issue of division of assets in 1947? (4)
Pakistan didn't inherit govt buildings and they needed money to build them. India and Pakistan had to divide military assets, and wealth fairly. (which didnt happen - u can also mention that pakistan received old, broken machineries and weapons) also mention the money distribution that was held back and never given.

What were the difficulties for the accession of the princely states at partition of India? (4)

Lord Mountbatten asked princely states to either ascend to Pakistan or India. Most of them - who had muslim rulers, ascended to pakistan however the majority was neglected (mostly hindus) and the same goes for Muslim majority. Some of them were unwilling to ascend to either. Mention some princely states disputes here.

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!
broo what about the last history chapter
foreign relations, i have completed history except section 2 and that chp is left its just jskakkaka

Its geo and isl p2, sadly they're the difficult ones, lekin In shaa Allah i'll ace them
InshaAllah. I'm rooting for you, pal. I know you will ace them.

I'd hate to ask but, you got any tips or something for me for the Pak Studies paper? I am pretty much clueless on the matter and I barely have 8 months to learn and prepare the 3 History Sections, 12 Geography topics and those insanely huge amount of past papers.

Thank you soo much.Pak Studies isnt taht difficult, for geo esp, which is easier u need to read the book thoroughly atleast 3 times and then attempt pasta papers from 2019 and going backwards, u can also use notes of some credible teacher depending where u live.Now comes the difficult part, which is history ,u need to make ur own notes and ur own answers, regularly consult the mark scheme and religiously follow the examiner report.Also u should use notes and answers, i personally attempted all past papers from 2001 to 2020, the format for the 14 marks in 2001 and 2020 is same and questions do get oft repeated, i only did written practice of difficult questions from 2001 to 2015, but from 2015 onwards i have solved every single question(Yes, all 5 of 1 paper)

Plus you have a lot of time so dont get discouraged
Thanks a lot, man. This was really helpful. The light's out right now and my data is going to end soon, so I'll just sit in the balcony and read the textbooks to pass the time XD.

Thank you really. I pray your exams go well and you pass with good grades, InshaAllah.

P.S: Those 'pasta papers' sound pretty delicious :)
