>Yes...the meanings are to be written along with the muhawras (check out past papers)
>Yes all the words are included in the total word count though there is a little relaxation for you, like if the word limit is 150, you could go up till 160 but no more
> Yes...like I said above, everything is included from the start to end
I suggest that after solving past papers, read mark schemes and examiner reports, which would familiarize you with the common mistakes that candidates make

As for other tips for Urdu-B, since it's a language, it can't be improved overnight. For me, it was like a piece of cake cuz from our childhood, I've been reading a lot, magazines, books and everything which built my language skill. I never had any problem in Urdu or English at all. So, the more you read, the better is your language. You wouldn't believe that I only prepared Urdu in the last 10 days before my exams. If you have 6-month or a year to take your exams, you still have time. At this phase of your life, you obviously wouldn't like childish stories, so you'd better read Urdu magazines, articles or novels or newspapers. Just fix a time like an hour or two from your day for it, it would do. This, all, applies to English as well. For English, read classic novels of Jane Austen and Charles Dickens. But, of course, all of this requires time.

The next thing, you needa do, is practice past papers. After you think you have pretty much grabbed the basic skills and are now at least half-ready for your exam, start solving past papers. You need to solve it on your own, do your best at it and then check it out through Mark Scheme and never forget to read Examiner's Report. Be confident about what you attempt. It's Ordinary Level and examiners, fortunately, don't expect much from us. However, you need to be sure of the authenticity of what you are writing and you should be efficient in language.

Excuse me....I don't think so that we need to write the meanings of the mahawrats...its also not mentioned in the question, which only demands the sentences

oh yes! I just checked that and the meanings are not to be written, but that doesn't make any difference for you, for unless you don't know the proper meaning, you can't produce meaningful sentences.
zehra punjwani please note that....My apologies for creating confusion!

i took the urdu exam in may 2015 and got an A*.
no, meaning is not required for muhavarat.
no, prepositions are not counted e.g. ki, ke etc.
i wrote alif-be-jeem in my letter.

my english is good but my urdu is pretty bad.
so, if your urdu vocabulary is not very good, do what i did: stick to the word limit and write in simple urdu but with completely accurate grammar.
