    In the Mazmoon, 9 out of 15 marks are awarded for language usage so definitely they will be looking for a complex vocabulary....but if u try to use a tough word and unfortunately use it in a wrong way, so it will create a negative impression on the examiner...therefore instead of creating that impression its better to stay out of it.
    Anyways there are still 5 months in the exams. u can start working on your vocabulary from today and believe me u can improve alot in this time if u want to!

    It's very hard for me to write an essay of of just 150 words BCS I become totally blank about what to write in that topic like for instance I was viewing nov 2016 second language Urdu paper 1 and the topic was 'imtihan or zehni Dabao' so it was very difficult for me to write a good essay on it. So could u guys help me with that from where should i start practicing to write a good essay or dailogues or good report and speech. How should I improve my vocab cuz seriously my Urdu is very bad. Could u guys tell me how do u started preparing for this exam

    They give the points for the essay so that no one becomes totally blank during the paper...just think a little about those points and don't panic if nothing is coming to ure head. Coz it will eventually if u think calmly and deeply. I got the w 16 paper and that topic I wrote well. ,1 para of 4-5 lines....how hard is it?....dont practice, just read and ....read alot! ..start from your book then other help books of the course, reading newspapers will also help, ull find many new words there...same goes for letters,reports and dialogues
    Also, don't forget to increase ure writing speed
    All the very best

    He fatima ,
    Don't worry cuz Urdu second language is too easy so don't stress out . I have given it recently. The only thing that bothers is translation and mahawras . so practice . topics for composition are easy and u have to only write 150 words of it so for Urdu paper start reading newspapers or any Urdu book u could find plus follow the above tip which ayesha asif 333 wrote . BEST OF LUCK

    By the Grace of Almighty Allah I got A* in Urdu.
    The Essay task is quite simple, they give you the topic and helping points to write your essay.
    Follow the rubric: write 150-160 words.
    Of the three bullet points given, discuss each point and write two to three points relevant to the each bullet point given,
    It's better to make three paragraphs one each for one bullet point. This surely ensure your marks.
    As far as marks of language is concerned; write legibly, use sentences of moderate length; not to short or too long.
    If you struggle with vocabulary write simple urdu, that would surely get you marks.

    Hope I was of little assistance.

    I am an Urdu A student and wanted to ask that which difficulty of language is required to get a perfect 110/110? I personally use Rumi's words (Persian) and Arabic from Al-Quran. E.g. I crafted this 'shair' in 10 mints
