#CSS Thread

Salam all,

I've been receiving quite a few queries regarding the CSS #Essay. The following thread focuses on the nuanced aspects of the paper that most CSS candidates tend to overlook during preparation:

There is quite a lot of uncertainty surrounding the Essay paper with each academy/mentorship program suggesting a separate technique.
While there is no formal guideline provided by FPSC on the subject, the examiner feedback reports can shed some light on what's expected.

The essay is supposed to judge a candidate's ability to explain a topic in a rational, well-researched, and comprehensive manner. The arguments you make must be grammatically-correct, relevant, and backed by research. Flowery and emotive expression isn't necessary.

Früher war das #Essay die Königsdisziplin des Foijdong. Kluge, Enzensberger, Bohrer, Cioran etc. Heute sehen wir einen Überbietungswettbewerb in Stupidität in diesem Genre, der sich von Welt über NZZ bis zur FAZ zieht. Der Artikel von Sciuto von heute, fälschlicherweise als 1/
Essay tituliert, ist einer der Beispiele, dass wir, die Leser*innen, von der Zeitung bezahlt werden müssten, um ihn zu lesen.
Um ihm gerecht zu werden, dieser Anhäufung von Missverständnissen, sprachlichen Fehlern und Borniertheit, werde ich im Sinne des #TruthSandwich ein 2/
paar Erkenntnisse voranstellen.

3/ As soon as the Internet happened, s/w stopped being solely about computer-to-human interaction and started being about human-to-human interaction. We had new applications like the Web, email, IM and forums, all of which were abt humans communicating with 1 another through s/w.

If you’re thinking of moving to Hollywood or Broadway or pursuing a creative dream at all, you need to stop and consider - when will you quit? What’s too far? What sacrifice are you not willing to make?
#thread #essay 1/9
Now I’m not talking about moral or ethical considerations - you need to establish boundaries and stick to them. I’m saying ask yourself what is more important than following my dream? Having a house? A steady paycheck? Long term relationships? A “normal” life?
Being able to prove your worth to your family? Friends? At your high school reunion? At your 30th high school reunion? What’s the tipping point where you surrender this quest? It’s okay to have one - as long as you recognize and acknowledge it.
