1st year Urdu paper Presentation

Paper presentation is what does miracles. You may have given good answers but in a bad way. So, you cannot expect much out of your answer sheet. I know many students who are good at studying but poor at paper presentations. This thing leads them to poor marks in Urdu.

If you have excellent preparation and excellent paper presentation, you can expect upto 90% marks in Urdu. Paper layout, sequence, use of a marker, section divisions, etc cast a healthy impression on the paper checker. 

As a result, you get high marks out of favor. Here is comes when many shining students don't get good marks in Urdu.

Here are some guidelines for 1st year Urdu paper presentation:

1. Use a good marker in a good way

Using a black or blue marker is a good practice while attempting 1st year Urdu paper. It not only gives a good layout to your paper but also facilitates the paper checker to navigate to various sections and questions on your answer sheet. 

So, the use of markers is the first thing that adds value to your paper presentation. Use a cut-tip marker for the following items on your answer sheet:

  1. Questions
  2. Division lines
  3. Headings and subheadings in your answers
  4. Verses (ashaar) and Quotations in your answers
  5. Draw margin lines if necessary
You can use two sizes for headings and subheadings. The heading is like your question No.s, titles, etc. The subheadings are those which come within your answers and represent various parts of your answers for example, "Siaq-o-Sabaq" will be a subheading under the main heading.

In this way, you can keep your paper clean, sparse, and attractive. To differentiate the main headings and subheadings, you can underline the main headings, or you can centralize the main headings.

2. Star a new question on a new page

When you finish answering a question, the next questions may be started from the next page. It is so because it gives a good impression to the paper checker. He/She will easily understand and mark your questions. 

3. Use quotations and Poetry in answers

You should include poetry and quotations in your answers. You can use couplets (ashaar), quotations, and the translation of verses of the Holy Quran in the explanation of Ashaar, explanation of Nasar paragraph etc. You can also use proverbs in your answers. 

1st year urdu paper presentation tips

Use markers for writing verses of poetry, quotations, proverbs etc. You can leave a blank line above and below it. You can leave a little larger margin for this type of content. It covers more space and your answers become lengthy. You will get more marks if your answer's length is ideal.

Note: Do not include poetry/quotations etc in Khulasa of Nazam, Khulasa of Nasar, and Talkhees.

4. Keep your answers in the proper length

Many students don't know how many pages to write for which question. This is the main problem for the students. This is the main reason they get poor grades in 1st year Urdu. The boards have provided guidelines about how much content to be written for every question. You need to know this first before starting 1st year of Urdu paper preparation.

Here is the best and ideal length for every answer:

1. Explanation of Poems (Nazam k Ashaar ki tashreeh) = 3-4 pages
2. Explanation of Ghazal (Ghazal k ashaar ki tashreeh) = 1-1.5 page for each Shair
3. Siaq-o-Sabaaq = 8-12 lines
4. Explanation of Nasar (nasar k paragraph ki tashreh) = 2-3 pages
5. Summary of lesson(sabaq ka Khulasa) = almost 2.5 pages (+, - 4-5 lines)
6. Summary of Poem (Nazam ka Khulasa) = 7-10 lines
7. Dialogue (3 pages)/ Rodaad(3 pages)/ Raseed = 2 pages
8. Application: 1-2 pages
9. Talkhees (1/3 of the original paragraph)

You should start from the shortest answer to the largest. 1st of all attempt those question that requires short answers but carries more marks. For example, you can start with the summary of the poem which only needs 7-10 lines (almost half page).

Time management in 11th class Urdu papers is the most problematic phenomenon for students. You have to write almost 22 - 25 pages in 2 hours and 30 minutes. Many students do not attempt the whole paper in time and they miss a question or two. 

This is why many brilliant students get low marks in Urdu papers. Time management is really important in 1st year Urdu papers.

You need to keep both speed and quality of writing in mind. If you can write a page in 6 minutes, you can attempt your paper in time. You may like to see the following ideal time management.
