PQWL is Pooled Quota Waiting List and GNWL is General quota Waiting List.
PQWL is like 'on the way' and point station, GNWL is 'train departure' station to destination station.
PQWL, it is just subject to a particular source of departure and destination. For example, a train is from Mumbai to Bangalore via Solapur junction. If you would like to reserve ticket from Solapur to Bangalore or prior destination for the same (Mumbai to Bangalore) train then you will get ticket as PQWL of Solapur booking in case if there is no seat/berth available. This is little tough to get confirmation since few seats/berth available as Solapur/station quota and less chances and less percentage to get cancellation the ticket from Solapur passengers and your ticket remain same status or very less forward.
Instead you can reserve ticket from Mumbai to Bangalore (only little extra rupees) as General quota but Boarding can be from Solapur (it should be mentioned in ticket reservation form and printed ticket by officials), it will help to get confirmation of seats/berth or chances for getting seats/berth as in case it is GNWL (General Waiting List) as mass booking and high chances of large cancellation from Mumbai to Bangalore to get benefit by GNWL.
So, GNWL has better chances of getting confirmation of the railway ticket than PQWL.
