Current Affairs

To prepare for any competitive exam, one of the important sections to read and learn is current affairs. Exams like UPSC, Bank, SSC, RRB or any Government (Sarkari) Exam demand aspirants to be updated with what’s happening in India and around the world. Current affairs is an integral part of the general awareness section of these exams.

In order to prepare you for the challenges in the exam or competition you are aspiring for, we cover the periodic and category-wise current affairs topics that are relevant for all types of competitive exams mentioned above.

Why is it important to read current affairs?

Current Affairs refer to the events of national and international importance relevant from competitive exams perspective like Civil Services Exam, Bank exam, etc. With the change in the pattern of examinations, questions related to current events and news have assumed a major role in deciding the fate of students.

Broadly, the type of questions asked in the general awareness section can be divided into two:

The static portion pertains to that section of the UPSC syllabus or other exams syllabus that doesn’t change. For instance, the Revolt of 1857, the physical features of India, etc.

The dynamic portion pertains to current affairs. The best bet to cover current affairs is the daily newspaper and following credible sources like Press Information Bureau (PIB) and Yojana Magazine.

A good understanding of Current Affairs is central to success in the IAS exam, Government exams, or any competitive exam. The current affairs span subjects like history, geography, economy, environment and ecology, polity, science and technology etc.

Candidates should remain updated on current affairs that create headlines nationally as well as internationally. In fact, recent trends have shown that the static and dynamic portions of current affairs syllabus have significant overlap. 

The probability of encountering unexpected questions from current affairs in the traditionally static portions of the syllabus is quite high.

All you need to know about UPSC Current Affairs for IAS exam 2020

For UPSC current affairs, the most important thing is to segregate the topics in the news as per the IAS Syllabus for Prelims and Mains. For UPSC current affairs related to IAS Prelims, it is still somewhat easier as there is just one GS paper. However, arranging UPSC current affairs notes for IAS Mains is rather challenging because of the comprehensive syllabus and descriptive-essay type questions.

For daily current affairs, newspapers are the best source. Magazines like Yojana, Kurukshetra can be used for weekly Current Affairs followup. While a monthly magazine, along with PIB, RSTV is a good way to revise the monthly Current Affairs
