The importance of Current Affairs and General Knowledge in the UPSC cannot be emphasized enough. An analysis of the previous years’ question papers shows that the number of questions related to current affairs has been on an upward trend. Questions are asked directly on current affairs and general knowledge related topics, or as part of subject related questions. In such a scenario, staying up to date on current affairs becomes imperative.
Reading the newspaper daily and religiously is the best way to keep up with the flow of current events. Also, various websites and blogs like ours provide Comprehensive News and Analysis as well as broad coverage of current affairs. You can follow these to catch up on current affairs relevant to UPSC Exam preparation. But with a lot of current affairs to cover, it becomes difficult to remember everything that is studied. Revision is the only key to remember and retain what has been studied.
There are a plethora of options to keep your preparation updated and revising your current affairs. One might take notes and refer to them periodically, or subscribe to a newsletter which gets archived, or best of all download an app that provides current affairs updates as well as helps revise earlier news which would be relevant to the UPSC Exam.
