IAS Current Affairs

by Manish H. we make you better
IAS current affairs refer to the important national and international events which are relevant from the Civil Services Examination point of view. Current Affairs is very much important for the preparation of the Civil Services Exam. We treat it a separate subject because of its significant importance as its relevance is more than 50% of the civil services exam syllabus.

Current Affairs is the foundation of the UPSC exam for the IAS aspirants. An IAS aspirant is expected to have in-depth knowledge of all the relevant current affairs issues and topics. Aspirants must be aware of every issue that catches the headline. We regularly update analytical current affairs on our page to keep you updated with all the important national and international events going on.

With the pattern change in the UPSC IAS exam, questions related to current events and news play a major role in deciding the fate of students. Broadly, the type of questions can be divided into 2 categories- static and dynamic.

The Static category refers to the section of the IAS exam that does not change. E.g.: The Revolt of 1857, physical features of India, etc. whereas the Dynamic category refers to the UPSC current affairs. The best strategy to cover UPSC's current affairs is the daily newspaper and some credible sources like the Press Information Bureau (PIB) and Yojana Magazine. The IAS current affairs have subjects like history, geography, economy, polity, science, and technology,
etc. Candidates should remain updated on national as well as international happenings. In fact, as per the recent trends, the static and dynamic portions of the UPSC syllabus have changed significantly. The probability of unexpected questions from the static portion of the syllabus is quite high.

Current Affairs of UPSC includes the daily Comprehensive News Analysis (CAN), the daily Press Information Bureau (PIB) articles, all major issues featuring in the news, analysis of important articles, weekly current affairs, daily current affairs, events and news happened in history, etc. These are the majorly involved topics in IAS's current affairs. The most important thing is to segregate the topics in news as per the IAS exam syllabus. The current affairs for UPSC Prelims are still somewhat easier as there is one GS paper but arranging current affairs notes for IAS
Mains is truly challenging because of the comprehensive and descriptive question paper. Newspapers are a great source for daily current affairs. Magazines like Yojana, Kurukshetra is also a good way to serve the purpose.

While reading from newspapers, the first thing is to decide which newspaper you must read and The Hindu is one of the most renowned newspapers in the country followed by IAS aspirants for their exam preparation. It is most relevant and useful for the IAS exam preparation. Indian Express newspaper is also a good source of content for the study. The Front page, National News section, Economy News section, International News section, Editorial section, etc. are the sections of the newspapers to be focused while studying.

Aspirants feel challenge while deciding what news items to read and what to avoid while doing the preparation. This is where the guidance of the experts is needed. So here we are with these few tips which will help you practice better and score better!
