The role of Current Affairs has been vital in competitive Examinations like Banking, SSC, State PCS and various other Examinations. In UPSC CSE, Current Affairs Plays an important role in all stages of the Examination whether it is Preliminary, Mains & Interview.

If someone has opted for optional as Political Science, or Public Administration then better Preparation of Current Affairs can help them in fetching better marks in optional as well.

Time Management & Time allocation for Current Affairs:


Daily Current Affairs:

 It would be better if someone allocates some time exclusively for Current Affairs Quiz on a daily basis or Today’s Current Affairs. Now Question will come in Mind, how much time should I allocate for it?


Here is the Answer.

 The time may vary from one student to other depending on their reading skills, their optional subjects and some other factors.

If someone has opted for optional like Pub Ad, Pol. Science then allocating 2 Hrs. on a daily basis for Current Affairs will not be a bad idea.

However, for Students who have opted for Engineering Subjects, Mathematics etc. then they may allocate less than 2 Hrs.

 So, one may Plan for Daily Current Affairs followed by weekly & monthly revisions. Monthly revisions of the current Affairs can be done through Current Affairs Magazines.

 One may refer to the mentioned link of GS SCORE to access daily Current Affairs topics wise under different subjects. Students can take advantage and filter daily current affairs subject-wise.


 Weekly Current Affairs

 Any issue in News continues for 3-4 days for Example Prime Minister of India visiting any Foreign Country. All the major Memorandum of Understanding signed between the two countries that are of mutual interest and of national interest are important for IAS Exams. These


important MOUs are not signed in a day. There is some Process, and several rounds of meetings are held before signing such deals. So, if someone goes through the weekly news then all these important events are covered

News Paper:

CSE Aspirants prefer to read HINDU, INDIAN EXPRESS in their early stage of Preparations  ( during Prelims & Mains ). However, for Interviews, they may read the above-mentioned News Paper or some other Newspaper like the Times of India or other general Newspapers.
