Benefits of Preparing Daily Current Affairs

Focussing on daily, weekly and monthly current affairs keeps aspirants well-informed about the social, economic and political development across the globe. Given below are the other key benefits of emphasising on current affairs while preparing for the IAS Exam:

  • Based on the progress or growth in different fields like environment, ecology, science and technology, art and culture, polity, etc., questions are asked in the UPSC Prelims exam. Since this phase acts as a qualifier, current affairs can be one of the most scoring parts of the paper. Also, the comprehension asked in the CSAT paper is generally based on the latest events or news
  • Having an understanding of not just the latest event but also its background and history can help candidates write a more comprehensive and statistically appropriate answer in the UPSC Mains exam. Questions asked are mostly from the current events that have been in news recently
  • The IAS Interview questions may also constitute the candidate’s opinion of any latest news that concerns their optional or specialisation subjects. Therefore, to qualify for all three stages of the UPSC exam, current affairs play a very crucial role 
  • One of the key responsibilities of an IAS Officer is the implementation and monitoring of various state and central schemes and initiatives. By staying updated with the latest current affairs, candidates can acquaint themselves with the government schemes in India and how they can be used for the benefit of the people of the country.
