Current Affairs

Current affairs can be deemed as the single most important aspect of any civil service exam preparation strategy. Current affairs as a subject encompass the Current events of National and International importance. The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) expects its candidates to have an intricate understanding of the role these current events play in the functioning as well as the policy framing task of the government of India.

The awareness of current affairs is conventionally gained through extensive reading of major newspaper articles, Information from the Press Information Bureau (PIB), and certain important magazines. But transforming this mere awareness into knowledge involves making notes of these events and their developments, mapping them with the static subject knowledge, and correlating them with the functioning of the government. This prepares the candidates to tackle any questions involving current affairs at all stages of the examination ranging from MCQ in the preliminary examinations to citing these developments as case studies inappropriate Main Examination answers.

So the topic of current affairs is mandatory for all civil service aspirants but the strategy with which we approach it is multi-faceted.

I am a mother of a 2 year old child and I live in Madurai. I attended Unakkul Oru IAS event conducted by KingMakers IAS Academy in March 2018 and felt very inspired to start my UPSC Preparation. However I wasn't in a position to travel to Chennai for the classes. Fortunately, I received a notification about the commencement of a new batch for the online version of the Intensive UPSC Program. I immediately registered for the online regular batch. I was assigned a mentor with whom regular one-one assessment sessions were scheduled. I took up my daily tests and weekly tests. I shared the scanned version of my answer papers and received timely feedback and recommendations on how I could improve with my presentation. Although I was on an online mode of training, I always felt being in a live classroom. I am about to appear for my Prelims exam this year and I feel very confident after having taken this program. Thanks to KingMakers for all the help and continuous support that they are providing even after the completion of the program.

I started my UPSC preparation with integrated program at KingMakers IAS academy stwhen I joined my 1 year of college. I have been regularly attending the weekend classes since then and now I am rdcurrently in my 3 year of college. What I like about the program is the scheduling of the classes, adherence to the schedule and individual attention that is given to each one of us. The entire syllabus was covered in the first year and I had gone through a revision phase with writing nd practice in the 2 year. I am currently undergoing written tests and individual assessment every weekend to prepare me for the Prelims exam next year. I am very confident of clearing my exams in the st1 attempt with the continuous guidance of my mentors at KingMakers. Thanks to the entire team of KingMakers IAS Academy.
