The significance of Current Affairs in UPSC Civil Services examination preparation has grown substantially. It encompasses a considerable portion of both the preliminary and mains examinations.
- In the preliminary examination, Current Affairs extensively covers subjects such as S&T, Environment, and a substantial part of the Indian Economy, Indian Polity, and mapping.
- Likewise, in the mains examination, over 50% of the questions in GS2 and GS3, and around 30% of GS1, are regularly based on current affairs. Even in GS4, numerous case studies revolve around contemporary issues. Current Affairs also plays a crucial role in enhancing one’s performance in the essay paper and in the interview preparation.
Hence, it is evident that regularly reading and revising current affairs is vital for clearing this examination.
Considering these factors, LevelUp IAS is introducing the Pre-Cum Mains Current Affairs Program by Santosh Kumar Sir.
