Current Affairs

This remains a nightmare for civil services aspirants owing to its dynamic nature. The ever-changing current affairs prove to be thought for most of the aspirants. We have designed our course in such a manner where the static modules are also linked with current affairs. GS is interdisciplinary and we follow a holistic method of teaching.

There is no clear tendency for UPSC to ask questions from current events. Its volatile essence can be noticed by the paper of last year, in which many fundamental questions have been drawn from current events.
