The nature of IAS examination is to test the candidate s awareness about the happenings around him/her. It a is test of alertness and awareness and not just knowledge! Students need to be updated on all current issues – regional, national or international. He/She should have sufficient knowledge of current issues which is tested by UPSC at all stages (Prelims, Mains and Interview).
The importance of current affairs is immense. Since 2017, we have proved ourselves to attempt the tricky questions of UPSC through our current affairs and test series programme. Click the below link to know more.
Be it a question from economics or from polity, it seems UPSC is taking more cautious efforts to link the subject to a current topic. So it is very important for us to know what the term current affairs really mean from UPSC’s point of view and also a thorough analysis of the previous year question papers.
What could be the logic behind such a dramatic shift in the pattern of question papers? Broadly speaking this shift in the pattern explains the intent of UPSC, which is in the quest to find the finest minds to govern the country. However, for the quest to be fruitful it would be appropriate from the part of UPSC to examine the candidate’s awareness about the society in which he is living. Static knowledge would prove inefficient for such an analysis. Society is dynamic and are subjected to changes. A Civil Servant should have the skills of a barrister and also that of a diplomat in order to cope with the changing society and also show the cognitive skills to coordinate, mobilize arguments and achieve consensus in regard to the execution of his duty. This analytical nature of the duty demands the aspirants to have an analytical mind and awareness of the society. This awareness can be imparted only through a broad reading which is beyond the textbook knowledge.
Realizing its significance we treat of current affairs as a separate subject, as its relevance is more than 50% of the civil services syllabus.
