How to Prepare Current Affairs for Civil Services Exam ?


How to Prepare Current Affairs for Civil Services Exam?

Current affairs to the civil services exam is what the backbone is to the human body. Just as without a backbone, our body shall not get the support to stand erect, without current affairs, civil services preparation shall come crumbling on the ground.

If there is one thing that defines civil services exam, it is current affairs. And if there is one thing that needs top priority, it is again, current affairs.

To state a simple fact, current affairs accounts for almost sixty percent of the GS syllabus. If we take an extended view, the current affairs count even in optional papers such as Political Science, Sociology, Public Administration Geography etc.

The second paper of these optional are applied aspects of the subject with special bearing for India. And unless one knows the current developments related to the topics of these optional papers, it will be impossible to write an effective, relevant answer.

Thus, one can safely say that current affairs is an all-pervasive phenomenon in civil services exam and no one can get away from this reality. Sadly, few understand the importance of current affairs in this exam.

Even those who are aware of its importance are at a loss to understand as to how to handle it. It results in poor preparation, poor marks, and frustration among the aspirants. Therefore, a true understanding of the value and significance of current affairs is the key to success in the civil services exam.

This article briefly summarises current affairs in all its aspects to navigate the path of preparation for the aspirants who lack direction and purpose while attempting to cover current affairs part.

How to Prepare Current Affairs for Civil Services Exam?

Why current affairs in civil services exam?

As we all know, civil services exam is a process to select generalists and not specialists in various administrative jobs. It follows from this that a candidate must demonstrate a good knowledge of the issues and events that have social, economic, political and administrative implications. For a career in civil services, knowledge of issues of current relevance is important to make informed decisions.

Macaulay, who introduced the merit-based civil services under the Charter Act 1853, said :" Knowledge is transferrable" By this what he meant was that if a candidate has a wide knowledge of diverse subjects, it will translate into his capacity to govern better. In other words, a civil servant, with a wide knowledge base is better equipped to discharge his duties in order to meet the broader administrative goals as also to act in the larger public interest. Thus, the goal of wider knowledge as advocated by Macaulay can be achieved by a good comprehension of current affairs which is made up of a very wide, diverse range of topics reported in newspapers, journals, websites and electronic media.

In this tutorial we will discuss about use of prepositions in the various sentence. Watch the VIDEO carefully as well as read the complete article to understand the concepts.

What is Prepositional Phrases: “A preposition is the kind of word that introduces the so-called invariable prepositional phrase. Prepositions usually have the function of introducing attachments, and sometimes ligand binding complements the name or noun phrase that immediately precedes a verb or other names as above. In some languages, prepositions cannot head a prepositional phrase, as in English where they can even appear at the end of the sentence.
Traditionally, grammar has been defined as the invariable part of speech that connects words denoting the relationship they have with each other.

    In That book / in the water

    at the museum
    in the museum

e) "At" is used when you mentioned where there was an event:
    This morning I visited the painting exposition at the National Museum
    Yesterday We Had dinner at the new Chinese restaurant

f) or with more open water, "at" next, "in": in
    at the river / in the river
    at the lake / in the lake
    at the swimming pool / in the swimming pool
    at the sea / in the sea

In many cases the same noun can use different prepositions although the meaning changes. FOR EXAMPLE:

Question tags with answers | Use of Question Tags Rules

Question tags with answers

Use of Question Tags Rules

Question tags are basically short questions which appear at the end of the sentences. When it comes to day to day speech or any kind of informal writing the use of question tags is very common. But the use of these tags is very uncommon in case of formal writing. Some of the examples of question tags are as follows:

It is very hot, isn’t it?
She sings well, doesn’t she?
Or if you want to put in another way you can say, She sings well, doesn’t she?

Question tags rules

Generally the trend is that in case of informal sentences the negative form is written in short which means instead of writing is not it we tend to write isn’t it. But this style of contraction can be used only in case of informal writings but in case of formal writings we should use the full form like, They said they would finish the work in six months, did they not?
If we had to write this same sentence in an informal tone we would have written it in the form: They said they would finish the work in six months, didn’t they?

The main purpose of using question tags is to find whether something which is said is true or not. The tags are also used to get some kind of agreement against the statement or in favor of the sentence.

The thumb rule of the use of question tags is that you use negation after an affirmative sentence and vice versa. And at the same time please remember that question tags are always used in case of negative and affirmative sentences and they are not used after questions.

Question tags with answers

It can be explained in a better manner with the help of the examples”

You are the new Chairman, aren’t you? (A correct usage)
You aren’t the new Chairman, are you? (A correct usage)
Are you the new Chairman, aren’t you? (An incorrect usage)
In case of affirmative sentences we are supposed to use negative tags.
She is a good girl, isn’t she? (And not “is she”)
It isn’t hot today, is it? (And not “isn’t it”)

Another Question Tags rule which you need to keep in mind is that if the main sentence has an auxiliary verb you are supposed to use the auxiliary in the question tag also.

Some of the examples are:
They are busy, aren’t they?
She is going, isn’t she?
They haven’t arrived, have they?

On the other hand if the main sentence does not have an auxiliary verb in that case the tag takes the various forms of the verb “do”.
You love fish, don’t you?
She came today, didn’t she?

Finally it can be concluded saying that question tags with answers are phrases which are added to the main part of the sentence. These question tags generally invite opinion from the listener. But the most important thing in these tags is that affirmative is followed by negative and vice versa. As you use the tag the verb always comes in front of the noun or the pronoun. That’s all about this Question Tags rule article. Time to time we will share more ENGLISH GRAMMAR TUTORIAL with you readers so subscribe us on Facebook @

Some Recent FAQ Related to the Government Jobs Asked By Students with Complete Answer

Some FAQ Related to the Government Jobs

Am I eligible for teaching job after BTech?
Question:1.I am a final year student of BTech from Phagwara. I want to go into teaching. I have heard that BTech students can give the NET to become a lecturer?

Some FAQ Related to the Government Jobs
Answer. The CSIR-UGC NET Exam for JRF & Lectureship is conducted by the CSIR in five areas: Chemical Sciences, Earth, Atmospheric, Ocean & Planetary Sciences, Life Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Physical Sciences. Yes, BS-4 years/ BE/BTech/ B.Pharma graduates are eligible to take the NET, apart from those with an MSc or equivalent degree/BS-MS/MBBS with minimum 55 per cent marks (5 per cent relaxation in marks for SC/ST/ OBC/ PwD). In case you wish to take the CSIR-UGC NET Exam to be held on December 16, 2018, you can apply under the “Results Awaited” (RA) category – provided you complete your degree within two years in order to avail of the Fellowship (JRF). However, if you only possess a Bachelor’s degree (BE/BTech/BPharma), you’re not eligible for lectureship. Incidentally, the IITs offer direct admission to PhD for meritorious BE/BTech students (1st divisioners).

But, as per current UGC norms, these PhD degree-holders are not eligible for the post of Assistant Professors in Indian universities although they’re qualified for the post at the IITs/NITs. Reason?

They don’t possess the mandatory master’s degree. This anomaly was finally addressed by the UGC in its recent meeting and is likely to be scrapped/amended. Incidentally, BSc (Hons) or equivalent degree-holders who are enrolled in Integrated MS-PhD programmes (with minimum 55% marks) can also apply. The age limit is 28 years for JRF (NET). There’s a 5-year relaxation in age limit for SC/ST/ /PwD/Women candidates and 3 yrs for OBC (creamy layer). The application deadline is October 15, 2018.

Data science course from govt agency?
Question:2. I have been working as a software developer in a small IT firm in Noida for the past five years after doing my MCA. I have been reading about Data Science and am very keen to learn something about it. But it is not possible for me to leave my job as I have family responsibilities. Nor can I spend a huge amount on fancy courses. What do you suggest?

Answer. For starters, if you can spare four (two-day) weekends, there’s an interesting Skill Development programme on Data Science & Machine Learning offered by the M/o Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME), Govt. of India, that you could check out. The technology Development Centre of MSME, Meerut would be your best bet. If you hurry, you could enroll for their first session which starts on October 6, in NOIDA (Sect 3) itself. Being a government initiative, the fee has been kept at Rs.25,000 (+GST). For details, log onto: .

There are several other courses in the market, including some good online ones that are offered via the MOOCS platform which you could check out. In fact, data scientists and front-end developers received the maximum salary hikes in 2017. Those with three to five years of experience fetched salaries ranging from Rs.25-29 lakh last year. Data scientists use computing systems to collect, analyse and interpret large quantities of data and information to help businesses (including startups) improve their operations and gain a competitive edge over their rivals. And in the wake of the AI (Artificial Intelligence) boom, many companies are looking to grow their Data Analytics teams.

Some Myths and Reality Related to the Civil Entrance Exam - You should know these Facts

Facts to Crack Civil Services Examination
Some Myths and Reality Related to the Civil Exam

Any aspirant of the civil services examination knows about the countless doubts and myths that accompany the many ‘sincere’ advises of people around. It is important to dispel the myths and take on the tough journey with confidence. Time to confront these with corresponding realities.
Facts to Crack Civil Services Examination

Myth: Many people said that there are too much political interference in the IAS and the IPS.
Reality: The decisions taken by IAS and IPS officers have immense impact on the common man. Any position that promises authority is bound to exercise some control as well. The more important the position, greater the control will be. However, most of us tend to believe that private sector offers a great degree of independence, which again is not true. The top positions in the private sector are also subject to control or interference in some form or the other.

Myth:Students who have excellent academic record can only crack civil services examination.
Reality: Intelligence is subjective. Can we call a student intelligent if he has consistently secured first division? Or can a student who scores 100 per cent in mathematics or physics in Class X be tagged as ‘intelligent’?
A survey conducted a few years back revealed that most of the successful candidates in civil services examination had secured only a second division in graduation, which led us to believe that a high academic score is a definite asset, but a second or third division is definitely not an impediment to attain success.

Myth: Some optionals have better prospects at the preliminary level.
Reality: Candidates have 23 optionals to choose from and each of them offers equal chances of success. UPSC follows the proportionate method of representation, which weigh every optional proportionally.

Myth: Every optional has a ‘cut-off’ mark. Hence, it is better to choose one with a low cut-off.
Reality: What do we understand by cut-off? Out of the 10,000 qualified candidates, marks scored by the last candidate mark the ‘cut-off.’ Thus, candidates who score more than the cut-off will qualify and those who don’t will not. In a competitive examination, a cut-off score changes from year to year and there is no qualifying score.

Myth: Questions asked in optional ‘X’ are difficult and perplexing. Hence, it is better to choose optional ‘Y’.
Reality: In a competitive exam, if the questions are difficult every aspirant will score less and automatically the cut-off marks will be low.

Myth: The general studies paper accounts for only 150 marks, on the other hand the optional paper is of 300 marks. Therefore general studies calls for more attention.
Reality: While it is true that more attention needs to be given to optional, preparation for general studies should not be neglected as well. Remember, every mark counts and a single mark determines success or failure.

Myth: The same subject for prelims and mains should not be chosen.
Reality: There is no rule of thumb that the same optional needs to be chosen both for prelims and mains exam, but it is advisable to stick to one subject. If different options are taken, it would lead to tragic waste of time.

Myth: When the same optional is picked up both for prelims and the mains exam, then it is not required to prepare separately for the preliminary examination. Preparation for the mains is sufficient.
Reality: The preliminary calls for a micro approach, whereas the mains require a broad perspective. Hence, even though 90 per cent of the preliminary syllabus is included in the mains, different methods of preparation are required.

Myth: In order to crack the civil services examination, an aspirant has to toil for at least 16 hours a day.
Reality: Successful candidates in CSE examination state that it is not the number of hours that is important, but the work that you put in those hours. We all have a span of attention and the preparation should be tailored accordingly. However, tall claims are made about 16 hours of extensive study, but weather it is humanly possible or not is still debatable.

Myth: Nobody can be sure of success in prelims until the results are announced, so it is better to set about preparation for the mains only after the prelims.
Reality: Like any other competitive exams, civil services examination also has a ‘chance’ factor. However, through a well-directed effort, an element of chance can be cut-down to a large extent. Preparation in the right direction steps up your chances of success in the examination to 90 per cent. However, mains exam is conducted three months after the declaration of prelims result. So, 90 days is ‘just not’ sufficient to prepare for two optional, an essay and a general studies paper.

Myth: The provisions of reservation are not applied at the preliminary examination
Reality: The provisions of reservations are applied at each stage of the examination; otherwise a proportional representation to the next stage is not possible.

 As you all have prepared according to the study plan, now it is the time for evaluation. Self evaluation is very important; if you will self evaluate yourself then only you will come to know your weak as well the strong points. Last 10 to 15 days are very crucial, in this period you should evaluate yourself by solving the previous year question papers and give a final touch to every topic, because if you will not give a review to the learnt topics then they will be washed away because most of the topics which you have not given a review fades away with the time. So it is good to give a fresh look to every topic and work on your weak points and strengthen your strong points.
In these crucial days just go through the SWOT Analysis. SWOT stands for (Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats). This will help you in building your self confidence which is a key to get the success in any field. Let us explain this strategy in brief.

S stands for Strengths:  go through the topics and evaluate yourself that in which topics you have a strong hand and prepare them well and make them an instrument for the fight.  Learn these topics on your fingers so that you can attempt such type of questions in the exam with full accuracy. In simple words you can say just work on your strengths.
 W stands for Weaknesses: work on the topics, in which you are weak, practice them more frequently and try to improve your command on these topics.
O stands for Opportunities:  utilize the opportunities at a right time, this means that the topics in which you have a strong hand try to attempt those in the exam with more accuracy and in less time. This will help in saving your time for the other questions.
T stands for Threats:  this means to say that stay away from the threats such as the negative marking threat. Focus on the quality of the answered questions not on the quantity. Try to attempt the maximum questions with accuracy. Leave the questions in which you have any doubt. Attempting the doubtful questions can ruin your dream of becoming a banker.
 Use these all strategies to achieve your goals. Best of luck students!!!
