The preliminary stage of Civil Services exam consists of two papers i.e. General Studies Paper I and GS Paper II (CSAT) of 200 marks each. Scoring good marks in GS Paper I is crucial for moving to the next stage of Civil Services (Main) examination, thus coming closer to a goal of becoming a civil servant. GS Paper II is of qualifying nature in which a candidate need to score just 33% marks. Therefore, GS Paper I emerged as the only gateway to Main examination. This underscores the importance of studying and preparing for GS Paper I with utmost seriousness and dedication.
The syllabus of GS Paper I includes Current Events of National and International Importance, History of India, World and Indian Geography, Indian Economy, Indian Polity and Governance, Environment and Ecology, General Science, and associated issues. Analysis of previous two years paper point towards importance of current affairs, as majority of the questions asked are related to ongoing issues and not from static portion of the syllabus such as standard books e.g. polity book, history book etc.
So, in order to qualify cut-off marks it is imperative for aspirants’ to read current affairs and analyze them thoroughly, besides reading static syllabus from books. For this, it is suggested to read any one national newspaper thoroughly along with preparing notes for future references and revisions purposes. In addition to this, it is also recommended to read standard magazine on current affairs to cover all issue and events comprehensively without leaving any scope for omissions, as even single question can cost you your dream.
To ease out tension of aspirants of how to cover sea like current affairs, we advise you to follow Civil Services Chronicle (CSC) Magazine which has consistently stand out as the most trusted brand for this exam preparation since 1990. The magazine has this year again reignited its past glory of keeping with the trend of solving the puzzle known as UPSC.
