About Current Affairs & GK PYQs

We’ve included all the questions which couldn’t be listed in any other topic, under this title. Thus, this is the only part of UPSC which is truly unpredictable and is purely current affairs based.

But the good news is, only 8-10 such questions are asked on average. Further, for first three topics i.e. A) Defence, B) Nuclear Weapons and Treaties & C) International organizations, reports, rankings, treaties, etc. you can get a good study material and study for them.

Thus, it leaves us only with 5-6 questions which will out of syllabus. We would recommend just to leave them & focus on rest 95 questions for which a detailed subject wise, topic wise and sub topic wise analysis is available and is presented herein.
