UPSC Current Affairs

Introduction

Current Affairs are those events that have a political or social significant effect at the current time. These events or series of events are collectively called Current Affairs. Current affairs can be viewed at the level of a single country or at the global level as International Current Affairs. A significant portion of marks in almost every competitive exam like UPSC, PSC, DRDO, SSC, RRB, NDA, etc. is covered through Current Affairs section.

While if we discuss about the topics or incidents which are relevant to the exams conducted by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) then we use the specific term ‘UPSC Current Affairs’. The only difference is that the scope of UPSC Current Affairs is quite vast as compared to the general current affairs. The questions can be put up by UPSC related to anything which is relevant to the context of the current affair event rather than direct questions about facts and figures.
