What is the role of current affairs in UPSC preparation?

Current affairs play a crucial role in UPSC preparation as they are an integral part of
both the Preliminary and Mains stages of the examination. In the Preliminary Examination,
a significant portion of questions is related to current events, including national and
international news, government schemes, policies, and developments in various sectors.
For the Mains Examination, candidates are often required to answer essay questions or
provide viewpoints based on contemporary issues. Moreover, current affairs hold
importance during the Personality Test as well, as candidates are expected to be wellinformed about recent happenings and their implications on governance and society.
Staying updated with current affairs not only helps in answering questions accurately but
also enhances the overall understanding of the issues faced by the nation.
