Hyderabad: Current Affairs plays a very crucial role in the preparation of any kind of competitive exams. So, it is imperative for job aspirants preparing for the TSPSC exams to focus on events around us that may have an impact on the society, region, country or the world as a whole.

It can be any current event at national and/ or international level — for example, Ukraine-Russia war and its impact on the world. Current Affairs can be anything from general studies (which is different from subject-specific studies), to general awareness and general knowledge.

Since current affairs is a dynamic topic, simply collecting bits of information with a view to answer multiple choice questions will not help in either grasping the topic as a whole or understanding the overall picture of the event. For example, rise in petrol price — it can be looked at in multiple ways 1) economic impact 2) impact on other aspects of life 3) electrical cars as an alternative solution — which also helps the environment, reduction in pollution, etc.

Besides national and international events, it’s good to have information handy on news-makers, important days/dates, sports personalities/events, awards and recognition’s, science and technology, economy-related topics, etc.

Reading a local/regional and a national newspaper to keep track of latest updates and developments on a daily basis will help students, who are attempting competitive exams, in a major way. Publications like Competition Success Review monthly magazine (and the year book), and Manorama Year Book for the current year will also be useful.
