Exam candidates often struggle to perform well in these sections due to a lack of training. They do not keep up to date with current events and news. Students who do well in other parts also struggle with current events because they do not have a proper study plan. Here are a few pointers to help you get through this part.

Art and culture, industry, the economy, celebrities, Indian and international politics, sports and records, honors, and awards are all topics covered in current events.

The pattern of Questions and Marks Allocated
Knowing which news to collect, memorize, and revise during your planning is the key. Only when the exact pattern of questions and the marks allocated are understood can a candidate properly complete this segment.
There are 17 questions about current events among the 30 questions asked in the general awareness segment, each worth two points. The penalty for a wrong answer is 0.5 points or one-fourth of the total marks given to the answer.
You should not guess haphazardly if you want to avoid receiving a negative score. Make sure you're confident about the answer, or at the very least, that you can rule out two of the choices.

Tips for Exam Day Preparation
The general knowledge segment should be given about 10 minutes since most of the questions need direct answers. Attempting this section first, with adequate planning, will help you score well and boost your morale as you attend the other sections.
Concentrating on the news events of the previous six months is important for current affairs information. For four months before the exam date, more detailed learning about events is needed.

Examine the current-events alerts and regular quizzes available online or through Android phone apps.
Make a list of the events that you believe are significant. Maintaining notes can assist you in revising before exams and in memorizing dates, important names, and other details.
You should plan accordingly because the current affairs query pattern varies depending on the competitive test. For bank exams, you should be more informed about business, economics, and banking news and events.

Another important resource for increasing your current accounts awareness is the Internet. Keep informed by using Wikipedia, YouTube, and Google. The constant current affairs coverage that social networking sites include is also extremely beneficial. This occurs when you sign up for or follow similar accounts on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, and others.
To improve your ranking, concentrate on your strong areas. Practice and mock assessments have an impact on your grades, allowing you to boost your performance significantly during the exam.
