#5: International Affairs (IA)


For CDS, CAPF, IBPS= international-affairs is a common topic. Even at interview stage, you might come across questions from here. The Cost: benefit is quite good, if you focus on the right areas. Although IA+Polity current had less questions than Misc.GK in previous IBPS PO Exams, but I put them at higher place in this priority order. Why? 1. The cost: benefit of IA+Polity current is higher than Misc.GK (in terms of amount of data to be memorized, to solve one MCQ in the actual exam.) 2. Youll have to prepare current affairs related to IA+Polity for the interview anyways, while Misc.GK loses significance @interview stage. Reference source for IA 4. International Affairs section under any one Monthly current affairs magazine (PRatiyogita, CST etc) AND/OR 5. Monthly updates of Competitionmaster.com 6. +keep a habit of reading English newspaper on daily basis, itll help you in reading comprehension, general awareness and interview. Areas to focus?
