Hello friends,

We hope that you are healthy, full with energy and motivation, and working sincerely to achieve your goal.

Time and again we have mentioned the importance of ‘Current Affairs’ in both prelims and mains examination. As prelims is approaching we want you to have as much practice of Current Affairs questions as possible so that you get accustomed to different dimensions on how a question can be asked from a topic. To provide you this practice we are starting a new initiative at IASbaba-“The Daily Prelims Quiz”.

Every working day (MondayFriday), five quality questions will be posted on the site. They will be accessible to everyone. Through this we will try to cover almost all important current events from last October 2015. We hope that you will be regular and take maximum benefit out of it.

“Remember our 60 day plan”

In out of 100 questions more than 44 came in prelims paper.. That is our hit ratio.

This is another step in that direction. 

Remember, everyone having a sword does not become a warrior. Knowledge of concepts is a different thing and how to use, apply them is a totally different thing. Many candidates have brilliant knowledge but fall short on the second front. That can only be learnt through continuous practice. So be consistent till you succeed. Like we always say –“Karne se Hota hai”.

Let’s sail towards victory together.

All the best.
