How to prepare Current Affairs notes?


How to read news paper
Whenever we start our preparation for CS, we consider a main work in this regard.Obviously it is Reading News paper. when i started preparation 3 years ago, the painfull work to me was reading news papers. but, gradually i came to know that reading news papers is an interesting work in the preparation. I felt it because of my gradual improvement in both my optionals and GS. I made interesting to read news papers through creative approach to it. I would like to share my ideas in this regards.

generaly we used to read Hindu paper.
1.It is enough to read hindu paper daily without break.
2.Otherwise, economic times can be used in the period of Budget session or any other important economic issues.

Reading Hindu

1.Before going to take notes, you have to keep 5 hand (normal) size note books and one file(tag file)
2.Give headings to those note books as follows.,
iii.general knowledge
iv.News events regarding Optional 1
v.News events regarding Optional 2
vi.Articles regarding GS,optional -1, and optional-2.(to be attached in tag file)
3.If you read anything about science,geography or economics regarding international issues, then just put those information in the international part.
4.same to be followed in National part also. general knowledge section, put the information which is always factual and never be changed further.
6.In optional parts,
--read the entire articles or news in full
-- try to analyse with your text books you are reccommanded.
--Make analysed notes in your own idea with the help of text books.
7.If you find any good articles in Editorials then just cut it and add into the tag files. it will be usefull for both your mains and interview(even prelims).actually the editorials will help us to look a balanced view in a topic in mains and interview.
8.very important-- ensure that you are reading and taking notes of important news but not spam news. Try to find out what are important and not.
9.try to link the current news with one another news like GS,optional1 or optional2.
10.try to use different 6 colours to the 6 note books.
11.keep a card like small paper in your pocket in which you should have note down the famous and important personalities,important events you taken from news papers in brief. frequently look on that card.
12.when ever you read optionals, just see the notes you have already taken from the news paper.
13.ensure your notes with various magazines like yojana,kurukshetra,India today,frontline,wizard ect., ect.,
14.when you try to remember the information, just try to imagine the colour you used to that particular note book.

Uses of this approach

1.your IQ is improved get the ability of creative approach is easy to review when ever you need some information about current affairs
4.It will not be painfull at the final day preparation of prelims.
5.a clear picture of current affairs come to your mind, because every news are clearly segmented through the 6 note books.
6.easy to refer
7.current affairs part of optional sujects is now easy to handle.
8.we get an idea and able to predict about, what would be asked in mains and interviews.
9.your confident level will increased.

I hope these small approach will help you to do well with NEWS PAPERS

Good Luck ALL
