The trend of current affairs questions asked in exams.Nowadays, in every exam, some marks are already decided for current affairs, meaning that it is given in the syllabus of the exam that the questions of national and international current affairs will be asked in the examination. By the way, no definite numbers are given about the total of these questions, then it goes on assuming that if there is a paper of 100 marks, which is in objective type, then 15 to 20 questions out of 100 can be asked from the current affair.
Now if I talk about the student, for preparing any exam, he/she start preparing on the basis of their respective syllabus. But in other subjects, it is possible to limit the syllabus to some extent. But if we talk about national and international current affairs then no syllabus can be given.
Not only this, many times any incident, which happened 2 years ago, is also asked in the exam with the current affair. Current affairs in general form mean the events that have happened around the world, last 6 months to 1 year. In case of some major incident, it may be one and a half years. But in many examinations, it is seen that there is no fixed pattern of current.
It has been seen many times that students work hard for current affairs more than the other subjects. Should some changes apply in the pattern of current affairs questions? Such as dividing them into further subsections. Or do you feel that the pattern which is followed till now, that is fine?
