Tips/Hacks to ace Current Affairs of RRB NTPC

  • Read Newspaper(s):

    To keep oneself aware of what’s happening on a day-to-day basis, there is no substitute to reading newspapers (The Hindu, The Indian Express, etc.) on a daily basis. It not only keeps one updated with the current happenings but also reduces the burden of cramming current affairs of 6 months to a year all at once.

  • Prepare Notes:

    Reading newspapers can only help if one prepares notes out of them on a daily basis. Make notes of important points that you come across via newspapers, current affairs magazines, or for a matter of fact any other relevant source. It helps one memorize and revise current affairs as a whole in a better way and in less amount of time.

  • Attempt Mock Tests:

    Any preparation is incomplete without the final leg/round of assessing oneself via mock tests. They not only help you with new information/current affairs which you might have skipped or haven’t come across at all while reading newspapers/magazines but also help in assessing yourself among your competitors for a bird’s eye view on the exam. So attempt a daily sectional GA test and weekly full-length mock test to analyze your performance in a better way.
