Newspaper reading and making notes is important for the preparation of Civil Services exam. The newspaper is filled up with current affairs topics that figures promptly in General Studies papers. The first rule while reading the newspaper is to avoid reading news on politics, sports, or entertainment. The second rule is to avoid making notes in the first reading. After having a first glance at the newspaper, you have to select the news for making the notes. While doing so, you have to look at the issues that make the news and our reasoning should be what the specific thing about this news is, why this news has appeared in today’s newspaper. What are the events leading up to this news? Is there any background of the news? After you have zeroed on the importance of the news, you can go ahead and take notes. While taking the notes do not go much into the technicalities of the news but write down key takeaway about the news.
Civil Service India wishes you best of luck...
