The current events are made part of the syllabus as they improve students' analytical and logical thinking by exposing them to a variety of social, economic, and national issues. It boosts students' confidence in answering comparable questions in interviews. The UPSC interview process evaluates not just a candidate's education, but also his ability to deal with real-life situations through innovative thinking and understanding of current events.
