Dear Friends,

We are releasing the tentative list of topics to be covered in the Current Affairs Classes for Mains 2018.

This list is likley to be augmented. Rest assured that coverage of content will be such that you will not need a single other reference source for these topics.

Few things that we shall be doing here is :

  • The topics will be covered with a 360 degree approach . All dimensions will be covered. No prior knowledge of the topic will be necessary.
  • Content of the classroom will differ from the common sources so that your answers are richer in quality.
  • Those of you who are continuously studying, we recommend that you just attend the classes , and hear the lectures. You will end up remembering a lot for the exam.
