About IE Articles

  • This initiative started in August 2018 onwards.
  • IE Articles are like NCERTs of key current affairs issues.
  • It will give you a strong foundation of important current affairs topics through big-picture analysis.
  • They are prepared by analyzing at least 3-4 years of news from major news sources like The Hindu, Indian Express, Downtoearth, etc. It is because UPSC no longer asks questions from the last one-year news only + it requires candidates to have in-depth knowledge of important issues. So IE article is an initiative to satisfy this demand of UPSC.
  • Relevant links to other articles are also provided so that you will get a big-picture of issues surrounding a particular topic.
  • IE Articles will be useful to solve analytical/in-depth questions in Prelims.
  • It will be useful to solve almost all questions in Mains (Essay and General Studies).
  • It will be useful for writing excellent answers in mains (essay & GS).
  • Articles are written in a notes-based format with a question-answer-based arrangement = you can easily recall concepts in the exam/interview.
  • Mindmaps are provided for easy understanding and faster revision before the exam.
  • So regular reading and revising IE articles would be a game-changer in your UPSC preparation journey.
  • Please note that we only post one/two articles per week on important issues but with more quality and in-depth analysis. Because quality is more important than quantity in this exam.
  • We hope this initiative helps you crack the exam. All the best!!
