The Importance of Knowing Current Affairs in School

School is a Gala time for many and most of us prefer enjoying it with our friends rather than concentrating on developing our skills. We give Prime importance to our course studies and do not find time to learn anything apart from the core studies unless someone has a real passion. 

current affairs are showing not something that is included in our course study in the higher classes of 10 to 12. Even though some of us might have had the subject of general knowledge in class 6 or 7, it must be remembered that the general knowledge that we learn is nothing related to current affairs. Most of it is static knowledge and has no contributions to make in our life, making us more aware about things.

 The importance of current affairs in our school days mostly between classes 10 to 12 cannot be described in this short article nor can a lecture on the same motivate a student. We might have faced our parents telling us to attend a few minutes of the news channels rather than YouTube.  It can only be realized by a student when the college entrance examination approaches. Almost all the college entrance examinations except for the hardcore science examinations like the IIT-JEE and NEET do not have general knowledge. As a matter of fact, the AIIMS examination which has now been combined with the NEET did have 15 marks of general knowledge previously.


Being in school and paying a lot of attention to general knowledge makes one eligible for debates, group discussions, panel discussions, quiz competitions etc. All of these competitions are such which are not attempted by students because of lack of confidence. Further, when one is in college, a popular student is not known because of only his academics. Such is the case only in schools but once one is in college, one is known for one’s dynamism and co-curricular activities widely. Having a hunger for knowledge in current affairs not just enables one to participate in a wide variety of events in college but also strengthens one to attempt mega examinations like the UPSC, CLAT PG, CDS and the UGC NET.

The icing on the cake is that one might be in any field of career but this quality enables one to take part in the entrance examinations of premium colleges in journalism like Jamia Millia Islamia, Delhi University or the Aligarh Muslim University to pursue a masters in mass communication. Being an adult is difficult. Adults are no more dependent on their parents. One has to stand on one’s own feet. For this, one needs to be aware about the field of his/her career to avail better opportunities and have speedy progress. Understanding government policies at the same time gives a better understanding to one to avail amenities by the government.
