(8 customer reviews)

UPSC Preliminary Examination frequently requested questions about the geographical locations of newsworthy locales. National and international locations that have come up in recent events are critical for IAS Exam hopefuls.

To familiarize yourself with the types of questions that may be asked about such locations in the news, consider the following question from the 2020 prelims:

Siachen Glacier is located east of Aksai Chin and east of Leh. It is also located north of Gilgit and north of Nubra Valley.


Current Affairs [2020-2021]

As foreign geography is also included in the UPSC Syllabus, the majority of questions based on it relate to locations mentioned in the news.

• Every year one can expect 5-6 direct map based questions and a few more
indirect questions.
• Therefore, it is safe to assume that about 10-12 marks of GS Prelims Paper I is asked from this section.
