The Most Important Habit Of An Aspirant

How To Improve Your Reading Ability


Reading of newspapers is good, useful, and is all that is important to participate in any competitive exam these days. It is almost the first thing that greets you in the morning. You read what is happening around the globe and for a while get out of the narrow circle of your personal affairs. So much is happening every day that unless you keep yourself abreast of these changes you cannot adjust yourself to them or tackle the GA section of any exam smoothly and easily.

A modern newspaper is a chronicle and an encyclopedia in miniature. The events that happen around the world are recorded in a newspaper. It seeks not only to inform but to interest, to stimulate, and to excite. A busy person hardly gets the time to read everything that it contains. This is why, to save your precious time, we provide you with an alternative that is our “Daily GK Update” (Available in both Hindi and English languages) that contains only the news that is important from the point of view of competitive examinations. It contains all the news that is likely to be asked in the examinations, be it a Banking Exam or SSC examination. This way you can keep updated with all the important news without wasting much of your time on reading not so important news or searching for the news that is important for upcoming examinations. The pattern of GS Section asked in SSC CGL too has dramatically changed from 2016, when the number of questions from Current topics was greater than usual. Reading a newspaper on a daily basis makes an aspirant fit to participate usefully in any competitive exam. Avoid the habit of ignoring everyday news telling yourself that you will do it in the end when the examinations are close, you only end up lying crushed under a pile of news.

It is necessary to have a basic knowledge of history and geography, or political and economic theories. Unless one knows the historical background or the geographical location of events reported, they will convey little of value of importance. In short, one must bring to the reading of newspapers an educated mind, an informed judgment, and an essentially critical understanding, if they are to serve any purpose. A cursory glance at newspapers wouldn’t help you do anything but mere entertaining gossips. Apart from the GA Section, an excellent knowledge of current news also helps you deal with the GDPI (Group Discussion and Personal Interview) more efficiently so you do not give a mumble jumble answer to the interviewee's simple questions. You do not get to see four or five options while participating in a group discussion or facing an interview, remember that.

Your vocabulary and English skills can also be improved if you maintain reading newspapers on a regular basis. We also provide you with The Hindu Editorial Vocabulary where we select a few sentences and mark down the unfamiliar words and write down their meanings. You too can follow the same method and improve your vocabulary along with general knowledge that newspaper provides you with. So students, we hope now you know how important it is for you to read newspapers on a daily/regular basis. Reading newspaper is of high importance and indispensable. A critical and independent readership alone can bring the reader to heel.
