Completeness: Ensure complete coverage of Current Affairs from PIB, Hindu, Indian Express, Times of India, and magazines such as EPW, Frontline. No issues will be left out.
Content Differentiation: Ensure that value addition beyond common sources is done so that there is content differentiation in answers written by our students vis-à-vis other candidates.
