GK Questions in Different Tests


 GK Questions in Different Tests

General Knowledge is variously labeled as General Awareness, Environmental Sensitivity or General Studies in different tests. Regardless of the label, General Knowledge questions are an integral part of most competitive exams for recruitment to government and bank jobs in India. Many admission tests for MBA, Hotel Management, Law and other professional courses feature a good number of GK questions. Over the years, the pattern and the difficulty level of such General Knowledge questions has changed a lot. The pattern of GK questions varies from test to test but we can certainly take out some common elements to form a general idea about GK questions and answers.


Most recruitment and admission tests in India cover at least some or all of the following topics in their GK questions:

1.    Static GK Questions are mainly based on

Indian History, Indian Political System and the Constitution, Everyday Science, Physical and Economic Geography, Economy Terms, Books and Authors, Culture, Festivals, Miscellaneous Issues

2.    Current Affairs GK Questions primarily cover

Political developments, Scientific developments, Sports events, Prizes,  Honors, Visits, New plans and programmes, Wars, Disasters, Elections, Treaties, Reports and Surveys, Committees, Budget etc.

3.    Economy and Business GK questions are based on

Policy developments, Banking sector, Companies and Products, Appointments, New product launches, Technological developments, Collaborations, Mergers and acquisitions, Stock Markets, Economic terms etc.

Most recruitment tests like those conducted by the Staff Selection Commission or the Institute of Banking Personnel Selection focus on Static GK questions and Current Affairs GK questions. The CWE (Common Written Examination) conducted by the IBPS (Institute of Banking Personnel Selection) for Probationary Officers and Clerical Cadre does include some questions on the banking sector and economy in general. But Economy and Business GK questions are mainly found in MBA admission tests like the SNAP, IRMA, XAT, CMAT, MAT etc.
