ClearIAS Current Affairs Capsules (CCCs): What’s special about those?
CCCs are PDFs of MCQs released by ClearIAS on a monthly basis. This compilation consists of current-affairs-based questions sourced mainly from government resources like PIB, NewsOnAir, DDnews etc.
Important Current Events covered via MCQs – ClearIAS Current Affairs Capsules (CCC) cover almost all important questions (MCQs) based on the Current Affairs for each month. This helps aspirants save a lot of time browsing multiple resources.
Only 50 MCQs Each Month – We hand-pick only about 50 questions for each month, making it very easy for aspirants to learn and revise. Over, a span of 1 year (ie. 12 months), you would get around 600 MCQs. We have about 5 years of CCC available in the ClearIAS store for reference of important back issues.
Quick Learning – As we provide Current Affairs in an MCQ format (with reference links), it makes learning interesting and faster.
High chance of similar questions in UPSC Prelims – You may get many questions in actual UPSC Prelims from the CCCs, CMPPQs, ClearIAS Prelims Marks Booster Program and ClearIAS Prelims Test Series – directly or indirectly.
Useful for Prelims (mains and interview) – Though CCCs are designed for Prelims, the Learning Zone in the PDFs is equally useful for UPSC Mains and Interview as well.
Downloaded by Toppers – Many UPSC top rankers are regular users of CCCs.
