GENERAL KNOWLEDGE / ETHICS /ART & CULTURE
The General Knowledge Test in competitive recruitment and admission tests mostly consists of MCQs (Multiple Choice Questions) on history, polity, geography, sports, business, economy, general knowledge about India, general knowledge of science, books, prizes etc. A general knowledge of India would include basic facts about geography, population, culture, customs, dances, festivals, organizations and institutions in India. Some general knowledge tests may focus only on Business and Economy as in MBA admission tests. A general knowledge exam is supposed to be pretty “general” but given the reality, it is hardly “general” in nature and warrants a specialized, focused study.
