Many times, students ask about the strategy to follow while learning this kind of static GK. Of course, there are a lot of tricks to remember some of the names. But these strategies are a waste when we sit in the Exam. The best thing we have learned over the years that the examiners focus on the static GK which has something to do with the recent happenings. For example, if someone has recently received the Noble Prize in Peace, then you may find questions in exams such as Who was the first to get the Noble prize? or When did the prize distribution started?, which forms the part of the Static General Knowledge. So, as an advice, the best thing is to learn current affairs by relating them with their History.
