Read magazines that cover varied topics ranging from economy to business to trade policies to the latest awardees in the fields of sports, art, literature. In short, just be aware of all the topics because questions can come from anywhere.
Refer to past question papers and see the pattern of occurrence of the questions. That will give you an idea as to which topics to concentrate on.
