if I fill my board name wrong in application form
To be very honest it may cause some trouble but if you have reported to your institute as early as possible then it is modifiable.
Hope you have got some burden off !
how many months current affairs are asked in PU BA LLB entrance of exam?
You should go as back atleast 1-2 years of General Awareness and Current Affairs section. It is always better to read newspaper for CURRENT G.K. than trying to grasp all info at once. Some of the newspaper sources which you can use to prepare this section are The Hindu, Financial Express, and The Economist.
In case, you dont like reading newspaper daily, you can go with Manorama Yearbook or Current Affairs Yearly by Arihant for General Knowledge which is published every year.
In order to prepare for STATIC G.K. section, you need to broaden your overall scope in following sections: Sports, Politics, Entertainment, Biographies, etc. So, for this, you can use Static General Knowledge by A.P. Bhardwaj and S. Chands Advanced Objective General Knowledge. These books are okay to start with if you are not someone with a newspaper reading habit from the past.
