Rajasthan Judiciary Subject-wise Preparation

Here are expert-curated tips for the Rajasthan Judiciary Mains examination. Make sure to follow them for the best result. 
Do attempt Rajasthan Judiciary Mock Tests to analyze preparation levels and know what type of questions can be asked.

Rajasthan Judiciary Mains Preparation Tips for Substantive Laws: Civil and Criminal Law

  • Your first focus should be on the primary laws i.e. Constitution, Case Laws Related To Indian Penal Code [IPC] , Evidence and CPC as the majority of questions are asked from these subjects, and after getting thoroughly familiar with these then focus on minor subjects i.e. Indian Contract Act, Specific Relief Act and Transfer of Property Act.
  • While preparing notes in your own language focus on Important Bare Acts, Commentaries and Leading Case Laws.
  • After studying all the subjects, start preparing from previous year exams and do as many mock tests as possible. Make sure you do not answer the questions subject-wise and do it in whole.
  • You should develop a habit of studying law primarily from Bare Acts. Take help of text/reference books to note down the essentials of legal provision and the leading cases, if any, for each essential. Read carefully the explanation and proviso attached to the main provision. Illustrations appended to the Sections are very important for clearly understanding the provision and exceptions, so never miss them. Simultaneously, try to memorize ‘which Section deals with what’, this is very important for cracking prelims. However, it may be a difficult task but it must be done at least for all the important provisions.
  • Prepare short notes on each important topic, outlining the relevant legal provisions, their content, main cases and exceptions. Try to keep it as concise as possible. These notes will prove to be the most useful tool for a quick revision during the entrance and main exams because as you browse through these short notes you will recall almost all the relevant information you have studied before. Failure to review the material before the exam seriously reduces your chances of making a choice.
  • Keep your syllabus and previous year question papers with you, and do research to understand how questions are asked. This will give you an idea of which area of study you need to focus more on. But at the same time, do not waste time guessing from your previous work what topics are most likely to be asked in the upcoming exam. The questions may or may not be repeated at the next exam.

Rajasthan Judiciary Mains Preparation Tips for the Language

The English language is one of the most manageable sections in the Rajasthan Judiciary Mains exam. The candidates who are preparing for the exam must consider following the tips given below for good marks.

  • Read Read and Read

Reading texts, journals, newspapers, and various other resources will help you better grasp the English language. This way, you can improve your chances of handling the questions put across well.

For Hindi Language, start reading newspapers not only in English but also in Hindi. As hindi is a common language many people may think of skipping any special preparation for it but that's where you make a mistake.
Practice translation of at least one article each day as it will increase your speed and accuracy.

  • Practice Previous Year Question Papers

One of the best ways to prepare for the English and Hindi language section is to go through the previous year’s question paper. You can determine the type of questions asked, level of difficulty, and much more.

  • Focus on writing skills

With reading and analyzing previous years’ question papers, it is also essential to test your writing skills every once to ensure that your preparations are on point.

  • Solve Question Banks

Ask the experts and successful entrants of the judicial services exam; they will all tell you to attempt questions from the previous year questions. Always take up mock tests and previous year’s questions for better judgment of your preparations.
