Interview of MPCJ 2018 Topper Ayushi Upadhyay

Judiciary Gold Faculty: Tell me about yourself

Ayushi: I cleared my 12th in 2013. Later I appeared for CLAT and got a seat in HNLU. I graduated from HNLU in 2018 and had few opportunities in corporate companies. I did internships in a corporate company and felt there was no job satisfaction. Later after discussing it with my friend, I decided to take up Judiciary as my career. 

Judiciary Gold Faculty: Corporate companies offer a great salary and have different work environments. But what was the reason for choosing Judiciary as your career?

Ayushi: One of my seniors worked in a corporate company for 6 years and later wanted to change the domain. Another senior worked in a corporate company under a lot of pressure, which was why I got into the Judiciary field. I was pursuing my internship wherein I continuously travelled 2 hours on a local train for one week and got up early in the morning. Later it was getting late in the night as well. This pricked me as I was worried about my physical and mental health. 

Judiciary Gold Faculty: Apart from Madhya Pradesh, were you targeting other Judiciaries?

Ayushi: I just targeted MPCJ because I wanted to stay with my family. I applied and focussed on clearing only Madhya Pradesh Judicial Services.

Judiciary Gold Faculty: How much time did you get for preparation right after your degree? What was your strategy to prepare for MPCJ?

Ayushi: I started my preparation in July, and the vacancies were announced in August. I wasn't aware of the MP Civil Judge's previous year's papers. I do not believe in luck as I believe in my hard work. The prelims exam was in February. Hence I had 8 months to prepare. Time doesn't matter in your preparation if you believe in hard work and dedication. 

Judiciary Gold Faculty: What was your specific strategy for the preliminary exam?

Ayushi: I consulted many of my seniors, who suggested studying bare acts. I could finish studying all the subjects and bare acts by the end of December. From January, I prepared for prelims and revised all the topics. Revision is very important during MP Judiciary Exam Preparation. I never studied any new topic in the revision period. I planned my daily schedule. I didn't sit for 6-8 hours continuously to study the subject instead. I had planned to study the topics each day without postponing them. 

Judiciary Gold Faculty: While writing answers for Civil Law and Criminal Law, was there any specific pattern you followed? 

Ayushi: To be frank, I have very bad handwriting. Make sure to write the answer to the point. Don't just write unnecessary sentences which can fetch you no marks. I followed this strategy of writing to the point, which helped me score good marks. Also, there should be proper spacing between words and lines. Ensure that the answer script is legible. 

It is important to understand the question and then write the answer. Follow the respective format of writing the answers. 

Judiciary Gold Faculty: How did you prepare for the translation subject in the Mains exam?

Ayushi: I was good at translating Hindi to English, but I was facing issues while translating English to Hindi as I was unaware of Hindi terms. The most important thing to remember while preparing for Translation in Judiciary Exams is to be thorough with the Grammar. I began my preparation by studying words from the dictionary. 

I spent one hour every day studying translation. I practised translating one-liners or paragraphs daily to enhance my preparation.
