Interview of MPCJ 2018 Topper Ayushi Upadhyay with Shubham Upadhyay

Shubham: 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 with my friend I decided to take up Judiciary as my career. 

Shubham: Corporate companies offer a great salary and have different work environments. But, what was the reason to choose 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 my reason to get into the Judiciary field. I was pursuing my internship wherein one week continuously I travelled 2 hours on a local train and get 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. 

Shubham: 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.

Shubham: 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 previous year 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 for preparation. Time doesn't matter in your preparation if you believe in hard work and your dedication. 

Shubham: What was your specific strategy for the preliminary exam?

Ayushi: I had consulted many of my seniors who suggested studying bare acts. I could complete 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. 

Shubham: 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 begin to write the answer. Follow the respective format of writing the answers. 

Shubham: 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.
