However, the pattern for prelims, mains, and interviews varies for each state.

To help you understand the Judiciary Exam Pattern of different states, we have provided the pattern for all the stages in the post below.

Judicial Services Preliminary Examination

  • The first stage of the Judicial Services Exam is the preliminary exam, consisting of multiple-choice questions. 
  • The marks scored in the preliminary examination are not considered while preparing the final merit list.
  • Also, the minimum qualifying marks will vary for each state.

Judicial Services Mains Examination

  • The second stage of the Judicial Services Exam is a subjective type of examination consisting of three to four papers (even 5 - 6 papers in states like UP, BIHAR & UTTARAKHAND).
  • The marks scored in the main examination are considered while preparing the final merit list.
  • The minimum qualifying marks vary for each state. Students equal to three times the number of vacancies are called for interviews.

Judicial Services Viva-Voce/ Personal Interview

It is the last stage of the selection process. In the interview, you are evaluated based on general knowledge, personality, and other factors. This stage carries 50 to 100 marks, of which you must secure a minimum of qualifying marks to get selected.
