Uttarakhand Judiciary Prelims Exam Analysis (General)

This is inferred from the student's review and how they understood the questions. The question paper had repetitive questions from the UKPCS J Previous Year's Papers as observed in Family Laws.

The UKPCS J Exam was a blend of easy and difficult questions considering the topics asked in the exam.

To our surprise, students reported that they could attempt questions from the sections/parts they didn't study or revise but were stuck at questions based on the topics changed multiple times.

Let's discuss some highlights on how this exam is different from all other state judiciary exams:

  • The syllabus is entirely different. Family Law is an additional primary law asked in the exam apart from the general ones like IPC, CrPC, Evidence, Transfer of Property, etc.
  • The deciding factor or the dominating factor here is General Knowledge. (You surely cannot miss out on this one!). International Law-based GK Questions were asked in the exam.

Uttarakhand Judiciary Prelims Exam Analysis for Major, Unorthodox and Minor Laws

Talking about the major laws, let's discuss each of them one by one for better clarity. Let's start with the following: Index-based questions dominated CrPC.For anyone of you appearing for MP or Chhattisgarh Judiciary along with this one, CrPC would have been more accessible for you to attempt.

  • IPC was a section with the dominance of illustration-based questions. However, you'd see a few index-based questions from it as well. Additionally, the mainstream matches the following questions in the UKPCS J Exam. 
  • CPC was the fun section with various questions from Index-based to simple Garnishee order.
  • Transfer of Property focused on testing the conceptual knowledge and had questions based on the same.
  • The minor and unorthodox laws were relatively easy to attempt since they didn't have a pre-defined weightage. It is usually asked for a lower weightage,e though!
  • Family Law was the trick! This was tricky because of the questions asked in it. To know what those questions weres, watch the video linked below based on Uttarakhand Judiciary 2022 Exam Analysis.

G, K, as mentioned above,e holds a 50-mark weightage and shall be called "The King" of all sections in the exam.

This time this was surprising and unexpected at the same time to find "sections" in the GK part of the paper. For example, Surrogacy Act ke konse section mei ye definition mentioned hai?

There were questions from landmark judgment as well. As observed in UKPSC CJ (Junior Division) Analysis, the decisions weren't limited to Supreme Court judgments, but students celebrated queries based on Calcutta High Court-based judgment questions too!

The Constitution,n as well as all know,w is asked as Polity in this exam; it was the same this year!

Questions based on Awards, Geography, Important Dates, etc., were asked in this exam.

Sectional timing is not allotted in the Prelims or Mains exam. But you must consider the weightage of each section to divide time in the best possible way. For example, in Prelims, there are two sections to be covered in three hours, one with a weightage of 50 marks while the other has a weightage of 150 marks. In this case, candidates must give 45 minutes to the first section only and should save the remaining time for the second portion.
