To start your preparation, you should consider the Reverse way of studying method, i.e., you should start preparing for Mains which will automatically cover your Prelims syllabus too.

You should not make that mistake.
Check out the detailed syllabus to know the subjects involved, as the subjects vary for each state.
The UKPSC judiciary exam syllabus for the main exam is vast.
Thus, when you start preparing for the mains, it will be beneficial for you to crack prelims easily.

Uttarakhand Judiciary Preparation Tips to Make the Best Study Plan
The UKPSC exam primarily tests your concepts and knowledge of the law. A sound understanding of the concepts makes it easy to retain important sections more effectively.
You have to keep in mind that many people say that the Uttarakhand Judicial Services Exam is all about how much you can remember sections and language of Bare Acts. However, this is a common misconception among aspirants.
There may be very few direct questions on a Bare Act in the prelims exam. Therefore, only mechanical reading of Bare Acts will not suffice.
Here are a few points to keep in mind while you prepare a study plan:
Try to include topics from various subjects in each day's schedule.
Don't include all tough subjects, as you may not be interested in studying.
If you prepare for a year, you have a lot of time to learn all the topics.
If you are going to college, you can plan your study plan by giving at least 2 hours each day on Uttarakhand judiciary exam preparation.
If you are preparing six months before the exam, you should study at least 4-5 hours daily.
Also, make sure to take breaks while studying. Don't study continuously as you may forget what you have learned in a previous subject.
Uttarakhand Judiciary Preparation Tips 2023 for Prelims Paper
As said earlier, don't prepare separately for prelims and mains. Begin with the mains preparation, and automatically, you are preparing for prelims.
As the preliminary section includes multiple-choice questions, you must improve your speed to attempt all 150 questions.
Keep in mind there is no negative marking in the prelims exam, so attempt all the questions.
Since you are doing your prelims preparation along with the mains, you don't have to prepare separately for all the topics again. Instead, you can do a lot of revision.
Make notes while you are studying any topic. This can help in remembering concepts for a long time and also help during revision.
Some of the major topics you should study first and thoroughly are - the Code of Civil Procedure, the Indian Evidence Act of 1872, the Indian Penal Code of 1861, and the Code of Criminal Procedure 1973.
Read at least 12 months of current affairs for the general knowledge section before the exam.
Prepare short notes on each crucial topic, outlining the relevant legal provisions, their content, prominent cases, and exceptions.
Try to keep it as concise as possible.
These notes will be the most helpful tool for 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.
You should prepare a question bank of 25 questions from the previous year's question paper and create 25 HOTS questions from the last year's question papers to help you at the time of your revision.
Uttarakhand Judiciary Preparation Tips 2023 for Mains Paper
As you have done your one round of preparation during your preliminary exam, this shall be your second round.
After getting thoroughly familiar with these, focus on minor subjects, i.e., the Indian Contract Act, Specific Relief Act, and Transfer of Property Act.
While preparing notes in your language, focus on Bare Acts, Commentaries, and Leading Case Laws.
After studying all the subjects, start solving the previous year's Judiciary question papers and do as many mock tests as possible. Make sure you do not answer the questions subject-wise and do it as a whole.
You should develop a habit of studying law primarily from Bare Acts.
Take the help of text/reference books to note the essentials of legal provision and the leading cases, if any, for each essential. Read carefully the explanation and provision attached to the primary provision.
Illustrations appended to the Sections are fundamental 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 essential provisions.
Remember that the mains Examination is subjective, and you need to concentrate on your answer writing skills.
