How to crack Rajasthan Judicial Services

When it comes to judicial services exams and in particular Rajasthan Judicial Services, it is always said to be a very demanding task in terms of hours of hard work. The bulk of almost 50 bare acts, lots of coaching classes, professional guidance, an almirah full of reference books and what not.

Rajasthan Judicial Services exams is one of the toughest PCS-J examinations. Cracking the exam is a tough job but not an impossible task. All we need is the correct guidance and hard work. Let us find out what it takes to clear Rajasthan Judicial Services examination.

How to crack Rajasthan Judicial Services exam

Come out of your phobias

The course is bulky for everyone and everyone has only 24 hours to study. Vacancies are also same for everyone and you just need only one seat for yourself.

Quite often than not, aspirants are confused whether to take coaching for the judicial services exams or not. Coachings are not helpful unless there are good teachers out there with innovative teaching methodology. If you find a coaching centre with this qualities, then go ahead for it. Else, self-study is sufficient.

Believe me, there is really no need for coaching at all. You just need to make a special plan for yourself and stick to it.

Study Smart and not Hard

You must scrutinize your syllabus smartly and target only the scoring areas. There are some areas of the syllabus which can cost you time equivalent to the time of 4-5 other subjects and have weightage of just 1 or 2 marks while there are subjects which you can complete in a flash of time and they have weightage of a lot of marks. Just identify these subjects and concentrate on them. Remember even the toppers get only 55 -60 % marks and cut off is much lesser, you don’t have to get full marks to clear it, you just need to score the cutoff marks to crack it.

Prepare important topics in this manner

After you identify important topics, your next target is to prepare for them in a proper way. First, make a proper schedule.

There are few thumb rules which we must keep in our mind.

  1. Try to learn something new and add to your notes etc. every day.
  2. Learn whatever you have written today – Know the art of note making. Learn today’s work you have done, today only. If you will leave it for tomorrow you will forget most of it and also probabilities are that you will never end up completing it.
  3. Revise old work daily. Even if you have to skip step one and two then also revise at any cost.

Rajasthan Judicial Services is a never-ending process. So you need to update yourself day by day. But key to success is revisions. Completing the syllabus is not an as difficult task as it is to keep it in your mind. There are people who understand and learn things very well but the main issue with them is that they forget everything by the time. There is no other option to do it except by revising it on a daily basis. At the start, you may find it boring and time-consuming, but when the day for your test will come, your confidence and performance will be much higher than others.

Prepare bare acts well

Many questions are based solely on bare acts, especially in pre-examinations. Moreover, in long answers type questions, bare acts will equip you with a lot of material to properly understand the question and then explain and write it. Sometimes there will be a question which will be so unexpected that you will not have enough of matter to write on them.

Good knowledge of bare acts gives you an edge over others. You can at least write something on it if you have basic knowledge of that question. It’s better to write something instead of leaving a question unattempted, but if you will just write anything you are not going to get marks for it.

Books available in the market

click above

There are few good books in the market like the universal guide for judicial examinations etc. (not mentioning here because the article is not for promoting any book). Please buy them even if they are in Hindi. It’s a lot better to translate a Hindi question and then prepare for it instead of having nothing in your hand and to ask that what should I do and how should I do. However, you can refer to the following books.

Subject Book(s) Recommended
Constitution of India Bare Act, Pratayiogita Darpan (Polity issue), M.P.Jain
Code of Civil Procedure Bare Act, Takwani
Transfer of Property Act Bare Act, Poonam Pradhan (lexis Nexis)
Indian Contract Act Bare Act, Avtar Singh
Specific Reliefs Act Bare Act, Avtar Singh
Limitation Act Bare Act, J.D.Jain
Indian Evidence Act Bare Act, V.P. Sarathi, Batuklal
Indian Penal Code Bare Act, K.D. Gaur
Code of Criminal Procedure Bare Act, Kelkar
Negotiable Instruments Act Bare Act

Past year papers are a must

Just find out past year papers from market or net and prepare answers to them. Just check them yourself for the first time. You will yourself identify many of your mistakes. Then after preparing a final answer to them, give them to some lecturer or experienced person to check. This will help you a lot to improve.

Take help of books and bare acts also, when the first time you try to solve these paper

Yes, you have heard it correctly. First time when you give yourself a test for solving past year papers just cheat. This cheating is good for your later performance. But don’t make it your habit. This applies just for the first time you attempt it. This is because you will be able to write the best answer in this way. After you prepare a final answer to them it will not at all be needed. Also, this will help you to identify ‘ how to write a proper answer and how to deal with a particular question’. Once you know how to do it, then there is no need to continue this procedure.

Keep a track of time while solving past year papers

There is no benefit of having a very good knowledge or writing a very good answer to few questions of the exam when you can’t complete your paper in given time. Most of the deserving candidates fail to clear it just because they couldn’t complete paper on time.

A person getting 6 out of 10 in all 10 questions on an average is much better than a person getting 8 out of 10 in 7 questions and leaving remaining three empty. Just practice again and again and again and practice until you can complete your paper with at least half an hour additional in your hand after completing it. If you can complete it in this much time at your home then only you will be able to complete it in given time at the examination centre. Your speed of doing MCQs must be at least 120 questions per hour.

Good handwriting

Believe it or not, but they check your copies in a hurry. If they find your writing good you get better marks for their convenience, while if you have bad writing, no matter how excellent content you write, fetching marks will be difficult. 

Give equal weightage to minors, locals, majors, language, judgement writing etc.

If you think that you can leave something for now and will do it later, believe me, you will not get time for that later also. Once you are done with your syllabus then during revision your speed of revisions must reach up to a level that you can revise at least 4 average sized minors including local acts ( number may increase or decrease as per the length and weightage of minors), ¼ the of a major, one essay either in Hindi or English per day, and a portion of judgment writing daily.

Study in groups

Most interesting way to learn is to study in groups. You can internally compete in many ways and the loser gives the party. Ways can be – (a) who can reproduce maximum sections at a given time with most perfection (b) or you can divide sections eg. 100 sections of IPC each among yourselves and reproduce them in the group – in this way, all of you will revise whole IPC on the go and so on.

Start teaching

Best way ever to learn something is to teach someone. This can increase your knowledge to the extent you can’t even imagine. This compels you to study as you have to face students and also you will find new questions each day asked by students which you couldn’t have come through by yourself.

Prepare colourful notes

If you have a habit of making notes then make them with colourful pens etc. Like heading with different colours, subheadings with different, case laws with different, important principals with different, section numbers with different and so on. This may seem to be time-consuming to you or a difficult task for now, but it makes learning a lot easier. Our brain has a habit to remember colourful notes much easier than one coloured notes. When the time will come you will remember even the page and the portion of the page where you had written a particular case law just because your brain has taken a picture of it due to that particular colour. Moreover, it helps out in quickly going through your notes. Suppose you want to search a particular case law for a particular section and your eyes will search only for a particular colour instead of whole notes how much time it will save at the time of last revisions when every second is important.

Make fair notes in the first instance only

If you are going to coaching, then anyhow make fair notes in the first instance only. Don’t try to take rough notes at classes and then fair them out. They will cost you unnecessary time and they not at all amount to revising the notes as all your attention is just on making your notes look beautiful and not on revising, Instead make fair notes at the same time and then make rough notes to shorten them up and then to further shorten them and then to shorten them to such extent that you can have all your notes in your own code language understandable by you in as less as one notebook. Yes, whole bulk of 50 subjects only in a single 100-page notebook.

Language paper can be divided into two parts

For pre, you have to prepare grammar. No need for any fancy book or coaching at all for this. Just buy any good grammar books of 10th and 12th standard with solved exercises. Just practice these solved exercises and compare your answer with it. If you do it properly you will not need anything else for it.

For mains just divide essays into various categories such as- Rajasthan, Legal topics, Current issues etc. Then prepare a list of topics on all these categories which are most probable to come. Prepare points in any language ( English or Hindi) on these topics. Just take a topic each day and try to write an essay on it including the points jotted down by you. Check it yourself and then write an improved version of it and then get it checked by someone experienced. Your work is done now you are ready for the language paper. Don’t ever try to cram up an essay as they always give the same topic but with some twists. So if you will write that crammed up essay you will not get good marks. Just remember the important points of the essay which is a lot easier to remember than a whole essay and try to learn the art of writing an essay. In this way, no matter which essay they will give you to write, you will end up writing a good essay for sure.

Judgement Writing

  • You will not get any book in the market on judgement writing specially targeted to judicial exam approach. Also on the net, you will hardly find any good judgements (especially in English). The judgments available on the net are all judgments given by high courts, supreme court and higher courts and hence, they are of no use to you.
  • So what you need to do is, just go to local courts, enquire about some judges who are respected for giving good quality judgements, then you can apply for certified copies of their judgments. Just prepare a list of different kinds of judgements like civil, criminal etc. and apply for them. They will provide you copies, but they will be in Hindi most probably or may even be in some local languages.
  • Just read them 4-5 times at least. Mark important portions and common portions of each judgement. This will give you a broad overview and a skeleton of a judgement. You will also get to know important ingredients of any particular type of judgement.
  • Now just translate this judgement in English (Hindi medium students don’t have to do it). Now take few past year papers and try to attempt judgement writing questions from them. Try to get them checked by someone experienced and practice more and more judgements. Except these, there are various books available for skeleton of various applications, bails, FIRs, charges, etc. You can easily learn them from there.
  • Remember, in actual situations judgements are given on much-complicated situations then the situations given in exam questions. Thus, they are much larger in size and much complicated. They are not expected from you that level of understanding of the situation and to write that level of judgement. You don’t have to show your knowledge of language or complications in them. You just have to show that you have basic knowledge of skeleton of judgement and also you have a basic level of understanding of situations given to you. You will not get enough time to write a high-quality judgement. You will have to attempt it in a time limit and restrict your word limit to make that possible.
  • Every step of judgement including its skeleton have marks allotted to them. If you can’t write a good appreciation of issues or a good decision, don’t worry, they are just a part of a whole judgement, and if you write other things properly and your skeleton is correct you will definitely get some marks for that.
  • Read question properly and mark important points in question itself. Plaint and written statement are a mere repetition of the facts given in question in a proper skeleton and few other things like court fees etc. which you can do very easily.
  • The framing of issues is also not a difficult task. If you read the question properly, you can easily identify points of difference among parties. You just have to frame an issue on each of such point of difference in proper legal language.
  • Appreciation of evidence is again mostly repetition of facts given in question itself in a proper formal way. And in all these fields you can score very well.
  • Only the final verdict portion is a technical thing which you will need a lot of practice to master. But if you can’t, then it will not make much difference as this portion has only some marks allotted to it, other portions will earn you some good marks.
  • Similarly in criminal judgement questions also FIRs, charge framing etc, are only repetition of facts of the question in a proper skeleton. Only verdict portion is critical, otherwise, all other things are just to be placed in a proper skeleton.  
  • No matter, how better judgement you write, don’t expect very good marks in this question. Copies are checked by very senior judges, and they can find mistakes in any given judgements of even sitting magistrates who are trained especially in judicial academy after selection on writing judgements, you can’t match their expectations so don’t waste much time to please them, this is not a question where you can score well.

The interview is a test of your confidence and spontaneousness and not of your legal knowledge

Yes, you have heard it correct. Although this may need a whole article separately, I will give you an idea of how to do it. They are not checking your legal knowledge in your interviews. Most of the questions they ask in Rajasthan Judicial Services interview are based on practical situations rather than on legal knowledge.

The question will be general even when they are based on legal situations eg. girls may be asked what opinion do you have on the misuse of domestic violence act and 498A, similarly others may be asked what do you think about reservations, and so on. You are expected to give some practical and innovative answer to them and not purely your knowledge of acts and constitution. You will hardly get 2-3 minutes to answer a question generally ( rarely more than that depending on their mood). You have to utilize these 2-3 minutes to show them that how out of the box is your mental approach and not your legal knowledge.

They already know that you have cleared mains that in itself means that you have legal knowledge, and they never distrust their own selection and scrutinizing skills. They will try to irritate you also and at the same time, they will fire legal questions on you. At that point of time, you will start believing that you don’t know anything and you will start losing your confidence. Those questions are also never meant to judge your legal knowledge. They are meant to do just they are doing with you i.e to shake you mentally. And now they will fire a question as easy as even a first-year candidate can answer and you will be so irritated mentally that you can’t answer it also. Their work is done, they have found that you can’t handle pressure and hence, they will reject you. Then how to tackle this situation? Just stay calm. Now as you know that they are not expecting any answer from you for those question, simply keep saying sorry sir, I don’t know the answer to this question. Let the final easy question come and answer it and be happy, you will surely get good marks in an interview as they have now found that you can very well handle pressure.

Few final tips

Relax

When you have prepared as explained above, just relax at the time of exams. Eat light food. Enjoy for few moments.

Manage yourself and prepare in a way that you can revise full syllabus within 3-5 days

When others will be running here and there, you know that you don’t have to, coz you have done everything and you are well managed. If you have done everything as explained above you will be having very short notes which could be revised in very less duration but with much better content than others. You will never be confused. You will have a speed of revising whole Rajasthan Judicial Services Examination syllabus within 7 days. While others would be doing at max 1 or 2 revisions, you would be doing at least 5-6 revisions.

Don’t prepare for pre separately

Pre is just a qualifying exam for mains. Its marks will never be added to your final score. Every person above cut off have equal opportunity. Just prepare for mains and keep practising MCQs from the universal guide or any other good guide for 2 hours daily. Your law is already being prepared side by side. You just need to practice and that will be done in those 2 hours. Those 2 hours are more than sufficient for MCQs part. You will not get time to prepare for your mains after pre. This is a very big mistake most of the students do. You will always find people saying that once let me concentrate on pre, if I’ll clear it then I’ll look for mains. They are those who have already lost the battle. They are targeting just for pre and not for finally clearing the exams. Your pre will be prepared along with your mains itself. In addition to that, you just need to practice MCQs.

Stay away from negative people and negative thoughts

Just cut off in examination days from people who give negative thoughts to you or speak negatively. Also, stay away from candidates who show off too much or ask silly and complicated questions which never comes in the exams but only demotivate you. They do this intentionally to demotivate you by asking you these questions.

Just prepare colourful and easy to remember notes, and prepare the short notes which are easy to carry and handle for last time revisions, don’t go for unnecessary coachings unless they are specifically targeted for Rajasthan Judicial Services Examination with special emphasis on how to deal current pattern of practical questions, It’s not more than 6 months of hard work and rest what you get is a bonus before vacancies. If you work accordingly for 6 months then you just have to sit, practice and revise no need of doing anything else. Stay disconnected with negative people and negative thoughts, revisions are the key to success, sleep well, attempt as many past year papers as you can, remember be prepared well in advance and at the last time just revise your short notes, important points and solve past year papers. No need to take on the pressure upon yourself. Just keep some time to enjoy and refresh your mind as a fresh mind works much faster than an overburdened one.

As I already mentioned, there are no shortcuts to success and hard work cannot be replaced by shortcuts, but yes there is a difference between hard work and smart work. These tricks played an important role in my success in various exams as well as the success of many of my students. They converted their hard work into a smart work. Remember it’s an elimination test and not a selection test. Keeping nerves at the last moment is the key to success which can be achieved only if you are well organized well in advance. Maybe these tricks will not give you shortcuts, but yes, if adopted will lessen your burden a lot, especially during your last revisions. These are not all-inclusive tips and everyone can adopt his own tricks to do this. The only thing to keep in mind is to manage yourself such that you can revise everything in a very short span of time of 3-5 days without any tensions. Hope all the readers will gain something and will come in their future exams with flying colours. Best of luck to all of you.

Difficulties and Phobias which we face as a candidate  

There is no shortcut to success. No one has ever achieved anything without hard work through shortcuts.

  • Bulky Syllabus: We have to cover almost 50 legal subjects to crack it.
  • Less number of vacancies which are decreasing day by day.
  • Boring coaching classes with old-fashioned method of teaching: Syllabus has changed a lot and most of them have not adapted to it.
  • Most of the good coaching classes are targeted to other judiciaries: They follow their own schedule, answer writing pattern is different from RJS.
  • No one is there to teach you local acts and acts specifically for Rajasthan.
  • Lack of practical knowledge (court practice experience) among teachers and many RJS questions are based on practical experience these days.
  • Lack of good reference books especially for English medium candidates of RJS.
  • Experienced teachers have taken retirement and are not teaching now.
  • There is neither proper guidance nor any reference book for judgement writing question which are equal to 15-20 % of total marks.
  • Till you will complete your last subject you would have probably forgotten your first one and this cycle continues.
  • Two whole papers on Essay writing with 3 essays each: As you don’t have enough material you will either have to waste your time on the net for searching or you will not get good marks. There is no one to guide you on “how to write a legal essay”.
  • Taunts of relatives: There is not a single candidate of RJS who has not faced it. Our relatives only add on to our situations by asking questions like: What are you doing these days? And when we say that preparing for RJS, they laugh and say “ Ah! He is doing nothing but sitting at home”. When they ask Haven’t you appeared for the exam yet? And we say vacancy has not been declared yet, and they say that “ haha! He must have failed “. And most interesting one is that they are more excited about our results then we are “ haven’t they declared your result yet?”. There is a never-ending list of these taunts.
