JUDICIAL SERVICES EXAM

Judges are held in high esteem in our society. A judge is responsible for enforcing justice in the society, making impartial decisions, interpret Laws, settle Legal disputes and act as a mediator between litigating and give the verdict. A highly coveted post, it requires special personal skills such as patience, impartiality, self-confidence, commitment and a deep sense of integrity. Apart from these, a person must also have genuine practical knowledge of the Laws and analytical ability to interpret and apply them actually.

The academic qualification for a judge is a degree in Law from a recognized Institution or University, membership of the State Bar Council as a qualified advocate and clearing the Judicial Service Exam.

EXAM STRUCTURE FOR JSE

The Judicial Service Exams are conducted in 3 stages – The Preliminary Exam, Main Exam, and Interview.

The qualifying marks also vary as per state. However, the minimum qualifying marks as per category are 60% for general and 55% for reserved candidates.

Candidates equating nearly 3 times the number of vacancies in the judicial services are called for Viva and final selections are made from among them.
