Judiciary English

It is every law student’s dream to become a judicial officer and sit on the other side of the dais from where he can actually utilize his full knowledge and potential and do that what makes him different from the entire legal fraternity. JUDGE!

The job of a judicial officer is the most technical one and carries with it great responsibilities because his one decision can change the lives of many people. That is why this exam demands thorough knowledge and strong command over law subjects.

We at VRANKERS understand this and that is why we prepare every student from the very first day for the challenges a student is going to face during his exam preparation, in his selection process and also after becoming a judicial officer.



The preliminary examination serves as screening for mains exam. The type of questions asked in preliminary examination is multiple choice question with or without negative marking. The marks secured in preliminary examination are not considered for the final selection. Final selection depends upon the marks obtained in mains and viva voce. The preliminary examination tests your thorough and in depth knowledge of Bare Act, landmark and recent judgments and current legal events.


It is a subjective exam which tests the concept clarity and thorough knowledge of the subject. The exam comprises of 4 to 5 papers (LAW PAPER, LANGUAGE PAPER, GK & GS PAPER).


This is the third and final stage of selection where candidates are assessed on the basis of their personality, area of interest and intelligence among other factors.

AT VRANKERS our mission is to get you through all these stages and turn your dreams into reality. We focus on analytical and research based study and help you analyze the power that is hidden inside you.
