Starting with the first point,
This is one of the most relevant topics of discussion amongst Law students:
What is the Proper Way to read the Bare Act?
You need not worry about it anymore as in this post I will clear all the doubts related to Judiciary Exams in India.
Bare Act is the Key as far as Law examinations are concerned, but as per the law school curriculum, the students are taught directly from elaborative Course books.
Bare Act covers content related to each subject with explanation and case laws, missing the very basics of study for every competitive law examination; its the BARE ACT.
If you are a beginner or about to start the preparation for Judiciary Exam examination, you must be well versed with the meaning of the Bare Act.
What is the Bare Act?
The bare act is the bare law/legal language which the parliament has passed.
In layman language, Bare Act covers the law in proper sequence/section numbers in a way that all the topics related to the subject are covered,
But, all the provisions are covered with basic legal terms, and those terms are not explained.
To understand what is written in the bare act, for the beginners, it is suggested that they should read the bare act and read relevant sections from the textbook with explanation side by side.
Try doing it for one or two subjects….Soon YOU can understand the language of the bare act for other subjects as well.
Here I would like to post some example in the form of a video which will further help you to understand the basics related to the reading of the Bare Act for Judicial Exams. ( Video is in Hindi Language ) but the written text is covered in this post.
Many students are not able to crack the Judiciary Examination, and in this video, I Have covered the reasons for the same.

Coming on to the Stages in Judiciary Exam:
Judiciary Exam is divided into three stages:
- Preliminary Stage
- Mains Stage
- Interview Stage
In order to plan in an effective way, let’s deal with it step by step.
For the preliminary stage, Multiple Choice Questions is the pattern. Basic knowledge about the bare act is sufficient but for States like Delhi, Punjabi and Haryana etc.
Something more has to be done as the pattern of examination is changing with time.
It can be said that a few years back, the portion of the paper was easy as it was directly from section numbers, illustrations and bit of fact-based situations.
In recent time the pattern is changing and thorough knowledge of the Bare Act is required in order to get through.
The second stage of the examination is the Mains which covers subjective question formations and also language part that is Hindi, English and other state-specific languages.
For Mains part, a full understanding of the subject is required to attempt the questions in the examination.
The last and the final stage is the Interview part which judges overall traits of one’s personality. This part should be focused on from day one of the preparations of this prestigious examination.
One more doubt that comes to mind is; Do I need to learn all the Sections of the Bare Act?
