This program is conducted four times in a year and covers all the levels of Judicial Service Examination. There are three stages in the Judicial Service Examination, Prelims, Mains and Interview. The aspirants first appear in the Prelims and those who qualify, will sit in the main examination and successful candidates will be called for the Interview.
The PMI program mirrors all the three stages of examination with the same rigour and depth. It permits a participant to test his level of preparation, his strength and weakness and which area he will have to further improve upon. Thus, even before actually appearing in the process of examination he gets a vicarious experience, feels the pulse of examination which holds him in a good stead when he actually appears.
The prelim has two papers, General Studies and Law. The paper of Law focusses on facts, bare acts, case laws and covers a few subjects which are not asked in the Mains. There is negative marking also, therefore the focus in the prelims is both on the speed and accuracy. It requires a special skill set to read the question accurately and identify the correct answer fast. The prelims part of PMI prepares the aspirants for that.
The main examination tests the depth of knowledge, application and ability of a candidate to articulate itself. Many a times an aspirant knows his subject thoroughly but is not able to frame his answers, apportion time between different questions and express himself succinctly. The Main part of PMI helps him to identify and strengthen those area. After Mains, the faculty also discusses with each participants his shortcomings and how he can improve upon.
The interview is conducted with the same ambience of actual interview and with the experience board, who have conducted interviews in high level examinations. This also give an opportunity for an aspirant to check both his non – verbal and verbal skills. After the interview, the board discusses with every interviewee his strength and shortcomings and how he can overcome his weak spots.
Thus, PMI program is a complete package for assessing oneself, identify the weak areas and further improve upon. PMI program is included in the Premier (One-yearProgram) module.
