Good Luck

No, I do not think a law practice is mandatory. What it requires is that a candidate must hold a degree of Bachelor of Laws (Professional) of any University established by Law. There are some age limits, but apart from that there is no other restrictions.

Hello priyanka,

First of all before start preparing for RJS ( Rajasthan Judicial Exam) you should know about the each aspect of this exam. By each aspect i mean to say syllabus of exam, exam pattern, all about it. And not only knowledge but deep understanding of this exam and particularly of syllabus is required because it remain a major factor during your preparation.

Another major factor is your interest and dedication which ensures your success and helps in overcoming all the hurdles.

Now your problem is where you live, there is not a coaching to guide you for this exam.

I must say that without self~study no one can clear any exam, agree that guidance is required during the preparation but for guidance you not need to go to offline coaching, you can access to online coaching and get the guidance or solutions to all your problems from there.

I recommend you to go with UNACADEMY I'm not doing any kind of promotion instead telling you the experience of my friend's brother who did the same from there successfully.

I hope you are satisfied with the answer.
