Analysis

This year, the examination was comparatively on a much difficult side than the previous year papers. The paper consisted of both, Bare-Act based questions as well as Application based questions.

Haryana Local Laws included Punjab Courts Act and Haryana Urban (Control of Rent and Eviction) Act, 1973. Current Affairs and Legal GK included questions on Constitutional development. This area was relatively easy, if one had a good hold on Constitution.

Overall Conclusion:

The Level of Difficulty of questions ranged from Medium to High. For one to ace this examination, a thorough understanding of the subjects was of utmost importance.

There were repetitions from the previous year papers. Aspirants who had solved them dedicatedly would have found this year’s paper a bit handy but the overall standard of the paper was high. Some of the questions were wrong and subsequently notified by HPSC to have been deleted.

The gift of high number of vacancies has been creating the presumption of paper being easy, but the same is not true. As there is an increase in the number of vacancies, so has the level of the paper increased. Clearing Pre-Examination is no more a child’s play, it requires persistent hard work and focus.
