  • A very balanced paper, I must say, however ipr's weightage is shockingly high!
  • Paper I was lengthy.
    Attempted 2.5 questions properly.
    Rest 2.5 questions just addressed the main demand of the question in points with pretty bad handwriting due to paucity of time. I answered them in very less words. I am afraid of the evaluation of these questions.

    Paper II was good. Addressed all questions to my satisfaction.

  • Paper 1 was moderate, paper 2 was quite difficult and many indirect questions were there ( last year paper 2 was so easy)

    How did your Paper 1 go last year?
    Did you attempt all questions?
    Were you satisfied with your performance?
    Did you address the main demand of the question?
  • Compared to last year, Paper 1 was of same or similar standards, i.e. moderate and satisfying, yet a bit tougher than last year because more generalist questions were part of the paper. Generalist questions = more vagueness = lesser marks in Optional. However, marks for Paper 1 in 2016 for almost all the candidates were unexpectedly low. Hence, nothing in concrete could be said about it.

    About Paper 2, comparatively it was unconventional than last year. Compulsory section with Two IPR questions was challenging. But it is scoring too. So, yet again it depends on how examiner values. Last year was a black year for law. But, exceptions are exceptions. They wouldnt rule the day.

    I attempted all, yet scored in single digits. Addressed the main demand but not examiner's demand I guess, 777made m short of 10marks despite 400+ in GS and nearly 150 in essay

    @Nananana sir there was a question in paper 2 that in all robbery either there is theft or extortion? Explain
    So do we need to define theft and robbery under their specific sections and then explain?
    What did you do? Plz answer

    I just wrote sec 390 as it is and explained it with illustration and that was sufficient to fill 2 pages one for thetf and other for extortion.

    defamation wale ka Kya answer kiya...whether we can claim grounds mentioned in ipc or not

    Look S.499 IPC Exceptions include either Truth or good faith.
    Truth is an absolute defense for tortious liability. While bona fide comment is also an absolute defence. Thus, IPC exceptions coincide with Tort law exceptions, to that extent they can be used.
    But, the question asked whether IPC Exceptions can be used as INDEPENDENT defences. The answer is no as Tort law does not recognise defences of Criminal law.

    I gave arguments for and against and concluded that for arguments are better.

    Against:
    Ar. 14 violated : discrimination. No educational requirement for MP/MLA
    Undemocratic : choice of elected candidates restricted

    For:
    Right to vote not curtailed.
    Educated PRI leaders---> better governance --> stronger democracy
