    Dear..

    To become a Judge in supreme court you should have First class marks in your LLB, Apart from that you have to work as a lawyer in supreme court for at least 10 years or being a high court judge,then he have to pass an entrance and all. IJS is the exam that you can give to start as this is the entrance exam to enter into the judicial service of India.

    Try to climb step by step

    Hope it will help

    Cheers...!!!

    For becoming a judge of the supreme court at first you should become a judge of the high court. Supreme court judge is the promotion post of the high court judge. For becoming a judge of the high court you should have 7 years of practice and should have minimum LLB degree. The appointment as judge of the high court is made by the collegium consisting of the 3 senior most judge of the concerned high court. Other way to get appointment as high court judge is to write judicial service examination and after some service get appointed as the judge of the high court by promotion.
