Here we have Harsh Gagrani, Director, LegalEdge Tutorials sharing the last-minute expert tips for AILET 2014, which will help in smoothening the rough edges of your law entrance preparation.

Below are the excerpts of the interview –

Careers360: Share the section wise preparation with AILET 2014 aspirants.

Harsh Gagrani: Here is how you can tackle the sections of AILET 2014 while taking the entrance –

English – Though questions from various topics have been appearing in AILET, the Reading Comprehension passages in the previous years’ papers have been long and slightly difficult to comprehend. I would recommend practicing Reading Comprehension passages, especially, from previous years’ CAT and GMAT papers. Hence, it would help to practice Cloze passages for AILET 2014.

Logical Reasoning- Past AILET papers reflect that NLU, Delhi has repeated paragraph based Critical Reasoning questions more than CLAT and SET paper setters. In fact, these questions have been a regular feature of AILET. It is thus, recommended to practice paragraph based Critical Reasoning questions from CAT and LSAT papers.

Legal Reasoning- Though Legal Knowledge questions have not been featured regularly in AILET papers, it would be wise to be well-prepared with this section, especially. Since single marks are known to have created big differences in AILET selection procedures. Moreover, it is advisable to go through the important articles on the Indian Constitution, be updated with important facts about Indian polity (especially about houses and assemblies) and so on.
NLU, Delhi has also, on more than one occasion, given Legal Reasoning questions without principle(s). Aspirants should practice such questions from past years’ papers of AILET.

General Knowledge (GK) – The difficulty level of General Knowledge questions in AILET has usually been a notch above CLAT and SET papers. Many questions have regularly appeared from general science and history in GK. You can update these sections by reading a good current affairs and GK guide.

Mathematics – In the light of previous years’ AILET papers, the Mathematics section does not have any highlighting facts for preparation. Questions have appeared from almost all major topics in AILET in the past few years. Candidates should make sure that they are thorough with all the relevant formulas from important chapters.

Careers360: What should be the need of the hour when AILET 2014 is just 48 hours away?

Harsh Gagrani: The last few hours of preparation will require hard and importantly, smart work on any serious aspirant’s end. You should prioritize and complete the topics, which have appeared frequently in previous years’ AILET examinations.

Careers360: Share some of your last minute tips with the AILET 2014 aspirants.

Harsh Gagrani: Besides the above, here are some last minute essentials to guide the AILET 2014 aspirants –

  • Do not panic on seeing the paper. Previous years’ AILET papers have been more difficult than CLAT papers. So, it is advisable be prepared for surprises.

  • Keep as many marginally blunt pencils as possible. Searching for sharpeners during the 90 minutes test is a big wastage of time.

  • It is advisable not to study too much on the last day. It is better to take rest and remain calm.

  • Also, eat your lunch at least 2 hours before the entrance test commences.

  • Make a clear strategy regarding the time to be devoted to each section in the first one or two minutes of getting the question paper. More importantly, stick to the strategy throughout the paper.

  • All the best for your AILET 2014
