English and GK make it easier for students
As in the previous years, Reasoning was the toughest section in AILET 2016 with puzzles and analogies covering most of the section. “Critical reasoning took a bit of my time,” said Sunil. “I got stuck in analogies and lost almost 20 minutes of the test covering one question.”
However, some students were already expecting this section to be tough and were geared up for it. “I knew reasoning would take time, especially, puzzles. I took a lot of mock tests to set my timing for this section which really helped me to manage my time in the test,” said Naman Dubey who took the test from Delhi.
While Critical Reasoning was tough, Legal Aptitude was the surprise element in the test. Previously, AILET papers usually had questions from Principles and Facts, while this time, the entire pattern of this section was changed. However, while the pattern took students aback for a while most were able to recover as the new pattern was relatively easier. “I was expecting questions on principles and theory but instead the entire set of questions followed a new format,” says Sanam. “Nonetheless, the section was not so tough.”
As in previous years, GK and English were the easiest sections of the lot. Most of the questions were from Current affairs and offered students a very good opportunity to score. “English was very easy. Besides, for those who were updated with the latest news GK was easy too,’ says Naman Dubey.
Experts on AILET
Most of the experts echoed the view of the students putting English and GK in the easier slot while Reasoning and Legal aptitude where a notch higher on the difficulty scale.
“Overall the paper was easier compared to last year,” said Harsh Gagrani, LegalEdge Tutorials. “English was a relief as topics reading compressions and grammar were easy to solve and took less time,” he said.
According to Rajendra Khadav, there were 10 passages and five fill in the blanks in English. “It was less time consuming than last year.”
In legal aptitude, there were questions from assertion reason, legal current affairs, legal static GK and regal reasoning according to Harsh. “Legal current affairs was the most difficult topic in this section.”
In terms of Cutoff, the experts did not differ much with Rajendra Khadav putting the score at 105 and Harsh Gagrani putting it at 104.AILET 2016 was an offline paper comprising 150 questions of 150 marks.

Hello aspirant. Firstly, the subjects are english, mathematics just the basic maths, GK, legal aptitude and reasoning. Hope you would be aware of the syllabus. If not, drop a comment, I will help you with that.
1. English... usual ones like, blanks, synonyms, passages so on and so forth. Practice the previous year question papers
2. Basic mathematics .. algebra, work and time, Quant of basic level, distance etc ..practice RS agarwal books and ncert books bits, it would be more than enough. But practice daily
3. GK... get to know all the static gk question and answers that are constant. Regarding current affairs ,follow news and news paper daily. If possible note down the issues going on for long time
