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.

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.”

Hello dear aspirant.
As of now you will be facing a great problem at the time of admission because they can't allow a failed candidate. Yes in eligibility criteria you will find that only +2 passed is required. But it will be not sufficient when you go for admission.
