What experts advise before the exam day?

Avoid reading anything new – Experts have warned the candidates not to start reading or preparing anything new related to the exam at this stage as it will increase unnecessary pressure. Rajneesh Singh, law exam expert says, “I would not advise any candidate to study anything new except for revising Current Affairs and General Knowledge.”

Arrange AILET documents a night before – Experts suggest arranging documents related to AILET 2016 a night before the law entrance exam, so that they can avoid rush in the next day morning. Aspirants need to check whether they have taken their AILET Admit Card, Valid Identity Proof, Pen, Pencil and Eraser.


Visit exam centre one day advance – Experts have advised aspirants to visit the exam centre of AILET 2016 personally a day before so that they can have an idea of the actual time to reach the exam centre and also know the exact location. This will help the law aspirants to reach at their allotted test centre in time on May 1, 2016.


Relax – Experts advise AILET aspirants to relax on the day before the exam. The exam experts explain that there is no need to worry about the exam as aspirants have already been preparing for the entrance exam for over 4-5 months. Harsh Gagrani of LegalEdge Tutorials says, “The aspirants need to relax by different means as they have been working hard for the past few months. Relaxing mind and body will help them feel good and motivated for the BA LLB entrance exam.”


What experts advise on the exam day?

Wake up early – AILET aspirants are advised to wake up early on May 1, 2016 so they can get ready on time for the BA LLB admission test.


Verify documents – Although the aspirants have arranged their documents a night before, they are advised to cross-check whether they have not missed any important document or article, needed for AILET.


Avoid carrying unimportant items – AILET Exam authorities in the admit card have also mentioned not to carry personal items including mobile phones, pager, electronic watches, calculators or any other electronic gadgets. You will be allowed to appear for the law exam carrying the admit card along with a valid id proof, blue/black ball point pen, pencil, eraser and photographs. Carrying any unauthorized documents or articles inside the exam hall may debar the candidate from taking the law entrance test.


Report to exam centre on time – As candidates will be visiting their exam centres on April 30, they have a fair idea about location, direction, traffic and exact time to reach the centre. On May 1, 2016 they must leave on time so that they reach the exam centre at least an hour prior to the commencement of exam.


Ensure seating arrangement – As you will be reaching the exam centre of AILET, an hour before the commencement of exam, you can utilize the time in ensuring your sitting arrangement and check your candidature details including Name, Roll Number and Date of Birth as provided on the notice board.


AILET is the law entrance test conducted by NLU Delhi for admissions to 81 undergraduate seats on offer.
