Possible reasons for insignificant gap in AILET scores

 

The law aspirants like you may be scratching up their heads, while mind-boggling over this insignificant gap between the two years’ scores of AILET.

While many of you might be thinking about the preparation level of test takers, Careers360 points out the most possible reason for this insignificant gap.

Those who think that the change in AILET exam pattern, this year might have caused the insignificant variation in the scores of AILET 2018, deemed to match the thought process of Careers360.

Indeed, the introduction of negative marking policy in AILET 2018 led to this significant change in AILET scores between the two years. While until last year there was no marks deduction upon the wrong attempt, the NLU Delhi deducted as much as 0.25 marks for each wrong answer from the total scored marks. This is why; you can see such a gap between the scores of AILET takers.

AILET 2018 Vs AILET 2017 – Cutoff Marks

Next, while we speak on the cutoff marks of AILET, there is another significant change to be seen between the two years– 2018 and 2017. The AILET 2018 cutoff has dipped on an average by 22.5 points as compared to AILET 2017 cutoff marks.

Let us consider the last year’s AILET cutoff marks for General Category, i.e., 89. This year, a candidate from the same category will need just 71.25 marks which is as low as 17.75 points from last year’s cutoff of AILET.

Coming to the SC category, last year the candidates needed to score 71 marks to secure a BA LLB seat in NLU Delhi, whereas this year, they need to score 21.50 points less than the last year’s score, i.e., 49.5 marks.

Worth note – Amazingly, the General Category candidate, according to AILET results 2018 needs even 0.75 marks less than the SC category candidate of last year, to secure a BA LLB seat in the Delhi NLU.

Moving further to ST category, this year, a candidate will need 48.25 marks to confirm the NLU Delhi BA LLB seat, last year, it would have been impossible unless the candidate scores 68 marks. There is a 19.75-marks difference to be seen in the AILET Cutoff marks for ST category.

Even the specially-abled candidates applying under Person with Disability (PWD) Category would have required scoring 74 marks last year, this year the same seat was available easily if you score 42.75 which puts a difference of as much as 31.25 points from that of last year.

According to AILET 2018 results, the candidates belonging to Kashmiri Migrants (KM) Category need a score of 40.25 marks to confirm their BA LLB seat. Last year, the KM category seat was available at a 40.75-point higher score of 81 marks.

However, those who have applied for AILET 2018 under Jammu & Kashmir Residents need a score of 58 marks, last year; the candidates under this category needed just four marks higher, i.e., 62 marks to secure the BA LLB seat. Amazingly, this is the lowest difference of AILET cutoff marks to be seen amongst all the categories.

How l can l prepare for AILET entrance exam

Nikhitha Sai 9th Feb, 2020

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

4.legal aptitude .. solve the current legal problems, read the case studies given in the net that are solved before related to legal problems. The many you solve, the better it would be

5. Reasoning.. again, practice rs agarwal book, previous reasoning and non verbal questions. Solve the test papers

All the best

Regards

Nikhitha
