AILET is considered to be one of the toughest legal entrance exam of India. Talking about the toughest section in AILET 2018, Khadav mentions that this year Maths turned out to be the toughest section with types of questions never seen before.

 

Moving onto the Current Affairs section from General Knowledge, The CrackCLAT Tutorials remarks that questions in General Knowledge came majorly from Current Affairs sections, where the events were as recent as those happened in the months of May first week. The AILET 2018 takers needed to keep themselves updated with the most recent happenings.

 

The English section surprisingly did not see any Reading Comprehension passages compared to the previous year. Further, the section carried more questions related to idioms, grammatical errors and General English.

 

Legal Aptitude section comprising Legal General Knowledge questions came out to be easy but Legal Reasoning turned out to be the lengthiest. AILET 2018 takers had a tough time answering the Legal Reasoning questions.

 

The exam expert also mentioned that there were two puzzle questions carrying 9 and 5 questions which made this the lengthiest section of all.

Rajendra Khadav remarks that with the introduction of negative marking in NLU Delhi administered law exam, the AILET cutoff could be around the range of 90-92 marks.

 

AILET 2018 Analysis by Harsh Gagrani, Director, LegalEdge Tutorial

 

Harsh Gagrani, Director of LegalEdge Tutorial mentions, “The exam was difficult but were on expected lines. However, there has been the introduction of 0.25 marks negative marking for wrong answers, which was not there until last year. In terms of the exam structure and syllabus, it was similar to that of previous years. Legal Aptitude was the toughest section whereas GK and Maths were the easier sections.”

 

Talking about the sectional traits, Gagrani says, “English section was grammar based. There was no question on Reading Comprehension. Majority of the GK section questions were on Current Affairs and few questions on Static GK, from Science. The Legal Aptitude section was too lengthy. There were around 20 current legal knowledge questions. Logical Reasoning section had a couple of lengthy and tough puzzles and around 10-11 Critical Reasoning questions. Overall this section was easy to moderate. Mathematics was also of moderate level.”

 

AILET 2018 results will be announced on May 24, followed by the admission counselling process for NLU Delhi undergraduate and postgraduate law programmes.
