“This year's AILET exam followed a similar pattern to 2022 but had its own challenges. The test had more passage-based questions and was longer than last year's. It lasted for 120 minutes instead of the usual 90, with 150 questions to answer. The questions were moderate in difficulty, focusing a lot on context, and each question had its own passage, which made the test longer than the one in 2023." said Harsh Gagrani, Co-founder LegaEdge by Toprankers.

On expected cut-offs, he further said, "The expected cutoff for General category students might be around 78-83 marks, which is higher than last year's by about 10%, but a bit lower than the cutoff for 2022, showing how the difficulty of the exam has changed over recent years."

Here is the detailed AILET 2024 exam analysis.

Section A: English Language

This section, consisting of 50 questions carrying 50 marks, presented a moderate level of difficulty in comparison to the previous year. The questions varied, encompassing grammar and language, contributing to a balanced assessment.

Section B: Current Affairs & General Knowledge

In contrast to the previous year's easier set of questions, the 30-question, 30-mark segment this year posed a moderate challenge. The paper leaned heavily towards current affairs, interspersed with some static questions. Notably, economics took a forefront position, testing students' understanding of important concepts. The mix of static and current questions aligned with the preparation patterns observed in the Common Law Admission Test (CLAT).

Section C: Logical Reasoning

Marked as the lengthiest and most challenging section, the 70-question, 70-mark segment traversed from moderate to difficult terrain. Noteworthy was the introduction of legal-oriented principal-fact-based questions, absent in the previous two years. Critical reasoning involves long, statement-based inquiries, along with an emphasis on assumptions and inference, albeit straightforward in nature. The analytical reasoning (AR) section highlighted a substantial presence of syllogisms and coding-decoding queries.

The section's moderate to difficult nature stemmed from the individual question complexities, rendering it a bit lengthy. Additionally, the inclusion of AR questions seemed to have caused confusion among candidates. Notably, the previous year's difficulty level was rated as moderate, signifying a considerable shift in this year's assessment.

As per the revised AILET exam pattern, the exam duration has been increased from 90 minutes to 120 minutes. So, this should give the students more time to complete the test. AILET 2024 will be conducted in offline mode at exam centres across the country. Meanwhile, candidates can check the previous year's AILET exam analysis to make themselves familiar with previous years' exams.
