    Previous year's AILET exam analysis by LegalEdge

    The students faced an element of surprise while attempting this year's paper. As the pattern was changed, the arrangement of questions startled the students a bit. However, the majority of the sections were still added to the examination, with Mathematics being an exception. English and Logical reasoning section were lengthy compared to the previous years, but the overall difficulty of the paper was easy to moderate.

    English language - Easy

    The English section was more inclined toward reading comprehensive patterns. This made the section quite lengthy with a diverse range of genres. The students who prepared well for the CLAT examination could easily get hold of this section. The students were thrown away by the lack of standalone questions on vocabulary or grammar, which have been the part of AILET examination for a long time. Although there were some out-of-the-box questions, the overall difficulty level of the section was on the easier end.

    General knowledge and current affairs

    The General knowledge section mainly comprised current affairs of the last year, with very few questions on Legal and General knowledge. As per the previous trend, this section's difficulty level was comparatively easy. The section was a piece of cake for the students who had thoroughly covered the current affairs in the newspaper during their preparation.

    Logical reasoning

    As expected, the Logical reasoning section was inclusive of questions from critical, analytical and legal reasoning. With around 40 questions, the primary emphasis was placed on critical reasoning, and the section was highly conceptual. The questions in critical reasoning were mostly statement and para-based, covering the topics like assumption and conclusion. In addition, the analytical section was spread over 20 questions, wherein the questions were asked from syllogism or data arrangement sets. Lastly, the remaining questions were on legal aptitude, which was very easy.

    Frequently Asked Question (FAQs)

    1. Was AILET 2023 tough?

    As per the candidates, AILET 2023 was slightly difficult. The AILET questions were asked from comprehension passages for English and logical reasoning sections. Only the general knowledge section was slightly easy.

    2. What is a good score in AILET 2023?

    A score of 90+ is a good score in AILET 2023. The AILET cut-offs are expected to be lower than last year.

    3. Which section was the most difficult in AILET 2023?

    The logical reasoning section was the most difficult in AILET 2023.

    4. When will AILET 2023 answer key be released?
