Revise what has been read-

Solve previous years question papers-

Preparing for an examination and actually appearing for it are quite different experiences. Familiarize yourself to the examination pattern by solving previous years question paper. Question papers of AILET 2010-2018 are available for download at Free AILET Law Careers360 Sample Paper Store.

Admit card download-

Those who have not downloaded their AILET admit card, should check and download it. Do not wait till the last day, because, if there is any discrepancy in the admit card you will not get a chance to correct it and can be barred from entering the exam hall. In case of any error on the admit card, contact the AILET officials to rectify the same.

Visit the exam centre-

A major lot of candidates in India travel to some other city to give the examination. AILET 2019 will be held across the 21 exam centres of AILET 2019. So if you are one of these aspirants who will have to cover an extra mile to reach your destination, you should start early. Do not make plans to travel on the day of the examination, and reach a day in advance. With the hustle and bustle on the examination day, chances are that your train/bus/etc may be delayed. Reach the exam city and choose an accommodation near the exam centre. Visit the exam centre so as to avoid any delays on the exam day.

This practice must be followed by every candidate. Even those who stay in the same city should make it a point to visit the exam centre a day in advance.

Pack a small bag for the exam day

“What a sword is to a soldier, a pen is to a writer.”

Make a list of the important things you need to carry on the day of the examination and set them aside. Keep everything ready the night before the examination. A small list of what you should carry is given below

  • Admit card

  • Two recent passport sized photographs ( may be needed if the picture on the admit card is not clear, but it is better to carry them anyway)

  • A valid photo identity proof ( such as a passport, driving licence, aadhar card, voter Id, etc)

  • Minimum 2 pens, can be blue or black - always carry an extra pen during any examination. Your lucky pen might ditch you on the most important day leaving you helpless.

  • A pencil - you may or may not need it, but it is always good to carry one. You can mark the questions you are not sure about on the OMR sheet with a pencil. You can later change the answer if you want to. As AILET 2019 has negative marking scheme, it will definitely prove beneficial in case of those tricky puzzlers.

  • A bottle of water to beat the heat

At last - AILET 2019 Exam day guidelines

AILET 2019 will be conducted on Sunday May 5, 2019 from 10.00 am to 11.30 am. The important dos and don'ts for the exam day are

  • The first thing that you should take care of is yourself! This reminds me of a quote from the spiritual teacher Dalai Lama, “Sleep is the best meditation”. Get a proper sleep the night before the examination. If you wake up fresh, your mind will work better. A tired body cannot do physical labor, similarly a tired brain will not be able to deliver its best on the exam day.

  • Check whether you have kept everything that you need to carry with yourself. The most important guideline for AILET 2019 exam day is to check the things that you need to carry with you on the day of the examination -

    • Admit card

    • Passport size photographs

    • Photo Id proof

    • And stationary

  • A wise man once said “The mind is like water. When it’s turbulent, it’s difficult to see. When it’s calm, everything becomes clear.” It implies that if your mind is calm, you will be able to think clearly. During the examination, if you stay calm and focused you will be able to complete the examination sooner and it will definitely increase your accuracy.

  • Reach the exam centre at least an hour before your examination. Though the examination is on a Sunday, you can never predict traffic. Also, if you reach on time, you get ample time to go through the seat arrangement pattern and find your seat.

  • Do not carry any electronic devices with you such as mobile phone, calculator, smart watch, etc. These are not allowed inside the examination hall.

  • Do not talk to other candidates during the examination. If you have any doubts, raise your hand and ask the invigilator.

  • Read the instructions given on the question paper booklet.

  • Do not mark anything on the question paper. Do the rough work in the space provided.

  • Lastly, do not be a hurry to get out of the examination room. Check your answer sheet thoroughly after completing the examination.

We hope you found the article useful and we wish you all the best for your examination.
