NLU Delhi declares AILET 2017 Results on May 24; Female candidate tops with 100 marks

AILET-Result-NewsThe Results of the All India Law Entrance Test (AILET) 2017 have been declared by National Law University (NLU) Delhi on May 24. The exam has been topped by a female law aspirant, Dhanistha Mukesh Mittal, who also achieved the rare distinction of being the only candidate to score 100 marks this year. It must be noted that AILET offers admissions to BA LLB (Hons.), LLM and PhD programmes at NLU Delhi and the results declared on May 24 are only for the undergraduate law programme. Candidates will be able to check the category wise results and the merit list for AILET 2017 through the links given on this page.


Conducted on May 7, AILET 2017 saw as many as 17,054 applicants applying for admissions to the 83 seats (10 for foreign nationals) offered in the Five Year Integrated BA LLB (Hons.) programme, as per AILET 2017 Convener, Dr. GS Bajpai. The exam was held in an offline mode and the question paper was set out of a total of 150 marks, with candidates being awarded one mark for each right answer. There was no negative marking. While AILET has developed a reputation for being one of the country’s tougher law entrance exams, Careers360 had reported on the exam day about how candidates found this year’s paper to be considerably tougher than those of preceding years. This is also reflected in the scores achieved by the candidates. While last year’s topper, Karan Dhalla scored 119 marks, only one candidate was able to attain the three figure mark this year and also subsequently topped the exam.


Earlier, the declaration of AILET 2017 Result had been postponed by NLU Delhi from May 17 to May 24.
