AILET 2018 Analysis

AILET 2018 Analysis

AILET 2018 stuck to its historical reputation…‘Oh no’ was the most common expression of most aspirants. Lengthy nature, absence of common question types & complexity of questions in certain sections made the test look intimidating. Initial few minutes spent in screening the entire paper would have helped students to identify questions to be attempted first before moving on to lengthy or complex ones. Let us look at section level feedback

English

This section threw most surprises. There were no RC passages or parajumbles in entire section. There weren’t many purely vocab based questions either. There were quite a few questions around figures of speech, commonly confused words & identification of sentences with correct punctuation. In short, the section was quite heavy on grammar. Also, there were 3 questions on usage of one word in different ways in the form of match the columns of word usage & sentences. In general, the section was time consuming due to introduction of new types of questions in good quantity. The difficulty level was moderate to high

Legal Aptitude

No Assertion-Reason type questions were asked in this section. There were around 25 Legal Reasoning questions of principle-fact nature. In many questions, facts were quite lengthy (Almost page long). Some facts were also made complicated & twisted along the way.  This made the section look quite lengthy. Most questions were from torts & contracts. There were a very few questions from criminal law. Around 10 questions were based on static LGK, but they were manageable. No legal maxims were asked. Section was moderate-difficult

Mathematics

This was a straight forward section without surprises. Questions were spread across standard topics like simple-compound interest, ratio-proportion, mensuration, profit & loss, probability. 7-8 Q was a good attempt

Logical reasoning

This looked like a representative section with topics like circular arrangement (5Q), matrix arrangements (5-6 Q) and series (5-6 Q). Verbal reasoning questions had paragraph based deductive reasoning, definitely true-definitely false type Q, statement-conclusion, strong-weak argument type Q questions. This made the section a little time consuming & moderately difficult

General awareness

Almost 80% questions from this section were direct in nature, based on current affairs & were easy-moderate type. CA questions were dominated by world news & forums, government & politics, inventions etc. Static GK questions were from sports or miscellaneous topics

To summarize, lengthy nature of multiple sections, combined with less scope of intelligent guessing & introduction of negative marking made AILET 2018 look tougher than AILET 2017. Cut-offs should drop to 81-85 for general category by the end of second round
