AILET 2017 analysis

AILET 2017 stuck to its historical reputation. ‘Oh no’ was the most common expression of most aspirants. It was test of selecting right questions & maintaining a strict discipline of time while attempting lengthy questions. Initial 5-8 minutes spent in screening the entire paper would have definitely helped to identify simpler questions/sections. A-B-C analysis was a must for smart question selection. This would have avoided a lot of time wastage by getting stuck in ‘C’ type questions, which should have been attempted in last 5 minutes. Students who kept hunting for scoring areas till the end will have a major advantage over others. Let us look at section level feedback

English – This was probably the simplest section without many surprises. Word meaning based, synonyms-antonyms, vocabulary based, para jumbles, paragraph based fill in the blanks & grammar were tested areas. There were no typical RC passages as such

Legal Aptitude – This was a mix of principle-fact & assertion-reasoning type questions. A few questions were quite lengthy. There were many reasoning questions on contracts, whereas 8-9 LGK questions were based on constitution (e.g. Mental health bill), business & trade (e.g. GST). Students needed a good level of preparation to crack Legal GK

Maths – This was another straight forward section without many surprises. Questions were a little verbose as usual, but those identified right questions could do a smart attempt without spending too much time

Logical reasoning – This was the lengthiest & hence perceived as the toughest section. While questions on coding-decoding were easy, arrangement based questions were time consuming. 4-5 questions on family tree & 2-3 questions on directions were simple. Quite a few inference based questions also consumed a lot of time. While puzzles were time consuming, series based questions were simple

General awareness – This section was tricky & covered a few uncommon areas, hence students were taken by surprise. Most of the questions were from the second half of 2016. Most of the questions on Current Affairs were from Banking and Economy like. Science and technology dominated the static GK part. Static GK had a decent coverage.

Overall difficulty level was not quite different from AILET 2016 & cut-offs should not change much i. e cut off should be 100 - 106 for general category
