Comprehensive Analysis of AILET 2023
AILET 2023 was conducted successfully today with few surprises in terms of change in pattern. While AILET 2023 was committed to its syllabus, the first thing that surprised students was merger of the English section and Logical reasoning section. Overall, the test can be considered to be moderate to difficult, thereby bringing down the cut offs. However, most students found the General knowledge and Current affairs section quite easy and doable.
There were three sections in the exam, namely English, Logical Reasoning and Current Affairs & General Knowledge. There were 50 questions from English, 70 questions from Logical reasoning and 30 Questions from General Knowledge and Current affairs.
Part I of the paper was further divided into two sections, Section A and Section B, where passages were common for English and Logical reasoning questions. Speed and accuracy were required to tackle all the sections properly as paper was a bit lengthy.
Section wise analysis
There were a total of 10 Passages in Part I of the paper and each passage had questions from English as well as Logical reasoning. There were no priniciple-fact based legal questions. However, one passage regarding jural correlatives and jural opposites was from jurisprudence. Few fact based Legal questions were also found in the General Knowledge section which had questions from Fundamental duties, EWS reservations and the number of amendments in the constitution. This was the only legal part that could be witnessed in the test and the rest of the paper was dominated by English and Logical reasoning questions.
The given passages were common for English as well as Logical reasoning questions with the first few questions being from English and the remaining from Logical reasoning. The passages were such that questions from both areas could be carved out. There were passages on inheritance, Grand Prix, Jurisprudence, popular topics like phishing and crypto mining, and one passage based on the TV series - House of Dragons. Blood relations and inheritance dominated the Logical reasoning questions.
At least 3 questions from the English section required students to give a suitable title to the passage while a few were on sentence completion. Having a good vocabulary would’ve proved quite useful in English section.
Unlike last year, there were no questions from traditional law topics like contract, torts or criminal law.
There were no questions on quant. However, a few questions on arrangement were present which were a bit lengthy but,nonetheless, doable.
General knowledge and current affairs gave a sigh of relief with predictable questions like Nobel Peace prize winner, Human rights day, Voters day, several questions from sports, current Election commissioner and Chairman of national human rights commission, India’s rank in global hunger index and world heritage sites in India. There were 12 static questions and 18 current affairs questions. Most of the questions from General knowledge section were from T.I.M.E material handouts and mocks and a T.I.M.E student would have sailed through them easily.
There was no requirement of knowledge of Legal concepts as such as there were only 3 fact based legal questions in General knowledge section except a passage on Jurisprudence which could be considered a bit advanced for law aspirants.
Logical reasoning and English was all about time management and basic understanding of the context.
Overall, given the difficulty of the questions and the amount of reading to be done, speed was required to attempt all the sections.
A score of around 85+ out of 150 could give a fair chance for students to get into NLU Delhi.
