National Law University Delhi (NLU-D) conducted All India Law Entrance Test (AILET) 2018 on May 6, 2018 (Sunday) from 3 PM to 4.30 PM. Approximately 18,000 candidates appeared for the paper-pencil based test in 40 exam centres across 21 cities of India. 

The maximum marks for a student to score in the examination are 150. Candidates who secure minimum cut-off marks get admission in Ph.D., LLM and B.A. LLB programmes offered by NLUs across the country. After the test was conducted, we received mixed reactions from students regarding the AILET question paper. While some candidates found AILET 2018 to be tough, some others found it to be of moderate difficulty level. 

This year, the exam threw several surprises, but the biggest of them was in the AILET exam pattern, which had a negative marking of 0.25 marks.

According to exam experts, the overall difficulty level of the paper was moderate while the section-wise difficulty level was moderate to tough. 

This year, Mathematics turned out to be the toughest section as it comprised of questions that had never been seen before.

In General Knowledge, the questions were based on the events as recent as those happened in the month of May. This section in the paper required students to keep themselves updated with the latest happenings.

The English section had more questions related to idioms, grammatical errors, and General English. This year, this section had no Reading Comprehension passages, which were present in the paper last year.

Students found the Legal Aptitude section comprising of Legal General Knowledge questions quite easy. AILET 2018 takers found the Legal Reasoning questions tough to answer as the paper was quite lengthy.

With the introduction of negative marking of 0.25 marks for wrong answers, the cut-off for AILET 2018 could be around the range of 90-92 marks.

AILET answer key 2018 will be out on May 7 and AILET results 2018 will be announced on May 24. Based on the results, candidates will be shortlisted for the counselling process conducted by NLU Delhi for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate law programmes.

AILET 2017 Exam Analysis

National Law University, Delhi conducted All India Law Entrance Test (AILET) 2017 on May 7 in 20 test centres across the country. The examination started at 3:00 PM, and continued until 4.30 PM.

After the examination, some of the experts were of the opinion that the AILET 2017 was difficult compared to other law entrance examinations like LSAT India and CLAT. AILET 2017 was difficult, and the experts termed it as the toughest paper since 2013.

After taking the examination, students expressed their dissatisfaction, as they were not able to attempt all the questions on time. Most of the students felt that the paper was lengthy and tough. They were of the opinion that 90 minutes were not sufficient to answer 150 questions.

Even though the paper was difficult, students hoped that the cut-offs would be lower as compared to the previous year.

A student who appeared for the exam said that the G.K and Logical Reasoning sections were a little difficult while English was easy. The Legal Aptitude section was also on the easier side. However, he faced difficulty in managing the time.

Another student expressed that she was not able to complete the Mathematics section, and left most of the questions. She also expressed that GK and Logical Reasoning were tough. Managing time became a challenging task during the examination, she added.

One of the examinees gave a mixed reaction on the paper. He said that the paper was neither difficult nor easy, terming it as average. All the questions were tough except English. He was unable to complete all the sections on time.

From the above opinions, it is evident that the nature of questions consumed more time due to which students failed to answer all the questions.
