The AILET 2021 Paper was held on 30th July, 2021 and proved to be a standard AILET Paper. The difficulty level was moderate and similar to previous years. There were no surprises in terms of the number of questions and marking scheme.
Coming to the section-wise analysis, the English section was varied in terms of the types of questions but easy in terms of the difficulty. The number of questions in the section was 35.
The Legal Reasoning section also had 35 questions as expected and was moderately difficult. The difficulty level was in part due to the trivia-like legal GK which was asked in the section (9 questions). Despite the presence of the legal GK questions, the section proved to be quite lengthy.
The Logical Reasoning section was very easy and had both Analytical Reasoning and Critical Reasoning questions. There were a wide variety of questions with Critical Reasoning Questions being dominant. The number of questions remained the same at 35.
