SET 2017 Exam Analysis



The Symbiosis Entrance Test (SET) 2017 for admission to their Law programme at various SLS campuses was conducted today on May 6, 2017, all over India. The pattern of the paper was largely as expected and similar to the one specified in the brochure. Much to the relief of students, the paper was fairly easy. And the cut-offs would remain more or less same as last years.

As given in the notification on the official website, the paper had five sections of Logical Reasoning, Legal Reasoning, Analytical Reasoning, Reading Comprehension and General Knowledge. A total of 150 questions, to be attempted in 150 minutes, were divided equally over the five sections. Each question had 4 options and carried one mark each. There was no negative marking for incorrect attempts. Many of the questions, particularly in the General Knowledge, Legal Aptitude and Reasoning Sections, are discussed in the LST material almost in a similar manner.

Analytical Reasoning
This section consisted of various question types such as series, odd one out, assertion-reasoning, statement conclusion etc. The level of difficulty of this section was medium. Though Symbiosis doesn’t mention Maths as a separate section, but questions based on Percentage, Time and Work, Averages, Ratio & Proportion asked in this section can be directly referred to as Maths. A score in the range of 20-25 can be considered as good score in this section.

Legal Reasoning

This section was based more on legal reasoning and were very easy There were also around 10 questions wherein facts were provided but the related legal principles were missing, so can say that it was more of knowledge based. For Example- Question stated that Two friends sat on the roof of the train, with their own will and accident happened, so will the case fall under VNFI, Contributory negligence and two other options were given. A score in the range of 24-25 could be considered good.

Logical Reasoning

This section consisted of various question types such as Statement Assumption, Statement Conclusion, Strong and Weak Arguments, drawing conclusions from given statements, Analogy, Syllogisms, Course of Action and Critical Reasoning.. The questions were easy and this section could have been attempted in about 30-35 minutes. A score of around 22-23 can be considered a good score in this section.

Reading Comprehension

The passages came from a variety of topics and the length of each was relatively small. Most of the questions were direct and could be answered easily with direct reference to the passage. The overall level of questions in this section was easy and an attempt of 24-25 questions can be considered a good attempt.

General Knowledge

Questions in this section can be divided between Static and Current GK. There were around 5-6 questions from static GK and rest were from current affairs. The level of difficulty of this section can be  ranged as  moderate one and some of the current affairs questions were quite tricky and twisted  and was difficult for the answer to recall the same. A score of 20-25 in this section could be considered good.

Overall, it was an easy paper to boost up the confidence before AILET and CLAT. The cutoff for the WAT-PI round is expected as following:
