  • English Language
  • Current Affairs & General Knowledge
  • Logical Reasoning

In AILET 2025, 150 multiple-choice questions will be asked. These questions will be based on passages of understanding. 

While each question is worth one mark and 0.25 marks are deducted for each incorrect response. AILET exam question papers have become longer in recent years, making it impossible for candidates to complete the test within 90 minutes. This is why this year the total time given to complete the paper is 120 minutes, a 30-minute increase from previous years. 

English Language

The English component of the exam will consist of 50 questions. The questions are intended to assess your grammar, vocabulary, and comprehension abilities. As a result, solving the previous year's question papers for the AILET exam every week can help you understand the sort of questions offered and the difficulty level.
