AILET 2021 Analysis

Like a breath of fresh air! This is what the students felt after their AILET 2021 examinations. AILET 2021 was conducted on July 30, 2021 across many centres in India. The examination was held in offline mode with the proper safety protocols in check. This time the students got to take not just the question paper, but also a carbon copy of their marked OMR sheets home to do a quick evaluation of their performance.

Compared to previous years, the paper could very well be termed as easy. However, considering the length of the paper, we can say that it might have acted as a bit of a deterrent for the students.
AILET 2021 had a total of 150 questions to be attempted in a time span of 90 minutes. The negative marking scheme was also there, but given the difficulty level of the paper, which was Easy, the marking scheme should not act as so much of a deterrent to the students.

A quick glance at the paper reveals the following:
