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:

AILET 2021 Section wise Analysis

English

For students who are well versed with vocabulary or practised for it, this section was nothing but a cakewalk for them. Infact, the section was a mixed bag with a variety of questions covering multiple topics. The section was easy and any student could easily attempt 29-30 questions out of 35. The section was not just easy, but also time saving. Unlike previous years, this time the English section did not demand too much time from the students.

General Knowledge

One of the most non-intimidating sections for AILET 2021 was the General Knowledge section. Yes, non-intimidating and GK does not exactly go hand in hand, but such was the case this time. The general knowledge section was easy and any student could have easily attempted 29-30 questions with an idle score of 30+ in this question.

This section was a special delight to CL-LST students. More than 10 questions were from our AILET Special GK Webinar and around 30+ from Manthan and mock tests.

Legal Reasoning

It feels like the NLUs really want you to know the concepts better. Like CLAT 2021, the legal reasoning section of AILET 2021 was also centred on general concepts (cakewalk for our CL-LST students who already practiced these concepts thoroughly in class).  All the concepts asked were familiar to students. There were also legal GK questions, but again, no bills or amendments or those horrible acts and sections. The legal GK was also easy for the students. 

An attempt of 29-30 would be regarded as a good attempt for the students with an idle score of 25+.

Please note that there was a typo error in this section. However, the same could be easily figured out by the students. 

Logical Reasoning

Another easy and scoring section for AILET 2021 students, this section was easy with 26 questions from verbal and critical reasoning and 9 questions from analytical reasoning. Any student could easily attempt 30 questions to get a good score of 25+.

Overall, the paper could very well be regarded as one of the easiest AILET papers of all time, which obviously is a surprise for many considering that the AILET paper is never easy. 

Students who had prepared with CL-LST would have found GK to be a cakewalk as almost all the questions were from Manthan and Masterstroke. Our experiments at giving different kinds of mock papers seemed to have paid off as our students found the paper lengthy but doable.
