Analysis
  • The National Testing Agency conducted AILET 2020 on behalf of NLU Delhi on September 26.
  • The exam was held in a Computer-Based Test mode for the first time ever owning to COVID precautions.
  • According to the test-takers, AILET 2020 difficulty was moderate however, the question paper was lengthy.
  • They found it difficult to attempt all the questions in 90 minutes. 

English

  • This section comprises 35 marks. This year’s paper had 8 inferential-based questions based on a Reading Comprehension, 3 vocabulary questions, 12 grammar questions including 10 questions of improving the sentence and 2 questions relating to identifying the part of speech, 6 questions of a single cloze test set, and 6 questions related to figures of speech.
  • More questions have been raised regarding figures of speech.
  • However, they had already been introduced last year and did not surprise anyone who had already gone through last year’s paper.
  • Last year’s paper did not contain a passage; however, no one could have ruled that out as a possible set of questions, so no surprises there either.
  • This section was a bit lengthy and could have taken some extra time to solve.
  • Keeping all this in mind, candidates can easily score around marks in this section.

General Knowledge

  • This section comprises 35 marks. This paper only had 2 questions based on static GK—Geography in particular; the rest of the questions were from the current side with most questions from international affairs, person-based appointments, and science and technology. There were also some statement-based questions.
  • This section’s difficulty level was moderate and 20 would be considered a decent score in this.

Legal Aptitude

  • This section comprises 35 marks. This year’s paper had 13 questions of Legal Reasoning while the rest were from Legal GK.
  • Most of the reasoning-based questions were quite lengthy with multiple principles.
  • Most of the principles were from conventional topics and are very common in this section.
  • The Legal GK portion of this section contained questions from Economics, Polity, and legal current affairs mostly from the last quarter i.e. January to March.
  • The reasoning portion of this section was quite lengthy and would have taken quite a bit of time to solve properly.
  • The actual surprise was the Legal GK questions in this paper which were abundant in number and some required a bit of detailed knowledge.
  • This plays the deciding role in the final cut-off as these contained questions which required immense study and dedication on the student’s part during the preparation.
  • 18 would be considered a good score in this section.

Logical Reasoning

  • This section also comprises 35 marks. In this year’s paper, there was a 7-question set and 10 traditional questions of directions, blood relations, clocks, seating arrangement, and puzzles in analytical reasoning, 2 questions of syllogism, and 16 questions on critical reasoning including 10 paragraph-based questions and 3 questions each on the course of action and cause and effect.
  • Question paper on logical reasoning speaks about critical reasoning; therefore many questions under this were tricky. Overall the candidates might not have performed better in the section, however, candidates would score 18 easily without hindrance.

Mathematics

  • This section comprises 10 marks. This year, this section had 3 questions of time-distance-speed and 2 questions of mensuration with some other questions of individual topics.
  • This section was difficult; therefore the candidates might not have attempted all the questions keeping in view the negative evaluation.
  • Only 4 or 5 questions could have been possibly attempted properly while keeping the rest of the paper in mind.

Final Verdict

  • The paper was lengthy and difficult; therefore it would affect the entire cut-off.
  • No student is expected to have performed well in each section and it would have been a rather formidable challenge to attempt every possible question.
  • Legal GK and critical reasoning play the most crucial role in deciding a student’s fate with the former being a bit more important than the latter.
