They opined that the question paper was set logically and sequentially on the basis of the subjects as adduced. Proper weightage has been given to each of the above subjects, hence the candidates if they have prepared properly will not find any hardship during the examination.
The question paper for the year 2020 comprised of 5 subjects and the analysis of the experts thereon is as under:
This component has 40 questions and each question carries one mark. Experts have focused more on Reading Comprehension, Grammar, Vocabulary, Synonyms, Antonyms and Idioms and the rest have also been highlighted with lesser weightage. Reading passage obviously is one of the important task under language proficiency. Grammar at the level of UG even earlier was forming a part of the question paper. Therefore the candidates if they have a grip over language proficiency they can easily do without any confusion.
ACLAT examination conducted in 2019 by the Alliance University has another subject entitled General Awareness. The question paper contained questions more on Indian Constitution, Contemporary issues at the national and international level with reference to micro and macro environment. Indian culture is one of the highlights of the question paper. This is so perhaps Alliance University is expected to know about the knowledge of the candidates in socio-cultural environment.
