AIl India Law Entrance Test is an entrance exam for admission into National Law University Delhi. It is conducted itself by NLU Delhi, which is one of the top law colleges of India. They offer courses like BA.LLB(Hons) for the undergraduate and LLM for the post graduate students. In this article, we will discuss AILET 2019 Exam analysis i.e. the difficulty level for each section, marks distribution, etc.

According to AILET 2020 updates, the exam is going to be conducted on August 18, 2020. This year the paper will not be conducted through pen-paper mode, instead it will be an online computer based exam.

  5. For every correct answer 1 mark was given and for wrong answer -0.25 marks were deducted.
  6. There were no sectional time limits which may sound like a strategy to solve this paper but a paper based test like this requires additional time to mark answers on the OMR sheet.
  7. One must be careful about the time planning as it is a speed based test where you have 150 questions to solve in 90 minutes.

Now let us start with the AILET Exam analysis section by section

A good attempt would be 110 and above questions and an ideal score would be 85 and above. 

This was all about the AILET 2019 Exam analysis. I always say to get good marks in any paper you need to have a strategy. Especially this exam needs a lot of strategy and preparation it might be about managing time or about solving how many questions in the each section. Prepare a good strategy and solve past papers from 2016 to 2019.If you do these things with 100% dedication, no one can stop you to get into the NLU Delhi. Believe in yourself and give it your best shot. Good Luck!
