150 Marks. 150 difficult questions. 90 minutes.
If life at law school is excruciatingly unfair, the All India Law Entrance Test by National Law School – Delhi is THE best forewarner to an aspirant.
I remember my AILET – it was one of the few exams that I enjoyed doing, and that was for good reason.
If you are afraid of Static GK being an inherent part of AILET this time as they have explicitly mentioned it – it’s too much of an assumption. Current Affairs is what NLUD has always liked (like everything sensible), it’s going to stay that way.
Second, the most important section in AILET is NOT Legal – as it is of moderate/easy difficulty level. It is, Logical Reasoning – almost everything is/will be verbal and difficult. Whatever they say about hard work is all something that will be tested here or not, I am not sure. What will be tested is your intelligence.
So, I’d suggest you first tackle the 35 GK questions within 5-7 minutes (it IS possible) and then quickly move on to Reasoning, Legal, English and Math – in that order. Remember, efficiency shall be the key to you cracking the paper.
Also, you need to have a very cool mind, you CANNOT afford to lose your patience, in fact, I’d say that you should actually be able to enjoy the paper.
This is a message that I am writing before-hand as I might not be able to do so on the 30th (Owing to the CG party that we’ve organized for the people who worked for the website, and also some exam, I think). So, all the best. Remember, enjoy the paper.
Also, don’t try to cheat. Not that it’s unethical or anything, but just a waste of time. You won’t get anything substantive out of such attempts.
Memorize as many questions as you can, and post them as comments here. It might help your juniors.
Once again, all the best. Kick some ass. Make us proud.
