AILET 2020 – Analysis of All India Law Entrance Test (AILET)2020:
AILET 2020 was not surprising; if anyone has been following AILET question papers and CLAT Possible’s analyses over the years, the nature of this year’s question paper was par for the course. CLAT Possible talked to hundreds of its students to get a picture of what the question paper was like, and the following are the findings:
To begin with, the computer interface was smooth and user-friendly. Switching between questions and different sections of the exam was comfortable. The fears from the time of the mock exam that switching between sections would not be possible turned out to be unfounded, much to the relief of students who often rely on their ability to switch between sections to optimise scoring on the basis of their strengths and weaknesses. Some issues about hardware glitches, with mouse related problems being most common among them, were reported. We will wait and see how NLU Delhi and NTA react to those issues.
It was reported across several centres that the invigilators were not well-instructed and were somewhat insensitive. Cases of invigilation exercises – like taking signatures, photographs etc. – being carried out during the exam were reported, which caused disturbance to a lot of candidates.
The General Knowledge section was reported to be very easy. While most questions in this section were based on current affairs, some static GK questions were also present. A couple of science questions also made it to the question paper – and, as mentioned before, that’s standard for AILET. Some topics on which questions were asked in this section were Academy Awards, the Delimitation Commission, Anti-Defection law, Pandemic Act etc. All questions, CLAT Possible students have reported, could have been easily answered if a student had diligently studied CP’s material and attended classes.

The Logical Reasoning section was divided, as usual, between two parts: analytical reasoning and critical reasoning. The former had around 20 questions, with a couple of lengthy arrangement-based sets of questions. Other questions in the analytical reasoning section were from standard topics like coding-decoding, clocks, directions, blood relations etc. The critical reasoning section included around 15 questions on the standard statement-assumption, premise-conclusion, inference, statement-conclusion etc. formats of questions. The difficulty of this section was reported to be moderate.
The English section comprised of one reading-comprehension based set of five questions, some questions on grammar, and others on vocabulary. Words like abnegation, French leave, blandishment, obdurate, bellicose, quiescent, irascible etc. were used to check candidates’ vocabulary. Again, it must be noted that these words are provided in the CLAT Possible material for vocabulary, and have been discussed in classes – a diligent student at CP would have rejoiced on looking at these words!
The Legal Aptitude section, too, did not pose any surprises, and was divided, as usual, between principle-reasoning based questions and legal general knowledge questions. The former were around 20 in number, while the remaining were of the latter kind. Principles were straightforward, and were based mostly in tort and contract laws. It was reported that there were no constitutional law-based questions, which was a little surprising. The legal general knowledge questions were based on topics like Citizenship Amendment Act, Epidemic Act, Essential Commodities Act etc. This section was reported to be lengthy and tough, given the length of not just the fact-situations, but also of the often-confusing options.
The Quantitative Aptitude section was reported to be on the tougher side. Involving a lot of calculations, the questions came from topics such as probability, combinations, profit & loss, compound interest, time-speed-distance etc.
Based on the reviews that we have received, we believe that the cut-offs should be in the following range:
