    How to attempt the AILET 2020 paper?

    How to attempt the AILET 2020 paper?

    Spend some time reviewing and skimming through the parts of the question paper. Look for the section that you are most confident about. Remember the given points when attempting AILET 2020:

    1. Prioritize exam sections: The paper includes 150 questions that are grouped into five sections. You must be conscious of those parts that are your strengths among these five. First seek to seek to answer questions from those sections. This will boost your performance level immensely because you will have more and more confidence to then answer any problem. 
    2. Read questions completely: The AILET examination is considered to be quite long, but experts also share the fact that the questions asked in this examination are extremely difficult. So, avoid rushing through the posed questions. Take some time to carefully read the questions, and then give the answers.
    3. Keep a check of time: For AILET 2020, adhere to the time management plan you developed during preparation. It is advised that you assign time for each question and try to stick to it for the whole test period. 
    4. Solve the sections of GK and Current Affairs first: Greater weightage is granted to current affairs in AILET exam paper as compared to GK questions. Even though the standard of questions posed in this examination section is supposed to be higher than that posed in CLAT or LSAT, it is still recommended that you start your examination by solving GK and Current Affairs questions as this is one section where you can be most confident of the answers and even score complete marks.

    Section-wise Attempting Tips for AILET 2020 

    1. General Knowledge

    Experts recommend that this section be solved first. It is the section where candidates are able to answer any question in less than one minute.Thus, candidates could build time here to solve the remaining questions of the exam. Also, when one is not sure of the answers to any questions in this section, then he/she can leave them for review and return to them after all the other questions in the paper have been solved.

    1. English

    Attempt the English section second. Questions relating to grammar and spellings require much less time. So, it is best to answer them first. Questions about para jumbles are highly scoring and so you should answer those questions next in the English section. The test is likely to have a minimum of one passage of comprehension. This will take slightly more time than the grammar questions. Quickly skim through the reading comprehension, and attain an idea of what it all is about. Start reading the questions after this, then go back to the comprehension where you think the answer to that particular question is and answer it. 

    1. Logical Reasoning 

    Next, attempt the Reasoning section. Read each question carefully in this section, and make sure you always read each and every answer choice very closely. The questions in this section mainly relate to quantitative ability and logical-based analytical reasoning. 

    1. Legal Aptitude 

    Then, attempt the Legal Aptitude section. Read the questions very carefully in this section, and seek to understand the key points of the statements posed to you. This will aid candidates to score well in AILET's Legal Aptitude section.

    1. Basic Mathematics

    Finally, attempt the Mathematics section. The questions in the section on maths are asked from the syllabus of class 9 and class 10. If you cannot answer any question at any point, then just skip the problem and get back to it later if time permits. 

    Apart from being difficult to attempt, AILET 2020 is essentially a speed test. Aspirants are encouraged to devise their exam day strategy by bearing their strengths and weaknesses in mind and then make full use of their strengths to score well during the exam.
