    AILET and CLAT both are the two most sought-after law entrance exams of the country. AILET stands for All India Law Entrance Test and CLAT stands for Common Law Admission Test. While both the tests serve the law aspirants, there are few factors that make them different from each other.

    Being the most popular law exams across the country, students often face a dilemma of choosing between AILET or CLAT. So, how do you decide for which exam you should go for in the first place?

    To shrug off this confusion we bring you a comprehensive analysis of both the exams. Let us begin: -


    Scope and Participating Institutes

    AILET vs CLAT : Scope and Participating Institutes

    This is the first major factor that differentiates these two examinations. And this is one thing in which CLAT is way ahead of AILET.

    • CLAT offers admission to 21 National Universities and 52 private colleges which participate in this test.
    • On the other hand, AILET has just one participating institute, and that is National Law University (NLU), Delhi along with a few other colleges accepting AILET Score.

    We have already seen that AILET has only participating institute, NLU Delhi, and it itself conducts this exam. On the other hand, CLAT is conducted on rotational basis by various institutes participating in it.

    Note:For the academic session 2020-21, CLAT will be conducted by National University of Study and Research n Law, Ranchi on May 10, 2020 in online mode.

    Level of Competition

    AILET vs CLAT: Level of Competition

    This is another deciding factor that can greatly influence your decision to take any of these tests. The level of competition in both the tests differs drastically.

    • In CLAT, around 50000 students appear for nearly 2500 seats in all the National Universities under it. This means that the success rate in CLAT revolves around 6%.
    • On the other hand, AILET has around 80 seats for undergraduate and postgraduate course respectively and more than 18000 students appear for this test. Which means the success rate is around 0.006%.

    This clearly indicates that the level of competition is huge for AILET. So, if you are appearing for both the exams, you are 1000 times more likely to get a seat under CLAT when compared to AILET.

    Level of Difficulty 

    AILET vs CLAT: Level of Difficulty 

    Well, at first sight it seems quite obvious that AILET is tougher than CLAT. In CLAT, only General Awareness and Legal Aptitude can get you half of the maximum marks, but it is not the case in AILET.

    Also, in AILET, time allotted per question is much lesser than CLAT. We have seen the success rates of both the papers as well, so statistics actually say that AILET is much difficult than CLAT.

    Both the exams offer great opportunities in this amazing field of Law. Since the syllabus is same, it is never bad to go for both of them. It is suggested to select the exam according to your preferences and give in your best shot.
