SLAT has a unique question paper pattern as it tests an aspirant's knowledge of the subject of Analytical Reasoning rather than Mathematics. On the other hand, other prominent law entrances likes CLAT, AILET have a section dedicated to the subject of mathematics. All the sections have an equal weightage of 15 marks.
SLAT as an entrance examination easily qualifies as moderate to difficult on the scale of difficulty. As an aspirant you must work on honing your reasoning skills as there are two separate sections testing an aspirant on logical and analytical reasoning.
