Managing time during preparation as well as during the exam plays a very crucial role. It is essential to structure both preparation as well as attempts. The reading comprehension questions in the English section, the legal aptitude section, as well as the logical reasoning sections, are time-consuming. It is advisable to plan accordingly.
While attempting the questions, do not ponder upon the questions which you do not understand, move on to the next question without wasting any time.
Spend more time on strengthening your weaker areas, along with polishing your strong areas. The practice is the key to strengthen the weaker areas.
Following is the section-wise preparation strategy which will help you ace AILET:
This section will test your proficiency in comprehension and grammar.
You should aim at building a useful vocabulary, which cannot be done overnight. Hence, it is advisable to get into the habit of regular reading of newspaper and any magazine, which covers the contemporary events well. It will also help with the General Knowledge section.
Get your hands on a word list and try to go through the words starting from one alphabet every day. Furthermore, identify the words you are not familiar with and try to understand their meaning and practice their usage.
Learn the art of breaking up a sentence to understand its meaning more clearly. Besides, brush up the basics of grammar to tackle sentence correction and error detection based questions.
The General knowledge section in AILET contains 35 questions. This section can go a long way in giving a winning edge to the performance of a student, who has an interest in newspaper reading and is aware of the latest happenings and events. Candidates who read the newspaper daily would have found this section to be straightforward to attempt. Therefore, it may sound cliched, but the only way you can try this section well is to read the newspaper regularly.
This section will test your ability to identify patterns, understanding of logical links, and whether you can correct inconsistent statements by posing questions on syllogisms, logical sequences, analogies, etc. Most of these questions can be easily solved by following specific short cut methods or trick methods. Therefore, practice previous year papers to get a hold of the subject.
This section carries an inherent advantage. Since all the other sections cannot be worked on overnight, this is the only core area which is new for an AILET aspirant. So, an experienced AILET mentor can go a long way in helping a student in getting a high score in this section. As a result, this section can play a defining role in determining an aspirant’s overall section, since it also happens to be the tie-breaker in final results.
The recent trends reflect that most of the questions will be Principle-fact based. The best way to attempt these questions is, do not make any assumptions outside the given legal principle and fact and stick to the theory that the ‘ the principle is always right’
The legal fact and legal G.K questions can be attempted well by identification and memorisation of critical constitutional articles, landmark and recent judgments and new laws/ amendments.
This section requires speed, especially the principle- fact questions, so practice mock tests and previous question papers.
