First of all, unlike the UG question paper, there are no official details published about AILET PG LLM 2018 Syllabus. So candidates will have to look at analysis of the previous year’s papers for clues as to what the exam will be all about.
The official announcement on the NLU / AILET website just states that “There are 100 multiple choice Objective Type Questions of one mark each which has to be answered in the OMR Sheet. There is One Essay Question of 50 Marks which has to be answered in Separate Sheet.” So, the entrance exam will be for 150 marks.
Apart from this generic statement, the other interesting footnote is that ‘Negative marking’ has returned to AILET. 0.25% or 1/4th mark will be deducted for every wrong answer, whereas there is no penalty for unanswered questions.
If you Google a little, you’ll find several websites publishing so called ‘syllabus’ for AILET PG LLM 2018. Some of them have either copy-pasted the content from other exams such as CLAT or just republished old information from the previous years AILET announcements.
In short, we did not find any reliable or authenticated info about the details of the exam syllabus. So we looked at the recent entrance exam question papers, from 2015, 2016 and 2017; to deduce what the 2018 paper may look like.
