CLAT-2020 vs AILET 2020

Which is tougher – CLAT or AILET?

If you compare the number of applicants per seat then definitely AILET is a tougher exam as compared to CLAT. Confirming the same, Shiksha’s Law Expert, Vivek Subramanian said that if you compare the number of registrations for each exam then 50,684 candidates (44,576 for BA LLB & 6,108 for LLM) registered for CLAT 2017 to fill a total of 2,670 seats in BA LLB (Hons) course whereas 18,322 aspirants (17,054 for BA LLB, 1095 for LLM & 173 for PhD) registered for AILET 2017 to fill a total of 83 seats. Thus, in CLAT approximately 14 candidates compete for a seat in an NLU, whereas in AILET there are around 207 candidates competing for a seat in NLU, Delhi”. But having said that most of the students who are applying for AILET also apply for CLAT “but still since NLU Delhi is considered among the top 5 National Law Universities (NLUs) of India it is tough to get in and the difficulty level of the questions asked is also higher in its exam”, he added.

CLAT or AILET or both – What should law aspirants consider?

Students should definitely consider applying for both CLAT and AILET exams. For aspirants, it can be difficult to pay for and thereafter appear for a second admission test. But the thing that should be kept in mind while taking this decision is that if you have a bad day and botch the CLAT exam then AILET can be a good backup option. But as per experts AILET is a tough nut to crack and so Vivek suggests that students should take AILET exam preparation very seriously because “getting a high enough AILET rank to win a seat in NLU Delhi, is not necessarily any easier than getting into the top few CLAT NLUs”.
