SET (Law) 2012: Analysis

SET (Law) 2012 was conducted on 5 May, 2012 all over India and was on the expected lines. Though the actual paper was not given to the examinees, the analysis is based on feedback from students who appeared in the examination.
The level of the entire paper can be summed up as easy to moderate and students should expect a decent show. Many of the questions, particularly in the Legal Aptitude, English and Reasoning Sections have been discussed in our materials almost in the same manner. The comprehensive LST course covered almost every question type that appeared in the exam.

The examination comprised 150 questions, which were divided equally over the five sections. This year too, the examination was on similar lines as those of the last year. Total Questions were 150 with 4 options for each question and the time limit was 150 minutes.

Section-wise analysis of the paper:

Legal Reasoning:

This section was a combination of questions based on legal reasoning and legal knowledge. In legal reasoning concepts from Torts (including Vicarious liability, Negligence, Reasonable care), Contracts (including Considerations, Competence of parties) and International Law were covered. The questions in the legal knowledge section were, however, mostly based on Constitutional Law including application of knowledge pertinent to the Preamble of the Constitution of India. Apart from Constitutional Law, a blend of various subject matters was encapsulated in this section. The knowledge based questions were quite simple and might not have posed any difficulties to LSTians.
