1.

Abhimanyu's partial knowledge of Chakravyooh.
Absence of Krishna and Arjuna when Dronacharya launches the Chakravyooh.
The boon granted to Jayadrath by Lord Shiva to hold all the Pandavas except Arjuna for one day isolates Abhimanyu from the Pandavas in Chakravyooh.
The Kaurava maharathis violation of the war rules. Especially the Karna who wielded his weapons from Abhimanyu's back. Karna broke his bow by firing from behind and also fired the mortal arrow when Abhimanyu was fighting a hand to hand mortal battle with Dushana's son.
The ignorance of the remaining Pandavas(Apat from Arjun) to enter Chakravyooh.
Abhimanyu kills Duryodhana's son Lakshamana
The late arrival of Ghatothkacha.

Lack of knowledge about the breaking of chakraview or understanding that he was being caught up in chakraview.

Misplanning from Padavas side...by allowing Arjun to dallop behind Jayadrath...when they knew he is the backbone of the entire army...and not allowing any other pandav follow Jayadrath.....also wrong decision to allow Abhimanyu enter Chakravyuh....when taking a back step wud be cleverer till Arjun returned!
