Sample NIFT 2017/ NID Questions -How to Approach Them with Ease

Nift nid

Demolish the myth that NIFT 2017 is just like any other competitive test for which general ability is assessed. True, it is an integral part of the admission process, but there is another hurdle that makes it more challenging to secure a seat in NIFT 2017 or NID, and it is known as Creative Aptitude.

Right Approach to Crack NID Entrance Test

1. Misconception: It is a misconception that NID tests sketching skills. Nope. Questions are meant to judge creativity, imagination, visualization skills and general awareness. Developing these skills is vital.

2. Creativity: Creativity is an esoteric phenomenon. There is no universal definition – highly interpretative. Perhaps it is the ability to come up with fresh, original and unconventional ideas. Possess a profound insight to problem-solving.

3. Time: Drawing and creative skills are futile if you do not present thoughts in the specified time. Lose marks if you fail to answer or submit an incomplete paper. Speed matters a lot and makes all the difference between success and failure.

4. Previous papers: Study previous papers of NID. Solve at least 8-10 past papers within the time limit. Find a comfortable sequence of answering the paper. If you hit a mental block, breathe deeply, relax and then attempt the questions.

5. Size: Do not practice in A3 size sketch books. Work in A4 size as it is the standard size of answer sheets in the examinations.

6. Rote learning: Be aware of what is happening around. Read quality newspapers regularly. Increase your power of observation. Find out about professionals who have contributed innovative designs.

7. Motivation: Find a deep and compelling reason to clear the test. Motivate yourself. Work with dollops of enthusiasm. Be amazed to discover new ideas.

8. Medium: Practice more with dry mediums (colours). They are convenient to use and take less time in exams.

9. Outline: In the questions requiring drawing, sketch with a light hand first and outline sans details. Once satisfied with the proportions and the rough outline, proceed with finalization. This saves a lot of time that students usually squander in erasing and re-drawing.

10. Schedule: Plan the time for school or college study and balance it with entrance preparation. Use time effectively with a time-table.

The Design Aptitude Test (DAT)

The three-hour test (NID) focuses on finding general mental ability and the aptitude for design. It comprises object drawing, dimensions, human figure drawing, proportions, story illustrations, colour concepts and schemes, visual reasoning, advertising, worldview, sensitivity to the environment, and communication skills.

The combination ratio of the topics varies every year. NID entrance syllabus based on knowledge based test, comprehension based test and analytical and reasoning based questions. It covers more of GK and tests basic Maths level – not aptitude-related.
