What should you do to Crack NID PG & CEED in 2023 or 2024?

You can Smartly prepare to get into NID's and IIT's. Preparation goes beyond just sketching and aptitude. It is a mindset which the NID Selection panels are looking for. The tips below will help you get a huge advantage to your seat.

  1. Communicate - The ability to communicate abstract thoughts - is a key to being a designer. Simplify things that the regular Joe finds tough. Use sketching, sound, music, animation - whatever it takes to get your message across. Read a lot, Try sketching out what you read, try explaining this to someone unfamiliar through your sketches, art, graphics, illustrations, animations etc. See how you can simplify your communication.
  2. Exposure - You can't reach the ceiling if you don't know that it exists. Let the world not be your oyster. Look beyond. Dont limit yourself. Explore beyond your home, your surroundings, your city, your country - Look out for the best designs globally. Understand those designers and how they came up with solutions. Remember, simplicity is the toughest to achieve.
  3. Observe - Look up, Look around, Question fundamentals, Reinvent, Experiment - All these and much more are typical characteristics of a designer. You don't need a degree to do this. You just need to pay attention to your senses - see, hear, smell, taste, feel - but most importantly, listen to your soul. Start off with this - Recreate the good things that you see, break things up, fix things, remodel, reinvent and then innovate. If you go through this process, your design thought process will certainly improve.
  4. Believe in yourself - The NID admission panel wants aspirants who believe that they can make a difference through design. You need to show that you have what it takes. If you do the above - You are sure to believe in yourself.
  5. Skill Yourself - The NID Prelims is an elimination test. Aptitude, Sketching and Creative Thinking needs to be showcased tremendously. This should help you stand out from the competition and get the attention of the evaluator. NID Mains is an extension of your thought process.

  3. They also get the best projects from the Government of India and access to the top labs and infrastructure
