NID Mains Studio Test (Round 2): For PG (M.Des)

Only students who clear NID Prelims are eligible to appear for the next round of the admission process of National Institute of Design (NID) called NID Mains. Typically, for 1 NID seat, 5 students are called for NID Mains. It is preferable for students applying for M.Des. This is also commonly called Studio Test or Round 2.

NID Mains consists of the following:

  • Studio Test
  • Portfolio Review (M.Des Only)
  • Personal Interview (M.Des & PG Only)

Each of these is described below:

Studio Test:

The studio test is required and applicable for both UG and PG students in NID Mains. It is conducted to get an idea about the creative imagination and capacity of a student to create an idea into reality. Studio Tests may consist of multiple activities including - Material Handling, Audio Visual Round, Memory Tests, Story Illustration, Psychometric Test and a host of other activities.

For Material Handling, students are given a problem to solve with limited materials and time. Eg. Using paper, create a packaging for a light bulb so that it should not break when dropped from a height of 5 feet. Similar exercises are given with materials like Card Board, Clay Modelling, Straw, Paper, Thermocole, Wire, Fabric etc.

Personal Interview:

A personal interview is conducted by a panel of experts. They typically have a conversation with a candidate to view them from many lenses to assess students. They would delve into the personal aspects of why the aspirants wants to join NID. In addition, they can give them a few psychometric tests to assess the student as well.

Portfolio Review:

Till 2016, the Portfolio round was present for both UG and PG aspirants. However in 2017, the Portfolio Round is only for post graduate students.

What is a portfolio?

A Portfolio is a collection of a candidate’s best and most recent artwork/designs/projects. A portfolio is very personal to each student and speaks volumes about their creativity, interest and passion. For PG aspirants, it is mandatory to showcase a portfolio and it must have some relevance to the specialization they are applying to.

A well presented portfolio speaks volumes about the student and highlights the skill sets of the outstanding students.

Physical Classes will take place in our studios at Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, Mangalore, and Thrissur.
