NID Mains consists of the following:
Each of these is described below:
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.
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.
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.
NID does not require a portfolio for B.Des aspirants, should I still go ahead and make one?
Any creative student must make a portfolio for themselves. The main reason why student should prepare their portfolio, is because it gives the student an opportunity to introspect and focus their creativity. They can use this as a platform to showcase their own skills and think completely out of the box for self expression and problem solving.
It is recommended for B.Des aspirants to prepare a portfolio as well since, surprises are always there at the Studio Test. Besides, if not NID’s, other colleges too look for Portfolio to assess skills of students. There are a host of colleges like Strate School of Design, UnitedWorld Institute of Design, Woxsen School of Design and others. To see how to get into these colleges, you could also look at the “Apply to Colleges” tab in DQ Edge.
