CEED 2017 Exam Analysis
Part A of CEED 2017 consisted of three sections.
Number of questions
The difference from last year was that, this year the NAT did not have any negative marks. This means that the students could take a wild guess and would not be penalised for it.
Overall, the paper was a little difficult and the branch specific questions were quite lengthy as compared to previous years’ papers. Part B comprised of even tougher concept building and sketching questions. Also, many candidates were expecting a full length of 50 marks for the sketching questions but the questions carried only 20 marks and that too had a choice of two. In general, the CEED 2017 raises the bar further even for the candidates who were well prepared.
CEED 2016 Exam Analysis
Similar to last year, CEED 2016 Part B consisted of compulsory questions of 50 marks weightage followed by a single 50 marks question which could be selected from a set of four questions. The pattern for compulsory questions was slightly different than last year. This was primarily because 30 marks were allocated to memory drawing, followed by 20 marks for idea generation question and finally 10 marks for story writing. For the optional 50 marks question, the pattern of last year was repeated, where a candidate could choose to attempt a question out of four choices. These four choices were chosen from a specific branch of design, namely, product design, animation, visual communication and interaction design.
