CEED Exam Analysis of Past years

Students must practice the CEED sample papers 2020 for better grasp of the exam. In order to help the candidates know better about the format of question papers and the difficulty level, here is the exam analysis of previous years.

CEED 2019 Exam Analysis

Overall CEED 2019 paper had the same difficulty level as the previous year CEED question paper and was pretty straight forward. The range of topics covered in CEED 2018 was as expected, however there was a difference in the mix of questions asked. More weightage was given to Mental Ability, Logical Reasoning, Visual-Spatial Ability and Math as compared to General knowledge.

General knowledge questions asked were more application based. Topics covered included knowledge of photography, audio, video terminology (screen resolutions), printing etc. Only one direct GK question was asked in which four objects were given- a cup, a fan, a toy, and ceramic piece and you had to match the items to the state of India it was associated with images of a Palki (palanquin) were given and you had to choose the right image, this required application of basic physics in which you had to judge the center of gravity.

The exam pattern of part A was as follows:

CEED 2018 Exam Analysis

The CEED 2018 exam was similar to the exam conducted last year. The CEED 2018 question paper was divided into two parts, A and B. The exam was of three hours duration, Part A of the exam was of one hour followed by Part B of two hours.

CEED 2018 Part A: It carried a total of 100 marks and was divided into five sections.

CEED 2018 Part B: The drawing section of CEED consisted of eight questions in total.

Number of questions

Marks

Q.(1-5)

50 marks(any one optional)

Q.(6-7)

Q.(8)

Therefore, out of eight questions given in the paper, a student had to answer four questions in total.

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.

Thus the above article explains in detail the previous years’ analysis and the exam analysis of CEED 2020.

I have done B Arch from VNIT Nagpur in1998 .I am planning to appear for CEED and persue Mdes industrial design from IIT Delhi after working as design architect for 20 years and worked on commercial projects till date.Will the masters degree in industrial design help me.Will that be a right decision

Vikas gehlot 1st Feb, 2020

I don't think that doing masters at this age would be of any benefit. Even after doing your masters you are going to give your 2 years and after that your age will be an actor and you cannot start your career at the age better you can use your experience and get promotion by your work because degree wont help you at this age.

The other factors is that you need to give time to prepare for the exam at this is it is not very ideal age to prepare for competitive exam in also there is not any guarantee of success in the exam.
