Hello Student,

I Hope you are doing well.

UCCEED-> Undergraduate Common Entrance Examination for Design

Conducted by- Indian Institute of Technology Bombay

NID->National Institute of Design

Conducted by-> National Institute of Design Ahmedabad

NID Design Aptitude Test is conducted for admission in the prestigious National Institute Design (NID) campuses in Bachelors of Design (B. Des)course.

Some of the best coachings for NID and UCEED-:

AFAindia i s among the leading coaching institutes.

In India, there are many coaching programmes accessible, however in my opinion, creativity doesn't really blossom in a coaching programme.

The secret to passing NID, NIFT, and CEED is creativity; you may do this without depending on coaching sessions. I would advise going on a tour or travelling instead of paying hefty fees to teaching centres. If not, simply take in your surroundings. Every morning, take a stroll and study the textures and patterns of the surroundings. Try to observe and see things from your perspective wherever you go. Try to consider and analyse the issues!

I hope this helps you.
