How to crack NID DAT?
Nancy Johri, 6 days ago, #NID DAT

National Institute of Design (NID), a premier design college, conducts Design Aptitude Test (DAT) for aspirants seeking admissions to undergraduate design programme (B.Des). Design aspirants from all over the country appear for this national level entrance exam, but only 100 seats are allocated to eligible and qualified candidates at NID (Ahmedabad). With this, you can surely get an idea about the cut throat competition in this field.

You need to follow effective NID DAT Preparation Tips that will separate you from rest of the test-takers. Apart from your dedication and sincerity, knowing few practical tips will help you to a great extent in cracking NID DAT. Careers360 brings here top tips on how to crack NID DAT and secure a seat at the prestigious institute.

Tip#1: Develop Observation & Visualisation Skills

The most crucial purpose of DAT is to test candidates’ creative and imaginative skills. Apart from that, the questions are framed in order to judge their general awareness, observation skills and visualisation as well. It is a common myth among students that only good sketching is essential to crack the entrance exam. This is not true, as developing the aforementioned skills is equally important. You need to work on enhancing this skill set first. 

Tip#2: Improve your Speed

Having exceptional drawing skills and creativity is useless if you don’t have speed. The whole idea is to be able to present your imagination and uniqueness in the exam in limited time duration. You should work on enhancing your speed so that you can answer all the questions in the given time. 

Tip#3: Solve Sample Papers 

Practice NID DAT sample papers as much as you can. This will give you an idea about the types of questions that are asked in the exam. You will know the overall difficulty level of the entrance test as well. Moreover, this will aid in increasing your speed to a great extent. Solving previous years’ papers will also let you know the sequence in which you should answer different sections.

Tip#4: Improve General Awareness   

It is not necessary that you cram up your mind with each and every General Knowledge book. Awareness about current happenings is more important. For this, read newspapers daily. Moreover, you should also know about famous designers who have contributed in this challenging field. Spend time on reading fashion & design books/magazines. You need to develop a genuine passion for this domain.

Tip#5: Don’t waste time in Erasing & Redrawing 

In the limited hours given to you for completing the exam, you have to make sure that you do not waste time in erasing and redrawing, which most of the candidates do. To ensure this, it is recommended that you draw with a light hand first focusing majorly on outlining only. After getting satisfied with the rough outline and dimensions, you can start with the detailing work and finalise it. This way, you will save a lot of time.       

Tip#6: Be Innovative

Being innovative enough to use your imagination and original ideas to create something is a prerequisite to clear this exam. You should have ability to come up with unique ideas to design something new. Questions in NID DAT will evaluate your out of the box thinking. Keeping aside your conventional thoughts, you need to bring your uncommon thinking to the fore. 

Following these NID DAT Preparation Tips while studying for NID DAT will definitely help you to achieve your goal. Give your 100 percent, be sincere and focused, and maintain a positive approach throughout your preparation phase. You have every possibility to clear the exam with flying colors.
