Books on CEED:

There are some prescribed books available on the net. In addition, there are blogs written by students who have been successful in obtaining admissions to the M.Des courses. But the general consensus is that books as such are not very helpful in the preparation for CEED exam. Candidates must hone their sketching skills and must be design-inclined as well as passionate about it.


Every entrance exam requires a minimum amount of preparation time. Candidates need to prepare a timetable for CEED 2019 preparation too. Sketching, practising your designing skills, solving papers and such activities should be part of the timetable. A minimum of 2 to 3 hours should be devoted to the CEED 2019 exam preparation.

CEED-Sample-PapersPractice with CEED 2019 Sample Papers:

Unlike other entrance exams, CEED is a hands-on exam which requires a lot of practice and observation. In order to gauge the questions that may be asked in the exam, candidates must practice with the CEED 2019 Sample Papers and question papers from the previous years.

Candidates will know the type of questions asked and can practice on those lines. They can also understand the topics that need to be covered from the previous year papers and sample papers.

CEED-Design-PortfolioCEED 2019 Design Portfolio:

The Design Portfolio is one of the important parts of CEED 2019. Candidates who qualify in the CEED 2019 exam will be required to present a portfolio during the personal interview conducted for admissions. This Design Portfolio consists of the artworks, sketches and design ideas of the candidates showcasing their talent in design.

It is advisable that candidates start putting a portfolio from day 1 of CEED 2019 Preparation. This ensures that they don’t rush to put one together if they are selected and allows them to use their practice sheets also in the portfolio if they are good.

Ultimately, it is the hard work combined with dedication and perseverance that counts to ensure the success of the students in any entrance exam. The CEED 2019 Exam is a different exam and more of design-oriented so candidates must also have the passion for design as the entrance exam is just a means to the personal interview. This interview is what counts when it actually comes to admissions.

We hope that these guidelines help the CEED 2019 aspirants in their preparation and wish them all success!

I got my CEED scorecard. what is the next step for admission?

Vagisha Aggarwal 15th Mar, 2020

Hello Aspirant

After you get your CEED scorecard, I think its best you start checking your college preferences based on your scores and shortlist them. The the most important step is to take care of the last day of application of the colleges.

Even if your CEED score is less than you dream college, I would still recommend you apply for it because you never know about the cut-offs for that year.
