Tips on how to prepare for NID DAT 2020
If you draw well, then you will crack NID DAT entrance, which is the most common misconception among all NID aspirants. NID questions are framed to test the imagination, creativity and visualization skills/ general awareness/ observation of a candidate. Basically, NID focuses on problem-solving capabilities.
Work on your creativity
Candidates should be creative and will be able to come up with new and original ideas. Candidates should be that much creative that they can rebirth their ideas everyday. While NID exam preparation, motivate yourself, work with enthusiasm then you must be amazed at your ideas and creations.
If candidates are not able to present their thoughts in the exam hall in the limited span of time which means their drawing & creative skills are useless. Maintaining speed is equally important.
Solve Past Years Question Papers of NID DAT
Solve all the previous papers on or before NID DAT exam date. Solve at least a question paper within the time limit. Apart from that do mock test everyday.
Do not practice in A3 size sketchbook. Always use A4 size because normally A4 is the standard size of answer sheets in the exam.
During exam don’t worry about marks or scoring high. Candidates should be confident about their drawing and answer.
Requiring drawing question, always draw with a light hand first. When candidates satisfied with their proportion and a rough outline, now they can finalize it. Doing this there are fewer chances of erasing & re-drawing and candidates save a lot of time.
Practice more with dry colours, because they are convenient to use and take less time during the exam.
Draw a Clear cut Time Table for Preparation
Candidates should plan their time for NID DAT entrance preparation. Making a timetable is the best option.
