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.
