The NID DAT 2020 BDes entrance was supposed to be 3 hours for both GAT and Drawing section, but in my centre in Bangalore the examiners did not give the drawing section until after 50 minutes. This meant that we only 130 minutes for drawing. Unfair! How was it in other centres??

Gayu 30th Dec, 2019

Thanks Harish, However, what you are saying is true for MDes only (which is 150 minutes paper). My query was related to BDes which is 180 minutes paper. As far as I know there is no such notification for BDes exam. It seems unfair to all the students who were not allowed the full 3 hours for both sections.
