Hi Surbhi

It's okay if your sister does not clear nift entrance, there are lot of private universities like Pearl Academy,IIAD etc that she apply for. They have very easy entrance, all you need there is a good portfolio and confidence that's it. Don't worry she will get into one soon

Hope this answer helps.

Passing marks may vary every year.

As you might know , nift entrance consist of cat-50% gat-30% and situation test-20%. So if you scored well in written exam you can easily get among top 2000 and get selected for situation test.

Marks vary year to year. Your performance in situation test will actually decide your rank.

All the best !!
