Admissions to the Bachelor of Design (B.Des.) programmes at IIT Bombay, IIT Guwahati, IIT Hyderabad, and IIITDM Jabalpur are done through the Undergraduate Common Entrance Exam for Design (UCEED). Students who have passed Class XII (or equivalent) in 2019 or appearing in 2020 in ANY STREAM (Science, Commerce, or Arts & Humanities), are eligible to appear for UCEED 2020.
What UCEED mainly tests is your verbal and nonverbal logic, observational skills, attention to detail, basic knowledge about photography, a pretty good knowledge on Indian art and architecture and general awareness of design-related topics. You could do the MCQs, a part of NIDs’ question paper to know how the exam works. It goes without saying that you should practice last year’s question papers to get a flavour of the exam.
Time Management and Reading the Instructions given on the question paper,
are the two major contributing factors to doing well in the exams. Answering smartly and dividing time accordingly is the key.
Train yourself with some brain twisters to develop your own approach towards solving a problem because you will need it during the exam.
