NID or the National Institute of Design offers creative courses for the deserving aspirants. The exam is divided in three parts viz. the DAT (Design Aptitude Test), The Studio Test and Personal Interview.

For the DAT, the student requires

• Good perception and aptitude for design. Students are tested for original ideas.
• Students are expected to be creative and think out of the box.
• Abstract and logical thinking with special ability should be learnt
• Practice a lot of sketching. Speed sketching on random topics within the restricted time limits should be developed.
• Have good colouring practice
• There are, but a few questions on current affairs. For a student to get selected, they can't afford to lose any marks and this is where they can add over their score.

After DAT, comes the Studio test. This test is mainly conducted to test the material handling aptitude in the students. The effective use of materials is very important. The students are provided with any material and asked to design with own ideas and creativity. This is where the student is analysed for the original creative and innovative ideas with presence of mind and time management.

Last but not the least is the Personal Interview. Confidence is the most important trait looked upon in any interview. The student can get their craft work along to showcase the talent. But the student should not steal the work as the interviewer is well talented to get the original picture.
