I would like to go for designing course from NIFT or Pearl. How can I prepare for entrance?
Admission to the design courses is on the basis of an entrance exam held in early June each year.
The exam includes a general proficiency test which covers general knowledge, comprehension and English language exercises as well as a design aptitude test to assess your sense of creativity, colour, perspective and so on.
On application you will also get a set of sample question papers to help you prepare for the test. There are now many guide books with sample papers of the entrance tests, which you can work out on your own.
A general interest and awareness of the fashion industry is also useful. So you can subscribe to some the latest fashion magazines, national as well as international.
You can also build up a portfolio of design work which you can work on while preparing for the exam. Coaching institutes have also come up to train potential aspirants to this programme.
Those who qualify in this exam are called for a group discussion and interview.
