In this blog, we’ll address some of the most common NIFT entrance exam FAQs, providing aspiring designers with the information and guidance they need to navigate the exam process with confidence and success.

  • What is the format of the NIFT entrance exam?
      • The NIFT entrance exam typically consists of two parts: the Creative Ability Test (CAT) and the General Ability Test (GAT). CAT assesses a candidate’s creative and design skills through drawing, sketching, and visualization exercises, while GAT evaluates their quantitative, analytical, and English language abilities through multiple-choice questions.
  • What topics are covered in the NIFT entrance exam syllabus?
      • The NIFT entrance exam syllabus includes a wide range of topics related to design, creativity, general knowledge, mathematics, and English language. Candidates should focus on areas such as drawing and sketching, color theory, design principles, current affairs, basic mathematics, vocabulary, grammar, and comprehension.
  • How should I prepare for the NIFT entrance exam?
      • Start by familiarizing yourself with the exam pattern, syllabus, and previous years’ question papers. Practice drawing, sketching, and creative exercises regularly to improve your design skills. Brush up on your general knowledge, mathematics, and English language skills through self-study, online resources, and coaching classes if needed. Additionally, consider joining a coaching institute or enrolling in online courses specifically tailored for NIFT exam preparation.
  • What are some tips for acing the NIFT entrance exam?
      • Manage your time effectively during the exam, allocating sufficient time to each section based on its weightage and difficulty level. Practice solving sample papers and mock tests under timed conditions to improve your speed and accuracy. Focus on your strengths but also work on improving your weaknesses through targeted practice and revision. Stay calm, confident, and focused on the day of the exam, and don’t forget to read the instructions carefully before attempting each section.
  • How is the NIFT entrance exam score calculated?
    • The final score in the NIFT entrance exam is calculated based on the candidate’s performance in both the CAT and GAT. Each section carries a certain weightage, and the overall score is calculated using a predetermined formula. Candidates are ranked based on their total scores, and admission to NIFT’s various undergraduate and postgraduate programs is offered based on merit and preference.
