NID Entrance Exam Pattern

NID conducts a Design Aptitude Test (DAT) - Prelims and Mains for admission. Students who clear Prelims are called for Mains exam. NID DAT (Prelims) will be conducted on 5th January 2020. NID DAT (Mains) will be conducted in April / May 2020. NID changed the question paper pattern for the design aptitude test in 2019 as compared to previous 3 years (2018, 2017 and 2016) as follows:
# Sections Marks for each Section
    2020 2019 2018 2017 2016
1 Objective Section 30 30 70 70 70
2 Subjective Section 70 70 30 30 30
  Total Marks 100 100 100 100 100
Student reaction to NID DAT (Prelims) 2019: The marks weightage was reversed between objective and subjective sections. Students were surprised with the paper pattern. In the subjective section, the paper had questions on perspective drawing, stamp design, communication design. Students who are weak in drawing and creativity found the paper difficult.
