UCEED exam general discussion - FAQ's Page 2


My reply to the most asked questions


Q1)

"What is the cutoff for UCEED/CEED/NID? (or any other design exam) 

UCEED or any other design exam for that matter does not maintain a fixed or standard cut off every year. Exam cut off varies every year based on the following factors

  • Number of students appearing
  • Exam difficulty level
  • Maximum marks scored by the first ranker (and subsequent top 100/any other numbered people)
  • Density or number of people having same marks or score
  • Average marks obtained 
  • Number of students having marks within a given range etc
So, it's not that easy to tell - for a given marks, whether that is accepted or within a range. Just based on marks, we cannot predict AIR or cutoff. Sometimes, for lower marks also, there is a chance of getting good AIR (if the exam was difficult and the average of all the people's attempt were low) and vice versa. So, just don't get confused but wait until the results or score list!


Q2) 

"I got xyz marks based on UCEED/CEED/NID results or from the key, will I get seat in abc institute ? (or any other design exam) 

Again, institute cutoff's varies every year based on the above discussions. If there is a post UCEED process just like CEED, NID-DAT and other design exams, then it's not necessary that institutes take only the toppers! they will also give weight-age to any/some or all of the following - merit, performance in interview, studio tests, portfolio etc and more. So again, discussion for Q1 is applicable and must be justifying here.

Please don't repeat asking this question again and again. Thanks.

  4. Hey Guys! How was the paper? How many did you attempt in all 3 sections? Were you able to finish the whole paper in time? Did you find it too easy, too tough or medium? I think it was tougher than 2015's paper but a bit easier than 2016's paper.

    1. 'Twas easier than 2016... a lot easier... except for the "clock questions", though!

    2. I think it was not that difficult.Lets see what happens!!.Totally depends upon the cutoff.I think cutoff will be high this year.

    3. How many did you questions you attempted in each section? expecting what marks?

      Delete
    4. Paper was easier than expected. I solved attempted 78 questions of 85. @Shreyas Vyas The clock question was not that tough... Tough question was that one, "Lady taking bus ride at 5pm...." of NAT type.

  10. hello sir,
    plz check the answer for q no. 22
    in the draft key it is given options B,C,D.
    but i think it should be only B and C
    as the the literacy rate is very low....printed booklets and posters are of no use..
    that is my view of the answer...plz check!

  11. Sir many answers are wrong in answer key like 58th question... Answer must be D cause only in that option Green line yellow line over laps to form voilet-purple
    And 30th is wrong too.... D won't be correct scaling of that pattern since only 2 branches must form in main body after scaling

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The answer are not correct.I also have a doubt in that question.

      Delete
    2. yes in question number 58 answer should be option D

      Delete
    3. for question 58, B is the correct answer. In all other three pictures, there is the same pattern, i.e., 3 crosses and 1 line overlapping all four. But this pattern is not followed in B.

      Delete
    4. and for 30th, D is correct. All bodies have only two branches. Look closely, brother!

      Delete
  12. in ques. 61 both option A and D are exactly the same. i marked A just for the sake of answering but ans given is D . anyone please correct me if im wrong.

    ReplyDelete

    1. don't just look at the hands. look at the border of the clocks buddy.

      Delete
    2. option A and D are not same bro
      check propely... the colour in the design is different.

      Delete
  13. how much are u scoring mithesh ?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Question 58 should be C as only in C option blue and red stripes are intersecting, while in all the others, they are not intersecting. Moreover it is only in option C that Violet and Red stripes are not intersecting while in all other options they are intersecting. Hence the correct answer should be C too.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. there's no need to look at colors intersecting. Except for B, all figures follow the same pattern, i.e., 3 crosses and yellow overlapping all of them.

      Delete
    2. B is right. yellow got cut by 4 colors in all options, green and red got cut by 2 colors in all. Only in B, blue and violet got cut by 3 colors

      Delete
    3. Its a waste of time to discuss this question, following different rules (by ignoring all other rules), multiple answers are possible. So B, C and D, all are possible answer. It doesn't matter though because it's not going to be changed now. @ Ameer Hamza. @virtualciti

  35. Sir I am Alok and I am thankful to you for such helpful sources and my uceed 2017 obc-ncl rank is AIR 38. I am planning to take admission in b.des in IIT's but somewhere my mind says me to take the admission in b.tech but I am not sure about getting IIT's through jee advance but through uceed I surely have chances so what should I opt for? b.tech or b.des I have interest in both fields please guide me I am in huge confusion now. how good is b.des? is there any scope for it? and how good are the placements in IIT's? what is average package a designer should get(at last this is what our parents need).
    Thank you

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. how gud id bdes?
      it depends on ur interest. For bdes great deal of passion is required from ur side. If you just take the course as an option, then you can't perform well. It's not like engineering.
      I'm not very sure about packages, but I know it's similar to engineering placements. If you stand out and turn out to be a good design student, you will get good career options from high paying top niche companies. In any case, pay is not that high for average designers and is reasonable.
      Good thing is even if u take btech, then u can switch to design thru mdes. But as far I've observed, people after doing btech from iit's almost never switch to mdes. It's all coz of environment in IIT's. They prefer management, consulting, tech etc but mostly never design. So, decide upon ur interest.

      Delete
  36. If I do b.des in ug then can I do ms or mtech in pg.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, bdes is different and so after ur bdes you can't switch to engineering but the reverse is possible I mean after ur bdes you can opt to design, upto 80% of the CEED rexam givers are from engineering background!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. it doesn't work actually. I mean it might miss-guide some students while it might come handy to others because everyone might not get equal amount of time every week. Also, some needed many hours of study while some just need comparatively fewer hours to cover the same topic. That's why I didn't gave topic specific or weeks time schedule. I hope you can set according to your commitments n any other exam timetable.
      And pl don't expect me to do ur work of separating the topic according to week time. At least u can do that much work! and all the topics are available in UCEED related pages only.

  41. Sir I have taken drop for jee in 2017 and my aim is to crack upsc examination, I'm very much interested in upsc , but as most people say that u will not get time in engineering for preparation as in engg we have to study a lot, but after seeing reviews from quora I found that in bdes at iit bombay we will get lots of time.

    1. B. Des (IDC IITB or IITG) isn’t a programme you should enrol in if you’re not genuinely interested in design, engineering is far better in that respect, if you can get in. The workload here can and will burn you out if you’re not into it. If you are interested in design, and especially if you have some vision of what you want out of IDC, this is probably the best place to be.

  42. Thanks! That's the best I could offer to people who develop misconceptions based on 'baseless gossips' ...
    B des. by no means, is a programme, where 'we will get lots of time' (as it how Mr. Unknown puts it) ...


    The workload is tremendous, and even exceeds those of tech peers, at times. However, it has it's perks too ...

    Unlike other courses in Tech & science, designing is a stream which lets you think freely, allows you to interpret your exam questions and assignments however you want, and provides you uncountable opportunities to explore and learn ...

    It is really fun watching others (from tech) fret over exams, while a design student chilling out (because you are the 'designer' of your own exam ... you can give it shape, the way you want it to be) :)

    At the end, think wisely ... If you are really interested in designing, per se ... this is your gateway ...

    Cheers~

  43. Hello Sir
    I'm a class 12th student
    and study material which you have prepared for NID and UCEED is wonderful but a little bit lengthy and confusing .
    As you know that even 12th is important so I don't have much time left
    Can provide something which is concise
    Thank you Sir
