Mock Tests


Here in this page, I've grouped all the mock tests that I had released during the recent years. Also, I will update this page with upcoming practice tests (if any) in the coming days. I repeat again UCEED/NID-DAT exams are similar to CEED Part-A. So, don't wonder if you see mix of mock tests from CEED/UCEED. Try them all ........!!!
Also, design practice questions are available in this page designed for CEED exan but might also be applicable for NID.

Design Thoughts for every day (CEED Part-B, NID)


(This section is not required for UCEED students)

Almost all the CEED aspirants were good at making sketches by looking; in other words copy sketching. But most of them were facing difficulty in communicating or sketching imaginative thoughts (with one's own visualization). I can say - that's because of may be lack of practice and appropriate exposure to how actually things were sketched and look in real life.

In order to help with this situation, I am writing this post. The thing is whenever you are good at perceptive way of sketching and when you know how to sketch things easily - and if any question were raised in exam hall, it will be easy for you as you just need to incorporate your design concept in an already learnt view rather than taking time just for thinking "how to sketch ?", "in what way/angle to sketch ?". Even most of the people don't know "what to sketch and practice". 

In order to ease you and make you prepare in a span of one month duration, I suggest you to go through the following pattern

  • Everyday practice of objective and surrounding things sketches in perceptive (check below for exercises).
  • Solving at least one design/creative thoughts with problem identification (given below).
  • Simultaneous General awareness and aptitude study for Part-A covering one topic every day (given below)

Analysis for mistakes in design sketches


(This section is not required for UCEED students)

It's common that everybody do mistakes and It's always good to learn from the mistakes without repeating the same again. If you are doing mistakes; it does mean that you are actually learning. It will be more easier for us to look into others pictures and find mistakes so that we may avoid doing the same. For that only, I will post some of the solution/design and sketch works shared with me by our good friends along with some suggestions as well as mistakes (from my end) that should be taking care of - for our improvement. I thank them for taking pain of practicing.

    1. Actually I knowingly hid those links for some other reasons - I haven't included image source (links) for those pictures, that's why because of copyright issues, I hid them.

      Anyway, I will make it active now, but please make sure that you save all those pictures today itself; coz by tomorrow, I will again convert those links to drafts.

      Hope that's ok.

    1. Hello Ankit,
      This blog is basically for CEED exam, very few topics holds good for NID too. Like explanations about UI, design/sketch reviews, other design related discussions like PD/VC/animation and so on. I didn't have access to previous NID papers, that's why couldn't figure out the pattern. And I have not searched for related blogs till date, if found, I will definitely share with you guys.

    1. I've already written a brief reply to the second ques asked by someone else in my earlier comments. I'm just copying that below

      "
      This is purely problem solving skill mixed with your creative thinking. Let me write the three challenges for the first question itself, that should be a hint to you. Try if u can figure out solution for the challenges that I'm writing
      1. Water in the glass should not fall down as it hops
      2. Finding the water source is itself a challenge
      2. Prevent any human/animal etc from drinking the half water
      "

      Basically they are expecting your creative use of the situation. Diff. people come up with diff solutions and the one that addresses the best possible problems would stand on the top. So, just like I wrote above, you can think and list some, and also try to illustrate that.

    1. all the links in this page r mock tests only :P :D, doesn't matter whether it's 2016 or 2017, u can follow the same mocktests as syllabus is same
      I don't know whether last min. Design part techniques are possible or not, but in this time, go thru as many answers of others as possible n try understanding how they solved that. Instead of giving ur full attempt during practice, try to quickly do rough sketches of ur design by taking design ques. Do that roughly, such that u cover/solve many design ques to get used to it. U can check some suggetsion/TIPS for deign ques here -
