UCEED exam general discussion - FAQ's


Hello all,

This is a general discussion page, where you can comment below your questions/queries or answer to your queries that are related to exam, pattern, institutes etc. 

My reply to the most asked questions


Q1)

"What is the cutoff for UCEED ? (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. Some times, for lower marks also, there is a chances oif getting good AIR (if exam was difficult and average of all the people's attempt were low) and vice versa. So, just don't get confused but wait till the results or score list!


Q2) 

"I got xyz marks based on UCEED 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.

  3. Hello sir,
    My uceed score is 42 and rank is 703. My question is that why are they allowing so many people to qualify for so few seats? There're 30 each in iitb and iiitdm and I don't know how many for guwahati but why so many people?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Score is usually not the final decision maker in deciding whether seat can be allotted or not. Thta's why usually in CEED/NID exams second and third rounds are there. So, there could be case where even first ranker can or cannot get seat! Also, being qualified with UCEED score allows one to go for private institutes too, I think that's why they do so.

      Delete
    2. But sir, there isn't any second round in UCEED and they haven't mentioned any other private institute?
      But I guess attaching the scorecard in my portfolio for NID should help? I'm in 2nd round for vijayawada...

  4. I scored 43 marks in UCEED. 2016 and AIR 685
    Can I get into IITB if I aM in OBC- NCL category?

  5. Sir,my score is 39. And the cut off is 40. So is there any chances of getting any college down to IIT Bombay..
    Is the cutoff for all the colleges or only for IIT Bombay?
    Can I get chance in Jabalpur?
    And they say, that this is not a score card. We will get the score card on 7th March.
    Should I expect any chance?

    1. AIR will tell us about getting or not getting, I think cutoff is for IITB only, score card is the official statement of what you recieved today, nothing special.

  9. Sir I got AIR 382 in uceed 2016...are there any chances for IITs and if not what are the other colleges I can apply to?

    ReplyDelete
  10. @Everyone,
    I think the cutoff that they mentioned is for only two IIT's - ITB and IIITDM, of course IITDM might reduce their cut off. So, whether you got good AIR or not, look better go through all the institutes offering admissions through UCEED score, check their individual cut off requirements and do apply accordingly. Don't leave a single chance !

    ReplyDelete
  11. Any idea what the highest score is?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sir, first off i would like to thank you sincerely from my heart for doing this for all of us without expecting any sort of profits in mind. I really truly respect you! I only wish i could have found this resource sooner and studied more. I got 42 marks in UCEED and my AIR is 708 and i am in SC quota. Can i expect a seat in any IIT? (how many are there btw? Bombay, guwahati and jabalpur only?)

  15. @All,
    For GEN category, those who got below AIR 50 has good chances of getting into any one of three institutes IITB, IITG and IIITDM Jabalpur but those having above AIR 50 might have less chances. They can probably look for other institutes. As of know, UPES institute is the only institute that I know which accepts UCEED score. I will look for more institutes accepting UCEED score when I get time. Till then try from your end!

    4. Thanks Bhanu, I (Vineet Raj Kapoor) write and guide about about design and other neo careers, and am quite happy to see your efforts in guiding the students. I ventured into Animation and Design long ago, after about 6-7 years of corporate stuff, and have attempted to guide students across India, all alone, on Shiksha.com for years, as a lone voice. So that's why I am happy when I see someone do it with the same passion. That's why i thought i must add to this thread.

    5. That's really great of you Mr. Vineet. I will be happy if u can share some of your posts or any thing that u dealt in Shiksha.com

    6. Sure, there are even a few articles on Comics Design, Game Design, Selection of Animation college, Preparation for Design Study Abroad etc. Some other articles for designers are also there on http://counterreport.com. I was even planning an article on UCEED. I made an analysis based on applicants posts here too, to get an idea what is the value of 1 mark in UCEED (you loose about 8-10 places between 50 and 80 and logrithmically more if you score lesser.

  25. Is very good drawing necessary for B.Des ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For entry to BDes through UCEED, the answer is NO. You don't need to be good at drawing. During BDes, students would be introduced to different facets of drawing. So, obviously, students will be developing their drawing skills. But, a priori interest and minimal drawing knowledge is recommended to become a successful designer!

  26. Which is better for a design course, Symbiosis- Industrial design or Jabalpur IIIT.
    I have to confirm payment for SID, please give your opinion.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Both are good, although it depends on which area u are interested, but listen

      In my opinion, if you are planning for mdes after bdes, then go for IIIT Jabalpur, but if have plans to do job right after your bdes and if you've clear cut idea of which stream most suits you (or that is interesting to u), then may be you can opt Symbiosis. Reason is obvious, bdes in IIITDM is a general design course which covers/introduces to at least three-four streams. So, you will be having a brief picture of what happens in those streams so that during ur bdes journey, you might be able to find the design stream that entertains u the most. Bdes in Symbiosis is design specific (as per my knowledge) and u will be focused towards that specific stream which is best when u already have clear idea of where u r standing and u want to pursive job after ur course. I can say IIITDM is also good in career persoective and not that people usually prefer that when it comes a decision between IIIT and Symb. So, you better decide which way you want to take. Want to do mdes? go ahead with IITDM!
      This is just my view - I believe it works.

  27. I am a bit bad at drawing. Will it affect if I join iiitdm Jabalpur?

    1. It will not affect during your admissions, but you will be learning design drawing soon during your course of study. Of course, you should learn after admission!

Also, ensure that u understood all the concepts and realize the variety of ques that could possible be asked in the exam. UCEED syllabus is not fix - u know right ? so, u need to keep updating yourself with more knowledge esp on design GA.

      I wonder whether u can answer all the GA questions by now ? I'm not sure about you but I can say that not everybody can answer all GA questions coz of the depth and wide syllabus. So, make sure that u r ready with them.

    Replies
    1. I understood ur concern,
      but yes, drawing matters during BDes. After all, it's a design course right. One should at least be in a position to communicate their designs preferably in the mode of sketches although digital works are emerging these days. It's quite easy to put ur ideas in paper in certain cases than using computers/tabs.

    3. Usually most people do self study as UCEED topics are diverse. In one way if u r not able to figure out the required topics to be prepared or if u r not used to do self study, then may be u can consider looking for some instructor or coaching center. But if u can understand UCEED process - I mean if u are able to list out the necessary topics to be prepared as wel las able to plan for prep. then u r good enough to go for self study. Again, joining coaching center depends on availability of good coaching centers in ur locality. Pl chk all these factors and decide urself whether u can join r not. gud luk

    1. u don't need to knw about the cutoff's, it varies every year and depends on competition. I personally don't wish to hear this ques, since as our concern shld only be on practicing to 100% rather than just sticking to cutoff's. What if I say that 100 marks is the cutoff, will u stop practicing ? so, just oractice n improve with time

  49. sir i have solved all the previous year paper of ceed and uceed....including 2016 from your website.sir please help me what to do next??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Gud to see ur commitment to practice.
      Now that you have solved them, you must be knowing abt which ques/topics you did mistake. For all the previous papers that u solved, chk the common topic/area that u couldn't solve the most. Like this make a quick list - with the top most topic being the most mistaken area/topic. Plan to spend time for them accordingly and start working on that. This exercise shld help u cover all aspects of ur design exam.

      While, previous papers help, they are not complete and we need to go thru as many topics/ques as possible. Also, the topics (resources) that I shared in this blog is solely based on my analysis of prev papers and the syllabus that they gave. It's not complete in one sense. So, analyze yourself for the topics that could possibly be asked in exam and prepare for that too. With some time gaps, try to re-solve the prev papers again quickly, and chk whether u were comfortable with the previously mistaken ques.
      Gud luk (Y)

  53. Sir i have so many previous year ceed papers from 2009-2016 in starting years paper like from 2009 till 2014 they not mentioned part-A section in the paper instead in the question paper they have given titles like
    1.Visual perception and design sensitivity
    2. drawing abilities and skills
    3. creativity
    4. problem identification and analysis
    5. design problem solving
    so sir can you please tell which part to attempt for uceed.As you told ceed part-A should be solved for uceed but in the papers from 2009-2016 there was nothing like part-A instead there were titles which i listed above so you please tell which part to attempt.

    1. diff between ceed n uceed is that uceed doesn't ask for design/sketch questions juts like ceed exam has. So, whatever ques apart from sketching or design-solving or writing etc can be considered for uceed.

  54. do we have to make portfolio for NID for the undergraduate exam.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, portfolio is not required for BDes. DAT (prelims) is same for both bdes and mdes, while DAT (mains) for mdes has studio test as well as interview (where portfolio is actually required). But DAT (mains) for bdes is just sketching and some hands on work, with mostly no portfolio. You can chk pg 16-17 of this brochure

      http://admissions.nid.edu/NIDA_Handbook17-18.pdf

      btw, are all links working in resource page ?

    2. whenever i am trying to open links its showing DNS Server not found. also the pictures uploaded are not visible. Plz help

    3. Must be the problem with either browser settings or internet settings itself. Check the privacy settings of your internet and browser. Also if u r using chrome, try in mozilla, or vice versa and see the result. Links are working in my laptops browser.

    4. I could help you with this as I cleared NID last year. Its not mandatory to have a portfolio for Bdes DAT, but its surely recommended. They'll wanna see all that you have ever drawn/crafted/performed in the Interview, so dont hold back!

  56. Sir is there any studio test or portfolio in the phase 2 of NID this year for BDES? Because now i am seeing 2 phases of DAT(prelims and mains). Also what will be included in mains?

    1. Phase 2 for bdes is a hands on work, kind of studio test only, but no portfolio or interview according to the statement in the brochure. You can check the official brochure for details.

  59. "UCEED score allows one to go for private institutes"
    what it means ?
    which insitiute?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Some private design institutes also accept uceed score for bdes. You can check individual institute for their selection criteria. If u have uceed score, then u can surpass the institute's own DAT exams if any.

      Delete
    2. I don't remember, I've to search again, but tell me,
      Are u aiming for private institutes only ? y concerned much abt that ?
      My suggestion is target for IIT's, IIITDM, UPES and if you couldn't get, then look for alternatives, as of know spend time for prep.
      Anyway check this insti as an example - http://itmuniversity.ac.in/

    1. Practicing once or twice the previous papers doesn't mean that you are ready for the exam. Syllabus is vast and one need to study till the last date by going through as many topics as possible, especially updating oneself with GA/GK topics. Keep going through new topics.

    1. I've already mentioned in my reply to ur previous comment above. Previous years papers r just a way to help u familiarize with the pattern n to tell u the time that u r consuming for answering those papers n the areas u need to improve. So solving them again n again might not help unless u study topics separately.
      Anyway check u covered the below list

      1. Terms related to the design fields in NID like weaving, animation etc,
      2. GK on day-to-day used products
      3. GK on famous personalities, sports men, books, authors, epics,
      4. Abbreviations - full forms of indexes
      5. current affairs - V.imp
      6. Patterns, Paper cuts,
      7. Any GK related to NID, NID publications, faculty awards etc
      8. Knowledge on Color
      9. English comprehension -meaning deduction from para's, sentences,

  72. Sir what will be the 2nd phase of NID DAT? Is portfolio necessary for NID DAT? I don't have anything for my portfolio cause most of my drawings are digital and they are based around my personal life like friends, trips, etc So they won't get the vibes around the drawing. And if I want to opt for Film and Video communications then there is no possible reason for being good in drawing aesthetics. :(

    He is interested in this course but i think b.des would not be fine for him as he has prob with colors...
    So sir tell me if i am right and imp. of colors for bdes

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ya, it might be a problem being color blinded, as a designer one should differentiate and play with colors, so according to me, its not advisable. But as a try, ask him to write to uceed email or call to uceed helpline and check if he is allowed to take part. If they say it's ok, then just let him go ahead :)
