Questions are often left open-ended with the aim to test whether you can present the design well. Make sure you know the design conventions as that'll help you answer efficiently.


Materials Used

Make sure you have all the equipment or material for the examination. Ensure that the materials used are of good quality. Trying your hand at calligraphy and enhancing your abilities can make a simple image look lively.

Your customised sketch will definitely fetch you better marks. Try finding different types of shading techniques and strokes while practicing. Sketching is a time-consuming process. Estimate the space and then sketch in faint hand to get a sense of proportions and once this is done, rush into sketching. Sketch as fast as you can.

Preference To Details

If the preference is given to one's sketch, it gives life to the drawing. The details help people to understand clearly what the applicant wishes to portray from the sketch.

Lastly, take care of yourself, don't stress yourself out and you'll do just fine.
