With just a few more days left, here is what designing students can do to confidently face the exams.
Eye On Detail
Make use of all the various resources available to you, such as newspapers, online sites, magazines, advertisements, etc. By paying attention to these resources you might just get a few fresh ideas that will come in handy during the examination.
It is difficult to predict NID questions. Try to give smart and creative answers. Ensure that you have enough practice and make the best use of the opportunity as you can showcase your skills.
The more you practice, the better you are going to get at the task. Practicing makes you confident and helps you excel. You should try to sketch anything and everything. This will give you an edge over your competitors if you are able to sketch different things.
Proper planning is essential as this will help students complete the paper on time. In order to this allot a certain amount of time to each question and sticking to the time allotted is important. You will have more than enough time to add in your finishing touches.
Get Familiar With Design, Symbolism And Conventions
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.
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.
Focus On Enriching Your Sketching Style
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.
