NID STUDIO TESTNID conducts 1-2 day workshops at NID Ahmadabad after the declaration of results of the Design Aptitude Test. This workshop is known as Studio test. As a policy, NID shortlists 3 times the number of seats for the Studio test. About 300 students will be selected for UG and 750 students will be selected for PG.

The Studio Tests are also followed by Personal Interview & Portfolio Review. The studio test & interview are equally important to clear Phase 2 of the exam.

NID Studio Tests vary for each design discipline. They are generally split in 6 parts:

Doodling, Material handling, 3D modeling, Audio-visual test, Observation test and Thematic & Psychometric test.

The Interview is conducted by a panel of people from different field such as design, communication, psychology, teaching etc. They will ask you personal questions and test your aptitude and attitude towards design and your environment. The Portfolio Review is an important aspect of the interview process. The students need to be able to prepare and present their best pieces of art and design work.

Both Studio test and Interview are equally important for clearing the entrance exam. During interview, portfolio plays an important role. Your portfolio is studied by the panel of people conducting the interview and you can demonstrate your best piece of work through your portfolio.

Many students clear 1st round but limited no. of students clear their second round. For cracking the second phase you need to do real practical exercises plus you need expert guidance for 3-D model making and portfolio preparation guidance along with the interview tips- how to face interview.

For 2nd round, all the selected students from all over India are required to come for Studio test and Interview at Ahmedabad for 2 days.
