NIFT SITUATION TEST Examination Date – Last week of April

Situation test is to test the student’s 3-Dimensional thinking and material handling skills over a given time span of 2 hours.

Even before you start practice making 3-D models/prototype, try to look around and get inspired. Try to go through design magazines and websites which can inspire you.

Situation Test has 20% weightage, and is an important deciding factor, in your admission.

Situation Test Students who have applied for Bachelor of Design Programme are called for Situation Test after clearing their written test.

Try to understand and grasp the form and shapes around you and how it can be transformed into an object. It’s about getting inspired and working according with a ‘theme’. Here is a quick tip to make this easier for you. Choose any theme; say I have to make a flower vase on the theme “spring forest”. The first thing to do would be to determine your keywords that would depict the mood, warm, jovial, tender, enthusiastic, peppy, graceful etc. Decide a colour scheme which would be earthy colours here since the theme is spring forest. Now, not what all elements can come under the theme i.e., trees, flowers, butterflies, birds etc. Say, I take an element ‘butterfly’ and take inspiration from it. Note that my ‘theme’ and ‘inspiration’ are two different things (inspiration comes from an element which comes under the theme). Now, it’s up to your creativity on how you use the butterfly to depict the mood or keywords which in turn will reflect the theme. Like you may get inspired from the shape of a butterfly and make the flower vase or get inspired from the prints and colours which you can incorporate in the flower vase . In short, the design process would be like….



Choose theme
Write down keywords that depict mood
Decide a colour scheme
Note down the element

Now, transform the element into a 3-D object with the given colour scheme and should depict the keywords. It’s done! Just remember this mantra and mention all this in a write-up. I bet the jury would be more than impressed to see your design/working process.

NIFT calls students, three times the number of seats, for the final and qualifying round of Situation Test. NIFT Situation Test is held at the various NIFT Centers all across the country.

Remember that you have a time limit. Hence, do not get over-ambitious either. Focus on ‘neatness’. Even a lamest-possible-idea might look fine if it is executed neatly while some of the most creative-out-of-the-box-ideas might look ugly and shabby if not executed well.
