- What is the situation test ?
This is a two hour test held at the NIFT campus for those students who clear the first part of the exam. this is the final stage in the exam for getting through this dream institute to study an under an undergraduate course of your choice. after this there is no other test and NIFT comes out with the final results. once you have appeared for this exam, you will have to wait for another month or so to get to know if you are going to be studying at NIFT or not !

- What is the task ?
the task is to create a 3D model which is self standing , well presented and pot raying the given theme. what you make would be judged by a panel of NIFT faculty and industry experts and marked. this test carries a weightage of 20% of the total. sounds like a small percentage but in the stiff competition, a mark more in this test can get you through or give you a better ranking which would ultimately come handy while choosing the center from the various NIFT locations.
- What are they looking for in my creation ?
a spark. enthusiasm. dedication. ability. uniqueness of idea. a go-getter attitude. a spirited approach to work. anything which tells them that this kid is definitely capable of something. they are not looking for a readymade designer but someone who has the charecterstics which would make a good designer. and when someone has been on a job to liook for this type of talent amongst so many, one develops an eye to spot that in the work. this is exactly what the examiners do. they are on a lookout for raw talent which they can groom into future designers.
