  1. I have passed prelims for mdesign textile but i have my universityfinal exams on my studio test day at Chennai. Is there any way to change the test date

    • No, the portfolio isn’t required for the Interview but it would be beneficial and preferred to have something for portfolio, in case if they asked for, anything like drawing/sculptures/scripts/cartoons/Best From Waste anything so there should be something which you can show to them.
      There is a 2-day schedule for the tests because there are 2 rounds for it:
      round 1 will be the NID Studio test for candidates of B.Des and M.Des
      Round 2 will be the Interview

  2. Can you tell how many tests are there in first round and the time limit for each of them? and when will be the interview conducted?
