Admission Process

It is a specifically designed test that assesses an individual’s various dimensions. TDV has imbibed a multicultural approach and is spread across the nation in cities like- Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore, Bhopal, Kochi, Lucknow, Chandigarh, Noida, and Kolkata. The institute’s entrance test is branched out to multiple channels reflecting upon the intrinsic personality traits that a capable design curator must inherit.

Correlative quiz 01

It tests the awareness level of aspirantsin the form of a kind of treasure hunt that offers clues, and one has to navigate to reach somewhere; designed to make them understand correlations between people/ places/ objects/ events etc.to test the presence of mind in reading the question correctly because there are trick questions.

Comprehensive Question 02

This is for ideation and visual representation.The potential for all the attributes is evaluated in this question-the ability. To imagine a scenario in a holistic manner and in parts (courage to think outside the box/compassion). To visualize the representation and draw clearly/proportionately (aptitude/skill). To observe from memory/add details to the imagined environment and make it enriched and vivid (awareness/perseverance)

Question for taking positions 03

In his book,‘ViP-Vision in Product Design’, Dr. Paul Hekkert says that design is about taking positions; building arguments on why it is what it is and being able to justify with logic and rationale. This section tests

  • The ability to develop an opinion or a perspective of an issue; one that is not random and whimsical but justified convincingly
  • To evaluate values and priorities among this age group
  • To represent innovatively, the ideation although the focus is on the design thinking

Creating thumbnails 04

This gives the student an opportunity to express the core concept or the basic concept of what he/she is trying to express and are very useful in visual communication. The exercise is designed to address multiple meanings:

  • To evaluate lateral thinking based on the interpretation-from the most obvious to least obvious.
  • The response could also indicate an awareness of what is happening in the world.

Situational test 05

The situational test at TDV tests the candidates with realistic yet hypothetical scenarios and asks the test takers to build models around the same, which has been identified as a brilliant method to check the creative and innovative skills with respect to spontaneity. The test focuses to surface the inventive/experimental/imaginative and artistic capabilities of the candidates by putting them into a time-bound situation and indulging their minds to construct something meaningful. The situational test helps to delineate the constructive thought-process of the candidate as well as his behavioral tendency and personality.

Personal Interview & Portfolio discussion 06

A precise and clear communication of the candidate individually, to the designated mentor. A brief discussion with mentor about personal goals, aspirations, opinions and ideologies.
