Are you an aspirant of Bachelor of Design (B. Des.) program at IIT Bombay, IIT Guwahati, IIT Hyderabad or IIITDM Jabalpur? Then you must be thoroughly prepared on the mechanics of the Undergraduate Common Entrance Exam for Design (UCEED) exam.

As a aspirant of one of India’s premier institutes, you must be prepared on every aspect of the exam and ensure there are no surprises! Let’s decode the exam step by step. Firstly let’s start with the UCEED eligibility criterion.
Having understood the UCEED eligibility criterion, you must be absolutely clear about this:-
Just writing the UCEED exam or being on the rank list neither guarantees nor provides a seat at the institute! UCEED qualified candidates need to apply separately for B.Des admissions.
Also finally the exam date is slated on January 19, 2019.
After a basic overview of the eligibility criterion, one must be crystal clear on the exam structure, pattern & syllabus as the next step.
The questions paper is 3 hours & is computer based with a total of 300 marks.
It has 3 sections, which are:-
Section A: Numerical Answer Type (NAT) questions. Here the answer is a number & no choices will be shown for these questions
Section B: Multiple Select Questions (MSQ). Each MSQ has one or more correct answer(s) out of the four given choices.
Section C: Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ). Each MCQ has four choices out of which only one is the correct answer
A deeper look into all the sections will give you an idea of what to expect!
Section A: The Numerical Answer Type (NAT) questions
For these questions, the answer is a number & no choices will be shown for these questions. Each correct answer gets 4 marks & there’s no negative marking in this section. Questions not attempted will be given zero mark. This section contains 20 questions. Whereas the Section B consists of Multiple Select Questions (MSQ).

Every university then has a rank cut off list that is renewed every year therefore there isn't a fixed good score as such.
