Fantastic! Glad that you are considering equipping yourself with a degree. Your experience will help you tremendously through your MDes program.


To prepare for IISc or IIT, you need to build your Creative Thinking skills, Sketching skills and Aptitude (Spacial, Analytical etc.). Its hard to balance work and preparation for these programs - but if you structure your prep time, you will easily manage:


  • Do consider NID PG programs - since the exam is similar in structure to CEED
  • Go through the study material / mock tests available on this platform. You will have to spend about 3 to 4 hours a week till January 2020
  • You can also submit your sketches for evaluation from expert design faculty
  • If you find the need to go for physical classes, we suggest DQ Labs online / physical classrooms depending on your preferences
  • So to sum up, you can do the following
  • Physical Classroom sessions - about 4 hours per week
  • Online sessions - about 3 hours per week
  • DQ Edge - about 4 hours per week


This will be sufficient for you to excel in the exam.


All the best!


with 138 marks in NATA AND 96.06% IN JEE PAPER 2 AND 66% IN 10+2 CAN I GET ADMISSION IN RV OR BMS COLLEGE ? 2 years ago

Latest Answer · 2 years ago · 0 claps

Your NATA and JEE Paper 2 marks are very good. Unfortunately, your board percentage may pose a challenge.


Typically, to get into RV or BMS, you would need to be within the top 100 Karnataka CET Architecture ranks i.e. 130+ in NATA and over 90% in boards.


If you are extremely keen on these two colleges, then I can suggest contacting them for a management seat. You could also consider other schools like

  • Nitte School of Architecture
  • Reva University School of architecture
  • CMR Unviersity School of Architecture
  • Wadiyar Centre for Architecture, Mysore
  • BGS School of Architecture, Bangalore
  • Dayanada Sagar School of Architecture, Kanakapura Road, Bangalore etc.


Hope this helps! All the best!

Well, you do not have much time, but you still have sufficient time!


You need to put in a lot of effort till July 7th.

  1. 4 hours a day on DQ Edge
  2. 4 hours a day at DQ Labs classrooms
  3. 1 Mock test a day


This will help you out tremendously. You will need to focus a lot on your sketching skills.


Absolutely hard - but not impossible for you.


All the best!

There are about 1000 architecture seats in Karnataka that are offered through CET. While your NATA score is good, your board percentage may be a drawback.


Suggest you do consider management seats as a back up plan. You could also consider schools like:


  • Nitte School of Architecture
  • Reva University School of architecture
  • CMR Unviersity School of Architecture
  • Wadiyar Centre for Architecture, Mysore
  • BGS School of Architecture, Bangalore
  • Dayanada Sagar School of Architecture, Kanakapura Road, Bangalore etc.


Hope this helps,


All the best!

how much nata score is required to get admission in manipal university karnataka? 2 years ago

Latest Answer · a year ago · 0 claps

Manipal has their own admission process for the seats. They usually take in 160 seats - but it depends on the approvals of the CoA.


This can change every year, however, if you have a board percentage of above 85% and above 130 in NATA, you stand a good chance of getting in.
