The Situation Test is a component of the entrance exam for admission to the National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) in India. It is a hands-on test that evaluates a candidate’s ability to take a concept and create a three-dimensional object using provided materials within a specified timeframe.
The Situation Test is designed to test a candidate’s creativity, innovation, and problem-solving skills. It is conducted after the written test and is usually held in April or May.
During the Situation Test, candidates are given a specific theme or problem to solve and a set of materials to work with, such as paper, cardboard, fabric, or clay. They are then required to create a three-dimensional object based on the given theme or problem within a specified time frame.
The test is evaluated based on a set of criteria, such as creativity, innovation, functionality, use of materials, and overall presentation. The final score of the Situation Test is combined with the scores of the written test to determine a candidate’s overall rank in the entrance exam.
