UCEED


Undergraduate level CEED termed as 'UCEED' is newest of it's kind and this year (2015) the first paper is going to be conducted. It's basically an entrance to  B.Des, bachelors in design. Unfortunately, the syllabus is so wide and diverse that straight forward books and materials are not available or difficult to present. So, I've tried to gather and cover the topics (syllabus) just like I did for CEED exam. I have also provided some model practice test for your better understanding so as to give you some idea about the exam process and the type of questions to be asked. Hope you enjoy going through my posts by finding these useful. For your convenience, I have detailed UCEED syllabus at the end of this page.


Note: UCEED syllabus/questions are same as CEED Part A, so I have also included CEED mock tests in this page for your practice. You may also go through CEED previous papers to experience UCEED kind of questions

UCCED Syllabus


As a brief, for those who are new to UCCED, and who are not aware of the syllabus , I have just copied the syllabus and content of UCEED from their (IITB official) brochure. 

The exam will have questions from the following six topics:

Visualization and spatial ability
Pictorial and diagrammatic questions to test: understanding of transformation and/or manipulation of 2D shapes and 3D objects and their spatial relationships; knowledge of practical and everyday mechanical and scientific concepts.

Observation and design sensitivity 
Ability to detect concealed properties in ordinary things, people, situations, and events, and thinking critically about them. Applying attention to certain details, analysing, reasoning, classifying, inferring and predicting. Ability to discern subtle differences in visual properties and aesthetic outcomes.

Environmental and social awareness
General awareness of environmental factors such as climate, population, water, vegetation, pollution, weather, natural resources etc., and their implications on the design of products, images, infrastructure and environment. Awareness of social and cultural connection with design, history of the designed artefact, and socially responsible and environmentally sustainable design responses. History of art, sculpture and literature.

Analytical and logical reasoning 
Ability to look at information, be it qualitative or quantitative in nature, and discern patterns within the information. Ability to weigh opinions, arguments or solutions against appropriate criteria. Ability to check for hidden bias or hidden assumptions and whether evidence and argument support conclusions. Ability to use logic and structured thinking to deduce from a short passage, which of a number of statements is the most accurate response to a posed question. Data Interpretation, brainteasers, and patterns.

Language and creativity 
Ability to understand and use Standard English. Reading comprehension, knowledge of English grammar such as sentence structure and usage, the use of tenses, verb patterns, articles, and active and passive constructions etc., and vocabulary skills. Ability to think creatively in terms of alternatives, ability to distinguish innovative options and think out of the box.

Design thinking and problem solving 
Ability to use visual analogies, metaphors, signs and symbols. Ability to understand complexity, identify problem, generate alternatives, evaluate options and select solutions.

    I found this "knowledge of practical and everyday mechanical and scientific concepts." written in the first part of syllabi. Can you please tell how it is related to visualization part ? And thank you for all the content you have provided till now, really of great help!

  8. sir give us the final suggestions so that we can score more and more in UCEED,as our preperation is fentabulous sooo wanna score more than 80% ?????

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I just thought of not bothering people with too many posts during the last couple of days. Anyway here are some final suggestions for everyone

      1. Stay calm and relaxed. Everybody will be in tense, and those who stay cool and answer questions - with their mind present will definitely clear the exam

      2. Stop going through lengthy new topics - don't waste much of your time going through new topics that consumes much time. Example being reading comprehension

      3. Your confidence is your weapon, be confident.......!

      4. Sleep well before exam

      5. Careful with negative markings - don't jump to answer all answers, think before you answer. Answer only when the probability of correct answer is greater than 70%. Trying to answer all ques is a bad strategy! Try to be smart in choosing questions

      6. The exam has three sections, right? - take the sections that is easy to you, like for me, MCQ type are easy rather than numerical. Numericals don't have options right ? Or it's like answer all the questions that doesn't have negative marking

      7. Pray to God - not for success but for your practice to go well. Even God can't help, if you're not smart and didn't practice well. Utilize the available time (as much as possible) for practice rather than on social networks.

      Finally All the best :)

    1. Hello Bahuguna,

      Sorry for the delay, I just checked the question. It's basically to identify front view, right ? If the rectangular rod is to be aligned over a cone, then coz the cone is circular and if it's say a circular rod, then the front view (where the the cone and the circular rod interacts) will be a straight line, but here the case is square rod, so, it has to be fit into a circular shape, which will take the shape as shown in the option A. Unfortunately, I cannot make a picture at this moment, so just imagine the case. Anyway for now, don't spend much time on a single question. Try as many questions as possible at this point of time.

      All the best.

  12. Hello Meru Vashist,

    Thank you for all the good words, accidentally your comment got delved and I'm unable to undo it. Anyway, I've gone through your comment. Since your expected score is 141, there's a good chances of getting call for admission. If you can check the above discussions, we have discussed that the expected cut off would be around 80-90. So I suppose you're on safer side (although it's my guess)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hey Bhanu sir,
    You must have seen the paper. Do you think many students have got marks above 100 and will iit decrease the cut off if not much of them have scored above 100?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There's a chance that cutoff;s might go down, although not compulsory, but chances occur when the avg performance is less (like u have mentioned). The other side of the issue is since the no. of participants are more, we cannot go and judge with the above assumption, same people might get equal scores! better to wait for the results instead of getting confused.

    1. It's still unclear to me, whether they will assume any more criteria for selection. Might be your percentile or some other way. Anyway, I'm expecting IITB's studio/aptitude test as screening ! let's wait till they release the official notifications.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. If you are gud at part B, then you shld try NID too! I never want to depress anyone. All I can say is if you missed something, then something better is waiting for you. So, if you can, go for NID. In the worst case, you can choose other options - either getting into engineering or say joining a degree course (like bsc/diploma design course), simultaneously practice for UCEED for the coming year, then cracking with good score (Actually one of our blog friend is doing this way, they shared this idea with me). What do u say ?

  22. Thx a lot for your suggestion. m commerc student i think i should go for fine arts or visual arts it will inhence my artistic knowledge n side by side i will prepare for uceed right?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah, it's kind of good idea, but since you are already good at sketchingn and creative works, you can directly try for any of the available courses like bdes, NID, CPET, Symiosis and many more to mention. If in case you also miss this years admission in these institutes, then the left option take some course (like you wished fine arts) and then prepare for UCEED or other similar exams simultaneously. I'd say, you may also try for bsc animation, multimedia or other courses if you are really interested, since you already are good at sketching! Let me know the status of your exam, I mean which part (type of questions) of UCEED exam that you made many mistakes - like geometry picture type, reasoning, eng comprehension etc ?

      Delete
  23. Geometry ! I m week in maths. I got zero in part A. My total was 76. I havnt attempted a single question from part A

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I see, then you better go with your plan of fine arts instead of taking up technical related courses for now. But make sure that you learn those concepts (aptitude and geometry) along with your fine arts course, if not as a part of the course module, but as part own f your future prep/plan. Remember, aptitude and geo study CAN'T BE NEGLECTED if you are aiming for design courses like that of UCEED, CEED, CEPT, or even other private institute exams. NID is a bit different case (I guess) where you can clear the exam even if your math aptitude level is less! BUT you should be good at art/sketching!

      It's not required to be completely good at maths, only a part (reasoning and deductive kind) are required as part of aptitude preparation. If you can understand the logic in solving some kind of questions, then you can automatically solve more related questions. If you have gone through this blog's resource page (UCEED materials page), you would've noted that the first topic that I included and recommended is 'Geometry and image type questions' . They really help in increasing your observation/visualization and imagination skills. So, please start working and preparing on them (even if you focus on NID!). Once you solve some questions, you will enjoy doing more questions since you would feel that as easy one! Simultaneously I think aptitude skills improves.

      Hope this helped you with your prep plan. Gud luk :)

    1. Yes, of course, you are eligible for other design institutes, but make sure that you meet their minimal requirements, scores etc. You can gt those details in individual institute websites. Keep an eye for institute notifications and dates for safer side. Also, I remember one our friend, shared some links which help us to get an overview of the list of design institutes offering bdes. Please go through them if you need details. You can find that in our Facebook timeline - I suppose.

    4. but sirr!!! UCEED 2015 being the first UCEED examination, it will be the first attempt for all candidates....... so the students who passed 12th in 2014 can eligible for uceed 2016..... i think so :\

    5. Any candidate can only have two chances for UCEED that too in consecutive years. And according to UCEED flyer, the following has been mentioned

      "The candidate should have passed their Class XII (or equivalent) examination in 2014, OR passed or appeared in 2015."

      Of course this is for 2015 UCEED exam, so for 2016, I guess, they might consider from 2015. But yes, one way your assumption is right and 2014 passed out might get a chance. Anyway better to note the age criteria too

      "The candidate should have been born on or after October 1, 1995" for UCEED

    1. You can do mdes even after doing engineering, in fact many of ceed applicants have engineering background. But since bdes course is specific and if u have real interest towards complete design just like that taught in mdes, then you should look for bdes. This course might blend your design skills from the very first year. Do, check your interest, which kind of design do you wish to take ? You can check the basic difference between mdes and engineering in the link that i provided in the comment below. Hopefully you will get yourself cleared. Also don't try to take all the exams, focus on some couple of exams, and aim for them. Do revert if u still have confusions!

  50. Sir i m a student of class 12th and in case if i dont get selected in uceed what are some other recognised colleges for b tech design

    ReplyDelete

    1. I think there is no specific specialization for design through B.Tech. Although after btech u have many options for design either through mdes or by way of mtech, ms etc Look for NID, Architecture and planning schools for design options.

    1. Every year and for all the design exams, there will be sample paper or mock tests, UCEED had mock test this may, but even I'm not finding the link for this Jan. Probably they will update soon, watch IITB uceed page regularly to check if they release sometime before next week.

    1. Anyone's success is proportional to the level of positiveness in them. The more one is feared, the more is he/she falling into traps. So, it's upto you to make or break your confidence! Don't know what you are upto untill now and although it's very late to start preparation, but it's never late - utilise the time left with you and make use of the resources. The best thing for those starting at this time is just rely on topics or sources available at hand rather than spending time searching for topics which eats directly the time for preparation.
      UCEED pattern is known and unlike in CEED or NID, uceed has no design or sketch part, so relax yourself, sit back for half an hour, overview the syllabus and understand which part you can cover quickly and which part is difficult to cover in the next couple of weeks, plan a schedule of topics to be covered and start working on it. Try not to attempt mock test in the very beginning without any prior practice. Getting less marks in mock test (that's obvious without prior practice) will take your confidence to even more lower levels. Systematic preparation with positive self confidence can help to attain even the top positions at times!

    1. Font questions are like learning literature or a language. We have to observe them and understand the pattern. While, there are several font groups belonging to similar family, learning them as such would help you. I've already shared plenty of online pages that deals with this family of fonts. You may want to chk that.

    Thank you

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It's not a bad idea to join any institute. If you were able to find some good institute near your living place and if u can afford for the course, then you can join. The only thing is make sure that the institute has good reputation interms of reviews from previous students. For UCEED, the more you study the more will be better, so I should not say that this blog is enough although it covered most part of the topics. So, better start with the "how to start with " page and the resources page that I shared. Also go through prev papers as many times as possible to understand the pattern and get used to that type of ques. Also try CEED ques without fail.

The best thing one can do is to go thru the first two links of this page, posts on "how to prepare" and "timetable". And I always recommend people to start with design aptitude and image based questions. Better you too start with that. Also solve previous paper to get an idea of the pattern.
