Q:   What is the basis of NIFT 2024 seat allotment?

A:

The allotment of seats will be based on: 

  1. Choice opted at the time of counseling registration (academic programs + campuses)
  2. The category of the candidate
  3. Seat intake in the college opted for admission
  4. NIFT 2024 merit rank of the candidate. 

NIFT 2024 seat allotment process will be conducted in four regular and one spot rounds.

The 1st round of seat allotment has been declared on June 21, 2024.

The counseling registration was conducted from May 5-15, 2024. Candidates also had to enter and lock choices by June 19, 2024 (midnight).

 

Q:   When can I download the NID DAT 2024 answer sheets?

A:

The National Institite of Design (NID) will release the answer sheets of the candidate after the declaration of the FINAL results. Further, the answer sheets will only be available on request, only after the admission process is complete.

The answer sheet will not be issued during the admission process.

To request the answer sheet for the admission cycle 2024-25, the candidate will have to make a payment of INR 1000 online/ per exam. The candidate will also have to furnish the NID DAT 2024 admit card duly signed by the invigilator and seal of the exam center with the request. 

The answer sheet will be sent to the candidate within 15-20 days after receiving the payment.

The National Institute of Design will, however, not release any answer keys for the DAT Prelims exam.

 

Q:   What is the utility of the NIFT 2024 recorded responses?

A:

The NTA also releases the recorded responses for the NIFT exam. The recorded responses are the corbon copy of the candidate’s answer sheet.

The recorded responses are meant to bring transparency to the conduct of the NIFT entrance exam. For instance, the candidate can’t be unfairly penalized or awarded marks, as the answer sheets will be in the public.

It is because the candidate can challenge the result if there is an anomaly.

Further, the candidate can use the NIFT recorded responses to correctly calculate their probable scores.
