Drawing Test

Candidate has to attempt two questions within 90 minutes. The drawing aptitude is judged on the following aspects –

  • Ability to sketch a given object proportionately and rendering the same in visually appealing manner;
  • Visualising and drawing the effects of light on the object and shadows cast on surroundings;
  • Sense of perspective drawing;
  • Combining and composing given three dimensional elements to form a building or structural form;
  • Creating interesting two dimensional composition using given shapes and forms;
  • Creating visual harmony using colours in given composition;
  • Understanding of scale and proportions;
  • Drawing from memory through pencil sketch on themes from day to day experiences.

The Answer to each question in the ‘drawing’ paper will be examined by more than one examiner independently and the marks are to be averaged. The primary emphasis in scoring the drawing section is on the candidate’s drawing, imagination and observation skills. The candidate’s sense of proportion and perspective are also evaluated together with sense for colour and composition.
