Now, since the Nift situation tests will be happening soon, we want you to explore with materials. The situation test tests your material management abilities and ideas.
Idea generation is what most of you will be able to do, because you do that for a lot of other exercises, almost for everything. But then, those you apply on things that you’ve been working with like colours or sketching, etc.
So, now concentrate on:
Innovative use of materials that you can come up with.
Get handy with different materials such as straws, tooth picks, clay, origami paper, etc. Get used to using the cutter, usually under panic situation and time constrains, students tend to cut fingers at the peak time.
Carry at least 2 bandages with you for the situation test.
Learn to stay calm while attempting the final test which can only happen if you practice
well before hand. Do practice on questions keeping the time constrain in mind.
Do practice for write ups, it carries weigtage in the exam.
Look out for videos on the internet for craft ideas and material handling.
Get into the practice of quick sketching.
Learn origami techniques.
Work on how, if required, will you create a ball (circular shape) with paper.
