+ Intent of Entrance Screening for Design
This 'examination' and its parts and stages will in actuality be exercises to enable you to give us A COMPLETE INTRODUCTION TO YOURSELF, and in the process, help us discover the real you - We want to know WHO YOU ARE as against 'How good your skills are....'
We are really NOT very interested only in your drawing and painting skills- the boringly common training given by Coaching Centres to supposedly help you get admission to Design Institutions. We at ARCH wish to give you the most authentic and genuine chance to show yourself beyond the superficiality of these few taught – learned - practiced skills.
We are VERY INTERESTED in HOW you THINK. In your Perceptions, Attitude and Approach towards the world that surrounds you. Not so much in your knowledge, but more in your Openness to Learn, Perseverance, Focus and Toughness to take on challenges in the process of Creative Problem Solving. AND your ability to SURVIVE sanely in a creative environment!
We want potentially introspective and thinking aspirants with the right spirit and attitude to take up Design as a responsible profession.
This Entrance Screening for Design therefore has the bare minimum of the usual Question – Answers approach.
The Exam will be EXPERIENTIAL, USEFULLY EDUCATIVE, and FUN (unlike school education ! ..and all other Entrance Screenings for Design)
As a bold and innovative step in Screening for Design 2021, ARCH is going to test student aspirants in the areas of specializations they aspire to, or choose from the available fields of Design.
The Complete Entrance Screening for Design Process is aimed at examining
'ATTITUDE' as against the existing, overly measured, 'APTITUDE'. It will evaluate and assess:
- Psychological Consonance and Endowments for Design eg. Empathy, creativity, toughness etc
- Perseverance & Focus
- Sense of Humour / appreciation of humour / connections
COMMUNICATION SKILL – in the broadest all encompassing sense – Visual, Verbal, Conceptual, Interpersonal Transactional.
SITUATIONAL THINKING & PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS – actual application towards results – ie Multiple Solution Generation Ability.
