    • Environmental and social awareness: General awareness of environmental factors (such as climate, population, water, vegetation, pollution, weather, natural resources) and their implications on the design of products, images, infrastructure and environment. Awareness of design terminologies, 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 analyse given information logically and select the most appropriate solutions; ability to weigh opinions, arguments or solutions against appropriate criteria; 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.
    • Language and creativity: Ability to understand passages in commonly used English language; 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 understand the context, the users and the constraints and select the most appropriate solution for a given design problem.
    • Observation and design sensitivity: Ability to detect concealed properties in day-to-day life and think critically about them. Ability to discern subtle differences in visual properties and aesthetic outcomes.
    Note: The suggested topics are exhaustive and indicative of the nature of questions. However, the CEED 2022 may not cover all the topics.

    Part-B of CEED 2022 will have questions related to these topics:

    Shortlisting: Marks obtained in Part-A will be used to shortlist candidates. The cut-off marks (d) for Part-A for shortlist candidates in the GEN category will be + (s/2) = d, where and s are the average mark and standard deviation of distribution of marks obtained by ALL the candidates in Part-A of CEED 2022. The and s will be rounded-off to two decimal places. Candidates belonging to the reserved categories shall have to fulfil a relaxed cut-off mark, which will be 0.9d for OBC-NCL/EWS and 0.5d for SC/ST/PwD.

    Part-B answer books will be evaluated manually ONLY for those candidates who are shortlisted from Part-A. Part-B of CEED contains subjective questions and there are no model solutions for the same. It will be evaluated holistically on a set of criteria given in the question. There is NO provision for RE-EVALUATION or RE-TOTALLING in CEED. Request for re-evaluation or re-totalling will NOT be entertained under any circumstances.

    The final CEED score will be calculated by giving 25% weightage to marks obtained in Part-A and 75% weightage to marks obtained in Part-B, after the above calculation.
