There are two stages for admission into the Academy:

Stage 2: Personal Interview (including portfolio evaluation /material handling skills test for Design streams).

This stage consists of two tests namely General Proficiency Test (GPT) and Design Aptitude Test (DAT).

General Proficiency Test (GPT) is administered to judge a students’ proficiency in the English language (comprehension, vocabulary and expression), Language Ability, Logical reasoning, Quantitative ability, Data Interpretation, basic Mathematics, etc.

Design Aptitude Test (DAT) examines a students’ aptitude for creativity, drawing, design ability, power of observation and imagination, sensitivity to environment and communication skills.

STAGE 2: PERSONAL INTERVIEW (including portfolio evaluation/material handling skills test for Design streams):

A student is judged on various parameters namely:
Career Focus
Maturity & Confidence
General Awareness, Creative and Lateral Thinking
Ability to Analyze / Logical Reasoning
Intellectual / Creative Ability
Portfolio evaluation
Material Handling Skills (for Design streams)

Your portfolio is the most important aspect of your application. Your portfolio should show a selection of your best, recent artwork or design. Your portfolio work should reflect your ideas, interests, experience and abilities in design or art field to date. It should also reflect your personality. Work presented can be in any media (including film or video), in finished or sketch form and the result of an assigned project or a self-directed exploration.
