UCEED

Undergraduate level CEED termed as ‘UCEED’ is newest of it’s kind and this year (2015) the
first paper is going to be conducted. It’s basically an entrance to B.Des, bachelors in design.
Unfortunately, the syllabus is so wide and diverse that straight forward books and materials
are not available or difficult to present. So, I’ve tried to gather and cover the topics (syllabus)
just like I did for CEED exam. I have also provided some model practice test for your better
understanding so as to give you some idea about the exam process and the type of questions
to be asked. Hope you enjoy going through my posts by finding these useful.

Follow the tips for UCEED

The UCEED question paper is set up to mainly check the candidate’s mathematical aptitude.
I O
For the same, the paper consists of geometry type questions that can assess a person’s imagi-

U D
native powers, observation skills, creativity, and lateral thinking.

S T
It is important for the candidates to have knowledge about manipulation and geometry solid
N
transformations. Keeping this in mind, candidates must ensure that they practice UCEED
G
SI
with the aim of improving their imagination, observation, and lateral thinking.

D E
Visualization and observation

AV
B H
Animation movement: This section of the paper deals in step-by-step image move-
ments, which when put together as a whole, creates animation or videos. While attempting
M
these questions, aspirants need to be extremely careful about their observation in each and

SA
every step. While preparing for UCEED exam, aspirants must attempt questions that involve
animation movement.

Solving geometric objects: Solving geometric object type questions is an excellent way
to improve visualization and imagination. Since these two criteria are assessed by the exam-
iners, questions that can calculate the same are included in the exam. While preparing for the
exam, pay special attention to these practice questions.

Tessellations: Also popular by the name of unfolded views, tessellation checks the can-
didate’s ability to unwrap a solid on a flat surface and sketching the unfolded interpretation
on the paper. An aspirant must ensure that he/she practices the same while preparing for the
exam.
Illusions: Illusions are a great way to improve observation skills. Practicing the same can
help extensively in clearing UCEED exam.

Evolution of objects: This section generally includes an object’s product cycle from the
past to the present. A candidate must be capable of firstly observing and then identifying ev-
eryday use objects from the past generation to the new one.

Preparing for questions that can help in assessing abstract, mechanical and mathe-
matical aptitude can be of great help for candidates appearing in UCEED exams.

Abstract tests assess a candidate’s pattern finding and problem-solving ability. Since
these two hold weightage in the UCEED exam, preparing for the same well in ad-
vance is a great decision.
I O
English Comprehension and Language

S T
UCEED exam paper includes questions related to reading comprehension, sentence

practice. Make sure you start preparing for the same in advance, so that when it is
time to appear in the exam, you are well-prepared, and do not consume too much
time in this section of the paper.
D E
Do not Spend too much A V on General Awareness
time

B
Brushing up your generalH awareness is a good idea, but spending too much time on
M animation, and artists.
the same is not a wise thing to do. It is better to invest time in questions related to
A
S
designers, materials,

Reasoning Tests
Practice is the only key to excel in reasoning questions. Practicing reasoning ques-
tions or geometry type questions on a daily basis will give you a fair idea of what
kind of questions one can expect in the exam. Also, since you must have had prac-
ticed enough of these questions, they will come as a no-surprise to you, making it
easy to attempt the questions in the exam.

Keep yourself Updated about Environmental Studies


When creating designs, one should ensure that they are environment-friendly. The
effect of your design must not have a negative impact on the environment’s future.
Also, the ongoing concept of ‘Go Green’ must be kept in mind while creating the de-
signs. A few things that must be considered while creating designs are:

India Language

According to Ethnologue, India is considered to be home to 461 languages, out of


which 14 have been reported to be extinct.

But still there is not a single Indian language that is spoken across its length and
breadth. Hindi is spoken by a majority of North Indians, but it is not a popular means
of communication in the southern part of India. Similarly, South Indian languages such
as Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam are not understood by the people of North
India.

For the convenience of people, the Constitution of India has recognised 22 languages in
the eighth schedule. These are known as Scheduled Languages and constitute the ma-
jor languages of the country. India Language Map provides detailed information about
these languages listed in Schedule VIII of the Constitution and spoken in different
parts of the country.

Indian Hertiage Sites

Near the gardens of the Taj Mahal stands the important


16th-century Mughal monument known as the Red Fort
of Agra. This powerful fortress of red sandstone en-
compasses, within its 2.5-km-long enclosure walls, the
imperial city of the Mughal rulers. It comprises many
fairy-tale palaces, such as the Jahangir Palace and the
Khas Mahal, built by Shah Jahan; audience halls, such as
the Diwan-i-Khas; and two very beautiful mosques.

The first Buddhist cave monuments at Ajanta date from


the 2nd and 1st centuries B.C. During the Gupta period
(5th and 6th centuries A.D.), many more richly decorat-
ed caves were added to the original group. The paintings

influence.

These 34 monasteries and temples, extending over more


than 2 km, were dug side by side in the wall of a high
basalt cliff, not far from Aurangabad, in Maharashtra.
Ellora, with its uninterrupted sequence of monuments
dating from A.D. 600 to 1000, brings the civilization of
ancient India to life. Not only is the Ellora complex a
unique artistic creation and a technological exploit but,
with its sanctuaries devoted to Buddhism, Hinduism
and Jainism, it illustrates the spirit of tolerance that was
characteristic of ancient India.

On the shores of the Bay of Bengal, bathed in the rays
of the rising sun, the temple at Konarak is a monumen-

one of India’s most famous Brahman sanctuaries.

The Great Living Chola Temples were built by kings


of the Chola Empire, which stretched over all of south
India and the neighbouring islands. The site includes
three great 11th- and 12th-century Temples: the Brihad-
isvara Temple at Thanjavur, the Brihadisvara Temple at
Gangaikondacholisvaram and the Airavatesvara Temple
at Darasuram. The Temple of Gangaikondacholisvaram,
built by Rajendra I, was completed in 1035. Its 53-m vi-
mana (sanctum tower) has recessed corners and a grace-
ful upward curving movement, contrasting with the
straight and severe tower at Thanjavur. The Airavates-
vara temple complex, built by Rajaraja II, at Darasuram
features a 24-m vimana and a stone image of Shiva. The
temples testify to the brilliant achievements of the Chola
in architecture, sculpture, painting and bronze casting.

Polygon

In simple mathematics, a polygon can be any 2-dimensional shape that is formed


with straight lines. Be it quadrilaterals or triangles and pentagons, these are all per-
fect examples of polygons. The interesting aspect is that the name of a polygon high-
lights the number of sides it possesses.

For example, a triangle has three sides, and a quadrilateral has four sides. So, any
shape that can be drawn by connecting three straight lines is called a triangle, and
any shape that can be drawn by connecting four straight lines is called a quadrilater-
al.
