Items such as study materials, calculators, etc. are strictly prohibited in the exam and no applicant must be found in possession of them.
Login on Time
It is recommended to log in at least 60 minutes prior to the exam to ensure a smooth verification process. Once the candidate logs in they need to complete the camera verification process & select the paper. Subsequently, a QR code will be displayed on the screen for scanning and connecting with the second device/ mobile phone. As soon as the QR will successfully be scanned the camera will be activated.
Place the Camera Properly
After the camera has been activated, students need to place the second device/ mobile phone in a manner such that the back/ side view of the candidate is visible throughout the entire exam. Candidates will be able to take the NIFT entrance exam only after connecting the mobile and completing camera verification.
Pay Attention to Instructions
Keep your ears open and pay attention to all that your invigilator has to say. Also, look out for the instructions mentioned on the NIFT admit card to avoid any chaos or confusion.

A link to launch the test will be made available on the admission portal of NIFT. Candidates will have to log in using their roll number & password sent to the registered e-mail id. An individual will be able to appear for the exam only after successfully logging into the examination system.
Manage Your Time Wisely
Time is a major challenge while appearing for NIFT 2022 so do not let it defeat you. There is a limited time to answer questions and doing so requires a lot of practice and decision-making. Make sure to not waste your time on one question. You can always come back to them at the end. Leave some time for revision so that you can re-check and re-consider.
Avoid Presuming Answers
NIFT follows a negative marking scheme so candidates must try not to do guesswork. It is encouraged to not presume the answers as 0.25 mark will be reduced for every incorrect attempt. Marking multiple answers will also not be considered while calculating the score.
Focus on Creativity
Creativity and out-of-the-box thinking should be the main focus while attempting the answers of NIFT CAT. Candidates must try displaying their creativity more through visuals than words.
Do Not Use Unfair Means
Cheating or bringing notes to the room can lead to the cancellation of paper. Also, if a candidate indulges in suspicious acts or unfair practices like trying to share the screen, leaving the place, talking to someone else etc. an online invigilator or AI-Enabled System will intervene and disqualify the candidate then and there. Toilet breaks are also not allowed during the exam. Candidates can keep water with them if they want. Keep focusing on your paper and try attempting every question accurately and creatively.
