Hello Saima Praveen, yes, you are eligible to apply for the UCEED and NID entrance exams 2024 for admission to National Institute of Design Ahmedabad. The eligibility criteria for both exams is that you must have passed the class 12 examination or equivalent in 2023 or appearing in 2024. There is no age limit for UCEED but for NID DAT you must be born on or after July 1, 2003. Since you have completed your class 12 with the science stream in 2022 and your date of birth is March 15, 2005, you meet the eligibility criteria for both exams. Please note that the application process for both exams typically begins in September-October and the exams are held in January. I recommend that you start preparing for the exams early and visit the official websites of UCEED and NID for more information.
