When can You start Preparing for Design Entrance Exam
It is critical that you do well in both - your 12th standard board exam and the DESIGN Test. So you can complete the DESIGN Test syllabus before you get into your 12th Standard Exam.
Your preparation depends on how much time you have before you take the DESIGN Test. At Sun Design guru, we always recommend that you start early.
If you are in the 10th Standard:
You could take the 2 year preparation course where you will go through the foundation program and be given multiple levels of exercises of varying intensities covering all topics.
You will be free to do this at your own pace and assimilate all the concepts being taught.

Career Aptitude Test & Design Aptitude Test for Career Guidance
Career after 12 th standard is full of choices. In such condition, from among all the fields you are good at, you need to figure out what will suit you the most when it comes to building a career. We recommend students to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, liking, aptitude and interests before opting for a career.
Majority of the parents have a bent towards the traditional career options such as medical, finance,engineering etc. Today the field of designing is also having good placements and income just like any other field such as engineering, medical, financial planning and so on. Today, Product/Transportation Design, Fashion Design, Communication Design, Animation, Architecture etc. have emerged as some of the top careers of 21st century A fresh design graduate today can take home from Rs. 12 lacs per annum to 72 lakhs per annum.
Before opting for a design career one needs to check if he/ she has right aptitude to go in for a design career. But, the Psychometric tests available today do not check creative aptitude and as such fail to help in counseling student in taking up a design career.
We at SUN DESIGN GURU have created a Special ‘Design Aptitude Test’, to overcome this problem. Our design team has designed two different tests:
15 minutes Design Aptitude test: This test that will help us know the creative potential of the student and will give a precise report that whether he/she can take up designing as a career option.
90 minutes Career Aptitude test: This test will help the student to decide which design field will be best for him/ her from among the 40 different design career options such as Fashion,product, transportation, communication, animation and many more.
The aptitude test can be taken by class IX, X, XI and XII students as well as graduating students looking to pursue a post-graduation in design. Test can be taken at any of our centres with prior appointment.
