Words From The Heart…


Long-term NIFT coaching

“Every day was a new day with something exciting coming up next and we like 3 year olds eagerly waited for it. Mad School was something I waited for every weekend. It was a perfect place for a child in a teenage body like me and the fact that we were never asked to stop being a child unlike any other school. I've got to know so much about the creative side that I had in me and that's what this place does to you. It helps you to explore yourself more and more every day! I was a complete extrovert when I joined (I still am) but I loved the fact that this place does so much for the introverts out there and helped so many people to speak up.”

Why is coaching important for the NIFT exam?

Here’s why!

There certainly are students who clear the exam without coaching classes. But why do we say that coaching classes are important? Here are some of the reasons why students need coaching for the NIFT entrance exam.

Incomplete preparation before the NIFT Exam:

Many students begin studying for the NIFT exam 3–6 months before the exam dates are announced. Typically, students start to panic and do not follow a systematic flow while preparing. This is one of the reasons why the MAD School Bangalore coaching institute offers a 3 and 6-month coaching programme in both online and offline modes to help you prepare for the NIFT entrance exam.

Getting started with the preparation:

Most students have no idea where to start and yet proceed with their preparation for NIFT exams. Our MAD School NIFT coaching class faculties prepare and implement effective strategies personalised to your needs to get you started with the NIFT coaching.

Learning approach:

The learning approach followed for the NIFT entrance exam is different when compared to other all-India entrance examinations. During the NIFT entrance exam, you are tested for the following skills:

  • Aptitude
  • Sketching
  • Model making

Specialised coaching is required for each of these skill sets, which is one of the reasons why coaching classes for the NIFT exam are a requirement.

Balance!: Maintain a healthy balance between regular class and test preparations.

Most of the students start preparing for the exams after they complete their 10th board. Maintaining a balance between normal school sessions and entrance exam preparations becomes difficult.

This is why coaching classes and institutes help guide you and test your skills with NIFT practice mock tests and section-wise tests.
