As per the UCEED Exam Pattern, Part B of the UCEED exam consists of only one question for 60 marks. The time duration of Part B is 30 minutes. The question paper aims to test your drawing skills which will require subjective evaluation. Drawing Syllabus: You should have the ability to draw products, people, or scenes in proportion with good line quality, composition, proportion, perspective, and shading.

  1. Cover all the topics by preparing notes. Whatever you study, visualize and write down every concept that you are studying. 
  2. Your preparations are ineffective if you don't solve previous year's questions papers. You must have an idea of the type of questions and their difficulty level so to avoid last-minute surprises please make sure you solve as many questions papers as you can.
  3. Solve as many mock tests as possible during your preparation plan. Make sure you practice daily which can be possible when you prepare a timetable and distribute your subjects thoroughly. Practise is important because just drawing well isn't sufficient but drawing fast is also extremely important. Speed matters. 
  4. Once you study the concepts and cover the syllabus, attempt 5 UCEED Previous Year Papers on a regular basis for PART A. Practise pencil sketching and drawing for 30-45. The idea is most important not your sketching skills. 
  5. Ask for feedback on your drawing to better yourself. Complete 1 theory topic daily and make notes.
