CEED : UCEED : NID : NIFT

Design Exam Masterclass is a 4 stages fast-paced program to help you build skills to crack design exams with common sense and confidence Upcoming Cohort: 1st July 2022 

📚Accelerator Curriculum

The Accelerator program aims to help you become exam ready quickly and smartly. All the sessions are pre-recorded so that you take control of the speed of your preparation

We will meet one week prior and understand the procedure of the program, and details about how to use the Kaphal platform. Though the sessions are pre-recorded the program will run in a cohort. You'll learn a lot from your peers. This week you'll get to know each other. Also, this week would recommend you go through the self-preparation course before we start the accelerator program.

This is the stage where we get accustomed to the profession. We understand how the approach for design should be different from other streams. This is the stage where we “do not know that we don’t know”. Here we will figure out ‘Why design’.

The previous notions about design are reoriented and hence the stage ‘unlearn’. We work together to develop those skills discussed in the first stage. This is the stage of ‘guided practice’. We look at the PYQs and try solving them together, brainstorm on them and learn from mistakes.

Reading and learning is not the only part of preparation. The actual preparation starts in our heads. How prepared we are mentally to take up the challenge? This stage focuses on these techniques. We imbibe the process and skills.

The best way to test your preparation is to teach. You create assignments and tests for others. We all attempt them and you evaluate us. You understand the mindset of a student and learn how to deal with it.

We reflect on what we learned and try to find the answer to the fundamental question to excel in a competitive exam; ‘how to be different?’

The actual preparation required for the design entrance exam is over. From the 6th week onwards, revisit and practice the same topics again till the exam. If you have dedicated the earlier 5 weeks with commitment, it is time to slow down. We would meet again during 1:1 mentorship sessions clear your doubts.


To know more about the curriculum and our teaching method, talk to your coach in a 1:1 meeting. We would be happy to help!

Frequently Asked Questions

Got a question? We've got answers. If you have some other questions, contact us using email.

No! All the sessions are pre-recorded except for Office Hours with a mentor. The sessions are pre-recorded so that you prepare at your own pace. But, we know that preparing at our own pace is not motivating and rewarding. That's why we run this program in a cohort. And, for the same reason, we have office hours. 😊

Yes, you have access to all the recordings till the exam or 1st March 2023 (whichever is earlier)

Yes, you can enroll in a 1:1 trial session with a coach at Kaphal Studio to get answers to your doubts about the course and for general counseling on a career in design. Also, you can watch a demo session of the pre-recorded content to get a feel of what we are offering at Kaphal Studio. 🤩 Please note that we charge a minimal amount for these trial sessions which is deducted if you enroll in the program.

During the 6-week period, we expect you to devote 10-12 hours including watching videos and completing assignments.

To make it accessible for the majority of students in the country, we have introduced part-payment or payment in installments. Apart from that, you can use a credit card for no-cost EMI as well.

Yes. You can upgrade the plan anytime during the course. To upgrade you'll have to pay the difference at the time of upgrading.

We do not offer any refund, once the product has been purchased. You can enroll in as many trial sessions before enrolling in the program.

1:1 sessions are designed to help you work on your problems and doubts personally. 👨‍🏫 Each 1:1 session would be 30 minutes zoom meeting. In these sessions, you can ask the coach for review, feedback, discuss questions or discuss your preparation in general.

All the coaches at Kaphal Studio are professional mentors and are from premium design colleges. The coaches are trained in advance to help you achieve your goals. Your coach will be assigned to your cohort internally by Kaphal Team.

Before we start the intense preparation for 6 weeks. You meet and greet your peers in the cohort in week-0. We help you get accustomed to our platform where you'll be submitting your tests and assignments. In short, week-0 is fun! 😎

We do suggest some reading materials. But, we do not believe in study materials for design. Even though we have collected everything you need to know from the exam perspective under Design Prep Repository. You can find the link to the repository in the "Resources" tab in the footer.

You can drop us an email at learn@kaphalstudio.com or directly call our helpline number +919311560779 [between 11 AM to 6 PM].

After 6 weeks we enter the Phase II of the preparation. You dive into the self-preparation mode. The coach will meet you during the 1-on-1 session according to your plan.
