NID DAT 2022: Last-minute preparation tips

Plan your exam-taking strategy

First answer simple questions like logo designing, t-shirt designing and then move on to more complex questions. Spend an average of 45 seconds answering each question. Stop guessing the answer as there is a negative score in the General Ability Test (GAT). Students should keep in mind that there is a specific deadline to complete the paper.


Students must first revise all the key topics asked in the NID DAT exam in previous years. Since revision is important, candidates should try to revise all topics before the exam.

Prepare flashcards

Candidates can make flashcards for important concepts or topics and keep them handy. Using these flashcards, students can revise important concepts anytime.

Stay calm

Generally, the day before the exam will be restless, however, during this time, it is necessary to remain calm and motivated. Keep in mind that a positive attitude helps in getting a good score in NID DAT 2022.

Do not cover a new topic

Students should avoid covering new topics. It is better not to take stress by covering the new NID DAT 2022 syllabus.

Eat light and sleep well

The brain needs proper rest to function well in the exam. To avoid unwanted health problems such as diarrhea or acidity, eat a light, homemade meal one day before the exam, rather than junk food. Stay mentally and physically healthy for the NID DAT 2022 entrance exam.
