PhD Admission test questions

May 7, 2009

Before I forget, let me jot it down quickly so that it’s useful for future aspirants.

The paper has 4 sections: General Aptitude, Math, Programming and CS.
You can attempt any 3 sections. Each section has 5 questions.

ps: Will probably update the post with answers some other time.


IDC questions

May 4, 2009

Election told me a couple of questions from IDC exam–I think they are interesting:

1. Draw a half-page 10×10 grid as accurately as you can using free hand.
2. Find 10 uses for a used plastic water bottle and illustrate them with drawing.
3. They was a picture of a shadow of letter ‘i’ formed on a staircase and were asked to draw the shadow of letter ‘h’.

I’ve heard the course work is rather hectic in IDC, but I’m sure folks there are having fun with all this design stuff. Apparently, one of its alumini was on TED recently.
