Hi Simran,


If you meant you scored 50 for DAT prelims you might have a
chance to get into the next round. It can’t be exactly said as it depends on
level of difficulty, the number of candidates for a seat, past years cut off

If you meant, if you score 50 for your mains what would be rank
then, for General candidate the cut off is 50 percentiles, OBC
NCL is 45
percentiles, SC/ST/PwD is 40 percentiles. The number of candidates being
shortlisted from prelims will not be less than three times the number of seats
available for a particular category in that field or discipline.

**The most common and understood definition of a percentile is a
number, at which certain percentage of scores fall below that number. You might
have scored 50 on 100. But that number holds true meaning when you know in
which percentile you fall into. If you know that your score is in the 90th
percentile, that means you scored better than 90% of people who took the test.

You could rank somewhere near 1200 to 1500, approximately.


The number of seats reserved for general candidates is 50, OBC-NCL
27, SC 15 and ST is 8

Marking and tie breaker criteria:


CAndidates are scored according to their performance if two
candidates hav ethe same marks, then the candidate with higher marks in part B
is given rank, if the tie remains unresolved then the part A marks isconsidered
, if the tie still remains then the candidates are assigned the same rank.

The DAT main merit list will be released on may 1 after the mains
stage. The list will be calculated based upon the sum total of the weighted
scores obtained by the candidate at each stage of the admission process. The
tie breaker will be processed accordingly,

  • Candidates with higher marks in DAT Main will get the higher rank.
  • Candidate who has secured higher marks in Stage 1 Design Aptitude
    Test Part B will be awarded the higher rank.
  • The higher rank will be assigned to those candidates who has
    obtained higher marks in Stage 1 Design Aptitude Test Part A in case of a
    unresolved tie still exists.
  • Finally, higher rank will be assigned to the candidate who has
    secured higher marks in the DAT Mains exam question with maximum marks. 


The weightage given to DAT prelims is 30 % and Finals is 70% for
calculating the merit list. It is comparatively easy to get prelims. There are
cases when a general candidate with 55-57 marks qualified for Finals. The going
starts to feel a bit tougher with studio test and personal interview.


NID scores are accepted by all the NID's like Ahmedabad,
Bengaluru, Chennai, etc. If in case you don’t get into them you can opt for
private colleges like Pearl with a fee of around INR 21 lakhs, IILM Gurgaon, DJ
Academy of Design Coimbatore with a fee of around 10 lakhs, WLCI School of
fashion with a fee of around INR 9 lakhs.

All the best! Hope this answers your doubt.
