DESIGN QUOTIENT 2014

Gavin Britto, Bangalore

''I received my NATA score and i got a 128 and i can say that with all sincerity that i would not have been able to do it without the help that Umesh Sir and Shaun Sir gave me.Thanks a lot!!!!! The image banks, question banks and mock test were very useful to me and really gave me the confidence to tackle the difficult questions in the aptitude test. The feedback i got from Umesh Sir and guidance from Shaun Sir really motivated me and i saw a tremendous improvement in my sketching. Umesh Sir told me things that i would have otherwise overlooked like rendering, design principles and colouring techniques.
Also, through this course my passion for sketching and architecture increased.I can truly say that even through online correspondence, a good score is possible...and is just as useful if not more, than a regular course...but what dqlabs has that distinguishes it from other coaching classes is the dedication to the students and the will to genuinely help architecture aspirants to do well....I have no complaints and i really really enjoyed the course.I AM VERY VERY GRATEFUL FOR ALL THE HELP!! THANKS AGAIN DQLABS!!! '' - Gavin Britto, Bangalore
