NATA The National Aptitude Test in Architecture
  Conducted by Council of Architecture)
NATA is an  Exam For Admission to B. ARCH at UN AIDED / PRIVATE Colleges
WHAT IS NATA?  The National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) tests the aptitude of the applicant for study of Architecture. 10+2 or PUC students who want are desirous of taking admission to first year of undergraduate course in Architecture (Bachelor of Architecture) in India take NATA. NATA scores are used by admissions authorities of different Government, Govt aided & unaided Schools/Colleges of architecture. NATA is conducted by COA - Council of Architecture.
  Official site for NATA is

NATA can be given from mid march till end of July every year at designated test centers.  
NATA can be taken any number of times in a year. This means if a student gets less score he can retake the test to improve his score by re-registering for the NATA by paying fees again. However NOT the best score, but the average of the scores is taken into consideration. For example a student scores 80/200 marks in the first attempt and 110/200 marks in the second attempt his overall score is (80+110)/2 = 95 marks. If in the second attempt he managed to score only 50/200 then his overall score would get reduced to (80+50)/2 = 65. So it is always better to prepare well for the exam and get good scores in the first attempt itself. NATA scores are valid for 2 years.

ELIGIBILITY: Candidates having 50% marks in 10+2 or equivalent examination with mathematics as one of the subject, only are eligible for admission to B.Arch. Course.

NATA Syllabus:  The test is in two parts. A paper based drawing test for two hours and computer based online aesthetic sensitivity test for one hour. The test measures aptitude of the candidate through two sections – a paper based section for drawing and computer based section for aesthetic sensitivity.
Drawing Test : This is a two hour paper where candidate has to attempt 3 questions. The drawing aptitude is judged on the following aspects -

  • Ability to sketch a given object proportionately and rendering the same in visually appealing manner.
  • Visualizing and drawing the effects of light on the object and shadows cast on surroundings.
  • Sense of perspective drawing. Combining and composing given three dimensional elements to form a building or structural form.
  • Creating interesting two dimensional compositions using given shapes and forms.
  • Creating visual harmony using colors in given composition.
  • Understanding of scale and proportions.
  • Drawing from memory through pencil sketch on themes from day to day experiences.

Aesthetic Sensitivity Test : This is computer based test of one hour where candidate has to answer 40 multiple choice questions. The aesthetic sensitivity test measures perception, imagination and observation, creativity and communication along with architectural awareness and comprises of –

    • Visualizing three dimensional objects from two dimensional drawings.
    • Visualizing different sides of three dimensional objects.
    • Indentifying commonly used materials and objects based on their textural qualities.
    • Analytical reasoning. Mental Ability.
    • Imaginative comprehension and expression.
    • Architectural awareness.
JEE B.Arch Exams Entrance Preparation
  (Conducted By CBSE Board)
Every year, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) conducts nationwide competitive examinations called Joint Entrance Examination (JEE Main, earlier known as AIEEE) for admission to undergraduate engineering programmes at NITs, IITs, centrally funded technical institutions and other institutions funded by the state governments.
