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 www.nata.in
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 over all score is (80+110)/2 = 95 marks. If in the second attempt he managed to score only 50/200 then his over all 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.
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.
