(4 out of 5 based on 384 Ratings)

National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) is conducted by the Council of Architecture (COA) for admission to first year of 5 year B.Arch Degree course at all recognized institutions all over the country. The test measures drawing and observation skills, sense of proportion, aesthetic sensitivity and critical thinking ability. This is a complete and comprehensive assesement of candidates for undergraduate education in architecture. Admission to all architecture colleges (including government, government-aided, private unaided, university department, deemed universities) in India is done on the basis of NATA score. 
 
NATA 2019 Eligibility:-
 
Passed 10+2 scheme of examination with 50% marks in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics and also 50% marks in aggregate at 10+2 level examination; (those appearing the 10+2 exam with PCM subjects in the current year may also provisionally appear in the exam.
 
Admission to First year of B.Arch. course -
 
QUALIFYING IN NATA 2019 DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A RIGHT/ GUARANTEE IN FAVOUR OF THE CANDIDATE FOR HIS/HER ADMISSION TO ANY ARCHITECTURE COURSE UNLESS HE/SHE HAS FULFILLED ALL THE PRESCRIBED REQUIREMENTS AS SPECIFIED BY RESPECTIVE COUNSELLING AND ADMISSION AUTHORITIES.

Paper Pattern

NATA 2019 Pattern:-
 
Part A (MCQ Online)
 
Subject - Marks 
 
Mathematics (20 Questions carrying 2 marks each) - 40 marks
 
General Aptitude (40 Questions carrying 2 marks each)- 80 marks
 
Part B (Paper and Pencil) -
 
Drawing (2 Questions carrying 40 marks each) - 80 marks
 
Total Marks - 200
 
Test on Mathematics & General Aptitude -
 
Out of four options, only one option is correct and correct response will yield 2 (two) marks. There is no negative marking.
 
Drawing Test -
 
Candidate has to attempt two questions within 120 minutes. The drawing aptitude is judged on the following aspects -
 
Ability to sketch a given object proportionately and rendering the same in visually appealing manner;
 
Visualising 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 composition using given shapes and forms;
 
Creating visual harmony using colours in given composition;
 
Understanding of scale and proportions;
 
Drawing from memory through pencil sketch on themes from day to day experiences.
 
The Answer to each question in the 'drawing' paper will be examined by more than one examiner independently and the marks will be averaged. The primary emphasis in scoring the drawing section will be on the candidate's drawing, imagination and observation skills. The candidate's sense of proportion and perspective will also be evaluated together with sense for colour and composition. 

 

NATA Preparation

NATA 2019 Preparation:-
 
There are no shortcuts to success. One has to strive a lot in order to achieve success in NATA exam. Aspirants who will be appearing for NATA must realize that it is high time they start preparing for the exam. Joining a good coaching class will surely get you a good result but, if you are not interested in it, then you can refer to some books of architecture and those specially designed for architectural entrance like the ones illustrated below:
 
• Architecture Entrance Book by P. K. Mishra
• NATA Examination ( Verbal / Non- Verbal / Reasoning ) by R.S. Agarwal
• NATA Entrance Examination by Arihant Book
 
Besides this, make a proper list that distinguishes famous national buildings and international buildings. The reason behind this; there is a probability that you  might asked to spot the structures. You should also solve previous year’s NATA papers to have fair idea about the types of questions asked in the exam.
