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:-**

Candidates may come from the following backgrounds:

(a) 10+2 or equivalent passed/appearing;

(b) 10+3 Diploma (any stream) passed/appearing recognized by Central/State Govts;

(c) International Baccalaureate Diploma passed/appearing, after 10 years of Schooling.

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.

Only candidates who have the following credentials shall be eligible for admission to B.Arch. Course.

i. Qualified a recognized aptitude test in Architecture (NATA or equivalent) in 2019

ii. Have gone through any of the following curriculum with marks as prescribed below:

(a) 10+2 or equivalent examination of Central/State Govts. with 50% aggregate marks and with Mathematics as a compulsory subject of examination; OR

(b) 10+3 Diploma (any stream) recognized by Central/State Govts. with 50% aggregate marks with Mathematics as a compulsory subject of examination; OR

(c) International Baccalaureate Diploma passed/appearing, after 10 years of Schooling with 50% marks in aggregate and with Mathematics as compulsory subject of examination.

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.

Are you Interested in NATA.
