Your first step towards becoming eligible for B. Arch & Planning degree. National Aptitude Test In Architecture (NATA), All India Examination conducted on a single day by COA (Council of Architecture) since 2006, as per Regulations 1983, published in Gazette of India. The objective of the exam is to provide a single window clearance towards facilitation of Institutions, students and public at large for admission towards 5 year B.Arch courses at all recognized institutions over the country. There are about 450 institutions presently imparting Architectural educations in India towards recognized qualifications. However the actual admissions are carried out by the concerned competent authorities of the respective Institutions/ states based on NATA .The objective of conducting an exam of All India stature it to measure the Aptitude & competence of candidate who undertakes such studies.

Assessment in NATA includes the below mentioned topics

  • Drawing & Observation skills
  • A sense of Proportion
  • Aesthetic sensitivity
  • Mathematics
  • Critical Thinking ability

The question paper consists of 2 parts. Part –A, comprising of Multiple choice Questions (Online) & Part B consisting of Drawing (Off line) which we shall discuss in detail in the coming sections.

Am I Eligible ?

This has been one of the profound questions of the century post a Philosophical question that raised debates and concerns in early 18th century on how many “Angels can be balanced in a single point of needle”?. Why such theatrical verbal debauchery observed stems from the fact of confusion prevalent in the NATA corridors while taking into account of Eligibility towards NATA Exam. The confusion prevails on the respects of student to have Maths, Physics & Chemistry as primary subjects or should he only have Maths as a subject towards eligibility compensation.  For the moment I shall stick to information Published through the official NATA Brochure

The below Eligibility is mentioned is as exacted in the brochure:-

  • 10+2 (Passed or Appearing in the current year )or equivalent examination of Central state Govts with 50% aggregate marks and with Mathematics as a compulsory subject of Examination
  • 10+3 Diploma ( any stream) recognized by Central/ State Govt.with 50% aggregate marks with Mathematics as a compulsory subject of Examination
  • International Baccalaureate Diploma passed / appearing, after 10 years of schooling with 50% marks in aggregate and with Mathematics as compulsory subject of Examination.

What is my Competition in NATA Exam?

This question should be relevant to you as you are the one writing the exam. However to give a sense of what you are being pitted with, 2017-2018 had 45000 students had registered for the Exam of which 40,000 (approx. ) appeared. Results were not bad with more than 35 250 (approx.) clearing the exam successfully. 2018 witnessed a variation in gender with more number of Female candidates appearing towards cracking this exam. One of the most popular Exams after engineering and medical, the growth appears to be at a % of 18-20 year on year. A reason cited for the same can be towards the inherent popularity /nobility and Respect of the discipline, informed opinion among the general public & Ample opportunities in the Public & Private sector and the niche it reserves for candidates with Creative skills.

Let’s Discuss Question Paper and Pass Percentage

The NATA question paper is out of 200 marks in total with 3 hours’ time frame to complete. The question Paper consists of 2 Parts. Part A- with Mathematics & General Aptitude( Multiple Choice Questions) and Part –B with Drawing.

Part A consists of a total of 60 Questions with 20 questions in Mathematics of 2 marks each and 40 questions of 2 mark each in Aptitude. Mind you, there are students who have scored full marks in these sections in 2017-2018 examinations. A relief for NATA exam is that there is no Negative Marking, and candidate does have the opportunity to score full marks without any apprehensions on score.

Part –B, Drawing consists of 2 questions of 40 marks. One important factor to be considered is the logic that applies to this part where unlike Part A, there are a few things you need to look at towards scoring maximum marks. It is to be reminded that no one till date have scored a full marks in the drawing part. Some of the tips that I can impart here towards improving your chances of scoring marks would to place more practice towards Memory drawing, compositions, Lighting and shading, proportions, colour ( applications & theory), Shading, lighting, texturing etc. . Like the saying goes, droplets of water makes an ocean , the saying is apt here with each and every aspect scrutinized emphatically, towards better scoring opportunity. Part A- will be Computer based & Part B- shall be paper based.

It has to be noted that both the sections has to be cleared with cut off percentage as prescribed by the NATA board for you to be deemed as PASS.

Below is the pass percentage in different section

  • A minimum of 25% must be secured in MCQ Portion ( 30 marks out of 120 )
  • A Minimum of 25% must be secured in Drawing portion ( 20 marks out of 80)

Over all qualifying marks in NATA would be based on post exam statistics and at the discretion of the council.

Let’s cover the topics for the Exam:-

Subject such as Mathematics constitutes 12 STD levels of portions. But the trick here is to understand the pattern of questions, Tips and Tricks to quickly solve problems, given the fact that no form of electronic gadgets are allowed inside the Exam hall. So the only reliable option is your mental capability and capacity towards problem computation and solutions.

  • Mathematics : Algebra, Logarithms, Matrices, Trigonometry, Coordinate Geometry, 3-Diamensional Coordinate Geometry, Theory of Calculus, Application of Calculus, Permutation & Combination, Statistics & Probability
  • General Aptitude: Mathematical Reasoning, Sets & Relations, Interpretation of pictorial compositions, Visualizing 3 dimensional objects from 2 dimensional drawing, Visualizing sides of 3D objects, Analytical reasoning, Mental Ability ( visual Numerical & Verbal ) , General awareness : National/ International architects & their creation
