NATA Entrance Exam 2024

Understanding the ins and outs…

NATA stands for National Aptitude Test in Architecture. It is a competitive exam conducted all across India for admissions to undergraduate architecture programs. This national-level exam is conducted by the Council of Architecture (COA).

NATA exam is conducted to evaluate the candidate's

  • Architectural aptitude
  • Drawing
  • Observation skills
  • Critical thinking
  • Aesthetic sensitivity

NATA scores are accepted by various architecture colleges across India as a fundamental criterion for admission to their B.Arch. programs.

There are other exams such as JEE2, CEPT, and many more that are similar to NATA that are accepted by particular colleges in India.

NATA Exam Eligibility 2024:

There is no age limit when it comes to attempting the NATA exam.

NATA Exam Pattern 2024:

The new NATA exam pattern focuses more on the aptitude section and the drawing section was removed from the exam. These changes were made to make the exam more aligned with the present curriculum and learning outcomes of the B.Arch program. Another objective of these changes was to make the test more accessible to students from various disciplines, whether science or commerce.
