Section-wise Analysis of NATA 2018

Mathematics Section:

Following are the topics from which questions were asked in Mathematics:

  • Matrices, Algebra, coordinate geometry, trigonometry, probability, statistics, calculus, equation of circle.
  • Questions were doable and were on predictable lines, there were no surprise element in the section.
  • Decent number of attempts would be close to 15 at an accuracy of 80% and one can easily score 25 marks in this section.

General Aptitude:

This section basically checks students logical bent of mind, decision making capability, ability to think on feet, analytical skills, metal fitness.

For checking all these skills there were questions from following areas:

  • Puzzle solving, syllogism, critical reasoning, inferential reasoning, statement assumption and conclusion, pictorial reasoning, mathematical reasoning, logical operations, ven diagram, set theory, sets, union , intersection, 3 dimensional figures, visualization , understanding of isometric figures.
  • The section was tricky and required good analytical skills for cracking the correct answer.
  • For a student is well-prepared, decent number of attempts would be close to 32 to 34 at an accuracy of 80% and a score of 50 is a decent score.

Drawing Section:

There were 2 questions of 40 marks each, someone who would have done good preparation and had a knack for drawing and understanding of proportionality, comfortable with free hand drawing and good with visualization of 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional figures can very easily score 50 plus marks in this section.

NATA Exam Analysis 2017

The National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) 2017 was held on April 16 by the Council of Architecture (CoA). A total of 40,000 candidates took the NATA 2017 in 33 cities and 70 centres across the country. If news reports are to be believed, several candidates who sat for the exam last year said that the NATA question paper was not in line with the pattern and scheme of marks laid by the CoA in the NATA 2017 brochure. 

According to the exam pattern given in the NATA 2017 brochure, Mathematics part had been alloted 40 marks out of the 200 marks paper with 20 questions of 2 marks each. However, the question paper had over 33 questions of Mathematics with a total of 66 marks allotted.

According to some test takers, the Physics part in the paper tested a few concepts which had no mention in the brochure. 

Another issue that students faced in the last year's exam was that the CoA decided not to allow drawing instruments inside the exam hall, which was not the case earlier and had no mention the 2017 brochure as well. According the exam conducting authority, the drawing instruments were not allowed beacuse students were expected to draw freehand.

How to Prepare for NATA 2019

National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) will be conducted in April 2019. The single most important question that monopolises aspirants' minds at this point in time is 'How to Prepare for NATA 2019?'. More than anything else, what works best while preparing for an entrance exam is to put all your efforts in the right direction. Collegedekho has, therefore, doled out a preparation strategy that you may consider if you're appearing for NATA.

Section-wise Preparation for NATA 2019

The entrance exam basically has two parts. Part A comprises of Maths and Aptitude with Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) that have to be answered online. While Part B is a Drawing-based test that you have to take on A4 size sheet. The best thing about NATA is that there is no negative marking. Therefore, you can attempt all the questions without any fear of marks deduction.

Part A

Aptitude: You should keep your general knowledge updated and you should have information on various topics such as Buildings in India and the World, speed distance and time, Important Architects of India and the World, Logical and Reasoning Ability questions, General Maths questions like area, volume Mirror Images, Building Materials and Terminology, Common Architectural Terminology, 2D and 3D objects and their plans and elevations, etc.

Maths: For Maths practice, it is advisable to go through CBSE books. Math portion is usually easy and you can score well in this section if you've studied your CBSE Math books properly.

Part B

Drawing: In this paper, you have to attempt two drawing questions in 90 minutes. You are judged on the following basis:

  • Drawing from day to day experiences;
  • Understanding of scale and balance;
  • Creating visual harmony using colours in given proportion;
  • Creating interesting 2-D composition using given shapes and forms;
  • Combining and composing given 3-D elements to form a building or structural form;
  • Sense of perspective drawing.

Quick Tips & Tricks to Prepare for NATA 2019:

Focus on the syllabus: One of the most important things while preparing for NATA 2019 is to know the NATA exam pattern and syllabus thoroughly. When you prepare a study schedule, be sure that you cover everything and pay attention to the key topics.

Be creative: As we talk about NATA, you should know that creativity is the key. If you want to get into a good college, you must practice drawing, because sketching is the key to this entrance test. Start with the simple ones and then move towards the harder one.

Keep a track of your time: If you don’t complete your exam because of poor time management, you will regret it later. Therefore, you should find out different ways to manage your time well on the day of the exam. One of the best ways to do the same is to take mock tests on a regular basis as practicing will enhance your test-taking speed.

Practice with mock tests: When you practice with the sample papers, you get an idea of the exam pattern, time management and also the type of questions that would come in the examination. If you want to be more confident about taking the exam, then you must take mock tests as they can give you an insight into your understanding of the basic concepts.

Previous year exam papers: Do not forget to go through the previous year exam papers as they give you an idea of what all to expect in the exam, that too with speed. Speed is also very important otherwise you will lose both-time and marks.

Focus on the online test: Other than drawing or sketching, one should also be prepared for taking the online test, which includes aptitude and maths. One must also prepare for it as it is equally important.
