About NATA 2022

The Council of Architecture conducts the National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA), a national-level entrance exam, for the purpose of granting admission to the deserving candidates into the 5-year B.Arch degree course offered by various renowned Institutions across the country twice every year.

NATA 2021 Question PaperB.Arch Admission Process 2022

Under the CoA guidelines of 1983, a decision was taken to conduct a separate national-level entrance test for Architecture which will be completely independent of the admission entrance tests conducted for Medicine, Engineering, Pharmacy, and other disciplines. 

The decision of conducting NATA, a separate national-level architecture entrance test, came into effect in the year 2005 when the Supreme Court of India delivered its final verdict regarding the same.  Through NATA, the aspirants can only apply for the vacant Architecture seats in the top Architecture colleges in India but the actual admission will be granted to the eligible candidates by the respective colleges and their designated authorities. In order to apply for NATA, the applicants must also fulfil the minimum eligibility criteria for admission into the 5-year Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch) programme prescribed by the Council of Architecture and the same will be verified by the NATA officials before they issue the NATA admit cards. NATA is conducted with an aim to assess the aptitude of the applicants to study Architecture where various skills of the applicants, such as observation & drawing skills, aesthetic sensitivity, critical thinking ability and sense of proportion will also be measured.
