What is NATA?

The National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) is the Entrance Exam for B.Arch Studies. It measures the aptitude of the applicant for specific field of study, i.e. Architecture. The test measures drawing and observation skills, sense of proportion, aesthetic sensitivity and critical thinking ability.

The purpose of conducting NATA is to provide a single scheme of examination for holding aptitude test and to facilitate prospective students all over the country to apply for admissions in architecture seats in institutions spread across the country.

Giving NATA is compulsory for taking admission in any of the Architectural colleges in India.

NATA scores are used by admissions authorities of different Government, Govt.

Who Conducts NATA?

The Council of Architecture (COA) conducts NATA. The Council of Architecture (COA), set up under the Architects Act, 1972, is entrusted with the responsibility of regulating Architectural Education and Profession in the country.

All the Institutions offering Architectural courses would have to seek approval from the Council of Architecture for imparting B.Arch Course so that the students passing out of these institutions do not face difficulty in getting registration as an Architect and practicing the profession.

Whether the AICTE approved Institutions can offer Architecture Course?

No. AICTE was established with a view to the proper planning and co-ordinated development of the technical education system.

It is Mandatory for all the Institutions to get approved by COA for imparting B.Arch Course. All the Institutions are also advised to admit students strictly as per the eligibility criteria and other admission norms prescribed by the COA.

In our Career Guidance Programme we clearly list out the COA approved colleges and their intakes to the students that enables them in choosing the best colleges during the Annauniversity Counselling.
