Eligibility

National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) is a national level undergraduate exam which is conducted by Council of Architecture (COA) for admission to 5-year B.Arch programme.

Through NATA 2020, candidates can get admission into B.Arch programme offered by Government, Government-aided, Private Unaided, University Departments and Deemed Universities of the country. Previously NATA was conducted once every year, but from 2019, the exam will be conducted twice a year - first on April and the second on July.

The admit card of NATA 2020 for the two attempts will be released separately. Candidates can appear in one or both the attempts of NATA 2020. If the candidate appears in both attempts, then best of the two scores will be considered.

The eligibility criteria of NATA 2020 has also been changed, with diploma candidates currently no longer eligible for admission. The question paper of the exam has two parts- Part A containing Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) was conducted online, while Part B (Drawing test) was held in offline mode.
