National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) is being conducted by COA since 2006, in terms of the provisions of CoA (Minimum Standards of Architectural Education) Regulations, 1983, published in the Gazette of India. Further, the Council has prescribed the Council of Architecture (Minimum Standards of Architectural Education) Regulations, 2020, with the approval of the Central Government in terms of Sections 21 & 45 of the Architects Act, 1972. The Regulations were published in the Gazette of India on 11.08.2020 and came into force w.e.f. 01.11.2020. These Regulations prescribe that the candidate needs to qualify an Aptitude Test in Architecture conducted by the Council for admission to the Architecture degree course. The actual admissions shall be carried out only by the concerned competent authorities of the respective states/institutions based on valid NATA score. The NATA ensures that the eligibility criteria for admission to five-year Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) degree course, as prescribed by CoA and duly approved by the Central Government, are strictly adhered to and followed all over the country in Architectural Institutions.

NATA 2021 will be conducted as a comprehensive online aptitude test at the Council allotted centers in identified cities in the country.

Unlike any other entrance examination, NATA is an Aptitude test that assesses a candidate’s innate ability through a variety of testing formats and cannot be taught, learnt or induced. Therefore, attending coaching classes will not substantially improve the aptitude of a candidate. NATA measures the aptitude of the applicant for specific field of study, i.e. Architecture, through assessment of cognitive skills, visual perception and aesthetic sensitivity tests, logical reasoning and critical thinking ability, etc., besides the learning that the candidate has acquired over the past few years and is related to the specific field of study. With the objective of giving opportunities to a greater number of bright aspirants, Council will be conducting NATA- 2021 for admission to B.Arch. in the academic session 2021- 2022 twice this year. Candidates who miss out the first test due to some reason or other or wish to improve upon their NATA score can register for the second test. Both the first and second test will be conducted on different dates as computer-based examinations and a candidate shall be allowed to appear for NATA 2021 for a maximum of two times.

Schedule of Examination

Examination shall be conducted in one session on the date of the first test and on the second date of the test. Second session for examination may be considered in the event of any restrictions imposed by the Government on the number of candidates appearing in a single session due to social distancing norms owing to pandemic Covid-19. The session during which the candidate will take the test will be allotted by the Council and Centre allotment will be done on the basis of choice provided by the candidate in the application form for preferred city for taking examination. The candidates need to indicate their preference for city of examination at their respective login accounts at NATA portal www.nata.in
