NATA Syllabus 2019 - Council of Architecture(COA) will inform candidates about the syllabus of NATA 2019 through the information brochure, which will be released before the exam. NATA 2019 syllabus will include the section-wise topics that will be covered in each part of the national-level exam. Questions will be asked only from inside the syllabus, except for rare cases. So, it is recommended that the NATA applicant goes through the syllabus carefully when preparing for the exam. Once the candidate checks out the syllabus, it will be that much easier to decide which topic to tackle first and which to leave for later. Also, along with NATA syllabus 2019, the exam pattern of is another thing that can help the candidate plan for the exam.
