About NATA 2019

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 2019, 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 the current session the exam would be conducted twice a year - first around mid-April and next in 1st week of July. Candidates will be able to take one or both the attempts of NATA 2019. If the candidate appears in both attempts, then best of the two scores will be considered. The eligibility criteria of NATA 2019 has also been changed, with diploma candidates currently no longer eligible for admission. That is not all as there are plans to make changes to the exam pattern and counselling process as well. The question paper of the exam has two parts- Part A containing Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) will be conducted online, while Part B (Drawing test) will be held in offline mode.

Until last academic session there was no common counselling for NATA 2019. COA only conducted the entrance exam. The universities/colleges and states offering B.Arch programmes conducted their own separate counselling based on scores obtained in NATA 2019. Once the result is announced by the authorities, the institutes conduct their separate counselling. However, starting from this academic session there are plans to conduct national-level centralized counselling for NATA. This is to ensure candidates don't have to travel from one college to another, which can be very taxiing and time consuming. Also, common counselling for NATA 2019 will also ensure that seats don't go vacant.

Candidates however still to meet the eligibility criteria of the university/college to which they are applying. There are more than 400 institutes that accept NATA scores. Based on the NATA scores and choices opted, allotment of seats will be made.
