Questions related to NATA
how to get into colleges to do Barch without Nata and JEE
There are no colleges that admit students into B. Arch programs without taking into account their NATA or JEE Mains scores. IITs, NITs, and GFTIs specifically consider NATA and JEE Mains (Paper 2) scores. Nevertheless, an alternative option could be to pursue admission through management seats, as these seats are not allocated based on examination scores.
I hope this answers your question.
am i eligible for NATA and JEE P2 with commerce stream and applied maths as my main subject??
The eligibility criteria of jee paper 2 are as follows -
- Candidates should pass from any recognised board or University in their class 12th
- Candidates should opt for physics chemistry and mathematics as mandatory subjects.
- Candidates should secure a minimum of 75 percentage in their class 12th.
So you are not eligible being from commerce stream.
I passed my 12th with commerce stream and with mathematics. am I eligible for nata2024. and what subjects should I select while filling the regisregistration form of nata?
Candidates must have completed either the 10+2 examination with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics or the 10+3 diploma with Mathematics as a subject from an approved board to be able to apply for NATA. Candidates may also submit a provisional application if they will be taking the 10+2 exam with Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics as subjects of study or the 10+3 Diploma with Mathematics.
You are ineligible to apply for NATA if you have completed or will complete your 10+2 in the commerce stream. Before applying for NATA, you must complete your 10+2 in Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry or your 3-year diploma from a recognized board with Mathematics as one of the topics.
Hope this information helps you
Can I get Jamia Millia Islamia at 130 as NATA score??? Jamia is accepting NATA for the first time. Im from Delhi (OBC MUSLIM)
Jia millia islamia offers 10% quota to OBC muslims. Because it's for the first time they are accepting NATA exam we can't predict you a seat. But you got a good score of 130 out of 200.
