NATA 2017

National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) is being conducted by COA since 2006. It is implied that a separate aptitude test in Architecture should be conducted and such test should not be combined with the tests for admissions to Engineering, Pharmacy, Medicine and other disciplines.

The test makes an assessment of drawing and observation skills, sense of proportion, aesthetic sensitivity, Mathematics and critical thinking ability that have been acquired over a long period of time and are related to the specific field of study.

In order to further strengthen the conduct of the test and to attract more number of bright aspirants into studying Architecture, COA has decided to conduct NATA-2017 for admission to B.Arch. in the academic session 2017-18, as a one-day paper based examination all over the country.
