The National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) tests the aptitude of the applicant for the field of Architecture. This entrance exam tests the drawing and observation skills, sense of proportion, aesthetic sensitivity and critical thinking ability of an individual that has been acquired over a long period of time, and that which are related to the field of Architecture.

Eligibility Criteria:

**Qualification:**Candidate should pass 10+2 scheme of examination.**Required Percentage:**Candidate should have at least 50% aggregate marks in Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics and also at least 50% marks in aggregate of the 10+2 level examination or passed 10+3 Diploma Examination with Mathematics as compulsory subject with at least 50% marks in aggregate.**Appearing Candidates:**Such candidates appearing the 10+2 exam in the current year may also provisionally appear in the exam.

**Note: **No direct lateral admission is allowed at any other year/stage of B.Arch. course based on any qualification.
