Default Re: NATA Exam Application Form

The NATA Information Brochure (including NATA Registration Form) is available for at the designated branches of “Axis Bank” from 15 March 2012. The filled in Registration Form must be submitted to test center where you wish to take the test.

Procedure of registration and other information about the application form is in the Brochure. Here I am uploading the Brochure. You can download it from here:

(NATA Brochure 2012)

Here is the Brochure:

1. INTRODUCTION
National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) is being conducted by the Council of
Architecture, being the competent & final authority for the purpose of fixing norms and
standards for architectural institutions and having the necessary expertise to hold a Common
Aptitude Test in Architecture, at national level to provide a single window system for
appearing in aptitude test and to facilitate institutions, students and public at large for
admission to First year of 5 year B.Arch Degree Course at all recognized Institutions all
over country.
NATA is being conducted in terms of the provisions laid down under CoA (Minimum
Standards of Architectural Education) Regulations, 1983 [published in the Gazette of India
in Part III, Section 4 on 26th March, 1983 and 27th August, 1983] and the Revised Guidelines
on Admission to 1st year of Five-year Degree Course in Architecture approved by the
Council at its 45th Meeting held on 28.04.2006. These Guidelines stipulate 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 Hon'ble Supreme Court of India, in the matter of P.A.Inamdar & Ors. Vs. State of
Maharashtra & Ors. [Appeal(Civil) 5041 of 2005], in its Judgement dated 12.08.2005 also
emphasised on the need for a common entrance test followed by a single window system.
The purpose of conducting NATA is to provide a single scheme of examination for holding
aptitude test to facilitate prospective students all over the country to apply for admissions
in architecture seats in institutions spread over the country while the actual admissions
shall be carried out only by the concerned designated authorities of the respective states/
institutions based on NATA. The NATA also ensures that the eligibility criteria for admission
to five-year Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) degree course, as prescribed by CoA and
duly approved by the Central Government, are strictly adhered to and followed all over the
country.
1.1 What Is NATA?
The National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) measures the aptitude of the
applicant for specific field of study, i.e. Architecture. The test measures drawing
and observation skills, sense of proportion, aesthetic sensitivity and critical
thinking ability, that have been acquired over a long period of time, and that are
related to specific field of study, i.e. Architecture.
2. ELIGIBILITY
Any person having passed SSC (Std X) or equivalent examination can appear for NATA,
however, candidates having 50% marks in 10+2 or equivalent examination with mathematics
as one of the subject, only are eligible for admission to B.Arch.Course.

2.1 Who should take NATA and Why?
Prospective applicants desirous of taking admission to First year of undergraduate
course in Architecture (Bachelor of Architecture) in India take NATA. NATA scores are
used by admissions authorities of different Government, Govt. Aided & unaided
schools / colleges of Architecture, to provide common measure for comparing the
qualifications of applicants, for admission in addition to their scholastic performance
in 10+2 or equivalent examination.
3. WHERE TO APPEAR FOR NATA?
NATA is offered over major part of admission season at designated Test Centers located
at colleges / schools of architecture in India. Updated list of Test centers is available at the


4. TEST FEES
The NATA Information Brochure (including Registration Form) is available for sale at a
price of Rs.1000.00, which includes Nata Test fees, at the designated branches of "Axis
Bank" given in the brochure.
5. CANCELLATION, RESCHEDULING THE TEST APPOINTMENT & REFUND
Appointment once scheduled cannot be cancelled or rescheduled. There will be no refund
of NATA test fees under any conditions.
6. REGISTER FOR THE NATA
The Registration Form duly filled in should be submitted to test center where you wish to
take the test and seek registration and appointment.
Appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Register well in
advance to get the candidate's preferred test date.
7. REGISTRATION PROCESS
Approach the Test Center located at college / school of Architecture at a location convenient
to the candidate with the filled up form and the documents listed below.
7.1 Documents required for Registration
l Std. X or equivalent exam marklist - attested copy
l One recent passport size colour photograph, to be pasted on the registration form.
l Any valid document of identification bearing photograph and signature of the
candidate - attested copy
l Valid email address. (In case you do not possess one, we suggest you to open
email account on one of the free service providers such as yahoo, hotmail, rediffmail,
gmail, etc. PLEASE DO NOT REVEAL YOUR PASSWORD TO ANY ONE.)

7.2 The Appointment voucher
l On successful registration and granting of appointment, an Appointment voucher is
issued to the candidate by the Test center.
l The candidate at the time of Registration shall ensure that correct data is entered
by the Test Centre employee. The candidate should check it carefully to make sure
the Name, identifying information and address are correct and are spelt correctly
before going to step 2 of registration and also on receiving the appointment voucher.
l Once registered, no corrections are possible. Candidate will have to purchase
fresh registration form and get registered again.
l The Appointment voucher also shows Candidate ID, Appointment Number and
Exam Key. The Appointment Number and Exam Key are used by the candidate
to log in at the time of the test.
l There are two counterfoils on the appointment voucher. The applicant has to sign
the counterfoil in presence of the Hall supervisor at the time of the test, and hand
over the same to him / her.
l Please do not sign the counterfoil in advance. Sign the counterfoil only when
the hall supervisor asks you to. If the hall supervisor finds the counterfoil
already signed he may disallow the candidate to proceed with the test and
his candidature will get forfeited.
l The candidate will be required to sign the Test Center attendance register before
and after the test session and any time the candidate leaves or enter the testing
room.
● Insist on appointment voucher to be handed over to you. In case any test centre
refuses issuing of appointment voucher or asks for any additional fees or puts in
conditions of any sort, please report to Council of Architecture or its academic unit
NIASA immediately on the email “support@nata.in”.
7.3 Important Things to Remember When Registering
l Register well in advance. During the peak admission season Test Centers fill up
quickly.
l Take the test as soon as possible to ensure that the candidate's score card /
Mark list will be ready in time to be submitted at the time of applying for
admission.
l When registering, be sure that the spelling of the candidate's name matches the name
printed on the identification document(s) the candidate will present at the Test Center.
If this information does not match, the candidate will not be permitted to appear in test
and his / her test fee will be forfeited. See Identification Requirements (11).
l Information regarding Test Center availability is subject to change. The most
current information regarding Test Centers and other registration information is
available on the NATA website




8. REPEATING NATA
NATA can be given as many number of times as desired by the candidate. For every
attempt, however, a new form will have to be purchased from the designated branches of
the Axis Bank. The mark list will show the average of marks scored by the candidate in his
last attempt and his previous valid score.
l Data on such Tests shows that repeaters on an average show a slight score gain.
However, this finding is tempered by the observation that repeaters are typically a
self-selected group who believe that repeating the test will increase their scores.
l Unless the scores seem unusually low compared to the other indicators of the
candidate's ability, taking a NATA again is not likely to result in a substantial score
increase. In fact, there is some chance that the candidate's scores may drop.
l Do not register for repeat attempt unless you receive score card for previous
attempt.
l Candidate, while seeking the repeat test appointment must inform the test center
of the previous attempts and present copy of previous Appointment voucher/ Score
card. If any candidate is found registering afresh despite earlier appearance
for NATA, he/ she will forfeit his/her candidature, his/her all previous scores
will be cancelled and he/she will be barred from appearing for NATA again.

9. NATA DATES
l Nata Test shall commence from 15th March, 2012 and can be given on any working
day till 31st August, 2012 at designated Test Centers. However, some test centers
may open late or stop conducting tests even before this date. Please check with
the center before you go for registration.

15. TEST CONTENT
The test is in two parts. A paper based drawing test for two hours and computer based
online aesthetic sensitivity test.
The test measures aptitude of the candidate through two sections - a paper based section
for drawing and computer based section for aesthetic sensitivity.

15.1 Drawing Test
This is a two hour paper where candidate has to attempt three questions.
The drawing aptitude is judged on the following aspects -
l Ability to sketch a given object proportionately and rendering the same in
visually appealing manner.
l Visualising and drawing the effects of light on the object and shadows cast on
surroundings.
l Sense of perspective drawing.
l Combining and composing given three dimensional elements to form a building
or structural form.
Information Brochure NATA 2012 Page 12/24
l Creating interesting two dimensional composition using given shapes and
forms.
l Creating visual harmony using colours in given composition.
l Understanding of scale and proportions.
l Drawing from memory through pencil sketch on themes from day to day
experiences.

15.2 Aesthetic Sensitivity Test
This is computer based test where candidate has to answer 40 multiple choice
questions.
The aesthetic sensitivity test measures perception, imagination and observation,
creativity and communication along with architectural awareness and comprises of -
l Visualising three dimensional objects from two dimensional drawings.
l Visualising different sides of three dimensional objects.
l Identifying commonly used materials and objects based on their textural
qualities.
l Analytical reasoning.
l Mental Ability.
l Imaginative comprehension and expression.
l Architectural awareness.

16. SCORING PROCESS
The Answer to each question in the 'drawing' paper will be examined by a panel of three
examiners independently and the marks are averaged. It may be further subject to
moderation.
During the computer based test, with adaptive testing, an examinee is administered a set
of questions with a difficulty level that is specifically designed to match the examinee's
ability level. The mathematical process for calculating a score in this situation incorporates
the statistical properties of the questions, the examinee's performance on the questions,
and the number of questions that are answered.

16.1 How the Sections of the Test Are Scored
Drawing Section
l The primary emphasis in scoring the drawing section is on the candidate's drawing,
imagination and observation skills. The candidate's sense of proportion & perspective
is also evaluated together with sense for colour and composition.

Aesthetic Sensitivity Section
l The candidate's score will depend on his / her performance on the questions given
and on the number of questions answered in the time allotted.
l This section is computer adaptive, meaning that the computer selects questions
based on the candidate's performance on preceding questions (When correct answer
is given, next question will be of higher difficulty level whereas, if wrong answer is
given next question is of lower difficulty level) and on the requirements of the test
design. Test design factors that influence which questions are presented to the
candidate include:
o The statistical characteristics (including difficulty level) of the questions already
answered
o The required variety of question types
o The appropriate coverage of content.
o The final score depends on average difficulty level of all questions and of those
questions answered correctly. E.g. person with correct answer for less number
of questions of higher difficulty level may score higher marks than someone
who answers more number of questions correctly but of lower difficulty level.
o Time allotted to answer the question is between 40 and 120 seconds depending
upon the question. The time remaining to answer the question is displayed on
the screen. The "per second" countdown begins 30 seconds before the allotted
time for that question ends. In case no answer is offered till the time ends, the
question is skipped and next question appears.
o There is no Negative marking in this test.
NO REVALUATION IS POSSIBLE FOR EITHER OF THE TESTS.
17. SCORE CARD / MARK LIST
The score cards will be available on NATA website in e-format. Usually, the score cards
will be posted on the website on the fourth working day after the test.
The candidate, after fourth day may check his score directly from website giving his / her
candidate ID. However, print out taken by the candidate of such score card will be only for
reference and information. Candidate, however, may use print out of this score card while
applying for the admission if the admission authority calls for the same. Original score
card will be retrieved and verified by the admission authority directly from NATA server.
Only the score card stored on NATA server is valid and no print/ hard copy will be
considered valid.
Information Brochure NATA 2012 Page 14/24
NOTE: Occasionally, delays in processing may occur. Some scores will not be available on
the dates specified. Please check again. Only if the score card is still not seen
after 7 days, we suggest the candidate to follow the process mentioned on
the website www.nata.in.
17.1 Cumulative Reporting (Score Retention)
NATA score reporting is cumulative. Current NATA policy states that the candidate's
scores are retained for the two years from the date of last test taken.

18. APPLYING TO INSTITUTIONS FOR ADMISSION
As per Council of Architecture regulations, a candidate applying to any school / college of
architecture in India should have 50% marks in 10+2 or equivalent examination with
mathematics as one of the subject and have achieved 40% score in NATA, i.e. at least 80/
200, for consideration of admission into first year of 5-year B.Arch. Degree Course.

19. COMPETENT AUTHORITY FOR ADMISSION
The admissions shall be carried out by the Competent Authority i.e. Government or
University, or such Authorities/Institutions Concerned (School/College of Architecture)/
Association or federation of Institutions (Schools/College of Architecture) as approved by
the Government/University, based on the marks obtained in NATA and the qualifying
examinations in the ratio of 50:50. The reservation policy for admission as applicable
from time to time by the Central/State Government shall be followed.
After receiving score card / Mark list and HSC / std XII results, the candidate may apply for
admission to any of the participating institutions as per the time schedule specified by the
appropriate admission authority, along with all the documents desired by it.
Council of Architecture and NIASA, does not guarantee any admissions and is not
involved with the admission procedure. Appearing at a particular center for the test
does not imply that the candidate could be given any priority for admission to that
institute.

20. FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)
1. By giving NATA, do I get automatic admission into any Architectural College in India?
Ans: No. NATA is just an Aptitude Test. On receiving the Score Card, the candidate will have
to contact various admission authorities with NATA Score Card and other details
(as prescribed by the respective Admission Authorities). Admission in India lies with
the State (usually under Directorate of Technical Education for that state). Usually around
summer, Admission Authorities will bring out admission notices in National & Regional
newspapers. The candidate may contact schools of architecture directly for information as
to when the admission process is scheduled to begin

2. What is the last date for giving NATA?
Ans: Technically, 31st August. NATA runs continuously till 31st August, usually on working days.
The dates on which NATA is available depends on the Test Centre. Candidates may request
Test Centres for the preferred dates. If the candidate is available for NATA only on a
particular date (or range of dates) that a particular Test Centre is not able to give, the
candidate may register at any other Test Centre throughout India that is able to administer
NATA on that date / time. TEST CENTRE LOCATION HAS NO BEARING ON CHOICE
OF ADMISSION AND APPEARING AT A PARTICULAR CENTER FOR THE TEST DOES
NOT IMPLY THAT THE CANDIDATE COULD BE GIVEN ANY PRIORITY FOR ADMISSION
TO THAT INSTITUTE. The logical last date for giving NATA for candidates seeking
admission this year itself would be 5 days before the last date for submitting application
for admission under a particular Admission Authority. This varies from authority to authority.

3. What is the meaning of Admission Authority?
Ans: Admission Authority is a body, authorised by the State Govt. / University to conduct and
monitor admissions in that area. This may vary from the Directorate of Technical Education
itself, a major University, a body created by an association of Architectural Schools in that
State (eg. MASA), or any other Admission Authority recognised by the state. The candidate
may be advised to check up in advance with Schools of Architecture where he / she is
applying for the details of the admission authority and other information on the exact
admission process.

4. How do I practice for NATA? Where can I take tuitions?
Ans: NATA is designed in such a manner that prior tutelage is not required. COA/NIASA is
aware that the candidates will have no or minimal knowledge of architecture. NATA
measures aptitude of the candidate in his / her aesthetic sensibilities (3D visualisation,
logical understanding, etc.) and drawing skills that are in-built in every candidate and
developed right from childhood to the present day. There will be certain questions on
architectural awareness wherein candidates may be required to identify building of national
or international importance. The candidate is expected to know about these structures
through General Knowledge. The candidate may also prefer to update his knowledge on
this by some reading, internet browsing or even by talking to architectural students, architects
and other knowledgeable persons. In all probability, this will not be required. There will be
a model NATA interface available on the NATA website to help candidates get acquainted
with the visual format of the test. There will be no model questions available as such. The
language medium of the test will be English. Minimal computer skills are required (pointing
and clicking Mouse buttons).
5. I am a foreign student / NRI. Can I take the test from my country of residence?
Ans: No. The candidate will have to register in India and give the test from any of the designated
Test centres of his / her choice in India. The qualification process for giving NATA stands
the same. Admission will be given by the respective admission authorities according to the
rules laid down by it for students of such category.
6. If I belong to a particular quota (SC/ST/NT/etc.), do I get score waiver for NATA during
admission?
Ans: No.
7. Are there any additional fees payable for training, etc?
Ans: There are no other fees payable. If any centre insists on additional fees or participation in
