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: The last date for NATA would be 31st August, 2014. 
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 Central/State Govt. / University to conduct 
and monitor admissions in that area. This may vary from the Directorate of Technical Education 
itself, a major University, Institution(s), 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: No training/coaching is allowed in Test Centres and no other fees payable for this exam. If any 
centre indulges is such practice or insists on additional fees or participation in training program, 
please report such incident to Council of Architecture or NIASA. 
8. Do I have to appear for NATA at the college where I aspire to take admission? 
Ans: No. You may appear for NATA at any Test center convenient to you. Based on the score you may 
seek admission to any college where you are eligible to seek admission.
