It aims to simplify the admission process for the 5 year B.Arch degree course at all recognized institutions across india, by conducting a Common Aptitude Test in Architecture. Launched in 2006, Nata was established to address the challenges faced by aspiring architecture students. It provides a single window system for students to showcase their aptitude, eliminating the need for multiple entrance exams & extensive travel expenses. Conducted annually since its inception, Nata adheres to the Council of Architecture (Minimum Standards of Architectural Education) Regulations 1983, published in the Gazette of India. These regulations mandate that candidate’s must pass either Nata (conducted by CoA) or JEE (conducted by NTA) for admission to B.Arch degree course.
