Good News for Architecture Aspirants – National Aptitude Test in Architecture to be conducted twice a year!

Aspiring architecture students now have a reason to rejoice as the President of Council Of Architecture (COA), Vijay Garg, has recently announced that the National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) will now be conducted twice a year.

Earlier, the exam was conducted once a year in the month of April. The problem with conducting the entrance exam only once a year in April was that most students feared that the dates would clash with the 12 th standard Board Exams. Now, since the exam will be conducted first in mid-April and then again on the first week of July 2019, aspirants have a better shot at qualifying!

Another important announcement that was made by the COA suggests a change in the exam pattern of NATA. In the previous pattern, 90 minutes time was allotted to both, the aptitude test as well as the drawing test. With the changed pattern, students will now get 60 minutes to solve the aptitude paper and 120 minutes to complete the drawing section.

There are quite a few other changes which have been proposed by the COA which will ease
the admission process for architecture.
