The National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA)
National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) is conducted by Council of Architecture (COA) since 2006. It measures the aptitude of the applicant for specific field of study, i.e. Architecture. The test makes an assessment of drawing and observation skills, sense of proportion, aesthetic sensitivity, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics at 10+2 level and critical thinking ability that have been acquired by the candidate over the past few years and are related to the specific field of study. The examination is conducted in two sessions.
