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.
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 website www.nata.in.
NATA can be given as many number of times as desired by the candidate. For every attempt, however, a new NATA Registration form is to be submitted online by the candidate at the NATA website. The mark list will show the average of marks scored by the candidate in his last attempt and his previous valid score.
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.
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.
Do not register for repeat attempt unless you receive score card for previous attempt.
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.
