Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.)
B.Arch. (Bachelor of Architecture) is a 5 years long undergraduate level Degree course. This professional course is related to the field of Architecture.
Architecture deals with design, planning and construction of buildings and other physical structures. Usually buildings and physical structures are said to be the product of architectural work. Sometimes, other than buildings, even construction of nonbuilding structures becomes a part of architecture.
In short, architecture plays a huge role in the design and construction of humble homes and buildings to imposing dams, bridges and tunnels! An architect is a professional, who through his/her skills, is able to perform the tasks of planning, designing and constructing buildings, physical structures and non building structures.

NATIONAL APTITUDE TEST IN ARCHITECTURE (NATA)
NATA was the approved Aptitude Test for getting admission into B. Arch. and is conducted by the COA. The test measures the required aptitude of a candidate for successfully completing the Architecture course.
ELIGIBILITY
Candidates may come from the following backgrounds:
 10+2 or equivalent passed/appearing with Mathematics as one of the subjects of examination;
 10+3 Diploma (any stream) passed/appearing recognized by Central/State Govt. with Mathematics as one of the subjects of examination;
 International Baccalaureate Diploma passed/appearing, after 10 years of Schooling with Mathematics as compulsory subject of examination.
However, if any candidate is applying for B.Arch. then he/she must have cleared senior secondary (10+2) examination with mathematics as one of the subjects or equivalent examination and secured minimum 50% aggregate in 10+2.
WHO SHOULD APPEAR FOR NATA?
Any person who want to take admission to Bachelor of Architecture (B.Arch.) shall appear in NATA, since most of the colleges/ school of Architecture take admission on the basis of NATA. However, there are various other methods adopted by various Schools of Architecture for the admission of B.Arch. For further details, the respective website of Colleges/ Schools of Architecture shall be visited.
WHERE TO APPEAR FOR NATA?
NATA 2019 will be conducted 2 times in this year 14th April 2019 & 7th July 2019, with last registration dates to be 15th March 2019 and 12th June 2019 respectively.
WHAT ARE THE MAJOR CHANGES IN THE NATA 2019?
NATA 2019 has following major changes as compared to earlier version of NATA exam;
 NATA 2019 will be conducted 2 times in this year 14th April 2019 & 7th July 2019, with last registration dates to be 15th March 2019 and 12th June 2019 respectively.
 The mode of examination has been converted from online to offline mode in NATA 2019. Now, unlike other entrance examinations the OMR sheets needs to be filled for the aptitude exam and for drawings sketches needs to be made on the sheets provided during the exam.
 The duration of examination is similar to previous versions of NATA, i.e. for 3hrs divided into two parts;
Date & Time of Examination  Subject and Marks of Examination 
29.04.2018 (Sunday) 10.30 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. (Grand Total of 200 marks)  FIRST 90 minutes  Part A TOTAL 120 Marks Mathematics (MCQ) 20X2 = 40 Marks (ONLINE) General Aptitude (MCQ ) 40X2 = 80 Marks (ONLINE) 
LAST 90 minutes Part B TOTAL 80 Marks Drawings (Two questions) in A4 Size paper 2X 40 = 80 Marks 
 The total marking for the NATA exam is same i.e. 200 marks for the total exam; however the distribution of marks against each component of exam has changed. Now, Part A (Mathematics and General Aptitude) exam with MCQ's is for 120 marks and Part B (Drawing) is for 80 marks.
Syllabus for NATA2018 Subject  Questions  Distribution of Marks  Marks  Mode of Exam  
Mathematics & General Aptitude (PartA)  Mathematics  20  20 x 2  40  MCQ (OMR based) 
General Aptitude  40  40 x 2  80  MCQ (OMR based)  
Drawing test (PartB)  02  2 x 40  80  Paper and Pencil  
TOTAL  200 
 The syllabus for NATA 2019 contains a significant part of mathematics, with 20 questions of 2 marks each exclusively reserved for mathematics. This was not there in earlier versions of NATA. However, the syllabus for General Aptitude and Drawing tests remains similar to the previous versions of NATA.
 Minimum passing marks for clearing the exam has been reduced to 50 marks out of 200 Marks, with minimum score of 25 marks in each part of the exam. In earlier versions of NATA exam the minimum passing marks was 80 out of total 200 marks.
 After the test results are out, each passing candidate will be provided a unique ranking on all India basis, which will be valid for the admission season of that year only. So for NATA 2019, the validity of results will be only for 2019 unlike the previous versions of NATA where score remained valid for two years.
