The President of Council of Architecture (CoA), Vijay Garg, said on Monday that the National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) will be conducted two times in a year from the coming academic year (2019-2020). In addition to that, he said that the council has also planned to have a national level counselling for admissions into B Arch courses.

Although earlier, this exam was compulsory for entering into the bachelor of architecture and was being conducted only once a year in April, there were concerns of stakeholders that the exam date might clash with CBSE board exams. So at the requests of several states to postpone the exam or to have exams twice a year, the council has decided to have two exams- one in the first week of July and second in the mid-April. And the students have the choice to write either one or both the exams. Both exam scores will be added to find the best score. 

The eligibility criteria have also been revised. According to Mr. Garg, “Students from humanities also can get admitted into B Arch after taking additional exams in physics, chemistry, and mathematics conducted by the CBSE.” Additionally, the exam pattern has also been changed. Garg said that while earlier both drawing papers and aptitude test were given an equal 90 minutes each, but to improve the performance, from the coming academic year the time of both aptitude paper and drawing paper will be increased.
