Architecture is a popular career choice with students. To gain admission into the B.Arch course however, you will first need to sit for the NATA exam. This exam is prepared by the Council of Architecture (CoA) and is a prerequisite by most premier architecture colleges for admission purposes. Though the exam is considered challenging, strategic preparation and coaching will see hard-working students through. 

While nothing can replace diligence and dedication when preparing for the exam, the student should have a meticulously planned out timetable. You will need to follow it earnestly to complete the syllabus, revise the content and attempt old question papers too. The NATA aspirant should focus equally on all parts of the syllabus to guarantee success. Aside from section A which focuses on drawing and carries 125 marks, Section B includes PCM (Physics, Chemistry, Math) for 22.5 marks and General Aptitude and Logical Reasoning for 52.5 marks, making 200 marks totally. 

NATA questions usually focus on topics like:

  * Understanding scale and proportion

  * Effects of light and shadow

  * 3-Dimensional drawings

  * Sense of perspective

Here are some additional preparation tips for students:

  1. Practice sketching

  2. Practice mock tests

  3. Make short referral notes 

  4. Rest sufficiently and avoid stress
