You can Smartly prepare to get into IIT, NIT & SPAs. Preparation goes beyond just sketching and aptitude. It is a mindset which the NATA Selection panels are looking for. The tips below will help you get a huge advantage to your seat.
This is why  if you are considering a degree in architecture, you need to graduate from the best institutes i.e. IIT, NIT or SPA’s
However, getting through to a architecture program at IIT, NIT or SPA’s is really tough.
The aptitude test of NATA may comprise questions of MultipleChoice type (MCQ), Multiple Select type (MSQ), Preferential Choice type (PCQ) and Numerical Answer type (NAQ) and Match the following type (MFQ)
The questions will carry 1 mark, 2 marks or 3 marks and 125 questions have to be answered in 180 minutes.
The medium of Aptitude test will be essentially English language.
Some questions may be in regional languages also.
The aptitude of the candidate will be assessed using some or all of the following techniques:
Questions could be asked in various topics that assess candidates on basic concepts in mathematics, physics and geometry, language and interpretation, elements and principles of design, aesthetic sensitivity, colour theory, lateral thinking and logical reasoning, visual perception and cognition, graphics and imagery, building anatomy and architectural vocabulary, basic techniques of building construction and knowledge of material, general knowledge and current affairs, etc. and are may not be limited to those outlined.
