NATA Colleges 2017 & Number of Seats

by Ankita Sabharwal

This article discusses the NATA colleges that are the list of architecture colleges that accept NATA score for admission into the First year of 5 year B.Arch Degree Course at all recognised Institutions in India. NATA is just a qualifying exam, and the students have to go through the admission process of each college individually as there is no common NATA Counselling for admission into architecture colleges. Here we have discussed the Architecture colleges are accepting NATA Score, Seat availability and the location of these colleges. The list of top architecture colleges list is also given below.

It is necessary for the college offering B.Arch that they get approval from Council of Architecture (COA) and AICTE approval, in this case, will not be considered as a sufficient approval for the college/institution.

National Aptitude Test in Architecture, popularly known as NATA is a single largest National Level Examination for admission to various Architecture courses in NATA colleges in India. It is conducted by National Institute of Advanced Studies in Architecture (NIASA) to select the students for five years B.Arch Programme in various colleges across India. NATA is a compulsory exam for taking admission to any Architectural College or course in India (Except NITs & IITs) and is an eligibility test for admission into the Architecture Course.

Current NATA policy states "the main reason for conducting NATA is to provide a single scheme of examination for holding aptitude test so that the students from all over the country can apply for admissions in architecture seats in institutions spread across the country. Final Admission processes are carried out only by the concerned designated authorities of the respective states/ institutions who accept the score of NATA.
