NATA admission form

The objective of NATA is to simplify the process of admissions to architecture by holding a single scheme exam to assess aptitude of students interested in architecture, thus eliminating the need to appear in multiple aptitude tests.

Upon filling the personal details section, candidates will be guided to document upload section.

Candidates have to set a password for further process of NATA admission form (uploading images, printing e-challan, fee payment, printing confirmation page, correction of data during dates specified by council, viewing OMR and result details after exam etc ). Candidates also need to set a security question and answer just in case they forget the password in the future.
