NATA – National Aptitute Test in Architecture

NATA Course Content

The aptitude of the candidate will be assessed using some or all of the following techniques:

  • Diagrammatic Reasoning – Tests the ability of logical reasoning, using diagrams and scenarios
  • Numerical Reasoning – Tests mathematical ability through simple problems
  • Verbal Reasoning – Assesses the ability to assess verbal logic.
  • Inductive Reasoning – Tests the ability to see patterns and analyze given data
  • Situational Judgment – Tests problem-solving ability.
  • Logical Reasoning – Tests ability to recognize patterns, sequences or relationships between shapes and imagery.
  • Abstract Reasoning – Will assess general knowledge, and ability to utilize knowledge in new situation

Questions on 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.

JEE (B.Arch)

Part-1: Drawing Test

Three dimensional – perception: Understanding and appreciation of scale and proportion of objects, building forms and elements, colour texture, harmony and contrast. Design and drawing of geometrical or abstract shapes and patterns in pencil.

Transformation of forms both 2D and 3D union, substraction, rotation, development of surfaces and volumes, Generation of Plan, elevations and 3D views of objects. Creating two-dimensional and three dimensional compositions using given shapes and forms. Sketching of scenes and activities from memory of urbanscape (public space, market, festivals, street scenes, monuments, recreational spaces etc.), landscape (river fronts, jungles, gardens, trees, plants etc.) and rural life.

Part-2: Aptitude Test

Awareness of persons, places, Buildings, Materials. Objects, Texture related to Architecture and build environment. Visualising three dimensional objects from two dimensional drawings. Visualising. different sides of three dimensional objects. Analytical Reasoning Mental Ability (Visual, Numerical and Verbal)

Part-3: Mathematics

Note: Mathematics section preparation will not included in 10 days brush-up course.


Drawing and Aptitude test: The test will consist of one paper of three hours duration

Freehand drawing: This would comprise of simple drawing depicting the total object in its right form and proportion, surface texture, relative location and details of its component parts in appropriate scale. Common domestic or day-to-day life usable objects like furniture, equipment, etc., from memory.

Geometrical drawing: Exercises in geometrical drawing containing lines, angles, triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, circles etc. Study of plan (top view), elevation (front or side views) of simple solid objects like prisms, cones, cylinders, cubes, splayed surface holders etc.

Three-dimensional perception: Understanding and appreciation of three-dimensional forms with building elements, color, volume and orientation. Visualization through structuring objects in memory. Imagination and aesthetic sensitivity

Composition exercise with given elements. Context mapping. Creativity check through innovative uncommon test with familiar objects.  Sense of color grouping or application.

Architectural awareness: General interest and awareness of famous architectural creations – both national and international, places and personalities (architects, designers, etc.) in the related domain.
