Exam Pattern 2018

The Council of Architecture will determine the NATA 2018 exam pattern. NATA 2018 will be conducted in both online & offline mode in three hours in which multiple choice questions will be asked from maths and general aptitude. Candidates will have to undertake a drawing test .

Candidates will be awarded 2 marks for every correct answer and there is no negative marking

The complete exam will be of three hours.

Candidates will have to select the correct answer by colouring the bubble in the OMR sheet by using black and blue pen.
