NATA Cut Off 2024 Normalization Process

Normalization will be done based on the NATA Result. It will be calculated by the Council of Architecture (COA) after the declaration of the result.

You can normalize your NATA Score using the method mentioned below:

Your NATA score must be divided by 2, add the board percentage (out of 100), and then divide the aggregate by 2.

For Example: 

If you scored 120 in NATA and 80% in your board exams, then the normalized score will be

= 129/2 + 80

= 140
