NATA Syllabus 2022 - Check General Aptitude Syllabus

The Council of Architecture (CoA) will hold the authority to prescribe the syllabus for NATA 2022. This year, the entrance exam will have questions only from aptitude, and there will be no drawing test in 2022.

Your general knowledge related to mathematics and drawing may be assessed in the aptitude section itself.

Read through the post that will give you a complete insight into NATA Syllabus 2022, best preparation books, and more.

The aptitude test will comprise questions that could be of the Multiple-Choice type (MCQ), Multiple Select types (MSQ), Preferential Choice type (PCQ), and Numerical Answer type (NAQ).
