The Council of Architecture (CoA) has prescribed the syllabus for NATA 2021. This year, the entrance exam will have questions only from aptitude and there is no drawing test in 2021.

General knowledge of the students related to mathematics and drawing may be assessed in the aptitude section itself. This post takes you through complete details about NATA Syllabus 2021.

## NATA 2021 Syllabus for General Aptitude

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).

Here is the list of important topics under all sections. During your preparation ensure to go through **NATA Cut Off** so that you are aware of category-wise qualifying marks.
