Mark your calendars for the weekends between April and July 2024, because that's when the NATA fun begins. You have the flexibility to choose the date that suits you best for the exam, held in two sessions from 10 am to 1 pm.
Now here's the scoop – you can try your hand at NATA up to three times in a single academic year. The best part? Only the highest score among your attempts will be considered, giving you the best shot at achieving the test.
Don't forget to peek at the official NATA 2024 brochure on nata.in for all the nitty-gritty details. And guess what? Your NATA score remains valid for two academic years, so no need to rush!
But that's not all – for those eyeing the B.Arch program at IIT Kharagpur and IIT Roorkee, there's an extra challenge called the Architecture Aptitude Test (AAT). Only the JEE Main and JEE Advanced champs get a shot at this exclusive opportunity.
