NATA 2021 replaces UPSEE for admission in BArch at Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University, Uttar Pradesh
NEW DELHI: The Dr APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University (AKTU) announced on Wednesday that admission to BArch in affiliated colleges will be based on the National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA 2021) scores. The NTA replaces the Uttar Pradesh State Entrance Examination (UPSEE) for admission to undergraduate architecture programmes.
Students looking to apply for admission in BArch for the academic year 2021-22, now need to pass the NATA exams, as per AKTU’s announcement.
The NATA is a national-level examination for admission to undergraduate courses in the field of architecture which is conducted by the Council of Architecture. The exam is split into two parts, NATA Part A is a drawing test and Part B is based on subjects of the non-medical science stream, plus general aptitude test. There have already been two rounds of NATA 2021 this year, in April and in July. Given the pandemic situation, the CoA will hold a third in September.
The exam is conducted twice a year across the country. Earlier the admissions to BArch course in ATKU were done based on the state level entrance exam - Uttar Pradesh State Entrance Exam (UPSEE) conducted by AKTU. Similarly, the national-level JEE Main has replaced UPSEE for admission to undergraduate engineering, BE and BTech programmes.
The university offers a five year course in BArch. In addition to this the university also changed the admission process for BTech, now students are required to pass the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE) from this academic year.
