Is it possible to apply for NATA or any other solution ti apply NATA. Can I get admission in any one of the B.Arch college without appearing NATA. (i.e management quota). can you please suggest.

06 Mar, 2017 12:00

Hi D N, there are two ways to get admission in B. Arch Course, NATA and JEE Main paper 2. An underage candidate is not allowed to write NAAT exam (not even one day). If you don't want to write NATA exam, you may appear for JEE Main paper 2 next year as JEE Main 2017 has been conducted.  Well, the good thing is that next year you might apply for both of the exams. Here, we are providing you some of the top college's list for B. Arch Course, you may contact the colleges once regarding management quota. Please find the link for same
