Presently the number of schools offering five years B. Arch. Degree course in the country are approximately 303 and admission to the course in all schools of architecture is compulsorily through aptitude tests. The syllabus and pattern of the tests are prescribed by Council of Architecture.
Many students from science stream have art aptitude and likewise students from art stream have aptitude for science. They all intend to seek admission to B. Arch course and need proper guidance. Today there are several guides available in the market for mathematics and science subjects but none for architecture aptitude tests covering the syllabus of NATA.
Many coaching centres are providing expert coaching for IIT and B.Tech. but very few experts are available for architecture entrance examinations. The main reason for the same is that in Architecture Entrance Examinations, there is not a single question asked from physics, chemistry, mathematics, English, or general knowledge. Only qualified and experienced architects can provide coaching and guidance for architecture entrance exams.
