NATA 2015: Easy tips and tricks to crack the exam

NATA entrance exam requires a lot of attention, dedication, hard work, analysis of the question patterns, reading and practice drawing extensively, to make it to the list of successful candidates. Often exam triggers fear and when it comes to NATA exam, it rises more apprehensions as there are limited number of seats for admission into architecture programs. The test is divided into two parts -- Drawing Section and Aesthetic Sensitivity Section. If you are gearing up for the NATA exam, here are few tips to perform well in the exam: NATA Drawing Section NATA s drawing test gauges a candidate s drawing, imagination and observation skills. In addition, a candidate s sense of color & composition, and proportion & perspective. The test is of 2 hour duration where a candidate needs to attempt three questions. An aspirant should use his imaginative, observation skills and creative ideas to draw something fresh or unique. Practice is a must for this paper, you cannot excel without putting efforts on a regular basis. The 1st question will carry a weightage of 50 marks. A candidate needs to understand the question exactly before drawing the picture. Developing the ability to sketch any given object proportionately and visually appealing. A candidate should be apt in sketching every day themes from memory with pencil and should have an understanding of scale and proportions. The 2nd question carries a weightage of 25 marks. The question would be testing how well a candidate excelled in creating two-dimensional composition, should be able to utilize colors in given a composition harmoniously and know how to create logos using geometric or non-geometric figures. The 3rd or last question of NATA exam also carries a total of 25 marks. A candidate needs to excel in creating 3-dimensional composition from geometric or non-geometric forms, and creating effects of lights on objects. Aesthetic Sensitivity Section This section consists of 40 multiple-choice questions which is designed to test perception, observation and imagination, communication and creativity along with architectural awareness of a candidate. He should develop the ability to visualize 3-dimensional objects from 2-dimensional drawings. Ability to identify commonly used materials and objects based on their textural qualities, should have good analytical reasoning, imaginative comprehension, architectural awareness and great mental ability. A candidate should analyze up to 20 years of NATA s previous papers, to understand the question patterns. He should keep himself updated with new, existing and old architectural structures in India and around the world by reading newspapers, architecture based magazines, journals and more. The more the candidate knows about architecture, the more are his chances of scoring well in the Aesthetic Sensitivity section. There is no negative marking in the NATA test, so you must attempt all the questions even if you are not 100% sure of an answer. Time management is essential so that you can attempt all questions within the given time frame. If you are looking for good reference books for NATA exam, here are few of the options: a) A Complete Self Study Guide for B. Arch Entrance Examinations by Arihant b) Architecture Entrance Book by P.K. Mishra c) NATA/AIEE B. Arch. Question Bank- 2015 d) Verbal & Non-Verbal Reasoning Book by R.S.
