Council of Architecture (COA) is all set to announce the National Aptitude Test for Architecture (NATA) 2021 Test 2 results today, July 15, 2021. The second exam was scheduled on July 11, 2021, and results for the same shall be published on the official website nata.in. A total of 25,860 students had applied for the second test. Out of the total students, 21,659 students appeared for the examination. For those students who could not appear for the NATA 2021 test 2 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, COA shall be conducting another attempt for such students most probably in August 2021.
Candidates who appeared for the NATA 2021 test 2 can check their results directly on the official website nata.in. To do so, they must click on the direct result link made available on the homepage of the website. Thereafter, they have to enter their log-in credentials in the spaces provided. After submitting their credentials, candidates shall be able to access their exam scorecard. They are advised to take a printout or download a copy of their results for future use.
COA shall be releasing the NATA 2021 test 2 results in the form of a scorecard. This scorecard or result sheet shall mention two important details – 1. Marks obtained by candidate in the exam out of 200 and 2. Candidate is qualified or not. According to the revised brochure, to qualify the NATA 2021 examination, candidates must score a minimum of 70 marks out of 200. Candidates who qualify the exam can use this score to get admission in various B.Arch colleges across the country for the academic session 2021-22. Thus, the validity of results is only for the upcoming academic session.
COA also provides a post-publication scrutiny or review facility in case a student wants his/her paper checked or scrutinised after the announcement of results. However, to avail this facility, candidates are required to pay Rs.3000. They must fill an online form which shall be made available once the results are announced. Thereafter, they must pay the prescribed fees within 3 days to get their paper re-checked. Beyond this timeline, no rechecking requests will be entertained by authorities.
The COVID-19 pandemic may have caused hurdles in the lives of NATA 2021 aspirants, as well. Due to these hurdles, many aspirants must have not been able to attend the second examination on July 11, 2021. Taking such students into consideration, COA is planning on conducting another exam in August 2021. However, students who have appeared for NATA 2021 twice already will not be allowed to give this attempt. More clarity on the same is expected in the coming days. In the meantime, candidates are requested to follow the official website to get their queries resolved.
