Reasons for less Applicants for Nata exam in 2018: The Application issue started by jan 1st week and closed by feb 2nd week and this information dint reach many of students as they were under the impression that the application would be available online anytime between march to september as it was in 2016 and before. Even COA (council of Architecture) dint take enough effective steps to propogate this change in the application dates to the public.

   Hence there were many Architecture career aspirants who missed the chance to get the application in 2017 and lost the chance to grasp their dream career.


Reasons for less pass % in Nata exam in 2018: Like the sudden change in the application date, there was a critical change in the Nata exam sylllabus and pattern of exam. 20% of Maths was suddenly included in the syllabus and the Maths portions were a shock to most of students as it comprised of CBSE +1 and +2 Portions and hence,most of the State board students couldnt cope up with the less availablepreparation time of those suddenly included portions within 15 days after their 12th exams as the exam was scheduled on 29th april 2018 and the students completed their +2 exams only by the end of march 2018.


Confusions in B.Arch Admissions 2018:  As a result, there were less number of eligible candidates for admissions in to the archietcture colleges throughout india.In caseof tamil nadu, thestate decided to conduct one more Exam to increase the number of eligible candidates and ANNA UNIVERSITY conducted the architecture aptitude test for the students of tamil nadu in the name of "TANATA" by the end of june 2017.But by,the tme these information reached students, most of the frustrated disappointed students have already attended the Engineering counselling and joined the Engineering or arts stream.Therefore very less number of students took up this TANATA 2087.

       But the confusions dint end right there. The students who have scored rankings in NATA exam 2018 challenged this decision of anna university that the TANATA exam resuts would affect their rankings for admissions for the meritorous seats. Hence, he anna university declared that the students who pass TANATA would gain only the eligibility to join Architecture(B.Arch) through the management seats of any anna university affiliated college or deemed universities and that they would be given nil chance to appear for the Anna uniersity B.Arch single window system rank based counselling. Therefore the students were again left with less choices and unnecessary high fees - admissions in colleges.
