    NATA Cut off 2020: Normalization Process

    On the basis of NATA Results, the normalization process of NATA score will be done. The Council of Architecture(CoA) will calculate after the declaration of results. Candidates can normalize their NATA score using the method mentioned below:

    The NATA score secured by the candidates has to be divided by 2 and then add the board percentage (out of 100) and then divide the aggregate by 2. That will give you the final merit list of NATA. 

    For Example: If you scored 120 in NATA exam and 80% in the board exams, the normalized score will be calculated as, 120/2 + 80 = 140
