MHRD has waived off the Eligibility criteria for NATA 2020 to score at least 50% marks in the qualifying exam to be eligible for admission to B.Arch courses. According to the revised eligibility criterion, a candidate just needs to acquire a Pass Certificate in order to be eligible for admission. 

The decision was taken in consultation with the Council of Architecture (CoA) on August 04, 2020. The Union Education Minister made this announcement through a tweet from his official twitter handle stating that since the CBSE and other Board exams were partially cancelled therefore the candidates who have passed 10+2 Scheme of Examination with PCM or 10+3 Diploma with Mathematics shall be eligible for admission to first year of B.Arch 20-21. The step has been taken in favour of students who faced difficulties in their academics due to COVID-19 Crisis.

However, with the revised eligibility criteria, the candidates just need to pass the qualifying exam irrespective of their score.
