Now, review of NATA scores allowed

Following complaints by several students over low scores and discrepancies with the evaluation process of NATA (National Aptitude Test in Architecture), the Council of Architecture has thrown open an option for students to apply for revaluation.

The council took the decision after several students wrote to it seeking revaluation of papers over “unbelievably” low scores. As per rules mentioned in the NATA brochure previously, there was no room for reassessment.

In a mail to the students, the council said, “Based on the requests from students, the competent authority of the council has decided to allow the candidates to apply for review of scores awarded to them with a view to ensure that no meritorious or deserving candidate is put to any inconvenience or deprived of justice due to technical glitches, if any.”

Candidates can apply for revaluation and the procedure for doing so would be put up on the council’s website. The fee for review of scores is fixed at Rs 750.

It maybe recalled that students have raised several concerns with the announcement of NATA results.

While the aptitude results were revised thrice before the students received score cards, drawing results were recalled after they were uploaded on the site.

Most students who took the NATA exam also claimed that they had unbelievably low scores and had approached the council asking for a review of their scores and had started an online petition in this regard.
