In addition, some students took the test from home.
This is the first time the entire test has been run in online mode. There were some minor glitches, but anyone could complete the test, said members of the Council of Architecture.
“The exam is divided into two parts: Part 1 is 45 minutes for general aptitude and reasoning and Part 2 is 72 minutes for cognitive ability tests,” said Chandan Parab, a member of the Council of Architecture, architect.
He said Part 2 contains questions with high-resolution images for students to analyze. “The MICE Academy had a broadband speed problem and 12 students complained that the images were displayed slowly and questions were skipped due to connectivity issues. Five students were unable to sign in on the first attempt but were able to do so after 45 minutes replied first to part 2 and later to part 1, “said Parab.
Students have the opportunity to come back for the test on September 12th.
“Students who were unable to answer this test or who had software problems with the first test and want to answer again can register for another test, scheduled to take place on September 12 at www.nata.in before September 4,” said Parab .
Thermal screening was carried out on Saturday for students who answered the test at the two centers, and no student was found to have abnormal temperatures.
