38% dip in B Arch applicants, students blame eligibility criteria

Several B Arch students raised objections against the change in eligibility criteria by the Council of Architecture (CoA), especially, since many have scored well in JEE

The pre-admission registrations for several technical courses including Bachelor of Architecture (B Arch) ended recently and figures revealed by the state common entrance test (CET) cell shows registrations for the course has dipped by almost 38% this year.

From 5,567 registrations in 2020, the number stands at 3,465 this year. Students have blamed this decrease in demand on the recent decision by the Council of Architecture (CoA) to only accept the National Aptitude Test in Architecture (NATA) as opposed to Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) scores, which was also acceptable until last year.

Several students raised objections to this change in the ruling, especially, since many have scored well in JEE. However, due to the change in eligibility criteria, many B Arch aspirants are opting to appear for NATA once again in 2022 and apply for admissions next year.

“Most students appeared for JEE and NATA, and while everyone scored well in JEE, most found the first two sessions of NATA very tough. In a year when students have already gone through too much, the last thing they needed was a change in eligibility criteria. These students have slogged at least two years preparing for the entrance exam and now it’s of no use,” said the mother of a B Arch aspirant. 

Until the 2020-21 academic year, B Arch aspirants were allowed to register using either their JEE-Mains or the NATA score. However, this year, following a notification from the CoA, it has been clarified that JEE scores will only be accepted for admissions to IITs, NITs and central universities, whereas all other universities/institutes will accept the NATA score only.

This year, both JEE and NATA exams were held in multiple sessions, mainly to give students the option of choosing the best score out of the multiple sessions, and at the same time, also giving students the option of a backup session, in case they missed the previous session due to Covid-related issues.

Many B Arch aspirants have now decided to appear for NATA exam in 2022 and apply for admissions for the next academic year. 

“My daughter appeared for the first two sessions of NATA as well as two sessions of JEE. While she has scored 98 percentile in JEE, her NATA score is low, and until now she was not worried because we were under the impression that the JEE score will be applicable. Because of this change in eligibility criteria, my daughter will either lose a seat in a college of her choice or lose the entire year and try again next year,” said the father of another aspirant.

UGC allows 40 percent of courses to be conducted online

 UGC allows 40 percent of courses to be conducted online | India Today | 23 November 2021 |

UGC has allowed colleges and institutions to conduct up to 40 percent of the courses online, using the SWAYAM website. The students can now attain 40 percent of the courses online through SWAYAM website, as per the UGC.

The University Grant Commission, UGC, has allowed universities to conduct up to 40 percent of the courses online, using the SWAYAM website. This will help students to opt for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). The National Education Policy (NEP) has suggested conducting online classes as it has a wider reach, expanding the access of the students from across and anywhere in the country and increasing the GER.

40 percent of the courses will be completed online

As per the UGC, students can, side by side, attend the SWAYAM courses and their university studies at the same time. The score received on the SWAYAM website will be covered by certification and will be added to their degree programme, as well. Earlier, the credit limit was only 20 percent, and now it has been raised to 40 percent, making the courses more accessible. For this, UGC has directed colleges and institutions to set up a curriculum that suits well with the courses offered through the SWAYAM website. Further, it has directed the colleges to make the necessary amendments within four weeks from the date of publication in the Official Gazette so that there is an integration between the institutions and the courses offered through SWAYAM. This will help the students to have clarity and help them choose a course wisely, which would complement their degree programme and help their credit score.
