The Ministry of Education on the recommendation of @CouncilofArchi1 has decided to relax the eligibility criteria for B. arch courses. The student's plea has forced the ministry to do so. Dr Nishank Pokhriyal in a tweet has mentioned that.
To that, he added that candidates who have passed the 10+2 scheme of examination with PCM subjects or 10+3 Diploma with Mathematics shall be eligible for admission to the first year of B.Arch. Course for 2020-2021 and the candidates should have qualified an aptitude test in #Architecture, i.e. #NATA or #JEE for admission to the B.Arch. Course.
As JEE Main is scheduled to be held from 1 to 6 September on the other hand NDA is also scheduled to be held on 6 September. Many students who have applied for both the exams have panicked and taken up this matter to tweet and many other social media platforms requesting the minister to make sure that the exam dates do not clash with each other.
