Also, you are ranked by score and time. Since, it is vast learning a few things consistently everyday is a very good strategy.
Do I have to clear JEE Advanced with any particular rank to sit for the Architecture Aptitude test? Is the syllabus of AAT same as that of JEE paper 2? 2 years ago

If you don’t have any reservation, you will need a rank below 7000-8000 for architecture in the JEE advanced.
As soon as the result is declared, you can give the AAT which you only have to QUALIFY.
If you qualify the AAT, then you will get a seat(architecture) in either IIT Roorkee or IIT Kharagpur COMPLETELY BASED on you IIT advanced rank.
And yeah, the syllabus for AAT is same as the JEE mains paper 2 one.. Although I think there’s only aptitude in that along with sketching. But if one is preparing well for JEE paper 2, they can qualify the AAT for sure.
Need information about orthographic views? 2 years ago
An orthographic is one way to describe a three dimensional object in two-dimensional space. Typically an orthographic will have the top, side and front views of an object drawn together with some kind of scale.
for NATA / JEE 2, you get a good number of orthographic questions.
For Nid / Uceed / Ceed you would get may be 1 or 2 questions.
None for NIFT exam.

Yes. the two sections will be administered separately with specific amount of time.
how much is drawing important in nata and uceed exams.what can we do to improve our skills in the drawing section of the question paper? 2 years ago
if you want to excel in the field of architecture, fashion and design then you have to be good in drawing. It is very important cause you will be presenting your ideas through drawing and sketches. Your drawing skills will tell the other person how creative and good you are. To see how much drawing is important, I will suggest you to go through the previous years NATA and UCEED papers.
Weightage of drawing in NATA Exam out of total 200 marks:- 2 question * 40 marks = 80 marks
You can see out of 200 marks 80 marks is based on drawing rest(120 marks) is mathematics and aptitude. The drawing section is very important and hard to score. This is the section which can make or break the deal.
To improve your drawing skills you can either join a classroom coaching program or an online one depending upon your convenience. By doing so not only your drawing will improve but you will get to learn how to tackle certain scenario based problems.

Now coming to your question, is it ohk to start now?? Yes of course it is ohk, you have the same chances of clearing the exam as the others. It all depends on your strategy, first go through the syllabus and see how many topics you have to prepare within the given time. In the initial days and weeks focus on clearing the basics of each and every topic. Dont worry if you take more time in solving the questions, your speed will improve as you will progress. Once you are done with your basics start giving mock tests on a regular basis and analyze them properly i.e where you went wrong, which topics you need to work on again.
