NATA Syllabus in Previous Year

As per the official brochure for NATA 2022 , Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry are not focused. Rather, Aptitude is the key from which questions will be framed. However, various other topics have been mentioned which may be asked to test the candidate's understanding of basic concepts. Thus, such topics which were mainly asked till the previous year may be referred to from the tables below:
