B Arch or Bachelor of Architecture is a five year undergraduate degree program in Architecture. It is basically the theory and practicals of planning, designing and construction of different types of physical structures. Students who has an interest in designing and building things can develop their skills through this course. B Arch is an extensive course which covers all the aspects of architecture. There are many similarities to the syllabus of civil engineering. But, this one is more deep.
One should have better knowledge in mathematics to join this course. Getting admission to Bachelor of Architecture depends not only on the 12th standard marks. But also the score in NATA exam( National Aptitude Test in Architecture). NATA exams includes questions from physics, chemistry, mathematics, logical reasoning and general aptitude. Approximately 30,000 students attends NATA exam each year.

Students who had completed Bachelor of Architecture will get jobs in different sectors of architecture field and civil engineering. Some of the job profiles are mentioned below
B.Arch Candidates can find work in different sectors of construction. Such as Interior design, urban planning, construction projects etc.
Yes, it is a highly demanded course in the field of architecture. B Arch candidates gets more preference than civil engineering and interior designing students.
10+2 with physics, chemistry and mathematics. Pass mark in NATA exam is a must.
Basically, 4 to 5 LPA. However, after getting good experience in the field, you will get above 8LPA.
