Placement troubles are a common scenario these days. Finding a job, in a reputed company and at a reasonable salary is something we all strive for. There are tonnes of us who are not into premium colleges and do not get the placement as per our expectations. Instead of panicking, time has come to look for alternatives and AMCAT is definitely one of them.
Most of you have heard about what AMCAT is…and some of you might have even taken it. For those who have not heard or are willing to know more about AMCAT, here is a brief introduction;
WHAT IS AMCAT?
AMCAT is one of the skill assessment test, its scores are accepted as a parameter for selection into many companies.
WHO IS IT FOR?
AREAS WHERE AMCAT TEST?
- QUANTATIVE APTITUDE
- LOGICAL REASONING
- VERBAL ABILITY
- AMPI: Aspiring Minds Personality Inventory modules
There is an additional module which assesses candidates on their domain specific knowledge e.g, programming skills for a B.Tech CSE, Excel skills for MBA etc
I will do a detailed blog on the types of questions asked in each section. Besides this blog is a comprehensive solution for all those looking for memory based AMCAT questions, I have seen many a blog which briefs people about what AMCAT is but never really touches on the questions actually being asked.
Some Of the Companies that hire from AMCAT;
- ERRICSON and many more……
PRICING: Yes, its a paid test and as on today 5-march-2014, it costs around 830 INR. Please visit http://www.myamcat.com for an updated price
PREREQUISITES; Though not mandatory, a general perception is that 60+% throughout the academics is desired by most of the companies, that means, 60+% in 10th, 12th and in Engineering, MBA, Graduation etc. A student in his pre-final year can take this test as well as scores are valid for 2 years.
REATTEMPTS; Once a candidate decides to re-take the test, it can only be done after a brief period of 3 months.
