Is the AMCAT advantage for B.Tech Final Year Students?

Wondering as a B.Tech Final Year student, whether you should add the AMCAT advantage to your resume? We bring you a host of reasons how it will help.


Engineering and AMCAT testRamit, 22 is an engineering final year student, who seeks the right combination of words to make his resume look “attractive”. And like a majority of his kind, he misses the point that there might be at least half a million more similar looking resumes which use the same words in different formats or combinations. Result – professional disappointment and personal frustration. For a fresher job aspirant, that is too much to take.

The Aspiring Minds National Employability Report 2016 found that 80 percent of engineering graduates are unemployable – their skills either redundant or not in sync with market expectations. Most resumes thump these, though can’t objectively prove proficiency (in terms of a credible experience or a certification)!

So Ramit might be thinking, what can differentiate him? Well, his answer is right here.

Certified: The AMCAT advantage:

That is where AMCAT steps in. AMCAT is a computer adaptive test which measures job applicants on critical areas like communication skills, logical reasoning, quantitative skills and job-specific domain skills, helping recruiters identify the suitability of a candidate.

Like a trusted friend, AMCAT helps you understand your core strengths. Knowing the same would help you assess the current scenario and get the right job opportunities to kickstart your career.

Get Assessed

Consider a Common Aptitude Test (like the CAT or GATE), which places you on the same platform, pan-India as the rest of the graduating B.Tech batches and shows how you rank on domain skills – that’s the AMCAT advantage.

Why do you need a self-assessment – to know where you stand on metrics that matter (English, Logical, Domain Skills and Quants), where you require improvement and what careers would best suit your specific scores.

Be known for your own capabilities:

The adaptive test pattern means that each individual gets to compete on the basis of their own capabilities and not on some rigid criteria. After the results are out, it helps a fresher identify his/her competencies but also can be used to bridge the gap between the recruiters and job seekers. Many firms recognise the test results as a conclusive backing of the skill-sets mentioned in the CV.

AMCAT adds the necessary brownie points to the CV of the fresher who wishes to optimize his job search smartly. And maybe our friend Ramit can finally find the differentiating word for his CV.

Gain a leverage platform:

Engineers-at-heart, heed this well. Every year, India produces lakhs of engineering graduates – from the IITs, NITs to the small-time colleges in smaller cities and towns. Most of these engineers do not receive the premium set of job placements or an opportunity to get their resumes to the recruitment tables. This is where an equalisation platform like the AMCAT test would serve you best.

Apply to multiple engineering job opportunities

The AMCAT test database has been traditionally used by MNCstoe source engineering aspirants for mass positions, posting fresher jobs based on scores, locations and specific parameters.

At any given time the exclusive AMCAT jobs section on the website houses fresher job opportunities, which require domain specific candidates. You could apply for those too, based on your own performance in the AMCAT test.

To appear in AMCAT, one has to simply register on the website and select a test slot.


  1. Sir i am final yr mechanical student .amcat exam has also recurit in core mechanical company or only in It company.

  2. Sir, I am in 6th semester of my engineering can I apply now for amcat,,will my scores be considered when I will passout my B.E. in 2020

  3. Hello Shaumya,

    You can certainly appear for the exam. The validity of an amcat score remains valid for a period of 12 months, after which you can either choose to renew your amcat subscription for another year and use your score for applying to jobs, or can give the amcat again if your score in first attempt is not at par.
    In either of the cases, now is a good time to appear for the exam. You can register for the amcat exam here.

    All the best

  4. Sir,I am just pursuing my 3 rd yr 6 th sem,now can I appear for amcat to get a good score. And will my score can be considered when I will passout my 4 rth yr BE 2020

  5. Hello Pavani,

    The amcat score remains valid for a period of 12 months. Additionally, there is a provision where you can simply renew your amcat subscription to extend the validity of your score for another year. So, yes, your scores will be considered even when you graduate in 2020. Another advantage that you can get from giving the amcat exam now, is that if in case you are not able to score well you at least will now have the exposure and understanding of what to expect from the exam, so you will be better prepared for the second attempt.

    Hope this helps

  6. Sir I am a 3rd year student . Sir can I apply for AMCAT now or ut is for final year students. Is applying now is beneficial for me ? Sir please guide me…thanks

  7. Hi Manusha,

    You can give the amcat exam even now. While, of course, you will be able to start your job anywhere only after your graduation, what this will do is help you in two ways;

    1. If you score great in your amcat now, you don’t have to give it again in your final year, and can use the same score by simply renewing it (amcat score remains valid of 12 months) to apply for jobs.
    2. If you score below par, you will have the experience about the exam, and would know which all areas you need to improve upon (a review report is shared after the exam). Eventually, by the time you are in your final year and plan to take amcat again, you’d be better prepared.

    In both the cases, giving amcat even now can be beneficial. Hope this helps.

  8. Hi Suraj,

    Yes you are. Selection through amcat depends largely on your amcat score. So, if you manage to score well in your amcat exam, you should expect interview calls from software companies.

  9. Sir I’m pursuing my btech final year in mechanical department.will I get core based jobs?

  10. Sir, can I appear for AMCAT in 2nd year 3rd sem?
    Will my score be valid when I pass out in 2023?

  11. Hi, I just wanted to know if this exam is helpful or not for getting industrial training that happens during last semester?.

  12. Hi Rizual. An AMCAT score can help you in multiple ways. Apart from the job, you can utilize the score to showcase your competence in a specific field which will, in turn, help you upgrade your profile towards the training. Not only that, you can take a skill-certification assessment by AMCAT to build credibility. This will further showcase your seriousness towards your chosen field.
    All the best.
