  1. I took the amcat test on august 2016.I got the score and getting job invites from various companies so i applied to all such companies.But i am not getting any interview call.Before taking the test kept full hope on AMCAT but now really upset with it …

  2. I took amcat exam and i got a mail from amcat regarding registration for accenture and it’s been a week I didn’t recieved any calls or mails for accenture interview.

  3. My case is also similar to them.I took amcat exam 6 months later and got good score, since then i’am applying for different electrical companies.Since then,to now i haven’t got a single mail from those applied jobs to appear for the interview.Those jobs are getting expired and just loosing my hope of getting an interview mail.Due to all this i just want to know how people get shortlisted by you people for further rounds.

  4. Dear Sri,

    We can understand how you may feel – we will be looking into a definition of a good score to help you judge how yours holds up against the rest of the bunch. The shortlisting happens not from our end, but from the companies which delve into our database. Some choose a specific geographic location, or give preference to individual section scores, rather than the average score (which might be a great one!). There have also been companies who were looking for candidates from a specific batch (say 2015 or 2017)! We would request you to be patient and keep applying – and have a relook at your sectional break-up.

  5. Will i get accenture interview call only if i belong to same city of interview location or there is chance for other cities candidates also?

  6. sir i am not getting a single call from amcat for any company my score is good but i am not getting asingle call.
    i am applying for accenture but after some time jobs are automatically expired.what i do now?

  7. hello,i got invite from cognizant to apply for it through amcat .does it mean i will get interview call?

  8. I appiled for the job post few days before when i was eligible for it but now it is showing that job is expired. What should i do regarding that job post?

  9. Hey any one ple3 teller that in case if someone is from CS background and instead of selecting programming module he selected any other like finance and marketing.Bt he scores good percentile, then ‘ll be get a call from IT company or not.

  10. Hi Himanshu,

    The expiry date is set by the company as a stop date – after which they process applications. I would request you to remain calm and wait for a call.

  11. I am ECE student from Kolkata, my AMCAT score in English—575,quant—515,logical—695,computer programing—695.What are my chances to get job in Accenture?

  12. Hello sir ,I took amcat and got good score and i have been shortlisted for many companies but iam not getting the interview call letters.

  13. I have wrote my amcat exam on april 4 ,..I applied for accenture on the day of immediately when i recieved the results . today its showing like ‘expired’ ..what does it mean? ..i will not get call from accenture or the application registration has been closed .

  14. I had applied to Accenture and cognizant through my amcat score .how many days should I wait to get a call or mail from them.will I definitely get or not?

  15. Dear Suwathikaa,

    Jobs posted on MyAmcat are for a small duration, which can be either extended (if the company needs more candidates) or even closed early (if they have found enough of them). You may still get a call on these two jobs, if the company is still shortlisting from the set of candidates who have applied for it.

  16. I have applied for Accenture on receiving email from Amcat. The interview locations do not have my city, so I have given another preferred location. To move to that location i will have to make bookings. Can you please tell me the tentative date for the interview.

  17. Hi mam i got the jib invite from cts on may 4th but they still didn’t send me the mail of interview. What should i do now?

  18. I took the amcat test on march 2017.i got good score and i applied to Accenture and cognizant.But i am not getting any interview call.Before taking the test i kept full hope on AMCAT but now really upset with it.

  19. I am from 2013-2017 batch. I recently took amcat and my sectional percentile is Eng: 99.1, Quant: 98.6, Logical: 83, Computer Programming: 85, Computer Science: 76. What are my chances of getting shortlisted by an IT company? And can you tell me when more companies for 2017 pass out will start hiring?

  20. Dear Shiv,

    IT jobs for 2017 graduates are available in our jobs section. We’ve recently explored score cut-offs on our blog – so you can go and compare your overall scores there!

  21. Hi Prasannarasiraju,

    We have recently looked at AMCAT scores and company cut-offs on our blog. I would urge you to go through it before looking at your chances with these companies.

  22. I wrote test on 22nd April 2017 getting several job invitations but yet to get a single interview call
    I got invitation from your Aspiring minds also how couldn’t i get interview call from your own company?

  23. I have taken my AMCAT in 2014 when I m in my final year B.Tech. And my session has expired last year. Now i am in my final year M.Tech can i rewrite the exam for betterment with the same AMCAT ID in order to get a good score without renewal or is there any necessity to register again?

  24. Pls share your AMCAT ID. And go through your own AMCAT scores – are they above the minimum marks level (check our piece on What’s an AMCAT good score).

  25. what will happen if, after confirming interview calls at amcat , i am unable to attend it?

  26. Hi,
    I have taken AMCAT n got a good score. Thereafter I have started applying for jobs. Till now, all the jobs I have applied is shown in applied history, one offer was shown in invited history. What does “invited” mean?

  27. I took the Amcat(second time) a few days ago. Scores: English- 85.3 Quant- 79.6 Logic- 93.1 Computer Prog – 99.8 Computer Science- 83.1. I have not got shortlisted by any companies so far. Instead getting shortlisted for very few in my old profile (containing prev amcat scores). What does this mean?

  28. Hi Sohini,

    As you have already shared, it has been just a few days since you took the AMCAT Test for the second time. It takes time for the calls to begin (in fact we have heard from some candidates that they had to wait for at least a month for them). We request you to be a little patient till then.
    Meanwhile, our support team is also going through your case of jobs on the old profile vs the new one.

  29. I took the AMCAT on 16th July 2017 and got a good AMCAT result on 17th July 2017.
    Here are my percentiles:
    ENGLISH: 99.9
    Quantitative Ability: 98.7
    Logical Ability: 95.8
    Computer Programming: 92.3
    Since then, I got job invites from many companies in which I have applied but haven’t received a single interview call or any email from those companies till yet. Now I am feeling I have simply wasted my money by giving this exam.

  30. Hi Deepanshu,

    We request you to be patient. Sometimes, it can take upto a month or two for the results to translate into company interviews, due to external factors – lesser jobs on the horizon or companies evaluating a larger set of candidates. We have, in the meantime, communicated your response to our technical support team.

  31. I have given AMCAT on March , now I again gave on 23 July to score more than previous .Now I want to know which score will be sent to the recruiters and which AMCAT ID I have to fill while applying for any drives(Accenture and MindTree specifically)as both tests have their own individual AMCAT ID.

  32. I took the amcat test on August 2017, my score was good but still now haven’t received a single interview call yet. I have applied to the jobs but of no use. Even I tried to contact support@aspiringminds.in but there was no reply either. Highly disappointed with AMCAT. I don’t think I should recommend AMCAT to anyone.

  33. I got shortlisted for cognizant interview,i got a text message to my mobile that “Confirm your participation by logging in to myamcat.com”,but when i try to open it’s showing the oppurtunities,not the confirnation link,how to do confirmation,please let me know

  34. Hello sir/ mam
    I am 2015 pass out and i have scored good marks in amcat now i am confused wether i will get call or not .please asure me ?

  35. Hi,
    This is priya. My amcat score is 2400 out of 3600.I got this in my first attempt. Is this a good score? In which kind of companies will I get job offers? Is this score good one or should I try again? I have many qstns revolving in my head. So please kindly clear my confusion.
    Thank you

  36. I have applied for cognizant.. and now the job is expired without getting an an interview call.
    What does that mean?

  37. Hi Meghanaa,

    It could mean multiple things:
    1. The time limit for the vacancy has run out.
    2. The recruiter has closed the requirement – they have closed the vacancy (either fulfilled or put on hold)
    3. Your application reached them after their decision to close the position
    4. Your application was screened and rejected.

    We request you to remain calm and wait for a similar opening to reopen. You could also go through your AMCAT score once again.

  38. I have given my amcat on 15th of november 2017 and my score was pretty good . I have applied for so many companies. After 30 days of my exam i started getting some job invite but i have not recieved further conformation regarding the interview. I want to know that if i got invite then will i get a call or not.

  39. I registered in cognizant through amcat but I never got a call or mail regarding the interview place and time now the job posting shows it is expired…If I register to any other jobs how will I get to know about the interview date and time.

  40. Hi Annie,

    When you apply for a position on the AMCAT jobs board, the company receives your details along with your AMCAT score breakup. They shortlist candidates on the basis of this and connect with the ones they choose. You may have not made the cut, or the company filled their candidate requirements before taking up your candidature.

    We request you to keep calm and apply to relevant, matched jobs – after logging into the jobs board with your registered email ID.

  41. I have given my amcat on 16 December 2017. It’s been more than 25 days but I have not got any interview calls from any companies even the ads are expired. Please tell me reason behind this.

  42. Is AMCAT really useful for job seekers?
    I am getting confused after going through the reviews.
    Don’t we get interview calls after writing the exam?

  43. Hi Sneha,

    Honestly, AMCAT as a skill assessment works in two ways – it assesses you on common counts that companies look for – English, Quants, Logical Reasoning and your subject score. It also acts as a bridge between exclusive job postings on our platform and assessed candidates.

    It’s dependent on your preparation and the scores you receive in the Test. Interview calls, as we have ourselves seen in AMCAT Success Stories: Reviews and Testimonials, begin from two weeks after your results – as it takes that long for recruiters to start seeing your scores in their database searches. We have also talked to candidates, who got them nearly a month after. However, the flow remains consistent. And you can connect the dots with The Test.

    Hope this helps you with your question.

  44. Dear Neha,

    The drive for Hyderabad location is slated to be conducted in a couple of weeks. In case your profile is found to be eligible, you will be sent admit cards in the next 15 days.”

  45. Sir i took amcat on mar 6 2017 . I didn’t got a single call from any company upto september month . After september I got a call from accenture and I applied . I didn’t got any response and it expired. Is this how amcat works!!

  46. Hi Srimensega,

    Can it be because of your AMCAT scores? Getting through AMCAT does align you with matched possibilities, but it is dependant on the kind of score you received – as your scores become a part of the candidate database. If they’re not good enough, you may fare less as compared to other students who have taken the assessment.

  47. I am planning to take AMCAT test but I have some doubts to clarify.In the AMCAT job list it shows that apply for Accenture, cognizant.So if I give the AMCAT now will I get the opportunity to attend those interviews

  48. I got shortlisted for cognizant analyst trainee does that mean if I apply then is I can give interview surely?

  49. I have recently taken amcat test on 11th march 2018. I secured 94.4 percentile in english,97.1 % in logical ability,97.4 % in computer programming,92.7 % in computer science, 50% in quant. What are my chances of getting job offers?
    My amcat ID: 130010283720192

  50. I had applied for Programmer analyst trainee in cts through my amcat profile but did not get the link to take up the coding assessment from home inspite of having good amcat score….. my friends got the link for the test except me…. its been 15 days since i applied for the position…. very disappointed with amcat… i am loosing out job opportunities this way

  51. I gave my amcat test on 11 march and got job invities on site after results. But now its been a week since I applied for those job invities but didn’t receive any mail or message. Is getting a job invite does not mean that I will get Interview mail??

  52. I scored good in amcat. I got 7 companies invitation but it has been 3 weeks i hadn’t received their interview call. Please reply to this instantly as i have to look for some other source to get placed.

  53. Hi Nikhil,

    Thanks

  54. Hi ,
    Please reply me if anyone got placed through amcat.
    If so, then in how many days after the result did u get the call?

  55. Hi ,
    I got interview call letter from syntel I’m unavailable on that date to attend my interview..may I get admit card from the same company in different date

  56. If I give amcat from one city, do I get interview calls from other cities too?

  57. Hi,
    I got my amcat score on 21 may and I applied for some jobs through amcat app. It’s been a week and I didn’t get any invitations. Is that a problem or when will I get invited?

  58. Hi Priyadharshini,

    It does take a short while before you start getting interview calls from companies. But, once it begins, you’ll get calls in good numbers. So, would recommend you to be a little patient with this. You will definitely get calls.

    All the best!

  59. Hi Shabeeha,

    Yes. It may so happen that you get calls for openings in other cities. You scores are shared with companies, and they then decide according to the requirements, however, most of the times it’s from the same city you appeared for the exam from.

    All the best!

  60. I took after a few days ago and i applied for 2 companies but now it is showing it is expired what does that mean ? am i not shortlisted ?

  61. Hi Jithin,

  63. I had given my amcat on march 2018 and then also shortlisted for 5 companies, but event after successful registration I am not getting any further mails regarding interview details and it’s been a long while.

  64. Hi Sravanthi,

    We would like to inform you that, it may take a while before you start receiving calls from companies, but you certainly will; rest assured. You just need to be a little more patient.

    Thanks and all the best!

  65. I sat for AMCAT on april 2018 and I am 2018 passout. I got mails and sms saying I have been shortlisted for cts, hexaware, syntel and mindtree but I am not getting any further information regarding interview details. Are these mails and sms valid and are there any chance these companies going to call me for interview?

  66. Hi Poulami,

    It may take a while before companies start their hiring process. The information, however, is certainly valid, as it reflects on the basis of your amcat scores, and the minimum cut-off required by the companies. Our support staff will also get in touch with you to give you further clarification on this.

    Congratulations and all the best!

  67. I have taken amcat on May 4 th 2018 in my college. I was shorlisted for some companies. I received mails and messages about them.But when I apply for them it shows that you have to take amcat. What should I do now?

  68. I’m getting lot of interview invites , but they are from different cities. I am ready to work in different cities but I cant travel everywhere for interview. Can’t I give interview from my city? Help me knowing how interview system works. I’m missing out lot of good opportunities because of this.

  69. hi sir,
    I had my second amcat exam on may 24th of 2018, which was conducted on my college i and i am very glad to say that on the next day i got a shortlisted mail for cognizant analyst trainee. And at the same time my name was there in a list that you forwarded with my college on last week. They told to apply for the PAT position and the interview date will be announced soon. do i need to take any other aptitude or programming tests before attending interviews, is the shortlisting means that i am directly selected for their interview process? do i will get my interview call letter soon?

  70. Hello Honey,

    All the best!

  71. Hello Bhavana,

    You can contact your college’s TPO cell for the same. Meanwhile, one of our support team members will get in touch with you.

    All the best

  72. Hi Rohit,

    I can understand your problem, however, unfortunately, one need to walk towards the opportunity as it does not walk towards us. In your situation, I’d suggest, since you are getting several interview calls, pick the ones which you find the best fit and beneficial to you in terms of package, profile, learning, etc. You’d have to make decisions here.

    Hope this helps. All the best!

  73. Sir I m from Civil Back ground can I give Amcat sir?? Should I have to be through with some programming languages??

  74. Hello Raghavendra,

    You can definitely give the amcat exam. The exam’s prime focus is on engineers from all fields and civil being one of the prominent core branches, is certainly a part of our module. You can check the syllabus for civil engineering students here https://www.myamcat.com/amcat-syllabus

  75. Hi Sreeja,

    Once you give your amcat exam, your scores are registered in your amcat profile, and in our data base. Companies looking to hire get to see these scores and evaluate candidates on that basis, and call them for interviews.

    All the best!

  76. Hello Sahithi,

    So, if the button does not gets highlighted when the mouse has hovered on it, that means the job has expired.

  79. I am done with my amcat exam a week before but till now i didn’t get any mail or call or any sms regarding job

  80. Can anyone clarify my doubt regarding this Amcat recruitment process..?I scored 65% in 10th but 57% in 12th.I’m perusing my Btech II nd year CSE.I scored 70% in first year of Btech.since most of the it companies have eligibility criteria above 65% as I didn’t scored above 65 in 12th what’s my way??If I write Amcat ,coucbes,etc..will the companies accept me and offer a job with this Amcat?

  81. Hello Bhargavi,

    The whole idea behind the conception of amcat exam was to provide an equal platform to all students to get a job irrespective of how they performed their academics. If you score well in your amcat exam, rest assured, you will get a number of interview calls. Companies select candidates for interview on the basis of their amcat score; and not their 10th, 12th or graduation score.

    Hope this helps. All the best

  82. Hello Sandhya,

    Getting an interview call is completely on the company’s discretion and may take a while. However, if you have scored well, rest assured that you will get calls later or sooner.

  83. I have a query regarding recruitment process through amcat.I got interview call for CTS through amcat but couldn’t qualify.Will amcat send me interview call next time?After how many months later will amcat conduct the process again?

  84. Hello Ria,

    Interview calls are completely dependent on the respective company’s discretion. Don’t lose hope if you couldn’t crack the interview of one company. Stay positive and patient, and you will definitely get more calls and will get through this time. To prepare well for your interview and analyze what may have gone wrong, I’d recommend you try MockAI. You can get the tool here https://www.myamcat.com/products/mock-ai

    MockAI helps you practice a virtual interview session and analyze where you may be lacking and improve on the same to be ready for your forthcoming interviews.

    All the best

  88. I got 360 in English,490 in quants ,505 in logical ability,515 in optional,what percent of change to get a job through this marks……Guys plz tell me

  89. Hello Abhishek,

    What was the subject domain module (optional subject) you chose for the exam? And how much did you scored in it? A score of 515 is just at par to be very frank, which should get you job interview calls for sure; but that might just take a little longer. So, you need to be a little patient about it.

    All the best

  90. Hello Divyanshu,

    All scores are shared with the companies who are looking for candidates for a specific profile. Once you are done with your exam, the companies can see your scores and if found eligible, will connect with you on their own for scheduling interview.

    All the best.

  91. Hello,I have received a message”Great going.Recruiter has invited you to apply.Please confirm your application” for a couple of companies like cognizant sapient etc..,will I get interview call?

  92. Hello Supriya,

    Firstly, congratulations on your selection. If you have received this message, you should not waste a second to apply. A candidate receives this message when they have scored great in their amcat exam and are likely eligible to be called for the interview. So you can certainly expect an interview call soon.

    All the best.

  93. Sir, I have applied to Robert Bosch through amcat.my percentile section vise are

    Aptitude: 59.4
    But my score low in English.. So can I get interview call from Bosch?

  94. Hi Prakash,

    Selecting candidates and scheduling interviews is solely on the company’s discretion. However, your scores are promising, so stay positive and patient.

    All the best

  95. My expected date of graduation is may 2019. Can I take amcat now? and Do I get any opportunities as that of college placements.

  96. Hi Sharath,

    Of course you can take amcat now. In fact, considering you are in your last semester, it is the ideal time to prepare and give the amcat test and be job ready by the time you pass out from college.

    All the best

  97. I have given amcat on 1st September 2018 and I got a good score, I have applied for conginzant and many more companies but I’m not any call from those companies, please help me out sir .

  98. Hello Sir,
    Its been more than a month and a half since i have given my Amcat test, but still i havent got any calls from Big MNC’s company like cognizant, Syntel etc. Also i have got that message “Great going, based on your profile recruiter has invited you to apply.Please confirm your application” since a month now. I applied on that day only when i got this message but till now there’s no updates.
    Amcat ID – 130011746023982

  99. Hello Amol,

    I understand your situation and would like to inform you that once you have appeared for the amcat exam and receive the invite to apply, it is completely on the company’s discretion when they schedule the interview. So, would suggest you to wait a bit more. Alternatively, if you feel that it could be because of your scores, then you can plan to re-appear for the test and try and score better in your subject module.

    All the best

  100. Hi Shalini,

    Would like to inform you that scheduling interviews are completely on the company’s discretion. I’d suggest you to be a little more patient.
