No Interview calls after taking AMCAT“I scored pretty well in the AMCAT, so why am I missing out on job opportunities?” Isn’t this the question that comes to your mind when you don’t get interview calls after taking AMCATAre you confused about the shortlisting criteria adopted by companies?

Well, to answer these questions, let me take you behind-the-scenes to show as to what happens after you take AMCAT and what are the selection parameters adopted by the companies.

1. You will be assessed on multiple parameters before getting shortlisted by a company. Companies may look at one or more skills for a particular job profile.

2. When your AMCAT score matches the criteria for a company partnered with AMCAT, you will get a job interview.

3. At times, some companies also look at demographic factors like geographical location. Therefore, it is important to keep your profile updated so that we can send you as many opportunities as possible.

4. There are 1000s of small companies spread across the country, which hire freshers. AMCAT is recognized by many such companies nationally.

And……

Keep checking your profile on myAMCAT.com regularly. Ensure that it is completely up to date. Things that you should look out for:

1. Contact details like mobile phone, email ID.

2. Current location/address

3. Degree details/completion details/percentage marks

4. Preferred job location. 

However, different companies decide on a candidate depending on the sectional cut-offs across different modules. An IT Product company can have a high Computer Programming cut-off but a low English cut-off. An ITes company look for a candidate having good scores in Computer Fundamentals and Logical section whereas an SME can have an entirely different selection criteria.

Hence, you may infer that all companies have their own short listing criteria. It may happen that one company may shortlist candidates using high Logical Ability cut-off, while others may use a lower cut-off. You should remember that there is a job for every talented student! 

A small TIP!

There are modules which are compulsory for the test. Companies consider the compulsory module scores while shortlisting, so doesn’t miss out one while taking AMCAT! These are – English, Logical Ability, Quantitative Ability and Personality.

Aspiring Minds acts as a facilitator providing a platform for the students to showcase their skills to the corporate. The students, who perform well in AMCAT and meet the company-specified criteria, definitely get an interview opportunity.

Plus, There is always a SECOND CHANCE!!!

You can re-attempt the AMCAT exam after 3 months of the current attempt and improve your chances of being shortlisted. Further, Aspiring Minds provides the AMCAT feedback report which is a personalized feedback for each candidate. The section “Job Match” in the feedback report informs you about your chances of getting selected in companies of different sectors and the subjects to improve on, in order to get into the sector of your choice. All the best!

  1. I have gotten more then 80% in the test and performed well in all the sessions and i have been constantly updating my profile for last three Hell i even got a degree in that duration and i haven’t yet receive a single call from your company. is scored more then 90% in English, Logical Ability, Quantitative Ability and 97% in computer programming and published two research papers and have knowledge of more then 10 different programming language still no Job offer even when i was in your toppers club. The whole Amcat is beginning to look like a scam on me. So yeah can you justify that

  2. Dear Rohit,

    Well, AMCAT isn’t an absolute guarantee to jobs, but rather a gateway to them. It is a platform which helps you connect with the companies. Candidate scores matter, but after the test, HRs at different companies shortlist candidates from our database, on the basis of their requirements. The interview round matters too.

    I would ask you to be patient and at the same time, keep applying to the latest job opportunities present on our website.

  3. People @AMCAT don’t give any attention to the registered students it seems.
    They are only there to get there salary and trap new unemployed candidates in their network grid through fake promises.

    Seriously cursing you.
    You ate my money

  4. Well, AMCAT is just a platform to help you connect with companies, it doesn’t promise you jobs. We would request you to be patient and keep applying to the new opportunities listed on our jobs section.

  5. How can I get my amcat id ? I wasn’t told by anyone during the exam that we will have to keep this id with us and it was my first attempt so I was not aware of it, although I wrote it down on a rough sheet of paper and that sheet was collected after the exam. Now can u please tell me from where I can get my amcat id?

  6. Try logging in to your AMCAT account on the website – as you have already given the test, the details should appear on your AMCAT score page.

  7. I have given my amcat exam on 22 November 2017 and results are out. But the results are not being displayed in amcat app. When I apply to jobs in dashboard it is asking me to schedule amcat and that I can’t apply to jobs if I haven’t written amcat. But I have already given amcat test. Please solve the problem.

  8. Hi Ravi,

    Better communication skills are proving to be an essential requirement for most jobs these days. Improving your grasp of English can definitely make the difference in your job chances – both with the AMCAT exam and in general.
    REMEMBER – A great proficiency in English ≠ communication skills, though English is the language of communication for most organisations in India.

  9. i took up amcat on dec3 i got my scores as well.i have scored the below mentioned percentiles in each modules . do i have any chances of getting into good mncs like cognizant accenture etc..

  10. Hi Pooja,

    I would request you to keep calm – as it often takes two to three weeks for companies to begin shortlisting and calling you for interviews.
