If you’re worried about your performance on skill assessments or aptitude tests during a campus placement exercise, then you’re not being irrational. The tests, especially those given by companies hiring for core engineering jobs, check on actual inclination towards the traits they’re looking for. And bring down aspirants those with an actual inclination for the job.
Don’t believe us? Rustom Taporewala, Director, Enterprise Quality at EQ Technologies (and known to be a tough to impress recruiter in all engineering campuses) said the same thing at the National Employability Conclave in Pune last month – candidly admitting that aptitude tests were here to stay as “…there are so many candidates that we are forced to filter.”
In this edition of ‘Cracking the AMCAT‘ series, we explore some of the AMCAT modules which students from core engineering backgrounds end up facing.
Giving the AMCAT Test:
The AMCAT Test is a skill assessment, where a candidate is assessed in three compulsory sections and domain-based sections. While we have explored the three compulsory sections earlier (English Language, Logical Reasoning and Quantitative Ability), this segment focuses on the domain segment that engineering students from different core fields would likely receive.
Do remember that the suggestions are not absolute; they are dependant on your course and may change if you’re giving the AMCAT Test for a specific company’s walk-in.
Common AMCAT Test Modules for Core Engineers:
Core Engineering here is a reference to the jobs and opportunities that a student receives during or immediately after their graduation from core engineering companies. This is a suggested thread which normally applies to students who take the AMCAT Test.
