How do companies select candidates through AMCAT?

AMCAT hosts a lot of companies every month, with each having their own criteria and process of selection.

However, the general process is that companies have pre-defined criteria of what they want in a candidate. This criteria usually depends on the profile you are applying for.

Say you are applying for the position of a Sales Manager. Here your language, communication skills, and reasoning skills will be evaluated. That means, the focus will be on how much you scored in English and Logical Reasoning.

Furthermore, the company might even take another test, namely Svar (another offering by Aspiring Minds) to test your communication skills.

The same goes for when you are applying for the job of Software Engineer. Here the focus will be on your programming skills and a further test, called Automata can be conducted to test your coding abilities.

A good score in AMCAT can really open a truckload of opportunities for you. However, the best, yet the scariest thing about AMCAT is that while a good score is no sure shot guarantee of a great job, a bad score doesn’t mean you won’t find any nice job either.

The most important thing to understand here is that all depends on the requirements of the company, as does the salary being offered.


What package to expect after giving the AMCAT exam?

There is no wrong or right answer to this question, as the package varies completely on the company involved and the job role you are applying for.

There are big companies like Affairal that offer a package as high as 24 LPA and that too for fresher candidates. Reliance Jio too is known to offer really high packages.

Then there are job roles like that of Front-end Developer where a package of 11 LPA is no big deal. And, Android Developers can take home a package of 20 LPA.

The point here is that the highest and the lowest package may vary tremendously (24 LPA is not even among the highest packages being offered at the AMCAT jobs portal).

What package you can expect, depends completely on the company you are applying in and the position you are applying for.


The AMCAT exam is the best bet for anyone looking to make it big. Even at this moment, 150+ companies are looking to hire candidates within the next week and over 3 lac interview invites are sent to AMCAT candidates every year.
