An employability test was conducted by the Central Placement Cell (CPC) of University of Delhi (DU) on Friday. More than 150 students appeared for this computer-based test. Other than these, more 7,000 students have registered for the test out of which 1,200 are sitting for the examination on Saturday.
In order to launch the employability test, DU has tied up with AMCAT (Aspiring Minds Computer Adaptive Test) to assess the employability of the students. However, the test was formally launched by Dinesh Singh, the vice-chancellor of DU.
The test is open to the students of all the streams of DU. The test will contain the questions on the areas like English comprehension, quantitative ability, logical ability, personality assessment and other domain modules on specific job skills.
As a result, every student will get AMCAT’s seven-stroke employability feedback, that is, a detailed personalized report with scores on their performance on each module - that helps to understand the suitability to a sector and functional area. The tests will be conducted by January end in various venues across North and South campus.
According to the co-Founder and CEO of Aspiring Minds, Himanshu Aggarwal, “The test is a reality check for students to understand their industry readiness and employability. Moreover, it levels the biases in hiring and help recruiters select by merit. We are expecting a good performance by DU students as they are among the brightest students in the City and also Delhi has topped in our previous test on 53,000 engineers across the country. We will declare the results and a detailed report in two days.”
AMCAT's is considered India's largest employability Test. Many reputed MNCs like HCL, Sapient, Ericsson, ITC, SBI Life, Nokia, Keane, and Accor Hotels use Aspiring Minds recruitment solutions. More than 12,000 freshers have been recruited like this.
