AMCAT conducts an exam containing various sections depending upon the kind of companies you want to apply for. Most of the companies pacts with the AMCAT are IT companies and BPO profile companies. AMCAT is a good place for job hunting. If you are not already placed, then there are a lot of other exams like Elitmus, AMCAT, Co Cube etc.
Elitmus has to be taken 100% because they have better companies and better work profile and even the packages are higher than AMCAT. However if you are still not placed, we suggest you to give all the three exams (i.e. AMCAT, Elitmus, Co Cube). If you have done engineering, you should not think of Rs. 1000 more. Because it will land up you to a job.There are a lot of companies who pacts with the AMCAT and recruit the candidates based on his skills.

Score anything higher than 80 percentile will land you a job in company like Accenture or Cognizant but it you scored even 79 percent, they might not recruit you until unless you have a good profile and studied from a good college because 2 to 3 lakhs of candidates gives the AMCAT exam every year. They want to select best out there and test is not so much hard but there is a lot of competition. Even you do a lot of right questions, your percentile may be still less because there are people who prepare for AMCAT for about 2-3 months and then give the AMCAT exam. Atleast a month is very necessary for you to prepare. You can do a lot of things in that a month’s time generally.
