Amcat Scoring Scheme

  • AMCAT doesn’t have any negative marking hence it is advised to attempt all the questions.
  • The overall score for each section is scaled to 900. The points per question are based on whether the answer is correct or not and as well as the time taken per question.
  • As the overall AMCAT test is adaptive in nature, mistakes lead to easier questions (and a lower score), while correct answers would lead to tougher ones (and a higher score).

Based on interactions with 1000s of our students we have come up with a table which would help you understand the approximate score and percentile that they would score.

Section

Number of correct answers for 75-80 %ile

Number of correct answers for 90-95%ile

English Ability

9-10

13-15

Quantitative Ability

11-12

14-15

Logical Reasoning

This analysis is not completely accurate. It just gives you an approximate number of questions vs the percentile scored. This analysis is done based on the scores we received for various students.

Which Amcat Module to choose?

This is the most difficult choice you need to make. You need to carefully select domain-specific modules based on your stream. This will help you get call letters from companies related to that field.

We have listed down the recommended modules based on companies eligibility criteria. For example, if you are a civil engineering graduate and you have attempted Electronics and Semiconductor Engineering module. In that case, companies based on electronics & semiconductors mostly look for ECE, EEE, E&I and related branches. So we suggest you choose modules based on our list and it will make your job hunt easier.
