AMCAT (a 2-hour computer adaptive test) gauges the employability of candidates for various industrial sectors and job profiles. After the test, Amcat results are published. a detailed score report card is issued based on the candidate’s performance.

AMCAT Eligibility Report
Based on the scores attained, eligibility report is given which includes:
- Industry the candidate is eligible for (for e.g., BPOs, IT Service Companies, KPO Sector etc)
- The roles the candidate is eligible for (for e.g., customer success role, technical support executive etc)
- Tier of the company eligible for (top-tier or not)
A sample report based on your Amcat results is given below. This how your eligibility will be indicated based on your Amcat test scores.
AMCAT Results – Score Report
AMCAT provides a detailed module-wise score report card. The score is not equal to the number of questions answered correctly. The score is calculated by an advanced statistical engine that takes into consideration
- The difficulty of questions answered
- Guess probability
- Time taken to attempt a question
- Discrimination between questions
The Amcat results score report includes the following fields.
The section of the test attempted
Module name (for e.g., English, Aptitude etc)
Number of Questions attempted
Total number of questions attempted
An integral value.
NA – No/zero attempts.
The score calculated by the advanced statistical engine
An integral value ranging between <> – <>. This is a scaled score
The grade tells where the candidate stands amongst all the candidates who have taken AMCAT
Reported in 3 grades – A, B and C.
A – First 33%
B – Second 33%
C – Last 33%
Percentile amongst all the candidates (belonging to the same degree) Overall Percentile can be NA. NA means the percentile is not calculated for the module.
Percentile value (0% – 100%)
Percentile amongst all the students in the candidate’s college who have taken AMCAT)
Percentile value (0% – 100%)
AMCAT Results – Job Match Summary
Based on the choice of the domain-specific module(s) by the candidate, AMCAT gives a job-match summary. The job match summary provides information on how likely the candidate is to be selected for a specific job profile based on his Amcat results.
The chance of getting selected for a job-profile is specified as follows
AMCAT Results – Module wise Performance Report
AMCAT provides a bird’s eye view of the candidate’s performance in different sections of the module. The performance in each section of a module is classified as
If a module is not colored (in this case module Semiconductors), it means that either the candidate has not attempted a sufficient number of questions or has not taken the module.
AMCAT also takes a step further in analysing a candidate’s performance at the module level and provides guidance on how to improve the score further.
A candidate’s module-wise percentile score is taken into consideration and represented in a meter. This helps candidates understand where they stand amongst others.
Also, few tips and guidance suggestions are given by AMCAT to improve the score.
AMCAT Results – Time Analysis Report
AMCAT Time Analysis section tells the candidate how has he/she spent the allotted time in taking AMCAT. The following graph is given to give the candidate an idea about the speed at which he/she has attempted the questions.
Also, the candidate’s speed is compare with the general population and tells whether the candidate was
- faster (upward facing bar) or
- slower (downward facing bar) or
- normal (no bar) at attempting questions.
In this case, as compared to the general population, the candidate was quite fast in attempting questions in Logical Ability, Computer Programming, Computer Fundamentals and Quantitative Ability(Technical).
AMCAT Results – Suggested Time Schedule Report
Based on the performance of a candidate, AMCAT suggests how much time approximately should the candidate spend on studying a particular section of a module in a week.
The bar graph shows the time a candidate should devote to each topic in a section, while the pie chart suggests how the candidate should divide his/her time across different sections.
AMCAT Job-match Report
This section is very similar to AMCAT Job-Match summary except that it provides additional information on the criteria for job selection.
This helps the candidate get a better understanding on what companies look for and where should the candidate focus on.
AMCAT Selection Comparator
The AMCAT Selection Comparator shows the minimum cut-off for every job profile (marked with lines) in each module and the candidate’s score, which is represented by a dot.
The candidate can compare different job profiles cutoffs with his/her score to get an idea about which profile are the candidate is eligible for.
