Student Interview

I applied for Accenture off-campus drive through AMCAT. I registered for AMCAT through www.aspiringminds.com. I started preparing for the written test from previous year papers available on PrepInsta and referred some other competitive books. The eligibility criteria for Accenture is 60% throughout the academic career and no current backlogs. Since I met the eligibility criterion I was shortlisted for the written test.

AMCAT Written Paper

AMCAT paper was divided into three sections Verbal Ability, Quantitative Analysis, and Logical Reasoning. The paper had 75 questions which were to be completed in 95 minutes. There was a sectional cut- off for each section.

  • Verbal ABILITY section had 25 questions, and the time limit for this section was 25 minutes. This section was of medium difficulty level with 4 Reading Comprehensions, passages, and Fill in the blanks. The reading comprehensions were quite long, but they were simple as well.

  • In the Quantitative Analysis section, there were 25 questions. The paper was of medium difficulty level. This section had questions related to basic mathematics such as Permutation and Combination, Profit and loss, Geometry and Time and Work.

  • In the Logical Reasoning section, the questions were conceptual. This section was slightly tricky as compared to the other two sections. The questions were moderate to difficult. There were 25 questions and the time limit for this section was of 35 minutes. There were questions on puzzles, charts, graphs, and tables.
