AMCAT Scoring Formulae

For AMCAT Questions if you take lesser time than designated for a question in AMCAT Test Papers for e.g. if there are 16 question in quants and total time is 18 mins.

Thus, the total time for one question = 67 seconds.

  • If for quants any question is solved 10 seconds before i.e 57 seconds you get +15 points.
  • Similarly, if it is solved after 77 seconds – 5 points.

Every year about 6 Lakhs people give AMCAT to look for their first job.

Ques. Which are compulsory sections in AMCAT for CS student if I am just giving Off campus AMCAT for calls from companies?

Ans. English, Logical and Quants are compulsory and post that it gives you a pop up if you want to attend computer programming too, which you can accept or decline based on if you want IT companies to show interest in your, post this section one more pop up will come if you want to attend your domain test like CS, Civil, EEE etc. 

Also, some companies like Deloitte shortlists on on the score of 3 compulsory section however, companies like CTS prefer Computer Programming MCQ well scored students too. For example, if you scored well in compulsory section you will get a call from CTS in AMCAT, but in case you didn’t score well in compulsory sections but scored well in computer programming and English, then they will call you for interview.

Well not necessary an interview, they also conduct Coding round for the selected students. So, in case you are shortlisted you will be sent an email saying attend coding round from home, in this test your don’t need to go to any center.
