Student Exam Experience

TCS iON Qualifier – Common Corporate Qualifier Test (CCQT) has helped boost my confidence while listing my profile with multiple corporates. In fact, based on my score.

I have received interview calls from various corporates, to name a few – JSW Steel and TATA Group companies. Unlike other tests that just offer a certificate for qualification, TCS iON has also conducted webinars that provided guidance to ace my interviews.

I have received unconditional support from TCS iON in my career progress and my entire experience of the pre and post-tests has been great. I can confidently say that qualifying in a Pan India assessment has helped me gain a new outlook towards life. I strongly recommend this Pan India assessment to all final year candidates.
