AMCAT Exam Pattern

In the AMCAT exam, there are certain modules that are compulsory for everyone like Language and Aptitude Modules, whereas others are optional. During the test, candidates will be given an option to select any two domain-specific modules. It is recommended that the candidates go through the module description and befitting job profiles before they go to take the AMCAT.

The candidate's choice of modules increases your visibility for particular kinds of jobs, for instance, if the candidates take the Programming Module then will be visible to more IT companies whereas taking an HR module will help to find HR profiles.
