NIIT Limited announced country’s largest Aptitude Test – the 12th National Industry Targeted Aptitude Test (NITAT) – to enable students and graduates to access their potential and aptitude for careers across multiple sectors. ‘NITAT 2016’, will be simultaneously conducted by NIIT, in over 150 cities nationwide, on February 13, 2016.
Graduates as well as undergraduates of all streams can apply for this test. Students can learn about the benefits of appearing in the 12th NITAT and can register online by logging on to http://www.niitcloudcampus.com/nitat2016/ or by visiting the nearest NIIT centre. Over the past 10 years, NITAT has reached out to more than one million students with new-age career options.
NITAT aims to assess skills of students for multiple career domains. The test has been designed as an objective test of reasoning, comprehension, data interpretation skills and behavioural traits. Every student will receive a personalised score card that will give his/her Aptitude Ranking (concentric graphical form) on National and Zonal basis. NIIT will also award up to 25 per cent scholarship to the meritorious students.
Flagging off NITAT 2016 nationally, Shivan Bhargava, Group President, Skills and Careers Group, NIIT Ltd said, “We commenced NITAT 11 years ago with an aim to recognise skilled manpower to meet the demands of the IT industry. Today, NITAT has evolved from being just an IT aptitude test to the one that assesses student’s career readiness quotient across multiple domains like IT, Banking and Finance. We exhort students and graduate to come forward and take the test and assess their capabilities for future. National Industry Targeted Aptitude Test is beneficial for both students seeking to identify their aptitude and the industry which is in the lookout for right talent.”
NIIT’s pioneering initiative NITAT was introduced in 2004 to enable graduates and students pursuing their studies in engineering, arts, commerce and science streams to gauge their aptitude for a career in the IT sector, identify skills further required, if any, and thus systematically charter their career into the IT industry. The test is designed scientifically to assess students and provide a relative ranking system, which helps them to identify their position amongst all test takers.
