Over past 11 years, more than 1 million aspirants have been benefited by the test.
NITAT helps the students and graduates to access their potential and aptitude for careers across multiple sectors. The test has been designed as an objective test of reasoning, comprehension, data interpretation skills and behavioural traits. Every student is entitled to receive a personalised scorecard that will give his/her Aptitude Ranking (concentric graphical form) on National and Zonal basis.
Shivan Bhargava, Group President, Skills and Careers Group, NIIT Ltd, said, “The response that NITAT has received from the students across India is unprecedented. We commenced NITAT 11 years ago with an aim to recognise skilled workforce 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 are confident that NITAT will continue to help students access their skills for multiple career domains.”
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. Today the test has evolved as a powerful tool that assesses student’s aptitude across multiple domains, including IT, Banking and Finance. 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.
