According to Higher Education in India: Vision 2030, a report produced by international consultants Ernst and Young for the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, the skills gap in Indian graduates is staggering – 75% of IT graduates are deemed ‘unemployable’, 55% in manufacturing, 55% in healthcare and 50% in banking and insurance.
NITAT aims to access skills of the 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 score card that will give his/her Aptitude Ranking (concentric graphical form) on national and Zonal basis. NIIT will also award 50% scholarship to the meritorious students.
