CCQT, or the Common Corporate Qualifier Test, is of late carving a niche for itself. Conducted by TCS iON across all major cities in India, it is a 2-stage assessment for college students to qualify and get their profile shared with 130+ corporates.
Academic excellence is no guarantee for placement
The end goal of any college-going student, who has the ambition to make a name in the corporate sector is to land a job with a top corporate through campus placements. However, academic excellence does not always ensure one ends up in their dream company. A lot of factors can come in the way. For instance, the student’s college might not have a placement cell, or the company he/she may want to work in might not necessarily visit their campus for placements.
In such a situation, what are the options left for the student?
Enhance your chances for placements
Besides the fact that not every company visits every college for campus placements, not all students get offers during placement drives. Ask around, and you will find that securing off-campus employment is no piece of cake. This is why on-campus placement is taken very seriously.
To improve their chances of getting job offers during these placement drives, students need to boost their credentials. This is where CCQT plays a crucial role.
130+ corporates use CCQT to shortlist recruits
From the perspective of a college student, CCQT is the ticket to their dream job and a corporate career. Over 130 top recruiters, including Taj, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Bajaj, RBL Bank, ICICI Lombard, Asian Paints, Bridgestone, Kirloskar, Eureka Forbes, TATA AIG, and Go Air, among others have partnered with TCS iON. This means these corporates will now use CCQT to shortlist new recruits. So, it makes sense for you to take the test!
Preparing for CCQT
CCQT is conducted in 2 stages. Stage 1 is further subdivided into a Mandatory section and an Optional section (on IT). The Mandatory Section involves a 90-minute test of 120 questions and 120 marks.
