Employers in Nigeria are taking new steps into recruitment by testing candidates before they are shortlisted for interviews.

What is AMCAT

AMCAT (Aspiring Minds’ Computer Adaptive Test) is a computer adaptive test which measures job applicants on critical areas like communication skills, logical reasoning, quantitative skills and job specific domain skills thus helping recruiters identify the suitability of a candidate. AMCAT possesses state of art assessment tools to evaluate talent across 100s of job roles – accurately, reliably and with exemplary validity!

Did You Know That…

  • more than 40% of interview time is spent on candidates who may have the resume but not the required skills?
  • 30% of annual salaries are spent on bad hires?
  • over 30% of skilled candidates get missed in typical recruitment processes?

Hiring is subjective, inconsistent, and predicting future performance almost impossible. And unfortunately, recruiters and HR personnel just can’t evaluate every applicant and end up missing the ‘right’ ones! Moreso, Interviews are time consuming, expensive and awfully hard to schedule.

That’s why AMCAT is here, different and tailored to help you hire the right talent


While most aptitude tests only measure a test taker’s verbal comprehension and reasoning abilities, the AMCAT additionally evaluates personality traits and domain skills, thus becoming an ideal test to match jobs to candidates.
AMCAT also helps match candidates with suitable jobs based on their performance on the test.
AMCAT’s comprehensive feedback report helps you identify strong and weak areas of a candidate so that you can either decide to hire and work to improve the highlighted areas for a candidate or recommend candidates to specific departments where their strengths are better suited.
