Exam pattern of NASSCOM's NAC-Tech Test
This blog post is aimed at giving you the info on the test pattern of PART-B (Optional Paper) of the test.
Optional Test is domain-specific: It means, it tests your knowledge on the specific branch of engineering in which you have specialized in and you want to get employment. For example, if you are studying Civil Engineering and you aspire to work in construction industry, than naturally you should opt for “Civil Engineering” in your “Optional Paper" of NAC-Tech test. (Yes, mind it – scores in NAC-Tech test would also be used by non-IT industries in the future days to evaluate a candidate’s employability).
But what happens if you are studying Civil Engineering and you aspire to work in the IT industries? In the Optional paper of NAC-Tech should you opt for “Civil Engineering” or “IT Concepts Test”? Naturally the later. Yes, IT Concepts Test helps a non-IT engineering student to find employment in IT industries.
With above, lets go to find what is the test pattern of the Optional NAC-Tech test domain-wise.
