Campus Placement has become the norm countrywide. Often, a college is valued on the basis of the campus placements it can facilitate, irrespective of the discipline of academia. Engineering colleges are especially more prominent in this regard, but the concept is not limited to only that stream today, with several management, commerce, architecture, design, and other disciplines  offering the same infrastructure for a fresh graduate. One can say that the purpose of doing so is to identify the talent that would fit in a particular organisation before they graduate from their degree, be it graduation or post graduation. The process aims to optimise the time required for a student to start in a particular industry of choice. During the education, several aspects like projects, group assignments, curricular activities, etc. are geared so that a student can develop the soft skills required to work in a structured organisation and take the right step in the corporate world.

Placement training then becomes an essential part of any college placement as students get a chance to focus on these and several other requirements that would help them bridge the gap between the knowledge they have imbibed during their education and how they can apply that learning in real life situations in their career. Companies who visit the colleges for placements, also follow a series order of events, which may include:

 Pre-placement Talks
To brief the students about the company and the positions at offer

 Written Test
 To understand the aptitude level of a student

 Group Discussion
To check the group skills and presence of a student

 Technical Interview
To check the academic competency of a candidate

 Formal Interview
To understand the overall motivations and aspirations of a particular candidate

All companies might not follow the order or all the elements described above, but this stands as a good reference point for any campus placement session.


Corporate job openings attract almost 200 resumes on a daily basis out of which, eight to ten get interviewed, and ultimately, only one candidate gets the job offer. From a pool of candidates with the same qualifications and credentials as you, the need to distinguish yourself has become top priority.

Most students today are taking the TCS iON Qualifier Exam, infamously known as the CCQT Exam, to gain visibility among the most sought-after corporate recruiters and get on the radar of top global corporates. To not get left behind, it is essential that you make the most of this opportunity. But that being said, don’t jump into anything before you know what you’re getting into. Read on to find the answers to all your questions about this exam and land a job in the firm of your dreams:


TCS iON Qualifier is a 2-Stage assessment which qualifies candidates on skills required by corporates. The CCQT Exam is used by most corporates today as a corporate yardstick to cater to their hiring needs, and to assess if a candidate has the right knowledge and competence that they are looking for. There are two stages in this exam:

Stage 1 is a proctored LAN based assessment

Stage 2 is a Video based assessment.


This qualification assessment tests your skills and gets you listed in top corporates. Scoring a high score in this exam demonstrates your knowledge and its application in areas that matter to Top MNCs. Acing this exam pre-qualifies you for corporate training as you are marked with the seal of competence in the areas that are acknowledged by corporate bodies.


Any undergraduate who wants to work in top corporate companies are eligible to take the CCQT Exam. While the CCQT Exam is ideal for third year graduates who will potentially sit for campus placements, it is wise that second year undergraduate students take this test right away, as the scores are valid for 2 years and you will know where you stand, your areas of weakness, which will significantly help you improve your score when you take the CCQT Exam again.
