Participation in Pilot Study Launched by National Testing Agency National Aptitude Test – Ability Profiler

Dear students,

National Testing Agency (NTA) has been established as a premier, specialist, autonomous and self-sustained testing organization to conduct entrance examinations for admission/fellowship in higher educational institutions. The agency is committed to the cause of providing a platform to the students to assess their aptitude and ability in a more scientific and transparent manner. The agency is engaged in conducting exploratory research to map abilities of Indian learners across various age groups between 19 and 25 years.  

 NTA has developed a comprehensive tool with nine domains which consist of Generic Skills, Specific Abilities and Multiple-Choice Items for students of different Age Clusters ,  Level 3 (19 – 21 Year) and  Level 4 (22 – 25 Year).
The test is to help know the capabilities (special abilities) of an individual and not to level or find their weaknesses.  The test will be conducted in the third week of October.
