Though the university has already decided to conduct entrance exams to ensure that the quality is not hampered, recruiters also rely on several factors apart from academic achievements.

While some companies are opting to conduct written test to check the eligibility of the candidates, some are testing the analytical skills of the candidates and other achievements of the candidates.

“Academic qualification is just one part of the recruitment process. Most of the companies keep minimum qualification as the basic eligibility criteria. They consider many other aspects of the candidates, especially add ons to their resume,” DAVV’s head of centralized placement cell, Dr Govind Maheshwari told TOI.

Maheshwari, who has been handling placements for almost a decade and a half, said the high percentage due to the open book exam will be a challenge for students who are average and have secured high percentages as the interviewer will consider them to be of high potential.

Some firms are even selecting video resumes of candidates to test basic traits, making it easier for the recruiter to make a more informed decision about how to further engage with the candidate.

HR recruiter Pragati Barve told TOI, “Academic aptitude just differentiates the candidates, we also test logical abilities and presence of mind.”
