Competitive Entrance and Job Recruitment Tests are here to stay. Know about these including techniques and onsite mock tests

Entry level tests for specialized recruitment and entry to colleges / institutes of higher learning in India and overseas are routinely being administered to students and job aspirants to assess the exact job fit and aptitude adequacy for admission to these institutions. Some of these tests are subject-based while others are aptitude-based. Also in such tests some require essay-type responses and the rest objective-type answers.
