Introduction

Campus placements play a major role in shaping up the career goals of students. PCCOE is a pioneer in imparting education and on an average 600 students are enrolled in technical education in all branches and it was a hub for employers to select premium talent. Many prestigious companies like TCS, L&T InfoTech, Capgemini, KPIT, Informatica, Mu Sigma, 3DPLM visited PCCOE during the past few years. Every year, college was improving on their placement numbers, but the thirst for more significantly was not happening in spite of several training activities like below.

Problem

In the year 2014, the percentage of campus recruitment was very low. From 2015 to 2016 the increase in campus placement was 41 percentages. Students undergo a comprehensive CRT training program to get placed. Why there was no improvement in placement performance? What can be done better? Why lots of candidates are getting rejected in the first round of selection i.e. written test, how can we improve the conversion?

Solution

EPracto provided the students with a variety of questions and also conducted student connect program. It educated the students for upcoming company assessments.

The software has all the updated and exact patterns for more than 100+ major companies like TCS, IBM, Tech Mahindra, Capgemini, Accenture etc. which highly benefited the students.

EPracto helped the college to understand the student’s performance by providing them in-depth analytics. Not just individual student’s report but also group wise. The reports highlighted both, the stronger and the weaker areas.

Based on the analytics, the college created their own customized test patterns and assigned it to respective groups. This helped the students to focus more on the areas which they were lacking behind.

Practicing EPracto supplemented their learning which helped them get an opportunity of solving a variety of questions and at the same time gain insights about the concept as well.
