Online aptitude and career placement resources like IndiaBIX are rapidly becoming a critical tool for graduating students preparing to enter the job market.
The job market is competitive, and graduates are under pressure to bring additional skills, education and experience if they want the best jobs with the most highly respected companies.
Companies need to find the right employee before they invest in a new hire. They want to know employees have put in the time to acquire the right mix of skills and expertise.
Schools also know how competitive and cut throat the job market can be. Even as they’re feeling pressure to graduate only the best and brightest students, they can only do so much. Preparing every student for every possible placement question or interview situation is impossible.
Aptitude tests, competitive exams, entrance tests, and online examinations are difficult, but the career placement tests for the best companies and multinational corporations (MNCs) are even more difficult. Students that hope to succeed in the modern job market need an edge. They need preparation beyond schooling and classes. That’s where online resources such as IndiaBIX, a crowdsourced online tool for career placement, can help.
Companies are constantly adjusting their mix of questions for career placement tests. Company success depends on finding the right new hires. Online career placement resources like IndiaBIX can help even the odds for prospective employees by supplementing schooling with resources focused on career placement. They offer an edge before the interview and testing even begins.
We’ll take a close look at IndiaBIX. We’ll review what makes the site unique and see how it stacks up to other online resources for campus placement tests.

There aren’t online tests in this section, so the section works best as a refresher before an interview or test, rather than a study guide.

Questions cover not only topics in the career placement exam, but also general topics covering different exams such as the IBPS recruitment exam, MPSC (Maharashtra Public Service Commission), and the BARC exam. Some users even ask for general tips or suggestions on preparing for the exam or getting good sleep before testing.
Questions are categorized by subject or topic, but the topics don’t line up exactly with the topics in the sections. This can lead to gaps when doing research. Not all questions are answered, and some answers can lead to more frustration than help.
Even so, this is a great way to get targeted help on difficult questions, with many of the answers going through the steps used to solve or answer the questions. Some questions that may not have an obvious answer, such as a theoretical or moral question, will have multiple answers so you can select the best approach for your interview or career placement exam.
Pricing for A2 Hosting
As of now, there is no cost for using IndiaBIX, other than the online ads on the site.
Much of the information on the site is crowdsourced, with users reviewing the questions and reporting problems as they find them. Users can also add their own questions and experiences with the career placement assessments, exams and interviews. It keeps the cost low (or no cost at all) for use of the site and provides free and current updates to the information.
It does mean the site is dependent on users and user interaction, but as of now, there are many users on IndiaBIX. New questions are being added to the Discussion Forum almost daily.
But, as with any user-generated site, it does mean the information can be faulty or wrong. It may not be as current or accurate as other sites that work closely with the companies, schools or agencies to review and critique information.
Public Perception of A2 Hosting
Most users rate IndiaBIX extremely well.
Users consider IndiaBIX an excellent resource for exam preparation. The breakdown of subjects and topics is fantastic for quickly locating the information you need. Most report the information on IndiaBIX is accurate. Many also report the site is an excellent resource for competitive government examinations.
User friendliness is another area that is strong in user reviews. It’s easy to focus on the areas you need with IndiaBIX, rather than slogging through content and tests that aren’t relevant. Users like that the information comes from people who have taken the exam, rather than testing companies who hope you will purchase additional services.
Many report IndiaBIX is an excellent way to introduce yourself to the Competitive Examinations. You can prepare and see how ready you are before the exams. When needed, you can quickly review topics.
How IndiaBIX Compares to the Market
Unlike other sites such as AMCAT and eLitmus, IndiaBIX doesn’t include a program to accompany the test and there is no fee. The content and information are almost completely user generated.
This can be both a strength and weakness for IndiaBIX. Users need to be aware the data is only as good as the people loading it on the site. Over time, some of the questions will age, and user updates may not be as timely, fast or current as students might like.
Sometimes, you can wait a long time for a user to answer a question on the forum. The latest information on the career placement exams and assessments may not be immediately uploaded on the site.
The raw, crowdfunded information on IndiaBIX can also be a strength. AMCAT is often seen as too easy, with information and programs designed only for the AMCAT test leaving the overall career preparation lacking. This leaves students struggling when it comes to the interview or company tests outside of the friendly confines of AMCAT. IndiaBIX provides information straight from the interviews, giving students a more complete preview of the career placement process.
What We Think of IndiaBIX
IndiaBIX is a great resource for competitive exam preparation. We love the explanations offered for every answer. It’s an excellent way to not only see if you are correct, but also to work through and learn the questions you may not fully understand. You can review the questions on the site to see where you may have gaps, and then work through answers to better prepare. With the market in India improving, the extra work will help your job outlook.
It’s also a very strong tool for learning at your own pace. No matter how well designed a program may be, there will be questions and sections you don’t need. This can lead to wasted time or even mental confusion before the test.
With IndiaBIX, you can learn at your own pace, and browse through the topics and sections to find exactly the questions and answers you need. By breaking everything down into topics, sections, and questions – you can find exactly what you need every time.
Because it is crowdsourced and not designed around a program, it works best as a supplement to other tools like eLitmus. It is, by far, one of the best supplements out there.
