The Aptitude Testing Programme aims at development and use of psychological tests for Vocational Guidance and Vocational Selection.

        Aptitude Tests were introduced in the sixties to promote the use of objective procedures for Vocational Selection.

        The present efforts of DGE&T are focussed on strengthening the psychological testing capabilities in tune with the requirements of the target groups. The efforts are likely to provide the necessary impetus to the Vocational Selection and Vocational Guidance Services provided to the job-seekers at the Employment Exchanges, the UEIGBx, the Coaching-cum-Guidance Centres for SCs/STs and at the pre-recruitment training programmes organised particularly for the disabled and the socially disadvantaged.
