Have questions related to the ESAT schedule or facing technical issue?

Click here to check the live noticeboard and get:

How do I take the test?

The test is 100% remote or online. Login to your embark dashboard. You will require a good internet connection and a desktop or laptop.

Am I required to travel to some centers?

No

Can I take the test from an international location?

Yes, you can take the test from anywhere in the world as long as you have a good internet connection and desktop/laptop.

Will my time be saved if I had to resume the test again e.g. due to a power-cut?

Unfortunately, no. Once the test is started, you need to finish it in one go. Also, as a lot of students are taking the test simultaneously, it will be unfair to give additional time to some.

Can I start the test a little late on the same day?

No. You need to start the test at the designated time.

Can I take the test multiple times instead of Oct 17?

Unfortunately No. To keep things fair to everyone, it is important that no exceptions are made to select individuals. Also, there are second-round assessments as well. So because of those constraints, it is not possible to conduct the test on multiple slots even if we wish to.

Can I attempt the test from a mobile device?

Unfortunately No. The test can NOT be attempted from the mobile device. The mobile devices cause distraction e.g. calls, makes it difficult to read the text, and do not support the mechanisms for ensuring the integrity of the test. We highly recommend you arrange for a desktop or laptop device from your friends, seniors, or relatives for the purpose of appearing in the ESAT.

Can I use calculators in the test?

Yes, you are free to use calculators.

What are the dates for each round?

Dates will be communicated soon. Sign up to get updates.

Who can register for Embark?

Students enrolled in their final year (graduating in 2023) or pre-final year (graduating in 2024) in any undergraduate or postgraduate program.

Can I register if I have graduated from college in 2021 or earlier?

Yes, you can register for Embark. But if you are open to an internship starting 2022, and are not prioritising getting a full-time job at the earliest, you are welcome to register for Embark.

Can I register if I will be graduating in 2025 or later?

Yes, you can register to experience the Selection Round 1 test. But you will not be selected in the final list. This internship is not for you. Third-year students enrolled in dual degree programs (five-year) are the only exemption. They can register and can make it to the selection list based on performance.

Can I register if name of my degree OR my program is not listed above?

Yes, as long as you are enrolled in the final year or pre-final year of an undergraduate or postgraduate program, you can participate in this.

Can I register for Embark with an international (non-Indian) mobile number?

Currently you wont be able to register for the program using international mobile numbers. We are solving this problem. Till then you may sign up with an Indian number. We will keep you posted if things change.

Can I appear in the internship or placement process of my college if I am selected in Upraised Embark Program

Yes. Our goal is to offer you more opportunities and not restrict you. Please consider the Upraised Embark Program as an off campus opportunity that is not in any conflict with your placement process. However, once you are selected, we inform your placement cells about the selection. It is up to the placement cells to decide if they would like to allow you to sit for more opportunities or not.

Will I be selected in the Upraised Embark Program if I have already received an offer from college?

Yes. We assume that if you are appearing in our process after receiving an offer, it means you are interested in the opportunities that Upraised is offering. Hence, we do not put any restrictions. However, if you already have an offer then we encourage you to reflect about your interest and participate only if you are not happy with your current offer.

Also, we strongly advise you to check placement policies of your institute & comply with those. In case of any conflicts, the final decision will be governed by your institute policies.

I had appeared for Embark 2021, can I appear again?

Yes Absolutely. You can appear again. You don't need to create another account. You can log in from the existing credentials. You'll receive the updates over email.

Where can I generate Exam Pass?

Exam Pass can be generated from ESAT Tab → Exam Pass generation

What do I need to complete the registration process?

You will be required to provide very basic information such as you college name, degree name, your graduation year and a few details around your past education.

When does registration end?

Registration ends on Oct 14, 2021. The sooner you register, the earlier you start receiving all the information.

What should I enter in 12th Standard score in registration if I have done Diploma post 10th standard?

Enter your Diploma final year score.

What should I do if I am facing a technical issue in registration?

We'd certainly do not want you to face such an experience. We'd help you resolve it ASAP. Just write to us at care.embark@upraised.co and describe the challenge you are facing. Also, please include the device name, model, OS version, and screenshots with the email.

Can I edit my application details after Exam Pass generation?

No. Once the Exam pass is generated you can not edit application details.

I don't have 10th marksheet for Exam Pass generation

You can upload 12th or Diploma marksheet if you don't have 10th marksheet.

How will candidates be selected for the Embark Program?

There are 3 rounds of selection tests. After each round, all the participants will receive a detailed skills report and selected candidates will move to the next round.

The first round is common for all the career tracks. After round 1, based on your performance you will be given a chance to pick career tracks. You can opt for multiple career tracks. More details will be shared with you upon qualifying for round 1.

Immediate next steps for you: Register to participate in the first round Selection Test.

How do I prepare for the Embark selection process?

It is a hands-on thinking test and hence no preparation is required. However, you can practice with a mock ESAT (Embark Skills Assessment Test) on the Embark dashboard to get familiarised with the test interface and the question types. Additionally, you can join our Telegram group for resources that will be helpful in Round 1. Telegram link: https://go.upraised.co/telegram

Will my college CGPA have a weightage?

No. Only your performance in the selection process would matter.

Why do we ask for information around your education during registration?

For identity verification purposes. If you fail to produce documents that verifies the information you have provided, then you will not be selected for the program. It does not carry any weight for the final selection.

It primarily depends upon the performance of candidates in the selection process. We have secured more than 500 opportunities across career tracks. If we find talented candidates, we will select them. As a base case, we’re expecting to select at least 300 candidates across all the five tracks.

How do you select candidates for each track?

Merit list for each track is created separately. You can get shortlisted for multiple tracks & appear in their selection process but eventually before the admission into the Embark Program, you will be required to select one career track.

Is there any registration fee for the program?

ZERO fees. The program is free for students. For upskilling, we have collaborated with industry leaders who share our vision of creating opportunities for you. And, we also charge companies after they make a full-time job offer to you.
