3MTT List of Shortlisted Candidates (How to Check If you’re Shortlisted)

3MTT List of shortlisted Candidates – How to check if you’re successful and among the NITDA list of shortlisted candidates

3MTT has released a comprehensive list of successful candidates for the first batch of the 3MTT program.

Shortlisted candidates can check this list to see if they’re shortlisted or not.

Before we go ahead to explore the list, you should know that this is just the first batch of the training. If you do not find your name on the list, nothing to worry about.


For this first batch, only 30,000 candidates are shortlisted. Why so?

Here’s why:

NITDA is employing a strategy called 1-10-100 in training candidates. What this means is that, the first batch will train 1% of candidates, then they will go ahead to train 10% of the candidates. And then finally they will train 100% of candidates. Hence, 1-10-100.

Since the target number of candidates to train is 3 million, 1% of 3 million is 30,000. so this first batch will train only 30,000 candidates.

For the next batch, 3MTT will shortlist 10%, which will amount to three hundred thousand candidates (300, 000). If you’re not on this batch, hopefully, you’ll be on the next.

Even so, if you’re not on the next batch, be rest assured you’ll be on the third batch where NITDA will deploy heavy resources to train the remaining candidates.

3MTT Shortlisted Candidates Status Assessment

The Nitda 3MTT Dashboard Will Display Your Only Shortlist Status As Follows:

1). Shortlisted: You have been chosen to move on to the next round of the 3MMT selection process if the message “Shortlisted” appears on your dashboard.

Please take note that you could be required to take a Computer Based Test (CBT) at a designated date. You will be informed of this by email or through your dashboard, depending on how you registered.

2). Under Review: If “Under Review” appears on your dashboard, it indicates that management is reviewing the application you successfully submitted. After the review, it will finally read “Shortlisted” or “Not Selected.”

3). “Not Selected”: If “Not Selected” appears on your 3mtt dashboard, it indicates that your application was rejected for a variety of reasons, such as failing to satisfy the requirements or the fact that all of the available spots were taken. You might be automatically enrolled in the program’s next round, or you might need to reapply when registration for the following batch starts.
