Background: To correlate the obstetrics outcomes in term pregnancies by admission cardiotocography (CTG) testing. Methods: A total of 200 consecutive low risk obstetric patients meeting the inclusion criteria were subjected to admission CTG testing in this descriptive observational study. The CTG tracing was categorized based on updated FIGO criteria (2015). Specific obstetrics outcome measures were studied and correlated with the admission CTG testing. Result: Incidence of normal trace was 71%, suspicious 21% and pathological 16%. Out of 200 cases 133 (66.50%) had vaginal delivery, 48 (24%) had LSCS and 19(9.50%) had instrumental delivery. There was increased incidence of operative delivery in suspicious and pathological tracings. Conclusion: The result of admission cardiotocography testing could be used to identify patients who requires early interventions to prevent adverse neonatal outcome
