TCS PAPER ON
16th MARCH AT INDORE
TCS came to our college on 16th march with 3.15 lacs package and by the
grace of God I m placed in TCS. Let me share my experiences with u. First of
all guys, TCS is the company in which u can get thru easily, what u need is
just a little hard work and lots of confidence.
First occurs the written test, which is an online test, comprising three
1) Verbal(30 mins): This section contain 10
Antonyms, 10 Synonym questions and 2 Reading Comprehensions in which u have
to fill the blanks and complete the passage with the appropriate options.
Don't prepare anything for this section because u will be unfamilier of 90%
of the antonyms ansd synonyms. Passage will also be new, just do it, it will
There will not be any negative marking and also no sectional cut-off. I
haven't prepared anything about this section.
2) Aptitude (Quantitative): This is the most
easiest section. Just do the previous years question paper as much as u can
for this section. Remember one thing, don't try to learn the answers because
they usually change the digits. 38 questions will come from this section and
40 mins will be given to solve them.
3) Logical Reasoning : This section seems to be
very easy because all the questions come from GRE Barron's 12th edition 5
model test papers and LR practice exercises. But my suggestion is, learn the
Barron's LR thoroughly but be aware of the method of solving LR questions,
because there may come questions that may not belong to Barron's, as
happened with me.
There will be three LR questions each having 4 sub-questions, so there will
be 12 questions from this section. Remember, this is the most important
section, if u are unable to do it u will not get thru with written.
Now comes the
1) Technical Interview: This is the rejection
round. But don't get afraid...u can get thru easily if u are confident. Just
do C and C++ thats it, prepare one subject of your stream too, for eg: CS
students can prepare DBMS or OS and EC students Data Comm etc. Remember,
write only those subjects in ur resume in which u can confidently speak,
otherwise it will create a big trouble for u. I have written Basics of C
and C++ only in my resume. However I have studied OS too as I am a Computer
Science student. I was asked C++ questions only. They had asked me all the
OOPS concepts and asked me to relate it to the real world objects. I have
done it successfully.
2) Then comes HR round: This round
comprises of general questions only like:
Tell me about ur family and ur education?
Strengths and weaknesses
Why should we hire you?
Where do you want to see yourself after 5 years?...and all that
Remember, answer the quetions confidently because they will create questions
from your answers only. For eg: If u say that after 5 yrs I wanna see myself
as project manager, then they may ask u about the work being done by a
project manager. So be aware of your answers.
We had faced Managerial Interview too, in which they asked puzzles (just
want to see our approach to p'blems), this interview happens rarely so don't
Thats all my frenzz...
There were 245 people seated in the campus.
139 cleared the written the test.
85 cleared technical and 68 cleared HR
And among 68 people, i was the one.
KEY TO SUCCESS: Be cool and calm,
be confident (even if u are not knowing the answer, say i don't know
confidently, they just want to see your confidence) and don't get
nervous...not even for a single moment. I m sure u will get thru.
ALL THE BEST
We will meet at TCS.
