TCS PAPER ON 2nd APRIL 2008
Hi friends, I am Sankalp S Rao from SRI SIDDHARTHA INSTITUTE OF
TECHNOLOGY,TUMKUR. TCS had come for campus recruitment in our campus on
April 2 and 3.The written rounds started at 10:15 am. I was the first to
register for TCS in our col. I got my unique loginid and password.The
written section consisted of 3 sections with a total duration of 90 min.
The written consists of 3 sections and is an online test of 90 min. It
is conducted with Qubex (Quantitative Banking Examination ) Software
developed by CMC.You have to open the internet explorer and the QUBEX
SOFTWARE window opens. It is just like rediffmail pop up window. So, all
students get different set of question papers.On the right side of the
Window you have the timer and and question number with the link. The
questions will appear in 3 different colours depicting the following
Red -- questions not answered.
Yellow- questions attempted but not answered.
Green -- questions answered.
1) Verbal (10 synonyms,10 antonyms ,1 sentence completion paragraph with
6 blanks and 1 reading comprehension with 6 questions) --- 32 questions,
2) Aptitude section (32 questions ,40 min)
3) Critical Reasoning questions.(3 Problems with 4 questions on each ie
12 marks ) -- 12 questions,30 min
The verbal consisted of 10 synonyms,10 antonyms ,1 sentence completion
paragraph with 6 blanks and 1 reading comprehension with questions. Five
options will be there for each question. You have to mark the correct
one.Some of the words i got were from previous papers and some were new.
The reading comprehension was copy paste from GRE BARRONS 12th
edition.Be very quick in this section as the reading comprehension and
sentence completion are very lengthy. Guys and Gals please mark all the
answers as there is no negative marking.If you dont know the answer mark
all B's or all A's or all C's for the options. it gives you more
probablity of passing the written..
This section consisted of questions from previous papers with slight
modification of data.Practice bar graph, pie charts and Venn diagram.
This section consisted of 3 Problems with 4 questions each.This section
is copy paste from GRE BARRON 12TH EDITION.ALL THE 3 PROBLEMS I GOT WERE
COPY PASTE FROM BARRONS.I COULD SOLVE THE 3 PROBLEMS IN 4 MIN. I CHECKED
THE 3 PROBLEMS 4 TIMES IN THE REMAINING TIME.So friends practice barrons
12th edition problems.if you dont get answers memorise them.the
questions and options appeared in the same to same order...
The results were announced at 7 PM .and we were given TCS RECRUITMENT
forms. The next day we had technical round mr and hr round..The
technical questions were
1) diff between 85 and 86?
2) What is an OS?
3) Types of OS? Real time, Multi tasking ,Multiuser,etc
4) What is normalization?
5) What are primary , foreign and reference keys?
6) Can primary foreign and reference keys be given NULL value? primary
key null value cannot be given.
7) What is polymorphism?
8) Types of polmorphism? run time and compile time polymorphism
The hr was not conducted due to shortage of panel and time constraints.
the mr was easy with only 3 questions
1) Tell me about yourself?
2) Where do u see urself in 5 years?
3) Why TCS?
The hr round was cancelled and a group discussion round was
arranged.Friends TCS does not have GD. But they conducted gd because of
shortage of time.so plz be prepared for that. Just speak something.
Finally the results were announced at 1030 at night. 85 people got
through and ofcourse I got into my dream company TCS..We got the initial
selection process letter from TCS. I am now a TCS associate and proudly
say " EXPERIENCE CERTAINTY".
