TCS PAPER ON 8th FEBRUARY 2008

Hi! I`m venus from Patiala ( Punjab ), doing Electronics n Comm. Engg .. a 3rd year student from Shaheed Udham Singh College of Engg & Tech., Tangori, Mohali... First of all I want to thank freshersworld.com for providing such a platform to find detailed versions of test papers n interview experiences dat one can actually (almost) predict what its all goin to be like..

The following is a preview of how it all worked out for me!!
THE WRITTEN (ONLINE) TEST:
No sectional cut off
No negative marking
3 sections : verbal (20 mins) , aptitude (40 mins) , critical (20 mins)
If u don`t clear the apti, critical reasoning section doesn`t open.. so u NEED to clear this section for sure!!
U can do to & fro in the same section.. but once the time is over 4 a particular section, u will not be able to even view the previous section`s questions.. so, my advice wud be that u should keep attempting the questions as they come (as there`s no ve marking) & just keep noting down the guessed questions` numbers & if u get free time in the end, then come back to those & try to solve them..
Dont forget to submit each question after attempting.
Each question appears one by one in apti section.

VERBAL SECTION (20 mins)
10 synonyms, 10 antonyms.. all from GRE BARRONS 12th edition
(Download this book from online..)
Just do the exercises given at the back only..
Some ppl try to mug up d various comprehension passages of GRE barons.. but I cud solve it then n there..
just brush up on ur reading speed, n I guess it`ll be a cake walk..

APTITUDE SECTION (40 mins)
There wasn`t a SINGLE question that was not repeated.. (I wud recommend d paper posted by `anuj gupta` on dis site itself 4 referring 2 d various solved numericals dat r generally asked..)
There r around 38 questions dat u have 2 do in 40 mins.. but trust me, if u`ve done d previous question papers, u`ll even have extra time left 4 reviewing n revising also..
Data interpretation question was asked too, but it as also easy..

CRITICAL REASONING (20 mins)
Only if u clear d aptitude section, will dis section open.. so, u`ll knw dat if u`ve been scoring ok enough, critical reasoning section will appear.. just do d ones given in barrons model test papers.. n u`ll have confidence.. though d names will be changed, so jus don`t mug it up..
though, in my case, there were 3 passages with 4 questions each & i`d done most of d barons critical stuff.. but only 1 passage came from barrons n rest 2, I had 2 solve then & there.. so, keep ur cool even if u get a completely new reasoning passage..)

THE INTERVIEWS:
There were in total 3 interviews.. a technical, an HR n an MR.. (I knw, sounds too many.. rite?)
But, believe me, if u`re done with d tech, u`re 95% there..

TECHNICAL INTERVIEW
There were 2 interviewees n I greeted them with a smile..
Well, it started quite vaguely.. I introduced myself, n told abt poetry as one of my interests.. (I do write poems.. n don`t ever try 2 cheat abt ur interests atleast..)
He asked me 2 recite a poem n also warned me dat it shudn`t be on net..
But, because I do write, I was confident abt my originality n they loved d poem..
A ew questions abt my av subject, c++ (told me to write a program of Fibonacci series), more ECE subject based questions.. Then, he went down to my achievements, my strengths n weaknesses.. I couldn`t believe that this was my tech interview goin on with those questions.. anyways, when I finished of with it, I knew that Id left a mark..

HR & MR INTERVIEWS
I certainly blieve that once u r done with d tech, u r 95% there & that really boosted up my confidence to grab the opportunity comin my way.. to get placed in TCS & simply go in there with the same drive.. give ur best shot.. n ya, DONT LOOK NERVOUS AT ALL, EVEN IF U R.. otherwise theyll pull ur leg at each moment..
Well, HR & MR r mere formalities.. so, jus be in ur own self, calm & composed but at the same time energetic enough to interest them..

N finally, Ive been dying to write this.. SEE U IN TCS!!
