TCS PAPER ON 6th JULY
This is Ramya from Chemical Engineering Department.I want to share with
u my experiences regarding my online test n interview .
Online test consisted of 3 sections
Regarding aptitude previous yrs question papers are sufficient. Refer
Barrons for synonyms,antonyms n if u r lucky enuf may get comprehension
also from Barrons 12th/13th editions.
About critical reasoning which's the most important section to get
selected in the online test,i got entirely from Barrons 12th edition . .
But in some, names were changed so be careful while mugging up d
answers. But in some cases for sections having more than 4 questions
they randomly chose 4 out of dose questions. so for dose sections
mugging up jus d options may end u up in vain.
I had my interview the next day around 11 am which lasted for 45-50
minutes.. My panel consisted of 4 members. The panel members were very
friendly and made me feel very comfortable.
The first thing they asked me whether i had my breakfast. Then asked me
d routine tell me about urself .i answered n meanwhile dey interrupted n
asked me about my family background , my fav director n about d movie i
watched last. Then i was asked some questions from organic chemistry
like what is common salt n its preparation, formula n structure 4
methane . Then i was asked some questions in electronics lik what is
electronics, truth table and asked me draw d truth table for AND gate.
Then they just asked me regarding my areas of interest.
Then they offered me a cup of coffee n asked me about d C programs in my
1st semester. .After dat they gave me one puzzle n asked me solve n
explain dem . . i jus tried n got d solution n explained them. He seemed
to b much satisfied n said its exact. Then asked me to write a program
to find d largest of 3 nos. . I wrote n explained him. Then he asked me
what is preprocessor directive, use of semicolon n getch() in C,use of
Break n Continue statements.
They gave preference to knowing some additional lang like Hindi and
asked me regarding dat as i mentioned about it in my resume. They said
dat ok den u ll b placed in North places lik Amritsar etc . i was a bit
assured wid d kind of their reply. Since i mentioned dat my brother

what he said about TCS.... Then dey asked me whether i had any location
preference ,y switching to IT, my hobbies ...Den finally dey asked any
questions do u ve 4 us.. i asked dem whether any relevance of our
chemical subjects with d IT field v r going to work in. They jus said ya
der's but minimum chances 4 it n v cant assure u and asked me whether i
had any objection to work in complete IT oriented field. .i said No...
Then dey wished me All d best...
