My Name is Arshad I. Shaikh and i would like to share my expereince
during TCS Off-Campus Inteview. I m student of Dr. D. Y. Patil
College.Pimpri and Studying in M.C.S. The Test was on 2nd of December
2007. The written test was at Panchsheel Street,Hadapsar,Pune
They called all the candidates at 8:30 a.m. There were around
600students and they have 100 batches for written test. I was there in
campus at 9:30 a.m and my apti batch started on 4:30 in the evening. So
i was very tired in their AC room. It was online test consisting of 35
question that u have to solve in 90 min. U would thinks its easy but
believe me my freinds it was not so easy. I had completed 14 quest in 1
hr. It consist of max logical question and very few verbal quest. The
quest was like
Sample Apti Quest
1)P,Q,R,S,T,U are the students in the class.
P is taller than U, U is shorter than S, S is taller than P,.....(not
Find who is taller one
2)A,B,C are the 3 student that have stolen a camera.
This each student has made 2 statement in which one is speaking true,one
is lying and other is giving alternate true and lye
Their Statement are
A: 1) B has stolen camera
2) I m not telling lie
B: 1)C is telling true
2)I have not stolen Camera
C: 1) A is telling lie
2) i m telling truth
Find out who is telling alternate true and lie.
A) A B) B C) C D) Cant Determined.
There were few questions on Trains,Boatstreams,Blood Relations,Verbal
So my advice to you to answer that question that u know very well and in
last 10 min answer all your quess questions. There is no Negative
Marking. I have scored 14/35. The question are very lengthy and u have
answer reading all quest so max time was wasted over there.
Cutoff was 13. It depends on level of complexity in each aptitude.
After written test they said result in 5 mins.and were given blue form
to fill all the personal detailsand said that u will be call for
technical round within 7 days. They have given hint that ur technical
round will be on your skills written in ur resume. So friends if ur
knowing little Java then please dont mention in resume. I was called for
Interview on 7th Dec and i was very nervous. when i went to interview
,the interviewer realised that i m nervous he told me that dont be
nervous and take this interview as our discussion. He told me that roam
