out of which 94 are engg students & da remaining are post graduate
students(7).. i'm a M.Sc student.. i'm really to be one among da 7.. i
really din concentrate much on verbal coz of laziness... i think cut off
is 50 and no sectional cut off... three sections verbal(32 qns in 20
mins), aptitude(38 qns in 40 mins) and the final one is critical
reasoning(3 paras consists of 4 qns each & 30 mins).. i prepared well
for aps and reasoning... coz they were all repeated ones..
for reasoning GRE 12th edition is best...Some of the which i remember is

Mrs H wants to make a seating arrangement which s from 2nd model paper i
think so, During vedic period only two marriages allowed from 5th model
paper, horizontal rows and vertical columns from 4 model i think...
my advice to you all is be thorough with GRE 12th model papers.. then
can definetly clear the aptitude.....
then i had TECHNICAL in that i was asked
Diff bw structures and unions?
SDLC?
Diff types of testing?
Arrays?
Virtual Fns?
Friend fns?
Diff bw database and files?
Diff bw C and C++?
wat are the various models in software engg?
Diff bw spiral model and incremental model?
but i was not satisfied with my tech interview... i got the mind set
that i'm going to be rejected in tech... but fortunately i got
selected...
then i went to meet my HR he asked
Tell about your family background?
Do you hav any location constraints?
Did you do any language in your summer vacataion?
supposing if one of team mate is not speaking with you and he is not
doing his properly.. How would u react to this situation?
Wat do u know about TCS?(i said its a prestigious concern.. its focus is
main on Quality and customer satisfaction is much important)
then he asked Quality can be acheived only if v work 24 hours.. will you
work for all the 24 hrs?
i said sir if i'm going to concentrate on my work for even 1 hr with
sincearity then Quality can be achieved in 1 hr itself.. it is not
necessary that we can achieve quality by workin 24 hrs a day...
Sometimes you may have to work more than 8 hrs a day... is that
comfartable for you?
these were qns
friends wat they really expect from the freshers is our confidence and
positive way of answering...
you hav to speak a lot in hr... if u r reserved then they ll ask u more
