I am doing my 3rd yr BTech(IT) at PEC, Puducherry. TCS was
the first company to recruit at my college n fortunately I
was selected. Well, I wud lik to share my experience wid all
u guys who r preparing fr TCS.
TCS came to my college on 13th june. As always an interview
is preceded by a PPT (pre placement talk) wch started around
10 in the morning. An experienced person from TCS had cum n
was delivering a lecture about the company and all the
stuff. It was quite interesting. V were shown a movie about
the company and evry student was listening quite well. The
talk went fr about 2 hours.Immediately aft the PPT it was
announced that the aptitude test wud b conducted widin an
hour. Evry1 was busy makin a last minute preparation. Since
the test was conducted department-wise , I had my aptitude
only at 8 at nyt.
At 8 pm, we ppl were called into the lab since it was an
on-line test. The questions dat appeared to me were among
the usual 104 aptitude ques fr TCS (that I wil b including
along wid dis article…don’t worry!!) and regardin the
critical reasoning u gotta b thorough the BARRON’S 12th or
13th edition model question paper . Regarding English only
Synonyms, Antonyms, Comprehension and Fill up the blanks are
asked (believe me its too tuf to do well in English unless u
r thorough wid evrythin in BARRON….so its bettr to do well
in the other sections).For aptitude test,
Aptitide-40 mins(30 ques)
Critical Reasoning-30 mins(3 ques)
I had completed the aptitude test and the result wud b
shown on the computer screen as soon as u click the “EXIT”
button. I cleared d test and next day was the interview.
I had reached college early by 9, prepared myself well n
was ready for the “challenge”. The interview process
consisted of two rounds: Technical n HR round.
In the Technical round, as soon as I entered the room the
interviewer welcomed me and told me to sit down. Then the
first ques I was askd was
