I took TCS written on 7th Oct..It was said that around 28,000 attended the test. The results were announced after 15 days..I got through the written test and I am preparing for the interview. Around 2800 were shortlisted for interview.
I just want to mention few stratergies that I followed before the test..First and foremost thing one has to do before taking the test is to download all the previous papers from this site ( )..They helped me a lot.
We all thought that it will be an online test but it turned out to be a written test which will be somewhat to answer because there will be no section wise time limit we can go 2 any section and answer the easiest section.
The test comprises of as usual three sections. I got X set for the test. All r saying that X set is the very easy one..But I don't agree to that because Verbal Section is very difficult..
This section consists of 10 antonyms and 10 synonyms. Follow GRE barrons 12th edition high frequency words. For the unknown synonyms I jst read the choices below and found the word that is is not of the same meaning as the other three words...better u too follow the same stratergy for this because definitely 3-4 synonyms we cant get the answer. Next there will sentence completion question..a paragraph is given and we have to fill sentences in the blanks.i got through this one very easily..next reading comprehension it took a lot of time for me..better come to RCs after u have completed everything..its very time consuming
The best way 2 get through this section is 2 follow the old papers..all of them I got r from old papers ..for some of the questions the values also not changed..Ten questions on venn diagram, data interpretation. So get through these topics definitely..u can score 10 marks in a very little time..remaining all r the same models..
This is the section which saved a lot of time for me..follow the 5 model tests in GRE barrons..One stratergy u can follow is to look at the puzzles which have four questions..later see the puzzles that have more questions..this thing will help u lot..definitely 2 puzzles will come if u follow this..The puzzles that I got are the red and brown problem, man and distance and toll rates and another one which is very easy 2 answer..
Finally guys, the most important thing I thought to succeed the test is time management..All the best for those who will apper the test..i was given the schedule 2 attend the interview on 25th Nov..So pray for me guys that I could succeed in the interview.
