I m proud to say that I've got placed in TCS. They came 2 our campus on 13th and 1006 candidates were selected out of 2330. If u want 2 get in to TCS, kindly concentrate on the TEST. Its actually very easy to clear TCS paper once u have seen the previous papers.
1. VERBAL: 20 MIN(32 Q)
2. APS: 40 MIN(35Q)
3. CRTICAL REASONING:30 MIN(12Q)
*learn high frequency words frm BARRONS
*See Papers for some previously asked qns
*Just practise reading comprehensions from BARRONS....at times u get the same one...only in 10% of the cases
*Sentence completion is quite easy...u can manage
NOTE: even if u learn all high freq words, u might not know some 30% of synonyms etc....Don't worry....just answer some 7-8 out of 10 in synonyms, antonyms. BE careful, if u r preparing 4 GRE or any other xam, u might know all but plz plz answr atmost 8...or else u ll be rejected becoz there's an upper cutoff!!!!
Do this as quickly as possible.... Verbal is the only section wer u won't find enough time.. if u don't know words, go to RC, sentence completion
*See many papers.... it gets repeated just like tat....only numbers change
*you need not work out books lik R.S.aggarwal for this. they are too simple....but plz c it once before u go
There are about 6-7 Dummy questions.. ie...the correct ans won't be any of the 5 options given. I heard if u ans more than 4 of these dummy qns u ll get rejected automatically. So be careful, work out all questions before u select the ans. DON'T ANSWER THESE DUMMY QUESTIONS
* Work out all 5 model test papers in 12th edition BARRONS and all mug up all answers... It might appear silly....but those who did'nt do tis could'nt clear the test. So don't forget this plz.
* very rarely all the qns might not be from BARRONS .. but this is for 1 out of 100... so better learn all
* at times the names given ll be different from the ones given in the book (again very very rarely)
no matter how badly u perform in verbal, u r xpected 2 do well in this and aps. SO ANSWER A MINIMUM OF 8 CORRECT IN THIS.(out of 12)....and at the max attend 9 or 10 correctly.
then as soon as u finish, u ll get the results.
this is wer partly ur luck plays a role....
I was the last person to b intreviewed tat day, so already they wer too tired....Plus mine was a kind of stress panel. But the panelists are too kind & gud. and they r too alert. So b careful wen u ans. Stay very very calm and ans very politely.. U must b in a position 2 justify watever u say....
so prepare 4 some std questions like
*why software(for non-it)?
*why not higher studies?
*TAY(Tell abt Urself)
And the mot important thing is C. learn basics of C .....no body s gonna ask u 2 rite a program in pointers or so,,, but they just ask some basic qns lik wats an array, pointer, structure, diff between struct & union, wats enum, tyedef, typecast, abt data types, loops, preprocessor
ALL BASIC DEFINITIONS ONLY, BUT THEY LOOK AT THE WAY U XPLAIN EVEN A SMALL CONCEPT.... EXPLAIN WELL WITH AN Eg And the next imp question is wats the diff between C, C++ (atlest 5 points..prepare) and explain the concepts in OOPs (polymorphism, inheritence...)
Next some basic programs like:
GREATEST OF 3 NUMBERS, ROOTS OF A QUADRATIC EQUATION, GREATEST OF N NUMBERS, SORTING N NUMBERS, PALINDROME, FIBONNACI NUMBERS, ARMSTRONG NUMBER, PERFECT NUMBER, PRIME NUMBER, REVERSAL OF A STRING, MATRIX ADDITION, MATRIX MULTIPLICATION, FACTORIAL
then ur area of interest of course.....and some times they ask u to list the subjects u learnt in a particular sem, and they ask some basics from all those....so be prepared....be clear wat subject u learnt in a particular sem.....
ABOVE ALL THIS IT'S YOUR FAITH IN GOD. believe in HIM.. Never b upset if don't get one.. always prepare well in advance so that you don't repent later...
