TCS recruited perhaps the highest number of students from our college i.e KIIT and the figure is 310 to be precise. Around 500 had qualified for the interview (HR and Tech combined) from 550 who were allowed to write the written test. And not to mention I was one of the lot. Thanks to all the papers uploaded on this site by numerous people. I am not uploading my written test paper because all the questions were same But u must be cautious while reading as they have changed the values. They have prepared a same set of questions with values changed and the same questions are being given all over india. So my suggestion for the written are simple. Just solve 2-3 papers uploaded on this site and i believe u will be through the written test. For L.R section just go through barron's 12th edition. Same for the comprehension
Now comes the P.I. part. Luckily I had H.R and tech combined. In case u don't no need to worry.. Just go through the basics of whatever fav subjects u r going to mention. U never know which panel u would get. In some panel they conduct only H.R and in some other only Tech. So it all depends. They may not ask u from ur fav subjects and at the same time they may ask about NEWTON's laws of motion, gauss law, faraday law etc. So u see u need to know abt the basics and some indepth knowledge abt ur fav. subjects. It may happen that they may not ask for for ur subjects. It depends.....
So I am only going to tell u abt my interview experience I gave my P.I to a lady and don't take her for granted ....
Lady:: so tell me abt urself which is not mentioned in ur resume.

Lady:: so what is the best part of hostel life?

Lady: :if someone does a wrong thing (in a workplace) what would u do

end of the interview
One sincere advice to all of u. You must know each and everything u mention on ur resume. Speak well and support with examples. don' have a rigid stance. Brush up ur fundamentals I am frm ETC department so people from my department need to know simple programs in C and concepts of C++. thats it from myself Best of luck. Remenber TCS is not the end .
