TCS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 02 FEB 2008 - NEW DELHI
TCS conducted campus drive in MSIT Janak-puri New Delhi, me n my college visited MSIT. I must say dat all dat u need is to believe in urself n almighty n everything will b fine (it's all in ur stars).
I would like to share my experience with u all who r preparing for TCS.
1st Round : Written (Online test)
It's an online test consisting of 3 sections
1st section : Verbal
10 synonms, 10 antonyms, n paragraphs
i would suggest don't prepare for dis section as it's really hard to remember synonms n antonyms
i really not prepared for dis section
2nd section : Aptitude
Prepare dis section very well dis section consist of 32 questions. For dis section prepare d old TCS questions bcoz dey r always same (questions r given in dis portal by a Galgotia's student). And try to attempt most of d questions as dere is no negative marking. I attented about 28 questions n dey are correct as i knew.
3rd section : Reasoning
12 questions will b dere. I have 3 paragraphs with 4 questions each. Prepare all 5 model test paper from
GRE Barrons(12th edition). They put exact paragraphs from Barron's n atleast prepare all those paragraphs
which have 4-5 questions. If u are not able to solve dem dan just mug up all of dem.
For technical interview prepare ur previous semester main subjects. Please try to do a project. In my case my technical interview goes for 30-35 min they were taking the technical interview for an average of 40 minutes. So b prepared TCS really takes the Techincal Interview.
Both of my interviewer's were very cool n supportive.
