Anna university conducted a state level placement 2011 for all the affiliated colleges under anna university.
The eligibility criteria was minimum 60% in 10th and 12th.
Engineering-72% and above with no standing arrears(backlogs).
FIRST ROUND: APPTITUDE TEST
The apptitude questions always are repeated from the previous placement papers.. TCS uses touch stone software created by the IIT students. 35 questions and timelimit for the apptitude test is 80 minutes.
the questions can also be repeated,like i got one question four times but the values were changed and the concept was also changed a bit. so when the same question repeats never put the same answer,bocz the values might be changed.
TCS paper consits only of apptitude..it doesn't cover the verbal ability and verbal reasoning. so quants and logical reasoning is enough for ur preparation.
The questions have unecessary matters try to avoid the unecessary stuff.
1. There are 6 beer bottle nd one is poisoned. we have mice who will die within 14 hrs after drinkin poisned beer. In 24 hrs we have to find poisoned beer bottle. How many no of mice we require to find out poisoned bottle.
ans: <c> 3 mices should be given 2 bottles each so one mice would die drinking the poisened bottle.. we need minimum no. of mices so v need to divide the six atleast as possible.
This question was repeated four times but the values and concept was changed..
2. The IT giant Tirnop has recently crossed a head count of 150000 and earnings of $7 billion. As one of the forerunners in the technology front, Tirnop continues to lead the way in products and services in India. At Tirnop, all programmers are equal in every respect. They receive identical salaries ans also write code at the same rate.Suppose 12 such programmers take 12 minutes to write 12 lines of code in total. How long will it take 72 programmers to write 72 lines of code in total?
Those who clear the apptitude test are almost selected bcoz the HR round is just causual..
P.S : U don't have negative markings so do not answer the questions in fluke answer them if u knw it correctly, bocz you wil be disqualified if u have negatives....
The cutoff would be generally 21-25....since i participated in an off-campus the cutoff was high...i did atleast 30 correctly i answered two questions in fluke.. i expect the cutoff was 30....

about 7000 members attended the test and only 150 got through to the second round and luckily i was one of them. the next day i had my techincal and hr round...
about 10 HR's were interviewing students simultaneously at a time.. when my chance came through i went inside a room where HR's were sitting with numbers in their chairs... the one who opened the door asked me to go to the number 7... i had 2 HR's interviewing me...one was a mam and other was a sir...
