TCS PAPER - 18 FEB 2005 - KOLKATTA

Posted By : Sohini Rating : +3, -1

The Registration process was scheduled from 9 am - 3 pm. I reached there at around 9:10 only to find an unending queue. After a lot of jostling, I finally managed to get in at around 12:00 pm. Inside the college, there were a lot of TCS volunteers. The verification process was quick. They were checking the % of marks and backlogs (if any) from the CV. The volunteer wud then put his signature and arbitrarily write "Manual" or "Online" on the CV. Based on this, U wud be sent for online or manual test. I had to appear for the Manual Test.
