TCS PATTERN - 10 AUG 2005 - NEW DELHI
I am Himanshu Sardana from Bharati Vidyapeeth's College of Engineering,New Delhi. All thanks to the group members,i got selected in TCS. I am sending all the information what i remember.BEST OF LUCK to all.
The online exam was based on previous years pattern. Taken on software called Qubex.THERE WAS NO NEGATIVE MARKING.
10 antonynms+ 10 synonyms
2 passeges easy but long.
for this section prepare GRE barrons high frequency word list.
but more importantly prepare excercises given in antonynms chapter (CH-4,barrons 15th edition).
i got only 2-3 from high frequncy word list but 4-5 from excercises and TWO FROM EXAMPLES given in the antonynms chapter as it is without any changes.
so prepare these things well.WORDS WERE NOT REPEATED FROM PREVIOUS YEARS PAPRES (not even single).
there is no cut off in this section.
if you do 8 out of 20(10 ant + 10 syn) you have done resonably well.
divide your time well in advance.
you should be through with 10 syn + 10 ant in less than or at most 10 min. spend next 6- 8 minutes answering the passage.its easy if you can read and comprehend fast. spend next 1- 1.5 min reading and answering the second passage.
in last 30 seconds just forget everything and mark all answers as there is no negative marking.
ATEMPT ALL QUESTIONS do not leave any. most of people in our coillege who got through in written (including me) attenpted all questions.
duration : 40 min.
38 mathematics and logical questions.
this section is very easy but requires fast calculations.
for this section prepare previous years papers well.90 % of questions were repeated.
practice all papers so that you remember all answers without calculations becoz even figures of 90 % questions were unchanged.
if you do this its pretty easy.
however,be careful.there is a cut off in this section.so at least check your answers before you mark your remembered answers and be sure figures are not changed.
3.) CRITICAL REASONING:-
MOST DIFFICULT SECTION.
duration : 30 min.
3 questions of puzzle type(1 easy,1 good level and 1 very difficult) all repeated from prevoius years papers.
dont try to remember answers to these puzzles as there are huge in no.just practice and try to develop your puzzle solving techniques.
refer RS agg(verbel and non verbel aptitude) for these type of practice questions.
i got 1 question - ocean view, harbour view, hotel, rooms - you can find it in prevoius year papers. rest two i dont remember.
TRY TO FOGURE OUT THE EASIEST ONE BY READING FIRST PARA OF EACH PUZZLE IN HURRY.
be sure to be through with easiest question in less than 10 minutes. solve the medium level puzzle by spending 15 - 17 minutes.
BE SURE TO SOLVE THESE TWO PUZZLES RIGHTLY AND YOU ARE THROUGH.
spend next two minutes reading all the stuff of third puzzle and try to answer it.
well if you dont get anything just do this - MARK ALL ANSWERS OF LAST PUZZLE WITHOUT READING IN THE LAST MINUTE.
