TCS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 23 JUL 2005 - CHENNAI
I like to tell you all that with GOD'S blessings i have been placed in TCS. the TCS off-campus was held at chennai on 16th and 17th of july 2005. it was on the spot registration. on 20th they put the cadidates names who have been selected on the website.
I had my interview on 23rd july at 8:30AM at TCS office at vadapalani, Chennai.
thanks to this wonderful group and to Friends mam, without whom i would not have got this success. only with the help of the files i downloaded from this group i was able to clear the written test.
THANKS AND THANKS A LOT.
To those people who are yet to get a job dont worry somewhere some good job is waiting for you. i have attended 10 companies before TCS. at first i wasn't able to clear the written test for some 3 companies and after that i cleared the written test but wan't able to clear GD in 2 companies and failed in the inteview in the other companies. at times i felt so bad that i didn't get a job. but i had the confidence that i will get a job soon. so that is only required to you all and just keep working hard.
now some tips to crack the TCS written test:
1: synonyms and antonyms: go through the previous papers and dont just read the GRE high frequency words alone. read the exercise given after every wordlist in the GRE barrons book. mostly the words will be from those exercise only.
2: maths: just learn the method from the previous papers and just dont blindly mug up the answers because they change some details. for example one question is about the memory and they give the starting address and ask u to find the memory location of (8,5)or something like that and in one question paper they give that each location is four bits long and in other they give one location is 8 bits long. so go through the question carefully.
3: we had one reading comprehension and i will suggest u to keep this section the last to answer.
4:in the analytical ability we had 3 passages. go through GRE barrons(old edition) and atleast 2 will be form this book.
my Interview Experience:
we had one technical interview and one MR interview
the interview panel had two members. one lady and one sir.
for me they just asked questions from C and little about the final year project.i am a ECE student.
they asked me to write a program(fibonacci series). the interview was easy for me.
they asked about pointers and why it is used?
what is a NULL pointer?
what do you know about linked list?
what is array and what is structure?
what is multiplexing?
then asked some general questions like why do u want to switch over to software?
where will u be after 3-5 years?
do u have any idea of doing higher studies?
what is your aim?
for my friend they some basic questions from the ECE subjects and also from C. so it depends upon the panel.
in the MR interview only one sir was there in the panel.
first he asked me to tell me about yourself and about your backgroud?
why do you want to join TCS?
are you mobile?
he asked me are you good in C?
i said:yes sir.
he asked me to tell the difference between call by value and call by reference? what is fibonacci series?
i said the answers and then he too asked me "why do u want to switch over to software?"
then he asked what steps have u taken to enter to the software field?
then he said u had maths till your second year and how much did you score in it?
i said i used to score above 70. then he asked me to tell "what is the transpose of a matrix?" i said that correctly and then he asked me some questions from my project.
then he said "u have to take a decision, it's in the favour of theclient but it will embarass your friend, what will u do?"
i said i will take the decision in favour of the client and i will explain my situation to my friend.
after some more questions he asked me if i have any questions and then he said
all the best.
