TCS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 06 JUL 2007
This is Ramya from Chemical Engineering Department.I want to share with u my experiences
Regarding Aptitude previous yrs question papers are sufficient. Refer Barrons for synonyms, antonyms n if u r lucky enuf may get comprehension also from Barrons 12th/13th editions.
About critical reasoning which's the most important section to get selected in the online test, i got entirely from Barrons 12th edition.. But in some, names were changed so be careful while mugging up d answers. But in some cases for sections having more than 4 questions they randomly chose 4 out of dose questions. So for dose sections mugging up jus d options may end u up in vain.
I had my interview the next day around 11 am which lasted for 45-50 minutes.. My panel consisted of 4 members. The panel members were very friendly and made me feel very comfortable.
The first thing they asked me whether I had my breakfast. Then asked me d routine tell me about urself. I answered n meanwhile dey interrupted n asked me about my family background, my fav director n about d movie i watched last. Then i was asked some questions from organic chemistry like what is common salt n its preparation, formula n structure 4 methane. Then I was asked some questions in electronics lik what is electronics, truth table and asked me draw d truth table for AND gate. Then they just asked me regarding my areas of interest.
Then they offered me a cup of coffee n asked me about d C programs in my 1st semester. After dat they gave me one puzzle n asked me solve n explain dem.. I jus tried n got d solution n explained them. He seemed to b much satisfied n said its exact. Then asked me to write a program to find d largest of 3 nos. I wrote n explained him. Then he asked me what is preprocessor directive, use of semicolon n getch() in C,use of Break n Continue statements.
They gave preference to knowing some additional lang like Hindi and asked me regarding dat as I mentioned about it in my resume. They said dat ok den u ll b placed in North places lik Amritsar etc. I was a bit assured wid d kind of their reply. Since i mentioned dat my brother working in TCS in d form dey gave, dey asked me wat he's working as, what he said about TCS.. Then dey asked me whether i had any location preference, y switching to IT, my hobbies... Den finally dey asked any questions do u ve 4 us.. I asked dem whether any relevance of our chemical subjects with d IT field v r going to work in. They jus said ya der's but minimum chances 4 it n v cant assure u and asked me whether I had any objection to work in complete IT oriented field. I said No.. Then dey wished me All d best...
Now I feel proud to b a member of TCS.
