TCS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 03 MAR 2008
TCS recruitment procedure basically include 4 rounds:
1) Online Aptitude Test
But in my case it was a bit different, after clearing the Aptitude test, i had 3 interviews in each of which i had to face all the three (technical, HR, MR) kind of questions.
I'll try to separate out the questions into the 3 categories.
Although I am a CSE student, I was questioned mostly on Electronics subjects. So do take care about brushing up Electronics and Physics also.

A no. of more such questions were asked, these are the major ones. Each interview was of 25-30 minutes
They also take ur STRESS Test. For example, although I have more than 8.5 percentile, he scolded me for bad grades. He said that it was poor performance and i needed to study properly.
The basic trick is to keep ur cool and a smile on ur face. Pls do not try to fool them, if u dont know something, accept it then and there.
