### TCS PAPER & INTERVIEW - 28 DEC 2009 - PUNE

Posted By : Shaik Rating : +33, -6
Hi Friends

I wrote this paper after memorizing all the questions that i faced. I was aptitude-topper.

TCS did campus recruitment on 28th   December 2009.  At 9 am there was a PPT session happened for 2 hours. Then online  aptitude test started at 11 am.

Online test was good. There were 3  sections

1. Verbal {32 questions==20 min}

2. Quantitative {38 questions==40  min}

3. Analytical {12  questions==30min}

VERBAL:

10 synonym & 10 antonyms were  there… some of them I can remember are

SYNONYMS->

(1) PONDEROUS

ANTONYMS->

(1) OSTENTIENCE

(2) AVID

And 2 passages were there. 1st one  for fill in the blanks & 2nd one for unseen..

N.B.: My advice is “you may not  score good in verbal but quant-section & analytical section is rocking  where you can score above cutoff!!”

In addition to these questions  some of the data sufficiency questions were also there but they were peanuts.  You can easily solve them.

CRITICAL/ANALYTICAL  REASONING:

Do practice questions from GRE  BARRON’S 13th edition as well as from earlier editions. Do solve all the  passages having 4 or more than 4 questions. Avoid passages having 1-3 questions…  all questions are common from BARRON’S. Otherwise you can try out for Career  forum, Career launcher, IMS material they also guide well.

I could remember 2 out of three  puzzles for you.

On 28th aptitude happened 90  appeared & 18 cleared.

On the same day interview started  from 2 pm, 9 panels were there. Electronics & Telecommunication,  CSE, IT interviews started at the same time in parallel.

My technical  interview started from 2.00pm to approx 2.40pm.

MR interview lasted for 20 minutes  thereafter.

At 8 pm they declared the result & I  was selected!

15 out of 18 were selected.

1) Do not get disheartened by  frustrating verbal section, do not worry there is no sectional cutoff.

2) Don’t worry about the passages.

3) You can switch to any question  in that particular section using hyperlinks, but you cannot switch to questions  from another section.

4) You cannot gain time by  finishing a section within predefined time, extra time is not added to the next  section preceding it.
