TCS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 06 JAN 2010 - KOLKATA
TCS came 2 our college on 6th january for the online aptitude test. Total 210 students gave apti and 138 got selected in aptitude n Finally 62 got placed in TCS.
Aptitude test consisted of 3 sections:
Sec-1->English section Time-20 Mins 32 questions
10 synonyms & 10 antonyms
sentence completion with too many options in one passage.
Hardly 6 synonyms n antonyms I was knowing correctly though I had learned all the previous years papers and barrons model test paper. It generally doesn't happen. It was my hard luck. so I preferred eliminating the options to reach 2 correct option.
Sec-2->Quants section Time 40 Mins 38 questions
This is the most scoring section. I got almost all questions correct in this section upto question 32. I dint see last 33-38 questions of DI before. I thought there is only 32 question but managed 2 do rest in last 2 minutes. In this section 90% questions were from previous years papers. So be prepared with time management. Dont do mistakes.
Sec-3->Analytical Reasonong Time 30 Mins 12 questions
This is the most toughest section... three reasoning set each containing 4 questions (4*3=12 questions total). But to me it seemed very easy. All the sets were from GRE Barron's model test paper only with same sequence of questions. I mugged up all. So I took hardly 5 min for all 12 questions.
So go with the GRE Barrons 12th edition's model test papers (all English n reasoning section).
Our interview was to be held on 8th january. So I got xtra time 2 prepare for interview. I was very much nervous before going to my interview panel but as soon as I entered the room I kept myself cool. My interview started at 3.30 pm
me:may I come in sir?
me:thank you sir. shaked hands with good after noon wish.
HR:take your seat.
me:thank you sir. He then saw my TCS form which I had filled.
HR:ok deepak first introduce urself.
me:i told. dont go deep into your family background or your marks. tell about your good/strong qualities, current projects etc.
HR:you are having 2 year gap. why so?
me:sir, being a bright student thru out my life I was sure of cracking IIT JEE after preparing for 1 year. so dint fill other forms. I dint keep plan B that time. After that mistake I learnt one should always be ready with plan B. so I had no option other than to drop. Next year I filled all forms n got admission in this college thru AIEEE. With that mistake I always go with 2 options in my life now. I was trying to answer this question in company's favour only. so be prepared if you have gaps.
HR:ok.....where did you do your summer training?
me:sir..in HP on Networking.
HR:what things you learnt there?
me:i told blah... blah... blah what came to mind that tym..
HR:can you name all the OSI layers?
HR:what is difference between hub and switch?
HR:what is your favourite subject?
HR:then y you did training on networking?
me:sir, I studied C++ in my +2. I dint find anything new during semester in C++. so thought of trying something new. networking was new to me. so did training on networking.
HR:ok...give me the outputs of these 2 programs?
me:i gave confidently though it was wrong but I got convinced when he replied the right answer.
HR:do you know any other subjects like DBMS?
HR:what is normalization, BCNF, 3NF, 2NF n 1NF? which one is best?
me:i told all.
HR:what is multithreading n multitasking?
HR:are you good in programming?
HR:can you write program for string palindrome?
me:yes.i wrote the whole program correctly. he saw my program's each line till 1 min n then kept aside.
HR:so you are going 2 be an engineer.must be going for GATE xam?
me:no sir. i m not interested in GATE at all.
HR:then must be opting for CAT ?
HR:why? evryone is going for CAT. why not you?
me:sir, i studied the BASIC language when I was in class 7 n had developed a racing game in class 9. I had thought of becoming a software engineer that time only. I took computer science as fifth paper in class 11 though everyone was against it as it required same labour as required in PCM. but I managed all. then I took CSE branch though ECE seat was vacant in same college. And my dream of software engg is going to be fulfilled in 6 mnths, how can I change my field all of a suuden. Engineering would prove worthless to me in that case.
HR:ok....you may go now.
me:thank you sir...shaked hands saying it was nice talking to you...
I was one of them when the result was declared......
