TCS Latest Job  Interview Placement Paper Pattern

Company Name : TCS
Type : Fresher, Job Interview

Hi all,

This is Harshit Chowdhary from Galgotias College Of  Engineering & Technology, Gr. NOIDA. We had our TCS Campus Drive on 13th of Jan,  2010. Please be prepared this time as the pattern has changed a bit. Each  student got different papers so there is very less chances of cheating also.

We had the following rounds :
1.) Written Test
2.) Technical Interview
3.) Manegerial Interview
4.) HR

1.) Written Test : (Online Test, All had different Papers)
Section 1 : Verbal Ability : 32 questions (30 minutes)
Section 2 : Aptitute Test : 38 questions (40 minutes)
Section 3 : Critical Reasoning : 3 X 4 questions (20 minutes)

Section 1 : 10 Synonyms, 10 Antonyms, 1 Fill in the blanks and 1 Reading  Comprehension
Vocab - I would strongly suggest don't waste all your time memorizing the  Barrons word list. If you prepare 333 high frequency list then you might get 10  from those and sometimes even if you prepare 1000 words you won't get 2-3. Its  all luck. Its better you concentrate on the other sections. I had only prepared  the meanings of the 333 high frequency words thoroughly and was able to solve  12-13 of them. Only if you have time then you can go next to the 100 antonyms  section and then to the words in the model test paper, otherwise there is no  need for these.

Fill in the blanks - Most of us wasn't able to solve it completely. No  preparation needed for this.

RC - This one was a bit easier. If you have normal reading speed then you can  make it through easily. Earlier it used to come from Barrons 12th Edititon but  the pattern has changed this time and none were from it, so don't mug up these  although you can just have a reading once or twice in case by chance you get  one. Bet thing is to read the questions directly and look out for the answers in  the passage.

Section 2 : There is no need to prepare the questions given in the papers  that is given by other people on freshersworld. None were like that this time.  The questions this time were simple ones on fraction, percentage, probablity,  work and some on line equations and inequality, venn diagram, pie chart, etc. No  need to prepare for these as they were quite simple and if you have general idea  of all these you can easily solve all. I was able to solve 30 of them correctly  and then ran out of time and couldn't attempt the damn easy ones on venn diagram  and pie chart having 4 subparts each. This section is quite scoring so try to  attempt all if possible. Eg. x litres of wine costs y and z liters of juice  costs w. What is the ratio of the cost per litre of each.

And some questions like these:--
Section 3 : This section is the saviour for all the rattu totas. :-)  Earlier all the 3 questions used to come directly from Barron's 12th Edition but  this time each got a maximum of two from the Barrons 12th edition, and some even  didn't get a sigle one. So be prepared to solve them although they can be solved  easily with a little logic. The ones that came from barrons were just a copy  paste with the names changed like from 'Carol' to 'Kiran'. The options were also  not changed so please only memorize like badc. I and my friends have made very  easy to memorize codes for all of them. Since they cannot be posted publicly :-)  so you can mail me if you want them.

Questions asked are from these :

Model test 1: Section5 - qns 1-4 (motorist), qns 13-16 (red and brown)
Section6 - qns 1-4 (conservative,democratic), qns 8-11 (latin, sanskrit), qns  12-18 (joe,larry,ned), qns 19-22 (a causes b)
Model test 2: Section1 - qns 19-22 (wallachia and rumelia) ---
Section6 - qns 8-12 ( ashland , liverpool), qns 13-16 (spelunker) ---
qns 17-22 (pesth) ---i got this one too
Model test 3: Section6 - qns 1-4 (all Gs are Hs)
Model test 4: Section5 - qns 8-11 (horizontal row), qns 19-22 (a,b,c  cause d)
Section6 - qns 8-12 (spanish, italian), qns 13-16 (all As, Bs), qns 17-22  (progressive federal party)
Model test 5: Section3 - qns8-11 (museum), qns 19-22 (A is the father)
Section7- qns 1-5 (prahtu, brahtu), qns 21-25 (scurvy)

The cutoff that we have estimated must have been around 50%. So try to score  maximum in critical reasoning and aptitute as you can never be sure for the  english part.

2.) Technical Interview :

Tell me about your self. Told (Prepare something that is not in your CV that is  also impressive) Whats your 4th yr project. Explained. Then he asked some  questions on it. I had done some other industrial projects also, so he asked me  about each of them in detail. Told him about each.  Explain the process how  a website gets accessed to your browser after you type the URL in the web  browser. URL - Service Provider Server - DNS Server - Server IP. Explained this  to him properly. So you basically interested in Websites ? No sir. I know C  programing also.

Give me the values after each step.
i = 15;


What are your hobbies? Told (Prepare these also well as most of us don't have  any hobbies :-P Some of the interviewers might ask)

2.) Manegerial Interview :

Please wait outside for a minute. I knew he stressed on the  word 'a minute' so i knocked again exactly after a minute and he asked me to  come in. I apologised for interrupting but told him 'I thought you were very  specific about A MINUTE'. He was really impresses and gave me a smile.

What is SDLC ? Explained each step.
What is the output of the Design Phase? Told (DFD n all)
What is High level DFD and Low Level DFD ?

I said I am unable to recollect exactly. (Although I knew  what it was but didn't tell as he might then ask me to draw them, which i didn't  knew).

Suppose you have a customer who is very hard to convince. How  will you handle him? Answered
Tell me something about your family?  Told
Tell me why should I hire you?  Told (Prepare something unique)
Why TCS?  Told

Suppose you have marbles of three colours in a jar. Minimum  of how many should you withdraw so that there are atleast 2 balls of the same  colour in your hands.

3.) HR :
Tell me about yourself.  Told
Any plans for higher studies Not right now. Only if the company demands (Never  say yes. They will throw you out immediately)
We can send you anywhere in the world. Any problems Not at all.
Any problem with a 2 years bond to be signed? No Maam

This was my experience of the interviews although some of them went through even  without a single technical questions even in the technical round. Its all your  destiny. Just be a good speaker and a explain nicely and clearly so that he is  able to understand. This time they stressed too much on the communications also.  So if you are good at communication skills and not at technicals then you might  get through as many of our friends did.

127 out of the 330 eligibile students were selected after the written test for  the interviews and finally 70 were selected after the 3 successively eliminatory  interview rounds and I was one of them. Happy to be at TCS.

If my post proves to be of any help to any of you, then please do let me know.  In case of any queries mail me at ' hc1501[@] ' and I would be happy to  help. May God get you all selected. But always remember 'If you fail to prepare  then prepare to fail' . So put in your best and you will definitely make it  through easily . But after all there's a large share of destiny and Gods grace  also. So pray to God at all times and
