Interview (January 27, 2008): Technical round: Prepare well C, Object Oriented Programming, C++, Data Structure and brush up the fundamentals of Operating System, Database Management System and Data Communication. There were two people both young who took my technical interview. Be confident coz they may try to confuse you. I told that my favorites are Object Oriented Programming and DBMS. I was asked various fundamental questions on DBMS and Operating System(Not a single question on OOP), I answered most of them correctly next they asked to normalize a table and kept me engaged in it for more than 25 minutes. Atlast i asked them about the R&D department of TCS.
Be positive and keep on trying, they may even make fun of you but dont pay attention to it and keep working. Positive attitude and confidence along with knowledge are the key to clear this round. The interview continued for about 40 min+.Out of 108 about 55+ were selected. I was called for the HR round after 3 hrs.
HR + MR: For some there were two different rounds but for other like me it was combined. Again there were two people one male and the other female. Both were young. They began with asking questions about me, my weaknesses and all. Then the questions continued from one thing to other. I was also given some situations and my action in that particular condition was asked.
The major thing is be confident and truthful, Don't try to fool them, Be ready with facts to support your answers and ya be thorough with your Resume. Keep eye contact and keep your face smiling, there is no need to panic they just want to test you under certain conditions. My interview continued for 50 min+. In the end they discussed about the Bond and other things.
I asked them that what is their criteria to ask questions. They replied that they have a question bank and the questions are asked on the basis of our marks, resume, and body language. Finally the result was out and 33 of us were selected. Luck do matters but hard work has no substitution. I invested 20 days+ for the preparation and in the end was successful, so guys be confident and prepare well, you will definitely be selected. All the Best..............
