Hi All, I attended TCS interview.

No of Rounds: 4

1. Aptitude.
2. Technical Interview.
3. Management Interview.
4. HR Interview.

Aptitude: I gave my aptitude at 11:00 am on 29th of august 2010. This  round was online (touchstone ) with +1 for each correct answer and -0.33 for  every incorrect answer. In all there were 35 questions to be solved in 60  mins. No verbal questions. Logical And Quantitative Questions on subjects like  age, average, series, permutation and combinations etc were asked. The  difficulty level was not so high but the questions were lengthy and  unnecessarily made complicated.

Half of the question (especially first half) was just to increase the length  of question and divert attention..Formulae are also provided for reference which I  then go to check whether they were useful ;)
For age related problems for eg.

Peter and Paul were friends. After six years Paul will be twice as old as  Peter was when peter was as old as paul..if sum of their ages is 36 find the age  of peter.

Here we have to solve by considering the options and substituting the value  in the equation obtained. This was the nac for these type questions..I got 3-4  age related problems.

A women has some gloves and hats..she has 15 red,37 yellow and 47 white colored  gloves in a box.(then some lines just to distract..As there is no light,  how many minimum no of gloves should she pick so that she has a pair of each  color.

A farmer buys a horse for Rs 9 in 2003.(some essay.) and decides  to sell it at Rs 19 in 2006.(.)he again invests in purchase of  horse by purchasing it at Rs 27 in 2009 and selling it t Rs 39 in 2010..what  is the average profit made.

If the ratio of ages of father and son is 6:5 , when will the average of their  ages be 8:7 if the sum of their ages is 44.this question is very simple but  contained a lot of unwanted data which is skipped here.

A girl tries to build a building of 100 cc with 5 cc,4 cc and 2 cc many  minimum number of blocks will be required to construct a building of (some given  dimension)....

One crape cloth piece of 57 inch length is be cut make........the tailor then  decides to use 8 cms long and 12 cms wide instead of crape cloth piece..Minimum  how many such pieces will be required...

one scale 10cms wide is kept.another scale of 14cms width is overlapped on this  scale.Then the scale of width 10 is placed adjacent .
Again the 14cms scale is on and so forth....How many scales are  required to make a combined width of 52cms in the same fashion....

Then there was a simple logical question on directions..A man travels 20 kms  west then takes a right n goes 7 kms....He takes a right again n travels 20  kms..and moves straight for another 8 kms....find the distance he came from his  original position...

Some questions regarding series completion and volumes and cisterns was asked..

The results of the aptitude were announced soon and out of the ~380 students  who gave the aptitude only 35 were selected for the Technical Round.

Management Interview:

I had my MI and TI together..for my MI I was asked all routine questions..
Tell me ur strengths and weakness..

Do u knw whts going on in IT industry..recent activities in IT sector..
Whyy should I hire u?

What do u knw abt TCS? Why do u want to join this company..Will any other company  besides TCS do..? Do you have facts and figures to support your arguments?

Do you have any of your acquaintances in TCS?
Where do you see yourself 5 years later..?

Are you ready to relocate?Veg/Nonveg...... etc etc
After this was a complete nail biting tension of TI+MI results.....Some 25 mins  later i was taken for HR round.

HR Round:

This was the best interview..all similar questions.....gave a puzzle to  solve....asked about diff languages i knew..was made to speak in a few of them..  :) sir was very lenient and hence i din have any sort of uneasiness..  Few  hours later at around 6:30pm,our results were announced and my happiness knew no  bounds when my name was called and everyone around clapped..

Out of 380+ who appeared for aptitude, 35 qualified for the TI and finally  after all rounds, only 11 were selected on the second day at Nagpur...I am  proud to be among them. Very happy to join TCS family.
