Tata Consultancy Services Interview Experience - Asansol(West Bengal)
I am Sameer, a student of CSE Stream from Asansol Engineering College 2010-14 batch.
Student from CSE and IT background do not stick the boundary of your knowledge to C and Java only. Have special commands on DBMS, OS, networking, internet technology.
TCS maintained the selection procedure at the month of october 2013.
This Year TCS altered the selection procedure as TCS added the verbal ability section along with the quantitative aptitude section.
Round 1: Verbal ability.
Round 2: Quantitative aptitude.
Round 3: Technical Interview.
Round 4: HR interview.
[Verbal ability is qualifying round which implies that if the student donot qualifies in verbal ability section then the paper for quantitative aptitude would not be manipulated and checked].
Round 1: Verbal ability (10 mins):
This section comprised several phrases and we had to prepare email for boss of office.
The Round is not so tough for the student who posses good to average command in English communication.
Note: The verbal ability section was conducted on computer system so student must make serious preparation with proper time maintenance.
Round 2: Quantitative aptitude:
Make preparation from RS agarwal, Arun sharma and pay special attention to m4maths as there were many questions in round which were similar as in m4maths but with different datas.
[Around 70 from CS, 79 from EC, 50 from IT, 20 from ME, 10 from EE qualified the aptitude round from our college].
