Tata Consultancy Services Interview Pattern - January 23, 2016
I have read some of the IndiaBix TCS interview experiences, which helped me to get placed in TCS. I thought my experience will be helpful for others during the interview process.
I'm a EEE student 2015 batch. I Attended TCS off campus drive for 2015 batch.
Our written test was scheduled on 2nd December 2015, due to flood in Chennai and coastal areas in Tamil nadu its postponed to 23rd January 2016. I got some more time for preparation.

MR: Is that happened coincidentally or you planned for it?
Me: We asked ISRO regarding rocket launch, they allowed as to watch it, so we planned our visit accordingly.
And they asked me about my sports activity.
TR: Do you have any questions for us?
But TR asked MR to answer my question, he said, I want to ask you some more question before answering.
MR: Why should I hire you?
MR: How confident are you?
TR: Okay, Thank you. You can wait for the results.

Unfortunately they didn't answer my question.
After one week I got my offer letter through mail. I'm happy to be a part of prestigious industry TCS.
