The IBPS P.O. On-line Exam, one of the most reputed exams in the Indian banking sector, was held on the 19th (Saturday) and 20th (Sunday) of October 2013. The next set of dates for the exam are 26th/27th of Oct 2013 and 9th/10th of Nov 2013. It has been ascertained from students' assessment that overall, the examination was moderate, comparatively easier than the one held last year.

Total Questions 200
Quantitative Aptitude 50 questions

English Language 40 questions

IBPS CWE Exam sectional analysis is as follows : 

IBPS PO CWE  Quantitative Aptitude : 

In general, the difficulty level of this section can be pegged at moderate to difficult. It was reported that there were no questions on Simplifications and Approximations. This was something unexpected and caught students off-guard. Since the above were replaced by questions from various topics of Arithmetic, which usually take more time to solve, this section was time-consuming. 
The break-up of the 50 questions of this section is as : 
Data Interpretation – 20 
Number series – 5 
Quadratic Equations (Comparisons) – 5
Questions from individual topics of Arithmetic – 15
Data Sufficiency – 5

IBPS  CWE  Reasoning : 

According to the feedback received from candidates who have appeared for this exam, the difficulty level of this section can be termed as more or less moderate. As has been the pattern ever since the exam has gone on-line, this time too non-verbal questions were conspicuous by their absence. 
The break-up of the 50 questions in this section is as : 
Deductions – 5 
Data Sufficiency – 5 
Input/output – 5 
Decision Making – 5 
Puzzles – 15 
Other topics – 15 ( Symb & Not based Conclusions, Assumptions / Inferences / Cause and effect, Direction sense / Word digit formation / ranking etc.) 

IBPS CWE  General Awareness : 

It was reported by students that most of the 40 questions in this section were from Banking Awareness and Indian Economy. Current affairs also formed the basis for a few questions. The difficulty level can be stated as easy to moderate. 

IBPS CWE English Language: 

As reported, this section can be called a difficult one, as the Comprehension questions, which students dread, dominated this section. In one of the slots on the 19th of October, there were two passages with 15 questions and in one of the slots of the other day, the two RC passages had 10 questions each. 
Earlier, when the exam used to have 50 questions in this section, this kind of pattern was common. But with almost half of this section dominated by questions on reading comprehension, students found it very lengthy and exhaustive. Had these questions been substituted by those of verbal ability, it could have become easy for candidates to work on this section with greater speed. The break-up of the 40 questions is as : 
Reading Comprehension – 15 -20
Cloze Test – 10
Para formation Questions – 5 (with six sentences to sequence)
Grammar – 5 - 10

IBPS CWE Computer Knowledge : 

The questions in this section were reported to be easy. No great preparation was needed to tick these multiple choice questions. In fact, answers to a few questions could be worked out by looking at the various choices that each of these questions had. As compared to other IBPS exams, this section presented very little challenge to students. 
This section was reported to be easy in all the slots on 19th and 20th Oct 2013. 

In short all students opinion that the 2013 IBPS CWE examination was moderate difficulty level.  Question paper lengthy and time consuming

Directions :(19-2): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate while answering some of the questions.


The importance of communication skills cannot be underestimated, especially so, in the teaching - learning process. Teaching is generally considered as only fifty percent knowledge and fifty percent interpersonal or communication skills. For a teacher, it is not just important to give a lecture rich in content that provides abundant information about the subject or topic in question, but a successful teacher develops an affinity with, an understanding of, and a harmonious interrelationship with her pupils. Building rapport becomes her primary task in the classroom. But what exactly is rapport? Rapport is a sympathetic relationship or understanding that allows you to look at the world from someone else's perspective. Making other people feel that you understand them creates a strong bond. Building rapport is the first step to better communication - the primary goal of all true educators. Communication skills for teachers are thus as important as their in-depth knowledge of the particular subject which they teach. To a surprising degree, how one communicates determines one's effectiveness as a teacher. A study on communication styles suggests that 7% of communication takes place through words, 38% through voice intonation and 55% through body language. Much of teaching is about sending and receiving messages. The process of communication is composed of three elements : the source (sender, speaker, transmitter or instructor), the symbol used in composing and transmitting of the message (words or signs), and the receiver (listener, reader or student). The three elements are dynamically interrelated since each element is dependent on the others for effective communication to take place. Effective communication is all about conveying your message to the other people clearly and unambiguously. It's also about receiving information the others are sending to you, with as little distortion as possible. Doing this involves effort from both the sender and the receiver. And it's a process that can be fraught with error, with messages muddled by the sender, or misinterpreted by the reciepent. When this isn't detected it can cause tremendous confusion, wasted effort and missed opportunity. Good communication skills are a prerequisite for those in the teaching profession. Carefully planned and skillfully delivered messages can issue invitations to students that school is a place to share ideas, investigate and collaborate with others. Effective communication is essential for a wellrun classroom. A teacher who is able to communicate well with students can inspire them to learn and participate in class and encourage them to come forth with their views, thus creating a proper rapport. Although this sounds simple and obvious, it requires much more than a teacher saying something out loud to a student. They must also realise that all students have different levels of strengths and weaknesses.

  2. Other important point to note is that more preference is also given to maths and almost 20 questions came from it..mainly from Numerical Methods..


B. BEL Basic Civil engineering objective type questions with answers


1)  Define civil engineering?


Answer: Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings.Civil engineering is the oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and it was defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering.


2)  Define duty and delta?



Duty: Duty represents the irrigating capacity of a unit water. It relation between the area of a crop irrigated and the quantity of irrigation water required during crop growth. For example: If 5 cumec of water is required for a crop sown in an area of 5000 hectares, The duty will be 5000/5=1000 hectares/cumec.

Delta: It is total depth of water required for a crop during the entire period the crop is in the field and is denoted by Δ. The unit of delta is days.


3) Difference between pre-tensioning and post-tensioning?


Answer: The prestress in a structure is influenced by either of the two processes:

  1. Pre-tensioning
  2. Post-tensioning



Pre-tensioning is accomplished by stressing wires or strands, called tendons, to predetermined amount by stretching them between two anchorages prior to placing concrete. the concrete is then placed and tendons become bounded to concrete throughout their length. After concrete has hardened, the tendons are released by cutting them at the anchorages. The tendons tend to regain their original length by shortening and in this process transfer through bond a compressive stress to the concrete. The tendons are usually stressed by the use of hydraulic jacks. The stress in tendons is maintained during the placing and curing of concrete by anchoring the ends of the tendons to abutments that may be as much as 200m apart. The abutments and other formwork used in this procedure are called prestressing bench or bed. Section for Pre-tensioning Fig.1: Section for Pre-tensioning Most of the pre-tensioning construction techniques are patented although the basic principle used in all of them is common and is well known.




The alternative to pre-tensioning is post-tensioning. In a post-tensioned beam, the tendons are stressed and each end is anchored to the concrete section after the concrete has been cast and has attained sufficient strength to safely withstand the prestressing force. 


4)  What is piping failure?


Answer: Water that percolates through earth dams and their foundations can carry soil particles that are free to migrate. The seepage forces tend to cause the erodible soil or soft rock to move towards the downstream face of the dam. That is if the seepage forces are large enough and the pore spaces in the material are large enough. Along the unprotected discharge face AB, the soil will heave if the gradients are large enough. Every seepage discharge surface, both internal and external, which could be susceptible to piping or heave must be covered with filters that permit water to pass but will hold the soil particles firmly in place.


5)  How many express ways are there in India?


Answer: 23


6)  How can you measure the amount of rainfall?


Answer: Rainfall is usually measured by first collecting it in a rain gauge. These special drums are then used to record the depth of the water inside. Rain gauges are usually about 50 cm tall and are placed on the ground just high enough to avoid splashes. Rain water that is caught in a funnel on top, runs down into a measuring cylinder below – where it can be recorded.


7)  What are the diffent types of pile foundation?


Answer: Types of piles based on the mechanism of Load Transfer:End/Point Bearing Piles, Friction Piles, Friction cum end bearing pile Classification of Piles according to the Method of Installation of piles : Driven or displacement piles, Driven or displacement pile Classification of Piles according to Materials :Timber piles, Steel piles, Concrete Piles , Composite piles.


8)  What is quick sand?


Answer: Quicksand is a colloid hydrogel consisting of fine granular material (such as sand or silt), clay, and water. Quicksand forms in saturated loose sand when the sand is suddenly agitated. When water in the sand cannot escape, it creates a liquefied soil that loses strength and cannot support weight.


9)  What is the difference between bitumen and tar?


Answer: Bitumen is a mixture of organic liquids that are highly viscous, black, sticky, entirely soluble in carbon disulfide, and composed primarily of highly condensed polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Bitumen is the residual (bottom) fraction obtained by fractional distillation of crude oil. It is the heaviest fraction and the one with the highest boiling point. Tar is a viscous black liquid derived from the destructive distillation of organic matter. Most tar is produced from coal as a byproduct of coke production, but it can also be produced from petroleum, peat or wood. In British English, the word 'asphalt' refers to a mixture of mineral aggregate and bitumen (or tarmac in common parlance). The word 'tar' refers to the black viscous material obtained from the destructive distillation of coal and is chemically distinct from bitumen. In American English, bitumen is referred to as 'asphalt' or 'asphalt cement' in engineering jargon. In Australian English, bitumen is sometimes used as the generic term for road surfaces. Most bitumens contain sulphur and several heavy metals such as nickel, vanadium, lead, chromium, mercury and also arsenic, selenium and other toxic elements. Bitumens can provide good preservation of plants and animal fossils


10)  What is N-value?


Answer: A term commonly referred to as work hardening exponent derived from the relationship between true stress and true strain. Also called work strengthening exponent. What is hydraulic jump? A hydraulic jump is a phenomenon in the science of hydraulics which is frequently observed in open channel flow such as rivers and spillways. When liquid at high velocity discharges into a zone of lower velocity, a rather abrupt rise occurs in the liquid surface.


11)  What is Reynolds’s number?


Answer: A dimensionless number used in fluid mechanics to indicate whether fluid flow past a body or in a duct is steady or turbulent.


12) What is differential settlement?


Some settlement is quite normal after construction has been completed, but unequal (differential) settlement may cause significant problems for buildings.

The verbal part has the usual antonyms, synonyms, word usage and similar vocabulary based questions. Lastly, the reasoning section has questions based on blood relations, truth and lies, arrangement of objects and number puzzles. Generally the results are given within 2-3 hours, and successful aspirants are called on for the technical interview.

Technical Interview

In this round, students are asked questions based on the technical subjects that they have studied during their graduation. Make sure that you are thorough with all your subjects of all semesters, since the interviewer can ask you anything from anywhere. You should be prepared to face any question and answer it confidently. If you are lucky, the interviewer might ask you to pick your favorite subject from where you want them to ask you questions. Finally, the college project is queried about and questions are asked on it.

TCS Whole-Testpaper placement paper Question and answers

TCS recruitment process and aptitude test experiences

TCS Recruitment procedure is as follows:

  1. Aptitude
  2. Technical + HR Interview

TCS Aptitude (New pattern)


The new aptitude test will consist of 2 tests:

  1. Letter Writing
  2. Aptitude General

The Letter Writing will consist of words, frames to write a formal letter. The words given have to be used in the letter in the exact tense. There will be 10 minutes for this test.


Call-Mother-grandfather-pass away-urgent-leave-pending-10 days.

Write a letter to your boss to grant leave for you.

(This might look simple and short, but the actual test will have more words and the letter will have much more requirements.)

Note: This is the major eliminating test; most of the students will be rejected at this stage.

What you need to do?

  1. Be very direct and to the point.
  2. Don’t add unnecessary words.
  3. Proper grammatical usage.
  4. Simple English but proper business English.
  5. Proper Letter writing Format.
  6. Letter should be around 70 words (+/- 10 words).
  7. Adjust time, take 3-4 minutes to think of how to frame the letter. Next 5-6 minutes to type and correct the letter and in the last minute do a recheck of spelling, grammar.
  8. Do don’t include any word in between the phrase given.
  9. Don’t miss any word, phrase given in the letter.

Aptitude General:

This section will consist of 30 MCQ Aptitude Questions (Quantitative Aptitude + Reasoning).Time given for this test will be 60 minutes-80 minutes. I can’t remember the exact time duration.

Do’s and Don’t’s:

  1. Never for practice this test from R.S.Agarwal and associated books. This test will seriously deal with logical and analytical abilities of your mind.
  2. Choose any CAT Preparation material
  3. 1. Career Launcher
    2. TIME/Vistamind
    3. IMS

    4. BooksQuantum CAT by Sarvesh Verma, Arun Sharma (I personally feel  Sarvesh Verma book is much better than Arun Sharma only because it is short and sweet. It has all the important things that need to be known, all tricks, all samples, all formulae’s, just everything in a precise manner whereas Arun Sharma is also the same but has an enormous explanation to every topic.)
    5. One important book that I need to mention is Number System for the CAT by Nishit K. Sinha. This book only deals with Number System. This book will not only help you for TCS Prep but also for CAT prep if you think for a long run. This is because every aptitude exam will try to play a gamble between the student and the Number System Questions. This is the most unpredictable chapter in Aptitude and can have real tricky, awesome, difficult questions if you are not through with the basics. After reading this book you will analyze how less you knew before.

  4. This was all about preparing. You don’t need to solve all the problems from these books. But get through all the formulas and tricks given in the book, each and every especially in Number System and Geometry. Try to solve Level – 1 Questions from each chapter at first. If time permits go through the Level-2 Questions.
  5. Next and very important is to solve all possible TCS Questions from m4maths.com. It will have more than 3000 problems with varied difficulties. Take a day off, copy all the questions to MS Word, take a print out and solve them one by one. See the solutions. Most of us have uploaded the answers while we were preparing. ;)
  6. Don’t mug up questions, answers (It’s a request). Just know the flow in which the questions have to be solved and the pattern to solve the questions. Everything (the problem solving procedure) has to be at your fingertips on the D-Day.
  7. On the D-Day, be calm as much as possible. Just calm as ice. Don’t think of anything.

TCS Aptitude preparation requires time guys, so I tell all of you to take 3 months time and solve everything you can. TCS now recruits very less. I could clear the aptitude tests only because I forgot to be a human being for those three months. Could sleep for only 3-4 hours maximum and had to solve around 10k+ problems each day. Last but not the least I succeeded because on the D-Day for the first time in my life I was as chill as ice. We had 69 students in our department, and I was the only one to clear from my department. In my life I won’t forget the night, when the results were declared. We had 350 + students appearing from our college and only 52 could clear the tests.

So Keep Calm! Word Hard! Everything is Possible.


Tech + HR:

As I am from Electrical Engineering background, the technical interview was more based on projects, industrial trainings and so on. They asked a few C questions (Sorting) and few DBMS programs (Join Operation programs) so on and so forth. The HR asked me to do my SWOT analysis. Some questions on TCS’s background. Why I want to join an IT firm being from Electrical.

       It was one of the best interviews I ever gave but unfortunately got rejected, later I got placed in a better company. So, don’t get dejected at any time during the process. It all about believing in yourself and persevering the tough situations.


Good luck!!
