hi friends
i m deepak kumar...TCS came 2 our college on 6th january for the online aptitude test .
Total 210 students gave apti and 138 got selected in aptitude n Finally 62 gt placed in TCS.
Aptitude test consisted of 3 sections:
three sections,
Sec-1 ->English section Time-20 Mins 32 questions
        10 synonyms & 10 antonyms
        big comprehension
        sentence completion with too many options in one passage.
        Hardly 6 synonyms n antonyms i was knowing correctly though i had learned all the

        previous yrs papers and barrons model test paper.It generally doesn't happen.It was my hard       luck.so i preferred eliminating the options to reach 2 correct option. 
Sec-2->Quants section Time 40 Mins 38 questions
       This is the most scoring section. I got almost all questions correct in this section upto
       question 32.I dint see last 33-38 questions of DI before.I thought there is only 32 question
       but managed 2 do rest in last 2 minutes.In this section 90% questions were from previous
       yrs papers.So be prepared with time management.Dont do mistakes lyk me.

Sec-3->Analytical Reasonong Time 30 Mins 12 questions
      This the most toughest section...three reasoning set each containing 4 questions(4*3=12
      ques total).But to me it seemed very easy.All the sets were from GRE Barron's model test
      paper only with same sequence of questions.i mugged up all.So i took hardly 5 min for all
      12 questions.
So go with the GRE Barrons 12th edition's model test papers(all english n reasoning section).

Our interview was to be held on 8th january.So i got xtra time 2 prepare for interview.
I was very much nervous before going to my interview panel bt as soon as i entered room i kept
myself cool.My interview started at 3.30 pm

HR:u r having 2 yr gap.why so?
me:sir,being a bright student thru out my life i was sure of cracking IIT jee after preparing
   for 1 yr.so dint fill other forms.i dint keep plan B that time.After that mistake i learnt one
   should always be ready with plan B.so i had no option other than to drop.Next yr i filled all
   forms n got admission in this clg thru AIEEE.With that mistake i always go with 2 options in
   my life now.I was trying to answer this question in company's favour only.so be prepared if u
   have gaps.

me:no sir.
HR:why?evryone is going for CAT.why not u?
me:sir,i studied the BASIC language when i was in class 7 n had developed a racing game in class 9.i had thought of becoming a software engineer that time only.i took computer science as fifth paper in class 11 though evry1 was against it as it required same labour as required in PCM.but  i managed all.then i took CSE branch though ECE seat was vacant in same college.And my dream ofsoftware engg is going to be fulfilled in 6 mnths,how cn i change my field all of a suuden.Engineering wud prove worthless to me in that case.
HR:ok....u may go now.

i was one of them when the result was declared......
Hope 2 see u in TCS.....
