hi friends..... m vikas singh from Madan Mohan Malaviya Engg College Gorakhpur (U.P.) TCS visited our campus on 18-19 feb .Out of 146 candidates 74 cleared the written test and 50 students are finally selected and i was one of them by God grace. there were mainly two round , first was written test and then interviews. Wriiten Test: it consist of 3 sections 1)verbal section : there are 32 questions (10 antonym,10 synonyms,1 RC consist of 6 questions,1 paragraph with 6 blanks),20 mins are there for this section . this section was really very tough.1 or 2 question were only from barrons.so read only 750 words(50 exercises). but no need to worry i was able to do only 4-5 questions in that. but u have to solve other two sections very carefully and try to score 80-90% in these sections. 2)quantitative aptitude: this section was very simple.no questions from previous year.many questions are from data sufficiency . 6 questions are from data interpretation ,these are very simple . solve examples of RS Aggarwal.u have to be very fast in this section as 38 questions in 40 mins.try to score 32-35 questons in this section .i have done around 35 questions in this sections . 3)Logical reasoning : there are 3 questions in this part and each question consist of 4 subquestions so total 12 questions and time for this section is 30 mins.some questions are from 5 modal test paper of barrons 12th editions but it depends also on ur luck because everybody has diffrent paper and some got directly from barrons and some only 1 or 2 questions .u can score approx 100% in this section . first try to solve them and after solving mugg up all the LR which have more than 4 questions in model test papers. no need to mugg up or solve those LR which have 3 or less then 3 questions .i was able to solve all the 3 LR .in my paper 2 are direclty from barron so i have done these 2 in 2 mins.meine ratt li thi yaar.and another was very simple. after all u have to give ur best in two sections atleast. do all the questions there is NO negative marking .if u dont able to solve the question then tukka maardo but never leave that question for last because time ka tumhe pata hi nai lagega. after wriiten test there was technical interview. Technical interview : in this interview they ask about ur area of interest, projects and language like C,C++. in this interview they also ask the hr questions . it also depends on ur luck that which pannel u got.some pannel are very cool and some pannel are very strict. this time they focus on STRESS interview.they scold the students very much.but never loose ur confident.they mainly check ur confidence level. u have to prepare ur area of interest very well ,they ask only basics and very simple questions.they can also ask some basics of another subjects but only simple questions so no need to worry.dont worry about java or other language if u dnt know these then simply say that before joing TCS iwill learn these and m concentrating on my core part and areas of interest currently.but u should have good command on C and one of the OOL like c++ or java or .net etc(Only for cs & IT students )other branchs sud concentrate on C and there core. prepare ur project well (this project may be of 2nd , 3rd , or final year)this is not mendotry that u have to mention ur final year project but u sud know ur final year project.
