Whole-Testpaper |   5825



Hello everyone! I am VISHAL CHOUDHARY, 3rd year student of Department of ELECTRICAL & ELECTRONICS Engineering of BENGAL College of Engineering & Technology, DURGAPUR. We took part in joint campus drive by TCS at 31ST january.

As said by everyone here.. the question paper consisted of similar questions like the ones available over here. I did not feel there was a single question new that did not occur in a previous paper. I suggest everyone to go through all the papers they can and to solve questions rather then mugging up the answers because the values do change and some of the answers provided here were even wrong (very few though). If you can sove these papers, around 20 atleast, there is not really any need of solving RS Aggarwal for TCS atleast.

For the verbal section, please go through barron's high frequency words, model test papers and learn all the previous paper synonyms and antonyms, additionaly learn more words for the words already put up in past papers.

Lastly for critical reasoning do all the passages from Barron's 12 edition model test papers. My friends told that they had the same questions, some even had whole of the three passages as same. I did not go through many so i had only one same.. but i managed to solve the other two correctly.

For the written concentrate maximum on aptitude and then critical reasoning and lastly syn/ant in this order. but dont leave any because you never know they might put up sectional cut-offs.
in written dere is three section.those are written below..
1.Verbal((Synonym 10,Antonym 10, Reading Comprehension) 
Antonym -(5 Exercies 4m BARRONS 12TH EDITION)
Synonym -(Prepare all World list tests U Can leave Mix Test of Synonym & Antonym ) 

2. Quanta-All Qs were 4m privious papers……..so solve last yr papers…….. 

3. Logical Reasoning-There were 3 cases each having 4-5 qs……….all 4m barrons 12th edition u can leave cases having 3 or less than 3 qs……………..do prepare all cases having 4 or more than 4 qs 4m analytic test of 5 model test papers.
Some qs which I remebr are………………….
1) It was a Number series
4, -5, 11, -14, 22, ---
2) It was a word SENSATIONAL if you interchange 1st word with 2nd ,3rd with 4th n so on whta will be the 10th word from right..?
3) Find the singularity matrix from a given set of matrices(Hint det=0).

Ans a&c.(. product is 0)
6) which is power of 4 ?
a. 2052 b. c.4096 d. e.
ans 4096
7)Find the value of the 678 to the base 7.
8)one question like g(0)=1 , g(1)=2) g(n)=g(n-1)-g(n-2) find g(6)?
9)A power unit is there by the bank of the river of 900 meters width. A cable is made from power unit to power plant opposite to that of the river and 3000mts away from the power unit.The cost of the cable below water isRs.4/- per meter and cost of cable on the bank is Rs.5/-per meter. Find the total of laying the cable ?
10)A Flght takes off at 2 A.M from 32 N 40 E and travels for 9 hours to reach the destination which is at 12 N 50 W. Find the local time of destination when the flight reaches there? 
( soln : 1 degree =4 minutes.. Neglect the latitudes .. 40 - (-50) =90 degree = 90 * 4 =360 mins =6 hrs.....time of reaching = 2AM + (9 - 6){substraction as from east to west}hrs =5 A.M ans)
11) One curve problem was given ..
x y
0.99 0.001
9 0.9
99 1.998
999 3
If y = f(x) find f(x)?
Ans logx
12) . A 2D array is declared as A[9,7] and each element requires 2 byte. If A[ 1,1 ] is stored in 3000. Find the memory of A[8,5] ?
13) A can copy 50 papers in 10 hours while both A & B can copy 70 papers in 10 hours. Then for how many hours required for B to copy 26 papers?
Ans = 13
14) A = 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 0 1
B = 0 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 0
C = 0 1 1 0 0 1 1 1 0
what is (A U B)U C ?
ans : = 255

28)Some qs were of pie chart & bar graph so bettr 2 prepr it 4m RS Agrawal.

There was no –ve marking & sectional cutoff………but there may b uppr cutt off they won’t open the cutoff …be careful if u have done sufficient qs….then leave some qs…..never try 2 attamp whole paper correctly. 
There were 3 rounds……. 
Technical ,HR & MR……………but due 2 shortage of time they concluded d result in tech & HR only…….

Technical: In technical they asked me 2 make a program( I was asked 2 reverse my name) n then they asked about my subjs……………… technical round is very imp in TCS so be careful in this round……………………..
1)Do prepare 4 c N also some basic def of c( especially programing……..) 
2) Be thorough with the subjects u have written in ur resume.
3)Never try 2 make interviwr fool.if u don’t know d ans then bettr 2 apologise.
4)They were with d syllabus of recent sem.so prepare atleast basic definations 4m d subjs of recent sem…… I was asked some qs 4m each subj of recent sem.
5)If u r 4m electronics,Instrumentation or elecrtical……bettr 2 prepare u r branch subjs. As I m 4m EEE they asked me about ELICRICAL.
6)if u hv a gap plz go through basics of 12th like flemings rule,some chemical formula etc..
After clearing d technical.i was called 4 HR…….

HR :In HR they asked me about family back ground…….hobbies.how I utilize my hobbies………why tcs .etc………….
1) Some qs r common in HR.(like introduction………..whre u c ur self aftr 5 yr.why TCS……leadrship quality according 2 u n many more……………)but never mugup d ans of such qs…………only see d pattrn how 2 ans such qs……….n also prepare ur ans diff 4m othrs…..as they easily recognise d sme ans 4m each candidate.
2) In this round they chek ur confidence, communication skills, presence of mind & stress management………….
3) Always have a smile on ur face..n show feel good factor……..never show disinterest in ansring d qs.should always have eyecontect while ansring.
4) Very imp point .they may ask same qs in diff ways…….u should give d same ans each time…………………they asked me d same qs in my technical n HR (although both times interviewers were diff.).
5) If u r 4m a branch other than comptrs .then do prepare the ans 4……….why software???...............n why should we take u?????this qs were asked 4m most of the candidate of diff branch.
6) DO prepare basic information about tcs. (especially its vision mission n values……its CEO, chairman..company’s status. recent news about com……. etc).
7) Finally they asked me do u want 2 ask anything?......so DO prepare some qs 4 this..)
