Whole-Testpaper |   10803



Hi friends i m going to supply each and every information about TCS selection procedure, which i faced recently. If u  have any query u can even call me at 09932906372, i will b always there to guide u........as i know & understand the value of proper guidance in case of TCS.


Firstly there will b a PPT(Pre Placement Talk) by TCS executives ,pay full attention at PPT & write down the important facts & figures about TCS as it will b help full in HR, then the aptitude test will start.

Exam Pattern ::1>Aptitude Test
2>Technical Test

3>HR Test



My aptitude test was online. Ther is no need to panic ,its very simple. There was no sectional cut off & no negative marking. Time was fixed for particular section, once the time for one section is over u can not return back to it or change the answers for that section’s can change the answers in a particular section in the time limit provided for that section, for example u can change the answers of English section in the time provided ,first 20 minutes but after that u can not, as after that quantitative section will come automatically.


 It has 3 sections:-
1>English -(time-20 minutes)-(10 synonyms + 10 antonyms + 8 fill in the blanks + 1 passage)
2>Quantitative -(time-40 minutes)-(38 questions)

3>Critical Reasoning -(30 minutes)-(3 reasoning passage)



In case of English, the paper was very very standard. Most of the antonyms & synonyms were really new ,i mugged many but it didn’t helped me allot, but i will also suggest that go through different paper like mine one. U have to use urIQ to solve most of them, i will suggest don’t waste extra energy on mugging up anto. & syno., but ya mug up the common ones.

# Synonyms & synonyms:-

Most of the words were new, so i don’t remember, but still what i remember i will write, do both antonym & synonym of the word ...




I really don’t remember……….


i have a list of most frequent asked  words , if u want , I can give it to u  by mailing it to ur ID 


# fill in the blanks It was really tough, i really don’t remember, but don’t worry much as there r many set of paper, u may get a easy one, as told by friends that few of them got easy ones.


# Passage

It was a psychological type passage,(but NOT psychological paper) i read all the passage of Barron but it was not from that, so b prepared.

19>An aircraft takes off from A (89o N Lat , 20o E ) at 6.00 AM local time to B (50o S , 40o W ). If the flying time is 10 hours what is the local time of landing at B?

 Don’t worry for N,S.E & W  it does not matters .

1o change == 4mins
Here 20 o+40 o=60 o
So 60*4=240 mins……4hrs
If time change not considered ,then after 10 hrs it will reach at the same palce after 6:00+10:00=4:00pm

(if plane is going frm west to east then then Add those hrs)

So friends this section is almost same every time, only the figures r different,. i think this was the section in which in which i was most sure & confident.



Just go through Barron’s 12th edition, most of the reasoning were from that book. In that book at last 5 model test paper r given , solve reasoning from it , its enough, if u can’t understand the reasoning just mug up the answers  



My Technical & HR was combined, as i m from Electronics & Communication department so i prepared two of my subjects firstly Digital electronics and the second one as Tele communication. In computer field i did C & Data Structure only.

Then i was called...............

I opened the door and took permission to come in..............


ME> Sir, may i come in?

HR>come in.

HR> sit down

ME> thank u Sir


Then i forwarded my file 

HR>what is this?

ME>Digital electronics.

HR>can u draw a JK flip flop?

ME>yes Sir ....(then drawn)

HR>Explain it?


HR>can u draw Integrator Op-amp?

ME>(drawn but not fully correct)
