Here Goes My TCS Placement Experience
It was an online exam%u2026.
Test Consists of 3 Section Psychometric Test
Test on Synonyms and Antonyms (40 questions, 20 minutes:
Also Q’s on Sentence Completion).
Aptitude Test (32 questions, 40 minutes: General Questions on Mathematics).
Psychometric Test (150 Questions, 30 minutes: only if you Qualify in the above tests).
Details about How to Prepare for the above tests:
1. Verbal Ability:
This Test contains Synonyms & Antonyms…Almost all of them were From GRE BARRON’S 12th Edition & upward…30-50% of them will be repeated from previous TCS papers. Few Questions on Sentence Completion were also there..for these also refer BARRON’S.
NOTE: During the Exam..you should be careful..because on the computer screen the names Synonyms & Antonyms will be placed side by side so that we may by mistake choose an antonym instead of a synonym…so Be Careful..
2. Aptitude Test:
This test will consist of very general questions…This is the easiest section Compared to the Other Two. Almost 70-80 Questions will be repeated from the Previous TCS Papers…just learn the method from those papers..same model will be given..(This happened almost all the times). If you have time refer to any Aptitude book of your interest…it may be R.S.AGARWAL or any Other……
3. Critical Reasoning: Here Starts your Problems…30 Minutes…12 questions..don’t think that there is a lot of Time..these will be somewhat tougher those who has some touch with such kind..and will be Very Tough.. if you haven’t seen this kind before..so,you should have some practice relating this kind of questions… 3 paragraphs will be given.. 3X4.. 12 questions.. first 2 paragraphs will be some twisty questions… like our arrangements questions… routes between cities.. like that… and the last one will be on Data Interpretation…
You prepare Data Interpretation again from BARRON’S…. but the remaining from R.S.AGARWAL-Reasoning…. Or from Barron’s 13th Edition
4. Psychometric Test:
This test comes up only if you qualify in the Aptitude test… This test consists of 150 questions which we should answer in 30 minutes (of course, that much time is not required) Don’t think that this test has no weightage.. there is filtering in this test too… this test tests your psychology.. Remember among 150 many questions were asked again & again in a
variety of ways.. so don’t get trapped… be honest while attempting this test.. choose what you’re your heart says.. it will take you through the test..
This ends the Tests……
Now if you are Alive Even after All these tests….then you have to face a Technical Interview…
It may be on the same day of the Test. So be Prepared in Advance.
The Interview will be done by a Panel of 2 members…. No need to worry.. They will be Very supporting & Friendly.. First they ask us to Introduce ourselves… then they’ll go into your project details… don’t forget to prepare project…. They mainly concentrate on your project only…so be confident on every aspect of your project… then you should have some basic knowledge on C language. There will be some questions like “what is the o/p of this code?”, “what are the errors in the code?”..like that… so be prepared for all the basic concepts.. If needed you have to write some small codes too.. at the end they will ask some general questios like “Why TCS?”, “Where do you see yourself in the next five years?”, “do you have any questions?”, try ask some questions… it shows your interest in the Company..
Now if Chase this one too…. Then comes your Final Attack.. the HR Round… I many times heard that “I failed in HR round!”.. likewise anwers…. But you should not fail in it.. because it involves no technical questions… it just dwell into your innerself… so, be confident and frank while facing this round…They generally ask questions like “Tell about yourself?”, “Who r your role models?”, “What is your weakness?”, don’t say “I Have no weakness!”, just prepare a small weakness for yourself that causes no harm to your future…O.K.. “What is your mother tongue?”
if your Academic background is good.. be prepared to face some Techies here too….

Re: TCS Placements Experiences-TCS Written Test & Interview Experiences
hey frnds....even I recently attended a placement process of tcs at bangalore.
let me share some of the mantras which can help you getting through an interview....
Firstly, don't be so tensed. Please make sure you think "This is just an interview". Don't enter the interview room with a nervous face or this will definitely give a chance for negative things to overtake you.Just think that the interviewer is another good person and proceed with the conversation in a polite and steady way and no point of time and never make your "sub conscious fear" to overtake your "positive attitude".
Secondly, if you do not know the answer for any question then tell the interviewer frankly that you don't know the answer. This is the key and might be the deciding factor sometimes or in fact most of the times. When you were asked any question, be precise and try to answer only for that particular question and never give indirect answers. This will definitely impress the interviewer, if your answer is precise and CORRECT. Usually the trend will be in such a way that you will be asked questions, from the answers you give. So make sure whatever you give answer in such way that, you can tackle for the next question.
Usually in any interview there is a chance of more than 75%, that the interviewer would have just refreshed some technical concepts before the interview.So if your conversation and the way of answering the questions, is in such a way that if you take the take the interviewer into your zone of comfort, then you can easily predict what might be the next question, and can be comfortable. The best way to get used to these kind of situations is undergoing mock up interviews, as a part of placement preparation.
I hope these small tips will help you clearing an interview....all d best
