TCS PAPER ON 24th MAY
hi frens, i feel so pround n happy to say that I m placed in TCS. i want to share my experience wid u n i hope this will help u to get through.
first about the written test.TCS conducts an online test.The first section is verbal section...it contains 10 synonyms, 10 antonyms, a comprehension.. .and a passage containing blanks to be filled up by sentences. All the questions of this section are from Barron's GRE, but i would advice not to mug up everything coz attempting all the questions may b a cause of rejection. I hadn't even touched GRE before..i knew only 2 words rest i made all guess works in this section..where as my frens who had learnt the high frequency word list of GRE attempted all the question n thus couldnt get through.
The second section is Quantitative and its very easy.You can get the previous papers from sites as vyomworld.com or placementpapers.com, these questions are repeated every year.
The third section is of critical reasoning.This section has 3 questions of reasoning.Its a tough section, but here also questions are from Barron's GRE.Practice solving problems in this book n u will crack it.
DONT ATTEMPT ALL THE QUESTIONS EVEN IF U KNOW..THIS MAY LEAD U TO REJECTION.TCS TAKES AVERAGE STUDENTS.
NOW ABOUT INTERVIEW:
Interview of TCS has 3 rounds, n each round takes around half an hour.I must say TCS guys are very friendly, they will make u feel very comfortable.
TCS team is famous for takng late night interviews..my turn came at 4 in the morning.
