The exam had three sets-X,Y,Z i got Z which was the toughest

Section A was english,

there was paragraph making which i cud not do it was very tough, so i guessed the answers and hoped atleast few hits the target the RC had a passage from pg 99 of barons,i had practiced all the barrons RC aand it helped .

I wud recommend the same for all as if u hv practiced the RC it saves a lot of time and TCS keeps repeating the RC from Barrons.Infact instead of remembering all the words from barrons its better to remember all the RCs as u will get 6 marks without wasting ne time whereas others may hv to waste 15-20 mins on RC

Aptitute was easy, just do ne previous yr question, they repeat the same questions again and again, infact just remember all the answers as i had done, i helps..............

And yes there were few wrong questions and u need not waste time on them

Critical reasoning was from 12th edition Barrons model test papers.......



1. toll brigde prob

2. red and brown marriage

3. All A's is B's......

THE interview from a cool affair......



1. First was tell me something abt urself:

Ans: 

 

2. write the code for bubble sort

Ans: wich i wrote

 

3. then he asked me whats function overloading, function overriding, function signature, virtual function....

4. difference b/w public,protected and private

5. diff b/w yagi-uda and normal anteena

6. B.W. range of  FM

7. what r cipher and encryption(my project was on nt security)

8. wats a IC

9. truth table of XOR gate and its apllication (ADDER ckt)

10. whats i/p bias current

 

the HR round was nothing as he just asked meaning of my name and my background and y i choosed Electronics

The results were out the nxt day and i was selected and so were 297 other students from my coll

 

MY ADVICE TO ALL WUD B TO REMAIN COOL AND DNT PANIC AT INTERVIEW.TCS GUYS ARE VERY FRIENDLY AND THEY TAKE BODY LNAG VERY SERIOUSLY,SO B SOBER BUT CONFIDENT AND YES SPEAK GUD ENGLISH
