  • Section 1: EMAIL WRITING
Interview Experience
Writing an email from the given phrases.

1. Being in Top 5 in your respective branch, you will have to face only 1 round (Verbal Ability (10 min): Writing an email from the given phrases).(ELIMINATION ROUND)



2. For all, 1st Round consists of 2 stages, first Verbal Ability (10 min) and second Analytical Ability (80 min). (ELIMINATION ROUND)



Don't take chance of misjudging Verbal Ability Round, as in my college 7 toppers were not able to qualify this round. The reason is not that this round was tough but you need to take care of the rules and you must know what is required and what is not while writing an email. This round is easy only when you know certain things about this round.
Interview Tips
1. Don't cross 100 words limit. This is not mentioned anywhere upto what word limit we can use. In case  you are crossing 100 words, you will get -20 score added in your overall score, this may lead you to below cutoff. So, Beware.



2. Use the phrases as given, in my suggestion don't change the tense of verb.



3. Start with Dear ABC, Respected Sir etc. and end up with Thanks and Regards.

2nd Day (10th October 2014):



It was 5 o'clock in the morning, I felt that there was no change in my eyes, in fact now the condition was worse as both eyes were infected. My roommate was just boosting myself at every moment. Instead of this, there were many times thought came to my mind that this may lead to rejection but positive hope always works and the only thing that is required - is to have full belief on yours, it really works.



I rushed myself to bathroom, took bath and ready for the college. At every moment I was keep motivating myself. I kept my all the documents and certificates. I took the breakfast and left the hostel. Before catching the bus, I found myself at the specs shop right there behind the hostel. I bought a black goggles from there with no reason to choice for me.

Reached College and sat in a big hall where all my friends were already there. Everybody given me a hazy look and asked for this kind that they never expected as it was just 24 hrs before they had seen me normally.



A volunteer came in the hall and announced that any 6 students can go to have their interview. I was not ready at that moment and decided to go in next round. Unfortunately, the call for next was just after 15 mins, as already stated I left the hall for the 1st round of interview. Took a deep long breath all the way before reaching the interviewer door.
Interview Tips
Plan your studies, like favorite subjects first and then other subjects. I prepared short notes on each subject. Just focused on basics of each subject. I went through following subjects C, C++, Core Java, PHP, DBMS, Mysql, MongoDB, HTML, CSS. PHP and DBMS were my favorite.

That was the moment, I sat calm for a minute, felt a kind of relief in my core of the heart from everything and forgot the past two days that were being so hectic and tough. I just said thanks to my parents, god, my teachers, my well-wishers.



The obvious reason for this happiness was because it was my life's first interview.

Interview Process

Round 1

Test

Duration
90 Minutes
No. of Questions
45 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: TCS placement process consists of two phases - Written Round (Analytical+ Verbal Ability Test ) and Personal Interview.
Interview Experience
Written round consists of Analytical Test and Verbal Ability Test. TCS has various criteria for skipping Analytical Test. If you are a geek ( in top five of a few stream like CSE/IT/ECE/EE/Mechanical ) then you will be allowed to skip the Analytical round. Also if you have at least 75% aggregate in 10th and 12th  and a minimum percentage marks in college ( This is set by TCS and varies from college to college, May be 8.5 pointer or 7.90 or as desired by TCS )   then you can skip analytical round. TCS is continuously changing its placement process so prepare for the worst and do not pretend that you can skip the analytical round even if you are a geek.If you are taking only verbal part then you will get ten minutes time and within this time frame you need to write an email based on the given scenario.
Interview Tips

Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: why do u want to move into IT
  • Question 2: wat do u understand by the term Networking
  • Question 3: explain the concepts of a router
  • Question 4: what is subnetting
  • Question 5: what are protocols
  • Question 6: what are static & dynamic protocols
Interview Experience
Personal Interview round consists of three phases i.e. T. R. + M. R.+H. R. .  So you will come across three person. If you are being interviewed by a panel of three person than you will have all the three interview in a single round. If you are being interview by only two persons than you will have to go through HR round only when you qualify the previous round. So this varies but you will have to go through all the three phases.
Interview Tips
In technical round you will be asked simple conceptual questions. Never ever show how smart you are because interviewer is smarter than you. Keep calm and be confident. If you do not know answer of any question, simply say no and do not proceed with half answers or wrong answer because they will trap you in your own answer.  In this round you will be asked question mostly from your CV. If you are a CSE/IT guy then never ever rely only on your CV. It entirely depends on the interviewer mind. If they do not see your resume then you will be asked question from any topic related to CSE/IT branch. So the idea is to prepare well for the subject and topic you have mentioned in your CV and also keep sound knowledge of other CSE/IT subjects.  This is what happened in my P. I. . They reviewed my resume but not even a single technical questions they asked related to the subjects or topics mentioned in my resume. So guys/gals be prepared and have a basic knowledge of important CSE/IT subjects ( Data Structure, DBMS, C/C++, JAVA, Operating Systems,  Software Engineering etc.) .   They do not go in depth of any subject and ask only basic questions. 
I do not remember all the questions they asked me, but a few are as above
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: why TCS
  • Question 2: why should i hire u
  • Question 3: wat do expect from us since u r a non IT candidate
  • Question 4: what are ur strengts & weaknesses
  • Question 5: any queries
Interview Experience
This round lets you know about TCS terms and conditions. They can ask you questions related to your family and other non-technical stuffs. Basically they check your communication skills and presence of mind. Even if you do not know the answer of a non-technical question, give answer in support of that. Here they may also ask you questions related to pre-placement talk so do not miss that one. Also do R & D on TCS and grab information about TCS  ( like C. E. O., M. D., Founder etc. ). If you have qualified the T. R. and M. R. round then you are almost selected. 
The most commonly asked questions in HR round are listed above. DO refer..

Dashmeet AnandFresherSelected
Application
I was interviewed on-campus at Vidyalankar Institute of Technology Mumbai for TCS
Interview Process
HR Interview Technical Interview
Round 1

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Tell me about yourself.
  • Question 2: Who is the founder of TATA?
  • Question 3: Why do you want to join TCS?
  • Question 4: Name atleast 5 other companies under TATA excluding TCS.
  • Question 5: Will you relocate?
Interview Experience
There were many different panels taking interview. Some had to go through series of interviews to get selected. But luckily I gave 1 interview only and so it was a combined Technical and HR interview. Firstly a panel was alotted to me in the morning. So I was waiting for my interview patiently. In the process I was getting tips from people who had already gone through the process. But at some time in the afternoon I was called by some different panel. I rushed there immediately. Asking the people around I came to know that they are here for HR interview and they had worst experience inside. I got very tensed. I was the last person in the panel. When my turn arrived it was already 4.45 in the evening. I knocked the door and they asked me to wait till they call me. I thought that they are checking my Facebook profile because I heard some rumors before. Then finally I entered. I greeted them and my interview started. Since the interview was combined, I was asked both technical and personal questions. They even asked me if I had lunch. I said no because I didn't get any time to have lunch. It was a nice gesture from them to offer me some biscuits. I gave my remaining interview eating biscuits. My interview was very positive and there were no double thought after the meeting.
Interview Tips
First and for most important, Do Your Homework well. You need to know about the company you are joining.
Don't act over smart. Be polite because you are not doing a favor to them by joining.
Be confident. Also learn to accept when you are wrong.

General Tips
Don't let the interview affect you mentally because the mental pressure will eventually degrade your performance.

Considering that this is the first and the last opportunity you will get for the job is also wrong as it will again reflect in your performance.

I cleared the interview because these things did'dm
Motivation for applying
It wasn't about motivation frankly. It was the first company that visited our Campus. So there was no other choice, but even considering the brand, TCS is one of the best Indian Multinational Companies.
Funny Moments
Funny moment was when I was asked to wait outside. All the rumors started flowing in my mind.

Secondly when I was offered a biscuit and the rest interview was more of a casual one than formal.

TCS Software developer interview

Rohit NaikFresherSelected
Application
I was interviewed on-campus at Terna Engineering College for Software developer role at TCS
Interview Process
Test Technical Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
90 Minutes
No. of Questions
50 questions
Test Sections
  • Section 1: TCS placement process consists of two phases - Written Round (Analytical+ Verbal Ability Test ) and Personal Interview.(TECHNICAL+HR INTERVIEW)
Interview Experience
If you are taking examination of both analytical and verbal part then you will get 10 minutes for verbal part first and then 80 minutes for analytical part. Even if you solve verbal part in less than 10 minutes the remaining time will not be added to your analytical part. Analytical part consists of 30 questions need to be solved within 80 minutes. You can easily navigate the question and exam environment is same as in TCS Open See Same. You will have an on screen calculator. You can also carry a calculator in examination hall. My suggestion is to carry your own calculator because on screen calculator will only waste your time.
Interview Tips
You can refer Quantitative Aptitude by Arun Sharma : This is the book for a CAT aspirants. Believe me if you solve LOD 1 and LOD 2, you can easily crack the analytical round. This is the sole book I used while preparing for TCS. Here you will get each concept explained beautifully. Read all the theory and solve example problems also. Do not rely on Quantitative Aptitude by R. S. AGARWAL
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: The technical round was followed by HR interview to save time.
  • Question 2: what is multithreading
  • Question 3: how is multithreading implemented in JAVA
  • Question 4: Does Java support multiple Inheritance? If not then how an interface inherits two interfaces? Explain?
  • Question 5: difference between DO-WHILE & WHILE Loop
  • Question 6: rate urself on 1-10 scale
  • Question 7: how wil you dispaly data of two tables? explain?
  • Question 8: why should i hire you
  • Question 9: why TCS
Interview Experience
I do not remember all the questions they asked me, but a few are as above. i hope it helps :)
Interview Tips
In technical round you will be asked simple conceptual questions. Never ever show how smart you are because interviewer is smarter than you. Keep calm and be confident. If you do not know answer of any question, simply say no and do not proceed with half answers or wrong answer because they will trap you in your own answer.  In this round you will be asked question mostly from your CV. If you are a CSE/IT guy then never ever rely only on your CV. It entirely depends on the interviewer mind. If they do not see your resume then you will be asked question from any topic related to CSE/IT branch. So the idea is to prepare well for the subject and topic you have mentioned in your CV and also keep sound knowledge of other CSE/IT subjects.  This is what happened in my P. I. . They reviewed my resume but not even a single technical questions they asked related to the subjects or topics mentioned in my resume. So guys/gals be prepared and have a basic knowledge of important CSE/IT subjects ( Data Structure, DBMS, C/C++, JAVA, Operating Systems,  Software Engineering etc.) .   They do not go in depth of any subject and ask only basic questions.
