Then they went on to FEA and modelling and simulation which were the electives that I took. I was not able to answer many questions correctly and clearly. But few answers I ansered well. Then they went on to my project. I answered almost all questions related to it clearly and correctly. Then they asked me to model a milling process. I tried to do it, but I failed. But the interviewer went on to the next question. He asked me to model an upsetting process. I took lot of time to think and I modelled the problem successfully. He assisted me when I started to answer it well. They asked me to explain how the process will happen, how the process parameters can be found out, how they can be related and so on.

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.

          Interview Process
          Test Technical Interview
          Round 1

          Test

          Duration
          90mins 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.(TECHNICA +HR INTERVIEW) to save time .
          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.
