4) Favourite subject

Tell about yourself. (simply introduce urself)

Resume plays a big role here. So be sure about what you have written in your resume each & every word .

3) Managerial Interview

This can be simply HR + technical..
1st again introduction

What is the diff. between other companies & TCS which makes TCS your preference?

Resume plays a big role here as well. So be very sure about it.

4) HR

This is the easiest round but be careful about it, as this is also an elimination round. One small mistake & you can be rejected. Just be confident & honest thats all.
Again my introduction
Why i wish to join tcs? or why tcs is a preference?
Where do i stay?
My family background
Whether i m willing to relocate ( esp chennai) or not?
Any year gap? Reason for it?
Any questions?

At the end of this very round, i was told that i have been shortlisted & i may leave for the day. I got the mail confirmation after a week. After clearing this process, it really felt like the hard work was paid for & was worth it.

It does not matter how many students are selected out of how many.

Thats it.
Thanks &

ALL THE BEST TO ALL OF YOU !!
