    TCS Recruitment Rounds
    a. Written Exam
    b. Technical Interview
    c. HR Interview
    d. MR Interview
    TCS visited my college during 23-25 of July 08.On the first day we had the written exam. But unlike the previous exams no question was repeated in the verbal and quantitative section.In critical reasoning out of 3 problems 2 were from the five model test papers of barron's 12th edition.

    Verbal round
    No word from high frequency list.As i didn't prepare for this section my 95% synonym and antonym were wrong..I did the reading comprehension and fill in the blanks seriously.

    Quantitative round
    Questions were of easy-medium level,I did it well but was not able to complete the section due to the fracture in my hand.

    Critical reasoning
    2 problems were repeated from barrons model test paper,12th edition and 1 was new.
    I was not very much sure about clearing the test bcoz of the verbal round(the cut-off is predefined) , but finally i got through.Out of 340 that appeared in written test 176 were selected.

    Technical Interview
    I had only revised C and how motor works(I m in EEE branch) but I was confident, although some of my friends had around 5-6 subjects in thier hands.Even I was thinking what to say about my favorite subject,as this is the most commonly asked question in TCS interview. So, finally my turn came up there were 2 interviewers on my panel.
    Me:- Good afternoon Sir, good afternoon ma'm.
    After seeing my resume both the interviewers started underlying some of the points in it.
    int1:-have a seat.(never take a seat before their permission)
    int1:-What happened to your hand. (Actually I had a fracture in the elbow of my right arm ).
    Me:-told them
    Int:1-introduce yourself
    Me:-introduced (native place, family background, hobbies, interests etc.)
    Int2:-Did to listened the Rahul gandhi's speech (Since i mentioned newspaper reading as my hobby)
    Me:-No ma'm as I was busy in preparing for the interview. (don't ever lie)
    Int1:-Explain your projects
    Me:-Explained them in nutshell in 3-4 min.
    Int1:-Asked me to write a program in C
