    I'm Gourab Bhattacharyya from Asansol Engineering College , CSE, 2010 batch. I appeared for TCS at SJBIT in Bangalore on 21st August. TCS conducted their  off-campus for a month. On 21st August. I was called at 3.00 P.M and on that day more than 1000 candidates appeared and in my batch there is about 200 students. At 5.30 p.m. our aptitude started and on 7.00 p.m i got my result, that i was cleared. The aptitude on the next day i appeared for next rounds, i.e, for technical and GD. All the details are given below.


    Selection procedures:

    1. Aptitude test(35 questions in 1 hour)

    2. Technical interview

    3. GD


    TCS is now using the touchstone software for their online test.


    Aptitude section:


    There are 35 questions in 1 hour  as aptitude. For each wrong answer 0.33 marks will be deducted and for each right answer 1 marks will be given. Some of the questions are given below.


    Friends there is a trick of solving these questions. Don?t read the whole question carefully just see what they want and what are the data you need to give the answers. Don?t waste so much time for just 1 single question because you can get back to it after solving the easier ones.


    1. A scientist who is doing a research, found that color of skin of animals vary with change in distance. One day he started to chase a beer. He walked 1 mile towards north, then turned and walked 1 mile towards east and then he turned right and caught the beer and radio-ribboned the beer. Then he left the beer at that spot and returned to his base-station taking a turn(walked 1 mile). Then what was the color of beer at that spot?
    a) White  b) Brown  c) Black   d) Grey

    Ans: White(because in North and South pole baears are of white in colour).


    2. There is a problem on a race between a horse and a cat, after chasing so much the horse finally caught the cat when the sun already been set and the moon is in the sky. Some numeric value was given it?s easy just calcute the distance traveled by the horse and by that the speed of that cat. As I remember the Answer: is 66.67 m/sec(check it).


    3. After knowing how the fibbonacci series works two friends of a class tried to invent a new series and they took 3 and 7 as the first two terms. One day they ask you to say the next term on that series as you are also in the same class. What will be that term.

    3,7,7,25,15,  ,31

    Ans: 61  (here two series are merged 1st:3,7,15,31 and 2nd:7,25,61,)

    4. In a colony the municipality decided to number the houses and the shops. They want to number the shops with the numbers containing 3 between 1-100. The hoses are 10-20 flored and at the back of the house 8 feet is left for fire exit. How many shops can be numbered.  

    a.3   b.10   c.19  d.23

    Ans:19 (Just count the numbers containing 3 between 1-100).


    5. One question on calculation containg only operands and operators, just calculate it using calculator.


    6. One problem from average. Its easy.


    7. One from pipes and cisterns, it is also easy.


    8. The cost of making robot is divided into cost of material, cost of repairing and cost of painting in the ratio of 5:2:3. The cost used for material is 200. Find the total cost of making the robot?

    Ans: 400 (just calculate it).


    9. A tank fills in the squence of  10, 20 ,40, 80 (means 10 litre in 1 hr, 20 litr i 2nd nd so). IF at the 4th hour the tank is 1/4 full. When will it be full?

    Ans:6 (x/4=80

    That means capacity of tank is 320 litres. F rom the series we can see that in 5th hour it's 160 and then in 6th hour it's 320)


    10. What number should be used to divide 2880 into two perfect squares.

    a) 4    b) 5     c) 6

    Ans: 5 (easy calculation).


    I attended 22 questions out of 35 and 21 were  absolutely correct. So try to manage yo ur time for solving questions.
