    Hello Friends,

    I am Chandresh Mishra, I am a ECE student from N.I.E.C LKO, 2010 BATCH. I was selected in the off-campus drive of TCS on 21 August 2010 at SRMCEM LKO.

    There were 4 rounds.

    1.    Online Written test

    2.    Technical interview

    3.    HR round

    4.    MR round

    Written Test:
    The paper was online. It consists of 35 questions in 1 hour. TCS has opted a new pattern for the written test. There were no verbal questions, all were quantitative aptitude questions. The questions were lengthy 6-7 lines. But upper lines consist of irrelevant data, only last few lines consist of important data required for solving the question. There was negative marking for each incorrect question and calculator was allowed.
    For preparation you can refer quantitative aptitude by R.S. AGGARWAL.
    Chapters( Probability, Problems on Ages, Pipes and Cisterns, Ratio and Proportion some logical questions, blood relations, percentages, profit-loss, area, direction sense, average, numbers, time & work ,time & distance, prob on train, boat & stream ,allegation & mixture, simple interest)
    Tips to crack written test:
    1.    Be cool, don?t get irritated to see long questions or if you are unable to solve any question.
    2.    Skip the question if you are unable to solve it in 10-12 section. you can come back to that question at the end.
    3.    If you have not sufficient time, first read the last line of the question, if it is numerical based, then read only numerical data, leave first few lines.
    4.    Don?t make guesses.

     Result declared after 30-40 mins, after that there was interview of selected student. There were many panels for taking interview.
