TCS Placement Paper Candidate Experiences UIT-RGPV, Bhopal-22 Jan 2010
Hello Friends !!!I am Prashant Somani pursuing BE in Information Technology from Thakral College of Technology, Bhopal . We had campus recruitment drive by TCS in UIT-RGPV, Bhopal . It was a pool campus and eight colleges from Bhopal participated in it.360 students from our college participated in the recruitment process 104 qualified the online test, 54 cleared the technical interview, 49 cleared the Management round & finally 45 cleared the HR round. I was one of them. It was one of the best days of my life.It was a four-day hectic schedule. On 22 January 2010, we gave the online test. Results came in the late evening. On 24 January 2010, we had the Technical & MR interview. On 25 January 2010, we had the HR interview & later that evening results were declared.Eligibility Criteria: The criteria is quite simple and most of the students fulfill it.
Selection Procedure: There will be four rounds but it might vary. The order is as given below but sometimes it might change like in our case we had MR interview after the technical interview & then HR round.
Online registration: As the first stage of the recruitment process, eligible students from college will have to register their information on the TCS portal to be able to participate in the TCS recruitment process.Eligible students have to upload their details on the TCS Campus portal, by following the instructions below.
Pre-Placement Talk: The TCS officials gave a presentation and told us about their company and services. Listen to this talk carefully. You will get the answers for?..Why one should join TCS ? What are the recent projects of TCS?....of course about salary and many more. You can ask genuine questions but do not ask anything stupid.Online Test Instructions: The instructions will be given by the TCS officials. Listen very carefully to the instructions. A silly mistake will prove very costly.
Red ? Not VisitedOrange- Visited But not attemptedGreen- Attempted
Cracking the test: Keep few things in mind for the online test.
Test Pattern : The exam is an online one with three sections. There will be no sectional cutoff so attempt all the questions. The pattern is same as earlier but this time TCS has changed the questions in the aptitude section.Verbal section: 32 Questions ? 20 Minutes Everything in this section will be from Barron?s 12 Edition. If you are starting your preparation at the last moment then just go through the five model test papers given at the end of Barron?s believe me they are more then enough.
Aptitude section: 38 Questions ? 40 MinutesThis time TCS has changed this section a lot. In our case, there were around 15 sets and there is no chance that your neighbor will get the same paper. Out of 15, only two sets were from previous year papers remaining sets had only 3-6 questions from previous year?s papers. This time they had concentrated more on data sufficiency questions, I got nearly 14 questions only on DS.This section is divided in to two groups. The first one has 30 questions mainly questions on data sufficiency. The second section has eight questions on data interpretation. Two parts comprising of four questions each. One is a passage and the other is bar or pie chart or both. It is better to answer these questions first because they are easy compared to other ones and as the time is not sufficient for answering all the questions.I am giving a general idea of the topic wise questions asked in my paper. It might vary in your paper.
Reasoning section: 12 Questions ? 30 MinutesThis is also another scoring section, time is more than sufficient. It consist of three passages with four questions each All the passages are always given from the five model test papers that are published in GRE Barron 12th edition. I recommend you to please solve them, so that it will be easy for you to attempt. Questions in my paper were:
Test Result: Online test result will be declared within an hour after the test. Once you clear the online test then there are three more steps to go. Most of the time interview is not on the same day & you will get time to relax and prepare for the interview. At the interview day, be ready with your folder having your resume, mark sheets & certificates.Interview Tips: Before going for the interview please, keep few things in mind.
Technical Interview: This is the most crucial round of the recruitment process most of the students are rejected from this round only. Be prepared with your core subjects, training & project details. If possible then carry your project report with you. In technical interview you might be provided with some blank sheets to solve questions use that sheet carefully & write everything neatly, your sheets will be attached along with your resume & technical round assessment sheet for the next round.There were around 15 panels. I had my interview in panel No.01 having a sir and a madam. My interview last for about 45 minutes and questions were mainly technical.
