    Hi guys,
                 I m Vignesh, a B.E graduate from Electrical and Electronics Engineering stream. TCS came to our college as ON-CAMPUS Recruitment drive on January 30 & 31. Our college staffs and placement officers said that the selection procedure comprises of 3 rounds- Written test, Technical interview and HR interview. A week before the interview our college arranged a placement programme from 'Productivity Reach'. They visited our college and taught us how to clear the written test by solving many previous year question papers of TCS and some possible questions. They also taught how to face an interview.
                 This training programme was really useful. It helped us a lot.Then we started preparing for TCS. We joined as a team of 4 in our hostel room and prepared for the written test. My friends Anand, Andu and Jaisundar really helped me a lot in solving the APS. "I have to mention them." The written test was conducted on 30th January. It was an online test.
                 The question pattern  for us comprises of
    Section A- VERBAL REASONING-10 SYNONYMS + 10 ANTONYMS + SOME COMPREHENSION like FILL IN THE BLANKS.(20 MINS)
    Section B-  QUANTITATIVE APTITUDE- 36 QUESTIONS(40 MINS)
    Section C-  LOGICAL REASONING - 12 QUESTIONS WITH 3 PARAGRAPHS AND 4 QUESTIONS IN EACH.(20 MINS)      
                 The training programme guys said that there would be DUMMY questions in written test which should not be answered. There would be about 5 dummy questions in each question paper, of which only 2 questions at the most can be answered. Answering more then that can cause your paper can be disqualified. A dummy question is a question which has no answers even if solved correctly.
                 We completed the written test. The time was more then enough for Sections A & C.But for the quantz section there is no time. I rushed up and the last 15 were answered randomnly. Finally I answered all the questions. Only then I came to remember that there would be dummy questions. I was upset. But to my surprise I came to know that my name was shortlisted. About 180 of us attended the written test. Only 14 of us were shortlisted. Unfortunately 3 of my friends were not shortlisted. Then the next day was HR. I started preparing for it.
                 I had Digital Logic Circuits and C,C++ as my Area of interests. I worked on that. I also went through my project work. The next day we were called upon. I didnt have a sleep the previous night. I went to the INTERVIRE ROOM. They asked some questions regarding my hobby. I was unable to answer. They asked questions in my core field and some simple programs in C. I answered the C programs but could give the right answer in my core field. They were not satisfied with my performance. I understood that clearly. The results were announced. Only 10 of them were selected. My name was not in that.
                Recently i attended another TCS interview held on August 15, 2010 at VEL TECH MULTI TECH COLLEGE in Avadi.Here the written test comprised of 35 questions with 1 hour duration. I along with my friend Vallinarayanan prepared for the written test for 4 days with previous year questions and R.S.Aggrawal book for Aps. The written test was quite easy. There was a negative marking of -.33 for every wrong answers. So I made sure that all the answers I made were correct. I answered only 24 questions, but knowing all of them are correct. i m cofident of getting cleared in the written test. I was shortlisted. Then the HR interview was very similar to the one I faced 6 months ago. The result was also similar. I was not selected.
    So friends here are some tips to clear the TCS interview:
    1) Get well prepared for the written test with topics like Percentage, Ages, Probablility, Profit & Loss, Numbers from R.S.Aggarwal Aps book. Also go through G.R.E.Barrons and previous Q papers.The 35 question pattern will be easy than 72 QP. But the questions will be long and many unwanted data will be given.

    2) Make sure you read them carefully and solve them quickly as possible.
    3) For facing the Technical & HR round you need to be strong in what all you have mentione in your C.V.
    4) Make sure you prepare well for that too. I didnt prepare for Technical round. So you dont do that. Make sure you are strong in your area od interests and in your projects.
    5) Take ample rest before attending the interview. Sleep well. Be COOL AND CONFIDENT. You will surely get it.
    ALL THE BEST!
