    TCS PAPER ON 23rd SEPTEMBER   

    Hello..friends... after a month full of tension..i got selected to TCS.. like my written exam was on 23rd sep..interview was on 8th oct... and finally results came out on 23rd oct..
    Let me  post my  experience with TCS.....
     
    ok let me start....
     Written test:
     
    On 23rd sep..i had given my written test... I don?t want to speak much about written test....bcoz every body know abt that.. but let me clear some points to crack written test..
    1)      try to concentrate more  on verbal part rather than aptitude part..bocz everybody will clear apptitud part,it is some wat easy for any engineering graduate..
    2)      go through with barrons 12th edition ..for verbal part and critical reasoning part...
    3)      in critical resoninig..passages are directly from barrons.. so while solving reasoning passages in barrons.. remember answer as many as u can... bcoz I got two reasoning ques directly from barrons( like red brown marriage party group..  and that tunnel ..brigde.. abc.. cities problem) and I answered that two passages in less than a minute...
    4)       and remember synonyms and antonyms as many as u can....
    5)      Last but not the least... solve as many as previous papers u can.... 
     
    This much only I can say about written test.. next comes the crucial part of the selection process.. the technical interview....
     
    TECHNICAL INTERVIEW...
     
    on 8th oct ...I faced my technical interview...
     
    here "int" refers to interviewer....
     
    Int:  good morning.. Mr. Mahesh..
    Me: good morning sir..
     
    Int: ok Mahesh ... Tell me about urself..... 
    Me: I started   telling about my self...
            First I said my name.. my native place... my current location.... then I said abt my family background.... while telling these things.. i was bit tense...i didn?t said loudly...
     
    Int: wat r u strengths and weaknesses..??
    Me: now my tension was over.... now my voice was normal... I started telling about my strengths....

            I said...usually I aim high sir...I always aimed to get more than 80 % in my b.tech  and I study so as to achieve 80% .....
    Me:  again I said..I try to reduce the  difference  between WHAT I WANT TO DO...WHAT I WILL DO....!!!!

    Me: I said.... I always used to study so as to get 85 %  but even if I reached to 80 % mark..that will not be a problem.... but i try to reduce the difference.. ..
     now interviewer was  impressed... 
     
    Int: any weaknesses.. ???
    Me: I wasn?t prepared clearly for this ques.. I thought for a while and I said .. sir...i am very sentimental guy...
     
    Int: sentimental..??
    Me: yes sir... I am very sentimental..i take care about my family members and  my friends..
     
    Int: everybody will take care about their family members and friends, no???..
    Me: yes sir.. but I care more about them .... and I cant digest if anything happens to them..and some blah blah.......
     
    Int : ok Mahesh....
    Me: now.. I said about my technical skill wat ever I had given in my resume..
     
    Int : wats ur area of interest..???
    Me: i like to work...with C, Java and web technologies....
     
    Int: don?t say about programming languages.. say ur area of interest on any non programming languages...
    Me: i like Software engineering.... network security and cryptography.....
     
    Int: ok..wat r the phases in Classical life cycle model..???
    Me: I explained clearly with hand gestures.. I said..the phases are... Requirement analysis.. planning....designing.. coding.. testing....and maintenance.
     
    Int: for which phase it will take more effort..???
    Me: I don?t know it correctly.. simply I said designing..
     
    Int: designing  is it..???
    Me: not exactly...may be for coding.. and I said some blah blah blah....
     
    Int:  ok...wat is normalization...???
    Me: normalization is nothing but breaking large tables in to small tables so as to reduce the  redundancy of data... and normal forms are..... rules are to construct relations (tables) so as to reduce the problems like multi values....redundancy....functional dependencies...  and for faster query execution...
     
    Int: ok Mahesh...  tell me ur major achievements..??
    Me: I thought a while... and I said.... sir I maintained more than 80 % and I was among top three....in my tenth ,inter and B.tech.... those are my major achievements sir....
     
    Int :good Mahesh.. tell me something about TCS...???
    Me: I said whatever I had prepared on tcs... like I said some two to three statements about       tcs.... then....he interrupted me ....
     
    Int: Do u have any location preference....????
    Me: sir... joining in to TCS itself is a great thing.... I don?t have any location preference.... ..
     
    Int: ok.... do u have any questions...???
    Me: sir.. tcs is also in Research & Development  know...like wat type of research is going on in tcs..???
     
    Int: he explained clearly...research is going, on health care products.. multimedia....some blah blah blah......
    Me: ok sir...
     
    Int: ok..mahesh thank you.. now u can LEAVE.... u can see results @ our portal on 17th..
    Me: I was shocked about his statement...
                          (...   like if we cleared technical interview...then they say u can go for hr round and wait outside...if we r not selected.. they say ...now u can LEAVE..)
    Me: I don?t know wat happened....even I dint wished interviewer... and  went outside with blank face....
    Me: i thought I should ask ..where I went wrong..??? so I waited outside for interviwer..he came outside..
     
    Me: sir....wats my feedback..??
    Int: no Mahesh ..we cant reveal ur feed back..
     
    Me: then..where I went wrong sir...???
    Int: I didn?t said  u went wrong anywhere.... 
     
    Me:  then wat about my hr round...??
    Int: Mahesh.... That round was a combination of all..(technical...and HR....)
     
    Me: then a big smile on my face... I said ok sir..
    Int: don?t worry....u can see ur results on 17th oct at our site....
    Me: ok sir....thank u .... thank u very much sir....
     
    Then I went outside with enormous joy... And I met some people who were interviewed by the same interviewer....they said...they also had one only round... then I was so happy..then I was very confident about  my job....
     
    To know my result.. I waited 15 more days with full of tension... eagerness.. confidence..
    (first they said results will be  on 17th oct ..but they postponed it to  23rd  oct ..)
     
    So finally the much awaited 23rd  oct came.... and I saw my name on the final selection list..i was very very very happy....(like more than 2000 people appeared for interview...but they shorlisted  600+ people...  some wat bad na....)
     
    Ok friends..... That?s my journey to tcs.... now I am eagerly waiting for my joining date...
    I heard that tcs people take minimum of three months to give joining date.... Ok let me wait... wish me to get my joining date as early as possible.... .
