    Hi friends,  This is Shirfule Gangadhar Madhavrao selected for TCS in first attempt, completed MCA from AIMS ,Bangalore,Basically I am from Nanded  Maharashtra .I am very happy to share my experience with freshers world web visitors.I think the information I am giving below will be very helpful to all who are going to attend for TCS Campus Selections. Our off campus examination held on 6th Oct, 2007.

    The written test consists of three sections and the important thing is there ll be online test and be careful while filling  the answers.


    The three sections are

    1. Verbal section

    2. Aptitude

    3. Critical Reasoning


    1. Verbal section:

    It consists of
    Synonyms of 10 marks
    Antonyms of 10 marks
    Comprehension passage of 5 marks
    Sentence completion of 5 marks  

    Verbal section consists of 30 questions and must be completed in 30 minutes. So be careful.  

    Most of the synonyms and antonyms are from GRE Barron's  (GRE High Frequency Words) and prepare it well in addition with the root words in the GRE Barron?s. (exercise also).  

    The comprehension passage I didn?t remember but it is a very big passage that is very difficult to read and understand but time is very short .So I suggest that don?t spend much time on comprehension passage . And My luck was that passage was also came from Barrons book only. So please go through GRE Barrons 12th or 13th edition.


    2. Aptitude section :

    In aptitude section there are 33 to 36 questions for 40 min. All the questions are from previous papers only.So please go through previous papers which is available on  


    3. Critical Reasoning:
    The critical reasoning questions are from GRE barons (12th edition/13th edition) model test papers. In this section there are three questions in which each consists of five sub questions. So for this section also go through GRE Barrons . Read all the reasoning section which is available in that book.

    For me,,,, I was not sure about first two section but in critical reasoning I solved All 13 question & all questions were correct. So if you are not getting then directly Mug Up......

    After written test, they told me our result. they will display the result  on tcs site & they posted the result on 16th Oct. And I got cleared the Aptitude round. they called me for an  Interview (means for next round) on 27th Oct,2007.Totally 3 rounds are there namely:-
