    The exam had three sets-X,Y,Z i got Z which was the toughest

    section A was english,

    there was paragraph making which i cud not do it was very tough, so i guessed the answers and hoped atleast few hits the target the RC had a passage from pg 99 of barons,i had practiced all the barrons RC aand it helped .

    i wud recommend the same for all as if u hv practiced the RC it saves a lot of time and TCS keeps repeating the RC from Barrons.Infact instead of remembering all th ewords from barrons its better to remember all the RCs as u will get 6 marks without wasting ne time whereas others may hv to waste 15-20 mins on RC

    aptitute was easy,just do ne previous yr question,they repeat the same questions again and again,infact just remember all the answers as i had done,i helps..............

    And yes there were few wrong questions and u need not waste time on them

    Critical reasoning was from 12th edition Barrons model test papers.......
    1>>toll brigde prob
    2>>red and brown marriage
    3>>>All A's is B's......

    THE interview from a cool affair......
    1>First was tell me something abt urself:
    ans>blah blah

    2> write the code for bubble sort
    ans>wich i wrote

    3>then he asked me wats function overloading,function overriding,function signature,virtual function....

    4>difference b/w public,protected and private

    5>diff b/w yagi-uda and normal anteena

    6>B.W. range of FM

    7>wat r cipher and encryption(my project was on nt security)

    8>wats a IC

    9>truth table of XOR gate and its apllication(ADDER ckt)

    10>wats i/p bias current


    the HR round was nothing as he just asked meaning of my name and my background and y i choosed Electronics


    The results were out the nxt day and i was selected and so were 297 other students from my coll


    MY ADVICE TO ALL WUD B TO REMAIN COOL AND DNT PANIC AT INTERVIEW.TCS GUYS ARE VERY FRIENDLY AND THEY TAKE BODY LNAG VERY SERIOUSLY,SO B SOBER BUT CONFIDENT AND YES SPEAK GUD ENGLISH
