TCS PAPER ON 14TH FEBRUARY,2008 AT KOLKATA

Hello everybody, I am Hritabrata Basak from Techno India, Salt lake, Kolkata in 3rd yr Electronics & Instrumentation Engineering. We faced TCS selection process on 14th Feb and 17th Feb. I am going to summarize it briefly.
Online Aptitude Test: ( on 14th Feb)
There were 3 sections...
1) Verbal (25 ques /// 20 mins)
2) Quantative (38 ques //// 40 mins)
3) Critical reasoning (12 ques /// 30 mins).....

u have to start with the verbal section first......its compulsory..........and after every time limit....the current section automatically vanishes and the next section comes in.............so keep and eye on the time...there is no upper/sectional cut off...and the total cut off is around 50-60%(for our college).... Mark All if there is no negative marking (we had none) .. And a small tip: the ?c? option is tentative ans for most questions.. so try ur luck with those unknown.

For the verbal part, I would suggest everybody to leave it on luck..... Practice from BARRONS GRE.. if possible. There were 10 synonyms, antonyms and 2 passages each with 5 ques apiece for our paper.

For the Quantative reasoning...i wud suggest. to  practice sums like...time and work, Ratio, Percentage, etc.....first try to attempt q/s that u know and can answer....And plzz c the prev papers.. they hav tendency 2repeat the same sums only wit changed data?

For critical reasoning i wud again suggest you to practice.....read the sum carefully and create blocks/graph to represent the sum....answer the q/s seeing the block /graph.... the problems are really difficult.. For us there are 3 paragraphs ( blood relation problem , visa problem)  wit 4 ques from each.. practice and try ur luck and u may get common passages and if possible mug up difficult ones while practicing.
Out of 357 candidates 243 were selected thru the aptitude test.
