    Hi friends, We had TCS for campus recruitment in our college last week and I was one of the fortunate ones to get selected in it.
    The recruitment consists of 3 parts:
    1. Aptitude Test (Time limit 90 minutes)
    The paper consists of 3 sections.
    1. Verbal
    2. Quantitative
    3. Critical Reasoning

    VERBAL (30 Q)
    For verbal, go through the papers given in freshersworld. Most of the antonyms and synonyms are repeated from selected list.
    RCs are asked from GRE barron?s 12th edition. But even if u don?t go through it, its okay because I feel they are not that tough. But do RCs only at the end. Don?t waste your time for it in the beginning.
    Some of the synonyms asked to me were:

    Musty = stale,
    Galleon= ship,
    Garrulous= talkative,
    Brochure= pamphlet,
    Candid=  outspoken,
    Regal= royal, 
    Inter = Relate, 
    Repudiate = reject,
    Chimerical= fantastic

    Some of the antonyms asked were:
    Credit X believe false,
    Quixotic X pragmatic,
    Admonition X commendation,
    Precipitate X Dilatory,
    Omniscience X Ignorance.,
    Precipitous X  Cautious  ,
    Protract X shorten

    In case of quantative also, go through the papers in I m also mentioning the commonly asked questions. Remembers if u go through atleast 10 papers it would be very easy to crack the apti as it has repeated questions. But do take care that some questions might have some variations.Some of the questions are:

    *. A Venn diagram was given and 3 questions were asked on it. Just understand the problem carefully and solve it (only addition, subtraction and multiplication and division required)

    For this u need to go through 5 model test papers of GRE barron?s 12th edition each having 2 sections of critical reasoning. Do go through it as the questions are taken from these papers.

    I was nervous during this interview. I entered the room and a mam was seated there. She asked me to sit down. She began as usual by asking questions like Introduce urself. Then she started asking about my project done during semesters. Her half of the questions revolved around my project only.

    She asked me about:
    1.Exceptions in java script
    2.What wud happen if connection fails in the project given to user ( My project was to prepare website using VBScript and javascript)
    3.How did u use javascript in ur project.
    4.Which database did u use to store information
    5.In ms access how would u go to the first record from last record
    6.Do u know java. Whats the difference betwn C++ and java
    7.What is interface, abstract class. Diff between them
    8.How does exception catching work in java
    9.Is it necessary to have catch block with try block or not.
    10.Is the command System.Exit(0) possible

    Apart from these she asked many questions. I answered most of the basic questions but after answering them she would ask questions in detail and deeper one. In most of them I had to say ?Don?t know?. After that in the end she asked about my hobbies and asked questions related to them..I was nervous after that also as I didn?t knew whether I would qualify or not. I had answered the basic questions but not the tough ones. Within 5 minutes my name was announced for the HR interview.

    In HR the panelist was very friendly, warm and cool.
    Q. how was ur day?
    A. fine till now.
    Q. till now???
    A. yes sir
    Q. then how can I make it finer?
    A. If  u select me sir (he started laughing)
    Q. And if I don?t?
    A. then I wud be disappointed
    Q.For how long that disappointment stay?
    A. for 2-3 days my friends and family wud console me.
    Q. So it means u r dependent on others. U cant tackle your own problems?
    A. No, sir this is a general tendency of human beings. When someone else comes to help u the healing power is much faster compared to the fact that u console urself
    Q. Suppose I give u a project. When u r about to complete it and all of a sudden user changes requirement then wat will u do?
    A. I would ask for an extended timeframe and make a new project as per their requirements.
    Q. And if the user again changes his requirement when the project is about to end?
    A. I wud ask for a fixed requirement and request him to be clear on that.
    Q. If suppose he gives that and again he changes his requirement in the same way as earlier then what?
    A. Then I would not be able to keep on working as per his criterion as other projects are still there and they cant suffer due to one project.
    Q. But this is a normal thing in IT industry. Users keep on changing his requirements everytime in the projects.Now tell me what will u do then.
    A. In that case I would provide them the project we have prepared for the time being. And then we would keep modifying the project slowly so that in the end user gets what he wants but still is using at the same time.
    Like these he asked many questions and tried putting stress on me. It may have happened some of my answers might not be completely accurate but important thing is trying to present what u believe in and try to justify ur points. But please don?t bluff. He also asked about my projects (but in brief), seminars, future plans etc

    After HR was over, we had to wait till the evening. In the evening they announced the names, I was one among them. Out of 220, 81 cleared written test. Out of 81, 46 got through Tech and finally 33 were selected. I hope u all get some benefits from my experience. Hope to c u in TCS.
