TCS Placement Paper Whole Testpaper JUIT Waknaghat -19 Feb 2008
TCS PAPER ON 19TH FEBRUARY,2008
Hello, Friends I am Vijay Sharma pursuing my B.Tech. in Computer Science Engineering form Jaypee University of Information Technology (JUIT) Waknaghat Distt. Solan H.P. Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) team of around 40 people visited our campus on 18-19 Feb for campus placement. It was a combined placement for our university and Jaypee Institute of Information Technology (JIIT) University Noida U.P.
On the behalf of my university students I would like to thank the freshersworld team for their work as well as all those people who contributed the papers because those were very helpful for the preparation for TCS.
I would like to share my experience with other people who are preparing for the TCS as think that that will be helpful for the entire upcoming visitor who want to prepare for TCS. The recruitment procedure for TCS consist the following four rounds:Online TestTechnical InterviewH.R. InterviewM.R. Interview
Ø ONLINE TEST : Online test was conducted for JUIT students and for some branches of JIIT students on 18 Th Feb. and for remaining branches of JIIT on 19 Th Feb. The test started around 10 A.M. without any pre-placement session. You will be given Login Id and password. Firstly there was a sample test and instruction for the test. They will also give instructions orally so listen carefully everything. The TCS people will be all time there during the test so for any clarification ask them for a help. Remember that: · There is no negative marking. · No higher cut-off. · There was no section cut-off.(but I think that there was a minimum cut-off for individual section because some students were not able to cler the test because they were unable to score in a particular section). · Don?t click on the EXIT Button; otherwise your test will be finished at that point. · You can jump to any question within a particular section, but you can not jump sections. On R.H.S. there is a display of Q.No. The answered questions appears in Green color, unanswered but visited questions in some other color(red or orange ,I don?t remember exactly) and unvisited questions in other color(red or orange). · A clock on the top corner of the right hand side displays the reaming time so please keep track of the time.
There were 3 Sections in the test: --- A.VEBAL SECTION (32 QUSETIONS 20 MINUTES): 10 antonyms, 10 synonyms, 1 Reading comparison heaving 6 question and one passage for fill in the blank with 6 questions. Most of the antonyms and synonyms were form Barron?s GRE (you can refer any edition for this section). Only prepare exercises given in the back of word list. There are 50 word lists in the book but you need not to mug all of them only 20 will also work. Start preparing a lot ahead of for this because it will take a lot of time because most of the words are hard to remember. It will take hardly 6-8 minutes to complete antonyms and synonyms because there are only two possibilities, either you know the answer or not. In the remaining time you can attempt RC & fill in the blanks. RC passage on Share Market and Investment, I have seen it somewhere but I don?t remember where exactly (most probably in barrons?s). The passage for fill- in the blanks I don?t remembered. But key point in fill-in the blank question is that there were not 5 options to fill the blanks. Instead it options were only 6 choices written and we have to fill each options by selecting it from a drop down menu. So please take care of this.
B. QUANTITATIVE APTITUDE ( 38 QUES, 40 MINUTES): The most easy and scoring section. You need not to do anything. No need to buy R. S. Awarwal or something else. Just practice 5-10 sample papers form Freshersworld that will be more than enough. I am giving some of the question with explanation that were in my examination:------ 1. 58, 27, 12, __, 2 . Sol. 27*2+4 = 58, 12*2+3 = 27, 5*2+2 = 12, 2*2+1 = 5, 1*2+0 = 2 ?.ans = 5
25. What is the equation of the given line?
ans: x -y=0
26. If n=10*18*38 which of the following is not an integer? a. n/40 b. n/90 c. n/72 d. n/35 Sol. (10*18*38)/35 is not an integer so ans = d (n/35)
C. CRITICAL REASONING (12 QUESETIONS, 30 MINUTES) : Don?t think that it is enough time to solve this section. Actually this section is from the model test papers of Barron?s 12 th edition. It consists of 3 paragraphs containing 4 questions each. If you have practiced a lot than you will able to do this section within 5 minutes, otherwise the case may be that you will not able to answer even a single question from it, because some questions are very tricky and you can do them if you are doing them first time. So please prepare the questions form 5 test papers and only solve those paragraphs which contain 4 or more questions. Don?t let this work pending till last day. Don?t need to mug up all the answers just know the method. Only some questions need to be mug up. There is no important passage as we had paragraphs form all test papers. So don?t take chance in this section. I think that in this section the weightage was higher than other sections. In my paper they asked the question on Prithu and Brithu marriages from test paper 5(they changed some name, but don?t worry if you know how to attempt then you will able to solve it and those who have mugged up it also don?t worry because the starting alphabet of the name of the characters was same, so still you can attempt it. Second paragraph was on Scurvy problem and it was also form test paper 5. Third passage was and selecting two professor form large university and one form small college.
They declared the result of first 80 students around 12am. And we were told that interview will start in 10 minutes. Due to our Test-1 exams we were out of touch with other technical subject and were thinking that we will revise Technical part in the rest of the day. But nothing could be done now. So we were ready for interviews. Out of total around 250 students around 180 students cleared the written test. We were given a form and asked to fill and submit it. I was called for interview around 5 pm.
TECHNICAL INTERVIEW: This was first time I was giving interview. So I was a little nervous before entering in the interview room. My throat was totally dry and I was thinking that I will not be able to answer their questions. But I had to face the interview and I was asked to go to panel no 1. There were two people there. I took their permissions to enter in the cabin and wished good evening to them. They asked me to sit down. Sir: Take out your CV , give it to us and tell me something about yourself. Me: I started: Sir, I am a person who is quite adaptive to any environment??.they started laughing. Yaar tu to ajeeb banda hai ?.agar tujhe pani main rakhain to rah lega?.I also gave them a smile ?.at that time they had finished scanning my CV and started putting questions form my CV. Sir: O.K. you have done a project on university student registration system in C and you have also done a project on time-table creation using UML.

Me: I exactly didn?t know so I asked that can I do some kite flying. Sir: yes, yes you can??.. Me: Sir I think that SDLC depends on the process model.. Sir: They started laughing again?..yaar hum to 10 saal se TCS main hain(they both were around 26 years of age so their fact was impossible)hamain to ye baat pata hi nahi thi??..tujhe kisne bayayi??..

Me: I politely said that I don?t know virtual table in C++ Sir: Do you have any questions? Me: I want to be run away from those people?so I said no questions sir.and they said that I can leave now?..
So friends that was my first interview in life and it was a stress interview. After 40 minutes I was again called for the H.R. Interview.
H.R. INTERVIEW: I asked the permission to enter in the cabin and wish good evening. The panel consisted only one person who was around 40 years of age.
