    TCS PAPER ON 15th FEBRUARY AT KOLKATA

    A big ?Hi? to one & all?This is Sandeep Das,pursuing B-Tech in Comp. Sc. & Engg. from Bengal Institute of Technology,kolkata?..Our campussing was scheduled to be held on 15th feb,2008?Let me share my part of experience with all & hope this would help all the aspiring candidates,who are eagerly waiting to bag a job at TCS?..One should be aware of the fact that cracking TCS campus interview is not a cake-walk....Dedication,devotion & a little bit of luck is what matters the most....It took me mere 20 days of hard-work to prepare....just spare out 20 days...and u r through.... 

    TCS APTITUDE PATTERN:-
    It was an online test of duration 90 min.......and comprises of 3 subdivisions:-

    1)Verbal:-
    a) 10 antonyms,10 synonyms
    b) Reading Comprehensions (3 passages)
    .......to be solved in 20 minutes....
    Remedy:-
    Prepare them from Barron's 12th Edition...I repeat....strictly the 12th Edition...there are 750 high frequency odd words....seems quite cumbersome,but there is no other alternative,but to mug up....try to memorize at least 100 words a day.....

    2) Quantitative:-
    a) 32 questions in 40 minutes
    Remedy:-
    This section comprises of 32 questions...to be solved in 40 min....This is considered to be the easiest of all,owing to the fact that same questions are repeated and that too without changing the data(sometimes...)....It is recommended that u all go through only the previous years question papers of TCS...and the sample papers of TCS from freshersworld.com and chetanasforum.com.....In addition to that.....if possible.....try to practice just the simple questions related to Venn Diagram,Bar Graph and Sets from R.S.Agarwal.........

    3) Critical Reasonings:-
    a) 3 reasoning based questions.....each consisting of 4 questions....to be solved in 30 minutes... 
    Remedy:-
    Prepare this section strictly from only the Model Test Paper of Barron's 12th Edition.....u may leave the reasonings containing less than 4 questions....believe me....they dont even change the sequence of the questions....If u have dearth of time and can't understand them....better mug them up.....

    NOTE
    There might be an upper cut-off for the Aptitude Test.....Its better to consult with the instructor before proceeding towards the Aptitude round.... The results were announced for the Aptitude Round....A blue form was given to us...and was instructed to fill up the form properly.....The interview session was scheduled after two days i.e. on 18th feb,2008 at Techno India,Salt Lake...... 

    TECHNICAL + HR ROUND:-
    In our case,both Technical & HR were conducted together....We reached around 8:00 am.....we were asked to wait in a classroom....Finally....I was called for the interview at 11:25 am....The panel consists of 2 members....It went like this......

    ME: Depends on Individual Perceptions.....(stood calm and composed....didn't react to the situation violently....)
