    Hello people, This is Shanmugha Priya R 

    The aptitude test was on 9th   and for the short listed students the technical, HR and the MR rounds were on 10th. helped me and my friends so much to get into TCS. We thank all those who had contributed placement papers to

    Aptitude test (9th June 2007)
    This will be the easiest round because you would have already known the pattern, i.e. the type of questions you are to get. It was an online test. Different question papers for each one of us and were generated by the software. Time management is very important. 

    There were three sections: Verbal, Quantitative and logical reasoning. No sectional cutoff.
    Verbal: Synonyms, antonyms, fill in the blanks of a paragraph, reading comprehension. 

    For synonyms and antonyms, be thorough with the high frequency words in Barron?s GRE. It will help you a lot. Though not all the synonyms and antonyms will be from Barron?s, you would have got familiar with some words and so you can answer some.

    Instead of sentence completion, I had paragraph completion. A paragraph with 5 blanks and 8 choices (sentences) were given. Choose the right sentence to be filled in the blanks from the given options.

    The last one was RC. I didn?t have time to do it. So, I just selected the options. If you have time, read the questions and then search for the answers in the given passages.

    Quantitative: Try to solve a good number of previous question papers. The papers in this site are sufficient. Once you are thorough with the procedure of each type of question, then there is nothing to worry. This will be the easiest of the three sections in the aptitude test.

    Very Important: There will be dummy questions. I.e. there will be no answers for those questions. Please try to identify those dummy questions and don?t answer them. You won?t be selected if you attend those dummy questions.

    Know how to solve the following kind of problems, 

    Problem on Ages
    Mixture: Ex: In a mixture, R is 2 parts, S is 1 part. In order to make S 25% of the mixture, how much R is to be added?

    Average: Ex: Gavaskar?s average in first 50 innings was 50. After the 51st innings his average was 51 how many runs he made in the 51st innings?

    Economy of fuel: Ex: A, B and C are the mechanisms used separately to reduce the wastage of fuel by 30%, 20% and 10%. What will be the fuel economy if they were used together?

    Time and work
    Time, speed and distance
    Cost of products
    Coding: Given a word, interchange the first and second letter, third and fourth letter and so on, find the nth letter from right or left.

    Ex: BFGE is CEHD, then, what is PVHDJ? 

    Curves: know the curves for sine x, cosine x, tan x, ex., e-x, log x, etc.

    Data Interpretation: Bar charts, Pie charts, tables.

    Direction: Ex: My flight takes off at 2am from a place at 18N 10E and landed 10 Hrs later at a place 36N70W. What is the local time when my plane landed?

    Problems on Set: Ex: AU (B-C) with values of A, B &C in bits format

    Number system: Ex: In which, decimal number 384 is equal to 1234?

    Prime numbers: Know the highest number and the highest prime number that can be stored in a 6 bit, 7 bit, 8 bit, 9 bit computer.

    Processor                  largest no.         largest prime no.

    6 bit                             63                          61                             

    7 bit                            127                        127

    8 bit                            255                        253

    9 bit                            511                        509




    Mass=kg m/s;

    Force=kg m/s2;

    Energy=kg m2/s2;

    Power=kg m2/s3;

    Logarithms: Ex: If log 0.317=.332; log 0.318=.3364, then log 0.319=?

    Problem on a Venn diagram:

    Ex: a Venn diagram on no. of people who know only English, only French, only German, both English and French, French and German, German and English, know all the three.

    ->How many know English more than French?

    ->What % people speak all the three languages?

    ->What % people speak German but not English?

    Odd one out:


    a. JAVA b. LISP c. Small talk d. Eiffel

    a. Http b. arp c. snmp d. sap   

    a. Linux NT c. SQL server d. Unix

    a. SAP b. ARP  c. WAP d.TCP IP

    a. Oracle b. Linux c. Ingress d. DB2

    a. SMTP  b. WAP c. SAP d. ARP 

    a. WAP b. HTTP c. BAAN d. ARP

    a. SQL b. DB2 c. SYBASE d. HTTP

    a. Oracle b. Linux c. Ingress d. DB2

    Other simple problems like Standard deviation, Address of an element in a matrix, temperature, recursion, series, weights, triangle, cube, percentage, power of 3 or 4, orthogonal pairs, mathematical symbols like @,#,etc used for operators, weights..  

    Logical reasoning:
    Refer Barron?s GRE 12th edition. Solve the 5 model question papers along with the exercise given in the book. If you don?t understand, just mug it up. But, you will have enough time to solve them.20 or 30 minutes for three paragraphs each with 4 questions.

    I got all the three questions from the model test papers from the Barron?s. You will know the results once the duration of 90 minutes is over on the screen itself. And yes, I was selected. 

    Interview (10th June 2007)

    Technical and HR interviews were together.
    The interviewer was very friendly. He asked me to introduce myself. I did that. Some personal questions. Then, he asked some questions on my project and some on DLL (Dynamic Linking Library).Some more technical questions. I was cool and answered confidently. I didn?t know one answer, but I was managing to answer something and he helped me by explaining the concept. Then he asked me if I were posted in New Delhi, will I go. I said yes and something else and he was impressed. He wished me all the best and we shook hands.

    That was it. I got through this round also.

    Managerial Review
    A panel of two interviewers was there. One member asked me about my strengths and then my goal in my life. My answers were genuine and satisfactory. And this was also over. 

    Results were announced late night. And, I was through.

    There were stress interviews also for some of us. Keep your cool. Answer confidently. Everything depends on your attitude. For computer science and IT students, be thorough in your concepts. Basic concepts in OS, DBMS, Data Structures, OOPS, Computer Networks, Software Engineering, must be known. Concentrate on C and C++, even if you don?t know anything in java or any other high level programming languages. Just say you don?t know those languages. Good Communication Skills is important in all these interviews. Take enough copies of your resumes and passport size photographs and all the necessary certificates.

    The most important thing is, always pray to God. Be confident. Prepare well. All the best. God will always be with you.
