Details about How to Prepare for the above tests:

**1.Verbal Ability:** This Test contains Synonyms & Antonyms…Almost all of them were From GRE BARRON’S 12th Edition & upward…30-50% of them will be repeated from previous TCS papers. Few Questions on Sentence Completion were also there..for these also refer BARRON’S.NOTE: During the Exam..you should be careful..because on the computer screen the names Synonyms & Antonyms will be placed side by side so that we may by mistake choose an antonym instead of a synonym…so Be Careful..

**2.Aptitude Test:** This test will consist of very general questions…This is the easiest section Compared to the other two. Almost 70-80 Questions will be repeated from the Previous TCS Papers…just learn the method from those papers..same model will be given..(This happened almost all the times). If you have time refer to any Aptitude book of your interest…it may be R.S.AGARWAL or any Other……

**3.Critical Reasoning:** Here starts your Problems…30 Minutes…12 questions..don’t think that there is a lot of Time..these will be somewhat tougher those who has some touch with such kind..and will be very Tough.. if you haven’t seen this kind before..so,you should have some practice relating this kind of questions… 3 paragraphs will be given.. 3X4.. 12 questions.. first 2 paragraphs will be some twisty questions… like our arrangements questions… routes between cities.. like that… and the last one will be on Data Interpretation…you prepare Data Interpretation again from BARRON’S…. but the remaining from R.S.AGARWAL-Reasoning…. Or from Barron’s 13th Edition

**4.Psychometric Test:** This test comes up only if you qualify in the Aptitude test… This test consists of 150 questions which we should answer in 30 minutes (of course, that much time is not required) Don’t think that this test has no weightage.. there is filtering in this test too… this test tests your psychology.. Remember among 150 many questions were asked again & again in a variety of ways.. so don’t get trapped… be honest while attempting this test.. choose what you’re your heart says.. it will take you through the test..This ends the Tests.

**interviewS:** Now if you are Alive even after All these tests….then you have to face a Technical interview…it may be on the same day of the Test.. so be Prepared in Advance…..the interview will be done by a Panel of 2 members…. no need to worry.. They will be very supporting & Friendly.. first they ask us to Introduce ourselves… then they’ll go into your project details… don’t forget to prepare project…. They mainly concentrate on your project only…so be confident on every aspect of your project… then you should have some basic knowledge on C language. there will be some questions like “what is the o/p of this code?”, “what are the errors in the code?”..like that… so be prepared for all the basic concepts.. If needed you have to write some small codes too.. at the end they will ask some general questios like “why TCS?”, “Where do you see yourself in the next five years?”, “do you have any questions?”, try ask some questions… it shows your interest in the Company..

**HR interview:** Now if Chase this one too…. then comes your Final Attack.. the HR Round… I many times heard that “I failed in HR round!”.. likewise anwers…. But you should not fail in it.. because it involves no technical questions… it just dwell into your innerself… so, be confident and frank while facing this round…They generally ask questions like “tell about yourself?”, “who r your role models?”, “what is your weakness?”, don’t say “I Have no weakness!”, just prepare a small weakness for yourself that causes no harm to your future…O.K.. “what is your mother tongue?”

if your Academic background is good.. be prepared to face some Techies here too….

**CRITICAL REASONING:** this will be from GRE barron’s 12th edition.All qns are from 5 model papers if u are not able to solve them just mug the answers.

I got the qns:model test1 section5(qns 1-4)

model test2 section 6(qns 17-22)

model test4 section6(qns 8-12)

**For example**

A speaks Telugu, B speaks Hindi & Malayalam, C speaks Hindi & English, D speaks Telugu & Hindi, E is native of a Andhra Pradesh speaks Telugu & English then

1. who can act as a mediator between A&C?

2. who can act as a translator between A&B ? etc., the other two questions are very very difficult.

SO READ THE PREVIOUS PAPERS FOR APTITUDE AND BARON’S FOR S3 AND ALL THE QNS WILL BE REPEATED BUT DON’T TRY TO REMEMBER THE ANSWER IN S2 THEY WILL CHANGE THE DATA JUST KNOW THE PROCEDURE

**TECHNICAL**:

this round is very easy to answer for electronics students prepare well C,DATA STRUCTURES,MICROPROCESSORS and basics of communications.know some basic programs like prime no’s,fibonacci series,palindrome.Be confident so that u can clear this round

**HR** :

once if u clear the technical it’s very easy to face hr.my HR is for 2minutes only.But be careful there will be elimination in this round too.so just answer for qns in favour of the company.

TCS TECHNICAL PAPER WITH TIPS The test was divided in three sections as: Verbal reasoning Critical reasoning Quantitative aptitude Tips: 1.GRE Barron will be helpful.(12th edition) 2.Be very much concerned for time. 3.Be confident and calm in your technical and HR interview. No Sectional Cut off. No Negative marks. No Psychometric Test was there for us. Appearance of Psychometric means you cleared the test. Section A consisted of 10 antonyms and 10 synonyms. I don’t remember them but u have to be well prepared with the GRE BARRONS 12TH EDITION Next was to fill lines in the gaps: (10 Qs)There were 10 gaps to be filled in with lines in a passage given.that was similar as fill in the blanks. Section B was the QUANTITATIVE section. Some of the questions were as below. the quantitative questions in TCS are always repeated . so I suggest u to go through the previous question papers available. 1.Find the result of the following __expression if, M denotes modulus operation, R denotes round-off, T denotes truncation: M(373,5)+R(3.4)+T(7.7)+R(5.8) 2. what is the largest prime number that can be stored in an 8-bit memory? 3. Find the physical quantity in units from the equation: (Force*Distance)/(Velocity*Velocity) 4. Find the value of @@[email protected], where @ denotes “square” and + denotes “square root”. 5.

Section C was of CRITICAL REASONING . It consisted of three reasoning and was subdivided into 4 parts each. I don’t remember them but u again have to be well prepared wit GRE BARRONS 12th edition , because all of the reasoning were from there only. TECHNICAL INTERVIEW It was in the starting batch of my interview. there were two interviewers in my panel. the questions came as follows 1.tell us about yourself ? 2. They were not clear about my branch ,as I mentioned E.N. in the application form. so the next question was that which branch is E.N? 3.Which computer languages are you familiar with? Ans. I had mentioned only ‘C ’language in my cv. so the asked me questions related to that. and one thing more if u don’t know something ,be true for that and accept that u don’t know that. Unnecessarily don’t fiddle with that. 4. They asked me that what is a diode?and give its application? ans . I simply replied diode is a pn junction which is used in rectifying circuits.they asked me to explain with help of circuit diagram. That was a easy task. 5. what is the frequency of human eyes? Ans. I didn’t knew it ,and I accepted it. the interviewer replied that it was 18 hz per second. 6. what is a transformer? Ans .i replied 7.they asked me to draw the waveform for the input voltage at our home? Ans. it was easy. 8.what this waveform is known as? Ans. again a easy one I replied it as sinusoidal wave. 9.They asked me to WAP for multiplication of two matrix? And some more questions related to my branch… HR INTERVIEW There were two persons in the hr interview. They asked me why do I want to join TCS. after that the again came on technical and asked for my area of interest.. I was well prepared with ELECTRICAL MACHINES ,so I opted for it. then some questions came regarding the motors and I was comfortable with them. the asked for my second area of interest… I went for MICROPROCESSORS.They asked me 1. what is a microprocessor? 2. why it is called a microprocessor? 3. How many types of microprocessors are there ? 4. what is the latest microprocessors used? 5. when was the first microprocessor developed? Then they came back to electrical…why a bird sitting on the transmission line does not get affected by the current in the line, while a man gets a shock?the then asked that would I work anywhere ,do any sort of work, and work anytime?my answer was obviously YES They then asked that if I had any questions…….. 1.I asked about some questions that I heard about TCS during the ppt? 2.I asked about their training programe?
