This test in not conducted by TCS directly, but by a consultancy, named Venture Management Associates, based in Trivandrum, Kerala.
The duration of the test is 2 hours. The test is divided into 3 parts.
Part I English Synonyms etc 34 Questions
Part II Arithmetic 32 Questions Total: 78 Questions
Part III Critical Reasoning 12 Questions.
Part I and Part III are Multiple Choice Questions and Part II is filling up the Blanks model.
There are 10 synonyms, 10 antonyms, both of MCQ type. 
In section I there is a passage with seven blank spaces and nine sentences as answer choices. This passage is about ‘mind power’. You have to choose the correct sentence and put the correct choice in the appropriate blank in the main passage. You have to be thorough with the English to answer this Question. The rest of the section is simple Mathematics problems. It would be good if you take a quick glance to the +2 Maths, since they ask questions curves, equations and gradients.
Section II consists of simple arithmetic problems and some reasoning problems. You have to write the answer on the answer sheet and no choices are given.
Section III is “Critical Reasoning”, and the questions are of MCQ type.
They have SIX Question paper sets, named A, B, C, D, E and F. We have tried to draw a general pattern and have included many sample questions, which are in the same pattern with the papers.

TCS Selection Guidelines ========================= Firstly, TCS has several levels of tests/interview in their selection procedure. 1. Aptitude test (generally online test) consisting of three sections, verbal abilities, quantative abilities and logical reasoning abilities. In verbal, u r asked antonyms of several words in English language, similar but less exhaustive than GRE verbal section. Quantative consists of class X level mathematical skill testing problems. logical reasoning will ask you yes/no/can’t say type questions based on a paragraph. u will have to read through the paragraph fast but efficiently understanding only the main pith of the written material. regarding the words, they ask the same words over and over again. So, memorise the word meanings from all the papers that i have put up. U will surely get all of them common. In case, u have given GRE, don’t bother about this section at all. All words are common. Each section is time limited. I have forgotten the exact time division. So u can not afford to waste too much time on any one section. 2. Psychometry: When u clear the above three section, u will be allowed to appear for psychometry. Its 150 questions to be answered in 30 min. Always remember to give POSITIVE and CONSISTENT answers since the same stun repeats with a different sentence construction sometimes later. Try to hide -ve traits in ur character as like being impatient, getting bored easily, distracted easily, feeling uneasy in a gathering of many people, unsocial and over talkative nature, etc. They ask questions like whether u would make friendship with a person of opposite sex, feel insomnia without reason, consistently brood over a mistake u did in the past, the type of person u r, etc etc. what u r actually is not important, what qualities would make ur employers happy is important. 3. After u clear psycho, is ur technical interview. Questions come mainly from the projects, experiences u have gathered. They check ur resume and the blue form and ask questions from there. Even sometimes they test ur logical abilities by asking puzzles like the type they ask at Infy. get through with the project works and stuff and be smart and reply confidently. 4. Clearing technical inter will make u eligible for HR interview which is also the final stage. Qstns are various types, including ur background, ur hobbies, etc etc. They are known to harass people with their hobbies. so, whatever hobbies u write, plz be through with it and prepare so that u can answer questions from your hobbies. Like if u say singing, plz get through with ur scale and technical things related to singing etc. If u like reading, plz be prepared to name a few novels and face questions on those novels. Also, they might try to embarrass u by asking questions of personal and slightly indecent nature like about ur boyfriend, ur affairs(if any) etc. Stay calm and answer them with a smiling face. Keep eye contact. Don’t get provoked by any means. That’s about all. They take a week or so to announce results. So have patience and hope for the best. Lastly a disclaimer: =============================================================================== All this are from my experience and experience from my friends and colleagues. They need not match ur experiences with the interview. As a matter of fact, ur experiences could be entirely different. These are guidelines only and there is no guarantee that things would go as I have written. It’s TOTALLY ON One’s OWN LUCK and that’s what anyone would need in plenty to clear such interviews. Neither i am in anyway associated with TCS HR nor with the interview procedure. So, i am not responsible for the methodologies or strategies they use. /cgi-bin/gold/compose.cgi?login=bharathymca&session_id=2K1KKK597MlubMsYhmdVtRsVkj0V&FormName=
