TCS Placement Papers

Company: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)

Hi Friends.

I have appeared for TCS on campus on 12th January at GNIT along with other 1300 students (JIS +

Narula+ GNIT) .TCS had previously (in the month of December) given away their Demo paper to many

colleges and we were no exception. We practiced them repeatedly. On the day of the aptitude test

we found that each & every question in the aptitude was from those papers given previously by

TCS. We were very happy, we answered around 28(correct) on an avg.
I personally answered 30(correct), could have answered >32 but didn’t due to the fear of uppercut

off. In general cases it remains (lower cutoff 18 & upper cutoff >32).But Eventually when results

were out.
The lower cutoff was 33 out of 35.those who have any doubt can ask this to any student of

jis/gnit/narula of batch 2011 pass out.
