TCS Placement Paper

TCS recruitment procedure basically include 4 rounds:

1. Online Aptitude Test
2. Technical
3. HR
4. MR

But in my case it was a bit different, after clearing the Aptitude test, i had 3 interviews in each of which i had to face all the three (technical, HR, MR) kind of questions.
