Firstly, TCS has several levels of tests/interview in their selection

1. Aptitude test (generally online test)

It is consisting of three sections, verbal abilities, quantitive abilities, and logical reasoning abilities
In verbal, you are asked antonyms of several words in English language, similar but less exhaustive than GRE verbal section. Quantitive 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, memorize the word meanings from all the papers that I have put up. U will surely get all of the common. In case, u have given GRE, don’t bother abt 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. It’s 150 questions to be answered in 30 min. Always remember to give POSITIVE and CONSISTENT answers since the same question repeats with a different sentence construction sometimes later. Try to hide -ve traits in ur character as 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 you would make friends with a person of the 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 you eligible for an HR interview which is also the final stage. Questions are various types, including ur background, ur hobbies, etc, etc. They are known to harass people with their hobbies. so, whatever hobbies you write, plzz be through with it and prepare so that you can answer questions about ur hobbies. Like if u say singing, plzz get through with ur scale and technical things related to singing, etc. If u like reading, please be prepared to name a few novels and face questions on those novels. Also, they might try to embarrass you by asking questions of personal and slightly indecent nature like abt 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 abt all. They take a week or so to announce results. So have patience
and hope for the best.
