Hi Chetanaites

My Name is Arshad and I would like to share my expereince during TCS Off-Campus Inteview. I m student of Dr. D. Y. Patil College, Pimpri and Studying in M.C.S. The Test was on 2nd of December 2007. The written test was at Panchsheel Street, Hadapsar, Pune.

They called all the candidates at 8:30 a.m. There were around 600 students and they have 100 batches for written test. I was there in campus at 9:30 a.m and my apti batch started on 4:30 in the evening. So i was very tired in their AC room. It was online test consisting of 35 question that u have to solve in 90 min. U would think its easy but believe me it was not so easy. I had completed 14 quest in 1 hr. It consist of max logical question and very few verbal quest. The quest was like

Sample Apti Quest
1)P,Q,R,S,T,U are the students in the class.
   P is taller than U, U is shorter than S, S is taller than P,.....(not remember)
   Find who is taller one

2)A,B,C are the 3 student that have stolen a camera.
  This each student has made 2 statement in which one is speaking true,one is lying and other is giving alternate true and lye
  Their Statement are
  A: 1) B has stolen camera
      2) I m not telling lie
  B: 1)C is telling true
      2)I have not stolen Camera
  C: 1) A is telling lie
      2) i m telling truth
Find out who is telling alternate true and lie.
A) A  B) B  C) C   D) Cant Determined.

There were few questions on Trains, Boatstreams, Blood Relations, Verbal

So my advice to you to answer that question that u know very well and in last 10 min answer all your quess questions. There is no Negative Marking. I have scored 14/35. The questions are very lengthy and u have to answer reading all quest. so max time was wasted over there.
Cutoff was 13. It depends on level of complexity in each aptitude.

After written test they said result will be announced in 5 mins. and were given blue form to fill all the personal details and said that u will be call for technical round within 7 days. They have given hint that ur technical round will be on your skills written in ur resume. So friends if ur knowing little Java then please dont mention in resume. I was called for Interview on 7th Dec and I was very nervous. when i went to interview, the interviewer realised that i m nervous he told me that dont be nervous and take this interview as our discussion. He told me that roam in campus for 5 min. and then come when u will feel litle bit good. So after 5 min, my tech round started.

He asked about me, background details, academic projects and favourite subject
I told him C and C++ are my favorite subject.
He asked me on How do you gather info for project (answered), what r the parameters (answered), after gather info what u will do (answered).
Then he asked me about TCS
Then I impressed him much explaining TCS (So prepare well). The interview was 1 and half hr
TCS clients, CMM level, Total Employees, Involved in, Annual revenue, Awarded for, Located at, Vision
TCS vision is Global 10 by 2010 it means right now TCS is on 11th pos on world top company and wants to be in 10 before 2010.

So after tech round Hr Round was very good. the hr was only taking confirmation and asked some personal informations.

If u cleared aptitude then u have done 70% if u cleared technical then u have done 95%. All tech round cleared stud have cleared HR round as well. Then hr said that ur result will be mailed to you within 1 week and we all got confirmation mail that we are selected after 2 weeks. So total 41 students are selected for TCS and has Training in Chennai for 4 months
