TCS PAPER – 25 MAR 2008 – BHUBANESWAR

I am RAHUL PATI from SILICON INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY, Bhubaneshwar. I am from ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS branch. TCS conducted a recruitment drive in our campus on 25-26th March 2008 and recruited 145 students. Now I am a TCS-ian!!!

PRE-PLACMENT TALK-
On 25th we had a pre-placement talk. The TCS officials gave a presentation and told us about their company and services. Listen to this talk carefully. I might help you in the interview.

ONLINE TEST INSTRUCTIONS-
We had an online test. The instructions will be given by the TCS officials. Listen VERY CAREFULLY to the instructions. A silly mistake will prove very costly.
1. Open the internet explorer and type the address, given by TCS official, in the address bar.
2. The site opens and asks you login id and password. Those will also be provided to you.
3. Once you login, you might get a page ‘SAMPLE TEST’. Ignore it and click ‘GO TO MAIN TEST’ on that same page. Now your test starts.
4. The test has 3 sections of 20 mins, 30 mins and 40 mins. Test starts with section 1.
5. On the right top corner you will have a timer counting down and links to ques of that section. From the timer you can see the time left for that section and through the ques links you can move to any ques within that section only.
6. The ques links have 3 color codes- RED – NOT VISITED
ORANGE- VISITED BUT NOT ATTEMPTED
GREEN- ATTEMPTED
7. There will be two buttons at the bottom of the page- EXIT and SUBMIT
8. After answering a ques click the SUBMIT button to register your answer. You can always come back and change it within the stipulated time.
9. EXIT button takes you out of the section. So click it ONLY after you have attempted all ques of a section.
10. After you finish all 3 sections CLICK EXIT. DON’T close the main window WITHOUT clicking EXIT!

INTERVIEW-
We had just 1 combined tech and HR interview. You might have 2 rounds. For tech interview my sincere advice is that BE THOROUGH WITH YOUR BRANCH SUBJECTS! Out of the 4 computer subjects (C, C++, DS and RDBMS) prepare any one thoroughly and atleast the basics of other 3.

For HR interview prepare some general ques like:
1. Tell me about yourself
2. Strength and weakness
3. Why TCS
4. Why IT (for non-stream students)
5. Where you see yourself after 5 years
6. Hobbies and interests
7. Your idol and why

INTERVIEW TIPS:
1. Dress properly
2. ALWAYS have a smile on your face
3. Be confident and enthusiastic
4. ALWAYS be polite and humble
5. NEVER bluff. If you don’t know something tell them politely
6. ALWAYS try to lead the interview
7. During tech interview, ALWAYS explain them the concept. This will also show them your communication skill.
8. NEVER EVER argue with the interviewer
