Hi friends, I have attempted the
TCS off campus drive. It is very glad to share my experience with you.
TCS Company has conducted these
1) Written Test
2) Technical + Managerial
3) HR Interview
1) Written Test:
Section 1 - Email writing, Duration: 10 minutes.
The email writing section consists of set of
keywords which we have to use in the description while writing, they will also
mention the names of sender and receiver of the email conversation. We have to
use all the keywords in any order to frame sentences, follow the format of
standard email while writing and there is a minimum word limit like 50 words to
describe within 10 minutes of duration. I finished the email writing by using
74 words with in the time limit.
Section 2 - Aptitude Test,
Duration: 80 minutes.
Consists of total
30 Aptitude questions for that we can refer RS Agarwal and the difficulty level
is some how tricky, by the practice we can easily solve them. There is a 1/3
negative marking for each wrong question. I solved only 21 questions, I didn't
choose the answer for the questions which I have doubt.
After two days I got a mail from
TCS careers, that I cleared written test and selected for further interview
2) Technical + Managerial
the Interview panel there are two members, they are very active and listened
each word which I tell. And they observed my way of expressing and how I am communicating
with them throughout the interview. Total TR+MR were taken around 45 minutes,
and it goes like this.

I explained with
smile and confidence, because I know that first impression is the best
impression, so just I followed that formula.
And, I covered my educational background and projets which I have done.

in intermediate compare to 10th and B.Tech?

class just we mug up the answers where as in intermediate we have understand

background its somewhat difficulty to cover those subjects that’s why I
suffered. But coming to b.tech I overcome all the problems which I faced.
3) What is your Rank in class?

questions regarding that. It takes nearly 20 minutes discussion and I cleared
their all doubts. But I can say, they were really impressed with this site,
because it is an on going project and it will show the practical knowledge
which we gain. This site helped me a lot as a major project, because it gave me
a priority if I compare with my other competitors, and also helped me for

ok but it may causes to some other problems.
