Hey Hi
I, Sunil Rana (Electrical & Electronics Engg)attended the off-campus placement drive of TCS on 24th of May conducted in Vardhaman Engg College in Hyderabad. I would like to share my experience  whch wud certainly help u in cracking n bagging d job, i cleared till the last round but wasnt anticipating ny call from TCS as i had an offer to join in another IT firm,i left TCS.
it was like 4 days of drive as der wer around 6000 students who wer appearin 4 TCS. each day 1500 wer cald for 4 consecutive days...(Cut- Throat Competition)
It was a complete shocker 4 evry1 as we discovered dat TCS written test was entirely changed.. A ppt was arranged as we entered in to hall.....
ranodeep sen, hr described about the company profile n also about TATA empire...if possible note down some points whch mite be askd in interview
He said dat with our batch written test is cpmpletely changed n it was based on TOUCHSTONE S/W whch was about to realease in the market. It was designd by IIT Chennai students n consisted of around 3Lacs Que in its database..The test copmrised of 35 Ques to be answered in 60 mins whcn can come from ny of dese 3 lak questions.The actual game was that there was negative marking of  -0.33 marks whch means 1 marks will be deducted for every 3 incorrect answers n d hr instructed  few points about how 2 login n  filling up d details(der was no was very clear)
we wer made to go in batches n write the computer based test(Touchstone)

Trust me ,it was very user frndly n test was very very easy provided u must have gud verbal ability n analytical reasoning. the questions wer very lengthy of 9-10lines each, the  answer to d question lies in only 2-3 lines whch was quite is the ability of d candidate to understand n answer

Fr Instance: X is 3 years yunger to Y. X's father is a businessman who invested 10000/- at 8% rate of interest n obtained his amount after 10 years. Y's father is a job holder who invested around 20000 at 2% rate n obtained his amount after 20 years.Now Compunded both of dem get around ABC rs/-(dnt remenbr).After 5 years the ratio of ages of X n Y is 1:2. Now X's father is 20 years older to Y n Y' father is 30 years more than X. After 20 years again
X's mother asks X's father to purchase a LCD TV whch costs around 45000/-. what is the age of X n Y together?

Here in d above question the answer lies in considering two statements 2gether i.e "X is 3 years yunger to Y" n "After 5 years the ratio of ages of X n Y is 1:2"
so most of the questions wer of this type whch was very very easy....some questions arised from

Time n Distance a fibonacci series question

the que was: (it was also a lengthy que but i am shortening it)if the first 3 no.s are 1,3, on (fibonacci series) den at whch postion will u get 143? 

Some wer from Problem on Ages, Probabilty, Reasonig, problem on Numbers(3 que very easy based on (a3-b3) formulas n  (a+b)2=a2+b2+2ab), Circle problems , Mind Boggling Ques.etc which wer very easy.

a single analogy ques:  people:democracy::wealth: X.....X is a)oligarchy b)anarchy c)monarchy d)democracy ans: A

 i answered around 28 of the questions which i was expexting all wer corect. honestly speking the time wasnt sufiicient...i was pretty confident dat i will clear d written test
n yes after 1 week i got an email regarding interview call in the same college.

My interview was scheduled around 2pm. We wer provided with a TCS
application form whch we needed to fill n staple the resume along with it...Now a senior associate of TCS(around 60 years of age) came to adress abt the company profile(dis time in detail) n also discussed abt d job was related to "IT INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGEMENT SERVICES"  whch included technologies like CLOUD COMPUTING N REMOTE INFRSTRCTR etc
after 45  mins of boring ppt...we wer asked to go to the panel room(Interview room)
Der wer 2 rounds Tech N HR
First Tech.....i was bit nervous but confident..i askd a student who just came outside from d panel room...he said dat he was bombarded with C &
