TCS Interview Experiences/ TCS Interview Experience
The interviewers i had were quite friendly. More importantly, they knew what they were doing and could very well gauge how the person in front of them was. They looked at marksheets and asked questions based on the subjects in which marks were comparatively higher. They also had very clear questions on projects undertaken. All the questions tested not only concepts but also attitude towards learning. I would suggest being as frank as you can in front of them. They can see through visages as they are very experienced in interviews. The next would be to have a clear understanding about the subjects in which you scored comparatively higher marks, as also about the why’s and how’s of your project.
The experience was a very pleasant one.For tips: The most important is that you should be confident in the way you speak and present yourself. Know yourself and answer truthfully. These are people who can sniff a lie when it’s being said. Be true and honest, be prepared with technical questions ( basics) and show eagerness to learn. Know about the company and be updated.
They want young, enthusiastic and smart learners who can be moulded to fit their company.
TCS is indeed a great experience. The rounds are quite simple as compared to the hype created for it. There were 3 rounds : Online Aptitude test,Technical interview,HR interview.
For Aptitude : Refer TCS mock test on their site(The actual test was simple as compared to that),Refer previous years apti questions from various online sites as most of the questions were repeated.The questions mainly consist of quants and logic. Time management is important and as every question has negative marking it is advisable to attempt what you are sure of.

Excellent experience , it was my first career interview of life and to clear it certainly brings a huge smile on the face. My tips for juniors will be :-
Be sure with the language you written in resume . Be 90% sure with that language. You can or will be asked to write programs. Be very sure about
- basic differences of java vs c++
- Interpretation vs compilation
and in HR :- if you are in some organizing committee then be prepared with questions like
what was your role, what problems you faced how you overcame etc. In the end just keep 2 things in mind body language and confidence .
Questions based on basics of principles of communication were asked. I was asked to speak about myself bringing out my best qualities. Later I was questioned were I would comfortable working in any city away from Mumbai with not so flexible working hours.
I would suggest to brush through whatever basics that have been taught and confidence is the key.
Technical interview was fully based on programming and real time applications.
Few questions were based on BE project.
confidence is important to crack HR round.
1. Be confident .
2. Being confident shudnt be confused with being arrogant .
3. Try to be as humble as possible and don’t mess up.
4. If u don’t know then don’t try and lie ur way out of it if u can’t .
5. If u do well and good u will get selected :p
