Hello Everyone,

I am Amit Das, Computer Science & Engineering Student of MCKV Institute


Of Engineering, Liluah, Howrah in 2007-2011 batch. I am happy to say that , i
got selected in TCS. TCS came to our college on 10
th
January,2011.In aptitude
test around more than 230 students were there from which near about 160
students cleared the test, out of which 121 selected for TCS. Here i am
sharing my interview experiences with all of you....
The selection procedure as follows:
1.Aptitude test (35 questions,80 minutes---online)
For Aptitude test prepare from barrons GRE book/R.S.Aggarwal book.you can
also practice from freshersworld.com, Ittestpapers.com, testfunda.com etc..
I sat for the apti around 11 pm..I answered 33 questions out of 35.The
questions were of the types we had practiced my friends and I had practiced a
lot of aptitude questions from various sites/books. Aptitude test question are
always of the same type as the previous papers, don't memorize the answer..
rather try to fgure out type of question because fgures and question types are
subtly changed . Out of 35 doing 25 questions correctly according to me will
get you through to the next rounds. There is 1/3 negative marking so answer
only the questions you are sure about. Dont guess. The results were declared
at around 2 pm and I came to know that I was selected for the interview.

Me: Shook his hand with a smile. Then again saying thank you sir, i came out
of the room without looking backward(dont look backward).
My interview went for about 35 minutes.I came out around 4.45 pm. The
results were declared at 8 pm...and when my name was declared it was one of
happiest moments of my life....More so because almost all of my friends were
selected. But, also feeling bad for some of my friends who did not get through.
But you never know..a much bigger opportunity may be waiting for them.
just remember one thing : You need not prepare all subjects at once. Prepare
those which you are comfortable...
So, all aspirants, prepare well, be confdant & never lose hope.. If you have
failed yet, dont get disappointed. Losers got a chance to correct their mistakes
and winners lost their chance to correct their mistakes. If you are selected,
remember, on that day you are better than those who are participated for that
interview, but not the Best
Finally, I thank freshersworld for helping me a lot during preparation & giving
me the chance to share my experience...
I would also thank my parents, my teachers, and all my friends who always
inspire me, help me and stand beside me all the time. I would also thank
testfunda.com , m4maths.com, ITtestpapers.com which helped me in solving
the aptitude questions.
Lastly, If you face any problem regarding the solution of appti questions or
interview preparation...feel free to mail me at amit.keb@gmail.com.
So do your home work well and keep faith in GOD, best of luck to all of
you...will meet you at TCS one day....
