Hiring for TCS Ninja Process

First of all we would like to tell everyone, as most students are confused about this.

Ques. I attended TCS Digital drive and they had mentioned you can’t attend any other TCS Drive within the next 6 months, is it true?

Ans. We spoke with TCS HR’s and they confirmed, only if you’re selected in TCS Digital and have cleared the interview as well. Only in that case you can’t attend any future drives for the next 6 months, else if you were not selected in TCS Digital then you can apply and give the written test for the same.

TCS Ninja will have the following sections –

  • Verbal English

C MCQ Section/Programming Logic

Some websites are copying our materials and earlier we had made a typo on this page saying there are 20 questions in 20 mins and they are showing that false information.

This year topics of Data Structures and Object Oriented Programming has been added.

Now, we have corrected this page, there are 10 questions in this section and time given is 20 mins.

The questions asked in this section are basic questions and C input output questions in 2017 about 80% of the questions in the exam for this section were repeated from our Paid materials and free materials. You can check our C MCQ Section Dashboard for more information on this.


Earlier command line programming used to be there but this year, it has been removed. But, it still remains important to study command line theory as about 1-2 questions in Programming Logic MCQ Section will be from command Line Programming theory.

In the new pattern you can use any language of your choice and one question will be there and the time given is 20 mins.

Command Line coding is very different from C and C++ and other languages. You can only learn command line programming on PrepInsta. Nowhere else, any information is given for the same.

There will be one question and time given will be 20 mins.

Candidate Experience

  • Name: Rahul Reddy
  • College: B.M.S College of Engineering
  • Branch: Computer Science and Engineering
  • Type of Interview: On-Campus Interview

Student Interview

TCS Ninja conducted on campus drive for our college this year. Like every year, many students appeared for the drive. I was also excited to participate in the on-campus placement drive and decided to attend the placement. After registration, I started to prepare for the placement process. While browsing the internet for pervious year TCS Ninja questions, I came across PrepInsta website and some valuable information present in it for the placement drive.

Round 1: Online Test

The first round was an online test that was made up of four sections- aptitude, programming test, coding, and English Verbal. The written part was quite simple. I had prepared this section from some books and also from the PrepInsta documents which I downloaded from the website.

  • Aptitude Test

The aptitude test mainly covered topics such as:

  • Probability
  • permutations and combinations
  • time and speed
  • percentages
  • profit and loss, and
  • Simple and compound interest.

I answered most of the questions and left the ones for which I was not sure about the answer.

  • English Verbal

For me 10 mins were given and there was a big paragraph from which many words were missing, we had to choose the correct grammatical option and mark the correct answer, to do this 10 mins were given.

  • Programming Section

The programming section was also simple for me to attempt as I was from a computer science background. Also, most of the programming questions were already familiar to me as I had come across them in the PrepInsta material.

  • Coding Section
    The coding section included one question. In this, I had to write the code for a simple question. I had been through some coding questions from the PrepInsta website and prepared for this.

After the written test was over, we were informed that the selected students would be called for an interview the next day. I was quite excited for the interview round as my written test went quite well. The next day, the names of the candidates selected were displayed on the college notice board. I found my name on the list and went for the personal interview round.

Round 2: The Interview Round

Soon after waiting for a little while, I went for the technical interview. There was a single interviewer from TCS Ninja. He asked me to introduce myself. Later, he asked me about my project. He also asked me technical, and managerial questions. Some of them were:

• How can volte work in a 4G mobile?

• What is an IP address?

• What is Cloud Computing?

• Explain types of protocols.

• What are your strengths and weaknesses?

• How to connect nine dots using three straight lines?

• What is the highest achievement in your life?

Towards the end, he asked me some HR questions. Some of them are:

• Tell me something about yourself.

• Why do you want to go for an IT job?

• Why do you want to work in TCS Ninja?

• Are you flexible to relocate to other locations in India?

The TCS Ninja interview went well for me. After one week of the interview, I received an email informing me that I got selected. I immediately accepted the offer and joined TCS Ninja.
