TCS Prime On Campus Interview Experience

I recently applied for the TCS On Campus Drive. It was the biggest drive on our campus, and so our placement officers were very adamant that eligible candidates apply for it.

The recruitment process included:-

  • TCS NQT Online Test
  • Interview

TCS Prime Online Test

This round was conducted around 15th January, and I had to go to the TCS iON Exam Centre. Unlike the previous years, this exam was conducted in person. My exam was from morning 9 am, and I had to carry identification documents. There was very strict proctoring, and unlike previous batches we had no chance to take any external help.

TCS NQT Recruitment Process

There were two sections in the exam, and the overall time was 190 minutes. The exam was of high difficulty, and we were told that the marking was going to be difficult.

I used PrepInsta Prime, to prepare for this round. There resources were really helpful for me. During the exam, most of the questions I got were similar to the Prime Mocks.

TCS Prime Technical Interview

My interview was conducted two weeks later. I got the email that I was selected for the TCS Prime interview. There were two different interviews, for me. All of them were conducted in the same day, however these were taken by different panelists.

There were different seminar halls set up for each of the round.

Some of the questions that were asked to me:-

  1. What is deep learning?
  2. What is neural networks?
  3. What is perception?
  4. What is activation function?
  5. What is feedforward and backpropagation?
  6. How weights are calculated in neural networks, write the formula.
  7. What are the different types of activation function?
  8. What is learning rate?
  9. What is SMTP?
  10. Write a program to print the given pattern.

As I had made my final year project with Machine Learning, and I was interested in AI/ML, the interviewer based the entire interview around ML. Hence, I would say that you should focus on your project.

I was not asked to show my project demo, but some of the other candidates had to run a demo.

TCS Prime HR/MR Interview

After the technical interview was over, I was asked to go over to the HR/MR panel. This was a short round, and there were two panelists. This was a cumulative HR and MR interview. The questions included:-

  1. How do you handle stress?
  2. What do you know about TCS?
  3. Are you willing to relocate if needed?
  4. Are you comfortable with work from office or work from home?
  5. What is your most notable achievements?
  6. What are your hobbies?

This was all about my interview rounds. I later on got the offer letter email, and also got informed by the TPO.
