Student Interview

My experience for TCS NQT exam and interview has been a good one. I passed through the assessment with moderate difficulty because I had taken the crash course from Prepinsta which helped me prepare in my last days. I wish I had taken it earlier, I would have prepared better for the exam. But never too late, I passed my exams and got the mail for the interview. For my TCS Exam and Interview there were a total of 3 rounds that I had to clear.
  • Writter Assessment Round
  • Advanced Coding Round
  • Interview Round

Written Exam

To start off with your TCS career, you need to appear for their written exam or the Assessment Test. This section tests your skills in different subjects and your ability to solve tricky questions in a limited time. The Assessment exam constituted of five sections namely:
Topics Number of Questions Time Allotted
Numerical Ability 26  40 minutes
Verbal Ability 24  30 minutes
Reasoning Ability 30 50 minutes
Programming MCQ  10  15 minutes
Coding Test 1 + 1  15 + 30 minutess
Let me give you a quick insight on the topics and areas that according to me would help you to score a little higher since they hold the highest importance in all of the sections:

1. Numerical Ability:

  • Time & work
  • Profit & Loss
  • Number, decimal fraction
  • Time, Speed & Distance
  • Geometry, coordinate geometry
  • Algebra

2. Verbal Ability:

  • Sentence Ordering
  • Passage Ordering
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Error Identification
  • Error Correction
  • Best Expresses Synonyms

3. Logicial Ability

  • Odd Man Out (both number and logical)
  • Distance and Directions
  • Statement and Conclusion
  • Analogy
  • Data Sufficiency
  • Coding-Decoding

4. Programming Logic

  • Data Structures
    • Queues
    • Linked Lists (Singly, Doubly, Circular)
    • Trees
  •  OOPs
    • Inheritance
    • Abstraction
  • Java

5. Coding

  • String Manipulation
  • Array Manipulation
Since I come from a coding background, it was easy for me to pass the programming rounds but the aptitude and logical got a little critical for me. I passed it though with a border end score. Also this is a mandatory section so there’s no way you can skip this and expect a call. That wouldn’t really happen so it’s best you practise hard and get yourself a guide to pass this test. Mine was Prepinsta. 

Round 2 (Advanced Coding Round)

For Round 2 or the Advanced coding round 15 students from my college were selected. I felt fortunate enough to be selected; all on my luck. If you’ve applied for TCS digital. Your coding area needs to be really strong and hence the double check pattern is introduced for the students. This round ranges from moderate to high difficulty. Though it was quite easy for me to crack it, owing it to my coding skills and intense preparation. If you’re reading this, you’d probably want to know what to practice, so here it is:

Interview Round

Your interview call and eligibility solely depends on your performance in the Advanced Coding Round. So make sure you go about it in the right way. The Interview Round which probably constitutes 2 rounds has been moved upto 3 in TCS. These rounds are in the following sequence:
  • Technical Round
  • Managerial Round
  • HR Round

1. Technical Round:

Technical Round for all the candidates holds the reputation of being the most difficult among the three. The interviewer takes into account your absolute knowledge in technicalities and tricks you into stammering. But be confident and answer them. You’ll pass through it too. PRO TIP: It’s best you mention only those skills and languages that you are actually accustomed with. Trying to prolong your skill list just for the sake of looks can land you in trouble. The interviewer might ask you a question from it and you wouldn’t be able to answer. You can lose your score there.  I started my Interview on call with the panelists and they started the discussion with some general questions eventually locking into the technicals one. Some of the questions that were asked to me are:
  1. Difference between Tree and Graph. What are the applications of Graph?
  2. Benefits of using GitHub.
  3. How to integrate payment gateway into your applications.
  4. Difference between Having and Where Clause.
  5. What is the super class of Exception?
  6. Explain Overloading and Overriding.
  7. What is the angular command to create a component?
  8. Is Bitcoin a part of Blockchain or vice versa?
  9. How can volte work in a 4G mobile?
  10. Difference between Interfaces and abstract classes in Java?
  11. What are OOP’s concepts?
  12. What are IoT and its applications? How the process actually happens
Technical Round can get as difficult as it seems to be but you can definitely score good in it if you have your programming concepts and theory right. Be present in the moment and attentive too.

2. Managerial Round:

The managerial round is more of a technical general knowledge round where the interviewer aims at testing your knowledge about the technological advancements, the giants such as Google, Facebook and others and how the technology brings the impossible into existence.
  1. What system or applications do you think Facebook uses to manage its data worldwide?
  2. How Big Data is stored and managed in organizations?
  3. What ranking system does google follow when a person looks something up on it?
  4. Will you be able to work on any technologies?
This round was over soon enough. I lacked in a few places since i wasn’t updated on this end but I certainly managed my way through it.

3. HR Round:

If you’ve crossed the two rounds already, HR round wouldn’t be a pain for you. It’s a general face-to-face interactive discussion where it’s best if you put forth a few questions too and get to know the company a little better from the inside. This step definitely piques their interest for they come to know if you’re interested in learning or not. Some general questions asked to me were:
  1. Tell me about your family background.
  2. Tell us about your plans of higher studies.
  3. Are you willing to relocate and in any shifts?
  4. How do you think this company will help you to grow in your career?
And that’s it. That was my entire experience with TCS. Just after a couple of days, I received the mail that I’ve been selected for a post in TCS Digital and my happiness knew no bound. I am glad that my hard work was rewarded with my dream job.
