Student Exam Experience

I have received interview calls from various corporates, to name a few – JSW Steel and TATA Group companies. Unlike other tests that just offer a certificate for qualification, TCS iON has also conducted webinars that provided guidance to ace my interviews.

I have received unconditional support from TCS iON in my career progress and my entire experience of the pre and post-tests has been great. I can confidently say that qualifying in a Pan India assessment has helped me gain a new outlook towards life. I strongly recommend this Pan India assessment to all final year candidates.

    ITS Honest And Authentic review guys.
    do believe it or let it go, your wish.

    case1 : tcs conducted a internship drive in my campus. i prepared from free materials of prepinsta, and to my amaze, 45+% are repeated.
    idont know about the rest coz, i studied less and prepared also from the free materials only(ninja material)

    Case 2: date : 30.6.19 : tcs ion ccqt ::
    this time i took paid materials of ccqt of english+reasoning.
    And to my amaze almost 0% came directly from what i studied.
    Abled to attempt like 5/30 in quant, 18-20/30 in english , 13-14/30 in reasoning.

    now next i have ninja and digital exam.
    lets see what happens.
