Student Interview

Unlike previous years, this year TCS has changed its pattern for the recruitment process. First, the eligible candidates need to attend for TCS national qualifier test(NQT) followed by technical and personal interviews provided the candidate must have cleared the NQT. 

Since I am from non-cs/it department, I was not sure about coding section preparation. After spending many hours on the internet for the best placements training institute, I came across this website called PrepInsta. I have purchased their 10 days. TCS NQT crash course. 

Trust me guys, the best input you will get from them and talking about their materials, I can not skip the fact that around 80% of the questions had the same pattern as they were in the pro paid materials.

Round 1: Online Test

The first round was an online test that was made up of four sections- aptitude, programming MCQ, coding, and English MCQ. I have prepared from PrepInsta pro-paid materials and referred a few class notes. For coding MCQ and aptitude, I have referred only PrepInsta material.


In this section there were 15 standard questions and 5 advancedquestions.when it comes to standard questions, they were not that difficult and most of the questions were exactly from PrepInsta material. I have tried solving the advanced section, able to solve 2 questions. I have left a few questions which I was not sure enough. The aptitude test mainly covered topics such as:

  1. Probability
  2. permutations and combinations
  3. time and speed
  4. percentages
  5. profit and loss, and
  6. Simple and compound interest.

While preparing for aptitude, firstly I finished practicing the most important topics which were told by PrepInsta according to their analysis. This helped me to prevent wasting time on not so important topics.

2. English MCQ

The second part of the exam was about vocabulary. For this section, I was given 10 minutes. It was quite simple. They have given a paragraph of about 6-8 lines with 10 blanks in between. The student has to choose the best option for each blank(each blank is given with four options). Basic grammar sense helped me to finish this section in 5 minutes. Nothing much tough in this section.

  4.  Programming Logic

For this section as I mentioned earlier, I have referred only PrepInsta pro paid Material. This section contained 7 standard questions and 3 advanced questions. I was able to answer all the 7 standard questions and 2 advanced questions since most of the concepts were similar to the PrepInsta material but left 1 question because I was not sure about the answer from my end.

 5. Coding (Advanced Coding)

The coding section had one question. I have got a program on strings. I was able to run the program without errors. I have passed a few test cases. The program was a bit longer since I have done in C. So I ran out of time and could not modify to makeit pass all the test cases.

So, finally, after my test, I was eagerly waiting for their mail and it dropped in my inbox on 8th October. I haveto  appearing for TCS Ninja  Interview moreover my interview was scheduled for the 12th October 2020
