TCS NQT Aptitude Questions

Interview Experience

Student Interview

We were informed by our professor that the placement drive would begin from next month, and this year, TCS will also be coming for the campus interview. Our professor provided us the registration link so that we can register ourselves for the interview. I contacted my seniors and got information about Prepinsta’s TCS previous year paper based preparation resource for the written round. I immediately started preparing for the drive. There were three rounds in the process of the interview, written test, technical, and HR interview.

Written Test

The first written round had four sections, English, quantitative aptitude, programming concept, and coding.

Technical Interview

We were already informed that the technical round would be tricky, and only 10% of the students will be selected. I was very nervous as I had no idea what type of questions would be asked. There were 2 interviews in the technical round. One was the TCS Ninja, and another was TCS Digital. For the first interview, the few technical questions asked to me were:

Interviewer: What is data encapsulation?

Me: I explained the concept of data encapsulation.

Interviewer: Can you give an example for it?

Me: I gave a real-life example of a different section in the company, like the accounts section, finance section, etc.

Also, the interviewer asked the following questions:

  1. Are there any differences between C++ and JAVA?
  2. Explain the Oops concept and its real-time example.

The interview went for around 25 minutes. After the first interview was over the students shortlisted for the second round were announced. I was selected for the next TCS Digital round.

In the second interview, I was asked questions about my last semester academic project. He then asked me questions about the Artificial intelligence network. and ADHOC network. Further, he asked me to explain the rule mining algorithms for database and how dynamic signature is done using pattern signature. The interview was very difficult, but I somehow managed to crack it and was selected for the third round.

HR Interview Round

The HR round was held after an hour in the seminar hall. The HR was seated there, and he already had my resume with him. The few questions asked to me were:

  1. Introduce yourself.
  2. Why do you want to join TCS?
  3. Are you fine with relocation?
  4. Where do you see yourself in the next five years?

After the interview was over, the result was announced in 3 hours, and I was selected in one of the leading IT Company of India.
