To crack the last round i.e. hands-on coding, your code should run end to end and pass all the test cases. Even after clearing all the first 4 rounds with 100%, you need to clear the last round to crack the exam. If your code doesn’t run your selection is very difficult.

TCS NQT has an overall cutoff which means clearing every section of NQT is not necessary. There is no sectional cutoff in TCS NQT, but the code in the Hands of coding section is mandatory.
