TCS NQT is one of the most prominent IT Service and Consultation Company. Recently they visited our college for their ON-campus drive. Therefore, along with my classmates I also registered myself through the link provided by our professors. Being a fresher, I was nervous and excited at the same time. I wanted to be well prepared for all the rounds. Hence, I referred through the last year Prepinsta’s TCS NQT preparation material. Unlike other companies, this company had a specific eligibility criterion, which is detailed below:
The qualifications must be:
||Every Engineering Streams.
||60% in X/XII/UG/Diploma/PG
||1 Active Backlog. (To be cleared within the defined period)
||Overall Gap in Academic Career not to exceed two years
The selection process:
This time TCS changed its selection criteria and introduced a new pattern for both the written test as well as the interview session.
Firstly, there was an online written test in which was divided into four sections whose duration and several questions are detailed below, similar types of questions were there in exam.
Verbal ability questions based on Sentence Completion.
- Time & work
- Profit & Loss
- Number, decimal fraction
- Time, Speed & Distance
- Geometry, coordinate geometry
- Iteration, recursion, procedural vs Oop.
- Data Structure
- Python 2.7
The second step begun only after clearing the written examination. TCS NQT had made the results very narrow and tough this time and fixed the cut-off rate to 10%. Therefore, only 10% of students got the chance of 2 interviews. Thankfully, all my hard work paid off well, and I got selected for the interview sessions.
TCS NQT for Ninja Profile was conducted this interview. It was more of a mixed interview wherein I was asked questions related to Coding, Project details, oops concept and other HR based questions like my Name, Hobbies, my Father’s name, and his occupation, etc.
This round also went pretty well, and eventually, I got selected for the third round, which was the second interview.
The second interview as conducted with TCS Digital. Now, this was the most robust round of all. I was asked to provide details about the logging framework, hotfix, NTFs, and the purpose of service pack. I somehow managed to clear both the interview sessions. And finally got selected for the last HR round.
The HR interview was very simple as the HR made me comfortable by first introducing himself and telling me about the company and its projects. He then asked me to introduce myself and asked about my strengths and weakness. Having experience from the previous tests and interviews, clearing this round was more like a cake walk to me. I was selected for the job and the company emailed me the offer letter.
