About 90% of your paper in TCS exam will be from our TCS Questions, given on our TCS Main Dashboard

For this you can visit our TCS email Writing Dashboard here.


Number of Words

  • Minimum – 50 Words
  • Maximum – 100 Words

Considering the tcs email writing rules according to me an ideal  email in TCS Placement Papers email Writing Section must be small and should not contain unnecessary information that should deviate from direct call to action for the email thus ideally you should write the email covering up most of the phrases that they will provide to you that is important and write and email in about 80 – 85 words in tcs email writing rules.


For example, they give you the following email with these phrases this was asked in TCS Placement Papers email Writing – 

Write to the HR of “ABC Limited” for problems you are facing in doing internship from there.

Intership from ABC Limited – project manager – unavailable – holiday leave 1 month – no industry exposures – mentor unavailable – access right – manufacturing area – not given – suggest solution HR.


In email Writing for TCS a 80 word email is enough. What they will award points or deduct points on are the following –

  • Spellings
  • Punctuations
  • Grammar
  • Paragraphisation(Divide in 2 Para)
  • Using heavy words that are considered to be proficient in English will not award extra points
  • Thus it is advisable to write in normal English with good grammar and spelling and punctuation in TCS email Topics.
