    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was a campus drive and I'm a 2011 passed out. Interviewed by three people for 30 mins. Two of them will be questioning you. I got resume related questions and i answered all of them. Basically it is easier to get placed in MNC's like TCS if you are coming from a reputed college or university. All you need to do it be passionate and show the ease of interest in you. You'll be hired !!

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Once you clear the aptitude test(level one)..ur 75% done!We then move on to the Technical interview.The interviewers were really friendly...especially mine.There was a lady and a gentleman.

    I opened the door and asked their permission to enter,with a 1000W smile on my face.They asked me take my seat...I thanked them and sat down.My resume was on my lap..they never asked for it.All they reffered to was the application form that I had filled the previous day.

    The gentleman(sadly i do not remember his name) asked me as to,why i had scored low in my 10th and semester(70% cbse and 71.25% aggr respectively).Maybe he wanted to break the ice by asking an imformal questions...anyway my reply was confident.He then asked me about my favourite subject,which was as i said,Physics(surprisedso was i,when he asked about school subjects!!).

    He asked me what SONAR meant...i really did'nt remember..so i managed by telling him,it was related with sound and had DOPPLER EFFECT as a basis.He said,"Thats good.But can you explain?"Now where was I to go for an explanantionI told him i did'nt remember.

    Then he asked me about Concave & Convex Lens and Keplers Law Of Gravitation.I did not answer those questions correctly,so we moved on to the core subjects(at last!!!!).

    My areas of interest are DBMS and s/w engg..and the madam started this time around.She asked me about the Various Phases of S/w Enggineering (a very genreal question)..I was able to answer it.

    Then i was asked to write a c-program to reverse a string(a success) and later on,the question was about Singularly Linked-List from Data-Structures.And finally,DBMS concepts were touched upon....i spoke confidentally for two minutes,when they asked me to stop!!I had the feeling things were going to turn out well...!

    In between I had actually stammered once,but I was not reprimanded.They reassured me by letting me know that they knew exactly how I was feeling.I was asked to relax,ask a cup of water if needed and then to continue…from hereon I spoke confidently till the end of the HR,making sure i made no lapse in speech.

    At the end,they asked me wether I had any questions..I enquired about the prospect of higher education through TCS.After giving me satisfactory answers,they asked to wait outside.

    And there I was,waiting nervously outside my TECHNICAL interview room...and when finally,I was asked to go down for the MR(same as HR) interview.....RELIEF ebbed through my entire body.I knew for sure that once I had reached this level,i was not going to return home disappointed.
