    I was interviewed through campus.It was a cakewalk because I had good communication skills.Initially they do also take a assessment quiz with Maths and logical section. Assessment Quiz was more so available on internet or check with sample questions.They are generally on the same pattern.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited as part of the University placement drive and the selection process consisted of three phases:

    1) The written Test(120 minutes)

    2) The Technical Interview(Usually around 20 minutes or lesser for a fresh undergraduate but exceptions are possible)

    3) The HR Interview(usually around 20 minutes or less)

    P.S:
    There may also be another extra round called "Management round" after the technical Interview but the likeliness of conducting the management round is dependent on the hiring team's availability of time.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Tata Consultancy Services in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    For people with more then 8.5 CGPA, there is direct interview which is a mixture of both technical and HR. They mostly ask questions from resume and your area of interest. Don't drag answers. Just say up to the point and it'll be over within 10 minutes. If you drag without knowing the answer, they just keep asking questions from your answer.
