Hello Everyone it was my first placement drive experience that too in such an amazing company like TCS.
Round 1: CODING
First was the open coding challenge by TCS. We were given 6 coding questions to do in 6 hours. I did only on question “Square free number” I’ll be sharing all the problem statements too. The criteria was to solve at least on problem completely, means all the test cases and we may submit any number of times. But there was a twist. This test was for both the TCS NINJA(3.36 pa) and DIGITAL(6.5 pa) profile. The difference was to be seen in the interview process.
85 students from my college cleared the first round, including me.
Round 2: Technical interview
We were mailed the details of the interview process. Since the number of selected students from my college was large so the pool interview process held at my college Graphic Era (Deemed To Be) University in Uttrakhand. We were asked to be present at the venue at 9:00 am and without the delay the process started at 10:00 am. There were 7 panels for the interview process. They first started calling girls for the Tech interview. Questions asked were mediocre and basically from c, algo, algo, apti, DBMS and languages known and projects undertaken.
My turn came up at around 5:00 pm. I went in the room and there were two of’em.Both of them were too friendly.Thus the nervousness was just till i entered the room, and was gone afterwards.

Results Were mailed to us after 8 days of the process.
All the students who cleared the technical round were selected for the TCS NINJA profile and 5 out of the 54 selects were chosen for DIGITAL profile and all the NINJA selects were given chance to sit for the NQT level 2 exam for digital profile too.
And That’s it.
