Round 1: First round was all about the written test which was the TCS National Qualifier Test(NQT).The NQT is a 90 minutes test. It comprises of 4 sections: English, Quantitative Aptitude, and Programming Concepts & Coding. You need to clear the round 1 i.e the NQT written test to proceed for the interview. The result of the NQT test is declared within 7-10 days and the dates for the interview will be sent via mail within a few days.
I was selected in the first round and got an interview date for the TCS Ninja position. Some of my friends who did well in the NQT test had to give another test for the TCS Digital position. After qualifying the Digital test the interview was held on the same date sent via mail. After the interview you will either get a Ninja position or Digital position or no offer.
Round 2: It’s the interview round where 3 panels would be present i.e Technical, Managerial, and HR. Sometimes only the Technical and HR are present. In my case only the Technical and HR were present.
Firstly the HR asked, ” Tell something about yourself that is not present in your resume”.
Then the Technical guy started asking questions. He asked about the programming languages(C, C++, Java, Python) that I know. Then he asked questions related to DBMS and OS. They basically ask questions on programming languages known, DBMS and OS.
The questions asked are,
- What is RDBMS?
- Indexing in PL/SQL.
- what is OS?
- State 3 functionalities of OS.
- Difference between RAM and ROM.
- What is main memory?
The interview was around of 10-15 mins.
I think this might be helpful for students aspiring to be a part of TCS.
