The recent TCS selection process consists of 2 procedures:-
1> Online aptitude test
1> Online apti:- this part consisted of 3 sections...
Verbal (25 q/s,20 mins),
Quantative (38 q/s,40 mins) and
Critical reasoning (12 q/s,30 mins)
u hav to start wid the Verbal section first. Its compulsory and aftr every time limit the current section automatixcally vanishes and the next section comes in. So keep an eye on the time...there is no upper/sessional cut off and the total cut off is around 50-60%....
For the Verbal part, I would suggest evrybody to leave it on luck. I had jst 1 antonym common and i gt the time 2 finish jst 1 passage out of 2.. for all the rest q/s i marked "c"... later i found out that 5 were correct.. luck as u may say it:)
For the quantitive reasoning i wud suugest practise and practise sums like... time and work, ratio, percentage, etc.... first try to attmpt q/s that u knw and can answer.. I did 28 out of 38 and the rest i marked "c" like before ..
For the Critical reasoning i wud again suggest you to practise... read the sum carefully and create blocks/graph to represnt the sum answer the q/s seeing the block /graph.... I think i got 10 q/s correct. out of 180.. 146 cleared the apti (leaving out the 4 from the automobile dept... they usually dnt take aue/me)
2> hra+technical:-- the q/s were simple and basic TECHNICAL:-
