Submitted by - Souvik Kundu

Meghnad saha institute of technology, West Bengal

I recently participated in a POOL-campus TCS recruitment drive and total participated student were 330 from our college MSIT, kolkata.

TCS recruitment process consists of 2 parts:

1) 90 min test consisting of:

    i) email writing of 10 min

    ii)aptitude questions of 40 min

    iii)C concept MCQ of 20 min

    iv)1 coding question based on C of 20 min.

2)Technical + HR interview



For me First round was easy to medium .

In case of email writing , the topic was very easy means general common topic. my topic was "your project won the best innovative project of the year, so write a email to your project manager to thank you him for his helping hand and supportive role."

In case of Aptitude round, the questions was easy to medium level for first 18 questions , 2 questions were bonus marks but those questions were hard .

In case C mcq. the questions was easy for CS and IT stream students ,very basic questions.

In case of coding round , our question was to write a program to reverse a number (we can use scanf)

Input: 12345

Output: 54321
