TCS Ninja NQT 2018 Interview Experience By A Placed Candidate :
I recently got placed in TCS through TCS NQT 2018.
I am a student of BTECH ECE (2015–19) and currently pursuing my degree from CHANDIGARH ENGINEERING COLLEGE.
I would start from the first phase itself ie the written test.
1.ENGLISH: It generally consist of 10 fill in the blanks questions which are of very easy level. Time:10 min.
2.APTITUDE: You will have 30 minutes to solve 20 questions out of which 15 are of easy level while 5 questions are tough.
Tip: first try to solve easy questions and then move to hard level.
3.Programming Concepts: here you will face 10 questions out of which 7 are easy while 3 are tough. Generally the questions are asked from Data structures and oops. Time:15 min.
4.Programming Logic: here you have to code a problem which is given to you in 20 minutes. The question mainly comes from String or Array Manipulation. I was given with the problem to print this pattern- 0,1,3,4,7,8,11,12,15,16.
Tip: Beware of the Compiler! its pretty slow to execute the code , so first write your code completely and then run it.
10/10 in English
15/20 in Aptitude (easy 13/15 and hard 2/5)
8/10 in programming concept(easy 6/7 and hard 2/3)
1/1 in programming logic.
I got the mail after 6 days that I have cleared the written.
and then I was asked to come to IMS ENGINEERING COLLEGE, GHAZIABAD
on 27th September for the interview process.
Then comes the interview part, it was of moderate level. My interview panel was consisting of Technical Interviewer, Managerial Interviewer and HR.
Most of the questions which were asked to me were of Data Structures and OOPS.
Our conversation was like this-
HR: Hello, introduce yourself
Me: greetings and my introduction.
(Meanwhile TI glanced at my resume.)
TI: Lets start with the procedural, basic principle of OOPS.
TI:Tell me example of polymorphism through a code.
TI: Write a code to insert an node at last of a linked List
TI: Tell me any 5 functions which you have used in PHP (since my projects were websites were I have used PHP)
HR: Design NAND GATE using NOR?
Me: Done (have practiced a hell for this as I was asked a lot of question from this topic in my Deloitte technical interview where I was rejected)
TI: What is the function of Rectifier?
HR: Why TCS?
HR: Why IT industry, while you are from ece?
Me:told my interest for coding and majority of my projects were in coding field.
HR: What if you dont get your desired profile in tcs?
Me: will work in the profile given to me for some time and will try to perform my level best but still after 1 or 2 years if I dont get it, then I will switch to other firm.
Then we had some general discussion over current political situation in INDIA like various schemes of BJP and whats my stand over them.
MR: (Finally!!!) What would you do to your teammate who is not performing well?
then some general behavioural questions were asked and my interview was over in 30 minutes.
Then we were told to leave for the day!!!
