I-Flex Placement Paper

 

Paper Type : Whole Testpaper
Test Date : 16 March 2008
Test Location : MAIT, Sec-22, Rohini, Delhi

I FLEX PAPER ON 16th MARCH AT DELHI

I appeared in the i-flex paper on 16th at MAIT rohini delhi. There were around 2800 students from 35 colleges who appeared for the test.

Out of which only 509 cleared the written exam, and i was one of them. There were 60 questions to be done in 60 min.(+1 for right answer and -.25 for wrong answer). It was different from last time as last time there was 50 q and paper was divided into 5 sections...

There were two sections
1. Quant+Logic(40 questions)

This section contained q from blood relations, logical deductions, puzzle test, coding decoding, profit and loss, trains and boats problems, age problems etc... The questions were really simple and I managed to do 31 questions in 40 min. then i shifted to english section.

2. English(20 questions)

This sections was also very easy. It conatined q like antonyms, synonyms, reading comprehension(quite easy), articles, ordering the sentences etc...I managed to do 18 q from this sections in one go and still i had 2-3 min left.

Then i shifted to section 1 and did 2 questions in that section. So atlast i managed to do 51 questions in 1 hour.

The written test was quite easy most of the questions were from R.S Aggarwal (quant, verbal and non verbal reasoning) so do prepare the relevent chapters from this book specially the logical part bcoz quant was very easy.

The questions were very easy so the main catch was the time management. So do manage your time as there was sectional cut off and it will increase your chances of getting in.

Around 3:00 P.M the result was announced and i got selected for the next round of interviews.

There were 2 interviews Technical and HR

1.Technical Interview

I was waiting for my interview on 17th march since morning and finally at 8:15 P.M the moment came when i was called for the first personnel interview of my life. The interviewer was very calm and soft spoken person. He read my form and asked me about my project(bcoz it was the only technical thing mentioned in that form). I explained him and answered some of his questions regarding my project. Then he asked me to write a simple program on file handling using c++ b coz i hve used file handling in my project. I took 10 min, i wrote the program, and explained it to him. Then he shifted to DBMS and asked me to write querries of joins, I simply denied and said i can xpalin you the meaning of joins but cant write querries for it. I explained him the joins and this ended my technical interview.

After about half an hour the person came and said that you hve cleared the interview and are seleected for HR interview.
My advice is to be simple and truthful. If you dont know anything simply say no to them. If you try to confuse them you are just reducing your chances.

2.HR Interview

This was very short, it was over in a flash. May be bcoz i was the last candidate to be interviewed on that day. He asked me that why you dont hve any breaks in your study( he was indirectly asking why i hadnt dropped an year and prepeared for iit/jee). Then he asked me whether i have any problems in relocation, my answer was no. Then he asked me for my mark sheets and this ended my HR interview.

On 19th march I got the news form my college that i am selected in the 22 out of 29 students who hve cleared the written test from our college.

So be focused and manage your time properly if you want to clear.
Best of Luck.......

TCS PAPER ON 29th SEPTEMBER 2007 in mait campus
Hiii Friends........i am a mait student and now working in tcs
Now I come to the main point. The TCS Recruitment followed the following PHASES when I appeared:-
1. Written Test:
  a. Verbal.
  b. Aptitude.
  c. Critical Reasoning.
Friends this is the first phase of the recruitment. In this almost all old papers are sufficient to prepare for. Aptitude is not that much tough. For apti RS Agarwal is more then sufficient & please refer the old papers also. But verbal & CR is a little bit tough & most of the part comes from GRE Barron 12th Edition. In verbal, synonyms & antonyms come. It seems easy in first site but the words are too tough. In CR almost Questions come frm Barron's Test Series that are in the above said book.

2. Phychometry Test:
Well friends when I appeared for TCS this phase was skipped. But as much I know abt TCS they ppl take it & mostly elimination is done in this phase. I have not much idea abt this phase.

3. Interview:
Friends if u are at this stage then congratulations I think u have done almost 70% to have entry in TCS. Friends in my interview there were 3 ppl. In that 2 were technical guys & 1 was a HR lady. All three were too cool.

They had asked the following questions:
1. Tell us about urself
2.. What is the meaning of "#include " in any c program?
3. What types of files are created in having any C program & wats the exact procedure?
4. What do you mean by Virtual Table, Virtual Function & Friend Function?
5. What do you mean by normalization?
6. They had given me a table & asked me that how many tables will be created after normalization?
7. Then I have told them that my favourite subject is ERP the have asked me what is ERP?
8. Is email system is also an ERP system, prove also?
9. On which serever Oracle Apps work, Apache or Tomcat?
10.To write the subjects in the last semester.
11. What do u mean by Virtual Reality?
12. What do u mean by Multimedia?
13. What is the difference between JPEG & GIF?
14. What is compression?
15. What is the internal functioning of ZIP?
16. What about relocation?
17. If offered at Afghanistan....?
18. What are your weakneses.....?
19. What are your strengths....?
20. Give examples to prove that you are determind......means strengths & weaknesses.....
21. Do you want to ask any questions....?
23. They have just given a statement just to check the presence of mind.......They have given a wrong statement...I think they want to see wheter I will correct it or not..." They said that u are learning ERP.... I said yes sir. Then after few min, they said that u are learning Oracle Databases.....Then I have make correct them that I am learning Oracle Applications 11i not Oracle Databases. They replied that these are the same...Then I again proved them that these two are much different...."
24. Are you agree with 2 years bond with TCS?
25. There is one more round after all this MEDICAL....are u ready for that....?
     
Friends I want to tell you one thing that if you are fresher & confident then you will be the part of TCS surely. They ppl check your presence of mind, smartness & your power of difficult situtation handelling. If you are giving the tech answers wrong you must be confident.( But not all questions frnds, for few quest only). They ignore 2-3 wrong answers but not more then that.......
 
4. HR:
Friends if u have cleared the tech round then u will be asked to go for HR. But sometimes they take HR & Tech both rounds in one interview. In my case my both rounds were in one interview(HR+TECH). I had impressed my interviewers with my tech & hr questions. I had given almost all tech answers right. I had cleared the HR queries very confidently.

5. Managerial Round:
Friends if you have cleared the tech round then you were asked to go for MR. But some times they dont take MR. It depends on the format of their selection. I was not asked to appear for the MR. If u cleared the above 4 rounds then you are 99% in TCS untill or unless You dont give any stupid answer or you loose ur confidence. Please have a look on TCS site atleast once b4 appearing in MR.
             
Friends in the end I would like to say that TCS is not impossible for freshers. Just plan well & do a smart work & surely you will be in TCS. It was my first call from any company & b4 it I had not appered for any test or not get even single call. But even though I cleared it......Believe in "ALMIGHTY".......He is gr8 & help you not to loose ur patience. Give your 100%. "DO THE BEST & LEAVE THE REST" & "PRAY WORKS, PRAY ONLY WORKS". So All The Best friends.....
Meet you in TCS....

Bye,
Nikhil Jain

now the D day experience...

Told ma mom to wash and iron ma lucky shirt..one which i wore day b4..
small superstitions..i dnt believe in.. but they give a sense of confidence..

nehow..
reached clg..nd had the interview..the person sitting outside the
rooms..panel 4 nd 5..wished me nd ma frnd.gud luck..nd the person comin
out of the room..made all kinds of strange faces..suggesting that
interviewer sabki maar rha hai.
...he was somewhat successful...in creatin a fear-provoking environment...he he

I went inside.. wished sir....nd fear had somewhat subsided by then..signed some docs..
and the round started with the old typical question..y u shifting from Electrical to IT..??

I answered the question..but not with what i had been cramming..since the placement drive started.. IT industry has great opportunity and growth etc,,, everything I crammed before stayed inside only..

the
second ques....we were sitting in a computer lab one to one...so he
pointed towards an old computer and asked me to upgrade it...to a new
high performance PC
this was ma chance nd i grabbed it with both hands...

told
about various processors quad core..which one wud suit needs,..nd the lookout fr
a compatible motherboard....RAM 4gb..HD 320 gb..etc..

(p.s. Remember this was 2.5 years back... nowadays even 1TB hard disk looks meagre)

thanks to BHAI...he had helped me assembling my own pc.. nd i myself fit in all those parts....sry ..not exactly maself..he he  strike 1

cumin
bak to int/.sir asked me wat else???... i shifted to the cd writers
etc..i said instead of a dvd burner i'll suggest a blu-ray disc
burner.. no points fr guessing wat was the next ques.. what is blu ray...??? I gave a presentation on this topic in college so I was quite well versed with it.. strike 2..

comfortably answered them.. we had all sorts of discusions.. about sony playstation price..of one with a blu ray disc.. to me being a FORMULA 1 fan...names of drivers of force india..
my passion for cricket..he asked me the latest score...ind aus 1st final.. (i had called home just 15 min b4 the int to know the score..he he) he was impressed with my update on the game people follow as a religion...strike 3 ... sumtimes things that people feel are less important are the ones that fetch you some bonus brownie points..


Now... he asked me to calculate the volume of an almirah. in cubic feet... i stood up nd measurd..wrt to ma height...m 6 ft btw.. strike 4.. a very important thing.. presence of mind...
he asked me to settle down..nd his final words fr me were .."i m thru with ur interview..any ques.."

it was a dream interview...i cudnt hav wished fr more..

few
min passed..i started goin bak to the parking lot...heard sumone screaming..ma name...PRABHAT PRABHAT.....just turned...ma frns came charging towards me...
"tera naam hai list me..."...''tera naam hai..."
that infi guy..mistakenly missed ur name...  :gunfr
