You will be interviewed by three people in a single round. They may call you for another round if TCS's terms and conditions, Job location preference etc. questions are no asked in first round. So don't worry, second round, if any, is HR round.

How to get through Interview?

Before reading further, read my another post on How to Answer HR interview questions!
  • Be prepared to face the interview.

    By prepared means :
    • Carrying all the required documents.
    • Arriving on or before time for Interview.

    • Wearing attractive but not eye catching cloths.
    • Answering well for common Interview Questions :
      • Tell me about yourself?
      • What are your strengths?
      • What are your weaknesses?
      • What are your hobbies?
      • Where do you see yourself 5 years from now?
      • Why should I hire you?
      • Why TCS?
  • Be Confident. Be confident while answering any question. They might ask you same questions multiple time to check you confidence. So be confident in what you say. If you do not know answer of any question then say politely that you don't know. Don't try to confuse them by answering wrong and justifying thereafter. Interviewers are smarter than you. So don't try any trick.
  • Ask questions. If they ask you to ask question then ask at least a question. This tells interview that you are truly interested in this job. If you don't ask any question then it raises doubt in interviewer's mind :
    • Is he/she truly interested?
    • Did he/she understand what I was saying?
    • What is he/she thinking?
    Eliminating any of these questions from interviewer's mind is the best solution to grab the job and leaving the interviewer confident about his decision.
  • In Technical Round, you will be asked basic question from you branch papers. So take a quick look of your branch papers before appearing. Try answering with giving examples to convince them.
  • In Managerial Round, you will be asked managerial questions. So try to give a diplomatic answer. If they insist in knowing your view then tell what you think honestly and justify your answer.
