TCS Email Writing Round Questions


TCS Technical Round:

In the technical round, some of the subjects that you will be tested include C, JAVA, and DBMS. Along with them, prepare on two more subjects from your branch. In most of the technical interviews, the interview panel will ask your favorite subject- in the case of which you can speak out the subjects that you have prepared.

TCS Managerial Round:

This round is elimination in most of the cases. This is another technical interview but under pressure. Confidence matters a lot in this round as the interviewers are going to check whether one is able to manage the stress or not. The interview panel tries to push one out of one's comfort zone. Keep calm and answer the questions that one knows. If the answer is not known, then don't give up, try attempting it with one's knowledge.

TCS HR Round:

In the HR round, the interview panel questions you everything and anything related to your personality, family, education, hobbies, internships, work experience (if relevant), general knowledge, etc. While we would be sharing various Interview questions based on students' experiences in the Forums of Conduira Online, we suggest you go through GDPI videos in the Learning Center of Conduira Online to understand and to learn the right answers to these questions.
