I attended the TCS National Test – 2018. The test was conducted on 1st September 2018. At that time, I was in my B.Tech final year. After a few days of the test, the result was announced. I had qualified in this written round and was on cloud 9. This was the first time I had cleared any national level test, which made me proud.

All the candidates who has cleared the test got a mail from TCS, which was an invitation to attend another interview round. I received it too and was all set to attend a second round which was the technical round.

On the interview day, I went to the venue and submitted my CV at the registration desk. I also had to submit a copy of my application form. Fortunately, I was carrying it. After that we were summoned one by one for the interview. There were multiple panels seated in different interview rooms.

I gave this technical interview my best shot but did not get through, and naturally was extremely disappointed.

💡Quick Tip: You can easily apply for the TCS mass recruitment test online or through your college’s placement cell. Once you clear the first round, your interview is 90% done!

This place has the roots of Wudang Kung Fu, and this form of martial arts originated here. I would also like to visit Brazil as it is the place of origin of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Q6. Fair enough. What languages do you code in?

Answer: I like to code in Python for its simple syntax. It is the lingua franca of coding of our generation.

Q7. That’s a powerful statement! Python will not replace C and C++. Nor will it kill off Java or JavaScript ever. Why not learn Go and Rust instead? Anyway, since you like Python, let me ask you a few questions.

Answer: Sure.

Q8. What is PEP 8?

Answer: Its a coding convention or a set of recommendation for Python.

Q9. What tools find bugs or help perform static analysis?

Answer: PyChecker is a static analysis tool for bug detection where Python is the source code. Thats the only one I remember Sir.

Q11. What is Dict and List comprehension?

Answer: They are syntax constructions.

Q12. What is namespace in Python?

Answer: I do not remember Sir.

Q13. Why lambda forms in python lack statements?

That is how my interview went. I could have arrived better prepared, especially in Python. I am still trying to crack this placement test. I will keep trying until I crack it. Someone advised me that patience is the key. Hope my TCS fresher interview experience for Asst Software Engineer helps you prepare well. All the best!
