OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finally the long wait is over i am i TESCO HSC now........ i was in exile for almost 6months after my final sem results......

i dont want to reveal my name and my college name for some personal reasons, but i would like to tell u that i finished my last round of interviews on A WEDNESDAY

TESCO evaluates candidates in 4 rounds, each round is a elimination round

1. written test
2.Technical Interview

4.HR interview


TESCO has a unique kind of aptitude test they do not ask u those regular questions on profit/loss, time and work, speed,ratio.....and so on

written test consists 60q which have to be answered in 60 mins with 0.25 negative mark for each wrong ans,,

the first 15q would be on Blood relations, direction sense test and finding the next element in the series all the questions were easy, i could solve all 15

next few questions were on the verbal ability they would ask u 4q on Antonyms and synonyms which will be followed by
2 long paragraphs which i felt was a quite tough, infact i could not understand one of the paragraphs

next section was the data interpretation test they will give u 2 graphs and 4q on each of them, i was given a linegraph which was very easy to solve but the 2q on Bar graph was very difficult

one unique section in the written test that u will find only in TESCo would be the General Knowledge test, i will contain 20q
some questions were very easy like which company has the tagline "empowering people" (ans. HCL) but there were some tough questions as well,,, i could answer 12 out of 20q


i was very fortunate enough for having cleared the written test......

as soon as i entered in the cabin he told me take a seat,,,,,,, and i replied thank u sir

me: answered ( most of the interviewers start with this ques so be prepared for this )

i have a drastic drop in my academic performance in B.E. when compared to my 10th and 12th so my next ques was to explain this....... so be prepared for ques like this

3q: what do u mean by 4/16/32/64 bit microprocessors
4q: what is PCB
5q: he asked me to write and explain a prg in C
6q: few more questions on Basic C
7q:when i was answering the 6q he suddenly asked me "how often do u smoke" (i really do smoke") i was perplexed when he asked me this q but finally made up my mind and told him "yes" and he told me that i like ur frankness

8q: how good are you at Data structures ( i told him that i am from EC background and i have no idea abt DS)

9q: diff b/w c and c++ and wat is the concept of OOPS(brush up on concepts like polymorophism, dataencapsulation, inheritance, abstractionn,classes)

11q: he told me to explain bubble sort (he was impressed by my explanation)

12q: what do u know abt tesco

13q: any ques for me

14q: are you ready to work in shifts (i said "yes" but i am damn sure even the person who took my interview will not be ready to work in shifts)

finally he told me to wait outside for the next round
