TESCO PEPER ON 12th NOVEMBER
As all of you know, last sunday i.e., 12th November 2006 I had campus recruitment by TESCO.
I am very happy to say that, I got selected.
I would like to share my experience with respect to written test as well as interview.
Cut off % was 70%. During ppt they have reduced to 69.5%.
I am frank with you that, I could not able to give exact questions. Just I put my experience with few words.
The recruitment process was conducted in THREE phases.
1. Written Test :
Test was conducted by MeritTrack. The test pattern includes three sections of different papers. They are Veral Ability, Analytical and Logical Reasoning.
The first few questions were on synonyms type.
The second section, choosing an appropriate articles.
Third and fourth sections were paragraphs ( two paragraphs), one on E - Commerce and another on DBMS.
In this section,some questions were very easy, and some were confusing. I would like to suggest you that, donot attend this section initially, because it consumes more time.
First 5 to 6 questions were based on Vendiagrams ( Refer R. S. Agarwal Verbal & Non - Verbal Reasoning ==> Puzzle Test chapter), Percentage and profit loss.
Another 5 questions on BODMAS rule. It was very easy. but it was at the end of Anylytical Reasoning section. I would like to suggest you that, try to attend such questions initially, because it saves lot of time.
Another 5 questions on replacing 0 with * and 1 with $. I would like to give a hint to solve this is, what ever the type of equation given, first solve it. And finally you will get one decimal number. Then convert this decimal number to equalent binary form. Finally replace 0 with * and 1 with $. Definately you will get the required result.
Last 5 to 6 questions on Cubes ( Refer R. S. Agarwal Verbal & Non - Verbal Reasoning)
This section is more time cosuming compare to other two sections. Even though, number of questions is very less, but all are lengthy questions and alloted time is very less.
Here one problem on Decision making ( Refer R. S. Agarwal Verbal & Non - Verbal Reasoning )
Coding and Decoding
Visibility test ( three 10 - 15 digit numbers have given, just find out which are same, and which are different), it was very easy.
