I am going to share my TCS Ninja profile interview experience through this short article to get you a clear idea about the complete hiring process and which types of questions could be asked in the interview.

TCS conducts its competitive programming context named as TCS-Codevita through which it hires many students. If you want to get placed in TCS then you can clear the first round of Codevita with a good rank and then you can get shortlisted for a direct interview. I also had given the Codevita but did not able to crack it. Rather than Codevita, TCS also conducts the one test i.e. TCS National Qualifier Test (TCS-NQT) which consists of two steps, one is we have to give the NQT test and if we are able to crack that exam then we can get shortlisted for an interview.

If you crack this exam according to their cutoff criteria then you can get called for an interview through email. I also cleared that test and got shortlisted for an interview. My interview was conducted on 27 November 2020. There was a panel of 3 persons who were technical, HR, and Managerial persons respectively. I’ll provide the questions which were asked me during the interview in the below paragraph.
