TCS Placement Paper : TCS Bhopal 12 October 2012

first of all prepare yourself for aptitude (in aptitude or written round each company having there specific topic which you search according with the help of previous paper and remember don,t waste your time in preparing the topic which they don,t ask in exam )

Aptitude round is much easier if u prepare well

One thing which is mostly every good student done in exam is that he attempt all the ques. correct that is also the reason of "overcut off" always some question ppr to average limit not attempt all the ques. attempt only those question in which u r sure =D don,t attempt the ques. in which u r in dough and before going for aptitude please also give some online mock test which helps you to reduce your heartbeat at the time of exam and also reduce your chances of silly mistakes

Now as u clear the written then the next step is your technical round then your HR round then if u perform not well in the above two round only then u get call for MR(managing round) otherwise 2 round id enough for them to check you

Don,t get hesitate or nervous this is natural to every one but control on it is not a typical task this can also be done by practice or meditation

OK as i clear the aptitude round then the next day at 13 Oct they call us for the technical or HR round

In technical they simply focus on your language skill and your project work and internship training so clear the basics of all these

As in my resume I have written the C language so they ask me to write the program of Fibonacci series (mug up the simple program of C if u mention the C language whether u r CS or any other stream) then comes the subject work which I mention the database which is also my favorite subject they as me to write the query on SQL how to create alter and modify the table in database they simply ask you DBMS ,ORDBMS and RDBMS or normalization so clear all these topics then they comes to CN which i mention in my resume they ask me simple ques on CN which is types of CN and why we use networking..

Don,t be quite say something which u know about the topic they just want to judge how you smartly done the work

Be loud so that the HR becomes able to listen what you are saying

Then comes my HR round

In HR , he ask me

Tell me about yourself

Then prepare a brief and precise a intro of yourself and prepare well in front of mirror you can also help your friend to take interview of yourself so that u know the mistake of your and you will work on it also take the help of your mobile phone by making the video of your and check your mistake

Once you start giving the intro if somehow u will stop then cover your 10th and 12th per. and family detail this will proof to be a good intro of 3-5 min which makes a good impression on interviewer

Then he ask some personal info of your tell each and every things

It is not necessary to be a true person just modulate your answer accordingly in front of him the only thing you have to do is to impress the HR so that he purchase you at any cost in which your study part is not matters

IN the MR round he simply ask for some tricky or crazy ques which is of just to check you so don,t get angry in giving the answer to that question

You have to only open all the ways to answer that ques HR will not expect you to give the exact ans to the ques but he only wants you to expect that how you better give idea to a problem if you are in the situation

Remember one thing that he is the person comes in your life to reduce your tension and offer you job so if he ask something which is person then don,t get angry on him he just want to check how u manage the things if it comes on your personal life. just enjoy the interview with great fun definitely you will get in this is my personal experience says thanks for spending a good time to prepare yourself for the campus round

TCS Placement Paper : Tata Consultancy Services 10 November 2012

There were 3 rounds in this overall selection procedure

1. Online Aptitude (30 ques, 80 mins)

2. Technical round

3. HR round

This year the total selection procedure (especially aptitude ques patterns) was quite different and little bit harder than the previous ones. Only 21 out of 219 students from our college got selected in aptitude test and combining with Top 5s from all the departments, total 46 students appeared for the Technical and HR interview. Finally 24 students got selected by TCS from our college. Luckily I was one of the selected candidates and I would like to share my interview experience with you all :)

As I was among top 5, so directly selected for the Technical and HR rounds and it was quite like this.

ME: May I come in Sir (with a pleasant smile)

TR: Yes

ME : Thank you sir.

TR: Amrita, please sit down and introduce yourself

ME: Gave my intro and they were satisfied (friends, please be specific and donâ€™t take so much time to describe yourself. U can mention some important achievements or activities done by you).

TR1: So, U have learned C, Java right? Which programs have u done?

ME: mentioned around 6-7 important programs which I could able to remember at that time.

TR1: OK. Write the program of Fibonacci series and explain the logic.

ME: Wrote the program and Explained.

TR1: (satisfied) Any other programs ?

ME: Explained 2-3 programs.

TR1: Do you think, C++ has any advantage over C ?

ME: Yes sir, Of course.

TR1: How?

ME: Explained.

TR1: What is data abstraction?

ME: Told.

TR: Give me some real life Examples of Object and Class.

ME: Told .

TR: What is DBMS? Explain.

ME: Explained (Try not to give only definition..give some real life applications or advantages of it).

TR: What is the difference b/w DBMS and RDBMS?

ME: Explained and they were satisfied (by their face)

TR: What is Join operation in DBMS?

ME: Told.

Now, there was another TR who took my project file and asked ,

TR2: So, is this project completed and worked already?

ME: Yes sir, its completed and worked successfully.

TR2: Which portion have you done?

ME: Told.

TR2: So, U must have ideas about tables and queries..

ME: Yes sir, I think.

Another interviewer took a paper and drew 2 tables,

TR1: Now tell me how would you find subject wise marks of student 1 in an ordered manner from maximum to minimum, joining this two tables?

ME: ( This time I had to think for a while as I was not prepared so much this time for the join operations and at that moment I couldn,t recall max to min) I tried to write the query as per I could recall those.

TRs: (they looked at my query) Its almost done..just try for a while.

ME: (I tried for a while) And I was very near to the solution.

TR: Its OK.Leave it .

(It doesn,t matter if u completely solve some questions or not..they were looking at my attitude if I am trying or not. So try your best to solve if possible and keep confidence)

TR: what is normalization? Why we need it?

ME: Told.

TR: Do you think these two tables are normalized?

ME: No sir, its not.

TR: Then normalize these tables.

ME: Again got a little strike but I tried to solve that.

Now they asked something totally related to my project which I answered correctly.

In this interview, 3 panels were in front of me. 2 techs. and 1 HR( in the same table) and the HR and technical questions were asked simultaneously.(like rapid fire :D) but for better understanding, m writing it differently. The questions were:

-> Introduce yourself

(It would be better to make an eye contact not only while introducing but also throughout the whole interview)

-> What are your hobbies?

(be ready to face everything related to your hobby because they ask various questions regarding your interest. Like, for mine, singing, then which type of singing, something regarding my music sites or reading novels, then which type of novel..then describe some of them, if its reading newspaper, then donâ€™t forget to go through todayâ€™s headlines..etc).

-> Why would you like to choose IT industry?

-> Why TCS? (most common)

-> Have you any problem with relocation?

-> Have you any problem with night shifts if some day works extend?

-> Do you have any queries?

(Asked about two projects undertaken by TCS because I was interested to know something about those)

MR: OK thanks Amrita :)

ME: Thank you very much Sir. :)

My interview was for around 45 mins. All of us were waiting eagerly to know the result. Finally they came to announce it at about 7 p.m, 24 students were selected from our college and thanks to God! That I was among them! :)

It was totally a different day of my life and to all who were along with me. All I can say is that, be confident and try to keep calm and cool attitude throughout the interview. Their behaviour was very friendly (believe me they are human too and not a thing of panic or any alien what we sometimes think . :D). So, all the best to all who is going to appear for the interview and thanks to all for reading this :) hope it will help u a little.

TRs: (they looked at my query) Its almost done..just try for a while.

ME: (I tried for a while) And I was very near to the solution.

TR: Its OK.Leave it .

(It doesn,t matter if u completely solve some questions or not..they were looking at my attitude if I am trying or not. So try your best to solve if possible and keep confidence)

TR: what is normalization? Why we need it?

ME: Told.

TR: Do you think these two tables are normalized?

ME: No sir, its not.

TR: Then normalize these tables.

ME: Again got a little strike but I tried to solve that.

Now they asked something totally related to my project which I answered correctly.

In this interview, 3 panels were in front of me. 2 techs. and 1 HR( in the same table) and the HR and technical questions were asked simultaneously.(like rapid fire :D) but for better understanding, m writing it differently. The questions were:

-> Introduce yourself

(It would be better to make an eye contact not only while introducing but also throughout the whole interview)

-> What are your hobbies?

(be ready to face everything related to your hobby because they ask various questions regarding your interest. Like, for mine, singing, then which type of singing, something regarding my music sites or reading novels, then which type of novel..then describe some of them, if its reading newspaper, then donâ€™t forget to go through todayâ€™s headlines..etc).

-> Why would you like to choose IT industry?

-> Why TCS? (most common)

-> Have you any problem with relocation?

-> Have you any problem with night shifts if some day works extend?

-> Do you have any queries?

(Asked about two projects undertaken by TCS because I was interested to know something about those)

MR: OK thanks Amrita :)

ME: Thank you very much Sir. :)

My interview was for around 45 mins. All of us were waiting eagerly to know the result. Finally they came to announce it at about 7 p.m, 24 students were selected from our college and thanks to God! That I was among them! :)

It was totally a different day of my life and to all who were along with me. All I can say is that, be confident and try to keep calm and cool attitude throughout the interview. Their behaviour was very friendly (believe me they are human too and not a thing of panic or any alien what we sometimes think . :D). So, all the best to all who is going to appear for the interview and thanks to all for reading this :) hope it will help u a little.

I Know the tension we have before attending an interview. This is the experience of my first interview .I am very Happy to share this with you.

First of all, I would like to tell you that confidence is the only key.

Top 5 persons have NO written test.so,I have direct way to interviews. Also, for the first 25 members Both technical and MR were conducted at a time. So, we have TR+MR and HR .

I waited since a long time from 5 pm to 10 pm and for each person he is taking minimum 50 min. so finally my turn came at around 10 pm.

Before going into the room I feel tensed. But once I entered they are really experienced in making you feel comfortable. There is No single moment in my interview where I felt tensed.

I went into the room and I spotted two interviewers and greeted them.

Me: once hod mam asked me to explain something to all d students(flash)(continued that for 2 min).That is my greatest achievement

INT1:Being an ece student why tcs??

Me: Sir, IT provides global services anywhere .once if you enter into core industry you have to stick to that once but IT can provide solution to any organization. Moreover In TCS is also more concerned with comm., that is the main reason.

INT1: Do you know assembly lang??

Me: Yes sir..i also used it in my mini project

INT1:can you explain that program logic.

Me:Actually, I don,t know much about the logic. But I found that the interview has very less knowledge on electronics. So, I explained it for nearly 10 mins.

INT1: What are the recent technologies in software?

Me: confused with the question.. ledtv, augmented reality.

INT2: Uou are telling about your core trends. Anything related to software ?

21. Alok and Bhanu play the following min-max game. Given the expression N = 15 + X+(Y- Z) Where X, Y and Z are variables representing single digits (0 to 9), Alok would like to maximize N while Bhanu would like to minimize it. Towards this end, Alok chooses a single digit number and Bhanu substitutes this for a variable of her choice (X, Y or Z).

Assuming both play to their optimal strategies, the value of N at the end of the game would be?

22. Alice and Bob play the following coins-on-a-stack game. 20 coins are stacked one above the other. One of them is a special (gold) coin and the rest are ordinary coins. The goal is to bring the gold coin to the top by repeatedly moving the topmost coin to another position in the stack.

Alice starts and the players take turns. A turn consists of moving the coin on the top to a position i below the top coin (0 = i = 20). We will call this an i-move (thus a 0-move implies doing nothing). The proviso is that an i-move cannot be repeated; for example once a player makes a 2-move, on subsequent turns neither player can make a 2-move. If the gold coin happens to be on top when it,s a player,s turn then the player wins the game. Initially, the gold coins the third coin from the top. Then

This maximum probability is?

24 There are two water tanks A and B, A is much smaller than B. While water fills at the rate of 1 litre every hour in A, it gets filled up like, 10, 20, 40, 80, 160 in tank B. (At the end of first hour, B has 10 litres, second hour it has 20 litres and so on). If tank B is 1/16 filled of the 3 hours, what is total duration of hours required to fill it completely?

a) 7 B) 6 c) 5 d) 9

Solution: for every hour water in tank in B is doubled,

Let the duration to fill the tank B is x hours.

X/16 part of water in tank of B is filled in 3 hours,

Next hour it is doubled so,

2*(x/16) part i.e. (x/8) part is filled in 4 hours,

Similarly (x/4)th part in 5 hours,(x/2)th part is filled in 6 hours,

(x)th part is filled in 7 hours

So answer is 7 hours.

25. For the FIFA world cup, Paul the octopus has been predicting the winner of each match with amazing success. It is rumoured that in a match between 2 teams A and B, Paul picks A with the same probability as A,s chances of winning.

19. In a school, for a student out of 100 he got 74 of average for 7 subjects and he got 79 marks in the 8th subject. What is the average of the entire subject?

20 On the planet Oz, there are 8 days in a week- Sunday to Saturday and another day called Oz day. There are 36 hours in a day and each hour has 90 min while each minute has 60 sec. As on earth, the hour hand covers the dial twice every day.

Find the approximate angle between the hands of a clock on Oz when the time is 12:40 am.

21. Alok and Bhanu play the following min-max game. Given the expression N = 15 + X+(Y- Z) Where X, Y and Z are variables representing single digits (0 to 9), Alok would like to maximize N while Bhanu would like to minimize it. Towards this end, Alok chooses a single digit number and Bhanu substitutes this for a variable of her choice (X, Y or Z). Alok then chooses the next value and Bhanu, the variable to substitute the value. Finally Alok proposes the value for the remaining variable. Assuming both play to their optimal strategies, the value of N at the end of the game would be?

22. Alice and Bob play the following coins-on-a-stack game. 20 coins are stacked one above the other. One of them is a special (gold) coin and the rest are ordinary coins. The goal is to bring the gold coin to the top by repeatedly moving the topmost coin to another position in the stack.

Alice starts and the players take turns. A turn consists of moving the coin on the top to a position i below the top coin (0 = i = 20). We will call this an i-move (thus a 0-move implies doing nothing). The proviso is that an i-move cannot be repeated; for example once a player makes a 2-move, on subsequent turns neither player can make a 2-move. If the gold coin happens to be on top when it,s a player,s turn then the player wins the game. Initially, the gold coins the third coin from the top. Then

23. There are two boxes, one containing 10 red balls and the other containing 10 green balls. You are allowed to move the balls between the boxes so that when you choose a box at random and a ball at random from the chosen box, the probability of getting a red ball is maximized. This maximum probability is?

24 There are two water tanks A and B, A is much smaller than B. While water fills at the rate of 1 litre every hour in A, it gets filled up like, 10, 20, 40, 80, 160 in tank B. (At the end of first hour, B has 10 litres, second hour it has 20 litres and so on). If tank B is 1/16 filled of the 3 hours, what is total duration of hours required to fill it completely?

a) 7 B) 6 c) 5 d) 9

Solution: for every hour water in tank in B is doubled,

Let the duration to fill the tank B is x hours.

X/16 part of water in tank of B is filled in 3 hours,

Next hour it is doubled so,

2*(x/16) part i.e. (x/8) part is filled in 4 hours,

Similarly (x/4)th part in 5 hours,(x/2)th part is filled in 6 hours,

(x)th part is filled in 7 hours

So answer is 7 hours.

25. For the FIFA world cup, Paul the octopus has been predicting the winner of each match with amazing success. It is rumoured that in a match between 2 teams A and B, Paul picks A with the same probability as A,s chances of winning. Let,s assume such rumours to be true and that in a match between Ghana and Bolivia, Ghana the stronger team has a probability of 2/3 of winning the game. What is the probability that Paul will correctly pick the winner of the Ghana-Bolivia game?

26. In the reading room of a library, there are 10 tables, 4 chairs per table. In each table there are different numbers of people seated. How many max no. Of tables will be left out without at least 1 person?

a) 8 b) 6 c) 2 d) 7

27. (40*40*40 - 31*31*31)/(40*40+40*31+31*31)=?

a) 8 b) 9 c) 7 d) 5

Solution: a3 -b3 = (a-b)*(a2+a*b+b2) so from this formula we will find (a-b) value

28. Out of 7 children the youngest is boy then find the probability that all the remaining children are boys

a)1/64 b)1/32 c)1/128 d)1/256

29.A volume of 10936 l water is in a container of sphere. How many semi sphere of volume 4l each will be required to transfer all the water into the small semi spheres?

a) 2812 b) 8231 c) 2734 d) 4222

30.On planet korba, a solar blast has melted the ice caps on its equator. 9 years after the ice melts, tiny planetoids called echina start growing on the rocks. Echina grows in the form of circle, and the relationship between the diameter of this circle and the age of echina is given by the formula d = 4*âˆš (t-9) for t â‰¥ 9 where d represents the diameter in mm and t the number of years since the solar blast.Jagan recorded the radius of some echina at a particular spot as 7mm. How many years back did the solar blast occur?

a) 17 b) 21.25 c) 12.25 d) 14.05

Round 2: Technical

Total 31 Student= 11 Who have pass the aptitude and 20 direct Entry

They have loosed my Application Form and Resume.

After 1:00 hour I was standing outside the interview cabin and long discussion they have decided that I have to give another copy of application Form and Resume of my which already I have and I have given to them.

And my interview is started.

I was Last Student for Interview…

Sir: Tell me about yourself.

Me: Myself Chintan Makwana from India. I am a D2D computer engineering student.

Sir: (Sir smiled against me and said) you are first student who said “i am an Indian” and Note down the word D2D on paper and ask me What means D2D?

Me. D2D means Diploma to Degree. I am a Diploma to Degree student.

(I have said I am form India because in TCS I have to relocate at any place in India)

Sir: ok continue your intro.

Me: I am in IT field from Last 6 years. I have extreme knowledge of all the programming languages. I know how to write efficient programs means which requires less CPU cycle.

I knows the programming language like c,c++,java,j2ee,c#,asp,asp.net,vb.. I am right now trainee at Suvira Technplogy, Ahmedabad.

Sir. What? you are trainee or traineer?

Me: Sir i m trainee not a traineer over there.

Sir: ok means you are learning over there...

Me: ya Sir.

Sir: Do u know Oracle?

Me: ya sir.

Sir: Write a select query.

Me: select * from employee;

Sir: modify above select query so that it is select only one row and display;

Me: Can we use ‘where’ in it?

Sir: Ya, you can use.

Me: select * from employee where eid=’&eid’;

Sir: what is eid?

Me: Sir it is a column of employee table.

Sir: What means &eid?

Me: It will display only that row’s data which row we will specify at the run time.

Sir: &eid display only single rows data or all rows data?

Me: Sir only single row data.

Sir: Are you sure?

Me: Ya sir.

Sir: Okey.

Sir: Java is platform Independent?

Me: Yes sir

Sir: How Java is platform Independent?

Me: Because java is compile on any platform and when it compile it converts source code into the byte code and that byte code is run on any platform which have its own JVM..

Sir: What is JVM?

Me: JVM means a Java Virtual Machine and it is Debugger and it use to run the byte code and give the output.

Sir: Is JVM is different for every Platform?

ME. Yes sir JVM is a Different for every platform.

Sir: Why it is Different for every platform?

ME: Because every CPU has a different manufacturing and it has different data bus so JVM is need to convert the BYTE code into native code for CPU which is execute easily by CPU. So for every platform there is need for different JVM which is compatible to that platform.

Sir: ‘C’ is platform independent or portable?

Me: Portable

Sir: How it is portable?

Me: We can easily move ‘c’ code from one place to another place and execute on different platform. (It is not platform independent because it is not run every platform like as java)

Sir: (Sir written word SDLC on the page and said me) what is SDLC?

Me: SDLC means System Development Life Cycle...

Sir: What are different phases of it?

Me: Data gathering, Analysis, Designing, coding, implementation, maintenance. (I have explained all these phases in deep)

Sir: What after Maintenance?

Me: If During Maintenance if we found any fault to above phase and also if new requirements are added at any phase than changes are done from at that phase.

Sir: What is OS?

Me: OS is an interface between hardware and user application program.

Sir: Do you ever develop any ‘OS’?

Me: No sir.

Sir: Which software is use for develop the OS?

Me: System Development Software

Sir: What is pointer?

Me: Pointer is derived data type in c.

Sir: Why we use pointer?

Me: It is use for store the address of another variable.

Sir: Written a Series on page 1,1,2,3,5 what is next term?

ME: 8

Sir. Added 8 to series on page 1,1,2,3,5,8, now what is next term?

ME: 13

Sir: Added to 8 to series on page 1,1,2,3,5,8,13…. and ask me do you know what is it? Which series it is?

ME: Fibonacci Series.

Sir: Do you know how to write program of it.

Me: (I was thinking that in which language I have to write but suddenly without asking sir I have started to write in c.)

void main()

{

int a=0;b=1;c,n;

printf("Enter the Number:");

scanf("%d",&n);

for(i=0;i

{

c=a+b;

a=b;

b=c;

printf("%d",a);

}

getch();

}

Sir: What is use of getch()?

Me: sir getch() use to get the character form the user when we write the getch() function it shows the screen for user input and allow to enter the character and at that time user can see the out for the above code which have execute. It is just illusion to user that getch() is use for stop the screen for user to see output but reality is not that it is use for to enter the character.

Sir: (Again Oracle) written table on page…

Name

--------

Chintan

Chintan

Chintan

Chintan

Now Write a delete query that delete records who have a name Chintan but don’t delete first record…

Me:

(I was known that query is “Delete from employee where eid<>1 and name=”Chintan”; “ but sir written only single column of Name so that I am not sure at that time)

( I have tried till 2 min but after that I have replied to sir ) No sir…. I don’t know query for it…

Sir: Which is your favorite subject in thru out your computer engineering?

Me: all the programming language.

Sir: ALL?

Me: ya sir all c, c++, java, c#, asp, asp.net, j2ee.

Sir: Ok. Can i ask question from java?

Me: yes sir

Sir: What is awt?

Me: AWT means Abstract Window Toolkit which provides the components.

Sir: What is Swing?

me: It is same as AWT it also provides the various components.

Sir: What is Difference between them?

Me: (i was get confinuse.. but after 1 min i sayed) Swing is lightweight and AWT is not lightweight means AWT uses the component of OS in which it is run so when we use same program in another platform than designing of the AWT get change but Swing programs uses their own components and it uses the inbuilt java components so that on any platform designing of swing component does not change..

Sir: (Written below two strings on the page) How can we compare following two strings in java?

String x="Chintan";

String y="Chintan";

Me:

String x="Chintan";

String y="Chintan";

if(x==y)

{

System.out.println("TRUE");

}

else

{

System.out.println("FALSE");

}

Sir: Really this is true coding?

me: ya sir.

Sir: Have you tried any time this code?

Me: ya sir......................(I was thinking in my mind: BECAUSE I Have already get practiced of this code i was know that in java it is possible because of automatic memory management and it is facility to compare to strings directly because string is class in java and there for x and y are object of string class.. but in ‘c’ it is not possible in c so we have to compare character by character using taking array of character..)

Sir: What is address of x in String x="Chintan"?

me: The base address of first char "C"

Sir: What is address of y in String y="C"

me: The base Address of first char "C"

Sir: So it means that address of both x and y is same? Because you have said that both have base address of "C".

Me: no sir. They don’t have same base address.

Sir: Then how can you say that both the string x and y have equal if there address are not equal?

Me: (I was thinking in my mind that in c many time we compare the value of a and b. If they have same value than they returns the true but originally there address is different. So after thinking 30 seconds in my mind I have replied)

We are comparing the value of two strings not the Address of the two strings.

Sir: Do u know the programs of if mouse is move in on the page at that time some event will happen.... in Swing?

me: me sorry sir.. I m not able to understand you question. Please repeat question.

Sir: Draws the rectangle on the page(means form) and said now if i move mouse on this page than write the program for mouse event.

me: ( I was not able to understand the question) no ...

Sir: again said that if at any point the mouse and if I move than say what things happen means do something at any time. If you want the then you can write this code using AWT, ASP.net also?

Me: I have replied that using mouse over event it is possible.

Sir: Mouse over event in java?

Me: Sir i don’t know it. (My answer was wrong right answer is using mouse move event of Mouse Listener it is possible)

Sir: See my C.V........ tell me about your projects.............

Me: sir i have done project name RealEstate.com, NirmalBookbank.com and Currently i m working on the projects Queryin.net and Youthshine.org...

Sir: Please speak loudly.

Me: Queryin.net and Youthshine.org.. I have prepared my all projects in SUVIRA Technology, Vasana Ahmedabad on the asp.net with c#.

Sir: (Smiled against another sir and Said to him which was standing on the leftside of me which was come to see my interview and watching my interview) Do you want to ask any thing to him?

Another sir: What are your current projects?

Me:Queryin.net and Youthshine.org.

Another sir: Who have given you this project?

Me: Vinay Mistry, SUVIRA TECHNOLOGY, VASANA, AHMEDABAD

Another sir: Is this live project?

Me: Ya sir.

Another Sir: Ok... Which tools you are use for develop this project?

Me: Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 and SQL server 2008.

Another sir: You are alone or any another partner?

Me: Ya sir i have one partner?

Another sir: Is he apply for TCS?

Me: no sir.

Another sir: Tell me about your current project...

Me: Till 5 minutes i have explained my project Queryin.net.

Another sir: Who checks the answer of Question?

Me: Employee of the company sir.

Another Sir: In which phase you are right now?

ME: I have completed the coding of the Admin Side....

Another Sir: What?? Really??

ME: ya sir..

Another Sir: Do have completed the Designing part of your project?

Me: ( I Was thinking that he has ask me designing means look) no sir. Sir we are doing the designing at last because in projects we like another--another designing so that we are changing the designing so we are doing designing at last when complete the projects...

Another Sir: Do you know what is meaning of Designing in SDLC?

Me: (I had realized that i have done mistakes in speaking) Ya sir i know what is meaning of Designing in SDLC.

Another Sir: Which are different types of Diagrams is designing?

Me: class diagram, DFD, E-R Diagram, Use case diagrams.

Another sir: Do u know how to draw it?

Me: ya sir.

Another sir: Without designing how can you start the projects?

Me: I know it is not a right way to do the coding for projects without drawing the diagrams… But sir we have first analyze the project and fined the what are requirements for the project and made the Data Dictionary for our projects and from making that after we develop the projects. We have defined all the basic functionality of our projects and started coding. Our projects is continue in 2 semester so we wants to add more functionality in it and right now we don’t want to add all the functionality of the projects and we want to add more and more functionality in our projects if we get time. And we are not professionals who know all the functionality before the projects can starts. So we have not made the diagrams for it. (We have define all the functionality of over projects in the book and after making the data dictionary we normalize the table and try to reduce the table size so that more and more duplicate data are reduce)

Another sir: But we are professional.

Me: I know sir you are professional. I know there is first need to draw the diagrams and then develop the projects. But when I become the professional I will follow that SDLC life cycle.

Another sir: I don’t like your method of doing the projects.

Me: Ya sir I am doing the projects by wrong way but we need to change the diagrams many times because we want to carry forward this projects in 2 semesters and Right now we are not professional so we don’t know when our project will complete exactly so we have not drawn the diagrams. (We have written the functionality which are require in the book) Right now we have started projects by covering all the basic functionality and wants add more and more functionality if we get the time.

Both sir: Ok Nice to meet you….

Me: Thank you sir…
