To obtain a TCS placement, you must participate in the TCS interviews. To be eligible for TCS interviews, you must meet certain criteria. Some of the criteria are:

> 60% in the 10th and 12th exams/diplomas on the first attempt.

> 60% in a college degree, even on the first attempt. (No Back Logs).

> Not more than 1 job accumulated at the time of the interview and the pending job must be eliminated within the normal duration.

TCS conducts university campaigns in various universities across the country. If you meet all the eligibility criteria, contact your university's training and placement cell and ask if TCS will come for the placement. If TCS doesn't come to your college, you can apply through the off-campus drive.
