Q1. Clarity about internships
We'll publish it in the Campus Commune platform and you can apply thereafter, we'll let you know.
Out of 4 modules, first 3 are generic and the last one is a choice b/n Java and Python.
Q3. About assessment on 26th Jan. Is it mandatory?
Assessments are planned on an ongoing basis. The first on-center iPA exam is planned on 26th. If you are completely prepared for the assessment you can go ahead, or you can wait for futher exams in Feb or later. It's not mandatory, but before 30th April you need to score well for incentives.
We'll have a minimum of two proctored assesments planned every month, either iPA or CPA.
Q4. Pattern of Assessment
We'll be updating a detailed document soon. It'll be a combination of MCQs and subjective questions.
Suggestion- Do more hands-on on every topic for more practical expertise.
Q5. How to select CPA?
2-3 weeks prior we'll float the survey for CPA and those who give response will be considered for that assesment.
Q6. Diff between Digital and Ninja?
Digital recruits have cleared more high level assesment and they are well prepared for advanced technology projects. Ninja hires can perform well on joining and participate in various activities to level up.
Q7. Do the 3 attempts need to be in sequence?
No, the first 3 attempts are the assessments you're taking as you're prepared and not the ones that TCS provides.
If you want to opt out of an assessment just drop an email to xplore support and your name will be taken out of that scheduled assessment.
But don't drop out of assessments unnecessarily as you might not get enough chances to give attempts before 30th April.
Q8. Is the course content needed to be completed 100 percent?
It is preferable but if it isn't getting completed 100 percent, you can write to us.
