What’s my TCS college grade?

With the joining dates of 2010 batch students going on, candidates are more than ever curious to know what grades would be given to their college. Based on last years data where more than 20,000 TCS candidates of 2009 batch shared their information of colleges in Orkut and various other communities, this list is presented below. Apparently the joining dates are given in the order of grades, i.e. A, B, C* and then C. But after a few months different colleges of different grades of both CS and Non-CS streams start getting their joining dates in parallel. Here is the summary of the college grades.  

The 2010 batch joining dates have started earlier than the 2009 batch joining dates no doubt, and hence the mood is really high amongst the candidates. More so after a stunning show of performance by TCS in the quarterly results.

This useful chart below gives a schematic idea of the distribution of the different college grades in the different branches.

Tips to use the chart:
To know the number of colleges of a particular grade for a particular recruiting branch, just observe the height of the bar of that color for that branch. For example, to know the number of A grade Colleges in Chennai, notice the pink bar right above grade “A” in the horizontal axis. 

Quick Tips to find your grade:
1. Press Ctrl+F and type in the abbreviation of your college name.
2. Press Ctrl+F and type in your full college name.
3. If you know your recruiting branch, you can keep scrolling following the color of your branch until you find your college name.
