TCS NQT 2020 Exam Date

The TNQT Test scheduled to be held on 20th July has now been shifted to 3rd and 4th August.

The last date to apply has also been extended to 24th July.

Points to Note :

  • The Test Center which was given earlier by the student will remain the same.
  • If students wish to change the Test Center they can do so using Update Drive Details.

System queries :

  • For already applied students the test center will remain blank, this is nothing to worry about.
  • The system will only show 3rd August as the date though the test is on both 3rd and 4th. We are working to fix this issue.
