About tcs ilp

1st day of tcs ilp
On your first day, make sure you are properly dressed and be on time. 1st day at ilp is very hectic but you’ll enjoy being there.
Documents needed on 1st day:
• Joining letter
• All notarized and self attested documents
• Passport-sized Photographs
First you have to attend a Welcome session and then there are 2 Initial Readiness Assessments (IRA-1 and IRA-2) which will decide whether you will continue your training or not.
IRA-1: It is exam based on Aspire modules and very easy to clear if you have read aspire once. IRA-1 result is very important; if you failed to clear it then your ILP will be rescheduled.
IRA-2: IRA-2 is adaptive exam and is not that important. But if you score high in this assessment, you will get a chance to opt for Differential Training/ Fast track ILP. In differential learning, you will be shifted to previous batch and your training period will be 10-15 days less than your current batch.
Ilp training curriculum
Tcs ilp is a based on virtual learning system i.e. no faculty is going to come and teach you. Whole ilp material is provided on an online portal (ion). The whole training is divided into 2 parts: Technical and business skills. The business skills sessions are same for all the batches.
In technical training, there are total 5 streams-BIMP, Assurance, UNIX, Java and .Net. The technical sessions are taken as per the streams.
Based on your stream, you have to first learn the concepts. You will be given certain time period to learn the concepts and after that you have to give one MCQ based test and one coding based test. All these are called diagnostics. You will often hear this word in ilp.
There are three phases: Passed, Remedial and Lap. If you fail in any of these, you have to appear for re-test. And if you fail to clear the re-test, you will be placed in remedial phase. And if you fail to clear the remedial through-out the ilp also, you will be in Lap. In lap phase, your training period will extend for 15 days.
After all diagnostics are over, based on what you learnt you have to develop one complete project. At the end there are two more exams. One is PRA and second is Exit Test. The score of PRA will decide your ILP ratings. And to get your release letter, you must clear the Exit Test.
Business Skills (Soft skills training)
And now comes the Business skills sessions. These sessions are like refreshments. These sessions help us to know our strengths and weaknesses, how good you are at team work and business ethics and it also enhances your personality.
In Business skills, 2 types of diagnostics are there – Speaking skills and Writing Skills. Total there are 4 assessments of business skills throughout ilp. In starting days, there are 2 assessment- 1 speaking skills and 1 writing skills and it is called pre-diagnostics. After your project development, you have to give presentation for your project. And this presentation is your final speaking skills diagnostics.
Most important, behave well and don’t take final business skills diagnostics lightly because behavioral lap and business lap are the worst.
All-in-all, tcs ilp experience is very wonderful and unforgettable. All those super-awesome weekends, pizza parties, diagnostics days, final presentation and much more are missed by all of us.
Hope this would help you out. In case of any doubts, feel free to ask in comments. Enjoy to the fullest. All the best!
