I was so excited, I could’nt wait till the 18th of Dec.
I had never stayed out of my house for more than a week, this was the first time I had to travel alone. Stay was supposed to be for about 2 months, I felt more excited than worried.
I had a TCS pre-medical test, which included Blood test ( They collected 2 full testtubes of blood) ,ECG, Ultrasound, Physical fitness test, Eye test…AND MORE
I collected my TCS offer letters, soon I got a another mail from TCS, Trivandrum which read->
