I don't know much about schedule A, besides the basics, but can certainly help with the federal resume. A lot to post here but here's a few starting tips:
1. Keep the format simple - you don't need Canva or some resume regenerator
2. Include all your experience, including volunteer, titles, hours worked, organization, and dates
3. Target specific job duties and qualifications, and tie them to your experiences. Make sure to include action+result+impact
4. No limit to number of pages, but safe to keep it under 5. Nobody wants to read a 10 page resume and won't

You're more than welcome to pm me to exchange emails or schedule a call for more about USAJobs, the hiring system, and federal resumes

Make sure your resume includes the specific requirements listed in the job post. The post will state whether you need things such as hours per week listed (in previous positions) and if you do not have it you will be automatically disqualified. Read the job post VERY carefully and include specific verbiage from the skills knowledge and abilities (KSAs).

For the USAJobs resume, recommend you have sections for each of your roles in all caps then relevant experience. Ex:) PROGRAM MANAGEMENT then several bullet points of accomplishments, FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT then same. Try to make sure your bullet points have key words and are measurable to show you’re a top performer.

Mileage may vary but most agencies and organizations prefer a chronological resume bc they have to determine if your previous experiences exhibit required qualifications for the next lower grade

Also make sure you detail the number of hours worked per week (40 hours per week) for each job role, or it'll be disqualified.

For some jobs, that's true. But not all. However, it's a good practice to include it either way.

I had my interview in TCS on 28th April .On 29th April Iwas asked to upload documents in tcs ibegin portal.On that very day only the documents got verified status. But after that there has been no communication from HR.
I even tried to call up the HR after one month,but they didn't picked up.
What does it imply selected or rejected?

A HR question I really want to understand. ISRS HR quoted a podcast "The not so great resignation" saying 70% regret leaving and many want to go back to old employer. If this really the case the employee likely left due to higher pay at the new company. If they want to boomerang back they will likely come back at even a higher rate than they left the new company for. So getting double raise when they boomeranged. Isn't it unbeneficial, why not just give employee a 7% raise in the first place?
