So always remember to attempt each n every question, especially the analytical one. And presenting Ur answers neatly is as very important, as they check each n every step u have written. Most of my friends didn?t get through infy b?coz they did not present the procedure well or didn?t number the corresponding number of the question in the answer sheet. As I was aware of mistakes made by them, I was very cautious while writing the exam.

10. I am unable to recall the question correctly and I thought that question is a new one, but my friends said that they saw this question in previous papers also,..So please go through the previous question papers. Any how ,the question goes like this  ?there are 2 trains ,the cylinder of one of the 2 trains bursts in the way ,so they get delayed by 2 hours ,if it would have happened 55 miles later after they started ,they would have been delayed by? ,?sorry I am unable to recall friends?

A small word to my friends:

Life is full of misfortunes which never actually occur.

So friends, end all ur inhibitions and make ur confident self come out in the interview, then rest would be history.

All the Best.

Tip: pray to god, or do some mediation before going inside, and do not forget to do few rehearsals of the interview while u r preparing for the written test itself.
