    Hi friends. This is Bharathi from Hyderabad. There was a on campus interview of Infosys in our college. I would like to share my experience with u. 
    Around 350 students from our college attended this,out of which 51 students were short listed for interview. Finally 38 students were selected n i was one among them.
    I am giving you the information which i think will be really useful for u. 


    It consists of two sections.
    1.Analytical and Logical reasoning(30 Questions--40 min)
    2.Verbal(40 Questions--35min)

    Cutoff will be like 60% for the first section and 50% for the second section. There is a sectional cutoff frns so u need to perform well in both the sections.
    Before the written test starts, we ll be asked to fill an application form of infy n frns fill it carefully. 

    1. Analytical and Logical reasoning
    5 q's on arithemetic reasoning(easy)
    5 q's on series completion(figures)
    5 q's on data sufficiency
    5 q's on data interpretation(tough)
    5 q's on syllogism(practise using figures)
    5 q's on puzzle test(R.S Agarwal is sufficient for this section-- very easy)

    Time management is an imp factor friends so manage the time properly. Don't get tensed.
    practice the above topics from these books
    1.R.s Agarwal

    2. Verbal
    Friends be perfect in basics n prepare any grammar book then u can do it very easily.
    2 big RC's will be given but the q's are very direct, u can easily get the ans. (10 marks)
    sentence correction (10 marks)
    fill with appropriate word (10 marks)
    Theme Detection (10 marks)
    Don't start with RC's frns do them at last. 
    Do not waste even one min looking here and there coz that one min costs a loooooooot.
    Finally we had to wait for two hours and then results were declared n i was short listed.
    Believe me frns i could do only one passage and time was not sufficient for both the sections. whatever u do, do it perfectly.

    At 5'o clock i was asked to go for the interview. Frns now my bad time started. Hr was not cool n he was a bit aged. He interviewed me for 30min.

    ME: THANKU SIR. I was almost in tears coz of interview. 

    At last we waited for an hour n i was too much tensed that i'll be surely rejected..
    But friends finally i was selected due to gods grace and was very much happyyyyyy. 

    believe me frns, once u r selected in aptitude u r half into the company, u need to impress the interviewer that's it then u'll be surely selected.. 
    Please don't bluff, be yourself, and stay cool, even if the interviewer talks to u harshly, ans with smile that's it. this is my sincere suggestion.

    All the best n Bye friends.. see u in infosys.
