INFOSYS PAPER ON 23rd JANUARY 2008

hi friends , this is vaibhav from R.K.D.F.IST, Bhopal.. Infy came to our college for campus recruitment on 23rd Jan. Apart from our college 6 other colleges sat for the drive & 26 out 224 of dem(including me !!) were selected frm my college...I exactly don`t remember the number frm other colleges..

The ppt started at 9am & Mr. Deepak frm infy told us each & every thing. The Mysore campus where we will be having our training was simply awesum.. Be attentive in the ppt..
Then the written test started, prior to starting we were made to fill form of infosys. The test as usual consisted of 2 sections:
1. Logical Reasoning
2. English

logical reasoning consisted of 30ques. in 40mins. the questions were::
1-5, a puzzle based prob. (rs agarwal type, but more ticky rather than difficult)
6-10, figure probs (too easy, practice some frm rs)
11-16, data sufficiency prob. (rs agarwal sufficient, very easy)
17-20, data interpretation based on bar graph (simple but involves lengthy n precise calculation, better to attempt at last)
21-24, another puzzle (rs type, but try to be attentive for d clues given. It can b a bit tricky)
25-30, syllogism ques (toooo easy, follow d venn diagram method)

Time management is very important, many of friends were not able to solve ol d ques. then d ques paper was taken, n english ques paper was given.. Refer to some CAT material coz its of good level this is real time game coz u need to do 40 ques in 30 mins the question pattern was ::
1-5 , reading comprehension (easy but solve at last only, if u solve it first, u`ll end-up guessin for many ques)
6-10, reading comprehension (it was too easy, try to read it fast while solving)
11-20, fill in the blanks (easy ones)
21-30, choose correct sentence from 4 given sentences (easy 1`s but b carefull, there is only a slight difference n u hav to select wich is more grammatically correct )
31-40, u have to choose wich title suits best for d above given paragraph.

Be careful for english part coz most of the candidates get rejected here only.. Time management is must!!! Solve RC`s at last.. I did 30 questions in 13mins & hence got 17mins to solve the reading comprehensions wich i did at last!! so plan the paper accordingly!!

after d test results were announced in 2 hours, i was very glad to noe tat i was selected.. As dere was sectional cut-off wich is around 60% for reasoning & 50 % for english, very less students get selected..

After written results, with no time delay HR interviews started. A panel of 12 HR`s came who were taking interview in 12 different rooms. Mostly of dem were aged between 65-70. But dey were too gentle to d candidates..

Mine was a lady of around 35. She was nice n asked me some common ques. She gave me 2 puzzles, one wich i got d answer, d other i applied d login but was nt able to reach upto d answer.. they chk for ur approach only.. So jst try to apply some approch to it.. My interview lasted for around 15mins. All dey chk for is ur communication skills n confidence.. They want persons with excellent communication skills.. No tech. ques will be asked.. N one more thing once u hav cleared d written, almost 75% of ur selection is confirmed. Rejections at HR is verrry less.. So focus well on written part coz its the biggest barrier & once u cross it, u r almost through!!!

After the interview, in about 45mins, final results were announced, i was veryyyyyyy glad dat i was selected.. Celebrations were ol around as this was d 1st company in wich we sat & we cracked it too!!!

So friends cracking infy is not a difficult task.. All u need is some smart-work, good communication skills & confidence as well as conviction in urself. I would like to thank fresherworld.com for the support they provided by providing blogs & papers like this, which actually helps the candidates to crack the companies.. I would also like to thank all my college,my faculty & my friends who provided me support!!!
With this, i bid best wishes to all!!!

SEE U ALL AT INFY!!!!!
