    2. HR


    NOTE :(we were given an application form of infy we were asked to write it before the exam had started)



    All questions were of REASONING type -----30 questions (R.S Aggarwal reasoning book is more than enough)

    here time management is very important

    One question was time consuming for me and

    that was from the puzzle test so be prepared wid all 7 models of PUZZLE TEST


    we had DATA INTETERPRETATION and as i couldnt solve the 1st question properly i had to solve this

    so dont waste time for the questions u cannot solve instead do the one which is easier n refer (r s aggarwal quantitative aptitude for this)

    mostly bar charts, tables and pi charts are given (we were given a table)


    5 questions were from FIGURES

    we were given 3 figures followed by a '?' 

    in this the 1st two figures are have some relationship b/w them n based on that we hav to pick an answer figure which matches the 3rd figure

    this was an easy one


    5 questions were from SYLLOGISM

    this was a bit different from wht i thought

    they give 5 statements naming them a,b,c,d,e

    then the answers choices were like 3 were paired eg:1)abe 2)dbe 3)aeb 4)dae

    n we hav to find the pair which corretly matchs it if u do r.s aggarwal n r perfect wid all rules of syllogism i dont thing this would b tough


    5 questions were of DATA SUFFICIENCY type

    i felt this was easy

    the questions i remember were from mensuration,length of train,ages of people


    thts it in this part,  we were not told the cutoff but i think its better to try for atleast 20 out of 30



    40 questions were there

    i scored 24 marks

    there were 2 RCs one was of 2 pages i attempted in the last 5 min but i did it well i believe

    then we had


    correction of sentences

    fill in the blank with correct word

    around 5to 6 passages for which we had go choose the correct summary

    u hav to read these very fast

    time management is very very imp. here

    do not waste even one min looking here and there coz tht one min costs a loooooooot


    finally i was called my name for HR n i was on  the top of the world

    i actually got thru wipro also but the joy of getting into a dream company is just great

    one should definately experience it



    One important thing is tht dont think tht its just HR

    u should always remember tht there is one more hurdle to pass

    in my 1st interview i hav learnt a lot "wht to do n wht not to do in the HR round" so if u hav not yet been placed then first analyze why tht has happened n try to improve on that coz there r huge oppertunities in this world

    some way or the other u can get thru once u improve on ur flaws

    so be confident and dont be jelous abt the ones who hav already got its a very bad thing


    My HR round was coool

    HR: come in swathi

    me: yes sir

    HR: cmon take ur seat

    me: thank u sir (he had asked my resume and asked  me to sign on it n also at few places on the application form)

    HR: so ur father works as so n so

    me: yes sir

    HR: whre hav u travelled

    me: said a lot of places in India n i mentioned tht i like cold places

    HR: k then which was the coldest place u saw

    me: shillong in winter, then comes munnar

    HR: so would there b snow fall fall

    me: (me sadly)no sir yet to see such a place once

    HR: do u like travelling coz of ur fathers transferable job

    me: no sir even otherwise i never miss a chance to travel

    HR: he gave me 3 topics and asked me to speak on 1

    me: spoke abt supermarket (he was impressed)

    HR: is there an incident in ur life whr u hav improved or had to changed ur work culture

    me: said

    HR: then she asked me abt my paper presentation(it was on face detection which comes under AI)

    HR: how would u explain to a 7th class kid abt AI

    me: i definately had an answer for tht so i answered n i think he was happy wid my answer

    HR: k swathi there r 6 matchsticks here arrange them so that "each one touches one another"

    me : i could make 5 to touch each other but not the 6th one

    HR: then he asked me to make 4 equlateral triangles with those sticks

    me: (the answer is to make a  pyramid out of it)i almost did it then he sait to leave it aside

    HR: k so wht sports do u play

    HR: do u hav ny questions

    me: asked 2 questions n he had answered them very patiently

    HR: k then u can leave now and cal the next person and ALL the Best

    me: thank u sir
