    Hi friends, I am Yamini Juneja, Sixth Semester, B.Tech (CS) student of IPEC, Ghaziabad..

    It feels great to be a part of INFOSYS.. I hope I?ll b able to help you guys with my experience..


    First and foremost important thing is to be confident.. if u trust yourself, you have won half the battle.. even if you      don?t get through, don?t get disappointed.. The world does not end here, may be you a better opportunity is waiting for you..

    Now back to the point.. the written paper was on 1st March 2007 an HR on the next day..


    INFOSYS pattern:


          1) Reasoning Ability (30 questions ,40 minutes)
               English Aptitude   (40 questions,35 minutes)

          2) HR round


    They eliminated most of us in written so I would suggest you to prepare well for it..

    Only 66 of us got selected for written out of  250..

    The most important thing is TIME MANAGEMENT?.

    I don?t remember the questions well.. but what all I can recollect is here..


    1)   PUZZLE

    A DI ques has to pass through three stages A,B,C.. there are 4 men to check at stage A, 10 men at stage B and 4 men at stage C.. each man works for 10 hrs a day..  A DI ques takes 1 hr at Stage A,2 hrs at Stage B and 1 hr  at Stage C and an apti ques takes 45 mins at Stage A,2hrs at stage B and 1 hr at Stage C.
    There were 5 ques based on the data provided..   like?

    At most how many DI ques could be solved in a day..

    If 3 more men get involved in stage A then at most how many ques can be solved in a day..

          They were pretty easy..


    2)  LOGIC

    5 ques were there to find the odd one among the 5 pictures given for each..

    they were a little tricky..

    You can find these type of  ques in VERBAL AND NON VERBAL REASONING, R.S   Aggarwal


    3)  DATA SUFFICENCY(5 ques)

    one of then which I remember is:

         find the angle ADC in cyclic quadrilateral ABCD

    1.      angle BCD + angle ADC = 77

    2.      angle BAD= 55


    Remember you don?t have to solve the ques but to find out whether

         a) 1 alone is sufficient to answer the question.
         b) 2 alone  is sufficient to answer the question.
         c) either of 1 or 2 is sufficient to answer the question.
         d) both are insufficient to answer the question.
         e) both are required to answer the question.


         Ans to above is e



         A table of  imports from diff countries to India was given and 5 ques were based on    it.. there  were very lengthy calculations and I would suggest to apply hit and trial here otherwise you?ll end up wasting most of your time.
    Practice DI ques from  QUANTITATIVE APTITUTE by R.S aggarwal


    5)  A PUZZLE again


         It was like there were six people A,B,C,D,E sitting in 2 rows..

         B and C can not sit in corner and other relevant data and then 5 ques based on it..

         It was very easy..

    Practice the puzzles from VERBAL AND NON VERBAL REASONING, R.S            Aggarwal



          This is again there in VERBAL AND NON VERBAL REASONING, R.S   Aggarwal

    I would sugguest you to go through examples of

      Blood relations
      Puzzle test
      Logical Venn Diagrams 
      Ranking and time sequence Test
      Data Sufficiency
      Logic (Just  learn those 9 rules)
    Cubes ( go through the ques like a painted cube was cut and then you have to find the no. of  find 1 side painted cubes? and so on..) 
     from VERBAL AND NON VERBAL REASONING, R.S Aggarwal.. n do about 10 examples from each chapter.. n if can arrange for any CAT material then plz do that? it really helps.. the paper is usually lengthy so go for easier first like puzzles, DS and SYLLOGISM.. DI can be tough so do it at end..

    At the end of the day its all luck.. so give your best but be prepared for the worst..

    The English paper

    1)      2 Reading Comprehensions.. DO them at the end.. they are quite lengthy..

    and if you don?t get enough time to read them then try to make out answers by going through glimpse  of the  comprehensions

    2) Argument-Conclusion type.

    3)  Sentence Correction.

                       4)  Choosing grammatically correct sentences.

                      English is easy if you are go at spoken English.. you can not learn English in few
    days but i would suggest you to go through IMS material on              English.. it?s good..


    My HR was really cool..

    In HR they judge your analytical ability.. They check for how you handle stress.. your confidence, communicational skills,

    presence of mind, overall personality..


    me: GOOD AFTERNOON ma?am..

    intr: GOOD AFTERNOON.. Have your seat..  

    me: thank you ma?am?

    (then she asked me to sign a paper)

    intr: tell me abut your background , your achievements, your education?

    me: told (be cool.. don?t get nervous.. they will make it out.. be natural when you answer even if you have prepared the answer  before.. relate your strengths with their requirements.. )

    intr: tell me about your family background

    me: told ( tell how you have learned from your parents.. they don?t want to know whether your dad is a doctor or an IAS.. they want to know more of  you, so don?t boost about your family but tell them what you learned from their experiences)

    intr: what sacrifice your parents have made for you..

    me: told..

    intr: then she asked me to make 8 equilateral triangles from 12 matchsticks..

    me: (they don?t want your answer, they want to judge you presence of mind and how you handle stress.. jst keep trying until she/he asks you to stop)

    intr: tell me about your close friends..

    me: told..

    intr: how do you update yourself..

    me: I?m not that good newspaper reader but I do keep record of what is happening around me through internet and television.. ( Don?t lie, if you don?t read newspaper it?s perfectly fine.. )

    intr: If fire catches your house and you have a 20*20 box, what will you take in it..

    me: I?ll take my certificates and some money in it..

    intr: where do you keep all your certificates..

    me: told..

    intr: if your two close friends utter all bad about you to your project head and you came to know about it from a very reliable source then how will you react..

    me: told ( see, they do check how you handle situations? don?t mix up professional life with your personal life.)

    intr: okay.. BEST OF LUCK..

    me: thank you ma?am.. It was nice meeting you?


    Important is to be confident, calm, and to impress the panel...


    You should know about the capital of all states in India and major countries.. go through headlines (Budget, elections(newly elected chief ministers..), IT sector.. TATA-chorus) they can ask you to mention 25 news.. You should be well aware of names of all ministers..

    All questions are from your CV so be through with it.. always back up your strengths and weaknesses with examples..


    Finally 52 got selected after HR and I was one of them? Thanks to all who contributed to


    BEST OF LUCK?. Just work hard and you?ll make it? Hope to see you all in  INFOSYS?
