Infosys Placement Paper Pattern Held on 4th Feb 2010 at JB Institute of engineering&Tech,Hyderabad
2)HR round only
Guys! There is no technical round ..so don’t prepare for it.. Just prepare for HR .. Infact, infosys never has had a technical round this is because.. They will train u for 6-8months when u get to join in their company .. they don’t bother abt ur technical skills.
Eligibility: 68%(strict) [no 67.99% also] with 0 active backlogs. consistent 60% 10th,inter marks.
Our college had about 230 eligible candidates.
At first ,at about 9 30am we had a presentation seminar on the vision, goals, achievements of Infosys which was given by a HR from Infosys. Try to be attentive guys and note down interesting points in this seminar because it will help u at the end of the day in the interview round. This went about for 45mins and soon they gave application forms and question papers to all the students.
First they will give u aptitude (logical reasoning) paper..U will have like 2mins to go through.. This is very important…as soon as u get the paper.. Just try to review the questions at a glance in those 2mins..quickly.. This is the time where u will get to know about questions pattern, order.. U need to identify the easy ones and hard ones…Don’t worry I will tell u which ones are easy and hard.
So the aptitude paper will have:30questions to be solved in 40mins.
The following are the list of questions:
1-5) a para is given and five questions are asked on it.. Its related to 4guys where money is distributed equally between A, B and C, D and some conditions bla bla.. and the questions are like..
who has highest money and least? How much does B have ..how much does C has?
These are not time taking questions.. these ques are of normal level only..
6-10) figure continuation/sequence ..they will give u a set of 4figures and followed by 5options where in you have to select next sequence of figure from the five options..
This is also easy if u have practiced it before.. guys practice these questions from R S Agarwal nonverbal and u will become familiar with these kind of questions if u do so.
11-15)Data sufficiency questions …guys here it will test ur quantitative aptitude..
1question based on ages,1ques based on numbers,1ques based on compound interest,1ques based on selling price, profit concept,1ques from Ratios.. Practice R S Agarwal verbal book for DataSufficiency
16-20)Data Interpretation questions ..a graph is given and 5ques were asked on it.. this takes some time to calculate …so solve this section at the last…but if u find it as easy …then u can solve in the middle itself.
21-25)A puzzle para…is given …very time taking…complex ques..and 5question asked on it..Go thru all simple and complex Puzzle questions from R S Agarwal verbal…PuzzleTest section in it…6kinds of puzzles…will be there..practice it..guys!
26-30)Data Syllogism questions…all cats are dogs..some cats are dogs…bla bla….Practice only TIME material(there is a trick to solve this kind of ques..very simple method ,follow it)..all these questions came from time material only…dont follow R S Agarwal..Techniques given for DataSyllogism ..it is time taking…and it ruined me…this is most easy questions and u shd solve this first
Then immediately they gave English Question paper.It had 40questions needed to be solved in 30mins!
1-10) two RC paras with five questions each ..Timetaking..Do this at the last..Follow tips from BarronsGRE..very useful..
11-20)sentence correction..very easy if u have basic grammar skills its enough
21-30)Sentence completion with meaningful,appropiate,suitable..practical solutions to be chosen from the 4options..this is some what easy but a man with good english vocab and grammar skills can do this easily….
31-40)Theme Detection…10paras..each followed by a question regarding the theme of that para..u hav to select from the 4options given
For english..i din prepare from any book..as i had a good knowledge of basic grammar,a decent vocab ..so iwas able to do 30questions in 25mins easily…and last 5mins…i did 1RC para
Beware! Time management is very crucial for infosys test..and very much needed in aptitude paper..so practice ques.,learn tricks..to solve them easily..
I din do well in my aptitude paper.i struggled with the first five ques itself…10mins, went by, there itself..and then i did figure sequence.i cld easily solve 4ques outta 5..one question i cld nt answer…i guessed it..
Then i solved Sufficiency ques with some logical sense..i dunno..whether i got them right or not.
Then i went to Puzzle test questions(21-25ques)that para was very long for me..but since i practiced well from r s agarwal..i was confident that i can do that…but it was a long para.with so many relationships(a bit difficult ques,but i din know that it was a hard one)..and i cldnt solve ..i wasted 20mins here i think ..i cld solve only 3 outta 5.and 2 i guessed it..
Then i went to data syllogism..i learnt from r s agarwal..but it proved me too costly..it took 3mins for each ques..and i had no time..at all..everything went wrong for me..and i really panicked ..and i cldnt even gaze at DI questions .i guessed all those DI questions…i messed up my whole paper..was a very bad day for me
So guys my advice is first do Data Syllogism questions(practice only from TIME material.be thorough with the questions in that material) ,Then go for figure sequence ques,then depending upon the complexity of questions follow up….
For english..it was very easy for me..but for those who are poor in their english skills..u need to work hard guys..!
After 2hours,they announced the list of all short listed candidates for interview round process..About 35students got short listed..to go to the next round..and my name was not there in the list..i was hoping for some miracle to happen ..and i also had little hope becos i did well in my English paper..but god showed no mercy on me ..God proved that Talent wins ..but not all guys were talented ..they did team work in the test(copying)..So i wld also say that god showed mercy on few..but not on me..i was disappointed,disgusted,frustrated..it was my dream to work for infy..it was a black day in my life .i prepared well for the test..following all the success stories i carried my preparation well..but i cldnt manage the time smartly ..i was slow while doing the problems..so guys practice hard ..dont take the test easily!
We were not revealed about our marks..nor about the cut-offs(as they say)..they only announced the list of shortlisted names..
But i will tell u what i ve learnt from my frens experiences and also taking account of my knowledge for the interview:
First be thoroughly prepared with ur resume ..each and every word,line etc.Try to keep ur resume simple and concise. Dont give a harsh look or bad font or large font or colors,desgins to ur resume..keep it simple..thats it.
The common questions they have asked…(from my frens experiences)in the HR
1)tell me abt urself?
2)tell me abt ur project?..prepare well abt ut project and paper seminars if u ve mentioned..they don’t go much deep into ur project but they only see ur presentation skills there..Tell abt ur project in a simple manner..without going too much into the technical details. Present urself well here…be prepared for this question
3)ur hobbies and activities
4)strengths and weaknesses
5)Ur leadership skills with example,team player,leader skills with example,organization skills with example,..they will ask
All the Best………….
