Paper- Feb 2006
I passed with an above average aggregate. I had my first interview in a
relative s company in Chennai-post of software trainee-programmer in C and
C++. But it was under recommendation that I was called to attend the test.
So did not accept their offer. I applied for Infy, CTS and TCS and many more
MNCs. I attended caritor off campus and lost in final round.
On 27th Dec., I got the long awaited Infy call letter for test on jan 8th

of puzzles from brain vista and old papers. I was through with 2004,2004 and

did a 8 correct.
