INFOSYS Placement Papers
ON 21st MARCH AT BANGALORE
Here are some tips to crack Infy. As you know the exam pattern of infy has
been changed recently. Before we used to have a lot of puzzles and then
basic English. Now the pattern is somewhat easy. 100 % Presence of mind and
75% intelligence can get you through. Mine was an online exam. Guys the
questions cannot be solved fully in their provided time. Some questions need
lot of thinking and consumes time. Just skip those questions taking lot of
time and finish others.. 'coz you can solve others with ease and after
gaining confidence by solving those questions.. surprisingly the question
you left will seem easier. So just carry on with the easier ones as fast as
possible. The Non- English session has questions from the following....
2. Data Interpretation.
3. SYLLOGISM - - Very important. and somewhat difficult. Refer the 9
rules from R.S Aggarwal. Memorise those. However the question is in
different manner from that of RS Aggarwal. Here i give an example however
this is not the same question but the same pattern...
statement A: Some men are educated.
B: Educated persons prefer small families
C: All small families are educated.
D: some men prefer small families.
E: bla bla bla bla.... ( this is not the exact sentence
man... just some other sentences.. i cant remember..)
Choose from the following which is logically correct..
Here the answer is ABD. Like wise some 5 questions.. If you prepare it
throughly you can easily get 5/5 in less time. saving time for others.
test-- This does not mean the puzzles we see in Shahuntala devi but they'll
give a passage and we must get the details from that and solve the questions
following it. These examples can be found in RS Aggarwal verbal and Non
verbal reasoning. Concentration is the key !.
5. Spot the odd
This session was somewhat tough guys... Also you should have good pair of
eyes to view the images correctly.. If possible get a lens !!! Observe
deeply and mark the answers. Refer RS aggarwal for this too...
For all the
above portions refer RS Aggarwal verbal and non verbal... Its enough. But
work out all the examples... and test yourselves with some hard exercise. RS
Agg is more than enough. Also refer.. from the asme book ... series
completion, direction sense test, Blood relation, cubes and dice...
English session. It was a bit tough. Attempt the passage comprehension at
the last else you'll be reading it till next batch comes !! Long passages..
Good grammar can get you through in this session.
finish of online exam we were asked to wait for 1/2 an hour.... FInally the
shortlisted candidates list were exhibited. By God's grace i was fortunate
to be in it. Out of 30.. 5 were shortlisted....
Soon we were
called for HR round... I went last... i was interviewed by 2 fems... Just
asked personal questions... Then asked puzzles...
1. there was a water bottle in front of us.. they asked me give 10 examples
how you can use it other than filling liquid...
me: blah.. blah... blah...
2. If i drink some water from this bottle how can you measure the reamaining
amount without any conventional measurement !!!
said -- can be done by counting the number if stripes in that bottle... But
they were not impressed asked me someother way... I surrendered!!
3. Gave me a puzzle....
Bring 100 out of seven 3's.... another boy in my batch was asked bring 23
from five 5s. However we both ddnt solve it... Its not a problem they just
see how you proceed .... Later i found the answer to be as 333/3 - 33/3 =
100 and 5*5 - 5/5+5/5 = 23
and loud in speaking to them. They just check your comm. tats all...
Finally i'm asked to wait for 3 weeks to get the result... However i have no
confidence personally gettin in... Pray for me !!!
