INFOSYS PAPER ON 17th MARCH AT NEW DELHI
I am Pulkit
Gupta, 6th semester studentof Information Technology branch of GPMCE
affiliated to IP university,Delhi. I gave infosys on campus test for
freshers on 17th, 18th March.2007, and cleared it. total 1500 students came
from different colleges of IP univ and finaaly 170 were selected out of 220
shortlisted for HR interview(very low percentage for infy).the paper was
tough especially english section.
Procedure had three phases:
In the morning (around 10 am), after the arrival, u will be exposed to a ppt presentation on Infosys. I am sure that this will motivate enough to get placed at Infosys.
Next, we were allowed to disperse and we were allotted rooms for our test. After we are settled in our rooms, we were given an application form to fill it up(if u have anyone in infosys,write it as reference it may help you in HR). The instructions to fill the application form will be announced prior. Be careful in filling those forms and provide accurate statistical data of your marks as far as possible.
Next comes the
Aptitude test. It was started at 11.50 am. The time limit for aps is 40 mins
within which u have to complete 30 q's. The aptitude session consists of the
following sub groups.
1 puzzle was:
Exam is to be held between Monday to sunday. There is 1 holiday in between
papers. 9 papers were: english, hindi, math, history, civics geography,
biology, physics, chemistry.
were there like:
2) when is the
rest i dont
remember but the sequence was like this
1 question i remember of data sufficiency was: i suggest do data suffiency from rs aggarwal quantitative book because dey wont ask u theoritical questions so go thru ques on data sufficiency at the back of each chapter.
Find the area
of quadilateral ABCD.a right angled quadilateral figur was given.
sorry friends i dont remember all questions as they were too long. After 40 mins they collected the question paper for aps and gave us verbal(english) q paper. Here is where u have to put more effort. The verbal part is very tough as compared to aptitude. If u are strong at basic grammar (particularly tenses and phrases) u will have this cleared.
There will be
40 q's which u have to finish in 30 mins. Time management is very much
essential here. The pattern of this question is:
For english, you can refer any CAT material like CL,ims etc. and prepare well for it, dont take it lightly as it is the main eliminating section in written test, aptitude is easy. in our case, 220 were shortlisted out of 1500 for interview n english section played a major part int it).
Remember friends the preset cut-off of infy's test is 15 out of 30 for aptitude and 20 out of 40 for english and these dont vary with performance. If all students get more than 50% in test, all are selected and if no one gets it, then no one is selected.
The tests are over by 1 pm. the results were be announced by 9.30 pm. There were 1500 students appeared for test and 220 were shortlisted for HR round which held next day.
now i will tell my experience there
were 15 panels from different colleges of Delhi university(infy members dont
take freshers interview).
then he asked me about my
reference( my brother in infosys). Then he asked me 2 puzzles. he asked me
to find the volume of the sprite bottle kept there(300ml). it didnt strike
me and then he gave me various hints and then i said 300ml but i kept on
trying, smiled in between.
F O R T Y
Then he asked me tat do I have any question? Aways ask some question never say i dont have any and the question concerning the company. i asked why infosys has most of its centres in south india only? the question should be such that reflects your concern towards the company.
He answered me tat it is too early to concerned abt those issues and he commented that it was a very good qn and he liked my attitude. Then he asked me to check my mails regularly( which is an indirect sign tat I got placed). Then he wished me for my bright future.. I came out with confidence.
The results were announced by 7pm. I was very happy to hear that I got selected. 170/220 were selected. They have a pattern, they were selecting 75% of students from each college on an average.
So friends, The main thing is to belief in yourself and confidence. Use your innovative and creative ideas and make sure tat it is exhibited. Be yourself and be confident and smiling(thad important) and if your interview is not good then dont say it there, it goes in ur negative, may be he liked u, so don't break down till the end, show confidence. Hope this will help you. See u at INFOSYS..
