Hi friends I m Anuj Gupta studying B.Tech(EC) 3yr in GALGOTIA, gr.
noida.There was written exam on 30th jan 2008 in MRCE, faridabad of Infosys.
4 colleges participated- Galgotia, MRCE, GNIT, FIT.
They had PPT with us . that was gud n u must present in tht. u will
definitely get some idea abt infosys. I still remember one thing of ppt
ďInfosys need those who want 2 marry with infosys not those who want to have
here frankly speaking i didnt prepare anything for infosys. only luck made
me 2 through this.
there were two sections:-
for critical reasoning u need 2 be focussed, concentated and apply ur full
mind and nothing else u need 2 have(ofcourse gud luck is must!!).
for verbal ability the questions involve tenses, word meanings, prepositions
and some basic english gammer rules.
there were 2 reading compehensions 5 ques each and these d most scoring
among verbal. first read d ques n then find d answer frm d passage.Take care
of one thing FORGET everything which u know abt the passage aleady. just
answer the questions from what is given in the pasage.
Time management is ofcourse important to answer all the questions in time.
NO NEGATIVE MARKING
u will be given rough sheet. Solve ur answers on rough sheet as neat as u
this rough sheet is evaluated at the time of interview
Before the written exam u will be given a form. U r required 2 write ur %
and some other personal details and also paste a photo.
If u take ur photo in formals(tie,coat), that will be best.
Fill ur % CAREFULLY.
Well thatís all about written exam. After sometime d results were announced
and our college students those cleared written were asked 2 report next day
with 2 copies of RESUME, Originals and photocopies of our certificates.
In the interview of Infosys, usually no technical questions are asked unless

so she was asked questions abt robot etc.
Prepare puzzles from internet and from shakuntala devi as puzzles are the
main issue in interview and also some questions of G.K. e.g. president of
india, her husband, capital of u.p., J&K etc.
Basically they r not interested ur answer of puzzles, they r checking ur
So solve them nicely on the paper as u can or explain them verbally how r u
solving ur problem.
