Example: 1.SOME BIRDS ARE STONES.SOME TIGERS ARE BIRDS.ALL STONES ARE
GRAPES. Similarly 4 qns wer given and asked that Which of the following is
More Logically correct..They have not given Conclusions.. only Statements.
I felt that the reasoning paper was easy but the English paper was bit on
the tougher side. Anwer sheet consists of one page like the OMR sheet , you
just need to circle the correct option number and write that number in the
space provided…..with blue/black ball point pen.
(ii)ENGLISH COMPREHENSION TEST (English grammar + passages). Questions : 40
Time : 30 minutes
1-5> Reading comprehension (easy but solve at last only, if you solve it
first, you will end-up guessing for many questions, very very lengthy)
6-10> Reading comprehension (it was too easy, try to read it fast while
11-18> fill in the blanks with suitable sentences!! (easy ones according to
19-26>choose the one among 4 suitable phrases(sentences similar to the
underlined part)for the underlined part of the given sentences. (sentence
improvement……Be careful sometimes no improvement is required choose the same
27-34> choose correct sentence from four given sentences (easy ones but be
careful, there is only a slight difference and you have to select which is
more grammatically correct)
35-40> you have to choose which Course of Action suits best for the above
given paragraph. (Mainly this specifies your managerial abilities.) Time
management is very important, many of my friends were not able to solve all
questions and even read it. Be careful for English part because most of the
candidates get rejected here only...
Time management is must!!! Solve passages at last... I did 30 questions in
15mins & hence got 15 mins to solve the reading comprehensions which I did
at last!! so plan the paper accordingly!! After the test results were
announced in 2 hours, I was very glad to note that i was selected.. As There
was sectional cut-off wich is around 60% for reasoning & 50 % for english,
very less students got selected……(about 36 out of nearly 400 students) I
have not written much about HR interview because I felt that it was quite
easy if you good communication skill .The first 10 seconds is very important
as they see how your body language is So Be Confident . After written test
results, with no time delay
HR interviews started. A panel of 4 HR`s came who were taking interview in 4
different rooms. All they check for,in HR, is your communication skills and
confidence.. They want persons with excellent communication skills.. No
technical questions will be asked.. And one more thing once you have cleared
the written test, almost 90% of your selection is confirmed. But Rejections
at HR was very much more(in our case out of 36 only 15 got rejected). So
focus well on written part & Communication skills because its the biggest
barrier & once you cross it, you are almost through!!! So friends cracking
infosys paper is not a difficult task.. All you need is little smart-work,
good communication skills & confidence as well as conviction in yourself
My best wishes to all!!!My badluck is I cleared 1st round, but got rejected
in HR ..
