L & T INFOTECH PAPER ON 21st JANUARY 2008
hey friends ... THIS IS DIXIT MANNAN...currently studying In BCET
gurdaspur doing ECE(6th sem) and placed in L&T infotech... for all those
people who r preparing for L&t infotech... i think this information will
b helpful for u... it was 21st of jan when i went for my first placement
exam..it was sant baba bhag singh college of jalandhar...the reporting
time was 10 am...and the exam started at about 12...
Round 1: written Aptitude exam...
TOTAL STUDENTS APPEARED : 1000+
SHORT LISTED : 190 in written aptitude there were 3 sections....
Section A : it was quantitative aptitude test...there were 30
questions...i think R.S. Aggarwal is more than enough for the
test...this part was quiet easy. the important chapters of RS aggarwal
for this part are: NUMBERS,TIME AND DISTANCE,PROBABILITY,P&C,BOATS &
STREAMS,PROBLEMS ON TRAINS,AVERAGE,RATIO PROPORTION AND GRAPHS AND PIE
CHARTS... these topics are more than enough to clear the
quantitative...LET ME CLEAR THIS POINT THAT TIME MANAGEMENT IS THE MOST
Section B: this part was verbal non- verbal reasoning...this part was
very confusing...in earlier exams i saw there were some similar type of
ques. like if there is ODD MAN OUT then there will b 5 ques. under that
topic...but in our exam i saw all the ques. were of different type...so
prepare well for dis part...cover all types from the book... I THINK
THIS PORTION MADE THE DIFFERENCE...SO COVER ALL THE TYPES ...
Section C : this portion was English...english was also easy...i think
anybody who has cleared 12th exam in english medium can do it,,,only
challenging part was Antonyms and Synonyms. the words were like totally
unknown...prepare for antonyms and synonyms...IN THE END THERE WAS A
PASSAGE...I WAS ALSO OK.. I HAVNT FOLLOWED ANY BOOK FOR ENGLISH... I
THINK THERE IS NO NEED ...JUS GO FOR QUANT AND VERBAL NON VERBAL... THE
TRICK FOR DOING APTI IS GO FOR THE QUES. WHICH HAV MULTIPLE PARTS...LIKE
FOR ONE PASSAGE U HAVE 5 QUES. OR SOME OTHER TYPE...
we had TOTAL OF 90 QUES. AND 90 MINS TO SOLVE THEM...12 TO 1:30..TIME
MANAGEMENT IS VERY IMP. DONT JUS GET STUCK TO ONE PART ONLY..FIRST TRY
TO ATTEMPT 20-20 QUES OF EACH PART AS THERE WAS SECTIONAL CUT-OFF...SO
BE CAREFUL ABT TIME SO I CONSIDER MYSELF LUCKY THAT I WAS AMONG THOSE
ROUND 2: GROUP DISCUSSION...
AT ABOUT 6:30 the result for apti was announced...the different groups
for GD were announced..i was in 16th group...i was very much affraid of
GD but my suggestion will b "Be casual.." Just b urself...they r jus
luking for Confidence and team work..dont overpower anybody..jus b cool
and calm...give ur points at equal intervals...dont try to b oversmart...
Topics were very...jus go thru the current affairs,,,like benazir
bhutto,Nano car, india aussie cricket match ets...my topic was India
australia sydney test...so i was quiet confident... use SIMPLE
ENGLISH...no need to go for hard words,,,be polite and mannered...it was
for 15 mins...at about 9:30 pm we were given the result of gd and forms
were distributed... that form was like resume...it required ur overall
performance...about ur family,school,college...all semesters...extra
cullicular acivities etc etc..fill tht form carefully..it shoul match ur
resume.. out of 190 students 100 were shortlisted for interview next
ROUND 3 : INTERVIEW...

was really very tense..coz after clearing those two rounds nobody wants
to lose...i woke up at 5 in morning... studied some basics of C++ and
