INFOSYS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 07 AUG 2005 - KOLKATTA
Well i got a call letter from infy that i have to attend a test on 7th august at any of the venues provided, i chose the KOLKATA centre(LAMARTS) as am from kolkata. Since the letter was recieved by me only 7 days b4 the test i started my preparation straight from SAKUNTALA DEVI's "puzzles to puzzle you" book and a few past infy papers. (R.S Aggarwal is must for basic knowledge & if u want to answer all questions in apti round u have to study George .J.Summers). They conducted only 2rounds
In this round u r given an initial 45 mins to fill up a form about ur details(hey get two references name and number as u have to fill it in the form also if u know anyone in Infy get his name and number, that will help a lot)
This round was a written test based on 2 set of papers.
The first set was aptitude cosisiting of puzzles and problems & a tricky summer's question(total 10 question in 1hr).I dont think its necessary at all to provide the questions....also go thru last few papers...u will know the pattern and solve sakuntala devi book(a must). U will be given an extra sheet to do rough,try to do them neatly and answer all quetion since there's no -ve marking,cause u never know if u guess the right answer.
The second set was basic English knowledge like paragraph reading,tense,grammar,appropiate word filling etc.No need to study anything for english,only answer all the questions provided(total 50 questions in 1hr),dont leave anything.
I ANSWERED ALL THE 60 QUESTION(10 APTI + 50 ENGLISH)
