I appeared for Infy test on 26th of Nov. Exam was not that tough but ya they hav realy made d english paper tough. Its really hard to manage d time. If some people r worrying which pattern they r going to face just dont worry take a close look at ur call letter if they hav mentioned that it is of 75 min then its going to be new pattern way.
My advice to all of u frnz is that go through CAT material (any coaching classes). Jus made aquinted urself with 5 types
1) Data Sufficiency
2) Data Interpretation
3) missing or series figures (Lots of given in rs agg...verbal book)
4) Puzzles from rs aggrawal (do all d types)
5) Syllogism (CAT Material n rs aggrawal).
I m Stressing this pt once again go through CAT material it will really help u to manage ur time n also u will be famalirised with tough n variety of prblems as compare to rs aggr..specially in case of data interpretation n data sufficiency n syllogism also and ya jus give two min to urself to go through d paper n to decide a strategy u should know in which part u r more strong nn also should be able to guess easy qs n solve them first n for english it is like a mini cat. I cleared d exam n paper was like this.
Logical : 30 q - 45 min
1-5> question on cube of 10 cm side each cutted into 1000 cubes of 1cm side each.
cubes on edges were coloured with blue colour n inner side wer colred with black colour
rest are non coloured..then q's like ... how many are blue coloured?
how many r black coloured?.... how many r non- coloured? such wer d q's
quite time consuming. i tried it at last.
5-10> Missing figure q's(3 were easy) rest were tough
10-15> data sufficiency
little bit confusing but can be easily done in 6 to 8 min.
Eg. Is a/16>a/10 two cond were given. go through cat material
15-20> data interpretation d most easiest (hardly 4 min)
technology power prodn ... ....
india 95 90 70
uk 90 80 85
germany 80 85 90
calculate d heighest ppf.ans=95*0.5 +90*0.5+70*0.5 such a easy q offcourse they have made some twist n turns in asking other q but was realy v easy
20-25> again a simple puzzle rs agg type
sachin plays offensive. neither shastri nor kambli technicaly sound, dravid plays cover drive well n some other such cond were given. u have to find out which player plays which shot best n his style of playing. was not that tough (hardly 3 to 4 min)n q were asked upon it. q will take some 3 to 4 min.
25-30> not as simple found in rs aggrawal takes some time well confusing have many diagrams to show.show it in ur rough sheet. again go through cat material.
wel thats abt logical.show d rough work wherever possible.
two long passages(1 n half page )10qs on it
10 q on sentence correction
10 q were on critical reasoning
10 q were grammar
u can be caught of if u mark al d q in logical as u hav to show rough work but no probs in english paper at d last moment mark randomly no negative marking.
My interview was v cool(27 th).they havent ask ny tech not even abt my project. my strenth weaknesse (be Prepared to explain it with eg will always help u)2 puzzles. 1 was from shankutla i have done it before. n thefore i solved it correctly he then asked whether i have done it before i said yes never lie. n then he ask me what u can u do with this tie other than this i told him.(4 things he asked). My reading habits, which page (newspaper, i said newspaper) u read it first. n then he asked if i have ny q to be asked i asked them abt d growth of indivisual n general talking. n then they said to me d results will be out within 3 weeks plzplz frnz pray for me. hope this will help u.....success is where preparation n opportunity meet. so best of luck frnz for ur prep ....
