This is Tapan Sood. I have given Infosys written Test on 25th November 2007 in Cambridge School Rajaouri Garden Delhi. Pattern was like this:
1]General Ability test 30 questions, 40minutes.
2]Verbal Ability test 40 questions,35 minutes.
General Ability Test:
This test was very much time consuming.Each question was taking 5 minutes to solve..I had solved about 14 questions in 35 minutes and rest were guesses as there was no negative marking.
1-5 were questions on Dice.
There are six dices, Some conditions are as:
1.)Only three of them should show 4 or more.
2.)Atleast one dice should show six.
Now 1-5 were questions based on these conditions. They were seeming easy but were not so simple. I firstly attempted all these questions.
Now 6-10 were questions of figures. I guess they were some what complex.
7-15 were questions based on data sufficiency. Questions were like questions on ages, seating arrangement etc. They were easy.
15-25 were questions on Data Interperation. They were very much time consuming.
25-30 were questions of Predicate Logic. They were easy.
Verbal Ability Test:
This section was relatively easy. First of all there were comprehensions. They were very much easy, then next there were fill in the blanks.
Result was declared on the same day at about 2:30pm
I had cleared written test. Interview date was on next day.
There were two panels for interview. In one panel there was a lady and a male and in second panel both were males. I was called by second panel. I have done B.Tech. in CSE and currently i am working in Airtel as DSL Engineer. They firstly ask me to introduce myself. I did. They started asking questions regarding communication from me. But when they realized my comuters background then they asked me questions like:

Ans:I answered accordingly about my interest in software field etc.

Ans: I answered.
Thats it..Do you want to ask something?
I said, "Sir, are you satisfied with my answers?"
They refused to tell anything. They said anything else you wanna ask? I said No.
Then i left. Later on documents were checked (marksheets etc.) and we were told that result will be declared after 2-3 weeks.
Just waiting for that now!!!!!!!
