INFOSYS PAPER & INTERVIEW - 23 MAR 2007
I m on top of da world coz i got selected in Infosys. dis was my Ist apti as well as first personal interview. Here is an overview as well as sum tips n tricks.
Quantitative aptitude--30 Q. for 30 minutes
It was damn difficult.
It was entirely different from wat was Expected.
Usual papers contained series, puzzles, syllogism etc
But We had 3 puzzles n just one syllogism ques with a q. on figure series having 5 parts.
Please start preparing for any aptitude test now.
or atleast 5 days in advance before appearing for test.
there is a cube of 10 cm side coloured red. der is a 2 cm strip of green colour on each face along each side. if cube has been cut into 125 equalparts. then answer da Ques--
(1)how many cobes had 3 green faces.
(2)How many cubes were not coloured.
(3)how many cobes had at least one face coloured.etc.
time management is necessary coz without time management after solving 10 Ques u will hear invigilator announcing '5 min remaining' and he will consficate ur paper literally.
check for tricks to solve Syllogism Qs from CAT material of any management training institute.
give only one minute to one problem.
don't depend on others to copy as nobody will get time.
Verbal Aptitude--30 Qs for 40 minutes
there were two damn big paragraphs and some fault finding Questions with some problems on best fit. i think u will not be able 2 prepare good for dis test as der are unexpected questions always.
attempt all the Ques as early as possible
attempt those Qs first containing small sentences.
don't read whole paras plz...just read a Q and scan da para for answer.
read the answers with good concentration coz if all da answers are almost same, some may contain some silly errors like "then for Than", etc.
my PI was really good and interviewer was really impressed with me.
Coz i cud justify every sentance i spoke and i did not bluff for a single moment. i communicated very well. he asked me sum qs related to my profile. then he asked me a puzzle and i wasn't able to answer it. but i tried alot and gave him two valid clues to solve the problem. he was impressed n he only said dat i didn't want da answer but i wanted to see ur approach.
den he only told me da solution. I wud suggest to pick up Questions from dis site only and hence please prepare ur answers for all possible questions of a HR interview.
do self talk while sleeping with positive thinking in mind and get da ans of Qs related to urself.
ask ur best friends for ur good qualities.
ask ur family for ur ad qualities.
give mock interviews to ur communication skills teachers.
prepare to speak well.
some answers like "tell me something about urself" u can byheart also.
concentrate on puzzles.
u can refer puzzles by shakuntla devi.
that's all friends
hope u will get something from my experiences
