2) Infy has a bond for 1 yr.

ELIGIBILITY : I think it is 65% in 10th, 12th n BE with a 5% relaxation in any one..
STEP 1: PPT
The PPT is for abt 90 min..
Go through the company website on the day before..collect all the relevant details and make a note..it will be much easier for u to follow the PPT..
Make a note of the HR's name..
Be prepared to answer questions like "Why Infosys?" or "What do u knw abt Infosys?" in the HR round..

STEP 3: TEST OF ARITHMETIC REASONING AND ANALYTICAL THINKING
30 QUESTIONS 45 MINUTES
We had 5 sections each with 5 divisions
1) Puzzle based on direction sense..easy
P,Q,R and S are standing at the 4 corners of a square..n/w ,n/e,s/w n s/e respectively..
N something like..If P and R move one and a half distance in the clockwise direction..Q and S one n a half in the anticlockwise direction then in which direction is P with respect to S..something like tat
All the sub questions were based on the similar pattern
2) Figure Completion...tricky..a little tough
5 figures in a series were given n we had to find the missing figure
It was a little tough ..try n go through RS Aggarwal Verbal n Non Verbal Reasoning to get a hang of these kinds of questions..
3) Data Sufficiency...easy
A question was given followed by 2 statements We had to mark
1) If the first statement alone was enough to answer the question
2) If the second statement alone was enough to answer the question
3) If the both the statements were required to answer the question
4) If the question cld not be answered using both the statements
5) If either statement alone was sufficient to answer the question
A little practice from RS Aggarwal Verbal n Non Verbal or any CAT material will help u answer these kinds of questions
4) Data Interpretation...questions were direct but need quick calculations
We were given a table tat had the info abt the sales of 3 companies A,B n C for different years..1990 to 1998..
The total sales n price/unit was given.. We had to calculate stuff like
1) avg price/unit of company C
2) the percentage increase in the no. of units produced by Company A from 1991 to 1992
3) the year in which the no. of units produced by Company C decreased a second time
4) The year in which maximum no of units were produced..something like tat
The price/unit was given in decimals like 3.4 n the sales something like 501 etc.. hence there was a lot of division to do..try to approximate the values n calculate wherever comparison is involved.. Practise from RS Aggarwal Quantitative Aptitude ..try timing ur self..
5) Puzzle based on Blood Relations..easy
A family with members A,B,C,D,E and F...2 married couples..3 females..n the relations among them were given..
N questions like..Which of the following pairs represents a married couple?Etc were aske
Draw a family tree..it'll help u answer the questions
6) Logical deductions
In this section abt 5 statements were given n we had to find out which of them were logically related.. These were not the usual syllogism(all,some etc) type..
It was more like..
a) T is taller than Q
b) R and S are of the same height
c) T is taller than S
d) R is shorter than T
e) Some other statement
Which of these are logically related?
1)eab 2) abc 3)cbd 4)ade
Others had statements like The avg salary was increased by 15%...etc
I think it is best to go with the answer options n choose the most appropriate one..
STEP 4 : VERBAL 40 QUESTIONS 30 MIN
You get 2 comprehensions both were quite simple..but do the comprehensions at the end..read the questions briefly ..then read the comprehension with proper concentration, understanding each statement..u can easily answer the questions 5 in each
10 Sentence Completion
4 statements almost the same but with some difference..mark the one which is grammatically correct..look for spelling mistakes..grammar errors etc..
10 questions based on choose the best option to replace the underlined part..
Simple paragraphs were given n questions were asked like which of these statements can be inferred from the para, which is false according to the para etc..
STEP 5: HR INTERVIEW
In the HR round u are basically asked abt ur self, ur résumé. There are no tech questions asked n even if asked it will be very basic stuff..
They also ask puzzles..u need not solve them..they only look at ur approach..
The questions I was asked..
1) Tell me abt ur self
2) If u were to organize an activity in our company that is fun, stressful and involves physical activity wat wld u organize n how wld u go abt doing it??
3) Abt any project or computer course tat I had attended
4) Any questions??
They hardly eliminated people in the HR..it is enough if u speak confidently..
Getting thru Infy is not tough at all..If ur good with ur Apti n have a good command over English its enough..
