I gave infy. exam on 10th April in Amritsar luckily i made through it. A total of about 800 students gave the written test out of which only 143 were shortlisted for interview and out of them 92 were declared placed.
Written test: duration- 45 min, questions -30
The test was tough but can be cleared with not much trouble if one lays emphasis on time management and off-course c2d policy can give help
