INFOSYS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 30 JAN 2008 - FARIDABAD
I m Anuj Gupta studying B.Tech(EC) 3yr in GALGOTIA, gr. noida.There was written exam on 30th Jan 2008 in MRCE, faridabad of Infosys. 4 colleges participated- Galgotia, MRCE, GNIT, FIT.
They had PPT with us . that was gud n u must present in tht. u will definitely get some idea abt infosys. I still remember one thing of ppt “Infosys need those who want 2 marry with infosys not those who want to have affair”
here frankly speaking i didnt prepare anything for infosys. only luck made me 2 through this.
there were two sections:-
for critical reasoning u need 2 be focussed, concentrated and apply ur full mind and nothing else u need 2 have(ofcourse gud luck is must!!).for verbal ability the questions involve tenses, word meanings, prepositions and some basic English grammer rules.there were 2 reading comprehensions 5 ques each and these d most scoring among verbal. first read d ques n then find d answer frm d passage.Take care of one thing FORGET everything which u know abt the passage already. just answer the questions from what is given in the pasage.Time management is ofcourse important to answer all the questions in time.
NO NEGATIVE MARKINGu will be given rough sheet. Solve ur answers on rough sheet as neat as u can.this rough sheet is evaluated at the time of interviewBefore the written exam u will be given a form. U r required 2 write ur % and some other personal details and also paste a photo.If u take ur photo in formals(tie,coat), that will be best.Fill ur % CAREFULLY.
Well that’s all about written exam. After sometime d results were announced and our college students those cleared written were asked 2 report next day with 2 copies of RESUME, Originals and photocopies of our certificates.
In the interview of Infosys, usually no technical questions are asked unless u mention something big in ur resume e.g. my friend mentioned about robotics so she was asked questions abt robot etc.Prepare puzzles from internet and from shakuntala devi as puzzles are the main issue in interview and also some questions of G.K. e.g. president of india, her husband, capital of u.p., J&K etc.Basically they r not interested ur answer of puzzles, they r checking ur approachSo solve them nicely on the paper as u can or explain them verbally how r u solving ur problem.usually very old people r HRs of Infosys. They want us 2 be very POLITE and confident.So be POLITE and DON’T SHOW UR ATTITUDE. DON’T ARGUE with them.Prepare some common things e.g. which newspaper u read, name of its editor, which sections of paper u read, hw u gather information, wht u surf on internet, do u hv any girlfriend etc.
My HR was a very old person. My experience is as follows:
HR: come inMe: gud afternoon sirHR: have ur seatMe: thnku sirHr: give me ur resumei stood and gave it to him
Hr: tell me abt urselfMe: bla blaHr: u hv filled ur % in ur form.

Well that’s all I was not asked any puzzle or something related 2 studies.
I m also writing some points where my friends make mistakes:
When he asks r u confident on ur % say yes. If u have any doubt clear it after ur interview by taking help of ur TPO etc. Don’t show that u lack of confidentPaste ur photo in formals as I hv already toldDon’t argue with interviewer. Don’t show attitude.Be POLITE and HONEST. Of course hv gud body lang and eye contact etc etc.listen to them CAREFULLY
Then after waiting for sometime results were announced and my name was there. Among Galgotia, 90 were selected.
Good luck friends
