INFOSYS PAPER & INTERVIEW - 16 JAN 2008
Infosys conducted their first campus recruitment programme for 2009 batch at our college and i must say the papper was bit difficult, when compared to their previous papers. English part was normal.
The paper was conducted in two phases
1.) Aptitude : 30 Ques - 40 min.
2.) English : 40 Ques - 35 min.
Q1.) There r 4 players A, B, C & D who play a game 4 times & each time one player looses and as a punishment he doubles the money of other three players. Each player looses once in alphabetical order while playing the game 4 times.At the end each player is left with 32 Rs.
Now there were 5 questions based on the above data like who started with the maximum amount of money, who had the minimum after second round, who had the maximum after third round,who started with minimum, etc.
Q2.) 5 quest were based on figures in which we have to find the next occuring figure in a given sequence of figures.
Q3.) 5 ques. were based on data suffiency(easy).
Q4.) 5 ques. were on pie charts,percentages of import & export of india to different countries were given in angles so they had to be converted in actual percentages,calculations were lengthy as the options were very close to round of percentages.
Q5.) 5 ques. were based on syllogism.
Q6.) 5 ques. were based on Data Interpretation.
Over all aptitude section was very logical and lengthy.
First 2 questions were large passages which were followed by 5 simple questions each. Passages were quiet big but questions followed were very simple.
Q3.) It consisted of 6 questions.There were 4 sentences given in each question and we had to find the best gramatically & logically correct sentence out of those 4.
Q4.) There were 6 incomplete sentences & 4 options were given with each.We had to choose the option which best fits the blank.
Q5.) There were 6 small paragraphs given & each paragraph was followed by a question like what could be the best conclusion of the above paragraph,or which option contradicts with the conclusion of the above para. or what could be the logical continuation of the above para.
There were 2 other main questions which had 6 parts each. Questions were based on simple grammar. Over all English section was easy but lengthy.
TIME was the major factor. Hence ur mind should run fleeter than wind. Joining any kind of coaching class won't help. If u have it in urself then no one can stop u. Just have confidence & be optimistic.
There was sectional cut off which as per my belief was 60% in each section. 31 out of 188 eligible students were selected in the written test
Second phase consisted of two interviews. It would be ill logical to classify them as technical or H R as both of them had questions related to logic, puzzle, hobbies, sports, etc.
My first interview lasted for about 40 mins. There were two people sitting very much relaxed opposite to me. And I ofcourse was very nervous. They asked me to explain about myself apart from what is mentioned in CV. They asked me about my family. questions were asked regarding my hobbies, my favourite sport (cricket & table tennis), and the role of media in cricket.
A simple question was asked that what would i do if my views start contradicting with rest of my team members. I was also asked that why I want to join INFOSYS. At last there were puzzles.
Puzzle : A bulb is hanging with the help of a string and the other end of the string is attached to the ceiling of a room. Length of the string is such that bulb just touches the top of my head.
I'm not provided with any kind of length measuring device. How can I find the height of the room. (based on oscillations of a simple pendulum).
How can u get 1000 using eight 8s. My first interview was fine as i was able to solve the puzzles. Just have great knowledge regarding your hobbies and never try to fool them. speak effortless & very clear. Have confidence & have faith dear.
Second interview mostly had questions regarding what we had studied in our school time. Eg : what is a Voltaic cell, what is the use of a blast furnace. What is the use of silica. Any 5 properties of metals. Name the 4 protiens present in a human cell. Then i was asked about the best thing & the worst thing which I faced that particular day.
My second interview was excellent as i could answer very well. Person opp to me said very good & finally I had a hand shake with him. His smile just hinted me about my selction. Results were announced @ 9:15 pm. 29 students including ME made it for the final selection. I'm very elated just because I'm one among those 29 who r the first one to be recriuted by INFOSYS Technologies in the year 2008 and it happened on 16th January 2008. We will join INFOSYS probably by oct. 2009.
