INFOSYS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 06 FEB 2008 - MORADABAD
This is Mohit Rana from M.I.T., MORADABAD.. Infy came to our college for campus recruitment on 6th Feb. Apart from our college 3 other colleges sat for the drive & 119 out 650 of dem (including me !!) were selected frm my college there are 31 selections.. I exactly don't remember the number frm other colleges.. The ppt started at 9am & person frm infy told us each & every thing. The Mysore campus where we will be having our training was simply awesum.. Be attentive in the ppt.. note down some quick favts about infy...
Then the written test started, prior to starting we were made to fill form of infosys.
The test as usual consisted of 2 sections: (there is no negative marking)
1. Logical Reasoning
logical reasoning consisted of 30ques. in 40mins.
the questions were::
1-5, a puzzle based prob. (rs agarwal type, but more ticky rather than difficult)
6-10, figure probs (too easy, practice some frm rs)
11-16, data sufficiency prob. (rs agarwal sufficient, very easy)
17-20, data interpretation based on bar graph (simple but involves lengthy n precise calculation, better to attempt at last)
21-24, another puzzle (rs type, but try to be attentive for d clues given. It can b a bit tricky n lengthy)
25-30, syllogism ques (too easy, follow d venn diagram method)
Time management is very important, many of friends were not able to solve ol d ques. then d ques paper was taken, generally all of u will be able to crack this paper particularly
Within time given.... u just need to be a bit quick.
n english ques paper was given.. PLEASE Refer to some CAT material coz its level is really very high n it's a real time game coz u need to do 40 ques in 30-35 mins the question pattern was ::
1-5, reading comprehension (particularly in my paper it was very tough n lengthy so be prepared)
6-10, reading comprehension (the level in my paper was as for first one but generally second one is given short n easy... n ques given on rc r not direct rather than theme detection type)
11-20, fill in the blanks (pls refer BARRON's GRE)
21-30, choose correct sentence from 4 given sentences (not easy 1's so b carefull as there is only a slight difference n u hv to select which is more grammatically correct pls refer WREN n MARTIN)
31-40, u have to choose which title suits best for d above given paragraph.
Be careful for English part coz most of the candidates get rejected here only.. Time management is must!!! Solve RC's at last.. Though I did 2 rc's in initial 13mins (as I hav alwez been strong in comprehension ) & hence got 22mins to solve the rest 30 ques from grammar which i did at last!!
so plan the paper according to your strength!!
after d test results were announced in 2 hours, i was very glad to note tat i was selected.. As dere was sectional cut-off which is around 60% for reasoning & 50 % for English, very less students from my college get selected.. After written results, with no time delay HR interviews started. A panel of 6 HR's came who were taking interview in 6 different interview rooms. Mostly of dem were aged between 40-55. But dey were too gentle to d candidates..
but interview of our college students took place next morning in college campus....
Mine was a person of around 50. he was nice n asked me some common ques. he gave me 3 puzzles,

ME: thank you sir.
HR: are you having any backlogs?
ME: no sir
(then he gave me 2-3 forms to write name n sign on)
HR: so tell me about yourself?
(in between he asked about my native place n generally there is no technical but he may ask basics of core subjects or summer training or project as frm mine....)
HR: what is embedded system? ME: told

HR: ok fine....you may leave now
ME: thank you sir... hav a nice day..
(n I came out)
My interview lasted for around 15 mins. All dey chk for is ur communication skills n confidence.. They want persons with excellent communication skills.. N one more thing once u hav cleared d written, almost 75% of ur selection is confirmed. Rejections at HR is less.. So focus well on written part coz its the biggest barrier & once u cross it, u r almost through!!!
After the interviews got over, in about 30mins, final results were announced, i was veryyyyyyy glad dat i was selected.. Celebrations were ol around as this was d 2nd company in which i sat & cracked it !!!
So friends cracking infy is not a difficult task.. All u need is some smart-work, good communication skills & confidence as well as conviction in urself. With this, i bid best wishes to you all!!!
