Infosys Campus Fresher Placement Pattern (Aptitude, Reasoning, Verbal And  Interview)

Company Name: Infosys
Type: Fresher, Job Interview

Hi all,
I am Shrey Mehrotra from Anand Engineering College, Agra.

Infosys came at Hindustan College of Science and Technology, Mathura on 17th  of feb,2010. Hindustan and Anand College are part of Sharda Group of  Institutions. So both of the colleges were appearing for infy. I dont know the  exact figures of Hindustan but from my college 232 candidates were short listed  out of which 22 were finally selected and i am one of the lucky one.

Their criteria was 60,60 and 65(in B-Tech). There was no leniency on  percentage. Even 64.99 was not allowed. Out of 232 only 23 were able to clear  the written examination and 22 were finally selected. So the MAIN part is  written....WORK HARD FOR IT....GIVE YOUR BEST!!!!

DETAILS:

There were 2 rounds:
  Aptitude Test Reasoning Section Verbal Section HR interview  
In aptittude test there was sectional cut-off,reasoning paper was easy and  the verbal one was average but the main problem was sectional cut-off which i  think was high so be accurate and attempt a lot(there was no negative marking).  Also just dont go for fluke like marking all b's....If u are going for fluke  then also do it  smartly because i think they even check that.

Reasoning Section (30 ques, 40 min)- RS Aggarwal Verbal
  5 ques on Data Sufficiency{easy} 5 ques on Series(figure Interpretation){again easy} 5 ques on Data Intrepretation{average} 5 ques on Puzzle{normal} 5 ques on another Puzzle{a bit difficult and time taking} 5 ques on Syllogism{easy if practised}  
Verbal Section(40 ques, 35 min)---deciding factor[time management is  required]
  Two passages and 5 question from each passages{Do it at the last as   passages are lengthy and time taking.Also before reading the passage see the   question one time.} Sentence Correction{Be careful about tense mistake, spelling mistake,   using of  pronoun. My opinion mark the option which clicks you first   and dont waste too much time on this part...Rest is at your wish} Fill in the Blanks{These were mostly prepositions..Do this part also   fast} Theme Detection Identification of some supporting or weakening sentences about a   paragraph given.  
I am sure if you are well prepared then reasoning part can be done easily(BUT  BE ACCURATE & ATTEMPT MAXIMUM) but manage your time well for verbal(as time  given is less and questions  are more). Just prepare well for written as  interview is an easy part(in case of infy i should say as they select aprrox 90%  of students who had cleared the apti)

HR Interview:
Now the final section. The best way to face the interview is to stay calm  and polite. Amswer confidently and if you dont know any answer then admit  it...you can say "Sorry sir I'm unable to recollect it right now" instead of  directle saying "sorry". Main thing is to speak confidently....Make yourself  presentable.

My Experience:
HR was cool though there were situations at which he pressurised me but just  to divert me from my calm nature(which i told him as my strong point). I was the  last one to go for interview so was pretty much relaxed and was not nervous at  all (don't know why)...My interview was a funny one instead of being serious.
Me: Sir please may i come in.

HR: Yes.
Me: Good Evening sir.

HR: Good Evening and have a seat. Fill up this form( he gave me form)
Me: While i was filling the form there i had to mention time of interview but i  dont had  watch so i asked him for time(a blunder so always take your  watch)

HR: Tell me about yourself(A general question just to check your confidence  level)
Me: I told him all my details and when i was out of matter i said to him "That's  it"

HR: That's it(in an unusual way)
Me: By his reaction I again continued telling him about my social service events  which were the part of my resume...(he was intersted in that) BY THIS TIME I WAS  TOO RELAXED

HR: Interuppting me "Boy it doesn't seems to be that you are here for the  interview"
Me: Why sir.

HR: You are not like your other batchmates who were tensed and nervous and  were also serious.You are too calm and relaxed.
Me: Sir i cant help it out as i am like that only..may be this is because  calmness is my  strong point..

HR: Is this your first interview?
Me: Yes sir..

HR: Ok tell me more about yourself?
Me: At this point i took a pause as i was completely out of matter at that  point, then after thinking i diverted him to my hobbies and explained that.

HR: What was your most embarrasing moment?
Me: (This one was unexpected)I answered..

HR: Can you explain it that what exactly happened(related to embarrasing  moment)
Me: Sorry sir i don't want to discuss it right now..It's personal

HR: He pressurised me..
Me: Again i said sorry in a rude way(as i got frustrated)

HR: If you will tell me i'll surely select you..
Me: I sticked to my point..

HR: You were saying that you are a calm person and now you are getting  frustrated?
Me: Sorry sir for being rude but its really personal...bla bla bla

HR: Why should i hire you?
Me: I told him my strength and other things...Then said "As you know I'm an  electrical engineer and may be one day while working in your company you would  call me up and say hey Shrey my table lamp sucks.at that time I will be present  there with a screw-driver and will repair it within few minutes. So I'll serve  you as a software engineer cum electrician always at you service. (This one was  good and he was smiling at the answer)

HR: Ohhhh!!!!
Me: Sorry sir for cracking the joke..

HR: No problem...Boy you have a good sense of humour...
Me: Thank you sir...

HR: Anything that you want me to ask?
Me: I directly said no as i was not at all prepared for the interview and was  not knowing how to answer such type of questions.

HR: ok that's it..
Me: Nice being here and eagerly waiting to meet you again. I left...{That was  all and finally I was selected}

ALL THE BEST TO EVERYONE... PREPARE WITH FULL DEDICATION.....  HOPE THIS  POST WILL BE USEFUL TO YOU...
