Infosys - Shaheed Bhagat Singh College of Engineering and Technology, Ferozepur, 8 Oct. 2012
One of the question was: There was given a series in which hexagons were there, each hexagon was divided in six parts and numbers were assigned to each part. In first hexagon numbers were present as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. In second 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7. In third 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. In 4th hexagon first number was missing and we had to guess that number.
Answer was obviously 4.
The basic reason backing the aptitude has changed. Now they are looking if the candidate can manipulate things. Another there was given a pie chart and we had to do some calculations based on that and needless to say it was also very easy as only addition, sub, division, multiplication had to be used in it.
5 questions were based on syllogism. Do practice syllogism by using venn diagrams and not theoretically as it makes the task lot more easier and faster (you can check it on this website and in the "DISCUSS IN FORUM" given below each question).
Please do give preference to English as they lay a lot of emphasis on it.
The interviewer didn't ask me for any introduction. He began from asking me what was the latest supercomputer. Then he asked me "When he was coming from Ludhiana to Ferozepur, on the highway he saw that many accidents took place every day.
He asked me that if I were the manager what steps would I take to make an internet application about analyzing the number of deaths taking place everyday, peak time when max number of accidents took place, etc.
I answered that first I would say the web designers to begin working on the design of website and then I will call a meeting to discuss other aspects like how to gather data about accidents. Then he asked me how I could gather data.
I replied that ambulance and police are first to reach there. So I can get data from civil hospitals or police stations. Then he asked me what would I do if I encounter an error after the app is complete. The answer he was expecting was just to say that I will analyse it from the beginning to get out the place of error.
Then he asked that it would be very time consuming to find error in this way. Then I said I will use modular programming in which a small prototype is built and tested and then further modules are added in it by subsequent testing at each level.
He then asked how will I come to know when a particular module is completed. I said that there is a "99% SYNDROME" i.e. managers think that 99% of their work is complete even when only 40% of the work has been done.
So to keep a check on when a module is completed we should set a milestone for every module. Eg: we can set that until the documentation is not complete the module is also not complete.
It was purely a HR interview.
You definitely need to have fluency in English.
The interview lasted for 15 min approx. And results came about in an hour. Alas! I was selected. All thanks to indiabix.com.
Guys am not much of an intelligent person, if I can do you can also do it. The advantage I got was because of their emphasis on English and rigorous practicing on this website for more than one month.
I nearly did every question present on this website and this was the only thing I did. This website is more than sufficient. You can learn lot of things in "DISCUSS IN FORUM" section given below each question. So don't miss even a single comment and keep helping others.
