After the Online test Result declared after 2 hours. Everyone expects their name in the list. I was confident to get selected. Hearts beats going fast as the declare the names but after declaring the 50 names they stop. Everyone thought there will be the another list. But everyone shocked to hear as they announced this is final list of shortlisted students. I was not in the list (It was hard to believe). There was No MCA student in the list. Finally I returned with broken heart from the Main hall. Many of the students broke into tears. This time Infosys team selects only 50 students in aptitude test because of the rescission and other reasons. (Don't know as we ask for the HR but they did not tell us.).
But we forget all this after the couple of days and start preparing for the next company. I got selected in Videocon after appearing in Dell, Newgen Software and some other big companies.
Never lose your heart if you can't make in your dream company. Try and try until you find your deserving place. Hard work always works.
Some Suggested Readings for the aptitude test:
1 - Practice hard Level-3 and Level-2 Questions of Data Interpenetration from Internet and are S Agrawal and other best possible (Don't rely much on RS Aggrawal Book).
2 - Practice hard on English Grammar (Error Correction and Error Delectation) from CAT level book.
3 - Practice puzzle question from internet.
"Hard you practice. There will be more chances for the selection".
"Internet is the vast resource try it and best manner".
All The Best :).
