Infosys Interview Experience - Chennai, Oct 26, 2014
If you're reading this, you're probably going to be writing the Infosys Test soon. Let me share my experience and I hope it helps at least one of you guys.
I got the call letter for my aptitude test ten days before the test. I had my test on the 25th of OCT in Satyabama College, Chennai.
First, let me tell you something. Every corner you turn around, people are going to be more than happy and willing to scare you off saying the Infosys Test is going to be really tough and difficult to get through. DO NOT listen to them.
There is nothing much you can prepare for this test. I thought I was going to flunk. But, that was only until I began my test. Only then, I realized, Infosys only wants to check your thinking ability.
There were 3 sections. Analytical, Quantitative and Verbal.
The first section had sums based on Data sufficiency and Data interpretation. I was given sufficient time to complete the test.
The quant section had 10 questions only and I was given 35 mins to finish. Quant was the most easiest to crack. I didn't have questions where you had to apply formulas and keep calculating until you get the answer. NO. These questions were purely, 100 % to test our ability to think. The answers were all in the question itself. I just had to apply my mind to find the answer. So, think, think and think.
The verbal part was the longest and quite difficult. I had exactly 40 mins to answer 40 question. I had two sets of paragraphs. Like reading comprehension. And the rest of the questions were error spotting, punctuation, spellings, etc.
I received the call letter the same night saying I was selected for the final round, the very next day.
So, I went for the face to face interview the next day at Jeppiar College, Chennai.
I had to wait for four long hours before I go called for the Interview. This round was a combination of HR and Tech round.
My interview hardly lasted 15 minutes. The HR was friendly and I felt comfortable. So, no issues there.
I began by talking about myself. Then explained my projects in detail and then he started asking questions. Few questions I can remember are,
2nd normalization form.
Difference between function overriding and overloading.
Told me to write a program to check if a number is a prime number.
And then finally, he asked me what I knew about latest technologies. I spoke about the cloud, Mobile computing and Digital media.
That's where my interview ended and I was informed that I would get my results in two weeks.
And it I didn't get it after two weeks! By the end of fourteen days, I was a nervous wreck! But, there was nothing I could do other than wait.
And after 29 torturous days, I received my offer letter and I'm finally an Infoscion!
All in all a good experience.
