INFOSYS PAPER & INTERVIEW - 21 MAR 2007 - BANGALORE
Here are some tips to crack Infy. As you know the exam pattern of infy has been changed recently. Before we used to have a lot of puzzles and then basic English. Now the pattern is somewhat easy. 100 % Presence of mind and 75% intelligence can get you through. Mine was an online exam. Guys the questions cannot be solved fully in their provided time. Some questions need lot of thinking and consumes time. Just skip those questions taking lot of time and finish others.. 'coz you can solve others with ease and after gaining confidence by solving those questions.. surprisingly the question you left will seem easier. So just carry on with the easier ones as fast as possible. The Non- English session has questions from the following....
1. Data sufficiency
2. Data Interpretation.
3. SYLLOGISM - - Very important and somewhat difficult. Refer the 9 rules from R.S Aggarwal. Memorise those. However the question is in different manner from that of RS Aggarwal. Here i give an example however this is not the same question but the same pattern...
statement A: Some men are educated.
B: Educated persons prefer small families
C: All small families are educated.
D: some men prefer small families.
E: bla bla bla bla.... ( this is not the exact sentence man... just some other sentences.. i cant remember..)
Choose from the following which is logically correct..
Here the answer is ABD. Like wise some 5 questions.. If you prepare it throughly you can easily get 5/5 in less time. saving time for others.
4. Puzzle test-- This does not mean the puzzles we see in Shahuntala devi but they'll give a passage and we must get the details from that and solve the questions following it. These examples can be found in RS Aggarwal verbal and Non verbal reasoning. Concentration is the key !
5. Spot the odd figure out:
This session was somewhat tough guys... Also you should have good pair of eyes to view the images correctly.. If possible get a lens !!! Observe deeply and mark the answers. Refer RS aggarwal for this too...
For all the above portions refer RS Aggarwal verbal and non verbal... Its enough. But work out all the examples... and test yourselves with some hard exercise. RS Agg is more than enough. Also refer.. from the same book ... series completion, direction sense test, Blood relation, cubes and dice...
Regarding English session. It was a bit tough. Attempt the passage comprehension at the last else you'll be reading it till next batch comes !! Long passages.. Good grammar can get you through in this session.
After the finish of online exam we were asked to wait for 1/2 an hour.... Finally the shortlisted candidates list were exhibited. By God's grace i was fortunate to be in it. Out of 30.. 5 were shortlisted....
Soon we were called for HR round... I went last... i was interviewed by 2 fems... Just asked personal questions... Then asked puzzles...
1. there was a water bottle in front of us.. they asked me give 10 examples how you can use it other than filling liquid...
me: blah.. blah... blah...
2. If i drink some water from this bottle how can you measure the reamaining amount without any conventional measurement !!!
said -- can be done by counting the number if stripes in that bottle... But they were not impressed asked me some other way... I surrendered!!
3. Gave me a puzzle....
Bring 100 out of seven 3's.... another boy in my batch was asked bring 23 from five 5s. However we both ddnt solve it... Its not a problem they just see how you proceed .... Later i found the answer to be as 333/3 - 33/3 = 100 and 5*5 - 5/5+5/5 = 23
Be confident and loud in speaking to them. They just check your comm. tats all...
Finally i'm asked to wait for 3 weeks to get the result... However i have no confidence personally gettin in... Pray for me !!!
