This is Ramakanth frm Nalanda Institute of Engineering & Technology, Sattenapalli. Recently Infosys visited Vignan College for Off-Campus selections. Totally 739 members attended selections, 128 cleared the written test & totally 55 got placed in the Company. Luckily i am also one of the 55 members who got placed. So i want to share my experiences with u.
The total procedure for Infosys selection is of two stages, They r
2)Tech cum HR
Written test consists of 2 papers, they are
Reasoning paper consists of 30 quos should be solved in 40 mins
first 5 quos are based on Cubes. The problem is: If a cube of dimensions on 3*4*5 coloured with three different colors namely Red, Green, Black are painted on opposite corners of the cube.this cube is cut down into 78 smaller cubes.Of these 78, 73 are smaller in dimension & remaining 5 are bigger than remaining but of equal dimension.
From these given information 5 quos were asked. They are of this type
i)How many cubes are there painted with red colr?
ii)How many cubes are there of painted on three sides?
iii)How many cubes are there of painted on two sides?
iv)How many cubes are there of painted on only one side?
v)How many cubes are of unpainted? I cant remeber the dimension right ,but the quos r like these.
Next 5 quos are on Non-verbal reasoning i.e., odd man out series.This is very easy section to answer in very less time.Out of 5 quos 4 are straight out frm R.S.Agarwal Reasoning text book.So read that book thoroughly especially 3rd chapter namely Classifications in Non-Verbal part to answer these quos.
Next 5 quos are on Data sufficiency, these r also easy ones.repeated frm previous papers
Next 5 quos are on Data Interpretation,these r tougher than earlier ones. He gave the graphical representation of the incomes of 8 management institutes of three years. All 5 quos r on Percentages, so be well prepare percentages & try to learn speed maths (fast solving) to answer this section. I failed to solve these quos
so i randomly picked the answers bcoz there is no -ve marking.
Next 5 quos are on Puzzle test, He gave information about Six friends about their heights, weights, gender. First of all u have to analyse the info. & arrange them in increasing & decreasing order. if u done it u can answer the quos very easily.
Next 5 quos are on Syllogism. Out of these 5 quos 1 quo is straight out frm R.S.Agarwal book. Others also of same type, if u use Venn diagrams its time consuming so use venn diagrams in effective manner.
This is all about Reasoning paper.
Verbal paper consists of 40 quos to be answered in 30 min. This is little bit tougher than reasoning paper if u poor in English otherwise its also easy paper, It consists of two big passages. the quos on these passages are very easy. If u read the passage faster then u can answer the quos very easily. Reading newspaper daily helps to solve this section.
Next 5 quos are on fill in the blanks with word that can fit grammatically & logically. Thse r also easy & little bit confusing, logical thinking is necessary to answer this section.
Next 5 quos are on replacing the underlined phrase with suitable option. this is also very confusing.
Next 5 quos are finding the conclusions for five small passages. This is also confusing
Next 5 quos r finding the grammatically correct sentence frm the options given below. This is also confusing but easy if u r good in grammer. Especially they are asking on Perfect tense. so learn it carefully.
Sorry frnds i cant remember the whole paper, i suggest u to read news paper daily & read the Wren&martin book for grammer. This is all about my written test.
The results were announced at 3:30 pm afternoon, my HR waqs conducted at 9:30 pm night. I waited patiently for 6 hours with some tension. Luckily there are no technical quos only hr.
I entered the cabin & wished my HR, she is a lady, she also wished me & asked to take the seat. Next she asked my resume & i handled it to her. She asked about my family details. Next she asked "What kind person u are?". Next she asked the justification of all my personal skills mentioned in my Cv. I explained her with suitable examples. Next she asked some crucial quos like "If u cant adjust within the team u r working what do u do at that time?" I answered very carefully & very convincingly. Next she asked about my extra activities other than curricullum. Next she asked about my hobbies. Finally with a clean smile in her face she asked me to leave, I also left the cabin with small smile.
My suggestion to face the HR is Be confident & be truthful. Hope my experience will help u...
