INFOSYS PATTERN & INTERVIEW - 28 MAY 2007 - BANASTHALI
Neha from Banasthali here. 151 students appeared 4 da exam n 46 cud clear written exam n 27 (including me) got selected.
dere were 2 test papers:
1) whole paper pattern was from R.S.Agrawal (verbal n non-verbal reasoning) Though i have never done dat book, so cud make it out somehow using my own logic but u people plz go thru dat book if u want 2 get in infosys.
dere were 30 questions n 40 minutes.
5 of the same type e.g. there are some students in a class, neha is sitting at 21st position from left n 35th position frm right. how many students are there ?
these five questions were vv easy ne1 can do dat.
den 5 nonverbal ques (odd one out).
dese were also easy after dat i dt remember 10 questions' type but v easy quetions den tuff part comes 4 dem who have not done dat book.
5 questions from syllogiums.
1)some apples are bananas.
2) some grapes are apples.
3)some bananas are apples.
den 5 options.
den a para (puzzle type) just like u do 4 TCS (from barrons) n five quetions based on dat. i did guess work 4 last 10 questions b'coz dat was not possible 2 do 4 a person widout doin practice n verbal reasoning. so u all plz go thru dat book.
2) English test: dat also I did myself b'coz i dint no wat kind of paper de give. 2 paras n 10 questions i did all guess work 4 dat. den 20 questions based on ur knowledge though not easy. maintain ur speed thruout the whole exam.
