B) Mathematical Critical Reasoning (a new section been introduced this year consisting of time and work, coding-decoding, probability, Puzzles questions).
C) Verbal ability (Sentence improvement, fill in the blanks, passages, sentence correction).
2) Technical and HR interview together.
It all started with the aptitude test. The test was of 95 minutes. The results of the test was announced 3 4 hours later.
I was selected in this test.
Next day, i.e on 10th September I and the other candidates were called for the interview.
It was around 3 pm when I entered the PI room.
Interviewer first greets me the hour of the day and shakes hand with me and asks me to sit down. Conversation starts after that.
Interviewer: Tell me something about yourself.
Interviewer: Looking at my CV, so you have written you have painting as your hobby. So draw something for me.
Me: I was taken aback by surprise but ultimately had drawn it. I had drawn a house and blah blah.
Interviewer: Why didn't you draw the house like this? Haven't you studied engineering drawing?
Me: Yes sir, I had, but I had it in my 2nd Sem and apart from that am a CSE student so. Didn't have any interest in it.
Then he went out to attend a call. After around 3 4 minutes he came back.
Interviewer: Sorry Indraneel, so where were we. ?
Me: Its ok Sir. You just checked my drawing.
Interviewer: Oh ya. So tell me something about your family and do you have any sibling?
Interviewer: So tell me about some latest trends in IT industry.
Me: Told about NoSql database.
Interviewer was not convinced. So he asked me about cloud computing.
Again his facial expression showed his non-satisfaction.
Interviewer: So what is polymorphism?
Interviewer: What is a Linked List?
Interviewer: What is Semaphore?
Interviewer: Can you write a code to find out the GCD in C. ?
Me: Yes sir. Wrote it.
Interviewer: Checked it and said ok. Am done Indraneel.
Me: I thought he was done. So I got up to thank him.
But to my utter surprise he said "Tumko Itna Jaldi kyun hai yaar".
I didn't know what to tell at that point in time. So gave a smile, shook hands and walked away.
By the last statement I thought Infosys was not for me.
But after 3 days results were announced and I got selected. !I was surprised.
So moral of the story is. They make statements and questions to surprise you. To check how you react. So be calm and quiet. You never know what the interviewer is actually searching in you.
I think I am able to give you a good trailer of how a Interview goes. Hope this helps. Best of Luck.
