Infosys Latest Placement Paper Pattern on 4th Feb 2010 | Hyderabad
1). Written test
2). HR round only
Hi, Friends, There was no any Technical Round. So
no need to preparation for it.. Just focus for HR Round.
NO TECHNICAL ROUND?
Because; They will train u for 6-8months when u get to join in their
company. Infosys don’t bother about your Technical skills.
Eligibility: 68%(strict) [no 67.99% also] with 0 active
backlogs. consistent 60% 10th,inter marks.
At first ,at about 9:30am we had a Presentation Seminar
on the Vision, Goals, Achievements of Infosys which was given by a HR from
Infosys. Try to be attentive guys and Note Down Interesting Points
in this seminar because it will help u at the end of the day in the Interview
This went about for 45 mins and soon they gave application
forms and question papers to all the students. First they will give you
Aptitude (Logical Reasoning) paper. you will have like 2 mins to go through.
This is very important as soon as u get the paper. Just try to review the
questions at a glance in those 2 mins. Quickly..
This is the time where u will get to know about questions
pattern, order.. You need to identify the easy ones and hard ones…Don’t worry I
will tell u which ones are easy and hard.
So the Aptitude Paper Will Have: 30
Questions to be solved in 40 mins.
The following are the list of questions:
1-5) A para is given and five questions are asked on it.. Its
related to 4guys where money is distributed equally between A, B and C, D and
some conditions bla bla.. and the questions are like..
- Who has highest money and least?
- How much does B have ..
- how much does C has?
These are not time taking questions.. these ques are of
normal level only..
6-10) Figure Continuation / Sequence. They
will give u a set of 4 figures and followed by 5 options where in you have to
select next sequence of figure from the five options.
This is also easy if u have practiced it before.. Guys
practice these questions from R.S. Agarwal Nonverbal and u will
become familiar with these kind of questions if u do so.
11-15) Data Sufficiency Questions:
…Guys here it will test your Quantitative Aptitude.
1 Question based on Ages,
1 Ques based on numbers,
1 Ques based on Compound Interest,
1 Ques based on Selling Price, Profit Concept,
1 Ques from Ratios..
Practice RS Agarwal Cerbal Book for Data
16-20) Data Interpretation Questions:
A graph is given and 5 ques were asked on it. This takes some time to calculate.
So solve this section at the last, But if you find it as easy then you can solve
in the middle itself.
21-25) A Puzzle para is given, very
time taking, complex Ques and 5 question asked on it. Go thru all simple and
complex Puzzle questions from RS Agarwal Verbal. Puzzle Test section in
it. 6 Kinds of Puzzles, Will be there practice it Guys!
26-30) Data Syllogism Questions: All
cats are dogs. Some cats are dogs etc. Practice only TIME Material (there
is a trick to solve this kind of ques very simple method, follow it). All these
questions came from Time Material only, Don't follow RS Agarwal Techniques given
for Data Syllogism. It is time taking. And it ruined me…this is most easy
questions and you should solve this first.
Then immediately English Question Paper. (40
Questions in 30 mins)
1-10) Two RC paras with five questions each
..Timetaking.. Do this at the last. Follow tips from Barrons GRE. Very
11-20) Sentence correction. Very easy
if u have basic grammar skills its enough.
21-30) Sentence completion with Meaningful,
Appropiate, Suitable. Practical solutions to be chosen from the 4 options..this
is some what easy but a man with good English vocabulary and grammar skills can
do this easily.
31-40) Theme Detection: 10 paras.each
followed by a question regarding the theme of that para. You have to select from
the 4 options given. For English. I didn't prepare from any book. As I had a
good knowledge of basic grammar, A decent vocabulary so I was able to do 30
Questions in 25 mins easily and last 5 mins I did 1 RC para.
Beware! Time management
is very crucial for infosys test, And very much needed in Aptitude Paper. So
practice ques, learn tricks to solve them easily.I didn't do well in my Aptitude
Paper. I struggled with the first five ques itself…10 mins, Went by, there
itself. And then I did figure sequence. I cleared easily solve 4 ques outta 5.
One question I cld nt answer…i guessed it..
Then I solved Sufficiency Ques. with some logical sense. I
don't know whether I got them right or not. Then I went to Puzzle test questions
(21-25ques) that para was very long for me. But since I practiced well from
Agarwal's Books. I was confident that I can do that, But it was a long para with
so many relationships (a bit difficult Ques., But I din know that it was a hard
one). And I cldnt solve ..
I wasted 20 mins here I think ..I cld solve only 3 outta 5.
and 2 I guessed it..
Then i went to data Syllogism. I learnt from RS Agarwal, But
it proved me too costly. It took 3 mins for each ques., And I had no time. At
all..Everything went wrong for me. And I really panicked ..and I cldnt even gaze
at DI questions. I guessed all those DI questions…I messed up my whole paper was
a very bad day for me.
So guys my advice is first do Data Syllogism questions
(practice only from TIME material. Be thorough with the questions in that
material), Then go for figure sequence ques., Then depending upon the complexity
of questions follow up. For English it was very easy for me but for those who
are poor in their English skills, You need to work
After 2hours,they announced the list of all short listed
candidates for interview round process. About 35students got short listed to go
to the next round. And my name was not there in the list. I was hoping for some
miracle to happen and I also had little hope becoz I did well in my English
paper. But god showed no mercy on me. God proved
that Talent wins. But not all guys were talented.
They did team work in the test (copying). So I wld also say
that god showed mercy on few. but not on me. I was Disappointed, Disgusted,
Frustrated. It was my dream to work for infy. It was a black day in my life. I
prepared well for the test. Following all the success stories I carried my
preparation well, But I cldnt manage the time smartly. I was slow while doing
the problems. So Guys Practice Hard and Don't Take
The Test Easily!
We were not revealed about our marks..nor about the cut-offs(as
they say)..they only announced the list of Short listed names. But I will tell u
what I have learnt from my Friends experiences and also taking account of my
knowledge for the Interview.
