Latest L&T Infotech Fresher Job Interview Paper Pattern (Mumbai): 19th, January 2011

Company Name: L&T Infotech.
Type: Fresher, Job Interview, Written Test.

Hello friends.
L&T info tech conducted a placement procedure for fresher in the Thadomal College , Bandra , Mumbai on the 18th & 19th, January,2011.
Criteria (58% with not more den 2 dead/live kt’s & Agg. should be 60%+ at the end of 8th semester).
The procedure consisted of 3 rounds spread over 2 days (Initially it was supposed to be having four rounds consisting f separate technical and HR interviews but den i was reduced to just 1 common interview).

Round 1: (Aptitude Test)

Paper had 90 questions [1 question for 1 mark with no negative marking] time allotted was 90 minutes. The L&T people conducted the test and we had 3 different sets so that no copying takes place.

The paper was divided into 3 sections:

  • Quantitative
  • Logical Reasoning.
  • English with sectional cut-off for each section.

1. Quantitative: (30 Questions for 30 marks)

Refer R. S. AGARWAL (Quantitative Aptitude) questions were asked from chapters on percentages , profit loss, time & distance , time and work, simple interest , compound interest , probability ,arithmetic & geometric progression,etc. Try to solve at least 17-20 problems from this section completely before moving on to the next section.

2. Logical Reasoning: (30 Questions for 30 marks)

Refer R. S. Aggarwal (Verbal and Non-verbal reasoning book) questions. A problem from the chapter puzzles (similar type of sum) for 5-6 marks ,venn diagrams(4-5 problems) ,syllogism (section 2: chaper1- logic) 5-7 marks + passages(3-4 lines) given along with 2 consequences from which you have 2 select the logically correct consequence(consequence1 alone , consequence 2 alone, both ,neither being the options).

3. English (30 marks 30 questions)

(You can refer objective English, by R. S. Aggarwal, but clearing this section highly depends on your vocabulary) 4-5 synonyms , 5-6 questions on changing the underlined word or phrase with one of the four options, sentence correction (sentence is divided into 3 parts from which we have 2 choose 1 part which is not grammatically right) , 1 reading comprehension (lengthy- suggested to b done in the end) 5 questions on d passage , 5-6 fill in the blanks with correct set of words. I suggest you try do in at least 20 questions from each of the 3 parts mentioned above perfectly and then if time permits go for the remaining 10 questions from each part but now you make sure you mark all the answers with random options in case you don't know the answers (since there is no negative marking) den they gave the selected candidates a pre-placement talk 30-45 minutes.

Round 2: (Group Discussion)

This is also an elimination Round (around 40% elimination from each group). They give you 2-3 minutes to write down the points on a piece of paper then the GD goes on for around 10-15 minutes. Try not the be the 1st one to talk in the group , preferably be the 2nd or the 3rd person. Don't start talking late too that's why more risky then going 1st and while speaking your point never look at the paper on which you have written that point and read always be confident.
My group got the topic "active participation of students in politics" some order topics i heard of were " 3 things you would like to take with you on a trip to moon" , "advertisements" , " role model from bollwood/Hollywood and why?" ,"should the voting age b decreased/increased from 18" , "sports/Olympics " , etc.

Round 3: (Interview)

Even this is an elimination round questions i was asked were:

hr:- Tell me something about yourself?
me :- Answered
(Then he was amused by our final year project so he had a major lot of questions based on it)
after that
hr:- As you know the government is trying to construct subways , bridges, flyovers, etc in Mumbai. Why do you think environment attempt is failing miserably when it comes to the stipulated time in which it shod b completed?
me :- Answered
hr :- Why do you want to switch over from your branch to the IT sector?
me :- Answered.
hr :- Do u have any questions for me?
me :- sir , what are the prerequisites for me that i should try and achieve before joining L& T ?
hr :- Nothing specific. You will be trained in the training period of 2 months.
me : - Ok, thank u sir.
hr :- Thank you.

Bottom-line is: Be prepared with your final year project , things you have mentioned in your resume , visit company site and get some company information.
Look happy even if you are not, be confident , keep smiling , respect /greet the HR official, and if the hr suggests you nothing regarding your projct,etc then appreciate that and show the excitement of getting the suggestion). Results were declared on the 19th and they selected 42 people from around 125 students by the placement procedure from my college i being one of them.
All The Best.
