Company Name: L&T Infotech.
Job Interview, Written Test.
L&T info tech conducted a placement procedure for freshers in the Thadomal
College , Bandra , Mumbai on the 18th & 19th, January 2011.
Criteria (58% with not more then 2 dead/live credits & aggregates should be 60%+
at the end of 8th semester)
The procedure consisted of 3 rounds spread over 2 days (initially it was
supposed 2 b having four rounds consisting f separate technical and
HR interviews but then 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:
(1) Quantitative (2) logical reasoning (3) English. with sectional
cut-off for each section.
(1) Quantitative (30 questions for 30 marks):
References R. S. Aggarwal book 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):
References 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) ,syllogisms (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 to do in at least 20 questions from each of the 3 parts
mentioned above perfectly and den if time permits go for the remaining
10questions from each part but newer make sure you mark all the answers with
random options in case you don't know the answers (since there is no negative
Then they gave the selected candidates a pre-placement talk 30-45 minutes
ROUND2: (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 way the 1st 1 to talk in the
group , preferably b 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
other topics i heard of were " 3 things you would like to take with you on a
trip to moon" , "advertisements" , " role model from Bellwood/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
(den he was amused by our final year project so he had a major lot of questions
based on it)
hr:- as you know the government is trying 2 construct subways , bridges,
flyovers, etc in Mumbai. Why do you think everything attempt is failing
miserably when it comes 2 the stipulated time in which it should be completed?
me :- answered
hr :- y do u want 2 switch over from ur 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 you sir.
hr :- Thank you sir!
Bottom-line Suggestion 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 project. Then appreciate that and show the excitement of getting the
results were declared on the 19th and they selected 42 people from around 125
students by the placement procedure from my college. I being 1 of them!!
All the best.
