On 26th September we had infosys placement which is a pool drive consisting
of three colleges and there were about 700 members. I felt very nervous after
seeing the crowd. Our reporting time was 8.00 a.m and eligibility criteria was
68% candidates having less than 68% were not allowed to write written even if
You have 67.99% because one of my friend had 67.83% and was not allowed. We were
informed to have a pre-placement talk but due to some reason at 10 pm we were
sent to write the written test.the written test followed same pattern .two
papers were given to us
- Logical and Reasoning
First we were to solve analytical and reasoning paper consisting of 30
Question to be solved in 40 mints. Then these papers were collected and verbal
paper was given which contained 40 Question to be solved in 35 min and were
collected . The analytical and logical reasoning Question were from verbal and
non verbal reasoning by R.S.Agarwal. There were Question on pick the odd
figure out (very easy), 2 puzzles (very easy but time taking), syllogism (also
easy), data sufficiency very easy needs simple preparation from quantitative by
R.S.Agarwal), data interpretation (easy and lengthy .a table was given and 5
Question were asked on it)
Coming to the second paper

Thanks to my parents, teachers, god and placementpapers.net and freshersworld
with which it could have not been possible for me.Prepare well (give atleast
time of 2 weeks to get in infosys concentrate more on verbal because most of my
friends said they have done analytical extremely well and verbal not properly
done...finally manage your time properly which is only way u can answer all
questions attempt all since there was no negative marking).
All the Best. See you at infosys
