1). Written test
2). HR round only

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 Round.

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 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 Sufficiency.

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 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 useful..

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.

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 hard guys..!

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.
