PAPER ON 21ST JULY

APTITUDE:

All questions were of REASONING type -----30 questions(R.S Aggarwal reasoning book is more than enough)

here time management is very important

One question was time consuming for me and

that was from the puzzle test so be prepared wid all 7 models of PUZZLE TEST

we had DATA INTETERPRETATION and as i couldnt solve the 1st question properly i had to solve this

so dont waste time for the questions u cannot solve instead do the one which is easier n refer(r s aggarwal quantitative aptitude for this)

mostly bar charts,tables and pi charts are given(we were given a table)

5 questions were from FIGURES

we were given 3 figures followed by a '?'

in this the 1st two figures are have some relationship b/w them n based on that we hav to pick an answer figure which matches the 3rd figure

this was an easy one

5 questions were from SYLLOGISM

this was a bit different from wht i thought

they give 5 statements naming them a,b,c,d,e

then the answers choices were like 3 were paired eg:1)abe 2)dbe 3)aeb 4)dae

n we hav to find the pair which corretly matchs it if u do r.s aggarwal n r perfect wid all rules of syllogism i dont thing this would b tough

5 questions were of DATA SUFFICIENCY type

i felt this was easy

the questions i remember were from mensuration,length of train,ages of people

thts it in this part, we were not told the cutoff but i think its better to try for atleast 20 out of 30

VERBAL:

40 questions were there

i scored 24 marks

there were 2 RCs one was of 2 pages i attempted in the last 5 min but i did it well i believe

then we had

correction of sentences

fill in the blank with correct word

around 5to 6 passages for which we had go choose the correct summary

u hav to read these very fast

time management is very very imp. here

do not waste even one min looking here and there coz tht one min costs a loooooooot

finally i was called my name for HR n i was on the top of the world

i actually got thru wipro also but the joy of getting into a dream company is just great

one should definately experience it

HR:

One important thing is tht dont think tht its just HR

u should always remember tht there is one more hurdle to pass

in my 1st interview i hav learnt a lot "wht to do n wht not to do in the HR round" so if u hav not yet been placed then first analyze why tht has happened n try to improve on that coz there r huge oppertunities in this world

some way or the other u can get thru once u improve on ur flaws

so be confident and dont be jelous abt the ones who hav already got its a very bad thing

My HR round was coool

HR: come in swathi

me: yes sir

HR: cmon take ur seat

me: thank u sir (he had asked my resume and asked me to sign on it n also at few places on the application form)

HR: so ur father works as so n so

me: yes sir

HR: so where does he work

me: said

HR: do u hav ny bros or siss

me: said

HR: whr did he do his scholling

me: said (so be prepared wid ur family members' details also)

HR: so ur hobbies r travelling n music

me: yes sir

HR: whre hav u travelled

me: said a lot of places in India n i mentioned tht i like cold places

HR: k then which was the coldest place u saw

me: shillong in winter, then comes munnar

HR: so would there b snow fall fall

me: (me sadly)no sir yet to see such a place once

HR: do u like travelling coz of ur fathers transferable job

me: no sir even otherwise i never miss a chance to travel

HR: he gave me 3 topics and asked me to speak on 1

me: spoke abt supermarket (he was impressed)

HR: is there an incident in ur life whr u hav improved or had to changed ur work culture

me: said

HR: then she asked me abt my paper presentation(it was on face detection which comes under AI)

HR: how would u explain to a 7th class kid abt AI

me: i definately had an answer for tht so i answered n i think he was happy wid my answer

HR: k swathi there r 6 matchsticks here arrange them so that "each one touches one another"

me : i could make 5 to touch each other but not the 6th one

HR: then he asked me to make 4 equlateral triangles with those sticks

me: (the answer is to make a pyramid out of it)i almost did it then he sait to leave it aside

HR: k so wht sports do u play

me: i enjoy playing badminton and these days i hav started playing TT too n i njoy tht too

HR: do u hav ny questions

me: asked 2 questions n he had answered them very patiently

HR: k then u can leave now and cal the next person and ALL the Best

me: thank u sir

PAPER ON 17th JULY MJCET , HYDERABAD

Hello friends , this is harsha tumuluri, i would like to thank all the students who gave their suggestions at the frehshersworld.com....we had our infosys campus placement today at Muffakham jah college of engg and technology , it was an oncampus for us....

At first the pre placement talk will be given , please do listen to that carefully and if possible jot down some necessary points...i would rather suggest u to learn about the history of inofosys from the wikipedia.org or u can go to the infosys website....

After the preplacement talk we were asked to fill up the forms , the details of that will be given by the ppl over there...but do fill ur %'s correctly as they may later on verify and they even take the signature from u stating that all the data written on that form is true...

QUANTITATIVE EXAM: 30 questions 40 minutes
1) The quant paper was average , the first question was a shocker and it was a big paragraph in which a question related to the card game "flash"
was asked(sorry i dont remember)
2) Questions 5 to 10 were on the figures , 3 figures will be given and u have to spot the next figure.
U can get these questions from classifications chapter in R S Agarwal(non verbal reasoning)
3) Questions 10-15 were on data sufficiency(RS Agarwal section 1 verbal and non verbal)
4) Questions 15-20 were on data interpretation ,some pie chart was given and questions were asked on that.(data interpretation RS agarwal
quantitative aptitude book)
5) Questions 20-25 were on questions like u need to contruct a table and fill in the date to answer such question.(I would suggest u to do the
entire puzzle test chapter in the RS agarwal verbal n non verbal reasoning book perfectly)
6) Questions 25-30 were syllogisms, they were not the regular syllogism's like 2 statements will be given and u need to derive a conclusion , 6
statements were given and u need to find out the corect combination of the sentences which form a sense.
These type of problems can be found in RS agrawal(verbal n non verbal ssection 2 -logic) do all of them.

Blood relations,number ranking sequence ,series , cubes and dices are very important although they were not asked for us....

ENGLISH EXAM: 40 questions 30 mins
If ur basics are strong then no need to go through any books , yeah but if u want to have practice then try to solve the problems of wren and martin grammer n composition
(prepositions, tenses,direct and indirect speech,conditions statements)
2 RC's will be given , dont start with this , time will not be sufficient...
start with other sections like sentence corection(10 Q's) , fill with appropriate word (10 Q's), deriving conclusion from the passages(10 Q's).
some people wuld suggest to solve CAT problems for this but i personally feel that the questions given were not even close to the CAT standard....they were very simple.
But yeah u can go thru the correct usage of the tenses and prepostions from the CAT material...
We waited for 2 hrs and after that the results were declared , i was shortlisted..

HR INTERVIEW:
Try to stay very cool and calm , i know that it is very tough but just try to b e relaxed. Don't panic b4 the interviewer , just consider them as ur frends or consider him as a person who doesnt know anything and u are explaining to him!! Keep smiling and be confident , they look at ur confidence....They will have a look at ur resume and then ask questions from them , will give u a sheet of paper in which there will be 5 topics u have to choose one and speak on that topic , one real time problem will be given and how do u face that...and finally puzzles will be asked..
be prepared with topics like IT companies growth , which sectors in india are considered to develop in the next few years....If u have organized any event then they will ask u about that event n the difficulties faced in that event and how did u overcome it?? few puzzles will be given like

1)how can u make 5 one rupee coins to touch each other...every coin shud touch the other 4 coins...
2) U are given a 3 containers 20 liters , 5 liters and 3 liters and the 20 litre can is full of milk , u need to get 4 liters of milk somehow by using all the containers..
3) 6 match sticks will be given u need to contruct a structure such that it has 4 equilateral triangles...ans is contruct a pyramid with base as triangle

Guys be careful about ur hobbies , one of my frends said that his hobby was volleyball and immediately the HR person asked doubts like what is the weight of the ball , dimentions of the court and height of net etc.....the interviewer is just trying to annoy u by asking these questions , dont panic and say confidently that u dont know!
or else u learn every thing about ur hobbies....I am a fan of tennis so b4 going to the interview i learned that weight of the tennis ball is 57g and height of the net is 36 inches in the middle and 42 at the ends , the different courts and etc....
go to wikipedia.org to find out more information

PAPER ON 26th JUNE AT HYDERABAD

hi, This isVAMSI iam from biomedical engg,JBIT,i got selected for infosys,here is the whole test paper.There will be two rounds one is the written test and the other is HR.In written test thr will be two sections:

1.General aptitude
2.Verbal

the aptitude section is given 40 min to solve and the verbal is given 30 min. if u prepare well for the exam u can solve aptitude section in less than 40 min

1.In general aptitude the first q is on cubes,the q goes like:There is a cube of size 15cm and is cut equally into smaller cubes of 3cm each and is painted with red ,yellow and green on opposite sides based on these answer the following q
(1)how many number of cubes will be there with no sides painted??
(2)how many number of cubes will be there with 1 side painted???
(3)how many number of cubes will be there with 2 sides painted
(4)how many number of cubes will be there with 3 different colours painted on there sides?and one mre q i couldnt rememberbut it was an easy one,i solved it in less than 2min.

2.this is to find the missing figure.one can solve this easily by jst looking at it.its very easy.
3.this one is on data sufficiency.even this is easy,.concentrate on SI,CI,profit and loss,geometry.
4.DI.this is the difficult section ive come across..do this at last.the q goes like ,there is an hydropower station ,the water is stored in the reservoir and is usedto run the turbines ,the water in it is drained bewen 5pm and 8pm andreplenished between 5am to 10am ,the next day and the content in it is measured at 11am.and below a tabular column is given with some unknown parameters a,b,c,d,e,f,g.we need to find them.it si very time consuming

5.this one is a puzzle..u find this type of problems in VERBAL AND NONVERBAL REASONING BY RS AGARWAL..go through "puzzle test" exercise in it.this one is also easy but a bit tricky
6.this one is based on syllogisms...goin through syllogsm exercise in RS agarwal jst gives u an idea on how to solve,but the one u get in infosys exam are pretty different from those in RSagarwal ,there is no necessity to remember those 9 rules dont waste time by doin so..the model which we came across in the exam is like:

they will give u five statements a,b,c,d,e. and below 4 options each option consists of three statements like abc or adc or bcd .we need to find the option basing on the condition that the last statement should be derived form first two.even this section is easy..

2. Verbal...this section is very easy and needs no kind of preparation.u can do it if u r good at grammar..

next is HR..they jst see how u r responding,ur communication skills.most of the interviewers asked abt situational q and puzzles...it doesnt matter whether u solve it or not..but don give up keep on trying....if u get a good score in written test ur chance of gettin into infy wll b high.

HOPE,THIS PAPER WILL HELP U..........

PAPER ON 22nd MAY AT VISAKHAPATNAM

hi all frehsers, n engineers....recently infosys visited our campus ( ANITS, Visakhapatnam) on 22nd may 2007.233 candidates appeared only from our coll. and at the end 99 made through.

The written exam pattern is completely changed it consists of two sections :
---Reasoning
---Verbal ability

In Reasoning all over 30questions were asked for 35minutes
1st five questions are of "Number Ranking and sequencing"

few questions which i remember:
1. IF Ram's rank from the beginning is 10th in a classroom of students and ranks 12th from the last. how many students are there in the classroom.
ANS. 9 students before ram +ram+ 11 students from end==== 9+1+11=21
similarly some models of above..

2. IF therre are 31 students in a classroom and if ram stands 13th from beginning ,wat is his rank from the end.?

3. IF Ram ranks 12th from beginning and Shyam ranks 11th from end . and if Ram and Shyam exchange their places. then Shyam's rank from end is 15th from end . wat is the rank of Ram from the beginning now?

4.& 5. similar model.
6----10 questions were based on missing figures ,
11----15 were based on DATA SUFFICENCY (easy ones only)
16--20 were based on data interpretation
A pie chart which gives the distribution of the "times group magazine"it consists of two cirlces ,the incircle gives the disturbution of one newspaper "times of india" and the outcirlce gives the distribution of " indiatimes.com" on same parameters.......
5 questions were asked on this piechart
doesnt need much of calculations...

21--25 seating arrangemnt of 11 students A,B,C,D,E.F,G,H,I,J,K. ( 4 CONDITIONS WERE GIVEN LIKE)
D ,who sits to immeidite left of E,is 2nd to the left of C.

26----30 "SYLLOGISMS" we have to draw the conclusion of two statements which are logically connected,,,it is based on distribution lists of subject and predicate in both statements,..verify " logical reasonin g by r s agarwal,or time material of reasoning"
example: some cats are dogs.
all dogs are pigs.
the conlcusion for this is " some pigs are cats"

the second paper is " VERBAL; ABILITY"----OBJECTIVE--40MIN
1---5 READING COMPREHENSION
5--10 READING COMPREHENSION( ONE EASY ONE TOUGH)
11---20 Find the correct statement from the options( grammer part jjust go through all ur basics tenses , prepostions)
21 ---25 a statement is given where the underlined phrase or line has to be corrected
we have to find the right choice from the options;<>
26---30 fill in the blanks with the right option there again tenses ,prepostions,,conjunctions,,
30---40 logical reasoning where a certain situation is given we have to find the conclusion of it or the assumption of the author...
in verbal ability time management is important ...

ALL THE BEST to be INFOSCIANS

choose the one which can be directly concluded from the passage.These were quite easy.I suggest you try these with a calm mind..
