In verbal thr were 3 reading comprehensions..1 on architecture..n eupoean renaissance and othr on works of great scientists ..

The next day the inter views were thr..mine went on like below...
Reasoning Ability 1.Blood relation problem questions based on that
2.Puzzle(Rs Aggrawal Type) questions based on that
3.Picture series questions (a little tricky)
Tips for reasoning test
a) Syllogism- Best book for this topic is MK Pandey In Previous papers rules were not required. m But in our exam qus required use ofrules
like A+A=A.So learn them
b)No need of doing shakuntala devi puzzles for written test. But if u have covered RS Aggarwal then u can do it to enhance your analytical ability.I didn't.
C)For blood relation problem try doing by making family tree.Then it will be easier to answer all quns based on that problem with great
d)Picture series-Also do water images and mirror images
English Test 2 long passages for comprehension
7-8 small passages for theme detection
correct usage.4 sentences were given out of that 1 sentence was to b
chosen which was grammatically correct.
fill in the blank with appropriate sentence
Tips for english
it's only speed that matters.U should be fast in reading and
accurate in comprehension.
Final tips for written test
1.Visit at atleast 10-15 papers provided by students on fresherworld.com/placementweek.com
2.Cover all the topics mentioned by students on these site both for english as well as reasoning
3.Have confidence.Don't let expectations overcome your real strength
Interview It was on the same day after written test results were announced.
There were six panels.
1.Asking about hardware only
2.Asking all current affairs and general knowledge
a)chief minister of Rajasthan
b)how many inches in feet,cms in inches
3.other were normal hr.one of my friend was asked-who is chairman of dda bcoz her fathr works thr
4.mainly they check for confidence,presence of mind
a)qns like what is the temperature of room

5.Some panelist even asked simple puzzles
Mine was really cool.
Just 2-3 thing from my resume.about hobbies.why u did job(i had job experience).About family background.What ur sister plannnig for
future. Lastly any questions for me.
Main thing is your confidence and body language.
Most important be original,know yourself well.
For every thing u havedone in your past and going to do in future u should be able to give appropriate reasons.don't write copied or fake hobbies.that's only the key to success.Rest is all luck.

INFOSYS PAPER ON 12th MARCH 2008
Hello People!! first of all ....all the very best for ur Infy Exam.... Infy is my dream company ...n its the fourth company i have cracked after Satyam, TCS, and Accenture...feels like heaven!!!!!!!! anyways people who still dnt have a job...don't worry infy won't leave u disappointed..'coz it took a lot of people from my college
Carry ur marksheets they need ur xact marks of coll, X n XII n they verify those so be careful ur CV also has the consistent data
30 ques 40 min
Here u got to be 100% involved in the paper...don't assume the analytical part to be too simple 'cz so many ppl qualified...max. of my freinds were preparin for MBA n that's the reason of so many selections......
so regarding analytical
1.10 questions puzzle type-prepare analytical problem from Puzzle test R.S Aggarwal....but they are actually too simple n infy asks a bit higher than those...similar to those of Barrons 12th edition
2. 5 ques- syllogism...remember all rules from again R.S Aggarwal Verbal Non-Verbal
3. 5 ques-Conclusion, In Conclusion Questions dnt assume anything on ur own...just imagine u know nothing about the topic and all u know is what is written in the question and then read the options
4. 5 ques figure -odd one out -Well, I attepted figure questions the firt 'coz they were too easy n no need practising the500 questions in RS.
5. 5 ques DI- pie chart type...practice 4m RS Quanti
so that was analytical....u may go without ne preps also but with a fresh mind and then solve questions with all ur effort...but manage time well
40 ques 35 min
Now this depends 4m person 2 person...since i always loved English...this was very easy 4 me...
Now certain tips here
1. While chosing sentence correction questions read all the options simultaneously.. i mean read first 4 words of all options n then proceed with the options u feel may be right....prepositions, tenses is a must practice for ppl who confuse in these. There were8 ques
2. Reading comprehensions do at last n read the questions first n u wud b able to directly pick answers 4m passage
3. Fill in the balnks....answer elimination process wrks best
i don't remember more...but eliminating wrong answers and then guessin between the probable correct answers helps!!!
one thing remember more...
with plural sub. verb will not end with s
as- The girls dance
not The girls dances... and with sin. sub a pl verb will come
as- The girl dances n max of ques contains such errors... others are of prepostions like to,at etc.
key factors they see
1. Values inculcated in u.. so be well dressed and disciplined
5. Communication Skills
My Interview was taken by a Sikh person whi was quite aged n was damn Strict Well not boring u wid the entire conversation wot he asked me was
1. Countries and currencies(The imp ones)
2. Sates of India n Capitals..esp new ones
3. Pesident of India nad presidential candidates of USA
where i was trapped was wen i answered the president of India as -Pratibha Patil n yes u thought its absolutely correct no guys its a wrong statement I shud hav answered Mrs./Shrimati Pratibha Patil
so he replied "She is at the highest post of the country...shudn't u giv sum respect 2 her"n i thought i am blown...infy is known 4 values n i thought i am busted so i aplogised but he asked me 2 leave
N the entire time till results i was damn tensed.....it was my dream company but finally i was selected...... n one more thing Infy will give a second chance 2 those about whom they are doubtful....
so all the best hope u dnt need that second chance prepare well n come join infy soon
Hello people, Infy came for the closed campus in our college on 11th March. 2 other colleges were also invited for the same.
Well, the first step was the Presentation which lasted for about an hour. Here, they tell you about Infy, show some videoes, your package, where you will be placed and all. Better to clarify your all doubts here only as they can trap you in the interview using the same weapon.
Then we all were taken to the Test-rooms and given out Test papers.
Format was same,
30 Ques for non-verbal in 40 min.
40 Ques for english in 35 min.
The Non-verbal was a good paper, I was able to solve the first 20 ques in about first 20 minutes. The rest were a bit difficult but you can say that you get through if you work hard enough.
Then comes English : I don't why people hype this paper so much, the paper is quite easy. The only thing is the passages. They are very long and require one hell lot of a time. I got about 30 ques in 20 minutes so I was left with ample time for the passages.
However, If you got 30 ques, then consider yourself to be clear for the interview. The cutoff is around 23-24 for this section and about 15 for the non-verbal section.
Okay here are the stats upto this point:
Total students: Around 350.
Selected for Interview: 86 from 130 (Our college) and 76 from the other ones.
Then the interviews started.
Just remember one thing : If you got the test, you get the job.
Interviews are just a formality.
Okay here is mine:
Me: Good evening etc etc.
Int: Welcome, please close the door and have a seat.
Me: Thank you sir.
Int: Tell me about urself.
Me: Blah Blah Blah.......
Int: Okay, you are made the project manager for a single day job. U needhow many people ?
Me: About 6-7
Int: Okay, I give you 4. How will you manage ? (Gives paper) Tell the whole schedule.
Me: Blah Blah Blah.......
Int: 2 Puzzles, very simple. Was able to solve both of them.
Thats what happened in my interview. The HR was very very cool person. A lot of talk about my girlfriend and all. Also about my car and changing tyres etc.
You get the idea what its all about.
After the interview was over,we waited for about 2 hours, then the Results came.
Appeared for interview: 86 from ours and 76 from other.
Selected: 83 from our college and 56 from the other. Whoa ?!!!
We shouted and screamed like little kids and went out to the parking and danced ..... at 1 AM in the morning !
Then they came and told us that from now on you will be called as Infoscions and learn to spell the name correctly....
And that my friends, is the story of Infy.
Best of luck to all and Just be confident.
P.S. I didn't prepare anything for the test. Not even a single page. Aptitude is how's your mind built and English is what you read n newspapers everyday. Be calm and get the job. Remember this only.

Analytical & Logical reasoning
Friends I have not remembered the order of questions but I am telling the questions in such a order that I follow and I am sure that you also get advantage if you solve question in such order.
>Syllogism: (5 question) – Friends not only in Infosys but also in others first attempt this question. It is very easy to solve.
Question Pattern: Statement: All A is B. Some B is C.
You have no need to memories all the rule of R.S. Agrawal and even you have no need to draw vein Diagram to solve it, If you follow Time’s CAT materials. There is very simple rule in Time’s materials by which you can solve a syllogism with in 15 sec.
>Figure Series: (5 questions)- This is really very simple. For practice see Agrawal. But don’t waste too much time for it.
>Dice & Cube Problem:(5 questions)- In my apti the prob was like below:
A cube is given and is painted six side with six diff colors.
Red is adjacent of yellow and green.
Pink is opposite of yellow.
Brown is in the bottom face
Now Q:1)Which color is in the top face?
Q:2) Which color in the opposite face of Red?
But there may also come others pattern:
There is a cube and it is cut in 27/64/125 equals pieces of cube. Now two face is colored with black, two green, two red.
Q: No of cube which is painted three faces…No of Uncolored cube…..
Just see 3-5 Example from Agrwal It will come in ur hand.
>Puzzel: (5 questions) – Keep ur head cool for these question. I know puzzle makes everyone puzzeled. Read the question carefully draw the diagram, matrix and put the data one by one according to given information. I am sure that every one can solve it.
>Data Interpretation: (5 question) – A chart, graph, table will be given….and you have to solve some problem on statistics. It will too much time conserving section so do it at last…..and also follow the Option elimination process.
