									INFOSYS PAPER ON 22nd FEBRUARY AT KOLKATA

Test Location: TICT Rajarhat AndTechno   India Saltlake

Hi,friends this is rajdeep banerjee from netaji subhash engineering college,kolkata. here am going to
describe my experience in INFOSYS CAMPUS RECRUITMENT DRIVE that was held on 22nd of feb
2008...n i was one of the lucky ones to get selected...

any way first of all friends i wud like to say that don't be tensed about infosys ..bcoz i personaly think
that there on-campus recruitment procedure is easier than that of other companies...

Our aptitude test was held in Rajarhat technoindia college...we arrived there at 8a.m from 9-15 the
p.p.t(pre-placement talk)started..the person from infosys conducting the ppt was very jolly n smart ..he
told us abt infy..its projects n all ...he also asked everyone to say thelogo color of infy ..n told usthat
wh'wud give the right answer wud definitely get worth Rs.500...

anyway none of us answered correctly...friends the color is "PANTON 285C"..then we wereasked to go
to respective rooms to sit for aptitude test...friendsits consists of two parts one is verbal reasoning n
logical ,the other is english..anyway friends be prepared 4 the apti..u can follow verbal n non-verbal
reasoning by r.s.agarwal..nu can follow the recent mba entrance papers too...it was easy..the puzzles n
quantative reasoning given was not at all difficult..if u ave theability to solve the puzzles ,,then u can do
the trick...now in english my advice is to solve cat papers or other mba papers..there were two passages
n u have to answer from those..also others were correcting sentence structure..etc..but no synonym or
antonym was given i think it's not required 4 infy to practise those stuffs..if u r good in english ..then
the the paper was dump easy 4 u..as far as i can remember i correctly answer each one..totally 70 marks
apti it was..n 40 marks was 4 english...so practiseit ...anyway timemight be the factor of someone..there
was no negaive markng...then the result wasdeclared n i was there...we all then went to Techno India
,Saltlake...honestly speaking i was a bit nervous at that time..though i desparately wanted Infy..4 some
reason ....

note that in Infy there's no technical interview...only H.R. interview is there....

when my turn came..i was absolutely tensed.. really my palms were sweating n my heart beatwas
growing fast...then i entered. .n hereis the conversation....

Me: Good Evening mam,
Madam :thank u rajdeep ..pls be seated..
Me: thank u..(n sat with a smile on my lips..)
Madam: here i see u have passed from mahesh sri ramakrishna ashram..is it a branch of belur math..?
Me: actually it's not directly connected to it..bt it's connected to other missions..n exlained plainly..
Madam: tell me abt yourself.... my god that was my question i was very much prepared..told about my
qualities..,my participationin cultural progarmmes..how i worked as a team..n how i inspired
others..myhobbies at last...frnd don't sayur c.v ..say abt urself ...think about urself ..ur achievements...n
say everything good abt urself...
Madam: do u like to work as a team member or a team leader..??
me: it's always been a pleasure to be a part of the team...n if i can be leader then it'll be cherry over
cake...n explained how i worked in local book fair...etc...friends just try to convince them that u r in a
position to be a part of the company..uhave the dedicated soul ...etc ...
Madam: have u evergot angry...
Me: don't try to fool, them n be honest..alsogive an example how uot angry at a particular situation n
for that reason u did a better job..so that negativity of u 'll reflet ur positive personality..that's the trick...
Madam: do u read story books..ur fav author...
Me: rabindranath tagore...

that was all at last she sighned me a paper nthanked me..irepliedmy thanks...don't shake ur
hand..unlessthe interviewer shakes..anyway fortunately i wasnot asked puzzles...bt friends my advice is
to get ready 4 the puzzles..those cud be asked any time...

then after 2 hrs of waiting our name was declared..n i was one of thelucky ones...frm our stream(cse)10
were selected... that's all over..absolutely i was very happy.... that'sit..my friendsgetting infy is not the
toughest job...u have to believeurself...try to focus on what u r saying..n be positive ..don't show over-
smartness ....best of luck to all of the future INFOSCIONS.....
HOPE THIS WILL HELP U TOREACH UR GOAL...TAHNK U.

Hi friends..this is Ranjan Prakash…BMAS Engineering College, Agra…EC Branch...I attended
Infosys on pool campus in HCST, Mathura....and I got through it.....finally....but first of all I wud like to
thank freshers world that has helped me a lot to go through the pattern.......there were around 800
students appeared for written and around 120 selected out of which 90 made it for HR…(12 cleared
written n 8 got through HR from BMAS Engg. College, Agra) and by gods grace i was one among
them...The very important thing to crack any campus is just b honest to ur self ...b confident never b
over confident. it takes u away...and most imp.....just believe in ur self...u r the one who can do the
best…

I M REALLY THANKFUL TO MY PARENTS...FRIENDS WHO HAV BELIEF ON ME...

Here is the pattern dear friends :::
1.Logical reasoning(30 question) 40 MIN.
2.English section(40 question) 30 MIN.

The logical section consisted of the following question....
1.2 puzzle tests of 10 marks… (Just go through QUESTION its more than enough.....)
2.5 series figure question of 5 marks (go through QUESTION...NON VERBAL SECTION more than
enough
3.5 questions on data sufficiency (again prefer question)
4.5 question on logical reasoning or syllogism... (Go through question also go through the the cat
material).
5. Data interpretation of 5 question (Just go through the question aptitude book......it is best as I
preferred the same)

English section....... it is as follows
1. 2 paragraphs based questions very easy ( try to do it in last minutes as it is very easy u have to just
go through it once it is of total 10 marks )
2. Correction of underlined sentence very minor difference…5 question
3. Theme detection 5 question
4. Choose the correct sentence of 5 marks, and
5. Fill in the blanks (using correct sentence…from options given…). for verbal section I must say that
prepare the basic things like tense, preposition , speeches voices etc...............u can also go for the cat
study material.....or prefer wren n martin.........

Written test was ok and the results were around 5 pm and I went through... After that HR interviews
started n results were also declared college wise…

HR INTERVIEW

FOR HR I WUD SAY THAT DNT PREPARE FOR ANYTHING ELSE BUT PREPARE FOR
URSELF I MEAN KNOW UR SELF.......so that u can reply every thing confidently...one more thing
that u should go for puzzles that they may ask in HR... One more thing that u must have all details n
explanations bout ur resume…so also prepare for this part…

INFOSYS PAPER ON 22nd FEBRUARY 2008
Hi, I am Saion Chakrabarti from Meghnad Saha Institute of Technology(TECHNO GROUP) and
participated in the Campus recruitment drive by Infosys at Techno India .
The campus recruitment drive consisted of three parts:
i>a ppt presentation
ii>Written test
iii>HR interview
The Infosys written test consisted of two parts:
1>Arithmetic and Logical reasoning
2>English
1>ARITHMETIC AND LOGICAL REASONING
1.A cube of 10 cm side was painted with a black border of width 1 cm on all its sides…the rest of the
part on the surface of the cube was painted blue…now the cube was cut into 1000 parts…
a>how many cubes were uncoloured{options were given}
nd likewise questions followed{sorry am not able to remember thm}
2.Figure out the odd figure: simple ones {refer:RS AGGARWAL ,non-verbal
reasoning,chapter:SERIES,yeah the pictorial ones}
3.a table consisting of the production of rice nd wheat from 1986 to 1996 was given nd questions
followed like:
a>ratio of rice production in the year 1989 between the North zone and the west zone.
b>find the max. percentage increase in wheat production compared to previous year. Nd likewise
questions followed.
4.The question was a PUZZLE….it was something of the genre:-“There r 6 houses on both sides of a
road.3 in each row.House A is of green colour nd is beside house F which is just opposite to B……..”
now questions followed like: which house is the yellow house,which house is located in the middle nd
so on..{Practising the the first two chapters on PUZZLES frm RS AGGARWAL is more than needed}
5.The questions were on syllogism.we had to find out which were logically correct.{My suggestion is
not to mug up those laws or even go for those venn diagrams..just go by ur gut feeling nd use common
sense}
2>ENGLISH
1.There were two big paragraphs,nd questions were asked from them..try them at last bcause they r
easy but time consuming.
2.rest were on basic grammar like sentence correction,choosing the right option tht makes the sentence
grammatically correct nd so on…{wht I feel is that U don‟t need to practice this section,it‟s just a test
of the English tht u hve learnt frm ur nursery classes}
HR INTERVIEW
Well 52 students frm our college cleared the aptitude test..nd the HR was held soon after.
 Heres an excerpt of my Interview:
ME: May I come in Sir.
INTERVIEWER: yeah Saion come in nd sit down.
Now tell me something about urself, ur background etc.
ME: said.
INTERVIEWER: so U were into a lot of xtra curricular activities.wht were u into?
ME :sports ..specially long jump nd 100 m nd did a lot of stage-acting at inter-school level.
INTERVIEWER: so how many minutes u used to take to run 100m.
ME: around 11sec.
INTERVIEWER: wow,thts good u could easily go for the Asian record,by the way whts the Asian
record?
ME: well,the world record is about 9.74 sec,but sorry sir I don‟t remember the Asian record.
INTERVIEWER: wht abt the acting?
 ME: sir it was nothing much serious,it was more pomp than acting,we had a dramatic club in school nd
we enacted topics tht were given to us nd we also did a play called “Saving Private Gyan” whch was a
spoof on “Saving Private Ryan”
INTERVIEWER: U also said tht u love reading books,wht was the last book tht u read?
ME: all quiet on the western front.
INTERVIEWER: aaaah,All Quiet on The Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque…so is it on World
War 1 or World War 2?
Me: World War 1 sir!!
Interviewer: so how does the book start.
Me: said
INTERVIEWER: does it start that way??or does it start “he had fallen forward and lay on the Earth as
though sleeping…”
ME: it‟s the last line sir.{with a smile}
INTERVIEWER: Ok,u have read it.Now I have a small problem for U..say if u take a gas balloon to
moon wht will happen to it?
ME: since theres no atmosphere or air in moon the balloon is not going to rise,but since theres
gravity,less than tht compared to Earth, the balloon will start falling at a brisk pace compared to earth.
Interviewer: If theres no air or pressure on moon then why will the ballon not keep on xpanding?
 ME :then the membrane of the balloon will burst
INTERVIEWER: let it burst.. why will it not burst? {nd an argument followed}
INTERVIEWER: ok leave the balloon..U come frm a civil engineering background,why do u want to
come to the IT sector?
ME: gave a short speech whch I had prepared with things like “who doesn‟t want to join Infosys”…..”I
want to b a part of the IT revolution tht has placed India back on the world map as a economy” nd so
on..
INTERVIEWER :is the IT industry still growing as it used to b?
ME: No,everything is not good in the IT sector bcause of the rising rupee but every industry has its ups
nd downs nd I believe tht the IT industry will b able to triumph over the difficulties.
 INTERVIEWER: so tell me wht subjects did u have?
ME: said
INTERVIEWER: so whats a rebar?
ME: the iron rods used in RCC r called rebars.
INTERVIEWER: whts the full form
ME: reinforcement bars
INTERVIEWER: why do asbestos sheets have a wavy structure?.
ME: said
INTERVIEWER: say u were to find out how many razors r used in India ,what will u do?
ME: Iwill send some ppl to the razor factories nd get the data of how many razors they r selling
INTERVIEWER: say if they don‟t provide the data.
ME: hmm..then I will hve to conduct a survey by taking a small sample space nd how many razors r
being used nd the population of tht area..now I multiply it by the total population nd get an estimated
data by taking into consideration various socio-economic factors J{he he}
INTERVIEWER :any other way u cud do it?
ME: I don‟t think it could be done in any other way in a vast country like India .
INTERVIEWER: ok correct this form nd sign it.{I wrote same as above in my permanent address
section}…now as I was correcting he asked me to name some African countries simultaneously while
correcting the form….I started with Nigeria,Kenya….nd ended with Zaire nd Zimbabwe.
INTERVIEWER: wht was the previous name of Zimbabwe ?
Me: Rhodesia
Interviewer: of Zaire ?
ME: Tanganika J
Interviewer.. TANGANAIKA…r u sure…??
ME: No,sir tht was a guess.{for the ignorants like me:the answer is Congo }
Now he gave me a puzzle of some container containing 3 litres of water nd another 5 litres of
water..which I was unable to solve but showed a lot of zeal to solve J
Now he started asking me questions on my school..like wht was the motto of ur school{whch I didn‟t
remember} nd so on.
And then he asked me wht newspaper do I read..nd cite some news of the last few days…nd then we
had a discussion on the mob brutality in Asansol.
Last question was:
INTERVIEWER: how was the English paper ?
ME: Easy sir!!
Interviewer: So wht do u mean by “cold shouldering a person”
ME: Ignoring a person.
Interviewer: OK,Best of Luck Saion.
ME: Thank U sir.

Now there was long wait of 4hrs till our results were declared…about 34 from our college got
selected{including me of course}..nd we were asked to get a passport,nd not get a backlog nd not get
involved in some criminal offence before joining Infosys.
OK thts it…. best of luck to everybody..nd thnks for going through this long article.{whch also
improved my typing speed}.
INFOSYS PAPER ON 26th FEBRUARY 2008
Hello friends!! I am Ankit Dikshit of MIET, Meerut . Infosys, the best IT company visited the campus
of GLA, Mathura on 26th feb, 2008. Five colleges including GLA, Mathura as a host, MIET, Meerut,
KIT Kanpur, BSA Mathura n one more collge. I didn‟t remember the name were invited for pool
campus with their approximately 1000 candidates.

The criteria for eligibly of the candidates was 60% through out ( at least 60% in 10th, 12th and Btech
agg.). Now I m sharing u my experiences wid infy initialising it with my feeling when I was not
selected in the company visited MIET on 10th, I guess.

Just Don‟t Forget:
1. Believing ur God and urself is best key for success
2. Visiting Freshersworld, as I m really thankful to it for reencrypting my success story.
3. Spend proper time on resume making, collecting correct information about the selection procedure of
the company, as sometimes u might of following old patterns of the company.
4. I always say “ It only depends on your single Good Day, Luck Matters Alott!!”
We encountered with two rounds at infy, first was written and second HR Round. Written round is
basically a rejection round, as only 73 out of 1000 were selected in written, just 7.3% my frn. While
HR is the selection round, have selected 60 (50 from MIET, yippy!!!) and even give second chance to
remaining 13 those who did not perform well in first HR (acc. To infy ).

Round#1: Written (two sections logical reasoning: ques: 30, time: 40 min
And verbal reasoning(english): ques; 40, time: 35 min.)
Books: RS Aggarwal Verbal Non Verbal, RS Agg. Apti for Data Interpretaion only, GMAT Barron 10th
edition, for English section
Not much requirement of shakuntala devi for written, it may sometimes be asked in HR only.

Subjects: Logical Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning,
Topics:
Puzzles: In this paper of infy, I encountered with two puzzles in written
Question 1-5. there were 4 girls, A, B, C, D. they decided to divide any of the gift in 4 equal parts. So
when uncle of A, bring some cookies for A, she divided them in four equal parts. Then she decided to
eat her share, as she was hungry that time. Just after that, B arrives, then she divided the remaining
cookies in four equal parts. Then A, B decided to eat their shares, By keeping C and Ds share. After
that c arrives n divided that remaining share, again into four parts and eaten their respective shares.
Finally wen D arrives, n divided it into four parts and d gets 3 cookies.
From this puzzle we get five questions like how many cookies A‟s uncle brought? Etc.
5 more questions from Another puzzle which was on relation, point to remember is they provide the
information in question directly, but many frnz of mine got confused tht how it could b happen?. For
example, A, B, C is engineer, doctor and teacher respectively. A‟s wife is (bla, bla, bla), so look the
word respectively, which was proven excellent for my selection.(practice chapter 6, puzzle test of RS
Agg, v-nv reasoning )
Five questions on data interpretation pie chat which was on import and export, two pie charts were
given (practice RSA Apti, DI section)
5 questions on Syllogism, really a scoring and easy section don‟t ever think of not practising syllogism.
Just go though nine rules of solving these questions from RSA verbal non verbal.
5 questions from data sufficiency, I donno from where to prepare it, but prepare this section also, if u
can…this was my worst attempt.
5 questions from series (picture series), practice It from chapter 1, part 2, of RSA verbal non verbal. It
was my best attempt, my funda was just compare the step by step changes in the given figure and put ur
logic.
Believe me the sections of the reasoning part was easy, u have to be serious for infy‟s written coz,
written is the round, wher they requires the leat.
Now for verbal section u have to make ur basic grammar strong, attempt the given passages in the end.
They are time consuming. I found ten questions on two passages, while 10 questions on sentence
correction where you have to go through barron, you should an idea of parallism, clauses, tenses and
above average vocabulary.
10 questions on fill in the blanks, sinlge question on vocab, 5 questions on theme detection (the level
was gud, no use of reading the chapter given in RSA, just read Barron for this also).

After this written, I been to my frnz (nigam) place in vrandaban, where I came to know that my written
is clear.

Here, I m sharing my tête-à-tête with HR,
Me: may I come in sir?
Hr: yes, please.
(I move inside and simply sit on chair bindass!!)
Hr: have I asked u to sit?
Me: sorry, sir, my faux pas (really apologize for my this negative decorum and stand on my position)
Hr: can I have ur resume plz?
Me: sure sir!
Hr: so, u seems to be a guy with leadership quality, do u believe in compromises?
(He was going through my resume)
Me; yes sir
Hr: can u tell me any of the instance where your compromises take over your leadership?
Me: sir, I was on stage…..blablabla….
Hr: ok, mr ankit tell me about urself (very common question)
Me: I m Ankit Dikshit……bla bla bla…
Hr: National Level Table tennis player?? (design ur resume in the manner u want hr to ask question
from) what was the round u attended at national level?
Me: sir, we reached upto quarter finals…blab la bla…
Hr: (in continuation in asking me questions from my resume) What‟s this band performed live at sahara
samay nationals?
Me: actually sir, we are having “tatva‟ the first rock band of Meerut ….bla bla bla…. (This was the
point I was waiting to be asked by him, and after this I simply hold him while telling him all of my
assets like innovative, confident, believes in unity and team work, my experiences etc..
This was the time when I noticed him smiling…seems to be that I was satisfied with what I have
written in my resume is true)
Hr: so Ankit, r u from UP?
Me; yes sir!
Hr: UP is having a great importance in Indian politics, can u name any five prime ministers from UP?
Me: yes sir, I can …
They are pandit Jawahar lal Nehru, indira Gandhi, Rajeev Gandhi, atal bihari Vajpayee, ……..
Hr: ( I was in between) u belongs to Meerut …
Me: ( interrupting him) n of course ch. Charan singh (he smiles), vp singh, chandrashekhar…
Hr: (smiling) great mr Ankit, u seems to be an intelligent guy, I m impressed!
(he raised my confidence level)
(during these hr interview we found that infy was focusing by questioning on ur general knowledge and
current affairs)
Hr: u know u are the first candidate out of seven, yet. To answer this question. And last candidate said “
sorry sir, I don‟t have any interest in politics” what u say, about Him?
Me; no comments sir, its his angle of observations, I cant say any thing about him.
Hr: which is the smallest country of the world?
Me; its Vatican city sir.
Hr: interesting, which movie u have watched, last?
Me: (yaar here I was confused, donno wht was the last, even I could answer here my favourite movie or
movie which was clicked in my mind, but believe me no movie in my mind, as he changes my area of
thinking with a nick of second, I think thts y I was answer less)
HR: have u seen “ chak de india ”?
Me; (replied with confidence) yes sir, even its my favourite movie (it was my jabardast wapasi in the
game called HR interview)
Hr: which was ur favourite scene?
Me; when Shahrukh khan says “ pehli baar kisi gore ko tiranga lehrate hue dekh raha hu” (I replied in
hindi only) and also the team spirit of the players and also the compromise which we were talking
initially, chautala, the tiny girl from Haryana passes the ball to preeti sabarwal and said “ dikha de uss
londe ko”, when both of them were having same number of goals through out thw world cup, this
shows the spirit of working for the nation and same law is glimpsed when u r working for your
company like infy, if I clear the interview, you have to put ur ego aside n have to work in team with
compromises and hardwork” And that‟s why “chak de india ” is my favourite movie
(here I showed him, I like those qualities and follow those qualities which are best for any of the
company)
Hr; (smile) fine Ankit, you can go now!
Me: nice meeting sir!!
So frns, finally after cross-fingered wait of 3 hours we came to know, that 50 including me from MIET
are infosian, now.
We have had a meeting with HR team of infy wher they told us noms and conditions etc.
So guys!!! Belief in God and in urself, is the key for success.

Heartily wishes to u frnz!!!
Cu at infy!

INFOSYS PAPER ON 7th FEBRUARY 2008
Test Location : Lovely Professional University,
Jallandhar Posted By : Rupinder Pal Singh

Hello everyone... no wasting time on beating about the bush... coming to point, the aptitude paper of
Infosys IT sector was NOT tough, the English section WAS.. almost everyone whom i talked after the
exam was telling me that apti paper , they cud do. but no one was sure bout english paper the pattern
was the one followed more recently in december 2007 and jan feb 2008
they gave 30 ques of apti in 40 mins and 40 ques of eng in 30 mins
apti paper :
ques no 1 - 5
ques was regarding some sign language, then a sentence was to be translated in that language, very
easy ques, no prep for this required
ques no6 - 10
sylloligsm based but not the one given in R.S . aggarwal reasoning book.. but practice those questions
of logic from this book n u ll be able to solve those ques
ques no 11 -15
puzzle based on who teaches which subject and on which day ... relatively tough compared to one
given in RS ( i assume everybody is preparing from this book, coz i did and i can say its enough for this
test)
ques no 16-20
ques on pie chart i recommend , do this one first.. coz its very easy mayb lenghty but in the end u get
the accurate result, which is required to build confidence at start of paper..
PS - there is hardly any long calculation involved, just keep on writing percentages like 40% of 30% of
3/12... now this is just a small example, but i hope u got the idea... 300 ;-)
for pie chart ques, do atmost 5 ques from RS but solve each step of those 5 ques and u will master them
ques no 21 -25
ques of data sufficency do RS , that will be sufficent...
ques no 26-30
choose the next figure, practice atleast 20 to 40 from RS reasoning, understand the logic by reading the
answers to those questions
The order of questions may vary coz i got the time to write all this after a long gap and i dont remember
the sequence....coming to english paper.... ques no 1-5 and ques 6 -10
comprehension reading....
some guys out here feel it should be done at the end but i will say do it first of all because the questions
that will follow will kill ur time , because u will just keep on thinking bout those questions and in infy
english paper TENSE FILLING questions have almost same options so u will waste a lot of time
thinking bout them, and if u will do these at end, u will have less time to think, dont worry .. less time
or more time u will arrive to same answer because perception about tenses remain same no matter how
much time we spend reading them
In comprehension ques, search para graph wise, like the answer to first question will be in 1st
paragraph or atmost in 2nd para... so dont read the whole comprehension, search for KEYWORDS and
that also paragraph and question wise..
ques 11 -15
give the best sentence to above para which either supports the para or means the same as the para
ques 16-20
fill words like "will go/ would go", i mean the most appropiate one
ques 21 -25
correct the sentence like a sentence will be given and four options will be given the options will have
the above sentence in different forms, u will have to select the one which is technically the most
accurate rest ques i dont remember now
LETme give some tips
do pie chart first of all
then do figure ques
then language
and choose the rest order by looking at question paper.
do both the comprehensions at first tick the option in english paper which u think sounds correct,
believe ur intutiveness attempt all questions as there is no negative marking
PRAY TO GOD BEFORE STARTING PAPER ( ATHIESTS CAN ALSO TRY )
believe in urself even if u have failed in first 10 companies, its very difficult to do i know but just
believe that today is ur day , no matter whathas happened in the past.
after u finish ur paper, the result will be announced in 3 to 4 hours , so relax and cool down ur heels in
this time, talk to ur gf, bf in bw or move around with ur friends.... i m not telling this for making this
paper funny, it will help u relax a lot, forget the paper and dont discuss the questions... be busy eating
or whatever changes ur focus...
but be prepared with ur resume and ur formal dress coz the interview will start shortly after the
announcement of the result
i wsnt prepared with my formals , and one of my friend was without a resume and he gave the
interview without the resume and he got selected, sincere advice still, take a copy of resume with u
the result came about at 6 pm that day and i was more than delighted to hear my name.In all 250 odd
students were selected out of 1300 ppl for interview, from our college 24 managed to go through ...
they will announce the result in decreasing order of marks obtained and IF UR SCORE IS GOOD, the
interview is mere formality
well the my interview was at 8 pm , let me tell u my rank in that list was 7th or 8th, so i wasnt the best
scorer..
my interviewer was the coolest , among all panel interviewers
INTERVIEW EXPERIENCE
I entered the room, asked for a seat and He gave me a attendence sheet to sign he asked me to sign my
resume and give it to him then while he started reading my resume, he casually asked me, " tell me
something bout urself"
now prepare it well... i said my name is... i m frm .... my branch is .... and then i told him some of my
strong points like i m cool and composed under pressure situations when everyone around starts to
panic and few other strong points
then he asked me every question based on my resume so i wont mention again n again he asked me
what have i done in my 2 months training and interrupted me with a technical basic question then he
asked me y i have choosen handball while ppl normally play ckt...then he asked me y i hav so weird
hobbies of reading psychology, analysing ppls behaviour , interpreting dreams and being a gadget freak
we had a very long discussion on this topic , for around 8 mins the main point here to tell is that have a
resume that says something of u... also u should know every single detail of ur hobbies because they
normally concentrate on hobbies show good comm skills, be calm and think before u answer, dont rush
for an answer
after our discussion, ( he knew a lot more than me about psychology and dreamsso we had a long chat
on it) then he asked me to solve a puzzle, make 100 with 69's ie 999999
even if u know the answer, it is advisable to wait few seconds before u answer... i solved it this way
999/9.99
he was impressed by the simplicity of answer
then he said , ok it was nice talking to u, i would definately like to talk to u again , then i stood up and
shook hands with him ... then he asked me while holding my hand, who is the CM of bihar, i answered
then he asked, and of rajasthan , i honestly did not know so i said sorry sir, he said its a lady , i again
thought for a sec and said sorry again, he said she will love to be analysed by u, icud not answer
because i didnot know she was vasundra raje, i never heard of her , to be honest. then he said, ok thank
u, and with thank u , i left the room
and i cud guess that i was selected.
when the result came out at aroun 12.40am , those moments were the most memorable ones
18 out of 24 of our college got placed
hope this writing will help more of uto get selected and when u do,dont forget to come up and meet me
in mysore.. because i love making friends and helping ppl
this writing is my way of paying back what freshersworld.comowe to me because i read a lot of papers
of infy b4 my paper and they helped me a lot, hope this one helps a lot of ppl
my good wishes r with u

From the very PPT u will learn dat INFY z a very strict and disciplinedcompany and they always
demands quality and not quantity...they generally do no cum wid specific number of offer letters.It was
around 9:30am (21st feb) our PPT started...it was followed by APTITUDE TEST...around

INFOSYS PAPER ON 22nd FEBRUARY 2008
Hello frndz Its me TANUMOY frm BENGAL INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY wishing u all d best
for ur upcoming INFOSYS placement......well before i went for it i thot it was very hard and i hvno
chance.....but now dat i have cleared it then i feel dat its not dat too hard.....just u need determination
and confidence and MOST IMPORTANTLY ENGLISH.......
There were 2 parts of aptitude test:
1)LOGICAL
2)VERBAL
LOGICAL (30questions 40mins....60% cutoff)
(a) A cube sum of painting its sides and thene dividing into 1000 small cubes...and then 5 questions on
it....
(b) Figure matrix....u have to choose d odd one out or d next figure in line.....5 questions
(c) 5 Data Sufficiency problem...easy ones
(d) 5 Questions on Data Interpretation....a table was given on rice and wheat production....easy but
lengthy....will suggest to do this at last.
(e) 5 Questions on Puzzle test...it was d simplest of d lot.....there were 5 houses A,B,C,D,E,F 3 on each
side of the road with colours red,blue,green,white,etc......smallest house in green in colour....B which is
red is opposite to C...(remaining i forgot)....
(f) 5 Questions on Syllogism.....easy
just go thru RS Aggarwal.....and its enuff for d LOGICAL part......i ll suggest u to go for d maximum
marks here because its d easiest part than verbal.....while selecting they may go for d aptitude marks
too....
VERBAL(40questions 35mins....50% cutoff)
(a) 2 Simple comprehensions....4 Questions each...answers all given in d passage directly just needed to
find them.....Do these at last....
(b) 8 Questions on Choosing d appropriate sentence frm four options....these are a bit tricky....they all
seem to b correct.....practise sentence construction.....
(c) 8 Questions on sentence correction in which u have to find correct replacement for underlined part
in d sentence
(d) 8 Questions on Fill in d blanks with suitable grammatical words.....again all d 4 options ll seem
correct.....
(e) 8 Questions on Theme Detection......for each question a situation/passage is given with four
options.....u have to choose d appropriate one......
So friends this is d verbal part.....it may look easy but its a lot more tricky than being hard.....and this is
where most of d students gets elliminated...strange isnt it???? But "Truth is sometimes stranger than
fiction"....so i suggest go back to ur old cupboard and take out ur WREN n MARTIN again n ofcourse
go thru it....ALL D BEST

9) Ur weakness...do u have any? do u think its a weakness...y???
8) if u r chosen for Infy or TCS and u r asked to work on weekends so what ll u feel?

INFOSYS PAPER ON 19th FEBRUARY NOIDA
Hi friends….. This isNakshatra here from Skyline Institute of Engineering and technology, Greater
Noida…. I attended infosys on campus placement test on 19 th feb, 2008 held at IEC Greater Noida…..
I would like to share my experience with u & hope it would prove very valuable for u in the upcoming
period
Around900 students attended the test and out of them82 were finally selected, nddue toGods grace I
was one among them.
The Selection consists of 2 Phases :-
a) Written Test
b) HR Interview

In which, written test consists of two phases:-
1) APTITUDE:
30 questns in 40 minutes..
5 questns about arithmetical reasoning
5 questns on series completion (figure)
5 questns on puzzle test
5 questns on data interpretation (graphs)
5 questns on data sufficiency…….. and rst I dnt remember as I am writing it after around 10 days of the
test..

but anwz aptitude section wz easy….jst R.S. Aggrwal is very much sufficient for written test
I can say R.S.Aggarwal is sufficient for all companies written test......as becoz of it i hav also passed
the written test of L&T infotech but unable to
selected after Technical+HR Interview.
2) Verbal Reasoning (English) :-
40 questns in 35 mints..
2 big paragraphs followed by 5 questns each, although paragraphs were bit lengthy bt they were damn
easy…
8 questns on identifying correct sentences…..
8 questns on sentence correction…
fill in d blanks- 8 qustns..
6 questns on small paragraphs…

While answering questns u hav to keep the time in mind.... bcoz time management plays major role in
these type of papers

After Completion Of paper, Result is declared after 2hrs.... and my name is in the list

INTERVIEW:
The HR was vry nice person…First he asked me abt tell me about myself . then he asked me about my
strengths with example from my life… den he questnd abt how will u see urself after 5 yrs.,also he
asked some questns relatd to my achievements & hobbies mentioned in d cv….
then he gv me a puzzle related to triangles…..i stated d logic for solvng d puzzle and solved it
easily….. den he gv me another puzzlerelated to movements of coins..I tried it…..and give the answer
that is appropriate for me.....
Its my sincere advice to u friends, that if u hvnt practiced d puzzles, den dnt wrry…..dey dnt expect d
answers of d puzzles from u bt nly d logic and in d intrw if u dnt knw d solution of d puzzle den pl
don‟t sit dumb … nd jst try to build some logic in front of them…. , they just see ur approach of
tackling diff situations…. Jst be cool & confident……
Due to some doubt....i hav gone through another HR interview....where lady HR asked me about collg.
activities, about how i update my general knowledge....and about my special qualities.
At last she asked me if i want to ask anything to her....i tell yeah ....i asked what are the areas that u
think i hav to improved so that i will become more efficient
she tell u have to improve ur communiction skills...and also shesaid that u hav ur strengths...and
maintain it.
Now after 2 hrs , by god'd grace my name is in the list of those who get offer from Infy.
And at last I wud like to thank Freshersworld.com for providing such a wonderful platform to the
students 4 sharing their experiences…

See u frnds at infy ….
BEST OF LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!
INFOSYS PAPER ON 6th FEBRUARY MORADABAD
hi friends , this is mohit rana from M.I.T. ,MORADABAD.. Infy came to our college for campus
recruitment on 6th feb Apart from our college 3 other colleges sat for the drive & 119 out 650 of
dem(including me !!) were selected frm my college there are 31 selections...I exactly don`t remember
the number frm other colleges.. The ppt started at 9am & person frm infy told us each & every thing.
The Mysore campus where we will be having our training was simply awesum.. Be attentive in the
ppt.. notedown some quick favts about infy…….
Then the written test started, prior to starting we were made to fill form of infosys.

The test as usual consisted of 2 sections: (there is no negative marking)
1. Logical Reasoning
logical reasoning consisted of 30ques. in 40mins. the questions were::
1-5, a puzzle based prob. (rs agarwal type, but more ticky rather than difficult)
6-10, figure probs (too easy, practice some frm rs)
11-16, data sufficiency prob. (rs agarwal sufficient, very easy)
17-20, data interpretation based on bar graph (simple but involves lengthy n precise calculation, better
to attempt at last)
21-24, another puzzle (rs type, but try to be attentive for d clues given. It can b a bit tricky n lengthy)
25-30, syllogism ques (too easy, follow d venn diagram method)
Time management is very important, many of friends were not able to solve ol d ques. then d ques
paper was taken, generally all of u will be able to crack this paper particularly
Within time given……..u just need to be a bit quick.

2. English
n english ques paper was given..PLEASE Refer to some CAT material coz its level is really very high n
it‟s a real time game coz u need to do 40 ques in 30-35 mins the question pattern was ::
1-5 , reading comprehension (particularly in my paper it was very tough n lengthy so be prepared)
6-10, reading comprehension (the level in my paper was as for first one but generally second one is
given short n easy….n ques given on rc r not direct rather than theme detection type)
11-20, fill in the blanks (pls refer BARRON‟s GRE)
21-30, choose correct sentence from 4 given sentences (not easy 1`s so b carefull as there is only a
slight difference n u hv to select which is more grammatically correct pls refer WREN n MARTIN)
31-40, u have to choose wich title suits best for d above given paragraph.
Be careful for english part coz most of the candidates get rejected here only.. Time management is
must!!! Solve RC`s at last..Though I did 2 rc‟s in initial13mins (as I hav alwez been strong in
comprehension ) & hence got 22mins to solve the rest 30 ques from grammar wich i did at last!!
so plan the paper according to your strength!!

after d test results were announced in 2 hours, i was very glad to note tat i was selected.. As dere was
sectional cut-off which is around 60% for reasoning & 50 % for english, very less students from my
college get selected.. After written results, with no time delay HR interviews started. A panel of 6 HR`s
came who were taking interview in 6 different interview rooms. Mostly of dem were aged between 40-
55. But dey were too gentle to d candidates..
but interview of our college students took place next morning in college campus……
Mine was a person of around 50. he was nice n asked me some common ques. he gave me 3 puzzles,
I am giving ques as wre asked for ur interest……

HR INTERVIEW
ME: may I come in sir?
HR: yes come in…….hav d seat.
ME: thank you sir.
HR: are you having any backlogs?
ME: no sir
(then he gave me 2-3 forms to write name n sign on)
HR: so tell me about yourself?

(n I came out)

My interview lasted for around 15mins. All dey chk for is ur communication skills n confidence.. They
want persons with excellent communication skills.. N one more thing once u hav cleared d written,
almost 75% of ur selection is confirmed. Rejections at HR is less.. So focus well on written part coz its
the biggest barrier & once u cross it, u r almost through!!!
After the interviews got over, in about 30mins, final results were announced, i was veryyyyyyy glad dat
i was selected..Celebrations were ol around as this was d 2nd company in which i sat & cracked it !!!
So friends cracking infy is not a difficult task.. All u need is some smart-work, good communication
