infosys Placement paper Drive in JB Institute Hyderabad 22 Jan
Hi friends, first of all i would like to thank.
1. a short ppt describing d organization,their expectations,etc……..(go thru it seriously as day might ask nothing related to it during d interview n also u gt some queries dat u might ask at d end of ur interview)
2. written test…(paper-pencil based n not computer based)
Mainly focuses on reasoning n english usage.
a)reasoning test-30 ques 40 min
1-5 ques wer based on ranking….available in rs aggarwal(verbal n non-verbal)
eg.a student ranks 9th 4m d top n 15th 4m d bottom in a class.how many students r dere in d class.
ques 6-10 wer based on visual reasoning….rs aggarwal
…5 figures r given-find d odd one out.
ques 11-15 wer on data sufficiency…
a ques is given,followed by 2 statements…v’ve 2 check whether d statements r sufficient 2 ans d ques or not…… R.S.Aggarwal
ques 16-20 was a simple set of data interpretation.
21-25 was a puzzle on blood relations.
25-30 wer on syllogism….
For all d ques in dis section R.S.Aggarwal is both necessary n sufficient.
40 ques-35 min.
dis was a tough part 4 all those who dont hve a good foundation in english.As d ques wer nt 4m a particular book or known source, one’s proficiency in english was d only key 2 clear dis section.So if u r nt very gud at eng. den start ur preparation early.
d section startd wid a page-long passage on racism…followed by 5 ques
next was a half-page passage…i dont remember d exact topic
both d passages were doable given dat u’ve a gud speed in reading long texts.
There were many ques. on replacing d underlined part wid d correct option.
there were also many ques on sentence completion…or say fill in d blank.
also some of d ques i m unable 2 recall.
Do not start d eng. section wid passages, dey r highly tym consuming…attempt dem after goin thru d rest of d sections. THERE WAS SECTIONAL CUT-OFF n no negative marking.
Test ppr will b different at different locations.
After around 2 hours,d results wer declared.A total of 68 students cud clear d written out of 180+.
As dey were announcing d names,interviews startd immediately.(only HR interview…no technical)
There were around 4-5 single interviewer panels.
(As mine was d first name on d list,i was d 1st 2 give d interview on my panel n so obviously very nervious.I guess d interviewer understood dis 4m his very 1st ques.)
me: May I cme in,sir.
hr: yes,hv a seat.
(meanwhile he ws goin thru a copy of my resume,marksheets n form dat dey hd asked 2 fill b4 written test.All dese documents r wid d hr even b4 u enter d room.)
hr:tell me somethin ’bout urself.
me:answered (but vry nervously.I almost screwed up dis vry imp ques.)
hr: tell me somethin ’bout ur minor n major project.
me:answered.(now i ws soundin a bit confident n relaxed)
hr: did u face ne problems during ur project work.?
me: asnwered.(b honest n if u didnt face ne such problem den cook up one b4 goin 4 d interview,dey r more interestd in ur approach to solve d problem at hand…if possible go 4 an elaborated ans.)
hr: wer dere ne situations wen u’d 2 work in time-limits,deadlines??

hr: asked ’bout family background.
hr: do u’ve ne exp. of workin in a team.

hr:ok den,dat will b it.u cn leave now.

Prepare above questions well.
