Infosys paper 2010.


This is Raman Kumar from Noida. I am 2009 MCA passed out from ABES Engineering College, Ghaziabad.


Friends it was the off-campus drive. The Written test was on 29th August. Aptitude paper of Infosys are little bit tough in compare to others.


This was my second attempt for Infosys, First was when i was in College (On Campus) in 2008.


I have already listened many times that If you can Clear the Written Exam of Infosys it means you have made it upto 70%. In the Interview, you just need to be active. So I prepared for the same. Before written exam, a Pre-Placement talk was scheduled but later on cancelled due to heavy rush and less space.


Important points to clear the written exam:

1. R.S. Aggarwal is good enough for preparation of written exam.

2. A week's prepration can make you through. But you have to practice it seriously.

3. Time management is the biggest factor.

4. Follow the rules defined by Infosys. They are the company of etiquettes.

5. Philosophical (from me): Make your Desire really strong and also provide the actions that can match your desire. When you are appearing for the test then forget all the world just go into it.


Written Exam:

There were two sections
1. Aptitude and Logical reasoning (30 questions, 30 minutes)
2. English ( 35 questions, 40 minutes)


Aptitude and Logical reasoning:


I don't remember the exact questions. But I remember the topics

1. Problems on Ages

2. Time and Work (Questions like- A can do this in 8 hrs and b can in 10 hrs, then A+B?)

3. Percentage

4. Puzzles

5. Logical Problems

6. Numbers

7. Missing figure

8. Data sufficiency




1. Paragraph

2. Inferences (Select the sentence that doesn't match)

3. Sequesnces of Sentences according to priority

4. Correct the sentence

5. Other Grammer


Practice all the above topics. All type of questions at least once.


When I was doing the Written Exam, I felt - Thank God I have spent last two days in the prepration because my preparation for the exam was really helping me. After submitting the test, I was confident and feeling that I'll clear but I was continuously asking God for his grace and help.


We had to wait for a long time for the results. Near about 5 p.m. in the evening they announced.

All the sheets were passing out and I was hungry to listen my name. Then the person who was announcing the result spoke "This is the Last Sheet and only 10 candidates on it." On the 5th number he announced "Raman Kumar".
I had cleared the written exam. They told us Interview dates and Venue will be informed us by mail. 170 students were selected from the interview.




I got the mail for Interview. My Interview held on 16th September at Nehru Place, New Delhi.


Note: Infosys interviewers are really experienced persons. There were lots of Old age persons in the panel. They really notice your etiquettes. Be Polite. They are Nice people. Main thing is that they are questioning to hire you not to reject you. Give then Good response and you'll be picked up. Show them your learning ability. Show them your way of problem solving.

Read Puzzles before going into the Interview.

They read my resume for some time and I was expecting that there first question will be "Some thing about yourself" and I was preparing for this one. But they shocked me by asking an UnExpected question as technical first one.
