Infosys Candidate-Experiences


Infosys Candiadate Experience


I am sharing my campus drive experience Of Infosys organised by our university for students of its campus on 30th and 31st October 2014.There were approx.142 students who were sitting in this placement drive.It was a two day drive, the pre placement and aptitude was conducted on the 1st day and the interviews on the second day.1st let us move on to the pre placement section, an fourty mins presentation consisting of videos and information about the company was discussed by the H.R who visited us.


A] Aptitude Test 


a) Section 1 (15 questions, 25 minutes) : Data interpretation, Data sufficiency and Syllogisms.
i. Data interpretation :


They will give a graph or pie chart or tables. Ours was a pie chart of sales of some product, their cost in respective years. These questions are tricky, but be calm and think logically while solving them as they know what are the mistakes one can commit and options can be confusing.


ii. Data sufficiency :


It is easier than the others, you just need to think calmly.


iii. Syllogisms :


This is another tricky part, but you just need to read the sentences carefully may be more than once, and think rationally to answer, don't get confused.


b) Section 2 (10 questions, 35 minutes) :


Its complete mathematical section i,e quantitative aptitude.Permutation combination, series and coding-decoding may appear in this part, practise from different websites including this and follow R.S aggarwal. puzzles are quite tricky in this section, read all the options carefully and then answer.


c) Section 3 (40 questions 35 mins) : Verbal 


Easy but the toughest to crack, most of my fellows couldn't get through it, because of this section. The preliminary thing I would like to suggest is, focus on the time management. Two extra large paragraphs will be given to you, you have to read it very carefully as questions are not straight forward, no extra time for reading, so practise reading from computers. And most important give short exams on verbal that are available in several websites including this. Practise from R.S aggarwal as well.
