Share Us With Others


Hi friends I m Anuj Gupta studying B.Tech(EC) 3yr in GALGOTIA, gr. noida.There was written exam on 30th jan 2008 in MRCE, faridabad of Infosys. 4 colleges participated- Galgotia, MRCE, GNIT, FIT. 

They had PPT with us . that was gud n u must present in tht. u will definitely get some idea abt infosys. I still remember one thing of ppt Infosys need those who want 2 marry with infosys not those who want to have affair 

here frankly speaking i didnt prepare anything for infosys. only luck made me 2 through this.
there were two sections:-
I.Critical reasoning
II.Verbal ability

for critical reasoning u need 2 be focussed, concentated and apply ur full mind and nothing else u need 2 have(ofcourse gud luck is must!!). for verbal ability the questions involve tenses, word meanings, prepositions and some basic english gammer rules. there were 2 reading compehensions 5 ques each and these  d most scoring among verbal. first read d ques n then find d answer frm d passage.Take care of one thing FORGET everything which u know abt the passage aleady. just answer the questions from what is given in the pasage. Time management is ofcourse important to answer all the questions in time.


NO NEGATIVE MARKING u will be given rough sheet. Solve ur answers on rough sheet as neat as u can. this rough sheet is evaluated at the time of interview Before the written exam u will be given a form. U r required 2 write ur % and some other personal details and also paste a photo. If u take ur photo in formals(tie,coat), that will be best. Fill ur % CAREFULLY.

Well thats all about written exam. After sometime d results were announced and our college students those cleared written were asked 2 report next day with 2 copies of RESUME, Originals and photocopies of our certificates.


In the interview of Infosys, usually no technical questions are asked unless u mention something big in ur resume e.g. my friend mentioned about robotics so she was asked questions abt robot etc. Prepare puzzles from internet and from shakuntala devi as puzzles are the main issue in interview and also some questions of G.K. e.g. president of india, her husband, capital of u.p., J&K etc. Basically they r not interested ur answer of puzzles, they r checking ur approach So solve them nicely on the paper as u can or explain them verbally how r u solving ur problem. usually very old people r HRs of Infosys. They want us 2 be very POLITE and confident. So be POLITE and DONT SHOW UR ATTITUDE. DONT ARGUE with them. Prepare some common things e.g. which newspaper u read, name of its editor, which sections of paper u read, hw u gather information, wht u surf on internet, do u hv any girlfriend etc

My HR was a very old person. My experience is as follows:

HR: come in Me: gud afternoon sir HR: have ur seat Me: thnku sir Hr: give ur resume I stood and gave it Hr: tell me abt urself Me: bla bla Hr: u hv filled ur % in ur form. R u confident on them? Me: yes sir Hr: then sign here Me:I signed Hr: is it ur first interview in Infosys? Me: yes sir Hr: then sign here Me: I signed Hr: so anuj, whats ur family background? Me: bla bla Hr: so u r the only son of ur family Me: yes sir Hr: then ur mother will have problem if we will send u at far off places? Me: no sir she will nt have any problem Hr: no she will have It takes me sometime 2 convince him but finally he was looking convinced Then he pointed 2 my resume and underlined my achievements and asked: Hr: u dont have any achievement in college? Me: actually sir I participated in many events but unable 2 achieve any Hr: what kind of events? Me: explained Hr: u also didnt participate in any outdoor activity? Me: yes sir I didnt participate in any outdoor activity because I m suffering frm Myopia and doctor told me nt 2 do any physical exercise Hr: oh I see, so whats ur power of spect? I said the same as written in my form Hr: this is not much Me: but sir its increasing readily Hr: oh I see Hr: how do u increase ur knowledge? Me: newspaper, internet surfing and interacting with people Hr: hw many times in a week u go to internet Me: once in a week Hr: what do u surf? Me: said Hr: which newspaper u read? Me: TOI Hr: do u read it daily? Me: no sir, on weekends Hr: do u read this Sunday Me: no sir Hr: which sections of TOI u read Me: front page and DT Hr: oh a lot of pics are there!! Me: yes sir, I usually read bollywood masala(thank God he doesnt ask anything abt bollywood!!!!) Hr: so who is ur favourite actor and actress? Me: sir my favourite actor is Amir Khan and actress is Priyanka Chopra Hr: which latest movie have u seen of her? Me: sorry sir, I dont remember Hr: as a man what do u like in priyanka chopra!!!! Me: I like her Smile Hr: what? Me: sir I like her smile Hr: oh I see her smile Hr: tell me ur three strengths Me: optimist, never give up attitude, dont get angry easily Hr: hw do u knw tht u dont get angry easily? Me: this is wht my colleages, parents and relatives says Hr: when do u get annoyed? Me: when I see people r taking advantage of someones trust Hr: whats ur career objective? Me: I answered something which shows my commitment to the organization Hr: do u want to ask any question? Me: yes sir, I want to know abt training session and hw my job profile will be decided Hr: he explained me and then asked me 2 leave Me: thanku sir

Well thats all I was not asked any puzzle or something related 2 studies.

I m also writing some points where my friends make mistakes:

When he asks r u confident on ur % say yes. If u have any doubt clear it after ur interview by taking help of ur TPO etc. Dont show that u lack of confident Paste ur photo in formals as I hv already told Dont argue with interviewer. Dont show attitude. Be POLITE and HONEST. Of course hv gud body lang and eye contact etc etc.

Then after waiting for sometime results were announced and my name was there. Among Galgotia, 90 were selected.
