First and foremost important thing is to be confident. If u trust yourself, you have won half the battle. Even if you dont get through, dont get disappointed. The world does not end here, may be you a better opportunity is waiting for you
As you all must be knowing , the recent format for the Infy exam is as follows:-
Written test is in two parts:
A)Reasoning(30 ques, 40 mins.)
B)English(40 ques,35 mins.)
It comprised of 30 ques to be solved in a span of 40 mins. There were 6 questions with approx 5 subparts each. The questions we got are as follows:
First collect the following books when u start preps for reasoning section.
1) R.S. AGRAWAL- Verbal & non verbal reasoning
2) R.S. AGRAWAL- Quantative aptitude( ONLY FOR DATA INTRPRETATION QUES.)
3) Any CAT Coaching material, TIME ,CL, PT...........etc.
starting with the paper, the questions are as follows:
1)PUZZLE :-( 5 questions based on puzzle):A simple puzzle was asked, an easy one............do practice by R.s. agrawal.( verbal n non verbal) in the chapter (PUZZLE TEST).PUZZLE IS THAT :-
There are 100 cards distributed into 7 friends n 6 are got same no. of cards n remaining one got 5 less than others. simply they exchange cards among them. And 5 ques. On this puzzle.
2)VISUAL REASONING:-(5 questions): There are 5 ques. of this type is there.they r of odd man out type.the figure which is not like the other 4 figures is selected as answer.remember this is the most easiest part of the paper,if u practice well these type of ques. given in non verbal reasoning part of R.S.AGRAWAL.Then no one stops from doing all 5 ques. right.THUS,this part should be attempted first as they required less time than others
3) DATA SUFFICENCY: -( 5 questions):
You have to decide if the information given in the statements is sufficient for answering the problem. Indicate your answer as:
a) alone is sufficient to answer the question.
b) II alone is sufficient to answer the question.
c) either I or II are sufficient to answer the question.
d) both are not sufficient to answer the question.
e) both are needed to answer the question.
FOR e.g.,one question i remember.........
a)what is the two digit number if?
1) sum of the digits is something....?
2)difference of digits is something......?
4) DATA INTERPRETATION(5 QUESTIONS):-
Two LINE GRAPHS were given & 5 quest based on this are given......Its little time consuming and a bit tough also. practice R.S AGRAWAL DI questions of all types which are given.......but i suggest u all to attempt it at last as very lengthy calculations r there. I also attempted it last. Also if u are practicing well i advice u to use guess work...............some ques . does not demand full calculations..........they can be solved visually also...................I make 2 of them by this method. Especially it works in line graph type questions................
5) LOGICAL PUZZLE (5 QUESTIONS):-
Again a puzzle was there, but it was slightly lengthy...............
It was about 6 persons (3 male & 3 female) preparing for banking exams of 3 diff. banks.
Each 2 of them are good in three diff. parts i.e. English, quanta, & reasoning. We have to determine the right combination. Questions are based on these combinations. Similar problems are given in R.S.AGRAWAL. You practice from there.
6).LOGICAL DEDUCTION(5 QUESTIONS):-
These are problems in which logical deduction capability was checked. Questions are like, 5-6 sentences are given like some As are Bs, Bs are Cs, Ds are Es,..................you are supposed to find the group of logically correct sentences .i. e. ABC, CDF,BCE etc.
This is all about the reasoning part.
They do not disclose the cut off. I solve about 20-22 ques correct .but my friends with 17 score was also selected. So, don t worry about the cut off, just do ur best.
if it was tough then it was tough for all. So, keep ur mind free from tension.
IMPORTANT: there was no negative marking. but that doesnt means that u attempt all the ques. without some approach. Beware that they check ur rough work & so even if u dont know the solution of some problem, then please show some approach in rough work provided with paper. Remember that they do not check the wild guesses without some approach. So if u wants to get checked ur wild guesses, THEN PLEASE DO UR ROUGH WORK NEAT & CLEAN& SHOW SOME APPROACH
Thats all about reasoning section. now they put the English paper before u.
ENGLISH PAPER (40 questions - 35 minutes):
It contains 40 ques. to be completed in 35 min.it consist of following type of ques.
Time management is very much essential here. The pattern of this question is:

2)Selecting the correct option which is grammatically correct from the available four options.
3)fill in the blanks type questions
