Plz. consider my experience.<br />I happened to attend kanbay interview at my campus - vasavi college of engg HYD<br /><br />Kanbay test consisted three rounds <br />first one --- written test, consisted 2 parts 1>MATHS 2> REASONING.<br />reasoning was dead easy & maths was easy but somewhat time consuming with many calculations. there were five sets of papers, time given was 90 mins (more than sufficient) with cuttoff 12 in each section (i fell there was upper cutoff too!)<br /><br />second one ---- a GD <br />we were given choice, later they have decided to conduct role play. batch of 10 for abt 30 mins, many were selected.<br /><br />third --- interview consisted both HR as well as TECH .it was less of tech more of HR <br /><br />overall it was very easy, I personally feel kanbay has lot of requirement! <br />have attended on-campus of CTS at JNTU, hyd on 20/jul/05. I want to share some of my experiences with u.<br /><br />PATTERN:<br />1)Written test 40 Questions 60 minutes<br />problems from probability, time&distance,progressions,4 to 6 from general english<br />2)Technical + Hr for 30 min.<br /><br />Written test looks a little bit hard but answer those questions u r perfect first. So that time will be adjusted. Don't get nervous, nobody can attempt full paper.<br /><br />Interview is so cool and every question they ask depends on ur previous answer. while giving answers see that u know everything u r saying about. Be confident while answering even it is wrong. Just go thru the 64-Q&A generally asked in interviews like why should we hire u? why do u think ur perfect for this company?

Finally the aptitude test ended with some data interpretation questions.<br />Antonyms of:<br />Increduluous<br />Zest<br />Officious<br /><br />Analogies:<br />RANK:INSIGNIA -> PEOPLE:STATUS<br />FATIGUE:RESTING -> OVERWEIGHT:DIETING<br /><br />2.Maths:<br />This part was easy but somewhat tricky.<br />2.1 A figure with 8 poles was given. Each pole was separated by a distance of 8m. It was given that a man runs to each pole and back. Asked to find the total distance to reach the last pole? (Ans: 288)<br />2.2 Are there more Sundays in a millenium or inches in a kilometre. (Ans: inches)<br />2.3 A gambler has the "easy go easy way" policy. He doubles his money the first time and gives away $1. He trebles his money the next time and gives away $2. Finally he is left with 4 times the amount he started with. How much money he had when he started?(Ans: $2.5 check)<br />2.4 Are there more centimetres in a kilometre or seconds in a day? ( Ans: centimetres)<br />2.5 A person purchases goods at three(3) shops successively. Each time he spends 2/3 of the amount he has. If he is left with 50 paise after the last purchase, how much money he had in the beginning?<br />(Ans: Rs 13.5/-)<br />2.6 & 2.7 Two questions on age. (very easy). <br />2.8 My double exceeds my half by 2. What am i? (Ans 4/3)<br />2.9 N packets are transmitted through a network. The probability of a packet being error prone is P. What is the probability that all packets are transmitted error free? (Ans (1-P)^N check)<br />2.10 Y-X^2=25 is a function. What is the y intercept? (Ans 25)<br />2.11 A machine has N parts. The probabilty that any part fails is P. The machine fails of any of the part fails. Fine the probabilty that none of the part fails?(Ans 1-P^N).<br />2.12 Mexico is 13 hours behind Singapore in time. Singapore itself is 7 hours ahead of London in time. If it is 10 minutes past 4 on Tuesday morning in London what is the time and day in Mexico?<br />2.13 If a hen and a half lays an egg and a half, how much will half a dozen hens lay in half a dozen days?<br />2.14 A person deals playing cards among people. On the first chance he deals among 4 people and 3 cards are left. Next he deals amongs 2 and 3 cards are left. (Don't remember this one exactly..)<br />2.15<br /><br />3.

APTITUDE and VERBAL<br /><br />2. HR<br /><br />NOTE :(we were given an application form of infy we were asked to write it before the exam had started)<br /><br /> <br /><br />APTITUDE:<br /><br />All questions were of REASONING type -----30 questions(R.S Aggarwal reasoning book is more than enough)<br /><br />here time management is very important<br /><br />One question was time consuming for me and<br /><br />that was from the puzzle test so be prepared wid all 7 models of PUZZLE TEST<br /><br /> <br /><br />we had DATA INTETERPRETATION and as i couldnt solve the 1st question properly i had to solve this<br /><br />so dont waste time for the questions u cannot solve instead do the one which is easier n refer(r s aggarwal quantitative aptitude for this)<br /><br />mostly bar charts,tables and pi charts are given(we were given a table)<br /><br /> <br /><br />5 questions were from FIGURES<br /><br />we were given 3 figures followed by a '?' <br /><br />in this the 1st two figures are have some relationship b/w them n based on that we hav to pick an answer figure which matches the 3rd figure<br /><br />this was an easy one<br /><br /> <br /><br />5 questions were from SYLLOGISM<br /><br />this was a bit different from wht i thought<br /><br />they give 5 statements naming them a,b,c,d,e<br /><br />then the answers choices were like 3 were paired eg:1)abe 2)dbe 3)aeb 4)dae<br /><br />n we hav to find the pair which corretly matchs it if u do r.s aggarwal n r perfect wid all rules of syllogism i dont thing this would b tough<br /><br /> <br /><br />5 questions were of DATA SUFFICIENCY type<br /><br />i felt this was easy<br /><br />the questions i remember were from mensuration,length of train,ages of people<br /><br /> <br /><br />thts it in this part, we were not told the cutoff but i think its better to try for atleast 20 out of 30<br /><br /> <br /><br />VERBAL:<br /><br />40 questions were there<br /><br />i scored 24 marks<br /><br />there were 2 RCs one was of 2 pages i attempted in the last 5 min but i did it well i believe<br /><br />then we had<br /><br /> <br /><br />correction of sentences<br /><br />fill in the blank with correct word<br /><br />around 5to 6 passages for which we had go choose the correct summary<br /><br />u hav to read these very fast<br /><br />time management is very very imp. here<br /><br />do not waste even one min looking here and there coz tht one min costs a loooooooot<br /><br /> <br /><br />finally i was called my name for HR n i was on the top of the world<br /><br />i actually got thru wipro also but the joy of getting into a dream company is just great<br /><br />one should definately experience it<br /><br /> <br /><br />HR:<br /><br />One important thing is tht dont think tht its just HR<br /><br />u should always remember tht there is one more hurdle to pass<br /><br />in my 1st interview i hav learnt a lot "wht to do n wht not to do in the HR round" so if u hav not yet been placed then first analyze why tht has happened n try to improve on that coz there r huge oppertunities in this world<br /><br />some way or the other u can get thru once u improve on ur flaws<br /><br />so be confident and dont be jelous abt the ones who hav already got its a very bad thing<br /><br /> <br /><br />My HR round was coool<br /><br />HR: come in swathi<br /><br />me: yes sir<br /><br />HR: cmon take ur seat<br /><br />me: thank u sir (he had asked my resume and asked me to sign on it n also at few places on the application form)<br /><br />HR: so ur father works as so n so<br /><br />me: yes sir<br /><br />HR: so where does he work<br

for tht so i answered n i think he was happy wid my answer<br /><br />HR: k swathi there r 6 matchsticks here arrange them so that "each one touches one another"<br /><br />me : i could make 5 to touch each other but not the 6th one<br /><br />HR: then he asked me to make 4 equlateral triangles with those sticks<br /><br />me: (the answer is to make a pyramid out of it)i almost did it then he

PAPER ON 27th JULY AT KOCHIHi…am Salman Ali..doin my 7th sem in B.Tech,I.T at Cochin University of Science and Technology, Kochi ,Kerala. InfoSys had com to our college last Friday,27.07.07….am so happy that with the Almighty`s grace I was able to turn that day into another Good Friday.. <br /><br />As u must hav read de other experiences…Infy exam is very simple. All u require is som gud concentratn,time management and ofcourse good preparation.. For preparation I mainly read the experiences many others hav posted at FRESHERSWORLD.COM which helped me tremendously…So let me say…”Jai FreshersWorld!!!!”…… <br /><br />Then as per their advices I went for Verbal n Nonverbal by R.S Agarwal….Also for a few sections I used I.M.S CAT notes which also helped me heavily…O.k,lets start… <br /><br />Written test contains 2 parts…<br />1.logical<br />2.English <br /><br />The logical part consists of 6 type of Questions each having 5 q`s…The types are <br />1.Data interpretation<br />2.Data Sufficiency<br />3.Syllogisms<br />4.Pictorial Q`s<br />The other two might b anything from Puzzles,Blood relation Q`s, Cubes n Dices. <br /><br />As for Data interpretatn,it takes gud amt of time,so it wud be best done at last. Topics like Data Sufficiency n Syllogisms I covered from I.M.S notes…Syllogisms do not come as they r seen in agarwal…they give a pack of 6 sentences from which u hav to select the appropriate 2 statements n a conclusion. answer contains 4 options lik abd,cef,eba..etc etc…its very very simple. all u hav to do is go from the answers using trial and error method…. data suff. Q`s com from any part of aptitude. so u hav to b fast in applying your brains to c if the statements r suff or not. its not necessary 2 find the answer…tak care of time… <br /><br />Pictorial Q`s may b to find the odd one or to find the missing figure. Both are very well given in agarwal(verbal n nonverbal). <br />For us the first ques was tat card game called Flash..its simple but takes time.i had already done one of them from my I.M.S material(Logical Reasoning).Luckily for me,the same q came.he he he..the answers were (1)74 (2) 26 (3) 18 (4)16 (5){9,9,10}………….. <br /><br />The final type was related to relations…as in…5 friends stayin in different societies and each of them having a different bank account…and the q`s wer lik who has a acc wher,who lives in society X…..etc etc..it simple…. <br /><br />All u hav to do is tak care of ur time…40 mins for 30 q`s…b in touch wth ur watch… <br /><br />Now for the English part which is 35 mins for 40 q`s…pls dnt go for the passages..keep them for the end…the other q`s are correcting sentence,fill in ,concluding a para etc etc..if u r week in English try out the verbal(agarwal)..I.M.S notes also help..otherwis it shouldn’t b a problem..its simple..but time consuming..so again..tak good good care of ur time….Try answering all..dont think thers negative marking…so mak it a blast…<br /><br />Then the H.R…I was de first one to attend…it was simple…jus casual talk…actually my H.R was so cool tat I forgot it was an intervw..very relaxed..jus had a natural conversantn…. <br /><br />And all praise to the Almighty I was one among the 25 selected…47 from 329 had passed the written….really njoyd cz I had not even told my parents abt the exam tat day..so it was a total surprise dhamaka…..yeaaaaahhh!!!!! <br />nothin technical was askd…prepare for the exam well…not by reading the whole of agarwaal,but by going thru the required topics…Vikashttp://www.blogger.com/profile/10101804702065839305noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-78725904956316465.post-80139310550069439842008-09-06T14:27:00.002-07:002008-09-06T14:28:09.475-07:00INFOSYS PAPER ON ON 29th JULYHi Friends, Im KAVITA from H.B.T.I Kanpur, recently INFOSYS Technologies visited our campus.

Given that the time taken by A to take 1 step is equal to time taken by B to take 3 steps. Find the no. of steps in the escalator while it is staionary.<br /><br />Solution (not sure):<br />If A takes 1 step in one second, then B takes 3 steps in one second. If A takes t1 seconds to take 50 steps, then B takes 150 steps in t1 seconds.<br />For B, to take 150 steps he requires t1 seconds,<br />Then to take 75 steps he requires t1/2 seconds.<br />So now, s1=50, t1 = t1 & s2=75, t2=t1/2<br />ans= (s1*t2 ~ s2*t1) / (t1 ~ t2) which gives 100.<br />so 100 steps is the answer<br /><br />2.

The doctor was thinking that Boobie was a goofy name for parent's to choose,but didn't say anything. What is each person's occupation?<br />Ans: Since Dave spoke to the biologist and Ann sat next to the chemist and across the doctor, Cathy must be the author and Ann the biologist. The doctor didn't speak, but David did, so Bobbie is the doctor and Dave the chemist.<br /><br />13. Sometime after 10:00 PM a murder took place.

More no of students were eliminated in this round.<br />Only thing u have to do is be cool and confident. They will allot 10 students per batch. And they wikll allot time for us they have given 15 minutes .For me GD started at 9:30pm The topic given to our batch is 'CO EDUCATION IS BETTER OR NOT'. They will divide 10 students into 2 batches one batch has to speak positive (by saying yes) about the topic and one batch has to speak against (by saying NO) the topic .Fortunately I was in the infavour batch .<br /><br />The main things to be followed in group discussion:<br />1.IF POSSIBLE TRY TO BE AN INITIATOR.<br />2.BE COOL & CONFIDENT.<br />3.MAKE SURE WITH THE VOICE MODULATION.<br />4.ALLOW OTHERS TO SPEAK,THATS MORE IMPORTANT.<br />5.KEEP EYE CONTACT WITH EVERYONE .<br />If u follow all these then u can feel comfort during group discussion.<br /><br />After GD they will announce results. After GD,18 students were selected for the Technical+HR interview. <br /><br />BY GOD GRACE I have been selected in GD also and they sadi interview is tomorrow (june 20th) so full night tension for me but I slept well and woke up at 7 pm and started preparing for interview interview was at 10:30 and we all went to interview at sharp 10:30 they started calling our names at 1:50 they called my name……….)<br /><br />The next round is the technical+hr interview. In this round u have to be confident in ur area of interest , C programming and if u r an electrical student be confident with ur electrical and electronics basics. (for me HR is a nice person he tested my confidence and he has spoken very friendly . I have seen him in GD itself so some what familiar and his smile made me more comfortable in interview)<br /><br />My interview went like this<br />ME : May I come in sir ?<br />HR : Yes come in<br />ME : Good after noon Sir (it was 2:30 pm )<br />HR: Good noon<br />HR : Hai Krishna , How r u?<br />ME : Fine , thank you sir.<br />HR : He saw my application form and asked Do you have your CV(Resume) with u ?<br />ME: Yes sir, ( I have given my Cv ).<br />HR : By seeing my first semester certificate( before that he asked to give my file ) he asked about subjects in that certificate<br />ME : I explained clearly .<br />HR : He asked my second semester certificate<br />ME : Got tense ( as I don’t have second sem certificate ) We don’t have second sem certificate sir results came two weeks back only ……<br />HR : But u should have at least a printed proof for your marks .<br />ME: Yes sir , I have print out copy for that (BY god grace I kept one print out in my file)<br />HR : By seeing that one he asked about subjects which I have covered in second semester)<br />HR: Ok, Krishna Why you are coming to Software field ?<br />ME : Explained nicely (as I have prepared before itself)<br />HR : Why should I hire you ?

After an hour , one placement representative came and started announcing the names . By GOD GRACE my name was in that list and he called all of us in to another room there INAUTIX main HR said congrats to all of us and given some instructions <br /><br />Totally 11 students got selected from our college and i am very happy that i am one of the 11. really i was very happy and thank GOD for giving me this opportunity. so friends have faith in GOD , work hard and success will be urs.......................................<br />Stay as cool as you could and that will fetch you the job...

I got into Iflex today. thx to those cool interviewers. I will suggest you to know finance, banking very well before going to Interview.<br /><br />Firstly there was aptitude test at 10PM. it was for 1 hour and had 50 questions with negative marking( so be careful, answer only those you know). I attempted 42 and scored 30 (Sneaked during HR interview!) It had same pattern as previous papers. Comprehension, data interpretation, logical reasoning, numerical analysis. It was the easiest one compared to infy, TCS, merit track papers.<br /><br />After test we had PPT for 45 minutes. It ended at 12.30. Then they announced results at 1 pm. 65 got through. and i was 1 among them. then we had to fill up the application forms.<br /><br />Then interview started at 2.00. technical interview was first. They called me in at 3.30. ALWAYS REMEMBER "first impression is the best impression". So they were expecting you to knock the door, ask permission. I was wearing cream shirt ,black pant and black shoes (thats d best formals for any interview). Then i went in shook his hand and said " good afternoon ,sir"<br /><br />Int: Tell me abt urself<br />Me: stammered a lot<br /><br /><br /> <br />Int: ur family background<br />Me: (i realized that i had skipped to tell about my family background, i dunno whether he was listening to me or not coz he was writing down something)<br /><br />Int: what r d subjects u r studying in this semester?<br />Me: ( i dunno what stuck my head,that was totally unexpected 1, i told only 2 subjects, i was thinking god c'mmon which r the remaining, then suddenly someone came in and gave the interviewer a cup of coffee. thx god for sending him in Perfect timing).<br />I was still coninuing to tell 1 by 1. i said MECHATRONICS at last)<br /><br />Int: what did you studied in mechatronics ?<br />Me: sensors, transducers, actuactors, microprocessors sir<br /><br />Int: where r those microprocessors used in real life?<br />Me: they are used in ECU's of automobiles, washing machines , refrigerators.sir<br /><br />Int: whats their role in refrigerators?<br />Me: ( surely, i dint know the correct answer,) sir there will be some some sensors in refrigerator that will sense temperature inside the refrigerator, after sensing the temperature it will send the info to microprocessor. microprocessor will compare it with desired temperature, if it is more or less, then it will increase or decrease the temperature inside the refrigerator<br /><br />Int: How? how microprocessor reduce temperature?<br />Me: (Hoof! how? I thought whatever i may tell,right or wrong, lemme tell confidently) sir, microprocessor will reduce the voltage supplied to the cooler, so there will be less cooling and obviously temperature inside the refrigerator will increase.<br /><br />Int: solve this problem(he gave a sheet of paper, on it was this problem) 7 ltrs of water at 900c and 3 ltrs of water at 600c are mixed and what will be the final temperature at steady state? ( he then started to write comments on me on application form, i was acting like thinking, but actually i was looking at the comments he was writing down, he wrote good attitude, good ???, fair verbal skill)<br />Me:( i wrote V1T1=V2T2 ) around 75-80 sir.<br /><br />Int: How?<br />Me: Coz water at 90c is more in quantity, so it doesn't reduce much.<br /><br />Int: Wat if water at 60c is more?<br />Me: it will b come down to 65-70<br /><br />Int: Wat if both r of same quantity?<br />Me: It will be around 70-75<br /><br />Int: Ok,do u know C?<br />Me:s sir<br /><br />Int: Where it is practically used?<br />Me: (remember I-flex provide solutions to banking domain only) sir, it can be used to find interest and to program many other banking related problems<br /><br />Int: calculate interest for Rs.10k for 9months @ 5% RI<br />Me: ( wrote down the formula SI=PTR/100, and solved it)<br /><br />Int: If u r given to program a banking software, what r d things u r going to collect from customer?<br />Me: Told abt interest rate, period, principal amount<br /><br />Int: Dont u ask his name first?<br />Me: (both laughed)s sir, i will ask his DOB, place, nationality, age, occupation. they are all primary things<br /><br />Int:: Do u have any questions?<br />Me: Asked him abt training<br /><br />Then was HR round and lasted only for few seconds. The guy who gave PPT took me HR. He had said that we are looking for enthusiastic candidates during d PPT. when he called me out, i went in and he asked me to be seated. This is the time that i saw my aptitude test paper. Always keep a smile in HR interview. He came back n started seeing my application form<br />Int: y is it ur marks decreasing?<br />Me: I tried my level best sir...but....<br /><br />Int: (angrily) c, dont give such answers yaar<br />Me: (dint say anything kept smiling)<br /><br />Int: Whats d difference between C n C++ ?<br />Me: explained<br /><br />Int: any questions?<br />Me: (thats it?) ah .. s... sir.. again asked d dame question ant training and dragged it.<br /><br />Int: explained n said improve ur presentation skill,<br />Me: I will certainly do sir. when r u going to announce d results, sir?<br /><br />Int: I will call you (!!!) or i will inform placement officer, it was very nice talking to you, thx<br /><br />Finally results were announced at 6pm, only 10 got through!<br />BY,<br />ShriharaVikashttp://www.blogger.com/profile/10101804702065839305noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-78725904956316465.post-49926146610864479382008-09-06T14:19:00.001-07:002008-09-06T14:19:56.895-07:00iFlex Placement Paper-2nd AUGUST AT CHENNAIHi friends....i am Ratheesh....i-flex solutions came to our college for recruitment process on 2nd August, and on the same day the whole recruitment process was completed by conducting aptitude, technical and hr interview......<br />8 colleges participated in this process....nearly 700 appeared....<br /><br />The interview process goes like this......The 1st round started at 10.am<br /><br />APTITUDE-(50 questions-60 minutes)<br />There were 5 sections of 10 questions each.They include-English, Data interpretation, Data sufficiency, aptitude and Logical reasoning.
