infosys paper 2

Due to Gods grace I was one among them.

The Selection consists of 2 Phases :-
a) Written Test
b) HR Interview

In which, written test consists of two phases:-

1) APTITUDE:
30 questns in 40 minutes..
5 questns about arithmetical reasoning
5 questns on series completion (figure)
5 questns on puzzle test
5 questns on data interpretation (graphs)

2) Replace an underlined sentence with another one which is of the same meaning from the given 4 alternatives.
3) Fill in the blank with correct alternative. (REFER ANY GRAMMAR BOOK HAVING TENSES )
4) Deriving conclusion from small passages.
5 questns on data sufficiency…….. and rst I dnt remember as I am writing it after around 10 days of the test..but anwz aptitude section wz easy….jst R.S. Aggrwal is very much sufficient for written test I can say R.S.Aggarwal is sufficient for all companies written test. JUS GO THROUGH IT. IT'S REALLY HELPFUL.

2) Verbal Reasoning (English) :-
While answering questns u hav to keep the time in mind.... bcoz time management plays major role in these type of papers IN verbal section ur english knowledge is checked.
1) Two RC’s, a very big one and time consuming so attempt them at the end .(refer BARONS GRE )
5) Select the correct statement from the set of 4 statements. One is correct and some r with little grammatical mistake. .(REFER ANY GRAMMAR BOOK HAVING TENSES ) After Completion Of paper, Result is declared after 2hrs....and my name is in the list.

First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Appreciate it!
