3I INFOTECH PAPER ON 16th SEPTEMBER 2007
Hi friends, (SVMIT Bharuch 2007 passout ), I am going to share my experience with you about the interview of 3i-infotech.
I wrote the written test on the 16th of september 2007. The written test is quite simple.You have to just practise the standard 2 books of R.S.Agarwal (quant aptitude & logical reasoning) once thats it.
There were will be three sections of 50 questions each: 1.Logical Reasoning 2.Quantitative aptitude 3.English The test will be of 90 minutes duration.So fast calculation is important. A neagative marking of 0.25 marks for every wrong answer is there.so please be careful in that matter..
One more imp thing the questions both aptitude as well as GD & interview are ALL REPEATED
So compulsorily go through the kind of questions mentioned here
Section 1: English usage
In this there was a paragrap, nearly 400 words, about regularization of banking acts. On basis of this para there was q,s . These are as follows-
--> 10 direct q,s relataed to para
--> 3 Synoyms(Contemporay, Resilence etc.)
--> 3 Antonyms
--> 9 q,s were based on fill in d blanks
On an aveage all d synonyms n antonyms were very easy and day to day conversational use. These synonyms and antonyms were given in bold in d para.
While solving this type para plz keep in mind that one time reading with better comprehension is nt only helpful, bt u have o use regression. ( this is very tough I suggest u to do this later )
Remaining 15 q,s were based on finding out grammatical error(u can see in any cat/ mat preparartion book).
Some questions were of the type Jumbled sentences ( u construct a meaningful paragraph) On these some were diifficult.
I suggest you not to attempt the questions based on the para first ( do only synonyms and antonyms ) and do the remaining ques first coz para is too tough and u will end up wasting ur time .
In this section i did 35 q,s.
Section 2 : Reasoning
--> Do a lot of questions from VENN DIAGRAMS RS Agarwal ( there will be atleast 5 qs of this type ) for eg : All shirts are clothes all clothes are garments some garments are blue and so on ......
--> caselet based sitting arrangement
--> q,s based on Blood Relation(if A+B stands for A is father of B , A-B stands for Ais bro of B......... then what is A-B*c so on )
--> q,s based on critical resoning(like all banana,s are mango, some mangoes are chilli then conclude...)
--> q,s based on series. In this you have to find out odd one in he series.( very imp all from RS Agarwal )
-> Some on coding decodingg
--> Some were slightly different. These were like -- 5 different nos were given and said that 1 is added to the first digit of all numbers and 1 is subtracted from the middle digit. then Find out the second largest n so on.
--> Some were Data Sufficiency
--> Some questions were like 7@8 #6=50 ( very important )
So what is 9@7#3 == ?? (ie 7*8=56- 6=50) so ( 9*7=63 -3 =60 )
I did around 17 questions in this section
Section 3 : Arithmetic
In this topic on which Q,s were based, is as -
1. Probab -- 5 q,s, in this q like--- there are different balls in a bag as3-green, 5-blue, 7-red. 6-black then find out the probab of getting 2 red balls, gtting at least 1 gren ball while picking up 3 balls n so on.
2. Series Completion- 5 q (Entirely from RS Agarwal)
3. Simplification-10-12 q, as (1) if 12.48 / ? / 56.4 = 12.3 then find ? and so on
(Only calculation based but very easy ----------- must attempt)
4. Compound Interest -1q (Direct Formula)
5. Trains speed-1q as, A train crosses a platform of length double of its length, in 30 sec. Find speed of train.(Ans- can not determined)
6. Data Interpretation- 15 q, 2tables and 1 pie chart, vey easy just calculation basis.(but very lengthy)
7. Do the ques of linear equations , profit & loss and ratio and proprtion also.
All depends on UR CALCULATION SPEED.
So start mental calculation from today it will help u in this and other papers as well.
All d Best..
I did around 20 questions in this section
Total around 65-70 questions were sufficient to put me n my friends thru The results were out on 12th of October.. Then we were called for GD and interview on 27th of October.
First, i would like to tell you about the GD.
My topic was Role of press is it invading our privacy ???
there were other topics like "Cricket is a national obsession that is a detriment to other sports". "Politics can a person be corruption free in politics" "should celebrities participate in commercials". SPORTS tooo much importance to cricket diversity in India is it hampering unity leaders are born or made ???
I was selected in GD also..GD is also okay..You have to be confident and atleast speak..but never keep mum.. Make three valid points atleast..Do not stick on only one point throughout the discussion..that also matters.. Whether u speak for the topic or against that is immaterial. .if points are good,think that you have cleared your GD. In a batch,out of 12, (4-5) of were selected... Coming to interview,mine was just HR but to computer & IT guys there were a few tech questions
There will be a sir and a madam They asked me: descirbe urself ( dont say my name is ... and I got xy percent instead say I would like to introduce myself as a hardworking induvidual etc )
do u have a valid passport ?
y do you want to wrok in software side ?
r u willing to sign bond ?
what r ur hobbies ?
what was ur take in the GD ? a little bit regarding my academic project..
what is sdlc?the steps involved in the same ur strengths and weaknesses justification for the same ...
why are u leaving ur existing company?
Family background ?
where u see 5 years from now ?
Do u wish to relocate? (ans should be yes definitely i love travelling )
where do u find urself after 3 years from now?
what was ur role in the previous company?
are u ready to work in any kind of profile?
what is IT according to you? Then they asked me if i have any questions..
I just asked what will be my role in the company if i get selected.. Thats it..The intvw is simple.You have to be confident.Thats it..
