L&T INFOTECH PAPER & INTERVIEW - 13 MAY 2007 - MUMBAI
I am ANUPAM BAJPAI, 4th yr / 8th sem student of computer science engg. From ATMIYA INSTITUTES OF TECHNOLOGY, RAJKOT. I've been selected in L&T INFOTECH on 13th May. Thanks to all mighty God. My exam was conducted at L&T InfoTech walk-in at saki vihar Powai. There were near about 250 Student appeared / participated and finally only 21/24 (not sure) students were selected and I was lucky to be one of them.
We were told to report at 9:30 a.m on that day. Exam was scheduled after the normal mandatory certificate verification (*Most imp* criteria is reduced from 60% to 58% with o alive back-log /ATKT ) and then appti exam started at 10:00 and ended at 11:30a.m (90 Question in 90 min). The results of the written test of our batch was declared about 1 hrs. later. And then after 30 min the GD started an at about 15min GD was over and after 1 hour Hr interview started and at 7:00 pm in evening final results were declared.
The selection procedure consists of three parts.
1. Aptitude test
2. Group discussion or extempore (for me it was only Extempore)
3. H.R ( 90% case)
The Aptitude test was quite easy if you have already solved R.S Agarwal. All the questions were from the books of Agarwal. There were three sections in the aptitude part. The 1st section was quantitative aptitude, 2nd was verbal-non verbal reasoning, 3rd part was ENGLISH. Each section consisted of 30 questions. (***MOST IMP sectional cut-offs for each section***). Total allotted time was 90 mins, with 90 questions. So you have to be quick.
As far as I remember some of the quant. Questions..
1.A boat travels at 30k.m/hr upstream and 40 k.m/hr downstream.What is the speed of the boat in still water?
2.Man buys two xyz for Rs. 1250/- each. One is sold at 15% loss of actual value. At what price must 2nd article be sold to gain 25% overall?

The students who cleared the written test were then taken into a GD ROOM for the extempore. We were told to speak on any subject of our liking for 1 mins.
Careful, the topic must be such, that you have to give your opinion on that, rather than only describing it. The topics such as
'Effect of internet on India (MINE)',
'US policy to have two party system' etc.
the results were instantly declared. The selected candidates were then given a form to fill up and taken into another room for H.R which is not technical (90% true but if technical then don't worry it will not be hard).
