Hi friends, This is Bipin Kadiri (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 ???

"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..
