Exam : InfyTQ Screening Test
Verdict : Selected
So, I’m going to share my experience of the screening test round of InfyTQ certification exam, which by the way is also of the best opportunity for engineering graduates to secure a job at Infosys. But, before I begin with my experience, I would like to share the screening test pattern which goes as:
Total Questions = 20 (from python/java programming) + 10 (from Database Management Systems) + 10 (from Aptitude and Quants) = 40
The screening round of infytq works as a knockdown round which has to be qualified in the first attempt only and with a time limit of 1 hour. The questions mostly comprised of the following topics:
Questions mainly focused on code snippets for which, outputs were to be guessed or dry-run of the code is required. The main topics that were asked are Concepts of OOPs (Object Oriented Programming), Data Structures like Linked Lists, Queue and Stack, File Handling, Algorithms like Binary Search, Linear Search, Bubble Sort, Selection Sort, Insertion Sort, Hashing etc.
Questions mainly focused on SQL queries that operated on various Join operations, Group by clause, Aggregate functions and Built-in SQL procedures. Also, one question based on CRUD operations in MongoDB.
The questions were mostly based on topics like time & work, mixture & allegations, percentage, average, ratio, probability and permutations and combinations.
So, here’s how my experience was:
Since, the screening test is a one-chance-knockout-round with questions having difficulty from medium all the way up to hard, I mostly focused on the python & DBMS part as these comprise of a total of 75% of the test. Most of the questions were either lengthy or quite difficult to solve. The approach that I followed was that first I filtered out 8 questions from python, 4 from DBMS and 4 from aptitude section. Once done, I proceeded again with this time 4 questions from python and 2 questions each from DBMS and aptitude. To be honest, using this technique helped me to clear out the maximum questions with a huge time advantage. So, by this procedure I was able to attempt 30 questions in total out of which, based on the last time I checked, I had 29 correct answers.
All in all, I was quite satisfied with my performance. On the day of judgement, I checked my InfyTQ dashboard status and I had qualified the test.
Now, there were a number of sources that I used to prepare for the test including this very website “codeofgeeks.com” as well as Mock tests & assessments from InfyTQ site and a lot of practice sets from wherever I could find one.
