InfyTQ Interview Experience for SP Profile
InfyTQ is a certification exam that Infosys conducts for pre-final year students. It is basically like a coding competition and if you perform well you can bag a high paid job in Infosys.
I got selected for the profile of Specialist Programmer. I am sharing my entire InfyTQ interview experience with you, and I hope it helps.
I had already heard about these competitions that Infosys conducts, so I started preparing for it in advance. I was following PrepInsta and they had these quizzes on InfyTQ, which I started practising. They also had youtube videos on various InfyTQ topics which I practised.
Then InfyTQ got announced. I registered for the exam. In the registration process you basically need to create an account and register for the exam. Then they will ask you to book a test slot according to your need, and choose the preferred programming language (Java/Python). I had selected Java.
In InfyTQ, there were two rounds:-
- 10 MCQs from your selected programming language(I chose Java)
- 2 hands on coding questions(java)
- 10 MCQs on DBMS
- 3 hours
- No sectional timing
- 3 questions
- Whatever language we select in the first round, the same language we need to use here as well.
Round 1:- InfyTQ Certification Round
The certification round was pretty easy to solve. Along with PrepInsta’s quizzes, there were sample tests on InfyTQ website which I also used and prepared from.
Round 2:- Advantage Round
So in InfyTQ, if we can clear the certification round we automatically become eligible to give an interview for the System Engineer profile. It is not a necessity to attend Advantage round, However if we can score good marks in advantage round we can attend the interview for DSE or SP. I was pretty confident in my coding skills, so I opted for the advantage round.
There were 3 questions in the exam. One of the questions that I remembered was a palindrome question.
For a given number innum, identify the palindrome formed by performing the operations given below:-
- Add innum and its reverse.
- Check whether the sum is palindrome or not. If not, add the sum and its reverse and repeat the process until a palindrome is obtained.
Round 3:- Interview Round for SP Profile:-
I cleared the advantage round and got selected for the interview. The interview lasted for around 40 minutes. Interviewer asked me many technical questions.
Depending on the performance in this round, we could get placed in either of the three profiles(SP,DSE or SE).
My interviewer was a senior member of the company. He introduced himself and went straight into the questions.
I got the impression that he would be tough to impress, so I tried my best to answer each one of his questions to perfection.
