To apply for InfyTQ I registered on their website and from there selected a date for the exam. They had the option to select either Python or JAVA as their preferred language. I chose Python as it is my most comfortable programming language.
InfyTQ had two rounds:- Certification round and Advantage round.
Round 1:- Certification Round.
Certification Round is the first round of InfyTQ. This round was conducted for 3 hours.
Certification Round Online Test Pattern:-
|Name Of The Section
||Number Of Questions
|Programming( JAVA or Python)
The programming questions were of moderate level.
One question was based on array, and the second was a matrix based question.
In the MCQ questions there was no negative marking which was a huge relief. In previous editions they had negative markings.
This is an optional round that we could attend if we clear Certification Round and fulfil some other criteria. I got shortlisted for this round and decided to appear for it, as clearing this round we could get shortlisted for the profile of Specialist Programmer.
The advantage round was a hands-on coding round where we had to solve 3 questions in 3 hours. The three questions had different weightage.
Previously Atulya Sir had mentioned that the third question carries 100 marks so I had in mind to solve that question properly.
There was one Dynamic Programming question, one question based on Greedy Algorithm and one pointer question in Data Structure Algorithm.
I was able to solve the first and third question completely. The second question was not very difficult, however due to time constraints, I could only solve it partially.
Once the exam was over, we were told to wait a few days for the results.
I got an email that I had cleared the Advantage Round and I was invited to attend the interview.
Infosys conducts only one interview round, so I prepared extensively for it. PrepInsta’s interview preparation courses helped me a lot.
The interviewer was very kind and polite. I was having some internet issues, but he was very patient throughout the process.
The interview started with him introducing himself. He then explained in brief about his journey at Infosys and about the company.
He then asked me certain questions. I have listed the questions below.
- Introduce yourself.
- How was your InfyTQ exam experience?
- How did you prepare yourself for the InfyTQ exam?
- He asked me if I remembered any of the coding questions, I said yes. He then asked me to explain to him the question and how I solved it. I asked him if I needed to write the code. He said no, and only asked about the approach.
- Since you used Python as your programming language, what other programming languages are you familiar with?
- If you are asked to work on say Java or C, will you be able to do it?
- Can you tell me about your final project?
- What was the most difficult part in creating this project?
- If you could, what technology would you like to work with? Why?
- Any questions for me?
I asked him for feedback on my interview. However he told me that he would not be able to share that, and I could only know that based on the results. He however mentioned that depending on this interview I could get shortlisted for any of the 3 profiles (SP,DSE,SE).
I thanked him for that and the meeting ended.
I honestly thought that I might have made a bad impression with the last question. However some days later I got to know that I was selected for the role of Digital Specialist Engineer, and honestly that was the best day of my life.
For anyone appearing for InfyTQ, I hope my InfyTQ Interview Experience will help you. Best of luck.
