New Infosys Mysore Training Format and Assessment



Hi All,

As we're receiving a lot of queries regarding the change in Infy Mysore Training format and pattern. we've come up with this post to give you some idea regarding the same.

However this information is not official info and has been collected from current trainees in y Mysore Infy.


So here are the few important facts about the new Training format/pattern :

1.The unit responsible for training E&R (Education and Research ) is changed to ETA (Education, Training and Assessment). The new unit will be responsible for sessions and Evaluation.

2. Duration of training has been reduced to 3 months.

3, The Generic and Stream courses have been modified and include following subjects :
  • Object Oriented Programming (Algorithm analysis and Java)
  • RDBMS (SQL with Oracle)
  • Software Engineering(SDLC, HTML)
  • Operating Systems
  • Spring, Mainframes (For Stream Only)


Training Pattern for Generic (unofficial) :

  • Java (7days) - (Objective - 50 marks, Hands-on - 20 marks, Alternate Hands-on -30marks)
  •  RDBMS (6days) - (Objective - 50marks, Hands-on - 50 marks)
  • Software Engineering (6days) - (Objective - 50 marks, Hands-on - 20 marks, Alternate Hands-on -30marks)
  • Qualifying Score in each module is 65%
  • Only One Retest will be conducted If you fail the above Exams.
  • 7days will be given for retest preparation (including 2 doubt clearing sessions)
  • If you fail in the retest you'll be asked to leave the company.


     So from the above facts you can get a good idea about how the difficulty level of Training has increased. Trainees will hardly get  any time to adjust, so its better to be prepared with the Generic subjects before you join Infosys Mysore Training.

Complete Guide on How to prepare Infosys Service Agreement



                         

The Service Agreement is an integral part of your Document Checklist for Infosys Mysore. It defines every vital parameter related to our Job and as such this document must be prepared  accurately and correctly. Some common questions that arise when preparing a Service Agreement are - How to format and print the service Agreement? Should we use stamp paper or legal sheets? What signatures do we need? 
Through this post we'll get answer to all these questions and will prepare our Service Agreement correctly.



Guidelines For Preparing Service Agreement

1. The 1st step is to convert the .pdf file into word (.doc or .docx) file. It is advisable to change the size of the word document to A4 size.

2 (a). As it is being instructed to make a stamp paper of Rs. 200, so it will be fine if you make two stamp papers of Rs.100 each. Two stamp papers because you have to break the 1st page of the Service Agreement into two parts as the stamps will cover around 5inches of space in the paper. Then print the 1st page in those stamp papers.

NOTE - The cost of the stamp papers should be minimum of Rs. 200, you can also use more than that.

2 (b). Then the next four pages of the Service Agreement can be printed in normal A4 size papers or green-colored A6 size papers (legal sheets) as they are used for legal purposes. 

2 (c). The alternative method is to get the whole Service Agreement printed in A6 legal sheets (or A4 sheets) and the get the Legal sheets stamped (franked) with the stamp duty of Rs. 200.

3. And the most important thing is, in every page at the end you have to leave the space for signatures of COMPANY, ENGINEER and SURETY (and that is mandatory). So while dividing the 1st page into two parts in the stamp papers be sure to copy-paste the signatures (otherwise you have to purchase the stamp papers once again).

4. One thing if by some means you are unable to copy the company signature then not to worry, they would sign it on the date of joining at Mysore. But do not forget to leave spaces for it mentioning signatures.

5. Next is the notarization part, for which you don’t have to take a headache now. You can easily get it notarized on your date of joining.

KEY POINTS TO REMEMBER -

1. Candidate Id-[[8-digit no. provided earlier in the Offer letter]

2. Employee no.- Leave it blank,  Year: FY -  Leave it blank if you're confused about the Year, it can always be entered later.


3. a. Signature on all the pages from surety and trainee is mandatory, even though the contents are spilled to next page.

b. Three Witness Signatures is required. Witness can be as follows

  • The first witness should be from HRD. Get it signed on your Date of Joining. 
  • The second witness can be your Family member / Blood relative. 
  • The third witness has to necessarily be friend or colleague.
  • Surety needs to be Father / Mother / Legal Guardian

OBJECTIVE TESTS : 
-----------------

  




 For objective part, we were given 2 hours or 2.30 hours[exactly I don’t remember], whatever time span might be, it was enough to complete the objective and that too we completed it comfortably, so don’t worry about that. Objective part comprised of  questions, based on 5 subjects –Java, RDBMS, OS, IWT and Software Engineering.  However one should keep in mind that for every wrong answer there is a negative marking of 0.25 too. The standard of objective questions was the same like your “Post Test”. (Apart from that, a sample question paper will also be uploaded after the completion of your course in that portal, so that one can refer it later).

Java: - Questions related to java were very simple, based on basics/fundamentals [very important, get your fundamentals clear]. Most of the questions were output related. Very few questions were theoretical.

RDBMS: - Questions asked in RDBMS section were of average standard. Most of the questions were based on queries. Some of the questions were based on output covering both queries and PL/SQL. It is highly essential that you should have clear knowledge about queries and proper syntax of pl/sql statements else you may get confuse .

OS: - Questions in this section were very easy. Some questions were direct and theoretical while others were numerical; yes you need to do some calculations. One should have clear knowledge about all concepts mentioned in the study material. Please don’t ignore any numerical, there is a high probability that you may face more numerical than simple and direct theoretical questions. Please solve ample problems related to process scheduling and page replacement algorithms as it is a very important section of  OS, you may get maximum questions from that.

IWT: - You will get simple and direct questions. There are few sections which you should take care of like network topologies, architecture, protocols, and load balancing. You should not face any problem in this section.

S.E-In this section you will get simple and direct questions. Please read thoroughly “software development life cycle”, various life cycles, quality.These are important topics of SE.

Now let’s move onto practical section:
First of all, we had to configure our systems as all systems are connected to LAN and we had to operate on servers. [Don’t worry, they will be instructing and guiding you throughout the process.]

Please note that, one has to code java programs using ECLIPSE and for RDBMS we have to use Oracle ( SQL plus). If one doesn’t have any idea about these, then please download and start using them as no other alternative will be given.

HANDS-ON/Practical ----------------------

      



It is quite interesting to know that this part is an open book meaning you will be provided with reference materials for in case u forgot syntax or faced any problem, you can refer it anytime. Time limit for “hands on” is 2 hours.

Java:- Again, question was very simple[Like we were given an interface and had to implement that interface in a class]. I would suggest you all, please read the question at least 2 times in order to understand the need of question because question will be very long and you may not get it in one go. All requirements will be given in the question itself, you just need to follow and code it. A class diagram would also be given stating what and how to implement. Believe me, it’s like skeleton is already being provided to you, you just need to give flesh (logic) in order to bring it in a proper shape. A simple tip I would like to give that try to break the question in to small parts/steps and code it in a sequence as per mentioned in the question satisfying the requirements. I think, you will find it easier this way.

In order to test your code whether it is OK or not, you will need a demo class or a class containing main method with/without values. This class will be given to you beforehand along with “files supplied”. One should be conscious about time factor as java programs will consume maximum of your time, so one should manage time efficiently. You need to submit error free and compiled code, it is a must. Please try to implement simple logic as far as possible; else you will get confuse by yourself only.

RDBMS: - Question related to RDBMS had 2 parts…
First part had 3 queries based questions. You have to make queries on table which may be pre-given (previously present on server) or you may have to create it by yourself as specified in the question. As in my case code to create the table was already been given in the question paper along with the data, we just had to “copy-paste” it (not a big deal).These query based question may be simple and direct/complex and tricky. So pay undivided attention to that while solving. If all goes well, it will take hardly 10 minutes to execute all three questions.

Then comes second part in which you have to code a pl/sql program. Like java, all requirements will be specified in question paper; you just need to code it. Be assured that pl/sql program will be easier as compared to sql or queries related questions.
After completing everything you will be asked to submit your java source code files and RDBMS source files .For RDBMS, you have to first write and execute commands, if it works fine then you just needs to copy and paste it in a text file, at the end you have to submit it.

Please keep it mind that you need to follow /adhere to all business conventions way of coding.
Few suggestions:

1) Please maintain a note while watching videos or studying material, it will help you in quick revision.
2) Please solve assignments of Java and RDBMS; it will help you a lot.
3) Please while watching videos pay your full attentions, as narrator may tell some points orally and you may miss it.
4) Please go through videos as well as study materials because some topics which are in videos are not covered in PDF and vice versa.
