Infosys Mysore Training Experience In A Nutshell

The four days of induction was pretty boring with sleepy eyes all around. Though the HR anchors tried their very best to keep us attentive, some of us managed to get past the firewall for a quick nap. Then started the Generics. C, Java, RDBMS kept us busy for more than a month.
With tests every week, life was both fun and of tension. Imagine a situation where you have clicked on the submit button for evaluation and Dev Square takes its own sweet time to calculate and show your score as either 64% (1 less than passing marks) or 75% . Those were really tense moments and Infosys training is more or less associated with the name Dev Square. Even for hands on exams, Dev Square crawled to find logical errors. May be there was a single error in your code and Dev Square proudly showed 56 errors; that almost took out your soul from you. But also my happiness knew no bounds when Dev Square failed to point a single mistake, which meant I scored full marks. I gave a sly smile and told Dev Square – “better luck next time” and then with a sense of relief left the exam hall.
I was put into Intermediate because I had 2 marks less than 75% in the first module (75% in each module is required for getting into Fast Track). No, I was not sad! When you come to such an wonderful campus you don’t desire to leave it so early. I was more than happy to be in Intermediate. Intermediate was more of fun and classes got over earlier. Teachers were less strict and unless you have any re-tests Intermediate is a time where you can have all the fun in the campus.
I was assigned to Dot Net stream. Schedules were same, however, life was difficult. There were loads of assignments, without which it would be impossible to score in hands on. But now Dev Square was missing. For hands on exam, we had manual evaluation where the faculty used to test your code and adherence to QP. I clearly remember that in C# hands on though I had my program running fine and giving the perfect output, half of the total marks was deducted. Reason – I deviated from the QP! Perception (or MCQ) was pretty easy if you had studied the slides properly. Unlike the generics where some good concept was required to answer the questions, in stream the questions were pretty straight forward.
Those six months were undoubtedly the best part of my life. Mysore DC will always remain in my heart, not as the place where I started my professional life but as a place which stood up and showed the world what dedication, hard work and perseverance can do!

  1. Hi samrat
    not sure if you would read this blog.
    but my kid is getting bored with the dot net coding at the Mysore DC. She has just joined the stream.Though she was ok with coding at the beginning. She did her b.Tech -electronics & computers.
    is there a way for her to change the stream now ?
    Pls. share some hints to make the dot net coding interesting.

    1. Apologies for the late reply. The best way to make her like it is to make her understand what miracles it can do. In a way dot net coding is easier than java. So, she needs to spend more time and I am sure she will like it.

    1. Hi Aditi, yes on weekends you can stay out for the whole day and come back on monday morning in time for the class.But I would suggest you to be back in the campus by sunday evening.

      On weekdays, you can stay out only till 8 PM AFAIK

    1. It’s a tough time for many like you I realize. I would suggest to take it seriously and give more time to your studies. Try and be thorough with the assignments. When it comes to hands on ensure that you do all of them and you have properly understood all of them. Most people try to get 100% in the hands on exam. So concentrate on it. With regards to Perception, ensure that you understand all that is written in the slides. In many slides you would find footnotes, many a time questions are directly asked from those sections. All the best!

  8. what fast track means... ?? suggest me the topics to study..

    1. Hi Akash, fast track is when you directly get to stream training without having to undergo Intermediate.

      Be thorough with C Java and DBMS. Take the classes seriously and complete your assignments daily.

  11. hello sir,
    I am a cse student recently placed in infosys in a placement drive. I don't have good programming skills. I fear about surviving infosys training period. What programming languages and streams do infosys training mainly entails? Is it necessary for me to go for any programming classes for now.Or is infosys training alone sufficient?

    1. Hi Alana, apologies for the late response. If you are sitting idle at home, its always good to utilize your time and when you are aiming at IT industry, why not learn some programming languages like C, Java/.net. Also get to know OOP concepts. There are various streams but its always good to get your basics correct which will help you to grasp streams better. Dont worry, they teach you, your only job is to learn and you get paid for learning

  13. Hello sir
    I just want to ask that what is the minimum time that infy gives to the trainees who couldn't clear the modules?
    Are they sent back within a month?
    As per the new training procedure.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. As far as I know, once you fail to clear, you go for a retest and if you fail you for retraining. In case you fail in retraining, you are sent back! Dont be pessimistic, be optimistic, 99% people clear the trainings and I am sure you will be in the majority

  14. Hi!

    1. Assignments are mostly hands on based. They guide you through to how to approach real life problems. Exams are of two types - one is perception which is MCQ the other is hands on which is similar to the assigments

    1. Hi Anshul, there is no truth in the CSE students being called only in Jan and non-CSE in June or July. I would not be able to confirm your question on internships. Again... no, fast track is given to all those employees whose performance is excellent during the 1st stage of the training.
