Hi... Today we people got an email from the HR dept telling that the hostel fees have increased. Its 2000 Rs as before for shared rooms but for single bed rooms it has been increased to 2750 Rs.!!! My module test went fine today. Scored 70% but still not happy.

(More news inside.. )



Tomorrow NRN is coming to Mysore Campus. There is a cultural festival tomorrow and an award function to award the winners of various sports and cultural inter-DC competitions. There is a DJ night to end it all. But i will be busy preparing for my re-test for PF. I have my retest on thursday. But will go for NRN's speech.

    Hi

    Can you please elaborate all the pre joining formalities? There is an e-joining form and there is NSR. What else?

    Can we just fill the NSR form online and take a print out of it and do the rest of the formalities regarding NSR at Mysore?

    What exactly are we suppose to do with this NSR?

    Thanks.

    Hi Patel,
    You are doing a splendid job.My DOJ is 25th aug(Mysore) and the query is in the accomadation mail they have asked to submit the details regarding Vaccination.Is this mandatory to submit?

  7. Chintan Patel  

    @Archana..

    We are yet to be allotted a stream.. Generic training going on..

    @Anonymous..

    I cleared the Prog and testing module today..

    @Nisha..
    Here only ICICI atm is there but you can withdraw money for other cards also.. Even i have HDFC.. After the first month, you will get ur salary in ur ICICI account so no probs from then onwards..


    @Sarandeep..

    All that is decided at Bangalore but ya, i do think that people will get their DOJs soon as 2 batches are already called in sept and also may-june batches are completing their now...

  8. Chintan Patel  

    @Abhinav..
    Yes, you can do like that.. Infact i recommend doing it like that as here it is only 60 Rs while at any POS its 337 Rs.. So just bring a print out here..

    @Alex...

    No, vaccination is not at all mandatory...

    @All.. Thank you...

    @Anon..
    You cant use pendrives on their PCs.. They will know if you attach any hardware to their PCs...
    And i failed in the retest also.. It was too tough... Only about 3-4 people passsed from 70-75 sitting in my class for retest...

    Hi Chintan,
    Thanx for the answer.
    As we all know that after the regular training hours, there are loads of assignments given to be completed in very short interval and as i have read most of them comprise of programming tasks, i wanted to ask are these assignments tough and do they require high programming skills. If a person is average in programming then can he/she compelete those assignments comfortably and if not then is there some source of help for the trainees.
    And one more querry, are we allowed pen and paper to solve the module tests or is it all restricted.

  16. Chintan Patel  

    they are not that tough...


    yes, pen and paper are ofcourse allowed...

  17. Sandeep sharma  

    Hi chintan
    thanks for d details.
    And wat abt ur cgpa as u told u were not able to pass retest. So what happens next. BOL (best of luck)for retest.
    Nd u writen abt sports, is there chess. Nd when its sports week and competition

  18. Chintan Patel  

    @Sandeep..

    LOL.. if i had failed in retest then too you wish me best of luck for retest?? there is only one retest..

    Your CGPA is calculated based on the highest marks from the two tests..


    Yes, Chess is also there.. And the sports week is in November..

    @Chinthan

    I have done my NSR submission at mysore infy on 25th aug. But it cost me 340.

    I don't know where this news of 60 Rs spread from.

  20. Chintan Patel  

    @Abhijith...

    Yes, i too came to know about that..


    But it really was 60 Rs when the first batch joined on 26th May...

    @Anjali
    I had the same problem too and on calling the helpline i was asked to try again from a different computer...i just switched from firefox to internet explorer on my computer and it helped.
    1. Try clearing your browser cache and temporary files and try again.
    2. Else try switching to another web browser like i did.
    3. Or try logging in from a different pc.

    Hi..
    I was not able clear my Recompre in java stream n m into CLC now. I m afraid of going to Mysore again and complete my training.I feel reluctant to do both the generic and stream again as I was in Fast Track batch. what should I do?? I never learnt java before..I did that only in infy

  25. Chintan Patel  

    @Anjali Nair..

    Its ok. You can tell them about the problem and it would be fine...


    @Varuna...

    Hey, learning something again should not be such an issue. I would go into CLC if i was made to.

  26. Unknown  

    Hi Chintan,

    Its not about learning again..I am ready to do that..Its' just that I have been good in acaedemics all through my education.But here in infy I just could not cope up at all.All my batchmates cleared the compre but I alone was left out..Dnt know Y?? My compre also went well but again I could not get through..I am completely shattered..None of my closed ones could believe that either..I findidng it very hard to come out of it..n thinking about going there all alone fighting again makes me feel like walking on the fire barefoot.
    Just dnt know what to do... pls help me...

    Hello chintan h r u?
    Chintan r our parents allowed into campus on the date of joining?
    d how can we manage all the work going to GEC-hostel d again hostel-foodcourt as they r far apart frm each other.....(especially at nighttimes)

  28. Chintan Patel  

    @Varuna...

    Hmmm... It happens... There is nothing to worry in that. Even i am considered as a master in computer and was sure to be selected in Infy. But now i am struggling with grades. If i dont get a B+ in stream compre then my CGPA wont be 4. So its nice that at least you have another chance in CLC.

    @Prasanna...

    Sometimes they are allowed sometimes not. Sometimes HR mails us saying that no visitors will be allowed for this month and so.
    They are far but not so far as to make you feel exhausted. And also there are cycles everywhere... GEC to hostel is only about 5 mins of cycling.

  29. Unknown  

    Hey Chintan
    What if I am not able to clear it again..I won't be able to take it..I'll be completely shattered.Do they give training certificate? Will they give it even if I dnt go for CLC?
    Pls help me...My life is in a mess...

  30. Chintan Patel  

    @Varuna...

    I am not a life coach or something... Even its unbelievable for people who know me that i am on the verge of being thrown out of infy but that doesnt make it unbearable for me. Why would they give you a certificate if you dont go in CLC???

  31. karthick  

    plz help me. am gonna join infosys by nov 2009. an fron non it dept (EEE) . can anyone tell me for what we're selected. some sy its for .net, some say its for j2ee etc. can anyone tell me whats gonna be our specialisation

  32. Chintan Patel  

    @Katik...

    Its not decided in advance. Even they dont know for what they have selected you for and there is no specific stream that non-CS/IT or IT people get. There is no differentiation based on graduation branch in allotting the streams.

  33. karthick  

    thanks a lot chintan. can u still tell me what all streams are there

  34. Chintan Patel  

    @Katik...

    There are several streams like .NET, Java, Open Systems, Mainframes, Finacle, Business Intelligence, PLES etc.

  35. karthick  

    hiiiii chintan, how are you,,
    please help me out with this.am posted as systems engineer in infosys.. what does this posting mean. what work will i've. please help me the earliest. thanks

  36. Chintan Patel  

    @Katikthekat...

    Only the name of the designation has changed and not the role. Everything else remains the same. You will still be a software engineer.

  37. karthick  

    thanks chintan. thanks. cool. can u tell me any books to prepare now so that it'll be easier for me in the training

  38. Mamta S  

    Chintan: I guess you would have already cleared the training.. Haven't you? :)

    HI!!!

    hai iam ramesh.
    iam from mechanical engineering,i got selcted in infosys through a campus drive in our college.iam from andhrapradesh. as iam from non it back ground,what are the courses i should learn before joining infy. iam currently learning hyperworks which is one of mechanicl core software,shall i continue learning it or learning something else like jave etc.iam in big dillemma.how do they treat non it students,are there any exemptions given to non it students,what is the salary during training they pay. is it safe to join infy or not as iam from a non it background possesing average skills.

  42. gorby  

    i just recieved my call letter from infosys.. my DOJ is aug 1. i saw some posts about an E-joining form here. wat is that? ive got my PAN and my passport.. ive got my certificates & marklists... wat all things r left for me to do before joining other than my NSR registration?

  43. Chintan Patel  

    @Ramesh…

    Learn C language first and then Java. Your hyperworks knowledge will most probably not used there.

    There is no difference in the "treatment" of IT and non-IT and everyone is considered the same for the company but yes, the training course is slightly different as IT students are assumed to be more familiar to some aspects of programming than non-IT students.

    Your in-hand salary during training will be about 14k per month.

    You should only join Infy if you think you like programming and can learn it. You need to have an interest in programming.

    @Gorby…

    Dont bother about e-joining if you did not receive a mail from Infosys about that. E-joining is basically just scanning your results and uploading on their site which you will anyways have to do after joining so its not so important.

    Hy,
    Any hopes for job in SEO department.....????

  45. Chintan Patel  

    @Milan...

    Virtually no chance because i have not heard of Infosys having an SEO dept. and even if they do, the size would be very small.

    @all
