Today was the last module re-test for us. I had already passed in the first test but there were many people in our class who had already failed in 2 re-tests before and so it was the last chance for them to stay with Infosys.

Most of them managed to pass but I have heard of people who have failed also. I personally know about 10 people who will have to leave because they failed in 3 module re-tests. Compre results are pending and there are people like me who have not failed in more than 2 module re-tests but need a B+ in compre to make CGPA above 4.


So there would be some more people who will be asked to leave after compre result is out. Overall, i estimate about 20-30 people would be asked to leave from our class. (Our class is of 200). So that means the exit rate is about 10-15%.

Dont panic after reading the above paragraph because there are also some people who have already thought of doing some other job and have known that software is really not their forte. Such people either leave midway or just drag along till they get into a situation where they are asked to leave.

The purpose of this post is to tell you people to be serious about training if you want to stay at Infosys and not just be at Infosys. The training is not tough but you need to work hard. Dont take it for granted, especially non-CS-IT people.

From .NET class of our batch, 7 people are asked to leave. (They have a class of 100). So overall, my prediction of the exit rate is approximately 10%.

    @Frens 4ever...

    I dont know about that but i dont think ur DOJ would be extended further than January.

    Now there are no fast track, so maybe the hostels are occupied for a longer time...

    @Prashu....

    Training is of 4 months for all. You will be on bench for sure in the beginning because anyways, you wont understand anything if you are put in project straightaway. Some studying still needs to be done after training to be good enough for production and for that you will be put on bench and made to learn about the project that you will be allocated.
