Suggestions for people aspiring for such interns:

Brush up your coding skills and practice a lot before appearing for the test. Majorly, it’s your coding skills and knowledge of probability and stochastic processes that matters. Go online to websites and see mock interview questions on these topics.

For coding, go to geeksforgeeks and practice questions. Start as early as possible and gain as much information about the company as possible from the seniors or people already worked there.
