                            The test is the criterion for analytical companies. You’d need to be through with linear algebra or probability. CAT or JEE mathematics would help. Concentrate on Mathematics and English.

                            How you project your interns and projects is important. Finance is thousands of lines of code and numbers. Analytics is taking decisions from that data. Think loudly during the interview, since the final answer might not matter much.
