Interview Process
Other Interview Stress Interview
Round 1

Other Interview

Interview Experience
First round of interview will be some basic stuff like multiplication of 3 by 3 digits ,no big divisions. One should be confident enough to answer the question.
Interview Tips
Brush up your basic calculation skills. Watch placement grid. (An initiative by NIT Jaipur students where they will upload videos about their experience)
Round 2

Stress Interview

Interview Experience
Basically, they want to see your reaction in challenging time. I had no clue about trade mogul and I became a bit tensed in second round, which is why I think I didn't get placed.
Interview Tips
Always read about companies few days before sitting in it. There is an event TRADE MOGUL which is conducted by future first. Do participate in it.
Resources

Preparation materials

Books
  • Go through some standard aptitude book. (I found Arun Sharma cat book was the best),
General Tips
This company had the lowest pointer cutoff among those that came in the first two months. It was 5 last time. So almost 400 sat for first round and in first round they gave 30 basic mathematics calculations which one has to do in only 5 minutes. 70 got shortlisted for next round which had cat LEVEL APTI questions. It had 30 questions. If you are seriously interested in stock markets then this is the place worth trying for.
