Hi!

Here is what I know about the test.

It’s a multiple choice: 3 sections (stats, R, Python) with 12 questions each.

  • Stats: mostly consist of chi-square, t-tests, ANOVA etc along with some basic calculations;
  • R: you need to be proficient in R to perform well. Example of a question: you get a dataset in R, do some manipulations and choose the correct output in the Mcq – keep RStudio open and maybe also a Jupyter notebook or any of your preferred python ide;
  • Python: You need to be proficient in Python to perform well.

Hope this helps!

Best,
Daniel
