    Bio Statistician Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cytel Inc (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    There were 3 rounds - aptitude+statistics screening, technical interview and HR interview. Aptitude was really challanging and in my opinion, only those with serious preparation can clear that. Especially, deciding which questions to attempt is critical factor. Statistics questions were relatively easy and of undergraduate level.

    Technical round involves questions regarding core statistical concepts - statistical tests, survival analysis, logistic regression and odds ratio and most importantly- foundational statistical concepts like p-value and confidence interval, exploratory data analysis.

    Both technical and HR round were quite well and panel was positive.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cytel Inc (Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh (India)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    There was an online aptitude (IQ) test at first. Shortlisted candidates were called for interview. There were two very well behaved gentlemen at the interview panel. They interviewed me on my achievements and projects that I had mentioned in the CV and asked a few questions of their own. Overall it was very interactive and there was sharing of experience from both the ends of the table.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me questions varying from statistics (and R) to mathematics (related to optimization) to computer science (related to programming and data structures). They also gave me a few puzzles to solve for which, though a little brain scratching was required, they had been very helpful and supportive during the solving of those puzzles.   1 Answer
