I talked about my dissertation for the acquiring data (e.g. lit review, survey design and data collection) and my analyst role on placement (e.g. understanding why the analysis had to be done, keeping the stakeholder/ customers involved throughout and offering follow up advice once the project/needs had been met)

You know for the test, what level of Maths knowledge should you have?

Is it beyond S1(A Level Maths)?

Yeah that's what I thought as well, by doing it earlier.
There was a mixture of log, regression, confidence interval, standard deviation and percentage type questions on there. It seemed harder than S1.
