What to expect in coding test for prop trading job?

Recently got scheduled for Grad Trader role for Prop shop (one of Citsec, Akuna, DRW, Virtu). The instruction says that I will have a coderpad during the interview, but I have never done a live coding test for the trading role.

For anyone who had done interview with those shops, especially the coding interview, could you please give some examples of the questions the trader asked?

BTW: I've been solving hackerrank and leetcode problems ranging from easy~medium. I'm nowhere near the engineer level, and can do some average DFS/BFS, sorting, binary search, graph problems. I still have hard time doing the DP problems. Would be extremely appreciated if anyone could give advice on which contents to prepare.

Thanks in advance
