Symbiosis National Aptitude Test (SNAP) is going to be held on 16th December 2018. And, from the last year onwards, the format of the exam has been changed to the online mode. The duration of this exam is of 2 hours and a total of 130 questions will be asked. The break-up goes like this: 35 questions each from the sections of English, Quantitative Aptitude & Data Sufficiency and Reasoning along with 25 questions from the section of Current Affairs. SNAP 2018 exam does not have any sectional cut-offs, which means that the candidates have the chance to play on their strength be it, Quant, LR/DI or English to maximise their score.
Also, here are some last minute preparation tips for each of the four sections:
Important! Please note that the SNAP GK syllabus is now restricted to last 2 years stories on current affairs. It gives the candidates an added advantage to boost their score by 25% in the SNAP 2018 exam. Now, you don’t need to go through a whole range of general awareness study material for preparation. Just focus on the current affairs of the past 2 years as most of the questions in this section are going to be asked from this time period. Make sure that you go through all the popular news stories of the past two years a few days before the exam so as to increase your chance of getting the top score in the exam.
Needless to say, English is probably the scoring section in SNAP entrance exam. Make sure to quickly go through some practice sets of verbal abilities and reading comprehension. Also, in the last few days, don’t forget to solve some antonyms and synonyms exercises. This will not only build up your vocabulary but also develop your communication skills for the personal interview process. And, you can revise such subjects on the go.
There’s no shortcut to this section of analytical and logical reasoning. This section is quite tough and requires continuous practice. We hope that you have carried out your preparation in the right way. Nevertheless, as a few days for the exam are left, what you can do is start solving some previous year SNAP exam paper, particularly the reasoning section as this will give you an upper edge and confidence before appearing for the final exam.
The quantitative ability and data sufficiency section requires constant practice. To ensure that your preparation is all good you must quickly go through the main formulas and memorize them by heart as they will help you to solve quant problems quickly a few days before the exam. Make sure that you revise the important formulas and do remember to solve 3 or 4 practice papers on Quantitative Ability and data sufficiency in the days leading up to the exam.
Wish you best of luck for the exam!
