    Here are some last time preparation tips for each of the four sections:

    General Awareness

    Important! Please note that the SNAP GK syllabus is now restricted to last 2 years stories on current affairs. It gives you an added advantage to boost your score by 25% in the upcoming SNAP exam 2017. 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 past 2 years as most of the questions in this section are going to be asked from this time period. Therefore, as few days are left, quickly go through the popular news stories of the past two years and stand a chance to get high score in the exam.

    General English

    Needless to say, English is probably the scoring section in SNAP entrance exam. Make sure to quickly go through some practice sets in 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.

    Analytical & Logical reasoning

    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 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.

    Quantitative Ability and data sufficiency

    It is generally seen that SNAP test lays strong importance on the arithmetic questions. And, this section requires constant practice. Now, what you can do is quickly go through the main formulas and memorize them by heart as they will help you to solve quant problems quickly. So, as few days are left, make sure to revise the important formulas and do remember to solve 3 or 4 practice papers on Quantitative Ability and data sufficiency.
