SNAP 2022 Phase 2 Exam Analysis - IMS

SNAP – Phase  2  had no major changes in pattern or difficulty level from the first slot. The duration of the exam was 60 minutes with 3 Sections.  

The overall pattern and the level of difficulty as reported by IMS students are given below along with the IMS suggestion of time allocation per section:

Section Number of questions Level of difficulty Good Attempts Suggested time (in minutes)
General English: Reading Comprehension, Verbal Reasoning, Verbal Ability 15 Easy 13-14  13-14
Analytical & Logical Reasoning 25 Easy  20-22 24-26
Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency 20 Medium 14-15 20-22

Each question carried 1 mark. There was a negative marking of – 0.25 for each incorrect answer.  There was no sectional time limit.

Verdict

Based on the feedback received from students and IMS experts who took the test in Phase 2, we estimate the scores and the corresponding percentiles required to secure a call for the next round of admissions for General Category students to SIBM-Pune, SCMHRD, SIIB, and SIBM-Bengaluru as follows

Raw Score for SNAP Dec 2022 Test Percentile
40-42 98 percentile ( for SIBM -Pune)
38-40 97 percentile ( for SCMHRD)
34-35 90 percentile ( for SIIB & SIBM Bengaluru)

The above estimate is based on the feedback received on Phase 2. The scores and percentiles may change subject to the other slots. Slot 3 is due to take place on 23rd December 2022. 

Analysis of sections:

General English

The General English section of SNAP-2022 was easy like Slot 1. There were no RC questions. All questions were on Verbal Ability.  

Following was the break-up of the questions in the section:

Question types Number of questions Level of difficulty
Compound Word 1 Easy
FIB (Grammar) 6 Easy
Synonym 1 Easy
Poem-based 1 Easy
Idioms 2 Easy
Identify the statement that makes a request 1 Easy
Tense, Voice, Suffix 3 Easy

The General English section was dominated by Grammar questions. There were questions on synonyms (1 question), idioms (2 questions) and compound words (1 question). There was also a poem-based question where one had to identify the line with the correct order of words. In Grammar, fill in the blanks and other miscellaneous questions were asked which tested knowledge of various parts of speech, tenses, active-passive voice, suffixes, etc. There was one question that required one to identify the sentence that made a request.  No RC questions were asked which made the section less time-consuming. 

Since the section was overall easy, one could attempt 13 or 14 questions with high accuracy in about 13 or 14 minutes. 

Analytical & Logical Reasoning

Out of the 25 questions in this section, 10 questions were on Verbal Reasoning and the remaining 15 were on Non-Verbal Reasoning. 

The questions on Verbal Reasoning included 1 on Critical Reasoning. The other Verbal Reasoning questions were on expected lines with Courses of Action and Decision Making (2 questions), Logical Consistency (2 questions), Statement and Assumption (1 question), Strong-Weak Arguments (1 question), Cause-Effect (1 question), and a couple of miscellaneous questions including an anagram-based question.

The questions on Non-Verbal Reasoning included questions on clocks, family trees, Series completion, Linear arrangement etc. There were no set-based questions. Unlike previous years of SNAP test, no question in this section required any understanding of Physics in order to be able to answer the question. 

The majority of the questions in the section were easy to medium in terms of level of difficulty. 

The following table shows the break-up of the questions in this section.

Question types Number of questions Level of difficulty
Verbal Reasoning (10 questions, An attempt of around 8 would be considered good.)
Statement & Assumption 1 Easy
Strong/Weak Arguments 1 Easy
Logical Consistency 2 Easy
CR – Conclusion 1 Easy
Course of Action and Decision Making 2 Easy
Cause-Effect 1 Easy
Miscellaneous (Anagram-based, etc) 2 Easy
Non-Verbal Reasoning (Total 15 questions: good attempt is 10-11 questions)
Coding-Letter  1 1 Easy
Series-Letter 1 1 Easy
Series-Number 1 1 Easy
Numerical Puzzles (BODMAS) 1 1 Easy
Analogies-Number 1 1 Easy
Binary Logic 1 1 Medium
Sequential Output 1 1 Medium
Circular Arrangement 2 2 Easy
Clock 1 1 Easy
Calendar 2 1 Easy, 1 Medium
Family Tree 2 1 Easy, 1 Medium
Visual Reasoning 1 1 Medium

Overall this section was of medium difficulty level. A good strategy would be to attempt around 18-19 questions in 24-26 minutes.

Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency

Out of the 20 questions in this section, 18 questions were on Mathematics and there were two questions on Data Interpretation. The two questions on Data Interpretation were based on the same data but they didn’t appear consecutively in the paper. There was no question on Data Sufficiency. Overall this section was one notch easier than the SNAP-1 held on 10th December 2022. 

The questions on Mathematics were dominated by Arithmetic (5 questions), followed by Modern Mathematics (4 questions) and Geometry (3 questions). Students reported that all questions in this section had ‘None of the above’ as an option. 

Following was the break-up of the questions in the section:

Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency Easy Medium Difficult Total
Arithmetic 1 4 0 5
Modern Mathematics 0 3 1 4
Geometry 2 1 0 3
Numbers 1 0 0 1
Number Grid 1 0 0 1
Algebra 1 2 0 3
Series-Number 0 1 0 1
Data Interpretation (Table) 2 0 0 2

A good strategy would be to attempt around 13 to 14 questions in 20-22 minutes.
