Previously, SNAP had total questions of 130 with 110 MCQs and 20 Non-MCQs. But this year the total number of questions has been changed to 110 with 105 MCQs and 5 Non-MCQs. But the duration is still the same as 120 minutes and the total mark is also the same as of 150.


2. Less section

Previously, SNAP had 4 sections of the syllabus for questions. Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency, General English: Reading Comprehension, Verbal Reasoning, Verbal Ability, Analytical & Logical Reasoning, and General knowledge (GK) or Current Affairs.

3. Reduction of Non-MCQ Questions

Earlier SNAP used to have 5 Non-MCQ question for each section due to which the total number of N0n-MCQ question was 20. But with erasing of the GK section the SNAP pattern has been reduced to a total of 5 Non-MCQ question. These 5 Non-MCQ question is present only in the Quantitative ability/ Data Interpretation section carrying 2 marks each. 


4. Marking system

Previously SNAP exam awarded 1 mark for each correct answer. This year the marking system has been changed so that the Quantitative Ability will have +1 mark for each correct answer and Verbal Ability & Logical reasoning will have +1.5 mark for each correct answer.
