    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
