By Sarada Rath

Symbiosis National Aptitude Test or SNAP is one of the most popular competitive exams in the country. It offers MBA in all of the 15 Symbiosis colleges present in India. The applicants for SNAP are increasing each year. More than 50,000 candidates applied for SNAP last year. So you need to score really high in order to get yourself a seat in any one institute of Symbiosis.

Though the level of difficulty of SNAP doesn’t fall under the category of CAT or XAT, it still required thorough preparation and practice to get a good score.

Candidates have to solve 115 questions in 120 minutes. One mark for each correct answer of the normal question and two marks for each correct answer of the special question with total marks of 150. 25% negative mark for each incorrect answer. The exam pattern for SNAP is listed below:

Quantitative, Data Interpretation, and Data sufficiency:

This section contains mostly arithmetic questions. There are chances of geometric and mensuration based questions also. The quantitative section is very time consuming, so the candidate needs to practice this section more. This section contains 30 normal questions that award one mark for each correct answer and 5 special questions that award two marks for each correct answer.

Analytical & Logical reasoning: 

This the most scoring section among all if you are good at it. This section contains logical reasoning, deductive logic, analogies, series, blood relatives, puzzles, etc. you should attempt as many questions you can from this section.

General English:

Reading Comprehension, Verbal Reasoning, and Verbal Ability (30 questions):  Normally this is an easy section for those with good knowledge in English literature. This section consists of passages, grammar, vocabulary, and verbal reasoning question. Candidates need to read and write as many English based QnA as one can to have a grasp in this.

Current Affairs:

This section normally consists of static GK, brand and business GK, news stories, award winners, sports event questions, and important acquisitions and mergers from the past one year. Reading newspapers and news sites help in this section. Answer the question which you are most certain about. Do not try random guessing.

 

Preparation Tips for SNAP

One can do well in the test by upholding basic managerial skills like effective time management, speed, accuracy, prioritization, and strategic approach to different sections. There are various ways a candidate can prepare for the SNAP test:

Mock test for SNAP:

Practice makes a man perfect. Solving mock tests gives you a brief knowledge about the pattern of the question, the level of difficulty of the test, types of question that are asked. Giving mock tests makes a student visualize his/her strong and weak areas. Mock test improves the time management skills in the students, which is the most important skill while giving any test.

Weak topic practice:

A candidate must clearly know his/her strong and weak areas. Weaker topics need to be practised more. Not only practising question will improve your weaker areas, but also learning a few tricks on how to solve those weak questions can make you good on those topics.

Thorough in the syllabus:

It is very difficult to cover all the topics with much ease. Try to cover as many topics you can cover easily and thoroughness and revise it. Do not leave those topics which are more frequent in previous SNAP tests.

Time Management 

The most important key in getting a good score in any test is time management. Always keep an eye on the timer. If a question is taking too long to answer, leave it, and jump to another. Always do the question which falls under your strong areas. Attend the easy questions first by which you will have more time for difficult ones.
