SNAP 2017 Exam Analysis
The types of questions differed significantly from the last few years in SNAP 2017. In 2017, the first-ever computer-based SNAP exam was conducted at 102 test cities across India. Overall, the paper was more difficult as compared to that of last years. Majority test takers claimed that the exam was lengthy and required more time to complete. As per the SNAP 2017 exam analysis, there were a total of 150 questions that were to be solved in 120 minutes. There were four sections viz. General English, Quantitative Ability, Current Affairs and Analytical & Logical Reasoning in the paper with 40, 40, 30 and 40 questions in each section respectively. The sections were jumbled up. There was 1 mark given for each correct answer and 0.25 marks penalty for each incorrect answer. Fortunately, this time there were no sectional cut-off; candidates could focus on maximizing their overall score instead of trying to score higher in each section.
The English section was dominated by RC and vocab. The Reasoning section had only one question on Verbal Logic.
Overall, the English and GK sections became much tougher, while Logical Reasoning continued its saga of incomprehensible question types. Quantitative Ability turned out to be more tough as compared to previous years.
