How to crack SNAP 2013?
In this special column on SNAP 2013 exam, Sandeep Manudhane, CMD, PT Education shares his insight and preparation tips on SNAP 2013.
For any serious CAT or XAT aspirant, SNAP is a manageable test that opens opportunities to a world of success and a string of colleges under the Symbiosis umbrella. A little bit of reflection, strategizing, and proper application of mind during the test will help you score over others.
The General Idea behind the test:
A slightly tough test because of differential marking, and presence of GK
Requires presence of mind due to these two factors
Better than a run of the mill regular test that doesn’t force you to think, but asks you to go on attempting!
What does the examiner want?
Candidates must have strong analytical / logical reasoning skills
Should be well read across areas
Should have good speed (120 minutes for 150 questions)
What’s the structure of the Test?
No. of Questions
Quantitative & Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency
General Awareness: General Knowledge, Current Affairs, Business Scenario
Analytical & Logical Reasoning
Top 10 facts
Once you understand what the examiner is looking for, you can mould your strategy accordingly. Here follows 10 facts on the SNAP paper pattern based on based on last year’s SNAP paper.
General English is not too tough. Lot of verbal questions are asked- all of the standard variety.
Reading Comprehension is not too involved or complex, and perhaps only one passage will be asked.
Very basic grammar is asked. Solving regular courseware should do the trick.
Quantitative & DI & DS is a mix of moderate to tough questions. Around 60% of the 40 questions are quite manageable.
Quantitative has questions spread across the topics. No special concentration on any one.
Analytical and Logical Reasoning section is on the tougher side.
The Analytical and LR section expects you to identify the easier ones first, and then with all the speed you can muster, attempt those.
Since the marking is skewed in favour of Analytical and LR, you must focus on this section as a priority, although you may not attempt it first.
The General Awareness, General Knowledge, Current Affairs, Business Scenario section had questions from a vast range of topics, but not tough at all.
Overall the paper was balanced, and this year too, you can expect the same, barring any major last moment change of heart!
What should I focus on now, and during the test?
Many standard questions in Quants that you practice regularly should appear
Data Analysis: can expect a moderate to tough set on it
Geometry: Revise all standard results, and work with as many diagram based questions as you can. Remember: diagrams in actual test may not be to scale
A question or two on ‘Statistics’ may come: does not matter. If you know it, go for it, else do not open a new chapter at this stage.
TSD, Logs, Arithmetic etc. will be asked for sure, as they have appeared for many years now. Revise all those worksheets.
LR may have standard questions on coding-decoding, letter-series, Venn diagram, cubes, etc. Some questions on FIJs, Blood relations and double line distribution have been asked earlier, and are not too easy.
English section should see questions from Vocabulary (Antonyms, Synonyms, Synonym-Antonym pairs, spellings, appropriate substitutes, fill in the blanks – single or double, basic grammar (passive voice conversion, error identification, sentence correction, arrangement of jumbled sentences, punctuation etc.)
RC won’t be too tough. So keep reading regularly till the test day!
General Awareness is vast, and just revise all lecture notes, test questions (of those you have attempted) etc.
SNAP does not have sectional cutoffs – hopefully it remains same this year too. But we advise you not to take any chances.
Stay cool, and enter the exam hall with a clear, pre-decided strategy.
Always spend the first minute or two scanning through all questions. It gives one a lot of confidence to see a lot of familiar questions (hopefully!).
In 120 minutes, try attempting at least 23-24 questions from Quants in 25 minutes, 20 questions from LR in 35 to 40 minutes, 30 questions from GK in 15 minutes, and upto 30 questions from Language section in 30 minutes.
This should fetch you a call from the best of the colleges.
