SNAP 2017 Analysis

 

According to the experts, the difficulty level of SNAP 2017 exam was higher than the last year's exam. Although the exam pattern remained the same, section-wise difficulty level observed a significant change. There was no sectional cutoff and that was a big relief for the students. Here is the overall and sectional analysis of SNAP 2017 exam. The exam was majorly divided into four sections - General English, Quantitative Ability, Current Affairs and Analytical & Logical Reasoning. Now, let's have a look at the sectional SNAP 2017 test analysis.

 

General English - This section was tougher than last year. The questions were majorly from Vocabulary and Reading Comprehension. The RC passages were lengthy in nature but the questions were mostly fact-based. The vocabulary portion had some unusually tough words. There were also grammar-based and para jumble questions. Overall, it was a tough section to attempt. Around 25 questions with 90 percent accuracy should be ideal for this section. 

 

Quantitative Ability - It was one of the most time-consuming sections of the exam. There were questions from Geometry and Modern Math. The questions were not very difficult though but demanded a lot of time to solve. Overall, the section was moderately tough. Around 28-30 questions with 90 percent accuracy should be good enough for this section. 

 

Current Affairs - This section was rated as tough in comparison to the last year. The section had questions based on Science, Business Awareness, Geography, Awards, Technology and majorly on Personalities. Students could have attempted 10-12 questions with 60-65 percent accuracy to score well in this section. 

 

Analytical & Logical Reasoning - This section was a bit weird in terms of the type of questions. There was a Pinterest post as a question. Quant questions, family tree, Mathematical functions were also the part of the section. Verbal Reasoning looked missing from the section. Overall, the section was moderate on the difficulty level.
