Is it possible to crack snap 2019 in next 9 days ?

Harshita Gupta 5th Dec, 2019
Possibility of cracking the exam in such less days depends on your hard work.
If you are already good in Aptitude and current affairs, then there are good chances.
The topics in the syllabus are:
  • General English: Reading Comprehension, Verbal Reasoning, Verbal Ability
  • Analytical & Logical Reasoning
  • Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency
  • Current Affairs
There will be total 110 questions including MCQs (1 mark each) and special questions (2 marks each)

9 days preparation:
  • Start solving quantitative aptitude and learn tricks from YouTube. Practice them as much as you can. Learn the tricks in maximum 1 or 2 days.
  • Get old question papers and sample papers and solve them.
  • Give as many mock tests as possible.
  • Read current affairs from newspaper and TV. You can also find really good applications from where you can read current affairs in short.
  • Read one chapter of any English book and learn the meaning of words you don't know. This will improve your vvocabulary.
  • Give 7-8 hours per day for preparation and be focused.
If you allow all this, then there maybe chances you can clear the examination.

Hope this helps!

is it possible to prepare for snap 2019 in next few days ?


Hi Kush

SNAP is to conducted on 15th December this year. Considering you have around 10 days in hand, it totally depends on the time and hard work you are willing to put in the upcoming days.

SNAP has 3 sections-

• Quantitative Aptitude, Data Interpretation and Data Sufficiency

• Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension

• Logical Reasoning and Argument Reasoning

One important thing to note is that you do not have sectional cutoff or sectional timing. Hence you can try to focus on the sections you are stronger in, rather than learning new concepts.

You can start giving at least one mock test everyday and analyse it- which would take approximately 3 hours. You can additionally spend at least 3-4 hours to brush up the formulae, concepts, etc. Genuine hard work would surely help you ace your exam.

All the best for SNAP 2019.

Firstly I want to know regarding the photo Should we write Name & date when snap was taken on the photo or witout name no problem Secondly the box for thumb impression should be 4 x 3 cm Lastly for the signature is it ok to sign with 0.5 nib fountain pen as it wont be thick

KISHORE LOHRA 6th Dec, 2019

dear abdul,

you should upload a photograph must be taken on or after 01.09.2019 and clearly the name of candidate along with the date of taking the photograph is written on it. Photograph should not be with cap or goggles. The focus needs to be on face 80% and the background of photo is white.

you must have to follow the above instructions because it is clearly written in the bulletin of neet ug 2020.

on other hand for signature candidate  should put his full signature in running hand writing [not in capital letter] on white paper with Black Ink pen and scan for uploading.

• File size must be between 4 kb to 30 kb.

so you need not to do your signature with fountain pen in most general case for this purpose only simple black ink ball pen is in my opening you should use simple black ink ball pen for signature.

For thumb impression you should put your left-hand thumb Impression on white paper with Blue Ink and scan for uploading.

File size must be between 10 kb to 50 kb.

remember scanned images in JPG/ JPEG format only for signature as well as thumb impression.


Is there any sectional cutoff of SNAP exam that colleges (like SIBM, SCMHRD etc) consider ?

Pranav Mishra 3rd Dec, 2019

Hello Aspirant,

There is no sectional cutoff for SNAP exam you can get a call from any of the colleges of SNAP if you have cleared the overall cutoff of that college. More big the the college more high the overall cutoff so SIBM PUNE and SCMHRD has the highest overall cutoff in the exam which depends on the difficulty of the paper.

Since only few days are remaining for SNAP exam I would like to give a suggestion to solve as many mocks as you can to see how much question and how much marks you are been able to score within the given time limit as SNAP exam cutoff is highly dependent on how much questions you are been able to correctly solve within the time period alloted to you.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

All the best.
