SNAP, conducted by the Symbiosis International University for admissions to management programmes, is one of the top management entrance tests. The test will be conducted on December 18 in an offline mode across test centres.

To help you devise your last minute preparation strategy for the test, SNAP Topper, Srikanth Kanchinadham shares five key pointers to help you perform better in the test.


5 Last Minute Tips To Crack SNAP


Srikanth says that among the numerous exams, the one test that manages to catch the attention of individuals is SNAP. The below given five tips must be kept in mind before the exam to extract the best from your performance.


1. Take Sufficient Amount of Rest


Our brains can and will work overtime, but must also be given enough time to recuperate to get refreshed. In the event that you sit for a competitive exam while your brain's prowess are depleted, you will have a much harder time reviewing the data you have which makes it a hindrance to acquire a high score. The SNAP test is intended to test and review the individual in every aspect and subject which would take numerous months to concentrate, so wildly assessing your notes the week prior to the test won't help you. You can concentrate on an hour or so a day to keep yourself centred and on-point, however, abstain from working late into the night.


2. Rest your hands


Unlike the other management exams, the SNAP Test is not yet PC conveyed, and this implies you will do a considerable amount of solving questions by hand. It might appear to be bizarre to consider, however, drained hands are one variable that can influence your execution. Nonetheless, there are approaches to minimise the probability of hurting fingers. You can take the help of a few stretching exercises to relieve yourself from the anxiety and pressure during the examination.


3. Use Flashcards & Cheat Sheets To Remember Better


Studying chunks of matter at the last minute is never a good idea. Candidates preparing for the SNAP test should start using flashcards to remember and revise concepts or formulae at the last moment. A secret hack for this process is to create a little cheat sheet covering bite-size data that is either imperative to recall, (for example, equation) or just something you're struggling with. Utilise memory aides, charts, and diagrams to maintain a strategic distance from simply winding up with a page loaded with content. Composing the cheat sheet itself will likewise help you re-examine your strategy.


4. Do Not Distract Yourself


Dispose of all outside contact: Turn off the TV, your telephone and advise your folks or housemates not to irritate you. All your appliances, from your Play Station to tabs can be on hold while you prepare yourself to crack the biggest test of your life. SelfControl (for Mac) and ColdTurkey (for Windows) are applications that will stop your tarrying when on your PC in its tracks by blocking you from going to specific sites. With lesser diversions, you not just work better, but your concentration tends to go higher making you work much harder.


5. Stay Motivated


Move from the minute you're up: You would prefer not to waste practice time. Get a sound sleep and nibble on something light before you start practicing or studying. By getting up in the morning you have the privilege of unwinding later in the day wherein you abstain from rushing anything. Attempt and get an inspirational disposition and keep yourself propelled. Stress can prompt to mix-ups, so unwind, take full breaths and remind yourself: At the end of the day, it is just an exam.

Vemireddy Rushitha Student Expert 3rd Oct, 2019

Hello Aspirant,

First of all I don't how you got your UG graduation degree if you have failed in 12th maths. The eligibility for UG is,the candidate has to pass 12th standard with a minimum of 50%. Then the candidate will be given admission for any of the UG degrees. Since you haven't cleared you 12th standard you cannot take Symbiosis National Aptitude Test.

Good luck!

Hey! So i have this query about the admission process in the mba/pgdm program. I have planned to give snap, ibsat, and cmat but i am confused regarding the registrations in colleges. What is the seat locking system?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 24th Sep, 2019

Dear Shivani, there is no option of Seat locking at any these exams that you have mentioned. Admisisons are conducted based on merit list in the selection process. Because these are Institute level entrance exams, you dont have the option of locking a seat.

SNAP: You need to appear for SNAP and score the minimum cut off to be eligible for shortlisting. The shortlisted Candidates have to appear for GE-PIWAT and the final merit list is prepared based on the performance in GE-PIWAT.

IBSAT: The process is similar to that of SNAP. Candidates need to qualify in IBSAT and secure the minimum qualifying marks. Candidates will be shortlisted based on Group Discussion and Personal Interview.

CMAT: AICTE approved Institutions that participate in CMAT will conduct the selection procedure. Candidates will have to appear for Group Discussion and Personal Interview based on the Institution they are interested in joining. For the selection process of CMAT, please visit our page at:
