SNAP 2020 - Post Exam Students Reaction
Akshit - "It is my first attempt. I will appear for NMAT 2020. The difficulty level of the exam was moderate. I have attempted 44 questions. According to me, the General English section was easy to moderate, LR was moderate and Quant too was moderate. But there was no reading comprehension in General English."
Dhruv- "The exam was moderate and not very tough and I attempted 42 questions. General English was average, LR and Quant were easy. Previously, I appeared for CAT 2020."
Prince Mahajan - "The exam was easy. For me, LR was a bit difficult but Quant was pretty easy and I could answer 19 questions out of 20. No comprehension was asked and mainly grammar questions were asked. Personally, LR was tough and time taking, so I opted to solve Quant first and then move to General English. When only 10 minutes were left, I solved the LR section. There was a bit of confusion in the General English section as the questions asked were in different places. All the COVID-19 guidelines were followed from the beginning to the end.
Abhishek - The exam was not very difficult and I could complete 50 questions out of 60. For me, Quant was the most difficult section. The others were moderate. There were no glitches and the exam was conducted successfully.
Jhansi- SNAP 2020 was alright, not very difficult. I found General English pretty easy and comparatively Quant was a bit difficult. Everyone was wearing masks and gloves. The hand sanitizers were given from time to time.
SNAP 2020 - Pre Exam Students Reaction
Avil Bansal- My preparation for SNAP 2020 is alright but there will be issues related to the time. Since there was a reduction in the time duration in CAT 2020, I am a bit frightened that the time will slip out of the hands pretty quickly. My strategy for giving SNAP 2020 is to quickly answer as many questions as possible, for say 35 to 40 questions. I have given CAT before, will appear for XAT 2021, TISSNET 2020, etc. I am preferring the Symbiosis International (Deemed) University or a good institute via CAT. I am also looking for institutes in Mumbai.
Arvind- I have prepared well for the entrance exam but I feel the SNAP 2020 exam will be a bit difficult since CAT 2020 was moderately difficult too. The time duration for SNAP 2020 has decreased, the speed to answer the questions has to increase otherwise I will be left with unanswered questions. My desired institute is Symbiosis Pune only, but I need to have a high score for the same, so let us see.
Aviral Agarwal- In the past too, the exam pattern of SNAP has been comparatively easier than CAT. So as per the mock tests of SNAP that I have given, I am supposing that the exam will be easier too, rest is the time management that has to be taken care of. I have appeared for CAT 2020, will appear for XAT 2021 exam and IIFT 2021. My high preference goes to Symbiosis International (Deemed) University and SCMHRD, Pune.
Partha Sarathi -I am from Odisha. I have been preparing for SNAP 2020 for the last 3 months. I have given CAT 2020 and will give XAT 2021 in the near future. I am supposing that the difficulty level of the exam will be moderate.
The time duration of CAT 2020 was less too because of which the difficulty level seemed a bit higher for me, but in the end, it all depends upon how one has prepared for the exam. My strategy is to answer as many questions as I can in less time.I am hoping to get into the SIU.
Ridhi Kumari- I have been preparing for SNAP 2020 for the past 5 months. My SNAP preparation is good enough as per my mock results. Due to exclusion of the General Awareness section and Special question, I am feeling more confident and hoping to do well in the exam.
Radhika- I am looking forward to SNAP 2020 since the duration of the exam has been reduced so it will be less stressful. Moreover, I am aiming to score well in the very first attempt. If I do not do well, it is then only that I will take a second attempt.
Suraj- This is my second attempt in SNAP. I did not score well last year. Since the exam pattern has been eased out for this year, I am hoping to score well.

Questions related to SNAP
if I got top rank in snap then I can study free or I have to pay some money
I do hope you get top rank in SNAP so that you can have your pick of colleges. As a student of SIBM Pune, i can tell you the scenario here. In the admission process, the SNAP percentile of a candidate contributes 50% and the other 50% is contributed by the GEPIWAT process on the admission day. If you score a very good percentile and also ace the GEPIWAT process on the admission day, there are chances that you might be a top scorer in the process. The top scorers are awarded 5 lakh scholarship or concession in fees to be paid to the institute. Around 15-25 students get this concession. This is something you can aim for if you are looking for a scholarship.
All the best!
I have 2 Bachelors degrees. If I want to apply for XAT,NMAT,SNAP and other MBA entrance exams, which degree should I mention as there is a provision to mention just 1 Bachelors degree.
I hope my answer helps. All the very best for your future endeavors!
I dont think SNAP Answer Key is going to be released since 3rd week has already passed and there are no updates regarding answer key
SNAP will probably not release answer keys this year since the exam has taken place on 3 different dates. However the result is expected to ne announced on 22nd January. There are several sources online which release the answer key based on memory-based papers. Even though those cannot be relied upon fully but it will give you an idea of your score. The wait is not long and you will get to know soon anyway
All the best!
What sould be the target percentile for SIBM Pune (SC Catogery)
Even though percentile is a variable thing which can change subject to a variety of factors out there, but it is safe to play with an assumption and an idea of what you can expect.
As per sources online, the cut-off for SC category for SIBM lies around 65 percentile. Please note that this might change from year to year at the discretion of the college. But this should be a safe ballpark figure to base your assumptions on.
SIBM Pune is surely a good college to aspire to for any category. It has an illustrious legacy of 43 years which means a huge alumni base. SIBM pass-outs occupy CXO level positions in various organizations and motivate us each day with their amazing career trajectories.
The best thing here is that apart from academics, we also get to learn from other sources like competitions, council events and much more. Students emerge from this college with a confidence that defies expectations. We are grilled into true professionals in the 2-year period.
I would say that all specializations are equally good in the college and one should thoroughly analyze one's interests and go for what you find interesting.
Ive scored a 30 in my SNAP exams and thats been my consistent score. Whats the probability of me getting into SIIB, Pune?
Percentiles are dynamic entities and depend a lot on the level of difficulty and the peer performance on D-Day. This is further complicated by the fact that SIU doesn’t release official percentile to score data.
However, going with extrapolated data from last year and some educated guess, assuming that the trend remains constant, 30-32 should fetch you a call from SIIB for the IB program. But take it with a pinch of salt, because as mentioned earlier, percentiles to score is a tricky topic. Historically a percentile of 92+ has been a safe bet to get a call for the IB program of SIIB.
Once you get a call, the ball is in your park. A good day in office during your GEPIWAT will ensure that you convert the same, irrespective of the margin by which you cleared the cutoff and got the call.
Cheers and all the best!
