Is it mandatory to report by 12 PM at the test center for SNAP 2019 or can i report little late?

KISHORE LOHRA 12th Dec, 2019

dear yashwanth,

No it is not mandatory to report at the exact time of reporting given in the admit card but remember that it is mandatory to reach at the test centre before the closing time of gate mentioned in the admit card.

But in my opinion you should reach at the the reporting time mentioned on the admit card because in online exams there is many verification process that you have to pass through and it will take more time and at the exam centre there is a huge crowd of candidate .

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.
