Cutoff likely to go up his time.

Time management was key.

 

Crack SNAP in 10 days

1. Know the enemy Know the paper pattern of SNAP by heart, Remember that LR questions are of 2 marks each so don’t miss those questions. Devise a plan on how you are going to attempt the paper. I recommend best foot forward. If you are good in LR or Quant or Verbal, start with that section.

2. Make a plan See video

 

3. Temperature check The temperature check workbook is a unique tool to analyse your performance in SNAP. It takes around 30 mins to fill and you will know where you stand and how much improvement you need for last 10 days and enter your score against each topic. This will help you keep a tab on your performance according to importance of each topic in SNAP. You will know the strong points and weaker areas in your preparation and know what to target.See video

 

4. Mock papers Take a mock SNAP this week, so that you are well verse with the paper pattern and can make up your strategies for the paper.

5. Actual SNAP papers Run through actual SNAP papers of last few years. You can take the papers as a mock or just as a practice exercise. Loads of questions are repeated in SNAP papers so it makes more sense to do the papers.

6. Revise your basics Do the basics again, all solved examples of Quant, DI, VA and LR from the material you are following. Revise mocks which you have taken and laugh on the silly mistakes you have done.

7. Hold your nerves On the last day chill down! Don’t get tensed and relax. Watch your favourite movie with your family / friends to unwind yourself. Trust me you will be able to solve 5 extra questions only if you are relaxed in the paper. Rav Singh Exams Expert Rav Singh is a founder of CETking.com.

There is not much RC in SNAP exam.  SNAP is Verbal focused paper with very little emphasis on Reading Comprehension. Every year there is only one Reading Comprehension set and rest is Vocabulary and Grammar usage.

Topic in SNAP 2011 2010 2012
Reading Comprehension 6  4  6

Average 5/40 questions is 12.5% of the verbal section RC unlike CAT or CMAT where almost 30 – 40% of the paper is based on reading comprehension. SNAP 2011 Verbal Section SNAP 2011 verbal was concentrated on Vocabulary, Usage and Grammar. There was only one reading comprehension passage on the title “Alive and Kicking” of approximately 150 words which was followed by six questions. Verbal Section of SNAP The section had 40 questions that tested the students’ abilities, in the areas of: Comprehension (though there was just one Reading Comprehension), Vocabulary (meanings, usage idiomatic use, spellings and Grammar and Composition (Sentence correction, arrangement of jumbled sentences).

Reading comprehension in SNAP [/accordion-item] [accordion-item title=”SNAP 2013 will be easy or tough!”] ________________________________ SNAP 2013 will be tough or easy? SNAP 2011 was real surprise for the students as suddenly the level of difficulty was jacked up. Cutoff fall by almost 18 marks for SIBM. But SNAP 2012 brought SNAP back on track with easy paper. SNAP 2012 cutoffs SIBM – 98%ile (110 marks) SNAP 2011 cutoffs SIBM – 91 SNAP 2010 cutoffs SIBM – 108 What will happen in 2013? We speculation is that paper will be difficult in line with last few years trend. Trend based analysis? looking at last 5 years papers: SNAP 2012 – Easy SNAP 2011 – tough SNAP 2010 – Easy SNAP 2009 – Easy SNAP 2008 – Tough SNAP 2007 – Easy Every other year SNAP paper becomes tough. Hence this year paper should be tough. What makes paper tough or easy? SNAP over paper remains same difficulty every year but Logic section is what decides the main cutoffs. As each question is for two marks the expectation is high on the section and students esp non engineers bank heavily on the section. SNAP 2012 – Easy – 10 ques on analytical puzzles SNAP 2011 – tough – 10 ques on Critical Reasoning SNAP 2010 – Easy – 10 ques on analytical puzzles SNAP 2009 – Easy  – 10 ques on analytical puzzles SNAP 2008 – Tough – 10 ques on Critical Reasoning SNAP 2007 – Easy  – 10 ques on analytical puzzles Therefore, Critical reasoning is going to define the difficulty of the paper. So take care of the section. [/accordion-item] [accordion-item title=”SNAP Preparation”] SNAP preparation guide – 1.
