SNAP 2015 exam will be easy or difficult

SNAP 2015 exam will be easy or difficult?

Warning: This is speculation based on extrapolation of historical SNAP data.

SNAP 2014 and 2013 were real surprise for the students as suddenly the level of difficulty was jacked up. Cutoff fall by almost 15 marks for SIBM as compared to SNAP 2013.

SNAP 2014 cutoffs SIBM – 102 marks approx
SNAP 2013 cutoffs SIBM – 103 marks approx
SNAP 2012 cutoffs SIBM – 117 marks approx
SNAP 2011 cutoffs SIBM – 91 marks approx
SNAP 2010 cutoffs SIBM – 108 marks approx

What will happen in 2014?
We speculation is that paper will be Medium in line with last few years trend. However it will not be as difficult as CAT or XAT but will try to match the level of NMAT. not as easy as CET or TISS.

Trend based analysis?
looking at last 5 years papers:
SNAP 2012 – medium
SNAP 2012 – medium
SNAP 2012 – Easy
SNAP 2011 – medium
SNAP 2010 – Easy
SNAP 2009 – Easy
SNAP 2008 – medium
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 2014 – medium- 10 ques on Critical Reasoning
SNAP 2013 – medium- 10 ques on Critical Reasoning
SNAP 2012 – Easy – 10 ques on analytical puzzles
SNAP 2011 – medium- 10 ques on Critical Reasoning
SNAP 2010 – Easy – 10 ques on analytical puzzles
SNAP 2009 – Easy  – 10 ques on analytical puzzles
SNAP 2008 – medium- 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 Logical reasoning section.
