SNAP 2021 Preparation Strategy
SNAP offers certain advantages compared to other entrance tests. For instance, there is no sectional cut-off in the exam and also, you can easily switch between different sections. The paper can be split into three parts: concept driven, practice intensive and environment sensitive. Quantitative Ability & select areas of General English are concept driven; Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning are practice intensive while General Awareness is environment sensitive.
Explained below is the sectional strategy for SNAP 2021:
Tips for Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency

  • You should regularly attempt mock tests to identify your strong and weak areas.
