SNAP 2020 was based on changed pattern as declared by the Symbiosis International University (SIU) on its website. The major change was in reduction of total number of questions and introduction of uniform marking scheme.  The another change  is that ‘candidate can appear for maximum of two tests for SNAP 2020. This time there were Objective Type (MCQ) questions only as announced by SIU. English section was easy as it hadvocabulary, grammar and sentence completion based questions. Analytical & Logical reasoning section was easy to moderate. This section was dominated by verbal reasoning, series and arrangement based questions. Quant section was moderate as there were a few questions based on probability and combination & permutation. This section was dominated by, modern mathematics, time speed distance and ratio & proportion.   Overall time management and selection of questions will play a major role in clearing cut-off. The schedule for this year is as follows:
Date: 20 December 2020; Time: 11.00 am – 12.00 noon.

SECTIONAL – ANALYSIS
SECTION I: General English
Evaluation: This time the section did not have reading comprehension passages. Verbal section had conventional types of verbal questions ranging from grammar, vocabulary, identifying the usage of word, sentence correction, foreign words, and fill in the blanks.The level of this section was easy. The section was dominated by, vocabulary& sentence completion based questions. A few grammar based questions purely checked the fundamentals of grammar.  There were questions based on idiomatic usage and parts of speech. There was also one partial para jumble question based on six sentences. The overall feel of the section was easy
Good Attempt: 11-13questions
SECTION II: Analytical & Logical Reasoning
Evaluation: The difficulty level of this section was easy to moderate. The section included questions on, coding/decoding,, blood relations, verbal reasoning syllogism, calendar, Input/output and missing number/letters. This section was dominated by verbal reasoning and series. There were 4 questions based on clock& calendars. The series question and coding were bit confusing but manageable. Overall feel of the section was easy to moderate.

Good Attempt: 18-20 questions.
SECTION III: Quantitative Aptitude, Data Interpretation & DS
Evaluation: This section was dominated by modern mathematics, time speed distance, ratio & proportion and number system. The questions based on permutation &combination and probability  were a little tricky but manageable. Other topics like mensuration, geometry algebra, had 1 to 3 questions each and these topics tested the student’s grab of fundamental concept. Overall the feel of the section was moderate and selection of questions was important to get hold on the paper.
Good Attempt:  15-17 questions

SECTION III: Quantitative Aptitude, Data Interpretation & DS
Evaluation: This section was dominated by arithmetic. There were no algebra questions in this slot. The question based on probability was direct and easy. Other topics like mensuration, numbersetc. Had 1 to3 questions each and these topics tested the student’s grab of fundamental concept. The question based on trigonometry was also simple.
