The main points to know before taking exam are:
  • The important fact about SNAP is that all the Symbiosis Institutes do not consider the sectional cut- offs. Rather, they release the overall cut- off every year. Hence, you have an edge as you should spend ample time on the areas in which you constantly score well.
  • The verbal ability section is a mix of Reading Comprehension, Sentence Completion, Sentence Correction and Error Spotting, Jumbled Paragraphs, Vocabulary based questions, etc. All you need to do is learn the rules and do consistent practice.
  • Quantitative Ability, Data Interpretation and Sufficiency is another section that requires regular practice to score well. This section includes topics like: Probability, Integers, Time, Speed and Distance, Algebra, Mensuration, Permutation and Combination, Data Interpretation (Pie and Bar Graph based). Keeping a tab on time while solving questions based on these topics is very essential. Moreover, you should know short tricks to solve questions in this section.
  • The analytical and logical reasoning section constitutes questions on family tree, syllogisms, cause and effect, linear arrangement, matrix arrangement, input- output, number tree, directions, analogy etc. The level of difficulty of this section fluctuates; so you should master all the concepts and practice on the regular basis to ace your performance.
