SNAP 2022 Analysis

SNAP test is a computer-based test and was conducted on three scheduled dates in 2022-23. The pattern this year was same as that of last year.  The first scheduled date was 10 December 2022 and exam was based on pattern as declared by SIU on its website. A candidate can appear for a maximum of two tests for SNAP 2022. If a candidate appears for two tests, the higher score will be considered for final percentile calculation and there will be no normalization. In this slot there were only Objective Type (MCQ) questions as announced by SIU. English section was the easiest among all. It was dominated by grammar-based questions. Analytical & Logical reasoning section was moderate and slightly on the lengthier side. This section, like last year, was dominated by verbal/critical reasoning, series and blood relation-based questions. The level of difficulty of Quant section was moderatein comparison to last year’s exam. Overall time management and selection of questions would have played a major role in clearing cut-offs. The schedule for 2022 SNAP exam was as follow:

SECTION I: General English
Evaluation: The pattern of this section was similar to that of last year’s. This year also it did not have conventional RC passages.   There was a surprise element in the form of decision-making question regarding ‘ meeting reminder’. Like last year, there was a poem in this section. There was only one question based on it and was based on grammar fundamentals This section primarily was dominated by grammar-based questions, i.e., parts of speech-based questions in the form of fill in the blanks etc. One or two compound words and spelling-based questions are also asked in this section.   There was a question based on an idiom, which was a little tricky as one was supposed to find out the correct usage of the given idiom from the given options. The overall feel of this section was easy.
Good Attempt: 12-14questions
SECTION II: Analytical & Logical Reasoning
Evaluation: The difficulty level of this section was easy to moderate but section was slightly lengthier. The section included questions on, coding/decoding, blood relations, logical order and missing number/letters There was only one question on input/output. This section was dominated by verbal& critical reasoning such as assumption, arguments, inference /conclusion, cause & effect etc. There were a few puzzles based questions. There were 2 questions on clocks and one of them was tricky.  The surprise this year was that there were no questions based on calendar but there were questions on syllogism. Only the right selection of questions would have played the key role in maximizing the attempts.Overall feel of the section was moderate.
Good Attempt: 18-20 questions.
SECTION III: Quantitative Aptitude, Data Interpretation & DS
Evaluation:  This section was moderate as well as tricky.  This section had the questions from conventional areas such as Percentage, Ratio partnership, Number series, set theory, Average, Permutation, and Probability etc. There weretwo DI based questions, which were on slightly difficult side as they were calculation intensive.They were based on ‘people joining /leaving the organization’. Surprisingly most of the questions had none of the above’ as one of the options and students were therefore supposed to solve the questions to get the answers. This made the section time consuming.  However, using options wisely would definitely have played key role in maximizing the score in this section. Overall, the feel of the section was moderate and selection of questions was important to get hold on the paper.
Good Attempt:  14-16 questions
