Preparation tips for SNAP:

Preparation strategy plays a very important role in cracking a competitive exam. So before starting the preparation one must have a proper plan. To help you out, we are giving here few important points to kept in mind during preparation.

Speed is the key to crack SNAP - SNAP is slightly less difficult than CAT. But remember, here you have to attempt 180 questions in 2 hours as compared to CAT where there were 120 questions are to be attempted in 2 hours 20 minutes. Thus, SNAP test can also be called a speed-based test whereas CAT and XAT are accuracy based tests. If you have practiced SNAP mock test papers and worked on your speed while taking the test half of your preparation is done. One more point to be considered here is logical reasoning questions are of 2 marks each so never miss those questions. Start with the sections you are confident about.

Accuracy + Speed are the only mantra – SNAP exam has the system of negative marking so do not compromise on accuracy of your answers. In your attempt to answer maximum questions you can bring down your score by marking wrong answers.

Practice SNAP test model papers- It is essential that your concepts are clear and your basic fundamentals are very strong. After covering all the topics it is suggested that you should practice as many mock tests as possible. Mock test papers are available at several coaching centers as well as educational websites.

Last but not the least; be patient and confident about your preparation.

All the Best!!
