SNAP 2019 - Paper Analysis
SNAP 2019 exam was conducted on 15th December in the afternoon slot, across the country. SNAP 2019 was based on the 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 removal of GK. There were Objective Type (MCQ) questions as well as Non MCQs.
There were no major surprises in the SNAP 2019 exam, except that Quant was slightly tougher and on the lengthier side.
1) Slightly Tough Quant
2) Verball and LR can be the scoring section
3) Overall scores may slightly move upward compared to the previous year.
4) Attempting more in Verbal and LR was the key rather than trying too much in Quant.
Total: 34 questions Marks: 1.5 per Que
Questions were from Passages, grammar, vocabulary, figure of speech, modal verbs, sentence correction, foreign words, correct spelling, and fill in the blanks.
The difficulty level of verbal was easy to moderate. The verbal section was dominated by reading comprehension, vocabulary based, grammar and sentence completion questions.
There were also questions based on foreign words, modal verbs and figure of speech which added to the diversity of the paper. 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 para jumble question. Remaining questions were from various areas which included two questions of correct spelling, one question of match the following, two active passive voice questions. The overall difficulty level of the section was easy to moderate and this was mainly because of some tricky vocabulary based questions.
A good attempt would be around 24 to 26 questions with about 90 percent of accuracy.
Section 2 Analytical & Logical Reasoning
A good attempt would be around 22 to 24 questions with about 90 percent of accuracy.
Section 3 Quantitative Ability, DI and DS
A good attempt would be around 16 to 18 questions with about 95 percent of accuracy.
