MBA Entrance

Symbiosis National Aptitude Test (SNAP)

Symbiosis National Aptitude Test (SNAP) is a national level MBA entrance exam conducted by Symbiosis International University (Pune) for admission to its various management programs offered at its affiliated institutes, including SCMHRD and SIBM.

After CAT, it is one of the most popular MBA entrance exams in India, and more than 50,000 students take the exam every year.

SNAP Pattern Analysis:

Quantitative Ability, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency

  • Traditionally speaking, the SNAP exam has always had a heavy emphasis on Arithmetic questions. It covers topics like Time and Work, Mixtures and Alligations, Ratio and Proportion, Percentages, Time and Distance, Averages and Profit & Loss. As far as Geometry is concerned, Mensuration has been a fairly regular part of the exam.
  • Data Sufficiency has been present in SNAP on a fluctuating basis, with it being absent from the exam in 2009 and 2011. In general, the Data Interpretation questions asked in SNAP are fairly easy and are not as complex as the ones asked in XAT/ CAT or as calculation-intensive as the ones asked in the IIFT test. An attempt to 24-28 questions within 40 minutes should land you in the safe zone.

General English

  • Generally, this is an easy section in SNAP. It features a host of vocabulary questions, grammar questions, and short RC passages. This section generally has questions from the following areas: Verbal Reasoning, Vocabulary and Grammar.
  • In the last couple of years, only 4 to 6 RC questions have appeared in this section and there has been a greater focus on vocabulary-based questions. Keeping this in mind, you are advised to learn and revise as many words as possible.

Analytical & Logical Reasoning

  • A major change in SNAP 2016 exam pattern was that the Analytical and Logical Reasoning section witnessed a total of 40 Questions and each question carried one mark. This led to a fall in the level of difficulty of the questions. Also, the total marks were reduced from 180 to 150. The implication of this was seen on lower cut off scores.
  • This section is a potpourri of sorts and features questions from diverse areas. The popular areas from which questions are asked are critical reasoning, deductive logic, analogies, logical reasoning sets, series, visual reasoning, arrangement, blood relations, and puzzles.
  • In the SNAP Analytical and Logical Reasoning section, one should target an attempt of 20+ questions within 30 minutes.


Preparation Strategy

  • The paper can be split into three parts: concept-driven, practice intensive and environmentally sensitive. Quantitative Ability & select areas of General English are concept-driven; Data Interpretation & Logical Reasoning is practice intensive while General Awareness is environment-sensitive.
