SNAP Test 2020 is right around the corner. A few weeks from now, you will be sitting inside a classroom taking this MBA entrance exam. In the past few months, you may have spent hours pouring over different books to ensure you can crack this test.
First let’s have a look at the revised SNAP Exam Structure for this year:
|Section||Questions||Marks Per Correct Answer||Total Marks|
|General English: Reading Comprehension, Verbal Reasoning, Verbal Ability||15||1||15|
|Analytical & Logical Reasoning||25||1||25|
|Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency||20||1||20|
Step 1: Take The Right Mock Test
Find a genuine, full-length mock test to determine where your understanding of quantitative, verbal, and logical reasoning stands. A practice test will allow you to assess your strengths and weaknesses. It will also help you recognize the kinds of questions you performed well, and the ones you had difficulty solving. You can then utilize this knowledge to create an efficient study plan.
Taking a mock test will also help you familiarize yourself with a test’s format and timing. This will help you learn precisely how you can employ the expertise you possess and how you can complete the test within the allotted time. For instance, the SNAP exam 2020, has 60 questions that you need to answer within 1 hour. A mock test will teach you how you can utilize 60 minutes to ace the test.
Another point to remember is to take the mock test under similar circumstances that you will encounter on the test day. When taking a mock test for SNAP, ensure that you schedule 1 hour for the mock test and an additional hour to evaluate the test later in the day.
Step 2: Establish Your Study Agenda
Procrastination can be an unending spiral. If you are a full time student or a full time employee, you will find various tasks you will need to complete immediately. This will make it harder for you to schedule any study time for your entrance exam preparations. Therefore, it's important to avoid procrastinate; otherwise, you won't realize how quickly the test day will arrive.
Those who study every day of the week generally score better compared to those who study only once or twice a week. However, working professionals may have a difficult time following this study pattern. In such scenarios, it's best to create a study plan that allows you to optimally use your day to factor in other responsibilities along with preparing for the SNAP test.
Remember to block out time for at least four mock tests during your study plan. Based on your performance in the mock tests, you will need to tweak your study plan so that you can improve in areas you had a hard time solving.
Step 3: Develop Your Study Plan
The right way to prepare for any entrance test is to use the correct books and online resources. Numerous books in the market will provide you with different tricks you can employ to answer specific questions.
While preparing your study plan focus on sections that you find challenging and the type of questions that are frequently asked. For example, in the quantitative section, if you have a difficult time with statistics, then spend extra time studying that rather than the topics you find easy. Nevertheless, don't skip on improving upon your strengths. For instance, if your logical reasoning skills are strong, then allocate one day of the week for solving questions from that section.
If you plan right and practice hard, you will have no reason to be nervous about the SNAP test and can easily crack the entrance test.
The importance of the 3rd section - Analytical & Logical Reasoning lies in the fact that it examines your critical thinking abilities.Critical reasoning is a test of your mind to think rationally, to analyse and comprehend the given statement and reach a conclusion based on your understanding. It is vital that you learn how to tackle such questions if you want to do well in the SNAP 2020.
Hopefully, the following tips will assist you in enhancing your critical reasoning abilities:
