SNAP analysis: SNAP is an objective type test with multiple choice questions. The test is divided into four sections, with about 135-150 total questions, namely on Analytical & Logical reasoning, Data Interpretation and Sufficiency, Quantitative ability,Current Affairs and General English. Since 2008, the 135 questions in 3 sections carried a mark per question whereas the 4th section carried two marks per question thus the paper totaling for 180 marks. Wrong answers were penalised with a negative one-quarter mark.
The SNAP 2016 was a departure, similar to the ones from 2010. The paper was easier with 150 questions and two hours being adequate to cover the test with a fair degree of accuracy.Except Analytical and Logical sections,all others were easy to moderate level of difficulty. General Awareness section was also above average.
In essence SNAP these days looks easier to snap up!
