SNAP 2020 Exam Analysis (Slot 1)
The major highlight of SNAP 2020 was the drastic reduction in the number of questions and the duration of the test. This year’s SNAP was easier than the last edition with the only challenge being the time constraint. The paper pattern was as follows:
SNAP 2020 Paper Pattern
|General English: Reading Comprehension, Verbal Reasoning, Verbal Ability||15||15|
|Analytical & Logical Reasoning||25||25|
|Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency||20||20|
Note: There were no special questions and there was a negative marking of 0.25 marks per incorrect question.
The sectional, in-depth SNAP 2020 Exam analysis is as follows:
(15 Qs, 15 marks)
One remarkable change in this section was the absence of Reading Comprehension questions. The section was dominated by Vocabulary, Grammar, and Usage-based questions.
There was only one direct vocabulary question where the student had to identify the meaning of “largesse”. There was three fill in the blank questions where that tested collective nouns like “choir” and usage of common words like “profuse”. There were two questions on idioms and phrasal verbs. Idioms like “nineteen to the dozen” and common phrasal verbs related to “hold” were tested. There was one question on identifying the correct spelling. This makes it a total of 7 vocabulary-based questions.
The grammar questions in this year’s test were similar to the ones that students encounter every year. There was three fill in the blank questions which tested concepts like prepositions and compound nouns. There were two questions on identifying the parts of speech where students had to identify the function of words like “so”. This makes it a total of 5 grammar-based questions.
Like every year, there was one question on rearranging the jumbled paragraph but this time, with a twist. 5 jumbled sentences were given and students had to identify the first sentence. Also, continuing the trend of previous years, there were two questions on figures of speech that tested students on simple figures of speech like similes and metaphors.
Overall, the difficulty level of this section was EASY.
Ideal Time: 12 minutes
Good Attempts: 13+
Good Score: 10.5+
Analytical & Logical Reasoning
(25 Qs, 25 marks)
This section consisted of a good variety of concepts with no particular topic with disproportionate weightage. There were 2 questions each on the circular arrangement, clocks and calendars, and input-output. There was 1 question each on blood relations, analogy, coding-decoding, and syllogisms. There were 5 questions on series and 3 miscellaneous type questions. Verbal reasoning consisted of 4 questions – 2 each from the course of action and assumption. Barring a few questions from series and arrangements, others were easy. The only challenging part in this section was the time constraint. There were one or two questions where students could have ended up wasting some time.
Overall, the difficulty level of this section was Easy to Moderate.
Ideal Time: 26 minutes
Good Attempts: 20+
Good Score: 17.5+
Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation
(20 Qs, 20 Marks)
The difficulty level of this section was easier, compared to that of last year. The section was dominated by arithmetics.
There were 2 questions each on time, speed and distance, numbers, permutation and combination, probability, and algebra. There was 1 question each on geometry, data interpretation, co-ordinate geometry, time and work, ratio, averages, allegations and mixtures, percentage, profit and loss, and logarithms. Most of the questions were easy to moderate and such that a well-prepared student could solve almost each of them within a minute.
Overall, the difficulty level of this section was EASY.
Ideal Time: 22 minutes
Good Attempts: 16+
Good Score: 14.75+
