SNAP 2017 Structure and Pattern

This test is one of the more popular entrance tests taken by B-School aspirants, with around 50,000 test-takers every year.  The pattern of this entrance test has always bordered on the unpredictable – we have had Data Interpretation questions (normally a part of the Quant section) included in the Logical Reasoning (LR) sections, Logical Reasoning questions making a special appearance in the Quant section and Verbal Reasoning questions (a regular feature of the LR section) being included in The English Language section. So, if you are someone who goes into the test with a fixed mindset expecting only certain type of questions in a particular section, then you are likely to be surprised by this test. On the positive side, this test is on the easier side and if you had prepared well for the CAT then you should be able to put up a decent performance in the SNAP.
