How to prepare for SNAP 2023 in 6 months: Strategy for July-August-September

Start your SNAP 2023 preparation by working on the basic concepts of Quantitative Apitude and Data Interpretation. Use these three months to study the concepts and theories of all the topics listed under SNAP syllabus. Start with the subject you are weak at. Take notes, watch videos, read secondary material to clear your concepts. Memorise all the formulae and theorems.

It is very important to start preparation of English at the earliest because success in this section totally depends on your ability to read fast and understand the passages in limited time. So start reading books, novel, magazines, newspapers, opinion pieces, data-heavy reports, etc.

Reading newspapers will help you in preparation of current affairs section as well for Group Discussion and Personal Interview rounds.

Our advice: Make a weekly plan subject-wise and follow it with 100 per cent dedication.

Dedicate these two months to practicing previous year SNAP question papers, sample papers and mock tests. Since SNAP is a speed based test, practicing mock tests is of utmost importance as it helps the candidates in developing speed and accuracy in solving the questions. While SNAP question papers will help you in understanding  the pattern and types of questions asked in the exam, weightage of topics and marking scheme; the SNAP sample paper will provide an exposure of variety of questions asked in SNAP exam. The SNAP mock tests will help you to familiarize yourself with the online exam system as well as improve speed and accuracy.

But don’t forget to measure your performance after each SNAP mock test. The purpose of practicing mock tests and sample papers is to improve your performance in each topic included in the SNAP syllabus. Also, don’t get disheartened if you don’t do well in mock tests initially. Keep working towards it, you will start scoring well.

SNAP authorities also conduct mock tests for registered candidates in these months. You should definitely take one official SNAP mock test.

Our advice: Don’t start with SNAP sample papers and mock tests until you have completed the SNAP syllabus.

How to prepare for SNAP 2023 in the Last Month

In the last one month before the exam, you'll need to improve upon your skills. So go through all the concepts, definitions, theorems and formulae. Keep aside 2-4 hours for revision each day and attempt one or two mock tests (not more than that). Go through tricks and shortcuts you can apply to solve questions accurately without having to spend time on calculation.

Our advice: Last few days before any exam are crucial. Keep calm and stay positive.
