SNAP is an easy exam and one can crack it with quick preparation if their fundamentals are clear. Get three-month SNAP 2023 preparation strategy here, along with important exam tips.

SNAP preparation in 3 months

SNAP 2023 preparation in three months may not be difficult if you are preparing for other MBA entrance exams as well. All you have to do is focus on the type of questions asked in the exam. For that, practice previous years' SNAP question papers. If you do so, you’ll know which are the topics you have to gain mastery in and which are the topics you can skip to be able to prepare for SNAP in three months..

According to the latest SNAP exam pattern, there will be only 60 questions from General English, Analytical & Logical Reasoning (A-LR) and Quantitative Aptitude, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency (QA-DI, DS) to solve in 60 minutes. Each SNAP question carries one mark for correct attempt and -0.25 marks for incorrect attempt. Thus, you also need to develop the skill of choosing the right question to solve during the three-month SNAP preparation period.

So, if you start from September, you will be well-prepared for SNAP 2023 exam, but only if you need the right study plan and strategy. You will also need to dedicate more than 8 hours for preparation on daily basis. 

How to Prepare for SNAP Exam 2023 in Three Months?

SNAP exam preparation 2023 in three months would require candidates to make a short-term plan. Here's what you need to do:

  • Make a plan and formulate a section-wise strategy to cover three months.
  • Your three-month SNAP preparation plan should have monthly targets.
  • Read SNAP topper interviews and try to imbibe their strategy. Learn from them revision and shortcut tips.
  • Join MBA entrance exam preparation groups on Facebook, YouTube, Quora, WhatsApp and other social media groups for guidance.
  • Download top mobile MBA preparation apps to get access to preparation videos and study material for quick consumption.

Three-Month SNAP Preparation Plan 2023

The SNAP 2023 exam will be conducted on three days in the month of December and the candidates will have the option to make three attempts. SNAP score of best of the three attempts will be taken into consideration for admission. Divide your SNAP 2023 exam preparation plan into phases and assign actionables to them. To help you make a plan, we have divided the three months of SNAP preparation into phases, date-wise.

Now let’s take a look at what all you need to do in these three phases for a fruitful SNAP preparation.

SNAP Preparation in 3 Months Phase-I: Complete the Syllabus

SNAP syllabus 2023 consists of all the important topics from General English, Analytical & Logical Reasoning (A-LR) and Quantitative Aptitude, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency (QA-DI & DS). Start with the subject you are weak at and study its topics one by one. You should study for at least six hours in a day, which should include understanding a topic, theorems and formulae related to it and up to three sample questions.

SNAP Preparation - To-Dos:

  • Put more effort and spend more time on the topics you find tough. However, do not ignore one topic for the other.
  • You may think you can crack the General English section without preparing for it much. Don’t make that mistake. The questions in this section can be tricky. So pay equal attention to English.
  • Move to the next topic only when you have completed one topic. Understand the concepts and formulae well, then practice their application at least three times and then move on to the next topic.
  • Do not study continuously for long hours. Take breaks in between and let your mind refresh itself.

SNAP Preparation in 3 Months Phase-II: Practice SNAP Mock Tests

Practicing SNAP mock tests is of utmost importance because in an MBA entrance test you need to be able to use your knowledge acquired in the first phase well within a limited time period. Since mock tests are a replica of the real exam, the more you attempt them the more you get familiar with the actual SNAP exam.

SNAP Preparation - To-Dos:

  • Attempt at least 25-30 mock tests along with SNAP question papers of previous years and sample papers to understand the trend of types of questions asked, weightage of each topic and difficulty level of the questions over the years.
  • Analyse your performance after solving each SNAP mock test to assess your progress. You should be able to increase your speed and accuracy with every consecutive SNAP mock test.
  • In the beginning, you may not perform well in the SNAP mock tests, don’t get disheartened. Keep going at it, your performance will improve. After all, mock tests are all about practice.

SNAP Preparation in 3 Months Phase III: Revision

Keep aside a fortnight for revision of all the concepts, theorem and formulae topic-wise and section-wise. Revision is important as you need to refresh your memory with what you studied a month ago.

SNAP Preparation - To-Dos:

  • Revise all those topics that are your weak areas. Revise their concepts, theorems, formulae and also the tricks and shortcuts you may have discovered during preparation.
  • While revising for the SNAP 2023, take breaks in between so that you are able to understand and consume the information.
  • Do not try to revise all the topics and all the sections together a day before the exam. On the penultimate day, relax. Your mind needs to be calm and composed on the exam day.

All the best!
