1 Month Study Plan For SNAP 2022

As only one month is left for the SNAP exam, aspirants are advised to avoid the common mistake of choosing only one section (among the three) and preparing only that. SNAP is relatively easier when compared to CAT and XAT. Hence the candidates should focus on all the sections during the preparation. Although most institutes (accepting the SNAP scores) do not consider sectional cut-offs, aspirants should not skip any section completely. Having balanced preferences will allow aspirants to pick up the low-hanging fruits in all the sections.

Now let us move on to the SNAP study plan for 1 month in detail. This study plan consists of 2 phases as follows.

Phase-1(Cover Basics From All Sections)

The first phase of your preparation study plan should be to cover the Basics from all three sections. In any case, spend enough time learning the fundamental concepts, and make sure you thoroughly understand them. Without strong fundamentals in place, you are not going to improve your mock scores in the later stages of the preparation. Especially in the Quants section, one must be aware of the basics of the key concepts. In the LR section, be thorough with the basic types of questions such as blood relations, coding-decoding, rankings, arrangements, etc. You don’t have to go too deep into all the topics. Cover just the basics of all topics and Practice more questions.

Phase-2(Mock Tests)

It is imperative to take more SNAP Mocks Tests. SNAP is more of a speed test. The duration of the exam is 60 minutes. Therefore, aspirants must tweak how they prepare for the exam to score well. Most of the questions in SNAP do not require intricate thinking to solve. Template questions form the majority of the exam. Therefore, someone who has practised a large number of standard questions is likely to perform better in the exam. Hence, take more SNAP Mocks to get used to this test-taking format. After the mock, analyse the time spent per section and per each question. The candidates must focus on improving speed plus accuracy.

The duration of the exam is 1 hour (for 60 questions). That is one min per question. If your basics are strong in each topic, and if you give enough mocks and analyse them properly, you can crack the SNAP exam easily.
