SNAP 2017 exam for admission to various MBA programmes was conducted on December 17, 2017, at various examination centres across India. The question paper had four sections including General English, Current Affairs, Quantitative Ability and Analytical & Logical Reasoning with 40, 30, 40 and 40 questions in each section respectively. Candidates got 120 minutes to solve all the questions.

It seems that this year is full of surprises for the students who applied for entrance exams for management courses. After CAT, IIFT, and MICAT, candidates got another surprise with SNAP. With the exam, it has been proved that this year, the Non-CAT exams have gone really tough for the test takers. It was not just the computer-based exam that shocked the candidates but also the question paper that was way different from the expectations. SNAP 2017 exam paper was nowhere similar to the papers seen in SNAP earlier. Further, the question paper also had infographics in Reasoning section, which was completed unexpected for the test takers.

Students found this year’s exam a bit difficult. Logical Reasoning was tricky while Data Interpretation was comparatively more time-consuming. Similarly, Verbal Ability was tricky while RCs were easy to moderate. The only chance for the candidates to score high marks was with RCs. Data Interpretation was also easy as it did not have too much calculation and had 2 easy sets to solve. Overall, the main objective of the question paper was to check students on speed, analytical skills, and logic.
