Most of the candidates have already registered for the exam. There were few changes in exam pattern this year, and all MBA aspirants who are applying for SNAP should know the changes in exam pattern.

The maximum marks have been reduced to 150 from 180. There will be a uniform sectional marking process this year. The weightage per question in the Analytical and Reasoning section has also been reduced. Earlier, higher marks were awarded for correct answers in the reasoning section as compared to other sections.
However, the number of questions in reasoning section has been increased. In the reasoning section, the weightage of 2 marks in marking for this section has been reduced to 1. Similarly, some questions in GK section has also been reduced in 
SNAP 2016.

Key changes in SNAP 2016

The paper pen mode SNAP 2016 with Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) will be of 2 hours duration from 2 PM to 4 PM to be held in a single day on December 18, 2018. After many years, SNAP exam pattern has witnessed changes. The key changes are as follows-

This section used to carry highest weightage in SNAP exam with 30 questions carrying 60 marks. Now SNAP 2016 has changed this pattern by awarding uniform weightage to the questions in this section. Out of total 150 questions, Reasoning will have 40 questions carrying a maximum scoring weightage of 40 marks. The section reports a loss of 20 marks as in SNAP 2016.


Number of Questions Reduced in the General Knowledge Section
