The Symbiosis International (Deemed) University's test conducting committee prescribes the SNAP exam pattern (SIU). The SNAP pattern saw significant adjustments last year, including a drop in exam duration and overall number of questions. Traditionally, the SNAP exam was only given once a year, but in 2020 and 2021, it was given three times, with candidates getting two chances each time. SNAP 2022 will again be held across three days, with candidates getting two chances.
The SNAP exam schedule and test structure have remained same for this year. Exam parameters such as section-by-section weighting, marking scheme, and sectional time limit are included in the SNAP 2022 exam pattern.
The SNAP exam paper is divided into two categories and has four sections.
Normal questions will be objective in character, such as multiple-choice questions (MCQs). Each question will have four possible solutions, from which one must be chosen that appears to be the most appropriate.
Fill-in-the-blank questions will be included in the special questions, and answers will be typed using a virtual keyboard. For instance, if the inquiry is "What is Australia's capital?" Using a virtual keyboard, a candidate must type the answer as CANBERRA.
The table below lists the SNAP paper pattern 2022.
|Number of Sections||4|
|Marks For Each Correct Answer||General English, Quantitative Ability, DI & DS and General Awareness, Analytical and logical reasoning: 1 mark each question|
|Negative Marking||1/4th (25%) of marks allotted to question|
|Duration||1 hour (60 minutes)|
|Number of Questions||60 questions|
|Total Marks||60 marks|
For reference, the table below shows the structure of a prior year's SNAP question paper and the difficulty level of each section:
|Section||No. of Questions||Total Marks||Marking Scheme||Level of Difficulty|
|Analytical & Logical Reasoning||25||25||+1/-0.25||Easy|
|Quantitative, DI, Data Sufficiency||20||20||+1/-0.25||Easy - Moderate|
|Total||60||60||-||Easy - Moderate|
The marking scheme is determined by Symbiosis University's official authority. Official authorities strive to issue alerts on a frequent basis in order to prevent disinformation from spreading and to respond to any questions about the exam pattern.
Every year, the marking scheme varies in response to trends and a few other determining variables. Candidates should be familiar with the SNAP exam pattern's marking scheme before taking the exam. In the table below, you'll find the marking scheme.
|SNAP exam pattern 2022 Marking Scheme|
|Type of Question||Correct Answer||Incorrect Answer|
|Normal Question||1 mark for all the sections in the 2022 SNAP exam pattern||-0.25 or deduction of 25% of the total weightage of the question|
|Special Question||No special questions in the 2022 SNAP exam pattern||No special questions in the 2022 SNAP exam pattern|
