Thank you! My overall score in SNAP exam was 94.250 in 27.375 in English, 37.125 in Logical reasoning and 29.750 in Quant.
I started preparing for my MBA entrance examinations one year back but I believe 4-5 months are sufficient to prepare the entire syllabus.
My approach to prepare for CAT and SNAP exam was to ensure that I study daily and give regular mocks. Regularity in studies is what is required in such exams.
I was weak at the LRDI part initially but through consistent practice I was able to overcome it. In this particular section it is essential that you practice at least 1-2 sets daily to maintain that algorithm. In the end, surprisingly I scored highest in this section vis-à-vis the other two.
I hail from Jammu and currently I am pursuing B.Tech from Punjab Engineering College, Chandigarh. My Father is an engineer and project manager and my mother is a home-maker. My sister is currently pursuing BBA.
Yes I took coaching from Educorp Chandigarh. My mentors Amit Sir and Sumit Sir guided me throughout the various stages of preparation. Although it is possible to prepare for the exam through self study. If you have the right mentors the preparation will be structured and smooth which gives a certain advantage.
I prepared entirely from my coaching material, although did use Arun Sharma to prepare for quant section.
To avoid negative marking accuracy is the key.
Well frankly speaking, I didn’t take any mocks for SNAP exam. I had just looked at its pattern and since I had prepared for CAT, I didn’t study anything extra for SNAP.
On the day of exam I just made sure I was relaxed, and the mindset is the most important thing in the management exams. As per the plan, it was simple, Go through all the questions and answer if you can or else leave it.
I applied to SIBM Pune and SCMHRD Pune As they are known for good placements.
It helps a bit you are familiar with maths. Other than that it is a similar path for various Academic Backgrounds.
I will prepare for the GD- PI rounds From Educorp under the guidance of Amit Sir.
After MBA, I would like to work in the Finance Sector and assume positions of responsibility.
For the future aspirants I would like to tell that enjoy your preparation stage without worrying about the result. Practice daily and take mocks regularly and use them for just refining your strategy. Also on the day of the exam derive the confidence from your preparation and practice i you are sure to ace it.
