Symbiosis National Aptitude Test '05
SYMBIOSIS lived up to its reputation and presented a very easy paper in its SNAP test. The difficulty level of the paper on a scale of 1-5 was a max of 2-2.5.On the basis of these assumptions the broad strategies to be followed while attempting the test should have been:
1. The number of attempts should have been 110-120.
2. The strategy of “ selective but with high degree of accuracy” should have been the order of the day.
3. Since all the sections were easy, it was the discretion of the student to choose which section to attempt first. A typical sequence to start with could have been QA, Logical reasoning, DI, Verbal, GK.
