SNAP 2020/2021 Exam Analysis, Score Calculator, Cut off

First Impressions of SNAP 2020 (9th January)

SNAP 2020 (Slot 3 - 9th January) remained consistent with the previous SNAP 2020 slots. The English section was easy to moderate in terms of the difficulty level with the wildcard being the Vocabulary and Idioms & Phrases questions which could boost your score to the next level. The theme of grammar based questions in English continued. A score of around 10 would be good for English. The Reasoning section was quite easy with 1 Number Series Question being the most challenging. A score of 17-18 would be considered good. The Quant section had 19/20 questions which were solvable. A topper would be able to score around 17-18 and a score of 15 would be considered good for the section.

Overall a score of around 41+ should be good enough to get a call from SIBM Pune while a score of 38-39 should fetch a call from SCMHRD Pune.

A very good effort by the CL team, it was the closest prediction, especially in times when prediction was near to impossible. Thanks lot!

CL was most accurate in predicting the percentile...Hats off to the extended work done by CL team

Ankit Raj

I have been following CL for the past 3 years and every time, I have felt that the CL percentile predictor is the most accurate to the actual one, ranging in +-0.2 in 97+ scores. This year, it predicted the exact percentile, what I actually got.

Pratheek Medipally

I'm really happy with CL's percentile predictior. It's very much accurate. I'll suggest this to my friends as well.
