In SNAP 2023, you will need to answer 60 questions in 60 minutes. Earlier, there used to be four sections in SNAP; and the paper was conducted in a pen-paper format. Since 2017, SNAP has been conducted online, as a computer-based test (CBT). In 2019, the exam pattern was modified further; with the GK section being omitted from the paper.
