With Symbiosis entrance test 2018 around the corner, you might be looking for tips and tricks to crack the exam, isn’t it? Don’t worry, it often happens that even with knowing the pattern and the syllabus, the aspirants get confused about how to plan the preparation in order to get high SNAP scores. And what can be better than having someone who has already been there and done that.
In this article, we bring to you specific strategies for snap exam preparation from ex-SNAP topper – Ms. Ruchi Doshi.
Here’s what she has to say- “I started preparing for the test at least 6 months before, which is tough because you have less time but at the same time you can have concepts fresh in your memory. Read a lot and keep noting down new words that you read or come across generally – in your memory and in your notebook”
Keeping 6 months’ time at the minimum is decent as it lets you have a good amount of time to revise for the test and improve where you lack.
Ruchi suggests – “Stay away from phones while you’re trying to concentrate. That cute cat video might be interesting, but it sure won’t help you in your snap exam preparation. Also, to focus better, choose a comfortable space as it gives you a peace of mind and helps you increase your concentration.”
Talking about her eating habits and other activities, she says – “Good nutrition often goes down the priority list when you are preparing for an exam. However, remember to eat enough and eat well, and know the need to take timed breaks. Interact with people who are going through the same phase and you will get to know more updates.”
When questioned about how consistently she used to read, Ruchi shares her experience – “For me, daily 2 hours is better than spending the whole weekend reading. This makes you consistent. Practice LR in a limited space so you can understand the exam scenario. I would recommend exercising your brain more and writing less. Try to avoid doing calculations on paper and rather let the brain do the calculation.”
Ruchi used to take mock tests and these snap mock tests helped her tackle her weaknesses and find how much more she needs to prepare herself.
“Ask as many questions as you can. It’ll help you take a right career decision,” she suggests to all aspirants.
So folks, keep these tips in mind, work on your strong areas to make them stronger, and take mocks to understand the areas where you need more preparation. Eat well, sleep well, take regular breaks, and study consistently to ace the upcoming SNAP entrance exam. With the right strategy and planned study, you can crack it and get high scores.
