How to prepare GK for SNAP Exam 2018?

SNAP is one of the few MBA entrance exams that has a section dedicated to general knowledge and current affairs. To prepare for it, first take a look at what sort of questions are asked in it:

  • Static GK
  • Current affairs

Until 2016, the paper was dominated by questions on static GK, and there were fewer questions of current affairs. But last year’s paper analysis shows that there were equal number of static GK and current affairs questions. The questions that came on static GK were on personalities, business awareness, sports. Whereas questions on current affairs were on science and technology, awards, geography.

Focus on last 2 years current affairs.
