SNAP is online test or paper pencil bassed
With less than two weeks to go for the much awaited SNAP 2013, I would like to share a few pointers to keep in mind before going in. Having a strategy ready on how you plan to attempt the paper is of utmost importance, in case of any unanticipated event. 😉
Focus on each section
Although there are no sectional cutoffs, it's a good idea to focus on each section and try to maximize your score by not letting go of easy marks. Whether it is understanding the basic concepts in Mathematics or regular reading of English Comprehension, an overall preparation is important.
SNAP, being a speed-based test requires you to have the skill of selecting the right questions to attempt as the difficulty level is usually not so high and thus, making the right choice matters. Time those mock tests within the 2 hour framework.
Keeping track on the accuracy is of utmost importance as incorrect attempts can make a significant effect on the overall score.
General Awareness and Logical Reasoning
Logical Reasoning has a one-third weightage of 60 out of the total 180 marks, and developing a good skill for analytics will help in maximizing the score. Also, having an overview of the current affairs will fetch easy marks in this section. Keep yourself up-to-date by going through national dailies, and magazines such as Time, Fortune, Economist, etc.
Lastly, regular practice has no substitute. Work on the strong points and focus on understanding the fundamentals. Take as many mock tests as possible and devise a strategy for the exam.
All the best everyone!! 👍

Life @ SIBM-B
“OMG! It's already 8.00! Gotta rush!” 😠 This is usually how a day starts at SIBM-B. What with classes starting at 8.30 a.m., the numerous assignments and tests, the group presentations – you begin to agree with Mr.Wordsworth when he says that there is no time to stand and stare. A typical day starts off with rushing for breakfast at around 8.20 a.m. and hoping it would turn out to be chole battura/vada-sambar/dosa or smuggling sandwiches to munch in class. This is when you learn that you can have breakfast in 4 minutes flat.😁😁😁 You rush to class at 8.30 dot. You surely end up learning to be punctual because nobody is allowed in class even if he/she is a minute late. Then goes the attendance and finally the classes. A blur of Economics, Quantitative Techniques, Business Law, Financial Management, Financial Accounting, etc in a day, each accompanied by at least one assignment, goes on. If you are lucky, you would have classes only till 4.30, with a ton of work to finish later. Students break off for lunch at 12.45, hoping for lunch to be as good as Tuesday's menu which is laccha paratha and rajma, with an occasional gulab jamun/gajar ka halwa.😲 Once classes are done, students rush off to the gym or to play badminton/caroms/foosball or the library or to do the most important thing – Sleep, for may be an hour or two. Around 7-7.30 is when students start meeting their groups to work on their assignments/presentations and that's when the fun begins as they start to brainstorm about how to go about the presentation, what/what not to include, dividing the work among the group, criticising the group members who neither turn up for the meeting nor contribute to the work in any way, etc😠. Once the various meetings for different assignments are done, they rush off to dinner and after dinner, a long walk along the roads of electronics city. That is the best time of the day when many students go for walks in groups, to have ginger tea/lemon tea/juice/sandwich/chat/dosa and walk back to college in the amazing pleasant climate, making sure to get back before 11 because that is when the hostel/college gates close. Once back, you would either find most guys in the TV room, watching a football/cricket match, or hanging out at the cafeteria or amphitheatre, or in their rooms. Once the day's work is done, students sign at the hostel register to confirm their presence and retire to their rooms to catch some sleep before another long day.
Though the amount of work is huge, it is always a lot of fun to work in a group and create a presentation and rehearse it with your group for the final presentation. A lot of fun, work, maggi and coffee goes into making each group presentation which is done at least thrice a week. You are really lucky if you end up in a group where everyone is ready to work, because more than the actual presentation work, it is the co-ordination of the group that messes up things quite often. Also, the most important thing for every students is emails. You get at least 5-6 emails on any given day and it is very important for students to check their emails as often as possible. Once the number of whatsapp groups increase on your phone, you know that there's work to do! If you are a part of any of the 11 committees then you gotta learn to juggle the committee work and the academic assignments, which is tough!😠
Apart from academics, we look forward to every festival for the amazing food and the occasional DJ nights, where the cafeteria or the basement is converted to a dance floor! If there is a College Event coming up, then it is amazing to see the students all geared up and working hard for their respective teams such sponsorship, hospitality, logistics. What with the various event meetings, the sponsorship work, making posters and videos, obtaining proper permissions from the management, roping in food outlets to set up food stalls - the amount of efforts that every student puts it is amazing and totally worth it when the event turns out to be a huge success!
Students usually hang out in the nearest restaurants to take a break from work, to hog on some amazing Punjabi/kerala/hyderabadi food or rush off to koramangala to catch up a movie! We have cricket/football/badminton tournaments occasionally when the whole college gathers to cheer on their teams and try their best to escape from the ball when hit by the star players! It is amazing to live, work, eat in the same place with amazing people where you learn to balance work and prioritise things. It is an amazing experience which students treasure forever!
Just wanted to know that while applying for SIMS college in SNAP, then what should I fill up in category: Defence Category - general, Defence category-special, and Open category- industry sponsored. Which one should I fill in? I am open category male and not industry sponsored.... Can a person not fitting into these categories apply for SIMS?
