Tips to Prepare for SNAP 2021 General English

An individual needs to be prepared with the basic rules and concepts of English grammar or language to perform well in this section. In order to prepare for SNAP 2021 General English, it is necessary to pick up the right study materials. Other than that, one must solve as many sample papers, mock tests and previous year question papers to analyse and evaluate the performance. Here are a few tips for SNAP 2021 General English Preparation that an individual must be aware of to get a good result.

Tip #1: Making Reading your Habit: Start reading newspapers, books, journals and magazines every day and circle out unusual words. Search for their meanings and jot them down in a separate notebook so that you can keep revisiting them. Reading regularly will not only help in developing a fast reading habit but will also help an individual in building a strong vocabulary.

Tip #2: Analyse your knowledge of English grammar and categorise it at beginner, intermediate or advanced level. If an applicant has a sound knowledge of grammatical concepts and norms, he/she can sail smoothly through the Verbal Ability section by regular practice and revision. If not, he/she needs to access some of the popular books such as High School English Grammar & Composition by Wren & Martin. 

Tip #3: Having a strong vocabulary changes the game completely for an individual. Candidates must study from books such as Word Power Made Easy by Norman Lewis and learn as many words as possible. Noting them down and revising them regularly is the best way to retain them in the memory.

Tip #4: Acing the Reading Comprehension is the key to scoring well in the SNAP 2021 General English. In order to do so, an individual must possess a quick reading speed and strong comprehension power. Since time is limited in the SNAP exam, one needs to work on his/her reading abilities. Besides it, practising through mock tests and sample papers can prepare an individual in outshining in Reading Comprehension.

Tip #5: Speed reading is a good way to get a good score but it can also be a reason for the trouble. Instead of mindlessly skimming and scanning through the question paper, an individual must try to read at the normal speed and understand what the question demands. If an aspirant is unable to identify the right answer, he/she can look out for wrong answers and eliminate them to reach the correct or closest one.

Tip #6: Since there is no sectional-time limit followed by SNAP, an individual can come back to the unanswered questions anytime. Instead of wasting time or taking too much time in the SNAP questions, a candidate can solve the obvious questions first and keep the tricky questions for the last. Negative marking often affects the final score acquired by an individual so it is advisable to be mindful while selecting the questions an individual is willing to attempt.

Tip #7: Plenty of online quizzes and puzzles are available in online applications which individuals can download and solve at their convenience. 

Tip #8: Practice makes a man perfect. Solving previous year question papers, mock tests and sample papers help in analysing and evaluating the weak and strong areas. Candidates must keep solving the practical problems so that they can come up with a fresh strategy to enhance their performance.
