SNAP 2021 Slot 3 was in line with slot 1 and slot 2 as far as the overall test format is concerned. However, there were a few changes with regard to the internal break up of sections. e.g. The number of verbal reasoning-based questions dominated the ARLR section in slot 3. Also, the weightage of arithmetic in the quant section went up in comparison to slots 1 and 2.
The duration of the test was again 60 minutes with a detailed break up as follows:
SNAP 2021 Slot 3 Paper Pattern
|Analytical and Logical Reasoning||25||25|

Note: There was a negative marking of 0.25 marks per incorrect question.

There were 3 to 4 questions on the series, most of which were easier than slot 2. 3 questions were based on blood relation, which is also turning out to be one of the favorite topics of the test makers of this year’s SNAP. There were close to 10 questions on critical reasoning including decision-making questions. Apart from this, there were 2 to 3 questions on coding-decoding, 1 on visual reasoning, and 1 on linear arrangement. Overall, this section was easy and definitely easier than slot 2.

Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation
(20 Questions, 20 Marks)
The section on Quantitative Aptitude and Data Interpretation offered a lot of relief to the students as it was not as calculative or time-consuming as slot 1. In this paper too, there was only one question from Data Interpretation, while Data Sufficiency was completely absent from the paper. The arithmetic section regained its dominance with a significantly high share of modern maths as well.
There were 8 to 9 questions from arithmetic involving questions on Time and Work, Time and distance (trains and boat & streams), Ratio, Average, and Percentage. There were 2 questions from Probability, 1 from Permutation and Combination, and 1 from Progression making a total of 4 questions from modern maths. The weightage of geometry was less with only 2 questions (1 from Triangles and the other from Mensuration). Algebra was almost absent except for 2 Set theory-based questions. The lone DI question was difficult and could be avoided. There were 3 questions based on Numbers – 1 on remainder and 2 were based on number series and number-based coding.
Overall, the difficulty level of this section was Easy
Ideal Time: 22 minutes
Good Attempts: 16+
