Check detailed SNAP Exam Pattern
To have full command over English language is a must to crack this section. This section will come across as an easy section for those who have included the following activities in their daily routine:
In this section, you have a passage along with questions related to it. Candidates are required to read and understand the content given and thereby answering the questions. Few tips and tricks to excel in this:
1. Focus on opening and closing paragraphs of passages
Most of the passages in SNAP RC section will be short, but one or two will be long. If you short of time, read the opening and closing paragraphs and skim the middle. This is because, the first and the last paragraphs contain the passage's main idea in most of the passages.
2. Use context to help you
If there is a question based on a particular line, DO NOT go back into the passage and read just that line. Instead, read at least two to three sentences before and after the line in question, so as to comprehend what the author is trying to say. This will help you to arrive at the answer with better accuracy.
3. Sharpen your skills through reading
The word count can come across as a scary thing and leave you in panic situation in the exam. It is extremely important to maintain your cool and be prepared for such challenges. The best long-term strategy to deal with long RCs is to build your reading stamina and making sure you are ready for the mental battle. An important point while reading is to maintain your focus and attention. This can be developed only with a good amount of practice.
Read as much as you can and reading diverse areas will help in increasing your understanding related to other areas in addition to the areas you are familiar with. Read online journals, magazines, books and newspapers. The more you read and practice, the better will be your ability to filter out irrelevant information from the relevant one.
4. Make your Vocabulary Better
Try to increase your vocabulary (general and area specific). Remember, this is another long-term strategy that requires dedication and application. It is not possible to improve your reading skills overnight. Thus, it is extremely important to build on your core language skills in order to develop into a master reader.
5. Read Questions First
This trick works most of the times while attempting this section. Before you start reading the passage, go through the questions and then start reading the passage. This will save a lot of time in the examination.
