SNUSAT-2014 process

SNUSAT—2014 is a computer-delivered test in which each candidate gets a randomly generated exam from a pool of questions. The number of questions and time limit of the test sections are predetermined and, under normal administration conditions, are the same regardless of when and where the test is administered. The computer displays questions one at a time. Only after a candidate takes an action on the first question, will the computer display the next question. The exam is in the following format:

  • Non Disclosure Agreement: 3 minutes
  • Multiple Choice Questions: 111 questions, 106 minutes
    - Quantitative Ability
    - Abstract Reasoning
    - Verbal Ability
  • Essay Question: 1 question, 15 minutes
