Yes, if CAT 2017 answer keys can be made available, it is possible to get SNAP 2017 answer keys also, is the observation by the experts.

So far SNAP test used to be a paper based test and the SNAP answer keys were made available by number of SNAP coaching centres and other SNAP preparation sites. But since SNAP 2017 is an online computer based test and it is found difficult to get the SNAP answer keys due to various reasons associated with online test, candidates who appeared in SNAP 2017 exam on December 17, 2017 from 2PM to 4PM are consistently clicking on the websites to get access to SNAP answer keys for SNAP questions.

Other larger than SNAP 2017 MBA entrance exams like CAT 2017 which is also a computer based MBA entrance test, has published not only the entire test paper but also the specific correct answer keys for each question. It is expected that SNAP 2017 conducting authority would also make the SNAP answer keys available for the benefit of the candidates.   

Where to get the SNAP 2017 answer keys
SNAP 2017 answer keys could be made available from following sources on their respective websites:

  1. Symbiosis International Univeristy, Pune the SNAP 2017 test conducting authority

Obstacles in publishing the SNAP answer keys
Number of sets and question delivery process in SNAP 2017 online computer based test remains different from a paper based test due to which it may not be difficult to get access to SNAP exam answer keys.

Another important fact is that it is difficult to determine the order of questions in the computerised format of SNAP 2017 exam. No candidate can ascertain which was the 5th, 9th, or 34th question.

The computerised SNAP question sets are not numbered as A, B, C, D, so even if you get only answers from some source you may not be able to understand which answer corresponds to which question unless the question itself is posted along with the answer.
