You should look at Mate References.
Check some Example of Mate Reference
It sounds like you want to insert each individual part and have it snap automatically into
an exploded state. Is that a correct statement?
If that is the case the answer is, it can't be done. Maybe through an API macro routine.
If this is what you are trying to do, then what I would do is as you insert each part,go into
the exploded state and position each part as it is inserted.
Welcome to SolidWorks forums M.
After you've inserted all the parts in the assembly, create an Exploded View. Then using Animation Wizard, you can show the part being assembled one by one.

Sorry for not being clear, what I mean is to have an assembly with suppressed mates and parts exploded away and unarranged, then a student tries to assemble it by dragging the components into place, and the mates unsuppresses when the component comes near the right place, something like that, can it be done using a macro?
This is exactly what I need, thank you very much!
