SNAP registrations generally open in the first or second week of August and end by the last week of November. Thereafter, the test is conducted in the second-third week of December and the results are announced by the last week of December.
Detailed schedule for SNAP 2018 is made available at:
Though the official figure is not known, we can estimate that around 55,000 candidates appear for SNAP every year.
Generally speaking, a student must have completed his/her graduation with an aggregate of 50% (45% in case of SC/ST) marks.
However, the programs that the candidate is planning to apply to can have other criteria regarding specific discipline/graduation specialisation requirement and hence one must visit the Symbiosis programs on the official website to know more: Symbiosis International University Official Website
The acceptance of SNAP scores among top programs is by and large limited to Symbiosis International University’s own 15 programs for management and science across its campuses in Pune, Nashik, Bengaluru and Hyderabad.
There aren’t many colleges accepting SNAP exam scores in Gujarat. However, Amrut Mody School of Management, Ahmedabad University accepts SNAP exam scores.
There are four sections on the SNAP. These sections can be attempted in any order the candidate sees fit.
Duration of the test is 2 hours.
All questions that candidates find on the SNAP test sections (except Current Affairs section) are conceptually below class X. However, the level of logic and common sense tested on these questions is higher. Similarly, the General English section does not test pure academic English skills; it tests whether you can process mountains of drab English prose to find answers to the questions asked. It also tests critical thinking ability and appropriate usage of English words.
In short, if a student focuses on just cramming English vocabulary, grammar rules and tons of tricks and formulae, the chances of him/her succeeding are less.
Also one must note that a candidate has only 120 minutes to answer 150 questions. Hence, the candidates must equip themselves with good time management skills to surmount the challenge that SNAP poses.
Each question on the SNAP exam carries 1 mark irrespective of its difficulty level.
If the candidate’s answer is incorrect, then there is 25% negative marking. So, we would advise students to be selective about the questions they attempt.
The questions asked on the SNAP are of Multiple Choice Question Type with 4 options provided for every question.
The registration fee is INR 1,750 + Applicable Taxes & Transaction Charges. The candidate can make this payment online or s/he can even submit a Demand Draft.
The candidate must report at the Test Centre 2 hours before the exam start time in order to undergo admit card and ID proof verification, digital finger print scan and bio-metrics capture. Valid ID proofs will include a photocopy and an original copy of one of these: Passport, PAN Card, Voter’s ID or Aadhar Card.
