Candidates, it is t minus 7 to the closing date of registration for the Symbiosis National Aptitude Test! Institutes of Symbiosis International (a Deemed University) offer MBA/MSc programs to aspiring candidates by conducting the mandatory, common Symbiosis National Aptitude (SNAP) Online Test and assess the eligibility of the candidates based on their performance. So, hurry up before it is too late and register your name for one of the most competitive management exams of the year.
You need to register for both the SNAP Test as well as the institute(s) that give(s) you the choices of programs. This will require the submission of an amount of fee in both the places. If you are true to yourself and your preparation, then you will be able to secure a place among the shortlisted candidates and then attend the further admission procedure (GE-PIWAT) that will be conducted individually by each of these institutes.
SNAP and other institutes have an integrated process of registration. A single portal has been provided for completing both the SNAP as well as program registrations. In 2019 the exam will be held on 15th December, from 2 pm to 4 pm. Click on www.snaptest.org to get it done.
A flow chart is attached below to impart a better idea of the entire procedure carried out online for SNAP 2019:
With the general information given about SNAP 2019, the next essentialities at hand are the eligibility criteria, exam structure and the syllabus. Let’s get started!
- Eligibility criteria
No one below a graduate from a recognized/statutory board or university of national importance can apply for the exam. They should obtain a minimum score of 50% or equivalent grade (45% marks or equivalent grade for the Scheduled Castes or Scheduled Tribes).
Candidates who will appear for final year examinations are also allowed to apply, provided they are successful in scoring minimum 50% marks or equivalent grade (45% marks or equivalent grade for the Scheduled Castes or Scheduled Tribes).
Note: in case the candidate is unable to fulfil the above-stated criterion, her/his application will be turned into the provisional status and eventually cancelled.
As stated by the respective institutes, programs requiring a specific discipline or specialization in a subject are needed to be checked for eligibility.
A candidate who has qualified with a degree from any foreign university must contact the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) to arrange for a certificate of equivalence. Before the candidates seek admission to any program of the Symbiosis Institute of Management Studies (SIU), they will have to verify all their foreign qualifications or degrees from AIU.
Important: It is the candidate who is responsible for getting it ascertained as to whether she/he possesses the qualifications requisite for admission. Neither eligibility nor acceptance is ensured by having been provisionally admitted. The Symbiosis International (Deemed University) determines the final qualifying for the admission of a candidate.
With the significant points regarding the eligibility criteria summed up, we will move on to the next arena requiring the candidates’ attention.
