[2013-2014] snap xat iift gk thread

in the MDI registration form , there is an option of Subjects* after we fill our X and XII percentages each for 10th and 12th... so just wanted to confirm , do we just need to fill the subjects we had in 10th 12th ... as in Maths, Science , SSt , etc or just the number of subjects we had in X and XII ?


In the snap registration,it is asking for total marks and max marks for Bech.We have grades (CGPA) but marks are not present on my grade sheet.I got 7.73/10 CGPA.How to fill these details in total marks and max marks columns.


Hi friends.

I have registered for the SNAP. Completed the payment and everything. Got the ID as well. After the registration was done the link

Click here to Register for MBA Programs of Constituent Institutes of SIU was displayed along with my payment details. Can anyone tell me what this is for?

As i click on this link it takes me to the page (Screen shot attached) it asks me for registration for various symbiosis colleges. I'm new to this registration thing, is there something i'm missing out on. Do i have to register for this before exam?


Symbiosis International University has from this year brought the complete admission process for the MBA programs offered by all its institutes under one umbrella. Therefore it will be a single registration process and a single personality assessment round including just a Personal Interaction and a Writing Ability Test - PI-WAT process - for all the programs across campuses at Pune, Noida and Bengaluru. The Group Exercise (GE) process has been done away with. The candidates for the PI-WAT process will be selected on the basis of their SNAP test scores and academic profile (AP) scores. AP scores will be calculated using the formula given below. AP = (A*1) + (B*1.5) + (C*2.5), where A, B and C stand for scores obtained in Std X, Std XII and Graduation respectively. [Doesn't it bear an uncanny resemblance to IIMA's all new Application Rating (AR) Score?] The SNAP score (out of 180) will be scaled down to 40 and the AP score (out of 15) to 10 to arrive at the final score (out of 50) that will be used for shortlisting. The shortlisted candidates will then need to book slots for the PI-WAT process. The PI and WAT will carry 35 and 15 marks respectively. The final merit list will be based on the total of 100 marks with 50 marks from the first stage getting added to the 50 marks from the PI-WAT process. Registrations for SNAP 2013 will close on 22nd November, 2013. The test will be conducted on Sunday, 15th December, 2013 between 2-4 pm. The results will be announced on Thursday, 9th January, 2014. P.S. bulletin can be downloaded from the URL given below. http://www.snaptest.org/pdf/Final%20Bulletin%2005%20Sep%2013.pdf

Country which won gold medal in cricket in Olympics......

Cricket was also included as an Olympic sport at the 1900 Paris Games, where Great Britain defeated France to win the gold medal. This was the only appearance of cricket at the Summer Olympics.

Once we have made the payment for registration of SNAP ie 2000. Then are we going to apply seperately for other institutes for symbi and then again make the payment.

I am going to appear for SNAP 2013.I got struck while filling the form...actually i have given my last semester of BE in May-June 2013,unfortunately resulted with one paper as backlog,I need only 5 marks to clear that subject.So,filling a form of re-evaluation,if I get it clear through evaluation my passing year would be 2013 and if not I will have to re-appear in December,then my passing year would be 2014.I am in a dilemma that what should I put in the form 2013 or 2014?

Thanks in advance.

Guys, I have this doubt..

Lets say, I am giving SNAP in December... I get a question on Current Affair.. So the answer for a question should be acc to the situation in Dec or something earlier..
