Sir
Does SCMHRD consider any specific sectional cutoffs for SNAP (or is only the overall score considered) while giving calls to prospective candidates? If yes, pls elaborate about last year's cutoffs.
Thank You

We do not have any sectional cutoffs. You must go through our meriting process which will be put up by two days on the site.

There are several issues you have raised and hence would require very detail answer which this thread does not permit. I still wish to satisfy your query and hence would like to state as under

By tomorrow you will have thread posted selection process at SCMHRD. Beleive me, we select only in terms of the procedure. I can guarantee that transparency. Since you could not make it last year, i understand where you come from. But when we take meritorious students, we mean it. Apart from that there is management quota, which we do not touch but come from society. Can there be better transparency.

Secondly no student or staff or even the director calling will help you. They have no powers because the system will nto allow them to enter . Avoid it.

Please remember. i cannot guarantee any admissions as you have desired but can guarantee absolute fairness for which i am personally accountable.

you are already in a great position as SAP ABAp consultant. Such people are very few today and they are in great demand. Your decision to move out and do a bschool is appreciated. Yes it will be great help because you can move out as technical consultant and move in as project manager. YOu can also be an entrepreneur. We have similar profilr of yours as a student in second year. He is doing great and will be going places. He is in demand. He is also planning to go on his own which i am trying to encourage.

What you should do are as under

a. since you are in full command on ABAP move into business intelligence as well.
b. Study for snap and make the best attempt to get selected. You stand good chance on the merit which you have stipulated. I am ignorant on your leadership which i am sure will also be on positive side.
c. Start international CFA course or ICWA. you have six months
d. Come in and take subjects on finance and operations or marketing and operations.
e. We can also get you good associate offers in MDP/consultancy wing.

this two year will be good investment for you and will bridge the gap for yout o move into leadership arena. In the absence of you background biodata, this is the best I can do

all the best.

Poer user certificate is always useful because it shows to the world that SAP recognises you. You need to do a lot functional subjects in MBA to utilise your SAP. In case you do CFA and CWA you will find going smooth in finance part of B school.

The difference between any B School is something each student has to evaluate based on his ability to go through a course. You also need to do homework by finding out from exisiting students etc.

We have separate center for excellence in finance. our brochures shows the courses and faculty handled. It also shows the placement spread. There are at least ten to fifteen students currently both in junior and senior batch separately. You will be able to do well in risk management profile.

I regret my inability to write on it, as there is no control from the institute at all. I however know that the society has a system where they collect all the applications upto a date and rank it in order of merit of snap scores and based on the applicant and his recommendation they take a considerate decision.

as a snap aspirant you are better advised to do well in snap and come on merits and not talk of management quota at this stage itself.

warm regards

Yes we do have management seat but it is not administered by the institute. It is administered by Symbiosis Society.

I am surprised that at this stage itself student wish to talk of management seat and not merit seat.
