SNAP result 2023 was declared on January 10, 2024. Currently the admission process is underway at the SNAP accepting institutes. PI shortlisting process through SNAP score will be held through February and March 2024. GE-WAT-PI details will be shared with selected candidates in email. The SNAP 2023 cut offs for admission will be in the range of 70-98 percentile.

 

Q:   What are the chances with 60 percentile in SNAP of admission in MBA hospital and healthcare management?

A:
With a 60 percentile in the Symbiosis National Aptitude (SNAP) Test, the chances of admission to an MBA in Hospital and Healthcare Management programme may be limited. However, scoring well in the SNAP exam is crucial for admission to SIBM Pune, which offers a programme in this field. Additionally, some colleges may require a minimum of 50% aggregate marks in a bachelor's degree for admission to an MBA in Healthcare Management. It's important to note that admission criteria may vary between institutions, so it's advisable to research the specific requirements of the colleges you are interested in.

Q:   My SNAP percentile is 94, and I had given the interview at SIBM Hyderabad. The interview was average. Are there any chances of admission?

A:
Based on your SNAP percentile of 94, you have a good chance of getting shortlisted for SIBM Hyderabad. However, admission to SIBM Hyderabad is not solely based on your SNAP score and interview performance. The final admission decision is based on various factors, including academic performance, work experience (if any), extracurricular activities, diversity, and the overall profile of the candidate. So, while your interview performance was average, it is still possible that you may be offered admission based on other factors that the institute considers important. However, it ultimately depends on the cut-off scores and the number of seats available for the course you have applied for. It is best to wait for the final admission decision from SIBM Hyderabad and consider backup options in case you are not offered admission.

Q:   What is the SNAP cut off for candidate belonging to Reserved category?

A:

The SNAP cut-off for Reserved category students varies from institute to institute, but it is lower than that of General category candidates in all B-schools. For Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM) Pune, the SNAP cut-off for reserved category candidates last year was: SC : 73.0880 ST: 38.8921 DA: 46.5174 KM: 87.9513. Candidates belonging to Reserved categories, having this much score are eligible for the Group Exercise (GE), Personal Interview (PI) and Writing Ability Test (WAT) round which is conducted for MBA admission. Candidates have to clear this round to get admission. 

As far as scholarship is concerned, top 20 overall scorers get a rebate of Rs 5 lakh in the course fee ( as per last year). Also, there is scholarship for girl students and students from IITs and NITs who join SIBM Pune.

This way, they will not have to worry about misplacing it or the need to download it again.

 

Q:   If I forget my SNAP ID, how can I retrieve my login to download SNAP result?

A:

If you forget your SNAP login credentials, then you can create a new password by using the ‘forgot password’ option available on the login page. You can simply click on ‘forgot password’ and follow the instructions displayed on scree to change the password to log in. To get a new password, you will need to remember the correct email ID or the mobile phone number through which you had registered earlier.

This is done so that no candidate has any advantage or disadvantage when they appear for the next attempt. Candidates preparing for the SNAP exam, must keep in mind that the different sessions could be of different difficulty level. If their first attempt was easy, the second attempt may not be easy. So, it is important continue to prepare and practice during the gap between two SNAP sessions. The best score of all the sessions will be taken into consideration for SIU personal interview shortlisting.

Q:   What is the difficulty level of SNAP question paper?

A:

SNAP is one of the few MBA entrance exams which is easy in terms of difficulty level. It is much easier The number of questions, as well as the exam duration are less that than other MBA entrance exams. The type of questions asked in SNAP as also pretty straightforward.

Candidates can mention their number of attempts in the SNAP 2023 application form. However, they will have to pay application fee per session. Thus, candidates who are sure of making multiple attempts only then they should apply for multiple sessions as the fee amount is non-refundable.  The scores of best attempt will be taken into consideration for shortlisting of candidates for Group Exercise, Personal Interview and Writing Ability Test.

Ideally candidates must take all three attempts as the difficulty level of the sessions could be different and it may so happen that one session is easy and candidates can score high in that.

Q:   Should I take coaching for SNAP preparation?

A:

Yes, coaching is recommended for preparation for any competitive exam as the candidate gets best of aid such as books, study material and mentors. However, the candidates must join coaching if only they can follow the rigorous time-table and daily classes.

About six to eight hours daily is considered good enough duration for SNAP preparation. However, if you start exam preparation late (by October) then you need to devote 10-12 hours daily. SNAP is easy and if you are preparing for other MBA entrance exams, you may not need to work too hard on it. A good number of sample papers and mock tests will be good enough. 

  • Some of the most recommended books include:
  • How to Prepare for Data Interpretation for CAT
  • How to Prepare for Logical Reasoning for the CAT by Arun Sharma
  • High School English Grammar & Composition by Wren & Martin

Q:   I am preparing for CAT exam. Do I need to prepare for SNAP exam separately?

A:

Those preparing for both CAT and SNAP exam need not prepare separately. CAT and SNAP syllabus are the same so one can prepare for both from the same study material.  However, since the exam pattern and difficulty level of both exams are different from each other, candidates need to devote a good amount of time on exam specific preparation. They must practice SNAP mock tests to understand the test pattern, topic-wise weightage, types of questions and difficulty level of the questions. The biggest difference between SNAP and CAT is the type of questions, so you need to practice sample question for SNAP to know how and what to prepare for it. You also need to know the sectional composition of SNAP, which is different from CAT. SNAP is easier than CAT so a mix of tough and moderate level SNAP sample questions and mock tests will be adequate for preparation. 

Q:   Can I prepare for SNAP in 3 months?

A:

Yes, SNAP preparation is possible in three months as the difficulty level of this exam is easy to moderate. So, if one starts preparing for it with only three months in hand, even then they can score well if they put in six to eight hours daily into preparation. Complete the syllabus in 45 days and the give one month to mock test practice. In the last few days, do revision for complete preparation. To be in a better position, focus more on the topics from which maximum questions are asked. For example, in General English, most of the questions are Grammar based, so focus on it more. In Quantitative Aptitude section, more questions are asked from Arithmetic and Algebra than Geometry so focus on the former two. SNAP always has at least data interpretation question so don’t ignore it.

Check the list of SNAP 2023 test cities

 

Q:   How many cities can an applicant choose in SNAP for test centre allotment?

A:

An applicant can select up to three cities for allotment of test centre in the SNAP 2023 application form. The exam authorities will allot the exam centre to candidates in their preferred city. In case, seats are not available in the first preferred city, it will be notified in the form and candidates can select another city. Candidates must select their home city or city of current residence as first preference.

SNAP 2023 will be conducted in 84 cities across India. The latest list of SNAP cities has been released along with the SNAP 2023 registration form. Every city will have at least one SNAP exam centre to accommodate a minimum of 50 test takers. You can select only one city per exam session. For example, if you want to appear for SNAP 2023 only once, then you can select only one city. 

 

Q:   Can I make corrections in my SNAP 2023 form after submission?

A:

Correction in the already submitted application form is not allowed in SNAP as it doesn't have form correction provision like other MBA entrance exams. Candidates can edit their form only till the time it is not submitted and the fee is not paid. Until the form is saved in the student dashboard, you can edit it. Once the fee payment is done, your SNAP application will be locked for examination agency’s verification.

Thus, candidates must preview the SNAP application form at least once before submitting it. If they make a mistake in the form, they will have to fill a fresh form before the deadline and if they miss the deadline and the application window is closed, they will not be able to appear for the exam. 

 

Q:   Is it mandatory to fill SNAP application form for admission to MBA programmes of SIU institutes?

A:

Yes, it is mandatory to fill the SNAP application form for admission to the MBA programmes of the SIU institute. There is a field in the SNAP application form where candidates have to mention their choice of SIU colleges and MBA courses they wish to pursue. They need to pay INR 1000 per college selection. There will be no institute specific application form released later. Candidates will have to use the SNAP application ID to fill the admission shortlist forms of the constituent institutes. If a candidate fails to mention a college in their SNAP application form, they will not be shortlisted for WAT-GE-PI of that SIU institute.

 

Q:   Is the application fee for SIU institutes included in SNAP fee amount?

A:

No, the SNAP application fee does not include the fee for SIU institutes that the candidate wishes to apply at. The SNAP application fee is INR 2,250, whereas for every SIU institute, candidates have to pay INR 1000. For example, if they select one institute in the SNAP application form, they have to pay INR 1000, if they select two institutes they have to pay INR 2000.

If a candidate chooses to not select any institute in the application form, they don’t have to pay any amount other than INR 1,950. However, in that case, they will not be eligible for selection to the GE-WAT-PI round of the SIU institutes.

 

SNAP Eligibility Criteria 2023

Candidates have to fulfil the below-given eligibility criteria for appearing in SNAP exam 2023:

  • Graduation in any stream with minimum 50 per cent aggregate (45 per cent for SC/ST/PWD candidates) or equivalent from a recognised university or institute can apply for SNAP 2023.

Also read: SNAP eligibility criteria for General and SC/ST candidates

Q:   What is the eligibility criteria for SNAP 2023 and what is the selection process?

A:
The eligibility criteria and selection process are designed to pick the cream of the crop. To be eligible, candidates need to have a Bachelor's degree in any discipline from a recognised university with a minimum of 50% marks. But don't fret if you're in your final year, as you can still apply as long as you obtain the required minimum marks. Once you clear the eligibility criteria, the selection process begins, which includes shortlisting candidates based on their SNAP score, followed by the Group Exercise, Personal Interaction, and Writing Ability Test (GE-PIWAT). To secure your spot, you need to perform well in all stages of the selection process, including demonstrating your aptitude, communication skills, and leadership potential. It's a competitive and rigorous process, but with dedication and preparation, you can ace it and be on your way to a bright future in the field of management.

Q:   What is the MBA selection criteria through SNAP?

A:

Candidates are selected on the basis of SNAP cut offs for the MBA admission round which consists of Group Exercise (GE), Personal Interview (PI) and Writing Ability Test (WAT). This round is held in February and March after the announcement of SNAP result.

Candidates who clear the GE-PI-WAT round are selected for MBA admission. The parameters for selection also include class 10, 12 and graduation scores, academic profile and work experience. All SIU institutes conduct Group Exercise, Writing Ability Test but individually.

Sectional SNAP cut offs may be evaluated for selection of candidate for Group Exercise, Writing Ability Test and Personal Interview. Scores of every section will be taken into consideration for shortlisting of candidates along with their academic record. Thus, candidates must ensure that they perform well enough in each section of the SNAP exam.

 

Q:   I am in my final year of Graduation. Can I apply for SNAP 2023?

A:

Yes, you are eligible to apply for SNAP 2023. You will need to mention the same in the SNAP application form. Since there is minimum score requirement for SNAP, final year candidates will have to make sure that their minimum score of first and second year of the bachelor’s degree programme should be above 50 per cent (45 per cent for reserved category). So, you need to check the average score of your first and second score is above the minimum requirement or not. If not, the in the final year you will have to score as much that the average score of three years matches the requirement. If the average score of your first and second year is above the minimum requirement even them, in the final year, you will have to score above the minimum score requirement otherwise the admission will be deemed invalid, even if you fulfill all the admission criteria.

The exam has three major sections, including General English Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency, and Analytical & Logical Reasoning.

Additionally, practice solving previous years' question papers and mock tests to understand the exam's difficulty level and pattern. It's also crucial to manage your time and accuracy during the exam. Identify your weaker areas and work on them regularly. Finally, don't forget to stay up-to-date with Current Affairs and general knowledge topics to score better.

Q:   How to crack SNAP exam? I'm not an MPC student.

A:
SNAP (Symbiosis National Aptitude Test) is a national-level entrance exam conducted by Symbiosis International University for admission to its management programs. Cracking SNAP exam requires dedication, hard work, and a structured preparation plan. Here are some tips that can help you prepare for and crack the SNAP exam: 1. Know the exam pattern: Understanding the exam pattern is essential to prepare for the SNAP exam. The exam consists of four sections - General English Analytical and Logical Reasoning, Quantitative, Data Interpretation, and Data Sufficiency, and Current Affairs. Knowing the weightage of each section will help you prioritize your preparation. 2. Create a study plan: A study plan will help you organize your preparation and cover all the topics systematically. Allocate time for each section according to the weightage and your strengths and weaknesses. 3. Solve mock tests: Practice mock tests regularly to get an idea of the exam pattern and improve your speed and accuracy. Analyze your performance and identify your weak areas. 4. Focus on basics: The SNAP exam tests your basic concepts and fundamentals. Focus on building a strong foundation in each section to solve complex questions. 5. Read newspapers regularly: Current Affairs is an important section in SNAP exam. Reading newspapers and magazines regularly will help you stay updated on the latest events. 6.

Q:   Which books should I use to prepare for the SNAP exam?

A:
The best source of SNAP preparation are MBA exam preparation books recommended by experts and previous years' question papers, sample papers and mock test series. These are generally provided by the coaching institutes, however if you plan to prepare for SNAP by self-study, you can purchase the SNAP books and mock test series online. The SNAP sample papers are freely available on the internet For general English: 1. How to Prepare for Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension for CAT Arun Sharma & Meenakshi Upadhyay 2.

Q:   My SNAP percentile is 94, and I had given the interview at SIBM Hyderabad. The interview was average. Are there any chances of admission?

A:
Based on your SNAP percentile of 94, you have a good chance of getting shortlisted for SIBM Hyderabad. However, admission to SIBM Hyderabad is not solely based on your SNAP score and interview performance. The final admission decision is based on various factors, including academic performance, work experience (if any), extracurricular activities, diversity, and the overall profile of the candidate. So, while your interview performance was average, it is still possible that you may be offered admission based on other factors that the institute considers important. However, it ultimately depends on the cut-off scores and the number of seats available for the course you have applied for. It is best to wait for the final admission decision from SIBM Hyderabad and consider backup options in case you are not offered admission.

Q:   How many attempts are allowed in SNAP exam?

A:

Every candidate can make three attempts in SNAP exam. The SNAP 2023 exam will be conducted in three sessions in a gap of one or two weeks. Candidates can mention their number of attempts in the SNAP 2023 application form. However, they will have to pay application fee per session. Thus, candidates who are sure of making multiple attempts only then they should apply for multiple sessions as the fee amount is non-refundable.  The scores of best attempt will be taken into consideration for shortlisting of candidates for Group Exercise, Personal Interview and Writing Ability Test.

Ideally candidates must take all three attempts as the difficulty level of the sessions could be different and it may so happen that one session is easy and candidates can score high in that.
