The Symbiosis National Aptitude Test (SNAP) is an online competitive MBA entrance exam which is conducted by the Symbiosis International University. SNAP 2018 is likely to be conducted in the 3rd week of December 2018, and results for the same are expected to be released by the end of December 2018.
The entrance exam is a gateway to any one of the 15 institutes under the Symbiosis International University.
SNAP is an opportunity for an aspirant to take admission into a top private B-School of the country, SIBM Pune.
Apart from this, other management institutes that are desirable and which consider the SNAP score are SCMHRD, Pune and SIIB, Pune.
SIBM Pune is the main objective for all SNAP aspirants. This is because SIBM Pune offers its pupils an opportunity to learn from some of the best faculty members in the country, along with a chance to network with a bright set of peers; all at a huge and charming campus in the hills of Lavale.
The institute also serves as a platform to interview with huge global and Indian brands and offers 100% placement to all its students.
Further, there is likely to be an escalation in an MBA candidate's paycheck, as they are prepared to head into the corporate world and work for big organizations in all parts of the world.
The SNAP exam/paper pattern is as follows -
A total of 16-17 management institutes consider the SNAP results, including SIBM Pune, SIBM Bengaluru, SCMHRD, SIMS, SIOM etc.
The next SNAP exam is expected to be conducted in the 3rd week of December. The registrations are likely to begin from August till Mid-November.
The registration fee is expected to be the same as SNAP 2017, which is Rs. 1750.
Approximately 60,000-70,000 aspirants take the SNAP test. (Unverified)
SNAP is considered to be a relatively tough MBA exam but is considered to be easier than exams such as IIFT, CAT, and XAT. However, SNAP is a test of speed and accuracy, as a candidate has only 120 minutes to attempt a large number of questions. Therefore, SNAP is difficult in its own way.
Unless specified otherwise by Symbiosis, SNAP does not allow a candidate to use a physical or on-screen calculator. Only CAT allows for such a provision.
