    SNAP 2018 selection procedure is a two-step process. MBA aspirants seeking admission to B-schools accepting SNAP 2018 score need to qualify in both these processes in order to secure a seat. Considering that around 60,000 candidates appear for the SNAP Test every year, the competition is high and therefore the two step process ensures that only the right candidates, those who are eligible for the admission to Symbiosis allied B-schools are selected through this process.

     

    The detailed overview and understanding of the SNAP 2018 selection procedure is given below:

    SNAP 2018 MBA entrance test – Selection Procedure

    As stated above, securing a seat at any of the 15 participating institutes for SNAP 2018 would require a candidate to clear two steps i.e.

    Step 1: Clearing the SNAP Test 2018

    Candidates will have to appear for SNAP Test 2018 and score well in the test in order to surpass the SNAP 2018 cut-offs announced by various participating B-schools. Different MBA Colleges allied with Symbiosis University would announce separate cut-offs depending upon the availability of seats, programmes offered and specializations available at the institute. Candidates will have to get SNAP 2018 score which is more than the cut-off announced by the B-school in order to be shortlisted for further rounds.

    Step 2: GE / PI / WAT Rounds

    The second step in the SNAP 2018 selection process would involve participating and clearing the three personality test rounds i.e. Group Exercise (GE), Writing Ability Test (WAT) and Personal Interaction (PI). The further screening rounds of GE, WAT and PI are held by different B-schools as per their convenience.

    SNAP 2018 Selection Procedure Events

    Generally speaking, the SNAP 2018 selection procedure begins in the month of December with the SNAP 2018 exam. The SNAP Test 2018 will most likely be held in the third week of December. This is generally followed by the announcement of SNAP 2018 Result. Post this, respective B-schools announce their SNAP 2018 cut-offs and invite shortlisted candidates for further screening through personality tests i.e. GE / PI / WAT. The tentative timeline for the same is given in the table below:

    P.S.: Candidates appearing for SNAP 2018 must note that the dates given in the above table are tentative and subject to change as per the SNAP Test organizers.

    SNAP 2018 Final Merit – Weightage of GE / PI / WAT rounds

    The selection of MBA aspirants for final admission would be done through a SNAP 2018 merit list which would be prepared by the respective participating institutes. The final SNAP 2018 merit list would be prepared following the ratio of weight given in the table below:

    SNAP 2018 Selection Component

    Weight in the Final Merit List

    SNAP Test 2018 Score (scaled to 50 marks)

    50

    Personal Interview (PI)

    30

    Group Exercise (GE)

    10

    Written Ability Test (WAT)

    10

    Total Score

    100

    As given above, the SNAP Score 2018 would play a major role when it comes to final selection of the candidates, as it weighs a hefty 50 in the overall merit scale. Personal Interview round is the second most important exam component that will be critical to selection of the candidates.

    Apart from the aforementioned criteria, some B-schools may also consider academic and professional profiles i.e. work experience of candidates while selecting candidates for the final admission.

    P.S.: The above given breakup of SNAP 2018 weightage is indicative and many MBA institutes allied with Symbiosis International University may alter the weightage and selection criteria as per their admission policy. MBA aspirants are requested to cross-verify the weightage ratio from the official site of the participating institutes.
