This objective type test carries 150 multiple-choice questions (MCQs) divided into four sections to be solved in a 2-hour duration.

Dr. Pranav Vyas, Ph.D., Head – STS, Symbiosis International University, said “We are very excited to announce the SNAP dates for aspirants who are looking for admission in 2019. Each year a large number of students take admission through this national examination process and we are hopeful that this year we will be able to surpass the previous year’s application records. SNAP gives students the opportunity to apply to 23 programmes which are offered by our 15 institutes. I wish heaps of success to all candidates yet to sit for their exams.”
