SIU Pune determines the SNAP Exam Eligibility before SNAP exam every year. Apart from the ensuring their SNAP 2018 Eligibility, the candidates appearing in SNAP exam also have to check the Institute Level Eligibility Criteria which can be different from the SNAP Exam Eligibility 2018.

 

Two levels of SNAP Eligibility Criteria:
The guidelines issued by SIU Pune in regard to SNAP Exam Eligibility 2018 are:

  • Eligibility criteria for SNAP Exam: A graduate from any recognized / statutory University with a minimum of 50% marks (45% for SC/ST) can apply and appear in the SNAP exam.
  • Eligibility Criteria for Symbiosis Institutes: Programmes which require specific discipline/ subject specialisation offered by different Symbiosis Institutes like SSSS, Pune; SIHS Pune; SCIT Pune; SITM Pune; SCMHRD Pune; SIOM Nashik have their own eligibility criteria which should be checked on the Institute website. You should be an engineering graduate for admission to MBA Infrastructure Management at SCMHRD or to MBA Operations Management at SIOM Nashik. You must have studied Mathematics in class 12 to become eligible for MBA at SCIT and so on.
  • Eligibility for Foreign University Students: SNAP 2018 exam eligibility for a candidate who has completed qualifying degree from any Foreign University is that he/she must obtain an equivalence certificate from the Association of Indian Universities (AIU). All foreign degrees/ qualifications need to be verified from AIU by the candidate before seeking admission to any programme of SIU. After the Evaluation Division of the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) issues equivalence certificate for foreign degrees/qualifications, the candidate will have SNAP exam eligibility and admission eligibility to the respective Symbiosis MBA programme.

Check Eligibility before Applying:
If you are not eligible to apply to the MBA programme of your preferred Symbiosis institute, your SNAP application and exam fee will not be refunded by the Test conducting authority. So, ensure your SNAP exam eligibility before applying for SNAP 2018 exam and also the institute level SNAP 2018 eligibility before making payment of SNAP exam fee and Institute application fee.
