Symbiosis National Aptitude Online Test (SNAP) is a national level MBA Entrance test conducted by Symbiosis International (Deemed) University (SIU). It is a pathway to some of the top MBA colleges in the country.
SNAP 2020 is to be conducted for admissions into the upcoming batch of MBA (2021 - 2023). This year’s MBA Entrance Test is witnessing a lot of changes. One of the major alterations is that the test will be conducted three times on different dates starting from 20th December 2020, 6th January 2021, and 9th January 2021.
Out of the 3 tests scheduled to be conducted as per the new test format, the SIU has decided to allow the candidates to take 2 attempts. The best of the performance out of the attempts he/ she has made will be considered for final percentile calculation.
This year, the examination will contain 60 multiple choice questions divided into three sections: General English, Analytical and Logical Reasoning and Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency. The SNAP 2020 test will consist of only MCQs this year.
Students will be granted 1 mark for every correct answer while every incorrect answer will garner 25 percent negative marks.

The application fee is Rs. 1750/- for each attempt of SNAP 2020. The programme/college fee (Rs.1000/ per programme/college) is to be paid only once.
Find out the revised SNAP Exam pattern to understand this year’s test structure:
From this year onwards Symbiosis National Aptitude (SNAP) Test will carry 60 questions. In 2019, candidates were required to solve 115 questions in a 120-minutes SNAP exam.
Unlike the previous years where SNAP exam was a mix of Normal Questions (MCQs) and Special questions (non-MCQs), this year candidates will have to only solve 60 objective type questions.
SNAP 2020 will not see any differential marking scheme for various sections and composition of questions. The normal questions will carry 1 marks each and for each incorrect option, ¼ mark will be deducted. There will be no individual time limit for each section.
While the application fee will be Rs. 1750/- for each attempt of SNAP 2020. The programme/college fee (Rs.1000/ per programme/college) is to be paid only once.
