The Symbiosis National Aptitude Test (SNAP) is the entrance exam for candidates aspiring to join postgraduate management programs at Symbiosis International University (SIU) and its affiliated institutes. Every year candidates are selected based on the percentile achieved by them on their SNAP scores.

With theย SNAP 2024 exam approaching, it's important for candidates to understand the difference between their SNAP score and percentile, as both play a crucial role in the selection process. This article details the distinction between SNAP Score and SNAP Percentile, and what students can expect with SNAP 2024.

## What is SNAP score?

The SNAP score is the raw score that candidates achieve based on their performance in the exam. The SNAP test typically consists of three sections i.e., General English (Reading Comprehension, Verbal Reasoning, Verbal Ability), Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency, and Analytical & Logical Reasoning.

Each correct answer rewards a +1 score while incorrect answers attract a penalty of -0.25. For un-attempted questions candidates get 0 marks. For SNAP 2024, the maximum score is expected to be 60.

Here is the detailed table depicting marking scheme of section of the SNAP exam:

 Section Total Questions Total Marks (possible) Marks per Correct Answer Negative Marking General English: Reading Comprehension, Verbal Reasoning, Verbal Ability 15 15 +1 -0.25 Quantitative, Data Interpretation & Data Sufficiency 20 20 +1 -0.25 Analytical & Logical Reasoning 25 25 +1 -0.25 Total 60 60 - -

### Calculation of SNAP Score

Here is how SNAP score is calculated:

(Total Correct Questions * 1) โ (Total Incorrect Questions * 0.25) = Total SNAP Score

## What is SNAP Percentile?

The percentile is a comparative measure that shows a candidate's performance versus other test-takers. It indicates the percentage of candidates who have scored less than a particular candidate. For instance, if a candidate has a percentile of 90, it means they have scored better than 90% of the candidates who appeared for the exam.

### Calculation of Percentile

The SNAP percentile is calculated using the following formula:

[(Total Number of Candidates - Rank of a Candidate) / Total Number of Candidates] x 100 = SNAP Percentile

## Importance of SNAP Score Vs Percentile

Understanding the difference between score and percentile is important for SNAP aspirants. While the raw score indicates how well a candidate has performed on the test, the percentile showcases their performance in comparison to others. Both of these metrics are important and required during the admission process.

• Further Shortlisting: Symbiosis Institutes use the percentile to shortlist candidates for the next rounds of selection, which typically include Group Exercise (GE), Written Ability Test (WAT), and Personal Interview (PI). A higher percentile increases the chances of being shortlisted.
• Final Admission: The final admission offer is based on a composite score, which considers the SNAP score, performance in GE, WAT, PI, and sometimes past academic records and work experience. However, the initial percentile plays an important role in the final admission list.

## SNAP Score Vs Percentile 2023

As noted earlier, the easier difficulty level and the significantly higher number of test takers led to a substantial increase in the SNAP marks vs percentile in 2023 as compared to SNAP 2022. The score needed to reach the 99th percentile was above 45, compared to around 40 in 2022. Similarly, the 95th percentile score for 2023 was over 40, whereas in 2022, it was approximately 34-35. Predicting the score vs percentile relationship has become increasingly challenging over the years due to the high subjectivity of the exam.

 SNAP Percentile 2023 (Approx) SNAP Score 99.9% 52+ 99.5% 47+ 99% 45+ 98.5% 43+ 95% 39+ 93% 38.5+ 90% 36+ 85% 34.5+ 75% 30+ 65% 28+

## SNAP Score Vs Percentile 2024 (Expected)

By understanding the comparison between score and percentile, SNAP aspirants can better set their targets to achieve the desired results. Here is the expected SNAP Score vs. Percentile data for 2024:

 SNAP Percentile 2024 (Expected) SNAP Score 99.5 47+ 99 46+ 97 43+ 95 40+ 93 39+ 90 37+ 85 35+ 80 32+ 75 31+

### College-wise SNAP Score Vs Percentile 2024

This data represents the required SNAP score and percentile needed to secure admission into the top 5 Symbiosis institutes:

 Symbiosis Colleges Cut Off Score Percentile Cut Off (Expected) Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Pune 43-45 98+ Symbiosis Centre for Management and Human Resource Development (SCMHRD), Pune 40-43 97+ Symbiosis Institute of International Business (SIIB), Pune 35-38 93+ Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Bengaluru 30+ 90+ Symbiosis Institute of Operations Management (SIOM), Nashik 27+ 85+

## Conclusion

In conclusion, understanding the SNAP score and percentile is important for aspirants as the score shows individual performance, while the percentile indicates how a candidate performed in comparison to others. Both of these criteria are key to getting into a top Symbiosis institute. With diligent preparation and a clear strategy, candidates can achieve a high score and strong percentile, paving the way for success in SNAP 2024.
