How is SNAP Result Compiled?
The SNAP result includes three major components – SNAP score, SNAP percentile and SNAP merit list. SNAP SCORE –
- SNAP score is calculated as per the predetermined marking scheme with the help of the official answer key
- 25% of the total marks per question will be deducted for an incorrect response
- SNAP score is evaluated out of a total of 150 marks
- SIU will use the following formula derived from marking scheme to calculate the SNAP score:
SNAP Score for Quant. Section = (Number of correct normal responses x 1) – (Number of incorrect normal responses x 0.25) + (Number of correct special responses x 2) – (Number of incorrect special responses x 0.5)
Note – The five special non-MCQs in Quant section carry the weightage of 2 marks each question.
SNAP Score for remaining sections = (Number of correct responses x 1.5) – (Number of incorrect responses x 0.375)
Total SNAP Score (out of 150) = SNAP Score in Quant. section + SNAP Score in remaining sections
SNAP PERCENTILE –
- Based on the total score of the candidate in SNAP, SIU calculates an overall percentile which is displayed on the SNAP scorecard
- Shortlisting of candidates for GE-PIWAT is done on the basis of SNAP percentile only
- A candidate obtaining 90 percentile shows that he/she has performed better than 90% of the candidates whereas 10% of the total test takers have a better score than the candidate with a 90 percentile
SNAP MERIT LIST –
- Candidates who qualify the SNAP test are called for the GE-PIWAT rounds in their preferred institutes based on the institute-wise SNAP cut off 2020
- After a candidate qualifies GE-PIWAT, a merit list is prepared for selecting the candidates for final admission
- Merit list is prepared by evaluating the candidate’s score in SNAP test, and performances in Group Exercise, Personal Interaction (PI), and Written Ability Test (WAT)
