SNAP 2022 Results

SNAP 2022 results will be declared on the SNAP website on 10-Jan-2023. Enter your registration number, name or date of birth to view your result. The results will contain both section-wise and overall scores and percentiles.

The results of the test and your academic profile will form the basis of the second round of admission process, i.e. the Personal Interaction and Writing Ability Test (PI-WAT). Shortlisting for PI-WAT is carried out by summing up a scaled score of SNAP test (SNAP score scaled to 40) and scaled score of academic profile (scaled from 15 to ten). The final score will be converted to percentiles and each participating institute will communicate a cut-off score to the University. The University will then release a list of shortlisted candidates for respective programmes at the institutes.
