Prepare for SNAP GE-PIWAT

Each SNAP exam participant will be eligible to participate in the GE/PI/WAT round of the SNAP selection procedure of the institutes they shall have applied for in the SNAP application form. However, the selection will be based on the candidates’ SNAP score/percentile. Each institute will set a cut-off percentile, and candidates who score higher than this cut-off will be considered for GE/PI/WAT. 

Aspirants must possess strong communication skills and should be updated with current affairs to qualify for the GE/PI/WAT rounds. In GE, applicants will be divided into batches and will be given a case to discuss.

The WAT is an essay writing test in which students are assigned a topic on which they must compose a brief passage. Aspirants will have to go through a personal interview with a panel of experts in the PI round. The questions will cover a wide range of topics, from hobbies to future goals.
