Hi, I have 95.8 for SNAP. Will I get a call from SCMHRD for business analytics and how should I prepare for its computer exam.

Nihal Kumar Gupta Student Expert 14th Jan, 2020

Hi Vineet,

As you have secured a good percentile score in SNAP exam. As you have secured only 95.8 percentile in SNAP you would only get call from Symbiosis institutes. On the percentile secured by you, you have a chance to get good colleges. The colleges you get are:



SIBM Bangalore

SIOM Nashik





Symbiosis Institute of business, Hyderabad-- MBA Course

SIHS Pune --- MBA IN hospital management

SSSS Pune--- MBA in sports management

these are the colleges, from which you would get a call on the basis of your SNAP percentile.


My SNAP score is 59.75 and Percentile is 74.62. What are my chances? I wish to get into SIIB Blore. Will I get in? Also, is the percentile too low according to the score this year?


Aashvi, some colleges that accept a score of 74.62 percentile have been listed here:

  • SIMC Pune
  • SCIT Pune
  • SSMC Bangalore
  • SSBF Pune
  • SIHS Pune
  • SIBM Hyderabad
  • SIBM Nagpur
  • SSSS Pune

Also please note that you can get a call from any of these institutions only if you had applied for it during the registration period.

SIIB has its centre in Pune not in Bangalore. It requires at least 93 percentile to get a call from SIIB Pune. So I am sorry but you will not be able to get a call from them.

And regarding your percentile, it means that your performance was better than 74.62% of the candidates appearing in the exam. This year there was a drastic change in the score vs percentile data, as it depends on the difficulty level of the question paper and relative performance of the appearing candidates. So it is more accurate to judge your performance on the basis of the percentile, not the SNAP score. Although the percentile this year has decreased compared to previous years' percentile, for a given SNAP score.
