Shiv Nadar University Undergraduate Admissions 2023

Shiv Nadar University is recruiting the best and the brightest students for the following Undergraduate Programs for admissions of 2023.

SNUSAT and APT is a combined three-hour AI based, remotely proctored test that will be administered in the comfort and safety of the candidate’s house. SNUSAT – Measure of proficiency in language, ability to apply mind to simple problems, data interpretation, logical and abstract reasoning. APT – Subject knowledge required for specific programs. As pioneers in India’s higher education scenario, we are among the first and very few to offer a remotely proctored admissions test to our aspirants. The step has been taken to ensure we handpick the best and brightest of the minds across the country, even in such challenging times of COVID-19 outbreak

The 3 hours standardized assessment consists of:

1. SNU Scholastic Aptitude Test (SNUSAT) for 2 hours (Same for all Programs)

*This program would be jointly offered by School of Humanities & Social Sciences & School of Management & Entrepreneurship

** Any one of the optional APT

If the same APT serves all the Programs that you have selected, no additional APT is required. For instance, all Engineering Programs require “Physics+ Maths”. This combination also makes you eligible for B.Sc (R) in Physics and B.Sc (R) in Mathematics.

If any of your Program preferences are mapped to a different APT, you are required to take the additional 30 min APT(s). However, there is no need to repeat SNUSAT. For instance, when Program preference 1 is B.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering and Program preference 2 is B.Sc. (Research) in Biotechnology, you first need to appear for SNUSAT + APTs “Physics+ Maths”. For B.Sc.(Research) in Biotechnology, you will have to give an additional APT of “Biology”.

All the questions except the SNUSAT Essay and Critical Writing in APT will be Multiple Choice Type. There is no negative marking.

SNUSAT Essay and Critical writing sections will have to be typed on the computer, within the stipulated time.
