    Let’s explore an exception to the rule
    The 2018 SNAP entrance exam eligibility is 50% marks in graduation and your Institute level SNAP eligibility for SIBM Pune, or SIBM Bangalore is also 50% marks. However, if you don’t have an engineering degree or didn’t pass Mathematics in class 12, you won't be able to apply for admission to SIOM Nashik, SCMHRD MBA Infrastructure Management or SCIT.
