The uproar caused by students for the alleged wrong questions in the SNAP 2011 exam had compelled the Symbiosis International University (SIU) to set up an external committee.

The external committee looking into the issues of alleged plagiarism and wrong questions in the SNAP 2011 exam has now decided to cancel 5 erroneous questions from the SNAP 2011 exam. The external committee has found the erroneous question numbers 34, 38, 46, 65 and 112 of Set “E”, which were the same but with different question numbers in the sets -“F”, “G” and “H”.

As a result of the decision given by the external committee, SIU declared that this time the final assessment will take place out of 175 marks instead of 180.

Even though the SNAP aspirants have got some sense of relief from this decision, they still tend to claim that SNAP had 7 wrong questions in the logical reasoning and quantitative aptitude section, wherein either the question did not have the correction option as an answer or the data provided in the question was inconsistent. 

However, the committee has claimed that such errors should not affect the capability of the student to select the right alternative. However, the committee declared that some benefits should definitely be given to test takers due to which the cancellation of 5 wrong questions is being made.

The SIU authorities also cleared the plagiarism allegations made by students claiming that similarity or resemblance of questions from any coaching institute’s website cannot be termed as plagiarism and is purely coincidental.
