Shortlisting for PI-WAT is carried out by summing up a scaled score of SNAP test (SNAP score scaled to 40) and scaled score of academic profile (scaled from 15 to ten). The final score will be converted to percentiles and each participating institute will communicate a cut-off score to the University. The University will then release a list of shortlisted candidates for respective programmes at the institutes.
