The application called SNAP Study Planner has four sections which suggests students various topics to prepare for. Not only that, this option also gives students the chance to get a fair idea of what areas the exam would cover. The aspirants can also add topics for themselves to prepare for and set reminders. The application already quite popular enables students to share the same with their friends.

What is important to note is that it also hosts videos of several colleges giving the aspirants an insight into the features and advantages each institute brings with it. This gives the students an idea about the inside life of a student at Symbiosis.

A SNAP spokesperson of the University said that "We always wanted to be close to students and facilitate their process of SNAP preparation; moreover with them spending most of their time on Social media, the decision was not a tough one to make". He also went on to say that "Social media is the best form of interaction since it does not allow any scope of assumptions and hence counters misnomers and rumors". In the coming days as the heat builds up for SNAP, Symbiosis shall have more interactions on their site in more innovative ways.
