Symbiosis International University extends registration dates, defers entrance exam due to COVID-19
The test structure for the examination remains the same. The entrance tests will be conducted in a Computer Based Test (CBT) mode
In the wake of the unprecedented global crisis, the test date for SET/SLAT/SEED/SITEEE, which was May 2, 2020 earlier, has been postponed by Symbiosis International (Deemed University) [SIU], and consequently the last date for SET registrations has been extended from April 16 to May 10, 2020.
It is expected that the university will announce the new test date as soon as the external situation permits. Aspirants are advised to visit the SET website on a regular basis for updates and important announcements. They will also be notified on their registered email IDs and mobile numbers.
"SIU promotes the health and wellness of its students and stands tall beside the Government which is taking precautionary measures in these tough times. We are hopeful that the situation will be under control soon. After carefully scrutinizing the situation, we have arrived at the decision of postponing the test dates as well as revising the entire date structure that was to be followed for the SET tests." said Dr Rajani Gupte, Vice Chancellor, Symbiosis International (Deemed University).
Every year SIU conducts entrance tests for admission to its 15 institutes offering 21 undergraduate programmes in Management, Law, Engineering, Economics, Mass Communication, Liberal Arts, Design, IT and Computer Applications, Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management.
The test structure for the examination remains the same. The entrance tests will be conducted in a Computer Based Test (CBT) mode, simultaneously across 80 cities all over India. The tests will be conducted in two slots, the morning session, which will take place from 9:30 am to 12:00 noon, and the afternoon session from 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm.
