The online application link for SET 2016 will be made available at set-test.org. The application dates for admissions through SET 2016 and JEE Main 2016 will, however, differ. You are to fill in your application form online and also pay an amount of Rs.1500/- towards test and prospectus fee. This fee can either be remitted online using your Credit/Debit Card or one of the net banking options or you could directly pay the amount in cash at any branch of the Axis Bank or Indian Bank. The payment will also be accepted via Demand Draft. The Demand Draft should, however, be drawn from any nationalized bank and should be in favor of the ‘Symbiosis Test Secretariat’, payable at Pune.
The admit cards of SET 2016 will be issued online. You are to download and print the admit card through the authorized website of SET before the date of the exam. The admit card is essential to confirm your candidature for the entrance exam. Without the admit card, you will not be permitted to appear for the exam. You are also required to carry a valid photo ID proof along with your admit card when reporting for the exam.
The Symbiosis Entrance Test (SET) 2016 is an objective test. You will be allowed 150 minutes (two and a half hours) to complete the test. The test paper for engineering courses is typically split into three sections, comprising of 25 questions each from the subjects of Physics & Chemistry and 50 questions from the subject of Mathematics. You will be given four options for each question and you will have to choose one correct answer. While you get 2 marks each for every correct answer that you give, no penalty will be imposed for any incorrect answer that you have given. So you could even take a guess at the answers if you like!
Selection for admissions will be done either on the basis of your rank in SET 2016 or your All India Rank in JEE (Main) 2016, depending on the channel through which you are applying. The Institute holds separate counselling for SET applicants and JEE Main applicants.
