The selection process for the SET 2021, after the declaration of the SET exam results for shortlisted candidates, varies among different institutes. The SET 2021 Counselling dates have not been announced yet and are likely to be announced soon. The candidates need to qualify the PI-WAT (Personal Interview and Writing Ability Test) after qualifying the entrance exam. The SET 2021 Counselling process is given below.

  • Personal Interview or PI - The candidates will have to take an interview with experts from industries or Academics. The SET 2021 PI will cover subjects of General awareness, Extracurricular activities, Academics and candidate-specific fields of interest, communication skills, and overall personality.
  • WAT or Written Ability Test - The candidates must take a PAT or Picture Association Test and write a short essay on the topic given by the panel of experts. There might also be subjective questions asked about the topic for the SET 2021 WAT. 

They can get admissions to their desired institute based on their performance in the Symbiosis Entrance test 2021 and the PI-WAT. The SET 2021 counselling session will be notified to the candidate appearing for the SET exam. The SET 2021 Counselling process will be likely held from August to September 2021.

The SET 2021 counselling session is an important part of the admission process because this is the process during which the candidates can choose the institutes and courses of their preference. The choice of institute and course must be made keeping their careers in mind, as this is one of the most important decisions to be made along the career path.
