In case you are late by 10 minutes, you will be awarded penalty marks of -5. If you report to the venue 15 minutes after the test commencement, under no circumstance will you be allowed to write the Test.

  4. Candidates are expected not to argue with staff or make requests which violate the conduct rules stated here, as the staff will have no discretion to violate any of the rules.
  5. Candidates who will be joining SFG / RLG in offline mode after the entrance Test must stick to offline mode of Test Taking only. Under no circumstance will they be allowed to migrate to online mode. Similarly candidates writing the Test online will not be allowed to write the Test in offline mode under any circumstance.
  6. In an exceptional situation where a genuine need for the same exists, candidates will be required to pay the full fee for the month for online mode or offline mode for such migration. This can be only done once. This program offers no flexibility. This is done to avoids the situation where candidates join in offline mode and start taking Tests in online mode for the purpose of using unfair means.
  7. For students opting for offline mode sfg, incase any government directives to stop offline mode in any city – Delhi/ Hyderabad / Patna, we will shift you to online mode and there will be no refund on grounds that you wanted to take the program in offline mode only.
