* This course rewards and eliminates candidates for non-performance and absence from program. This has to be taken in the right spirit for the overall successful conduction of the program.
* Question Papers are not allowed to be shared with other candidates after the Test. If any candidate is found helping candidates inside or outside the examination hall, his candidature for the rest of the program will be canceled without warning.
* The shared cost of the program will be borne by you (40%) and ForumIAS ( 60%). The amount paid by you will depend upon which group you belong to at the end of every four weeks. The management decision will be final.
* This program provides for 2 days of leisure – Saturday- Sunday or any other days to all candidates. This can be used for revision, preparation for next week and doing any work that you would otherwise do in the weekdays. At no cost a weekday must be wasted by you for socializing and other works. You are not unemployed , you have decided not to work and prepare for the exam. There is a difference.
* Candidates who do not write the Test on designated day and time will be awarded 0 marks. Question Paper for later attempting will not be allowed. There is no flexibility in this program. Flexibility kills discipline.
