SFG – How it works 

              • Select Focus Group (SFG) is a small group of students who are selected by ForumIAS every year for coaching them to clear the UPSC Prelims Examination. Every single candidate selected and retained consistently in the group with Top ranks has cleared the Prelims examination in the past.
              • 100 Students will be selected for the Select Focus Group, through the SFG Entrance Test, who will be required to report at 7AM every day 6 days a week to write an hour-long test based on a pre-planned syllabus, followed by a discussion on the same. 
              • Candidates who are unable to make it to the SFG will be maintained in a Reserve List, who can also write the tests. 
              • Tests are conducted daily and results are provided within 8 hours of test with a Name and Rank list for candidates and parents to evaluate their daily performance. 
              • All candidates writing the CSE 2021 are eligible to apply for the entrance test.

              if the classes are being conducted online, then why is the fees increased to 2400+gst for sfg.

              sfg1 and sfg2 didn't have so much fees, not even for rlg

              There will no monthly reshuffle this time, as program will get over in about 1.5 months. This payment includes fees paid for the full duration.

              @ForumIAS-Academy  Any chance of being offline 


              We are doing it online only as of now. The offline call will be taken if any orders from govt come changing the current status. Also more than that, in offline mode more than 1000+ candidates may end up writing tests, we don’t want to be ones who put at risk so many people. Even if it’s not fatal, some of our students have reported long term impacts and weakness for months.

              Got your point 😊, but I was not asking about appearing in the entrance test, wanted to know if the program can be offline, or atleast if you can allow collecting question paper at 7 am from the centre. 

              Not asking for any exception here, just want to know if it's possible. 

              Considering this actively.

               I've few doubts regarding the program 

              1. Would tests be accessible to attempt later after few weeks? 
              2. If not, whether we can still view them post the scheduled date?
              3. Will we get a downloadable pdf of questions?

              I have been a part of the last two SFGs. I might be able to help here based on my past experience. 

              1. You can not attempt the test later. Attempting the test is allowed only in the given time slot. 

              2. You will be provided with a pdf of the questions along with answers after the test is over and you can download that and solve it at ur own end.

              Can someone who’s been a part of this before explain the difference between SFG and RLG? 

              Both can write tests, will both be provided with daily ranks, solutions and discussion video?
