    • Hey Gagandeep,
      There is no mention for final year graduate students who will be appearing for the test, however, it is clearly mentioned in the brochure that you should have passed Graduation/Post-Graduation in a relevant school subject. But you can contact the concerned authorities to confirm your eligibility.
