Registration


GENERAL GUIDELINES

Please go through all the guidelines highlighted below BEFORE registering for the DELF-DALF Exam! It is the candidate’s responsibility to go through them BEFORE they register. Failure to abide with even a single one of these rules will result in the candidate being declared as non-admissible i.e. they will NOT be allowed to appear for the exam and their DELF/DALF fees will NOT be refunded/transferred under any circumstances. A penalty of Rs. 2,360/- will be levied against ALL candidates who break even a single rule in any way [ including External Candidates registering as Internal Candidates, candidates below 18 years of age registering for the DELF-DALF Tout Public Exam, Candidates who register for the wrong level/wrong centre etc. ]

NOTE:

  • ALL Candidates who have appeared for ANY DELF-DALF Exam in the past are expected to enter the same 12 digit Candidate Code Number which was allocated to them previously [ this candidate code number is mentioned on the candidate’s DELF-DALF Certificates ]. Candidates who already have a candidate code number and do not enter the same at the time of registration will NOT be allowed to sit for the exams and their examination fees will NOT be refunded/transferred under any circumstances.
  • Alliance Française de Bombay will be following the protocols outlined by the Central Government of India and the State Government of Maharashtra for the exams.

It is mandatory for the candidate to carry and wear their own mask properly (nose + mouth covered) throughout their interaction with our staff AND during the exam. It is also mandatory for each candidate to carry an extra mask as a back-up. Any unruly conduct entitles Alliance Française de Bombay to ask the candidate to leave immediately. The examination fees of such candidates will be considered forfeited and will NOT be refunded/transferred to another session under ANY circumstances.
