Hi Sathi,
Take a look at the Sun practice exam . When you start the practice exam you'll see a license agreement. There are two such similar questions at the beginning of the real exam (they used to have the text on-line but I can't find it any more ). Just remember that if you 'reject' the license agreements you will be bounded out of the exam and need to re-register.
If I remember correctly your 120 minutes starts the minute you start the test ie you are not given additional time to read the agreements.
The testing environment is normally a room with up to four or more workstations. There may be people taking other tests at the same time your taking yours.
The exam format is very similar to the practice exam. When you reach the end of the exam you are given an opportunity to return to 'marked' questions. Incomplete questions are also highlighted and you can return to them.
Hope that helps.
All the best for Tuesday.
