After this, Check your email and you would see a message containing a link, click the link and it would take you to the next phase of the registration.
On this page, 2 informations are required, but you would only fill one as the second one had been auto fill using the information sent by your school. The part you would fill is the credentials part and then confirm the information as been correct before clicking the “submit and continue” button.
The next page that would open would be for payment if incase you would want to receive your call up number and letter in your email, it cost 3k to register for this. If you aren’t interested, it isn’t mandatory. To continue without payment, click the “continue without payment” option and you would be taken to the fingerprint scanner.
