In addition, students who did not apply through their schools and missed the first revision of choices are being urged to use this opportunity to submit their applications.

The applicants will be required to select new choices from the degree, diploma and craft/artisan certificate courses with unfilled capacities, which are also listed on the website, and submit afresh.

Applicants whose index numbers are not in the list on the website have already provisionally secured one of their choices, hence are not required to reapply.
