Fees and payment

  1. You can make payment via the online payment option at the end of your exam registration booking. This option allows for instant payment confirmation or otherwise if it fails for any reason. You will have a personalised link that will allow you to attempt online payment up to ten (10) times before the link expires. You can also opt for offline payment via bank deposit/transfer using your unique reference number. Alternatively, you can quote your student number (if you are a continuing student) or your National ID / Passport number as the reference number on your deposit slip
  2. For candidates making payments via bank deposit/transfer, planning for an extra day or two to process payments is prudent.

3. Failure to quote a reference number when making offline payments may delay your application process. 

Important: You will not be allowed to sit an exam unless you have paid the fees.
