    the school fee, including your
    medical tution and i think
    enrollment fee………the initial price
    you must pay is written there……don’t be paniced if you
    don’t see your course….the course
    space is currently vacant, and you
    can only see it after you have paid half of the money…….you are required to do your bio data capture and fill in your course……but you must pay first…… pay, go to any
    bank in unilag, slice out the cash,
    and pay the fee………after that, log in and fill in your details….remember to go to a cyber cafe, to fill your form,
    one equiped with a biometric
