  • Rex Manuel

    @,are you sure registration has not commenced yet?

    1. @Manuel, Well I'm not sure whether registration has commenced because ABU is yet to officially announce anything with regards to that.

    2. Rex Manuel

      @ my younger sister got the admission, as we waited for registration details and got no information, we decided to ask around, and someone who's wards got same admission said they already done registration, and that school will open on Monday (4th Jan). Though my sis is already in Zaria, and will be going to school to inquire if there's still chance for late registration.

    3. Manuel, that's quite bad because there was no official release of the registration details. However, your sister is on the right track and I'm sure she'll be able to do her registration if what this person says is true.

    4. Zaddaku Yahawa
