  1. I did all of that, I got an email of confirmation but I didn’t see an “application successful” page. Did I still apply or was it declined?

    1. Hello Courage,

      We are sorry but it would appear an empty form on our backend since the filled and files would not have been successfully uploaded.

      It should redirect automatically after payment is successful on the Paystack gateway. If it remains on the ‘Payment successful’ page, please hit the back button once to return and it will load automatically (on mobile phones). It shows the ‘Success’ page once upload is complete.

      1. That’s not fair. But I paid for it. And after every upload I wait for a while on the page but ntn comes up😭😭
