What is Correction Form?

During physical clearance, some students that their names, date of birth and other information are not the same throughout their credentials are given a correction form to fill. This is not what you should wish for as a fresher. Correction form delays your clearance. While others are done with clearance and have resumed classes, this delay could keep you out of the class. To avoid this, ensure that your date of birth, name and other information are all in harmony in all your credentials.

After Physical Clearance, then what?

Once you are done with your physical clearance, you are expected to proceed to your faculty for faculty clearance. Once you are done with that, head down to your department and perform all necessary registrations. Ensure you register your courses, GST, etc. While running around for these registrations, do not forget to attend your classes. School resumed the day your name appeared on UNIBEN KOFA!
