    To my dismay, i have not been in touch with any of the University i had applied to for reasons being i don’t know their agency number and up to now i am in dilemma since the namelist of admitted students is already out. Base to my knowledge, i thought CSC will be responsible for the placement of my admission in to the three optional universities i had applied to and inform me whether i have been admitted to any of the University but up to now no information about it, could you please redirect me once again for the next chance to come such that i will not be in disarray any more, i mean applying through Program Category A might not be functional as it is a case now or else tell me what to do next.
