Hi there! I applied for the NOUN admission yesterday, was issued a unique ID which i then proceeded to pay via my atm card and was almost immediately issued an RRR. But when i try to follow the procedures after the payment, it doesn’t go through, instead it tells me to fill the pre payment form and continue with RRR. But when i do this, it still repeats the same thing.
