Initially, the window was opened on Saturday, October 7th, 2023 and was scheduled to be closed on Sunday, October 22nd, 2023.

The decision to extend for seven (07) days aims at providing an opportunity for qualified applicants who have not applied or are yet to complete their applications to utilise  the extended period to finalise and submit their applications online.
