  1. the deadline of payment is too close as most parents employed and unemployed average less than rtgs$1150 per month that is to cater for all their monthly needs,mostly the rtgs$1150 is in mobile or banking system of which using mobile transaction is many students will be denied of chance to seat for examinations
