    Thanks for the timely information. My question is this, can a student register individually. Please I would like to know. Thanks once again for your effort

    Thelma. From the instruction provided, I don't think you can apply individually. You have to work in group, under the supervision of your lecturer or teacher. You can inform your teacher about the competition.
