This article discusses what to do when you encounter the insufficient balance message in your college application process.

Understanding the Root of the Problem:

The message of insufficient balance is a common issue in the college application process.

However, it is often caused by technical glitches on the website, especially with the CoE Portal that is connected to the WAEC Results data base.

The ‘bundle’ responsible for providing access to the applicant’s results at WAEC sometimes gets exhausted, causing the insufficient balance message to appear.

Maximizing Your Time:

While waiting for the system restoration, it is essential to make good use of your time.
