    Hi, Please the application form and essay documents cannot be opened. What programme should be used to open them?

    • bakhtiar-admin says:

      You should be able to open it with Microsoft Office Word programme. I guess the version installed in your system is the 2003 or earlier version, rendering it unable to read .docx file extension. In this regard, we have change the application form into .doc file extension and you should now be able to open it with Microsoft Office Word 2003 or earlier versions. Thank You and all the best of luck!
