  1. Your username is your registration number without the '/'s, and all lowercase so a typical one is    bsbsu2b0108   instead of    BSBSU/2B/01/08
  2. Your password - the "default password" is Pass1234* just like that, with the capitals and small letters just so: this is in case you have never logged in before.
  3. Once you do log in, you will be asked to replace your password with something else: Note that the system only accepts passwords with
  4. At least one capital letter (e.g. the "P" above)
  5. At least one small case letter (e.g. "a" or "s" etc.)
  6. At least one number (e.g. the "1" or "4" above)
  7. At least one character that is neither number nor letter (e.g. the "*" above)
  8. The password must have at least 8 characters
  9. It will continue to reject your password choice until it meets all the conditions.
