Well, it’s a complex thing to discuss but I will make it simple for you.
Candidates Use Part-Time Programmes to Avoid UTME
And truly, if you’d sought admission through part-time programmes in the past, you’re free from the hurdle of writing UTME and JAMB entirely. But as time went on, JAMB devised a means to make sure those who had been offered admissions through PT will still have to register with JAMB; even though they won’t write UTME or exams of any type by JAMB.
The system was devised to collect these applicants’ data so that they will be recognized as students who were educated in Nigeria. Also, to help them have JAMB registration numbers which they didn’t have because they went for part-time courses. More so, to help them use the same JAMB registration numbers for HND or Direct entry admission if they want to proceed with their studies. Furthermore, to help them have JAMB registration numbers to be used for NYSC mobilization and registration.
This process is called JAMB regularisation. This should be cleared to candidates who had done part-time courses (be it daily part-time or regular part-time) in the past. Candidates will need to register this with JAMB if they must be mobilized for NYSC or are proposing to use Direct Entry admission.
2019 Part-Time Applicants Will Not Do JAMB Regularization, But JAMB PT Application
The statement above says it all as succinctly as possible. If you’re just registering for 2019, 2020, and beyond part-time programmes of any polytechnic, the management may ask you to register for the JAMB part-time application form. This should be done after you’d completed and submitted the polytechnic application form online. Get more ideas in, “JAMB Regularization For Direct Entry (DE): Procedures, Price and Closing Date“
Below are the instructions according to the two polytechnics in southwest Nigeria – emphasizing that Part-time applicants must apply for the JAMB PT form.
Upon admission, candidates are expected to visit any JAMB accredited CBT Centre to fill the JAMB part-time form for Three thousand Five hundred thousand naira (N3,500) only.
Kindly be advised that Candidates who applied for Daily Part-Time (DPT)
and Regular Part-Time (RPT) are expected to register on CAPS (JAMB
Site)in order to acquire JAMB Registration Number, which will be
required to Process the Admission
However, if you’re already running a part-time programme from the 2018 or before, you may still need to go for regularisation instead of the JAMB part-time application.
Is It Compulsory to Apply for JAMB Part-time Application?
As a matter of fact, you had seen above that you may eventually need a JAMB registration number to further your studies or proceed to NYSC. Then, there may not be a need to reexplain why this process may be compulsory for you.
By “part-time” in this context, I mean university, polytechnic and NCE part-time candidates – be it daily or regular. No available updates as to whether university degree part-time candidates are required to do the same.
However, without the registration, the polytechnic may still offer you admission. Yet, you will be required, by some, to give them evidence of your JAMB part-time registration before being offered a space.
Whereas the price is N3,500 at the nearest CBT centre. Hence, I don’t expect you to defer things until later.
