It’s not uncommon to find students with fine results but held back by D7 or E8 in English. This was why I gave you, “15+ Universities That Accept D7 and E8 in English for Admission”.

If you notice, that talks on universities and science courses strictly. What of polytechnics that will accept an ordinary pass in English for some science, commercial and art courses?

This post may be the right guide for you if you prefer to check for any available polytechnics courses that you can chase with your D7 or E8 in English.

What to Know About this Collection of Schools Accepting Pass in English

Before we go any further, let me clarify a few things.
  1. All these polytechnics were extracted from the official JAMB brochure.
  2. I’d carefully studied and brought out what you’re looking for you.
  3. I’ve observed that polytechnics usually waive English for science courses rather than art and commercial courses.
  4. A school’s policy may change anytime. Hence, JAMB is to effect any possible change in their online brochure which you can check here too.
  5. Where JAMB brochure says ‘a school accepts or requires O’level pass”, it means D7 or E8. But where the brochure says, “a school accepts or requires O’level credit pass”, it means A1, B2, B3, C4, C5 or C6.
