This post will answer your question of if it’s possible to gain admission to polytechnics without JAMB. Candidates who missed JAMB registrations or failed it may choose to consider polytechnics that give admissions without JAMB UTME.
Gaining admissions into polytechnics without JAMB is equally called direct admission by some folks. It’s widely called daily part-time form. So if you want a direct admission, read this post to the end.
What is Admission Without JAMB?
This is the admission that can be gained without writing UTME. It means you won’t have to pass through JAMB before being offered admission or you don’t need UTME results.
We all know that to gain admissions in Nigeria now, candidates must write UTME or obtain a Direct Entry form and produce the required cut-off marks by their proposed institutions. For polytechnics, cut-off marks range from 100 to 170. And such an offer may also require writing post UTME or participating in the online or physical screening.
Whereas, some polytechnics, apart from admissions through JAMB, still offer admissions directly to admission seekers. This is called direct admission or admissions without UTME. This program is popularly known as daily part-time (DPT or DPP).
It’s so-called because admitted candidates will also spend 2 years for their National Diploma (ND) courses like their full-time counterparts (those who entered with JAMB UTME).
