This post will answer your question of if it’s possible to gain admission to polytechnics without JAMB. Candidates who missed JAMB registration may choose to consider polytechnics that give admission without JAMB UTME.

Gaining admission into polytechnics without JAMB is equally called direct admission by some folks. So if you want a direct admission, read this post to the end

The above are a few of the polytechnics that you can gain admission into with or without JAMB.

More will be added to the list sooner.

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 result.

We all know that to gain admission in Nigeria now, candidates must write UTME 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.

Whereas the polytechnics above, apart from admissions through JAMB, still offer admissions directly to admission seekers. This is called direct admission or admissions without UTME. This programme is popular know as daily part-time (DPT or DPP).

It’s so called because admitted candidates will also spend 2 years for their National Diploma (ND) course like their full-time counterparts (those who entered with JAMB).

What is the Difference Between DPT, DPP and FT Programmes?

Other Polytechnics Offering Admissions (Regular Part-time) without JAMB 

Generally, what we had before was the regular part-time programme. The difference between them is while DPT is 2 -year, regular PT is 3. Generally, all polytechnics running part-time programme that is not DPT offer admission on regular PT. You don't need JAMB to be offered admission here. A few of them are below.
  1. Lagos State Polytechnic
  2. Niger State Polytechnic
  3. Federal Polytechnic Bida
  4. Federal Polytechnic Ilaro 
  5. Federal College of Agriculture, Moor Plantation Ibadan
  6. Federal College of Agriculture, Akure

What is the Process for Admission without JAMB (Daily Part-Time Programme)?

The polytechnics will publish the admission adverts when the time comes. You can click on the link above to check if this year admission form is on sales for each of the polytechnics.
  • O’level results only are required for candidates to be admitted (5 credit passes in relevant subjects)
  • Candidates may be or may not be required to write entrance exams to be admitted.
  • JAMB result is not needed except for the Polytechnic Ibadan that needs it for evidence of registration for UTME only and not necessarily a must.

The Aftermath of Direct Admission/Daily Part Time or Admission without JAMB

If you’re offered admission without JAMB:
  • After you complete your ND, you may need to do JAMB regularization to proceed to HND level.
  • If you wish to further to a university through the direct entry form, regularization is compulsory
  • You will equally be required to undergo one-year Industrial training if you must proceed to HND. This is equally applicable to your full-time counterparts.
