Is Part-Time (Daily/Regular) Admission Sure and Better?

You're likely to ask if part-time admission is certain if you've been let down by JAMB. In the last UTME, most candidates were disappointed by their scores. As a result, they wanted to consider part-time programmes.

Here comes that question of if JAMB can disappoint you, won't you still be disappointed if you go for a part-time admission? Is part-time a guaranteed admission? Or there can still be some letdowns as well?

This post will answer your question as quickly as possible but before then, let's get a few things clear.

What's a Part-time Programme?

This is a university, polytechnic or college of education academic course that won't require applicants to obtain the JAMB UTME/DE form and/or sit for UTME.

As one of the no-UTME mediums to gain admission, part-time will help you avoid writing UTME or passing it. In other words, even if you write UTME and a school requires that for its part-time courses, the score may not be anything too high.

For these programmes, all that will be required of you is the 5 relevant O'level/SSCE subjects needed for the course you're proposing.

Once that is intact, together with being 16 which is the acceptable admission age, you're qualified to obtain a part-time form and process its admission.

Part-Time Admission May Require Registering JAMB But Not For Exams

Lately, most schools offering part-time admissions (especially daily-part e.g., FUOYE, MAPOLY, Ibadan Poly are requiring their candidates to register with JAMB.

With this registration, candidates will need to walk into any JAMB office and request the JAMB part-time application. After which they will be given JAMB registration numbers for future reference.

However, the JAMB part-time application is not the same as the JAMB UTME registration which all full-time admission seekers do go for every year requiring them to write the board's CBT.

The JAMB part-time doesn't require any CBT. Only to get your JAMB registration number. This is why some schools will ask if you have written the recent year UTME (e.g. FUOYE) even though you won't need the score or a higher mark but just to be sure you can produce a JAMB registration number.

Part-Time Admission is the Most Certain, All Things Being Equal

There's more than 90% assurance that if you obtain a part-time form, you'll be offered admission eventually. With all the requirements met for the proposed course and admission terms satisfied, you will be admitted into your proposed part-time course.

So, what are the requirements that guarantee your part-time admissions?

  1. Be sure you have at least 5 O'level subjects in not more than two sittings. The O'level results can be from the SSCE - WAEC, NECO, NABTEB, or GCE. That's all that matters to start with
  2. The SSCE subjects must come from the subjects that will be needed for the course you want to study. That's important!
  3. It will be wise if you're already 16 or more before you seek any admission, especially this daily part-time.


If you need much more certain and guaranteed admission, your best take is a part-time programme. Provided you have the SSCE subjects required for the proposed course, you're sure to be admitted.
