I have come across people who obtain UTME forms, fill them and at the end of the day attempt the post utme of the universities they chose neglecting the polytechnics and this has kept millions of aspirants sitting at home for years without admission into any tertiary institution.
While some people are at home repeating UTME with the saying ” over my dead body will I go to a polytechnic ” their mates have already gotten their ND certificates. Do you think the level will still be the same?
Lack of information and proper orientation have been the major problem of students aspiring to study in tertiary institution in Nigeria. Most people are not ready to go extra mile to source information but dwell on the little they hear which are often not authentic.
Being a student of a polytechnic does not mean you will stop at ND level or HND level, there is room to go further and secure your masters degree even before a university student.
