Every year, thousands of Nigerian students aspiring to pursue higher education face the challenge of securing a high score in the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination. However, due to various reasons, not all students manage to achieve the desired high JAMB scores. The good news is that several polytechnics in Nigeria have recognized this challenge and have set admission criteria that consider students with low JAMB scores. In this blog post, we will explore a comprehensive list of polytechnics that accept low JAMB scores, along with some insights into the admission process.

Why Do Some Students Get Low JAMB Scores?

Several factors can contribute to low JAMB scores, including inadequate preparation, test anxiety, or even external factors that might have affected a student’s performance on the day of the examination. Recognizing the diversity of circumstances that can affect a student’s score, some polytechnics have taken a more inclusive approach to admissions, aiming to provide opportunities to students who might otherwise be left behind.

Insights into the Admission Process

The admission process for polytechnics that accept low JAMB scores is typically more comprehensive than simply relying on the JAMB exam. Here are the common factors that such polytechnics consider:

  1. Post-UTME Performance: Many of these polytechnics conduct post-UTME exams to assess candidates’ knowledge in their chosen field of study. This gives candidates a chance to showcase their skills and understanding of the subject.
  2. O’level Results: Since JAMB scores are just one part of the admission criteria, O’level results (SSCE, NECO, or GCE) also play a crucial role. A strong performance in these exams can compensate for a low JAMB score.
  3. Catchment Areas: Some polytechnics prioritize admitting candidates from their catchment areas. This can be advantageous for students who belong to these regions.

The pursuit of higher education should not be limited solely by a single exam score. Polytechnics that accept low JAMB scores are providing a much-needed opportunity for students to prove their capabilities beyond a single test. Aspiring students should research and consider applying to these institutions, keeping in mind that factors such as post-UTME performance, O’level results, and other considerations can significantly influence their chances of admission. It’s a step towards a more inclusive and equitable education system that values potential and determination over a single metric.
