A lot of ND graduates will be happy to proceed for HND after graduating but the Nigeria educational system does not support this…
1 year compulsory IT is mandatory for everyone.
To apply for HND there is need for you to complete your 1 year IT and failure to do so will lead to termination of admission.
Your 1 IT must be completed before the school grant you admission.
These practice has been in existence for many years now and polytechnics frown at those who tries to manipulate the set policy.
Secondly many tends to raise question as to the importance of this policy and we could not dig further that to suggest that it was introduced to give opportunity for students to know more about their course of study by working voluntarily for an organization. And this will better prepare such student’s for the task ahead after graduating.
