In the second semester, you have to pay the remaining half to be able to write the semester’s exams.

6. Fast Academic Calendar

The YABATECH Part-time programme academic calendar is fast compared to some other schools in Nigeria. Within a period of two years and some months, you will be done with your programme.

Do I need JAMB to Apply for the YABATECH Part-time Form?

No, you do not need to write the JAMB UTME exams to apply for the YABATECH part-time programme. This is not only applicable to YABATECH alone. Every school that offers part-time programmes do not require JAMB UTME exams from applicants before they can apply.

JAMB UTME exams are only compulsory when you want to apply for full-time programmes.

You may be wondering why this is so;

The part-time programme is designed for people that want to work and study at the same time. It is also an avenue for tertiary institutions to make a lot of money. Hence the application process is not as rigorous as the full-time programmes.

The application process is made extremely easy so many students can apply. However, if you are not properly guided in the application process, you may lose your chances of getting admission without knowing what happened.

YABATECH does not conduct any form of entrance examination for admission. Once you apply and meet the criteria for admission, you will be given admission.
