Should the HND/BSC di­choto­mybe abol­ished?

The dif­fer­ence is very clear, you can­not com­pare those who have been taught by ex­pe­ri­enced pro­fes­sors and PhD hold­ers and those taught by MSc and first de­gree hold­ers.

Isah Jamu Gamba

Be­ing taught by PhD hold­ers doesn’t mean you know bet­ter.

If the govern­ment can’t equate them they should can­cel HND from the polytech­nic pro­gramme. This coun­try is back­ward in tech­nol­ogy be­cause the polytech­nic sys­tem is aban­doned.

The dis­crim­i­na­tion be­tween univer­sity and polytech­nic should be abol­ished. Polytech­nic grad­u­ate spends four months SI­WES, two years for ND, one year for in­dus­trial ex­pe­ri­ence and two years for HND, yet they are still dis­crim­i­nated against. Why put them through the stress?

Isa Muham­mad Tudun-wada

How can you com­pare a univer­sity grad­u­ate with HND holder? What about a sce­nario where an in­di­vid­ual ac­quires an Or­di­nary Na­tional Di­ploma, then spends one to four or even 10 years be­fore go­ing back to the polytech­nic to ac­quire HND? What they pro­duce can never be re­garded as the same in sta­tus and qual­ity. Why not call the HND cer­tifi­cate ‘ Higher Na­tional De­gree‘ ?

Muhammed Ab­dul­lahi

Those who feel a de­gree is bet­ter don’t give point to sup­port their stand. I feel HND is bet­ter than de­gree be­cause the polytech­nic is tough on prac­ti­cals and they have more time de­voted for in­dus­trial ex­pe­ri­ence but in the uni­ver­si­ties, prac­ti­cals start in 200 or 300 lev­els and have less IT time.
