Yabatech and Auchi poly which one is better
Yabatech and Auchi Poly are among the best polytechnics in Nigeria but yearly the rank of the two schools do change. So one may be better this year but what about next year. But I will choose Yaba Tech over Auchi Poly
I was once a student of yabatech part time class of 2012/13 but was unable to finish due to certain things so I don’t know if I can still continue from where I stopped or just buy another part time form
Reach out to the department. You should be able to continue from where you stopped before. But it is dependent on how long you have been away from school
