The JC route to university is accelerated and takes two years. The polytechnic path will take you about three years or so. Many students have the mindset that only JC students will get places in local universities. YOU ARE WRONG! No JC doesn’t mean no uni place. Last year, the number of polytechnic students accepted to local universities increased to 20 percent of the polytechnic cohort, compared to 15 percent a few years before, due to the six universities increasing the number of places on offer.
The choice between JC or Poly is not an easy one. This decision will definitely have a toll on your future. If you really are gunning for a seat in university, then JC might be a safer bet. But if you already know what you want, go for poly (like me). You even stand a chance at a university scholarship if you are prepared to work hard. All roads lead to Rome ultimately.
