The fundamental principle of Technical and Vocational Education in Nigeria and the development of the New National Senior Secondary Schools Curriculum Structures in Nigeria is to allow everybody to acquire technical skills and to allow the youth to have an intelligent understanding of the increasing complexity of technology. This is also to match or at least to compete with what is obtainable in the developed countries of the world. A cursory look at the training of Senior Secondary School Education in the area of subject selection for the Technological subjects can cause a lot of problems to the possessor of such certificate as a dead end certificate that can never be used to gain admission to the Tertiary Institutions or University to study his intended course that is, Engineering or Technological subjects. It is however discovered that the implementation of this scheme can be haphazardly done by some Principals, Teachers and even Ministry Officials who do not even know what the introduction of the new curriculum of Technological subjects(Engineering or Technological) affects the admission to the Tertiary Institution or University in Nigeria or even in the overseas countries. The problems are identified and we try to find solution to the problems in this paper, so that our policy making bodies, teachers, principals, and ministry officials both at Federal and State levels will not award "dead end certificates" to those students who choose technological and business education subjects options in Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (SSCE).
